Are you able to download the mentionned files directly from the LEX ?
It is weird, how does it crash ? Does it produce a log file ?

Uh... I can download them from the LEX directly. It just hangs on the

Sorry, me being an total and utter n00b indeed, forgot to change the default destination after install, and it was trying to dl to c:\python or whatever it was, and didn't read the error telling me that this was the problem. maybe this would be a good time to update it to have a different default download location?

Sorry to bother you

on the topic of improving it could we have a logout button? and would it be atall possible to either order the lists in some way, or group them in minimizable groups, for example in there respective LEX groups?

Thanks for creating such an awesome tool

Good to know everything is ok :)

And your ideas a great, but I'm a bit busy
The lists are sorted in the same way they are on the LEX however ( AFAIR )

Hey wouanagaina, I'm currently having problems with the LEX Downloader; the program hangs just after I press "Download Selected". I can't work out why this would be, I've tried re-installing the downloader, but that made no difference. I have used the downloader on this PC before, but it doesn't seem to work anymore :/. I'm running on 32-bit Vista.
Thanks in advance for any help,

Fred

Stupid question, but isn't it the same problem as star.torturer ( ie non-existent destination folder ? )

And also.... a security issue... with the password store, could it be possible to store the hash of the password instead of the actual password... BIG security issue...

Sorry I didn't think that my tool will be used on a public PC :(
I'll try to upload a patch

No, that's definitely not the problem, I made a point of going to the config.ini and changing it to the correct destination, and it still just hangs at the same place.

Fred

EDIT: Just tried again, but this time I scrolled through the list a bit and unchecked one download and it's working! I dunno if that was what fixed or whether it was just being temperamental, but it's sorted now.

The LEX Downloader is a great program. The download history page seems to be a tad unorganized though. Various downloads appear in the list twice, or even three times and there isn't any system that 'orders' the downloads (not alphabetized, ...). Are there plans to update the Downloader?

Great tool, but like on-site, as Caspervg says, organisation could do with some improvement. Sorting download history, at least by date, seems to me an absolute must. A find function would be great, but that's icing on the cake.

There is one other thought: Cleanitol produces - at times - a list & links of missing dependencies. So, why not make that list exportable in Cleanitol, and imporatable in the DL? Couple of clicks and you're up to date.

And if its written in C# or some such (not Python, though - sorry), I can help with the coding. If help is wanted..  $%Grinno$%

I'm having yet more LEX Downloader problems Wouanagaine, the program is just freezing while it is "Retreiving download history...". I have left it running for ages, and it refuses to work. Any help? I think I will have to give up on playing the game (which is rarely anyway) if I can't get the auto downloader working  :( - my download list is massive!

That is probably why... The download list is taking so long to download, and the ammount of information downloaded (just for the dl list) might be exceeding the amount that the dl manager can use.

Or maybe its just that you have an item that is corrupted/duplicated/invallied in some way in the online database... which causes the program to crash/freeze/hang when you donwload that record..

or maybe the legend himself can shed some more light on the situation ;)

I had the same problem, freedo. Loading up the Download History page at the LEX itself and afterwards restarting the LEX Downloader did it for me. Perhapa you should try that out.

Were some of the files in your download list there before the server switch?  If so it's possible the DB entry is corrupt or the relative path to the file has changed.
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it

Yes, probably most of them were there before the switch to the new server. I hope they're not corrupted - that sounds like a bad problem to try and fix. I'll try your tip Casper, and get back to you.

Thanks,
Fred

EDIT: Casper, your trick seemed to work, thanks! The downloader was freezing after I clicked the Download selected button, but I'd had this before so I knew that if you scroll to the bottom of the list and then back up and deselect and reselect a few of them it works. I don't understand why, but it does. Thanks for the help everyone!

Everyone, I have a problem. I registered for the BSC Exchange, and when I clicked on the activation icon on my e-mail inbox, the screen showed the stupid monkey with the CPU saying activation error. So I typed in the activation # with my screen name at the BSC Exchange login screen, and it showed the stupid monkey again. If you know how to solve it, send me a message or e-mail me at: game-nerd@comcast.net.  (P.S. I followed directions at the register screen.) ()what()

Monorail Master  - if you posted this in the correct place it might help as there is a thread for log-in problems. Can you let me know your LEX login username as Monorail Master  is not shown in the database?
