I have TDM 2.06 and downloaded CoS1: Pearls and Swine, however I can't see it in the New Mission window, it is also still visible in the list of mission available for download

 

I've tried all FAQ ways and still nothing

 

Is there something I'm missing here?

Did you download it manually or from within the game?

From within game down loader would not work kept saying can not connect to server??  So i downloaded from websites and it works fine.  I think this started when I plugged in a thumb drive into my PC and it changed the drive letter of my passport solid state hard drive where I keep the Darkmod.  If  this is the case how do I correct it?

I think the post above is to for a different topic

 

In my case I've tried download in-game first, then when it wasn't on the list, I've deleted the file and downloaded manually, but the same result

Yesterday there are problems with one of the download server.

(more info see: http://forums.thedar...-new-missions/)

Please check if you can download the mission again.

 

If that dont work, please check inside the fm-folder inside your tdm folder.

If there is a folder named to that mission then check the content in the fm folder the file "missions.tdminfo".

Still no luck

 

file is in fm-folder, but the mission is not on the list within missions.tdminfo

 

I've tried adding it manually to missions.tdminfo but still it's not present in game

Then remove the folder inside the fm folder and download the mission again from the mission manager.
And to prevent some write errors, give everyone write acces to the tdm folder
(rightclick on tdm folder > properties > security > edit > users > full access)

it didn't help

 

in game download only puts the file into fm-folder but doesn't create a folder for the mission

 

the only thing I noticed is that the mission in the in-game downloader is 23mb but the actual file is only 13mb, but I'm not sure if that's because it's packed

I try it myself and got the same problem.

Mission CoS1: Pearls and Swine needs to repacked on the download mirror.
Fm manager only downloaded only the pk4 file and didnt create a folder for it.
And the content of the pk4 is not structured following the darkmod rules.

But its easy to fix that. Unpack the pk4, move the content outside cos1_pearlsnswine folder and pack the files again.

Tried it a day ago and reproduced the problem.

 

Mission CoS1: Pearls and Swine needs to repacked on the download mirror.
Fm manager only downloaded only the pk4 file and didnt create a folder for it.
And the content of the pk4 is not structured following the darkmod rules.

Please, could someone familiar with mission manager do this?

I see that I have permissions to do it myself, but since I have never done it, I would need considerable time to do it without breaking more stuff  :laugh:
