TWD Season 1: Unofficial alternative PC/Mac episode download options

posted by DjNDB on - last edited - Viewed by 21K users

Please make a backup of the games savegame folder first, as described below, so you can restore it, should anything happen:

Note to Windows XP users:
The paths are different. Please replace all instances of
%userprofile%\Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead\
with
%userprofile%\My Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead\
(International users: Also exchange "My Documents" for the translation into your language from here on)

Here are two ways of downloading the episodes outside of the game.

I highly recommend using the semi-automatic download on PC and the Automatic Download on Mac
It's way less work, and it checks the files for errors. The manual download bypasses error checking and may cause crashes in the game, in case files got corrupted during the download.

Automatic Download:
This is currently only available on Mac. It will automatically make a backup of your savegames, download the episodes, and move them to the correct location.
Please download the TWD_Mac_Downloader_auto.zip and unzip it.
If you don't want to download a certain episode, delete the .json file (e.g. WalkingDead103.json) from the unzipped folder.
Double click on "download.sh.command". A window might pop up. Click "Open".
The script will run in a terminal window.
Once it's done it will show "Process completed" at the bottom of the window. Then close the window, start the game, and press "Get" for each episode your downloaded. They should install right away.

Semi-automatic Download:
I wrote a python script that semi-automatically downloads the episodes.

- Make a backup copy of:
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Telltale Games/TheWalkingDead/
PC: %userprofile%\Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead\

- Delete the Temp files from:
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Telltale Games/TheWalkingDead/SyncFS/Temp/
PC: %userprofile%\Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead\SyncFs\Temp

- Download and install Python. Make sure you get Python version 2.7.x, as the 3.x version is not compatible with the script.

- Download and unzip the python script
Mac: Mac_Downloader.zip (Backup download link)
PC: PC_Downloader.zip (Backup download link)


- If you don't want to download a certain episode, delete the .json file (e.g. WalkingDead103.json) from the unzipped folder.

- Now start the TWD_Json_Downloader.py.
Mac: Double click TWD_Json_Downloader.py to open the script in IDLE, and then press F5 to run it
PC: Double click TWD_Json_Downloader.py

It will then download the Episodes into individual folders e.g. "WalkingDead102".

- Copy these folders to:
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Telltale Games/TheWalkingDead/SyncFs/Data/
PC: %userprofile%\Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead\SyncFs\Data

- Start the game and press "GET" in the "Download content" menu for each episode you downloaded. It should show as "installed" within less than a minute.

- Close the game and again delete the Temp files from:
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Telltale Games/TheWalkingDead/SyncFS/Temp/
PC: %userprofile%\Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead\SyncFs\Temp

If you should run into any trouble with the script please let me know. I did my best to make it work without issues.

Manual Download:
Please seriously consider using the semi-automatic download.
The manual download bypasses checking the files for errors that can occur during download, and might cause random crashes/freezes in the game.
Also it is a tedious and error-prone method.

- Make a backup copy of:
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Telltale Games/TheWalkingDead/
PC: %userprofile%\Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead\

- Download the files below individually by episode into a separate folder, so you don't mix them up.

- Copy the files into the folder specified below for each episode. If it doesn't exist, create it.

- Delete the Temp files from:
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Telltale Games/TheWalkingDead/SyncFS/Temp/
PC: %userprofile%\Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead\SyncFs\Temp

- Start the game and press "GET" in the "Download content" menu for each episode you manually downloaded. It should show as "installed" within less than a minute.

- Close the game and again delete the Temp files from:
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Telltale Games/TheWalkingDead/SyncFS/Temp/
PC: %userprofile%\Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead\SyncFs\Temp

EDIT: 2013-01-02
Added some nice and important features.
- Downloaded files are now MD5 checked to prevent issues with corrupt downloads.
--- The script indefinitely retries downloading corrupt files.
- Existing files are MD5 checked and not downloaded again, if valid.
- Show size of files
- Show download progress every 5 percent
EDIT: 2013-01-03
- Fixed progress indication in Mac Terminal

  • It worked for me (Win7) But now the Save Games are gone -.-'

    Yup ... I finally got it to work but now all I see are three empty boxes labeled New Game ... seems all of my previous games are lost *sigh*

  • @buntah said: Well, that didn't work for me. I downloaded the episode 4 files and put them in the folder. Then I opened the game and Clicked "get" and it immediately said it was installed. So, I tried to play the game and it locked up. So, I shut it down and restarted it and Now the game opens in Window mode (instead of full screen like it always did before and asks me for my user name and password to unlock the game (like the first time I played Episode 1) and when I enter the info, the games locks up and doesn't go any further *sigh* I checked the Temp folder and it's empty ... I moved all of the downloaded files out and tried to play the game again, but I'm still in window mode and being asked for my user name and password ... grrrrrrrr

    UPDATE: I finally got back into the game and now when I went to click "get", it says "coming soon" ... maybe TellTale has removed episode 4 until they fix its bugs?

    Word for word, this exactly describes the sequence I went through.

    And add to that, my save games are gone too, and at the end of it all, I'm seeing the "Get" button again, and I'm back at 0% with no internet connection. One step forward, two steps back.

  • Well the Save Game Files are still there, but the prefs.prop (or what it's called) file seems to be corrupt due to the crash of the game previously.

    Awesome! :rolleyes:

  • I'm still fucking around with episode 3. Tried EVERY possible fix I could find on the forums, but nothing works.
    If I only could get as far as to try and download episode 4. I don't even know what happens in episode 3 yet!!

  • OP, I would like to thank you for providing these links with the extra bonus feature of having ALL SAVE GAMES AND SETTINGS deleted. And thank you also for not even hinting at this possibility in your post; made the surprise that much more meaningful when it happened.


    Does anyone have a fix for this?

    Thanks for the feedback. I am doing some updates to the first post right now.

    That was entirely unexpected. Several people also have reported that with the regular installation, so it's not the method.
    You might be able to restore your savegames by using right click, "settings", "restore previous versions".
    If the files are still there, use it on the prefs.prop. If they are gone, use it on the "The Walking dead" folder.
    Make a backup of the folder first.

  • @DjNDB Don't worry, it's definitly not your fault.

    First, I deleted my backup too soon.
    Second, TTG f***ed up their release (again?)
    Third, it's release day, nothing is gonna happen as it should.

  • Downloaded all files. It jumps to 60% on installation, then immediately fails. Which is exactly what happens without installing all this.

    Anything I'm doing wrong?
    EDIT:Actually this may be it, are the "WalkingDead104" folders supposed to be where you said already there for me, or are they not there and I have to make a folder, because that is what I had to do for 104 and 101-103 aren't even there.
    EDIT2: The hell? Manually searching "WalkingDead104" gives me the proper folder... in the location I was already at, but this one has walkingdead103 etc... as well. Wonder why they didn't show. Trying again
    now.
    EDIT3: AAAANNNND it failed. instantly says I've lost connection.
    EDIT4: Wait, my Walking Dead files are in "GameSync" is this correct? Should I move those to Walking Dead?

  • DJNDB it seems like a lot of people are having their saves deleted and a lot with the internet connection issue such as myself. I'm delighted to say that I have not tried your method due to some issues that are occurring. I have made a back up but I still don't want to risk it for a biscuit ;)

  • hm in my game it still says "coming soon" under the 4th episode.

    *fixed by reinstalling the game* i usually delete all saved games with the installation and later copy and paste a back up into the folders.
