NSIS Error: Penny Arcade Adventures & Whispered World

posted by SuperDrops on - last edited - Viewed by 858 users

It's all fine and well with videos being added and stuff... but I can't test that since trying to install the newly downloaded files gives me an NSIS error. Same with Penny Arcade Adventures, by the way. I'm a big fan of your products, but this is ridiculous. Get your product working, please.

  • Sorry for the troubles, SuperDrops. In your case, if you update to the latest version of DirectX that should fix the install error.

  • Still no luck. I'm getting seriously frustrated here. Getting this error message:

    Windows 7, card drivers and direct x up to date. I've redownloaded and restarted my PC multiple times.

    It is most likely a corrupt download.

    You can post an MD5 or SHA-1 Checksum of your downloaded files so someone can compare the value, to make sure.

    If the download is in fact corrupt, you can try downloading on a different PC or disabling security software that may corrupt files during the download. There are a number of possible reasons for defective downloads though. In this case it was even a defective modem.

    P.S. I moved this issue to its own thread.

    Thanks for the help. My next question would be what a checksum is and where I find it.

  • ugh.. this is infuriating. i am now getting the NSIS error. i've only tried for the whispered world.

    the download is coming in two files through the TTG installer. my folder has tww and tww2 as the two files. this is the second time i have downloaded the entire thing.

    this twenty bucks and with five of that going to charity was not worth all this hassle. i should've just spent the money the one game in the bundle i actually wanted from a site i already trust.

    when it is a 2 gig download, i don't want to hear that i have to download it a THIRD time!

    I don't have these games, so i sadly can't check the values with you.
    Usually that NSIS error should point to a corrupt download anyway, though.

    In case someone with correct files is kind enough to post their values you can try the following:

    Get the MD5 or SHA-1 values with Hashcheck by right clicking a file and selecting "properties/checksums". You can also select multiple files.

    Once you posted the values here someone who has the correct files can verify them.

  • Penny Arcade setup MD5 hash: 010d150aff5634f96034820b328d8639
    Whispered World setup MD5 hash 1st file (fixed version): 9dd92b2b55e62734c1f860b94c4294c9
    Whispered World setup MD5 hash 2nd file (fixed version): 87cd6abd0371b9724f2e5d4ae0454c01


    By the way, quite a number of us have been getting corrupt files on the downloads. It took me two attempts to get Penny Arcade in an uncorrupted form and 2 attempts to get a Whispered World that was uncorrupted (not to mention about 6 or 7 attempts in between that kept freezing up and dying, plus another attempt to get the fixed version with the videos!) My best guess is that either there's a glitch with the files on some of the servers or there's a bug in the software that's downloading them that's causing some corruption under certain circumstances. Telltale say they've been looking at the problem, but since it's still early on Monday in their timezone, it might be still in the works. :)

  • Thanks a bunch tcnuk, this will be helpful once I get them down

  • So, I understand it that if my checksums deviate from yours, tcnuk, my files are corrupted?
