yer thats the one that is giveing me corrupt files

 

Torrents are notorious in my area of the USA for screwing up hard drives.

 

I download using the USA FTP mirror. I have had no issues. The initial download takes around an hour for each piece of the total, around 5 hours total.

 

I have all the DCS stuff except CA, which will be rectified in a few days.

 

This link for DCS_World :

http://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/downloads/world/dcs_world/

 

I setup a folder in My Documents and load the .exe file on top, then consecutively down, 1.bin, 2.bin, 3.bin, 4.bin . The .exe file does it all as to setting it all up.

 

Now you have the auto-update feature. Not sure how the process goes nowadays with adding the modules. I did it all long-hand before the update feature except for the Huey, but I do not remember how I did it.

arent torrents supposed to have integrated CRC Check to avoid corrupted files when downloading?

 

Is it saying it's corrupt in the torrent program or when installing?

There is no way for a torrent file to screw up an HDD. It might spread files too much (then defrag) and it might task the HDD heavily while in use, but you have to have a monster connection to run into that problem. (Or have an ancient HDD.)

so are they corrupted when downloading or when extractin/inflating/installing?

 

Run the CRC Check as soon as the download finishes.

Basic check: make sure you have enough free disk space to extract the files.

 

Also check your hard disk for problems - if you've downloaded files from multiple places and they all show as corrupt, it's more likely to be a problem on your local machine that with the files (that everyone is downloading without problem).

 

In windows 7, open Computer, right-click your hard disk -> properties -> tools -> check now.

 

Make sure you have up-to-date malware/virus checkers and do a full scan of your computer.

No it didn't. ;)

 

Well, unless you picked some very dodgy client to install and this one came loaded, but basically - it doesn't have access to that kind of stuff. The operating system does however have access to that stuff, and when you install something that introduces new file associations Windows will rummage through it. It's exactly the same thing that happens as when you install an mp3 player or get VLC installed. I've gotten blank desktop icons from all kinds of things (for example, installing WinAMP). Got them back through eeither forcing an Explorer process restart or simply starting/stopping a fullscreen application. Caused windows to reload it's icons and to do it properly that time.

 

Reinstalling the OS for some shortcut icons is also a bit weird, just change them back.

 

Now, seriously, unless you've gotten your machine infected by something nasty through downloading a bunch of less-than-legal torrents that came with payloads, there is no way for a torrent download to damage anything - and even then it would be highly unlikely simply because such virii aree out of fasion. The proposition is akin to saying that tuning into a specific AM radio station will cause your radio to catch fire...
