Installation Error: Unexpected CURL error 56


Recommended Posts

Hi, I've tried to install the latest version of TDM four times now (no previous installation), each time I get the same error:

ERROR: Unexpected CURL error 56 on URL

The urls seem to change (examples are http://darkmod.taaki.za.net/release/zipsync/release/release200/tdm_textures_metal01.pk4, /tdm_models02.pk4, /tdm_textures_carpet01.pk4) but the installation always fails around 20% of the way through.

Am I doing something wrong? I tried the default mirror and the German mirror (also version 211 just in case). I'm using Windows 10 (64 bit) and don't seem to be having any internet issues that would cause the error.

Any help would be appreciated!

It would be great if you attach all the tdm_installer_NNNNNNNNNN.log files, maybe I'll see something interesting there.

You can try to enable "Advanced Settings \ No multipart byteranges", maybe something in your networks breaks them.

But yes, getting the full download is the easier solution if you don't intend to switch between various versions.

@stgatilov where would I find the file for the first attempt? Now that I've gone through the installation with a separate link, would the .log file get overridden with new installation info or would you still be able to use it?

If you did not delete the contents of the directory where you installed TDM with tdm_installer, all the log files should be there. Their filenames are suffixed with data&time, so they can only be removed manually.

If you find them, you can just share all of them, I'll find the error in the logs.

      Happy birthday to me!
      Yes, today's my birthday and as much as I want to play The Dark Mod, I won't until it's late Autumn, where it should be a bit chilly in my place and there's some wind too.
      For now, it's time to enjoy my birthday, if any of you want to play a great fan mission in my honour...Well that's asking too much, just play the mission because it's fun, not because of me, enjoy it yourself! 💪

      Took a break from TDM until I got my backlog under control. It's been months and it's still not "under control". Damnit.

      I sleep well at night knowing the player will never see the absolute nightmare that is my sealing brushwork outside the playable area. Only the pointfile can judge me now.

      Somehow I admire the fact that the material from Dune has now been filmed for the third time. Personally, I could never do much with the material, but as a child of the 80s, I of course know the David Lynch movie...and that movie was at least funny!
