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.

      The FAQ wiki is almost a proper FAQ now. Probably need to spin-off a bunch of the "remedies" for playing older TDM versions into their own article.
