i have an extra tool installed (iobit Uninstaller to be precise) so i did multiple clean reinstallations.

That didn't work either. I'll test your unzipped version now and report back, thanks!


EDIT: I've already talked with Haagse via Discord but just to inform here: My Problem was solved thanks to the unzipped upload from him :1010

We both think that it might be vodafone, my ISP, blocking the downloads from the Maniaplanet filehoster or maybe just the specific update files for 4.1 as i was able to load up the titlepacks and play as usual after the Full Setup finished.

Just bought Valley today on Steam. Also having the same download error, so then I followed these instructions and downloaded the Maniaplanet_SetupFull.zip file. Also encounter corruption errors when unzipping (was using 7zip). So, I had to install the maniaplanet launcher without the valley assets and hoped it would be downloaded through the maniaplanet launcher but encountered the same original download error.

Tell me what to do next.

One thing which might have been missed earlier (I didn't read all posts): Make sure to turn off all antivirus programs while downloading/ installing Maniaplanet. Once the game is running normally, it's ok to turn them back on. There have been issues with some antivirus programs interfering with large file downloads in the past.

Also, have you tried downloading the full unzipped installer? You can always find the current version via your Player Page (https://www.maniaplanet.com/account): Click on your player name at top-right of the page and you will see "Install Maniaplanet".

You will then be connected directly to the latest installer file: I hope it's ok for me to put the link here :o :oops:

Good luck! :pil

Thanks for the speedy reply. Yes, I did turn off my antivirus and firewall. So I'll try these downloads see if that works.

(Edit):
Update: Nope, still won't download. :cry:

1. Maybe something is interrupting the process at your end: Are you sure no other programs are running while this update is active?
2. It seems odd that, after you have installed the latest full version of the game, it still wants to download this update :? :x .

I know this is frustrating for you but don't give up. I hope someone from NADEO might offer some help.

Cheers :pil
