I can't download updates on either download sites. [SOLVED]

Post by JessicaKitty on Mon 18 Jul 2016, 21:00

I have downloaded the RAR file off mediafire from the given link. 
For some reason I have only downloaded 2.69GB of the file rather than the 2.97GB. 
I have tried to download the file again and its done the same thing, it just comes up as a blank paper icon on my Windows 7 
Is there a trick/way to making my computer download the whole file? 
Thank you!

Hello @JessicaKitty,


Unfortunately that's one drawback of direct download links. I would suggest that if you are very impatient, try re-downloading from MediaFire again in a few hours. However, if you can bring up the patience, wait until @fsociety (a.k.a. Admin) releases an official torrent, maybe tomorrow or in the next days. Sorry you are are having these problems.

I can't download updates on either download sites.

Post by JessicaKitty on Tue 19 Jul 2016, 17:14

I have tried to download the RAR file at least 10 times on different browsers (including explorer) and I keep missing 1mb on the file (2.96GB) rather than 2.97GB. 
I have tried to download it on my brothers laptop and still the same outcome. 
I was wondering what is going wrong on my behalf, is it my internet provider preventing me? 
(I have tried disabling antivirus)
I am worried this will prevent me from ever update my sims direct or torrent downloads  Why. 
Thank you!

Although the download is 2,97 GB it is just over 3000 MB.
When your disk is FAT32 formatted, the largest file it can handle is 3000 MB.
Reason why you wwill always be missing just that last MB.

Convert your disk to NFTS

I have checked my disk management and my local disk (C:) is already NTFS formatted  Why.  
I'm struggling to understand what is going wrong. 
Thank you for your suggestion!

The limit in FAT32 is actually 4GB; see also this here (or google other sites):

What is going wrong is that the centralized servers of MEGA and MediaFire (a.k.a. the links that I posted) are struggling with the huge demand from sim-fans all over the world. A torrent would be better, but I am not in the position to upload official torrents on here.

Please try downloading again from the direct links in a few hours, and if that still doesn't work, I'm afraid we will have to wait from an official torrent from @Admin. I'm sorry again for the difficulties that you and many others are having with this solution of mine.
