1. Introduction

On german forum - and also here in english forum - we have several postings about download problems respectively unzip problems or crc error at setup. What exactly is the problem is not clear at the moment, but it seems that some older decompress tools can't handle the big WCS ZIP archive and/or the ZIP archive may have download errors. For this the "WCS Setup ZIP Check & UnZip" tool was written.

2. Functions

The tool can do the following:
  1. checking the big ZIP file with MD5
  2. unzipping the ZIP file if MD5 was completed without errors (optionally)
  3. starting WCS Setup after UnZip (optionally)

3. Usage

3.1 Run the tool

Download "WCS Setup ZIP Check & UnZip" and unzip the tool in the same folder as darkest-dawn-setup.zip.

Now you should have the following files in your download folder:

darkest-dawn-setup.zip
darkest-dawn-setup_zip-check-unzip.exe


Simply start darkest-dawn-setup_zip-check-unzip.exe.

The rest is self explanatory, but it is shown here nevertheless.

3.2 Check (MD5)

During the MD5 check is running, the following is shown:

[attachment=2:1xluc1j7]<!-- ia2 -->PicPick_2012-07-28_14_02_40.png<!-- ia2 -->[/attachment:1xluc1j7]

If the ZIP archive is not completely or have errors, the following is shown:

[attachment=1:1xluc1j7]<!-- ia1 -->capture_20130620_103750.png<!-- ia1 -->[/attachment:1xluc1j7]

If all is fine, you can unzip the ZIP archive:

3.3 Decompress (UnZip)

Select target folder. The subfolder "darkest_dawn_setup_unzip" is automatically created in target folder.

During UnZip runs, the following is shown:

[attachment=1:wcmz9go7]<!-- ia1 -->PicPick_2012-07-28_15_30_38.png<!-- ia1 -->[/attachment:wcmz9go7]

After UnZip a summary is shown:

[attachment=0:wcmz9go7]<!-- ia0 -->capture_20130620_103829.png<!-- ia0 -->[/attachment:wcmz9go7]
Now you can select if the tool shall start the WCS Setup. If not, the target subfolder with all unzipped files will opened in windows explorer.

4. Download

Hi to all !!
I have a serious problem of download and install !
I downloaded it (Darkest-Dawn-setup.zip) three times, with reliable downloader (IDA, Firefox DownThemAll), put it in a folder with the darkest-dawn-setup_zip-check-unzip, but every time the MD5 check say "the zip file is damaged" !
I downloaded from 3 different sites, the first from WCSaga site.
The only thing I noticed strange is that the size of the download is declared as 3.3 GB, while everywhere is only 2 GB. (2.097.152 KB).

Can someone help me ?

Ok, the complete Zip must have exactly 3.568.898.233 Bytes, not more, not less. And if only one byte is wrong (defect), my tool says "ZIP file is DAMAGED!".

Can someone help me ?


First, try one of the official mirrors you can find here . And, try to download without any special download manager. The DM from Firefox or Opera is good enough. I am using Opera btw., this works without any problems. Then after download, check it with the ZIP Check Tool. If all is okay, you can extract the ZIP also with the Check Tool.

If this will not help with the mirrors, let me know and we find another solution.

You have a volume limit? Maybe your ISP have a download limit for the files, lets say 2GB max?

If you reached the traffic limit, then the possible solutions left are very little. Have you no friend or colleague you can give a 4GB USB stick or a DVD so he can download this big file for you?
