    VERSION 2

    I was working on one of my other projects and got side tracked and ended up making a GCF downloader lol.

    It just downloads GCFs and NCFs from Mastermind's server but since I made it, its good.

    I added the source, you'll need Visual Studio 2008 to open it.

    You'll notice I used public source code for all the calculations.

    Oh, it is the best GCF downloader...I love it! BTW, you could add a multiple downloading and a bigger window, and option to continue aborted downloads
     
  23. EriX920

    EriX920 FS Administrator

    If I add mutliple downloads it would slow down the transfer speed by 50% for each file. I might be able to add a queue if that's what you mean. I could also make it sizable if needed, give me more details and i'll get it done!

    I've updated the program. And, deltatsunami check the source this time tell me if it's "acceptable" by your standards.

    When did I say it wasn't?

    It was implied when you said tbh, tbh.

    Nonono, I meant for the person who said it was corrupted, just gave him the download links.
     
  30. EriX920

    EriX920 FS Administrator

    I reuploaded the archives, previous were corrupt bc my pc can't make .RARs anymore?

    Cheezeyninja FS Member

    I get a message saying "An error occurred while downloading this file" Then it gives a few reasons. I am trying to download SourceSDKbase.gcf

    BTW The first link is corrupted
     
  32. I'm pretty sure that mastermind said that he couldn't afford his server anymore in his thread so i guess that this program is almost useless now. All erix920 has to do is change the links in his program now I'm guessing to make it useful.
     
  33. EriX920

    EriX920 FS Administrator

    I was afraid that was going to happen. I need direct links for this app for to work properly.

    I could host you a direct FTP server for your program if you wanted, just have 1 requirement. PM me for info.

  41. Do you have a program like Winzip to extract the files?
     
  42. Megumi

    Megumi FS Member

    Well frist of all, I head this program is now obsolete because mastermind's server is down. I do not know if erix had another server linked to this, but mastermind's was the first server.

    --

    The archives show as unexpected end because of this website, FreeSteam does not handle zip and rar archives well, but you can still extract the archives fine.

    --

    If you need GCF / ncf files that badly, you could request them in my GCF-AA (search the forum for it.)

    "FreeSteam does not handle zip and rar archives well, but you can still extract the archives fine."
    There is nothing wrong with the website/server.

    Also, Eric how does this sound for GCFs:
    # 750 GB web space
    # 7500 GB traffic

    It is a very common error for .rar files to miss the last few bytes in a download on this server, that is what I have noticed.

    Probably the wrong mime/type for .rar in the attachments section of vB.
     
  45. deltatsunami

    deltatsunami New Member

    Why not just give us the direct link to the GCFs instead of making us download it from a client... Download accelerator much?

    What is GFC for?
     
  48. ...those are game files that steam uses so that you can run your game.

    Oh ww3, that sounds pretty good :-D, except I think I will discontinue this program and just add the directory to my content distro platform.
