Trouble Downloading User Scenarios

Post by Gerry4321 » Sun Nov 23, 2014 12:51 am

Hello:

In Firefox I use "Copy Link Address" and in BA2 click download scenarios and the red suitcase. Then I hit "+" symbol to paste the URL. But downloading doesn't happen.

I am trying to do this in the Campaigns folder. What am I missing?

Thanks,

Gerry

Anyone?

After pasting the link with "+" and hitting the check mark I get a message that flashes quickly on screen saying downloading started but no campaign name shows up in the main screen.

Is this a scenario you have previously downloaded? If so, you normally have to remove the old version before downloading the newer version.

If not, then maybe check the actual link you copied, make sure no spaces at the beginning or end and it must be spelled out in full, no '...' in the link.

Thanks. I did delete all the old campaigns so I can download the updated versions. So now I only have the 4 stock campaigns in the folder. V. strange.

unfortunately, that's all I can think of off hand...hopefully one of the Slitherine folks will chime in and get it straightened out.

Odd thing though...when you delete the old campaign, it will sometimes (normally all the time) show up in your User Download list...newer downloads should have the 'star' icon next to it.

Gets strange now. I just deleted the bonus scenario. Then copied JCB's link and tried to download his campaign. When I paste in his link, then the bonus scenario shows up in the list. How on earth could that be.

And I have both loaded up without issues...

I'll test them and see if I have any issues with them.

I am having this problem that Morge4 describes in my BA2 with the older campaign versions showing in the User Download List even after I delete them from the game folders and have download the updated versions. Does anyone have a suggestion how to purge these from the list?
