I recently updated from 2.05 to 2.06. Then, all my previously downloaded missions (which I think is most of them) disappeared from my in-game list. I can't see squat! I checked and they are all in the FMs folder where they've always been. Also when I click on download missions, none show up. And I know that two have been released since I updated.

 

Help!

Is there a fm list file in the fm folder?
And is your tdm folder writable?
(see permisssions: http://wiki.thedarkm...ng_the_updater)
And is the download server up at the time you download the missions.

I have a file called missions.tdminfo in the fms folder.

Yes the darkmod folder gives users full access.

Not sure about the server. I didn't get a message saying it was down, and I tried on 3 different occasions, days apart each time.

Do you see any separate pk4 files in the fm folder, beside the mission folders in the fm Folder?
If so, whats the name of the pk4 file.

And which fm are you trying to download?

There are no pk4 files in the fms folder, besides within the specific mission folders.

I looked for Mission of Mercy and William Steele 4, the last two releases.

I just don't understand what could've happened. I literally just updated to 2.06 and all the missions that have been in my list since well before release 2.0 are just gone. Is there a way to backdate to version 2.05 and see if that helps. If not, I'm sure downloading the game over again might do the trick, and just keep the FMs folder intact.

the fm manager downloaded missions Mission of Mercy and William Steele 4 without any problems.
(some days earlier we got the same-like problem, but then a specified mission was/is mispacked at server side)

Probably it's late to say this...

But I think the contents of missions.tdminfo and the recursive list of files in TDM directory (meaning all directories and files with their names) would be helpful to understand what is going on.
