I'm trying to update darkmod from 2.03 to 2.05 and it seems to be in a continuous loop telling me to "continue" and "restart". It appears to be downloading a 1.5 mb file each time and most of the time it ends with 90% or so done. It has on occasion downloaded 100%, but the loop persists. Can someone please help?

I think the downloader/updater from the dark mod site fixes this bug.

That, or try setting "don't allow tdm_updater to update itself" in advanced options.
Please visit TDM's IndieDB site and help promote the mod:

that shall work.

If not, change the filename of the updater, run the updater again and remove the old updater:

  1. change the name of "tdm_update" to "tdm_updateold" (for example),
  2. run the tdm_updateold.
  3. After the update, you will see two tdm_updates.
    Remove tdm_updateold.

Or create a new folder, place the updater in there and run the updater. remove the old folder.
