    Yet another installation problem thread

    Post  wilting on Mon May 03, 2010 10:04 am

    Hi folks,

    So I understand that 7zip views the two seperate files for 3.99 as one file, and that I am to extract these to medievalII/mods/Third_AgeDaC, however I am still having problems.

    When I extact using 7zip I get the following error messages:

    0 can not open output file C:\Program Files 9x86)\SEGA\Third AgeDAC.bat
    1 can not open output file C:\Program Files 9x86)\SEGA\Third Agetest.bat

    Furthermore, when I actually go into the Third_AgeDaC folder in windows explorer it appears to be empty. If I look at the folder via 7zip instelf I can see the folders inside it with a little lock symbol beside them, I've tried mucking about with 7zip but don't see any way of revealing/unlocking these folders.

    I downloaded from megaupload twice to make sure it wasn't a problem with a corrupted file but the problem persists.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, I would very much like to be able to enjoy this mod.

    I am using windows 7 by the way.

    - Wilt

    Although this is related to another mod, maybe the hints there can help you:

    When I downloaded the files, they were corrupted once or twice... 12 times is very-very unusual... did you stop all other applications when downloading? (like torrents, any other pages, etc. If those run, they can cause some problems) Do you use any download manager programmes? They ought help a lot.

    Yes..Downloadmanager, I use it 2..makes no difference. And no...I have no applications running in the backround when installing..

    I also tried the vista tips from Archaon(turn off AUC etc.), btw. many thanx dude, so in the end I managed to download the 1st part and extracted it into a folder (no corruption). Archaon said something about NOT installing the 2nd part and starting the game without it.
    But I could`nt run the game either. So I thought I need the 2nd part 2..But 7Zip wont open it..then I compared both parts with hjsplit and tried to extracting the big compared file, but nevertheless in the end it was "corrupted" time again.

    I am at my wits end...the last thing I think I can do is waiting for version 4.0 and hope the best Crying or Very sad .

    Glad to hear that McHard! I was worried about that for you....I never had any problems (apart from aiming from a diff folder when extracting), but I guess I'm just incredibly lucky.

    Yes, what Archaon mentioned was that you don't have to extract part nr.2 as part nr 1. extracts both.
    I'm glad you've managed to download it, I hope you'll like this BETA version also. We're working on 4.0, which will change lots of features and gameplay elements, and many-many more!
    Should you encounter any problems during the game, just leave a post somewhere and we'll try to help you out! Wink
