[BUG] Updater is unable to download Shootmania-related file[fixed]

Post by roboguy88 » 25 Mar 2020, 11:41

Hi, I'm new to ManiaPlanet.

I just bought TM2 Stadium through Uplay, and upon launching ManiaPlanet was told a compulsory update was available. It appears I can't access Stadium until the update is completed, but it fails every time on the same step: about 99% of the way through downloading 'ShootMania.zip', I'm given the error 'Unable to download data: http://maniaplanet4-packages-nadeo.akam ... r5ILCA.zip'.
When I enter this URL in my web browser, it successfully downloads a file I assume is the one the updater is looking for.
Can I place this file somewhere in the ManiaPlanet directory to get it to stop complaining? Or disable the ShootMania download altogether? If not, can you please fix this bug soon, as it's stopping me from playing at all.

Regards,
roboguy.

If you click Retry a couple times, does it keep happening?

Yes, it's happened five or six times now. All the other files have downloaded fine up to that point.

For anyone finding this who's having the same problem, I figured it out. There's a Maniaplanet Full Setup file available at http://files.v04.maniaplanet.com/setups ... upFull.zip
Download this and install it over your current installation. I think it must be the latest version of MP, because it no longer asks me to update, and included the Stadium gamefiles.
