    Download/Install problems

    I've tried downloading it repeatedly, run repairs of all sorts. My game has no problem downloading any of the other modules except the Syria map which every single time it gives me this error. It keeps changing but these are the errors I normally get....

    Seems your disk doesn't have enough capacity. Syria is the largest Map of DCS.

      What is the download size of the map and how much space on your SSD do you need. I read on the official site it's 120GB, is this accurate?

          Ok, thanks for checking and letting me know. Looks like it's the biggest map so far in regards SSD space.

            Yes, keep in mind that the final install size is usually lower than the actual space needed during the install, as the updater needs workspace to uncompress things.

                  It might be a DCS related issue, not a Syria Map related issue?

                    Hi carss. Can you please attach your autoupdate_log.txt file? It's located at the root of the main DCS folder.

                      Yes I have it saved....

                      However I'm unable to upload it since it says the file limit is no more than 500kb and mine is 1.8mb or something

                            It worked, indeed.
                            This is what we can read in your log:

                            Then, as soon as downloading starts, you have A LOT of "Got incomplete data" errors. A LOT means an average of 48 error messages/second.

                            Eventually, after 5 minutes of non-stop error messages, your downloader gets timeout errors:

                            It looks as though your connection to DCS download server had hiccups. Is your internet connection stable?

                              My internet connection it stable indeed. I've also tried this in two different locations, one of which has fiber optics, so it should download smoothly but it doesn't

                                OK, then you should look into these directories, empty them, and retry downloading Syria module:
                                • C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\Mods\terrains\Syria
                                • C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\_downloads

                                And if that doesn't work, try replacing your DCS_updater.exe with this one.
