Cities XL Platinum. [SOLVED]

Post by alifhaikal7 on Mon 11 Nov 2013, 19:00

Hello,

Recently, I bought a cracked cd for Cities XL Platinum. But whenever I tried to install it, there's an error popped up. It says
"C:\Cities XL Platinum\Paks\land_lakepowell_01.pak

  An error occurred while trying to copy a file:
  Data error (cyclic redundancy check)

  Click Retry to try again, Ignore to skip (not recommended), or Abort to cancel installation."

I clicked retry like 7 times already but still. it still says the same thing. What should I do?
(I don't know where to put this post. So if I'm at the wrong topic, please move it at the right place. Thank you!)

Hello,

I'm not quite sure, but maybe the CD is damaged ? You can try giving the CD to another person, and then ask him/her to install that game - see if the same happens.

Have you tried looking on Piratebay for that game ?

Hi there,

You can always try clicking "Ignore".
If the game causes problems afterwards, then try updating it to the latest version via a downloadable patch.

I did what you said and it works but it turns out to be Cities XL 2012 and not Platinum... Please help me Sad

//EDIT

Almost forgot, I downloaded one of the game's update patch but when I tried to install it, it says 

"Game installation not found - aborting"

Hello again,

That's what I suspected in my first reply; the CD (or the content) is somehow damaged or faulty. You can still try giving the CD to someone else, like I said at first.

I'm sorry to hear that you actually spent money on that CD, but there is nothing much left that comes to my mind, besides searching for a .torrent of that game (on Piratebay or somewhere else). But maybe another Helper or Moderator knows more about that.

 Its okay, I'm going to change the CD anyway 'cause I still have my warranty. I thought it was my computer that cause the problem but after what you said about the damaged CD, I thought that I should change the CD. If you guys found the solution for this, please share it with us for future reference? lol

Sorry for my bad English and thank you for helping me. Smile

Hello again,

LOL, I think I misunderstood the  "cracked cd" part. Facepalm
Warranty on a pirated disc? Only in Malaysia! Razz

But yes, if that's the case, then it's most likely a damaged disc. Let us know after getting a new disc. (The seller can test the disc in his/her store)

Hi there,

Haha, that's a very nice store you got there!
You can either let them install the game on their own PC and see if it causes that error. If they don't want to do that, then just copy the files to an USB stick like they suggested and try again.

Hello there,

You're very welcome, glad to hear it's all working now!
How did you eventually do it? Via USB?

Using my hard disk Smile
The store worker said that a lot of customers complained about that game.
He even said that I should have copy the game contents from the disc and save it on a USB stick or something but I don't know how. Well, the problem already fixed and thanks again for the help! Very Happy
