  • Error downloading Addons

    Hey guys this is my first time using Yoma and it seems like I'm having some issues getting all of the addons to download. Most of them completed correctly, showing green and OK, whereas a good portion of the ACE files didn't work. I'm getting the error msg "Can not open file as archive".

    What am I doing wrong? thx

    Some of the files, .txt, don't upon. But there's only about 3 of them

        What url are you using for the updater?

          Try joining the server without those first. If it says that your Ace version is outdated, then theres a problem. I'm gonna check my updater to find those files and see whats up.

            I have windows UAC disabled, just checked my task manager to make sure it was entirely closed out, and the url I'm using is http://sotd.us/dustinliddick/updater/ace.7z

            still getting the same error, restarted Yoma as well and that didn't do the trick either. I'm missing 428 MB.... Looks like someone else had the exact same problem, he had to reinstall using six updater.. I'm not sure what that is though.

                I managed to download ACE and such yesterday just as they updated so I didn't get this problem. However, I think afterwards they added a few files or something, because I have about 5 files that refuse to download, something to do with 404 errors. It wasn't a problem though as they're only maps (so unless they play a mission on those maps it will work fine)

                Maybe something happened to the server... I could try moving a file somewhere and seeing if it's able to download it again or if it errors... but I'm in-game right now.

                      right
                      the 480 mb missing files are not needed.

                      there is a small error in the config that i thought was fixed.#

                      Will look into it again

                      try clearing the addon sync cache in the settings tab. that will clear it out and force yoma to re-check the autoconfig

                        I cleared the cache but yoma didnt seem to want to work very well at all. I think afterwards you need to click the 'build arma2 cache' button for it to work.

                        I just deleted the clientside from the @ace/userconfig directory, checked, and Yoma said that it was missing. I click download and it downloaded it just fine, the unimportant files that are still red don't want to download still, giving me a 404 error.

                        It just may not be related

                          From another thread..

Inside of it make a new folder called 'ACE' just for the sake of keeping it neat. Then inside of your @ACE folder, go into userconfig folder and copy all four files into the userconfig/ACE folder you had just created

                          Make sure you edit the 'ace_clientside_config' file using wordpad or notepad and edit the appropriate section with your username. This will allow you to use goggles and such ingame.
                          I only have two files in that folder, I guess that's why mine still isn't working. When I try to launch I get the error that ACE_Tracking.hpp was not found. Im so confused.

                            When you go into your @ACE folder you will have other folders inside that one. Go into the "ace" folder and you will see 4 userconfig's those are what you need to move to the userconfig folder in your main directory.

                              I'm in ArmA2/@ACE/userconfig and all I have are two files, no other folders. I have ace_keys and ace_client_side_config. Am I in the right spot?
