Hi guys. Please help as the guys from Addon Sync (Dev Heaven) has advised me that they have not been working on this application for more than a year.
My problem is basically that Addon Sync does not download certain files correctly. I then have to manually download them from your site and manually paste them into the game folder. Once I have done that everything works fine.
However when I run Addon Sync again, the program wants to "change" these files again. If I do, the game doesnt work again.
So by now I have to untick a lot of files everytime my milsim updates the Addon Sync. It is getting ridiciously. One such file is the Torabora map for example. In status it downloads, but then gives me an unexpected error upon recieve blablabla in the status bar. Funny enough the file is actually downloaded etc in my Arma directory, it is just as if the game does not realise it.
I know it sounds confusing as it is. I was just hoping there was a known fix.

To expand...... If I then run the game, the Tora Bora Map will be missing. If I then download it manually and replace the downoaded file with the new one (same size evidently) then the game will work 100%.
It is almost as if the Addon Sync does not "synchronize" the file with the game with certain downloads. THis is however only for certain files (2% of the total files). It seems I am the only guy gettting the
se errors from the milsim. I am however the only guy from another country. Could bandwith cause this?

You'd tell them that from an administration point of view Six Updater is far easier to maintain, it's currently being constantly improved while AddonSync is not and that SU offers single click updating for the end users.

It'll be some work getting everyone switched over, but it'll be worth it. My unit did and it's a lot less work for our admins now.
