Cannot open .7z archive for rpg 2 (for EE 2.0)
Just purchased the RPG 2 source and 7-zip can't extract from the DLed archive. Anyone else having this problem? Thanks!

Try downloading 7zip to extract them.

In all honesty, .7z is a superior compression format, compared to .zip or .rar.

I've used 7zip for years and I agree. smile

I even re-DLed 7zip (64 bit version for win 8 64) but still says it can't open the archive. All the other .7z files I've DLed from the store open fine. Any other ideas why this archive doesn't open but everything else (mmo source, fantasy models, etc) extract fine? Thanks!

Hi!

What's the file size of 7z file that you've downloaded?
It should be 160,216,921 bytes
Perhaps your download was interrupted?
Could you try redownloading the file?

I've just tried downloading it twice using Google Chrome and twice my connection got interrupted and the download was only partial, once 60MB, once 70MB.
But I've just tried to download the file from the new store functionality in the Editor and it downloaded fine.
Could you try using different web browser? Once the new Editor comes out you can also try it there.
Sorry for inconvenience, I don't know why the issue happens.

Yeah weird the redownload was only 128mb when completed and same issue, but said it was a 153mb DL originally so maybe chrome's screwing something up (which I'm also using). I'll try good old IE and let you know shortly. smile

Hmm IE DL keeps getting interrupted, and oddly only gives me a file size of 1kb even though I watched it get over 30%. I'll try firefox next, haha.

On campus now and firefox DL was interrupted at 18mb. Not sure what's up, if IE worked for you though I'll have to try it again. Is there any other way of getting the source? Thanks for all the help thus far.

Hi,

I'm uploading the newest Editor version right now, where you'll be able to download the file through the Editor (it will be available within a couple hours, my upload speed is not fenomenal here smile, I'll make the post in "Version History").
If that won't work for you either, then I'll provide you an alternative way to download the file.
Thank you

Hi!
I've tried 2 times to download ERPG2 using Store in the EE 2.0 Editor, both times worked ok. Hope it will do for you as well, please let me know.

Heyo, DLed the new editor and found the store UI. I logged in and began the download, however all three attempts stop at around 30% of the progress bar, stating "Error occurred". :(

I just checked this quickly , with the Bloody Massacre source code, and was seeing the same thing, the DL was getting interrupted around 60-80%. In my case, the cause for this was my antivirus, Avast. For some reason, it was killing the DL. I stopped Avast long enough to do the DL, and it went through fine.

Hopefully that helps for you.
