I have tried to download new mission within the game and get cannot connect to server.  This started happening after I updated to 2.06.  I know I am connected because I ran the updater again and it says all files up to date and I am now on this Forum typing this.

I think fidcal's mirror is having problems.

 

Go to the missions page and use the download links from Taaaki's mirror.

The in game down loader is not working it says can not connect to server?  But I can download it from the web sites and it works fine.  I think this started after I used a thumb drive and it changed the drive letter of my solid state hard drive from G: to H:  If this is the case how do I fix it?  Dark mod is on this hard drive and it is still working just fine but the in game down loader does not.

We are down to one mirror then by the sounds of it, I think this would be a goog tike to put feelers out for other mirrors so we dont over load the only one we have.

Ok I change the drive letters back to what they were but the in game down loader gives me:   Unable to contact mission archive,   Cannot connect to server error

 

I don't know what has gone wrong with my install.  The game works fine it is just the down loader.   I have look in all of the settings options to no avail.

Downloading missions in-game works fine for me (but only for exe-file which I don't restrict with Windows firewall).

I have tried to copy my TDM 2.06 installation to other drive, and I can still download missions from the copy without problems.

 

I think you should check to things:

1) That everyone is allowed to write into the directory with TDM installation. If it is write-protected or has restricted permissions, then TDM cannot save downloaded file there, and most likely reports a generic error.

2) Check that you don't have any type of firewall forbiding TDM internet access.
