View Full Version : I shall be playing GPL for the rest of the day, for the FB Gods frown upon me

Three flippin corrupted downloads in a row on a 56.6K dialup...23 hours of download time...I have one more mirror site to try, and then...somebody owes me an explanation. Not money, restitution, a backrub...just an explanation. Tonight, i try one last time to get a non-corrupted download

Until then, I shall be ripping the guts out of a Lotus 49 at Spa, while wishing I could actually play 4.01m. I have playtesting to do and mission tweaking for my own amusement...but I can't do that until I get uncorrupted files...which I can't seem to download

I'm not sure if I should sacrifice rum and candy, like a vodun offering, or if I should burn some lamb shank like a Homeric character, or just spill some blood like a regular old pagan. The blood thing looks awfully attractive, but the clean up is a drag

Thanks all

Seems it may be a winRAR problem or packet loss. I'll have to check on it. If it's winRAR all the CDs in the world can't help me. But thanks.

Off to swap paint with Surtees

Ya, Chuck....if you need it and these other gentlemen can't arrange a delivery I'll mail one to ya.

BUT I have to ask if you've managed to play GTR, and what do you think of it?

I'm sure it is packet loss Chuck because I have tried twice on my dialup and wasted 25 hours to get the same thing as you, corrupted download. I lost connection during both downloads and resumed but, it didn't work. Broadband is not available in my area so I am stuck with dialup.

Chuck_Older,
GPL, great game indeed..

I would love to play it again but sorta lost track with it on the net a while back,,

Is there a site around with up to date stuff on it, although dm wise it's probably still ahead of it's time

Chuck, I'd be more than willing to mail you a CD.

e-mail me or PM me: boosh at kbuch.com

4th time. The same result, and the same exact corrupted files

This really is unacceptable

This time, I updated my WinRAR, so it must be packet loss is my only guess

Boosher- thank you for the offer. You should edit that post though, to remove your e-mail addy from general view.

OK

I'm in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Zip code here is 02130

Who's closest to me who can mail me a copy of the patch *4.01m*?

I'd like it in it's zipped form, I think. It should be fine as long as it's uncorrupted, and the self installer will make sure everything goes to the right place

I will require that you allow me to reimburse you for any money spent on mailing me the CD http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Jesus, I could drive there in 45 minutes. Through an elaborate brain washing program inflicted on my by UPS, I know your zip code to be 01960

LOL.........I just burned 2 version too. (Just in case)

They're sitting here now all warm and fuzzy looking for a new owner.

Hmmmmmmmmm. 45 minutes would be cool if I didn't need to leave for work. I'd risk it but I have the kind a job where they REALLY REALLY frown when I'm late.

At any rate they are here.
If interested we could do it tomorrow..(yeah I know it's fathers day) if not I'll pop em in the mail 1st thing Mon morning.

Hey Chuck you should look herehttp://www.gozilla.com/

It worked for me...And it shaved 2 hours off the DL

For future patchs,(or what you might want to download), it helps.
