hello guys, I suddenly have a problem with the promod files, I have done a new download from the promods download site, but every time I want to unpack the file with 7-zip I get a message (can't open file as archive) even with winrar doesn't work. what can i do to fix this? and the strange thing is that the game starts but as soon as I click on drive the game crashes.

thanks for the answer, it goes wrong in unzipping the files, if I then use the testfiles beta program I get 7 errors, I have been playing ets2 with promods for years and never had any problems. My PC has recently done a major update, maybe it's up to that, I really don't know

Hi,

do you use the paid download or the free download?

hi,

I always use the paid download.
Never had any problems with it, I think it is more a PC related problem.
winrar and 7-zip indicate the same problem

Hi,

the file tester only works with the free download, not with the paid one.

Is WinRAR (or 7-zip) up-to-date? If your WinRAR or 7-zip is outdated, extracting is failing too.
