On german forum - and also here in english forum - we have several postings about download problems respectively unzip problems or crc error at setup. What exactly is the problem is not clear at the moment, but it seems that some older decompress tools can't handle the big WCS ZIP archive and/or the ZIP archive may have download errors. For this the "WCS Setup ZIP Check & UnZip" tool was written.
The tool can do the following:
checking the big ZIP file with MD5
unzipping the ZIP file if MD5 was completed without errors (optionally)
starting WCS Setup after UnZip (optionally)
3.1 Run the tool
Download "WCS Setup ZIP Check & UnZip" and unzip the tool in the same folder as darkest-dawn-setup.zip.
Now you should have the following files in your download folder:
[attachment=0:wcmz9go7]<!-- ia0 -->capture_20130620_103829.png<!-- ia0 -->[/attachment:wcmz9go7]
Now you can select if the tool shall start the WCS Setup. If not, the target subfolder with all unzipped files will opened in windows explorer.
I wrote my own standard requester library so the tool have now completely english requester. No longer have mixed language with English and Windows language. This makes step-by-step instructions more simple.
New return code variable "rcfile" for the case UnZip has failed.
Less is more; all return code variables (rc, rctext, rcfile) are shown only if there was an internal error or UnZip has failed.
Primary changes: WCS Setup can be started directly after UnZip.

Hi to all !!
I have a serious problem of download and install !
I downloaded it (Darkest-Dawn-setup.zip) three times, with reliable downloader (IDA, Firefox DownThemAll), put it in a folder with the darkest-dawn-setup_zip-check-unzip, but every time the MD5 check say "the zip file is damaged" !
I downloaded from 3 different sites, the first from WCSaga site.
The only thing I noticed strange is that the size of the download is declared as 3.3 GB, while everywhere is only 2 GB. (2.097.152 KB).

Ok, the complete Zip must have exactly 3.568.898.233 Bytes, not more, not less. And if only one byte is wrong (defect), my tool says "ZIP file is DAMAGED!".
Can someone help me ?
First, try one of the official mirrors you can find
. And, try to download without any special download manager. The DM from Firefox or Opera is good enough. I am using Opera btw., this works without any problems. Then after download, check it with the ZIP Check Tool. If all is okay, you can extract the ZIP also with the Check Tool.
If this will not help with the mirrors, let me know and we find another solution.
.... But this is the page from which I made all the downloads .............. and even now I tried 4 times and keeps saying that the download is 2.0 GB !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ??????????????????????????? ............................Is my computer crazy ????
PS : I checked all the mirrors ; only "Shacknews.com" say correctly 3.3 before starting the download !
( However I can't download it 'cause my limited GB of my internet key connection is almost finish. In January I'll have normal wired connection. )
