Anyone else run into this?
I’m all of 10 MiB short of completely installing the 15.69 GiB patch. Download was complete and (seemingly) successful for fspatch.001, 002, 003 and 004, and fspatch.001 decompressed fine. I let it go for an hour or so the first time, then pause and exited. I’ve deleted the files waiting to be decompressed, and restarting the sim it cycled back to re-downloading those files as I hoped, and again seemed successful. But again, it seems to get hung on decompress of fspatch.002; about an hour into it again, and I see no activity from MSFS in Resource Manager.
Any suggestions on what I can try? I’m having flashbacks to the August 18th/19th/20th’s install nightmare…
EDIT: Watched a little closer to what was going on this time. The sim downloaded the fspatch.001 through .004 files again just fine, and sizes of the files matched previous downloads. Decompress of .001 goes fine, took about a minute, maybe a little less, then proceeds to decompress .002. I see a flurry of read disk activity for a minute or so, but no write disk, then those drop off and currently no disk activity from MSFS. There’s some ongoing network activity from MSFS, mostly small packets going back and forth to half a dozen different addresses on the order of 100-200 B/sec or much less, but with occasional spikes in activity into the KiB/sec range at other addresses. I’m assuming these 4 files are all part of 1 bigger file, broken up into sub-2GiB portions. I have no idea how the program reassembles these files, so if there’s some checksum process going on, it’ll take roughly forever if it’s doing it via a server at less than half a KiB/sec.
About 15 minutes in, 4th try. Will let it roll and see what happens, and update here.
