[Central] Problems unpacking multi-7-Zip archives

Postby Kumacuda » 13 Mar 2014 01:56

I downloaded the part 2 of this mod, I'm poor and can't afford the full version, anyways it seems it's broken. 7zip refused to unpack it, I had to use some weird software to unpack promods-v152. I got this when i tried to put the two parts together, http://puu.sh/7texG.png. I am there for unable to use your mod and have to go back to my old v101 that does work.

Hi

It's not broken it depends on how you unpack it.
Depending on which software you use:
- Unpacking part 1 will automatically unpack part 2
alternatively
- Selecting both files and clicking unpack in explorer will merge them

The original archives have been made with WinRAR.

The mod keeps growing so future mods will have 3 or 4 parts, I therefore recommend to use the Payloadz service instead.

Is the money going to the Promods team or to the hosting service?

The majority of it goes to us, but we use it to cover our costs such as this webserver and our Zmodeler licenses and so forth

Ok that's what I thought, but wanted to know for sure. I wouldn't pay if everything went to the download service.

I think Kumacuda has decided to download part 2 of the zip file on it's own and expects it to work.
That isn't going to happen.
I can't really see what not having a lot of money has to do with only downloading part 2 of the archive?
Especially seeing as you can download it for free from this site anyway.

[Central] Problems unpacking multi-RAR archives

Postby islander1997 » 14 Mar 2014 02:08

When I download parts 1 & 2 from zippyshare, it only downloads a single .rar file, not a zipped folder. I can't extract a single file, so I have no idea what to do. the name is promods-v152.part1.rar and promods-v152.part2.rar That's all that downloads, no zipped folder, no SCS files.
Please help, I really want to try this mod!

Re: Zippyshare Download is .rar can't extract

Eh, that's what you get with a multi-pack archive. You'll need to extract both parts so that you get the SCS files

If you use WinZip, select both 'part' files then extract. They will be combined automatically.

If you use WinRAR, select the part1.rar and extract. The part2.rar will be combined automatically

If you use 7-Zip, use the same steps as WinZip above.
