View Full Version : **Potential problem with d/l for 4.01m @ Ubi.com**

Twice now, I have gotten the same error on installing 4.01m, both times from the PF homepage, and using Ubi.com's download link for 4.01m for installation over 3.04m

I have a thread about it here:
http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/7361060133

Yes, defrag was done before download, and yes, I had v3.04m isntalled properly. The error is:

"CRC failed in fb_maps10.SFS
Unexpected end of archive"

Be aware that a possible problem exists with the download from Ubi.com's own link

There has got to be an error with Ubi's end.

Clicking on "Multiplay" produces an immediate error

I don't want my 14 hours of waiting back, I just want v4.01m

What the hell is going on here?

Worthplaying's link to 4.01 goes to v3.02

Click 'see more patches' or some rubbish to actually get the correct webpage http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Hey, not for nothing, but I don't recall signing up to be the web's troubleshooter for this patch http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

UBI doesn't care about us! that is obvious, have you tried to download from another site?
You can get the patch at Flying-Legends and 3dGamers, I downloaded from both and both sites appear to have un-flawed patches http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I'll mail you a CD with both the stand-alone AND the "m" version if you need it Chuck. PM me and let me know if you still want/need it. I can get it in the mail today if I find out soon enough.

Thanks, I appreciate it. Right now I'm d/ling again (at home). I started at 4:20 am so it will be done sometime around 2:30 pm

If it doesn't work this time, I may take you up on that offer

Yeah 3D Gamers would be your best bet there, but I d/l'ed from ubi and mine worked just fine.
Ubi support generally sux.

I got 4.01 from 3DGamers myself. Normally, I'd try Ubi first too, since they're the official site, but somehow I tried 3DGamers first for 4.01. I'm glad I did now.

Hope it all works out for you, Chuck.
