Torrent error - Files missing from job
 
After trying the FilePlanet download (still at 15 hours estimated...) I thought I'd try a torrent.

Bittorrent, and now utorrent, both give the the message "Error: Files missing from job. Please recheck".

I'm completely new to torrents, so if I'm doing something daft, I wouldn't be surprised.

I've been running the torrent w/ no problem....

64% complete after 7 hrs :)

Re-download the .torrent file link

Make sure you install to a completely new location, you can't be trying to write the same installs to the same location from two different sources. So basically, if your putting FPs downloading somewhere say c:\STO ...install the torrent version anywhere BUT there or you'll crash it.

Do I need to do any more than paste the URL into the "Add torrent from URL" box?

Apart from press "OK" I mean...

I'm using the URL for the torrent given on the official download page.

That'll work, or just right click and Save-As and then open it.

Have you tried saving the .torrent file to disk then loading that onto your torrent client?

Thanks, DaWookie, for the advice there. Seems to be working now, although not very quickly (very few connections available)....1d to estimated completion!

Still, I'll get there eventually!

Cheers.

It'll speed up over time. Thats how P2P/ torrents work.

Make sure you upload at a fair speed, but don't kill your connection...that might help you. So if you have a 512k upstream speed ..set your upload limit to like 40k tops. If you exceed that you'll likely start to lower the speed at which you can download :(.

Glad to hear its working again.

I've managed to add some trackers to it. Here is a list of trackers that work:

http://tracker.crypticstudios.com/announce.php

http://tracker.bittorrent.am/announce

http://denis.stalker.h3q.com:6969/announce

http://www.torrent-downloads.to:2710/announce

http://tracker.torrent.to:2710/announce

http://tracker.openbittorrent.com:80/announce

http://tracker.publicbt.com:80/announce

http://denis.stalker.h3q.com:80/announce.php

A line needs to separate each once for the trackers to work. Perhaps if more of us add trackers that have the 100% it will be faster? I dunno, this is the first time I've ever added trackers to a torrent file.

Trackers are really not needed anymore with the modern torrent clients, but it doesnt hurt anything either.
