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

posted by DjNDB on - last edited - Viewed by 23.3K 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

  • I did as suggested in this thread and downloaded and copied it manually. And yes, I was able to install episode 4 this way.

    BUT - When I wanted to play and loaded the game, the game crashed and after restarting, the game was in the windowed mode, in another resolution and all save games were gone.

    I did change the registry as suggested in another thread, but the savegames are still not back. I will try tomorrow to delete the game and the folders etc. and do the registry stuff again.

    Does anyone else know how to get the savegames working again?

    The easiest way is to copy back the backup.

    If you didn't make a backup (why?), you might be able to restore them like this.

  • I guess, I didn't take notice of the backup stuff, because I pressed the link from another thread and there it just said "download the files for the pc and copy them". And that I did.

    I solved the issue by following your advice and restoring the folder from yesterday. It works again ... ufff. So thanks for the help.

    But seriously .. why wasn't I able to download episode 4? Why didn't TTG fix this? Why do the savegames get lost and I therefore have to make a backup?

  • This somewhat worked for me, except most characters are invisible while the rest is missing their eyes. So thanks for the instructions, DjNDB, it was worth a try, but I hope Telltale get their shit together very soon.

    I am glad you could restore them.

    Make a backup, in case anything ever happens again.

    You can also try installing Episode 4 again using the instructions in the first post of this thread.
    I don't know why some people lose their savegames.
    I also hope it gets fixed though.

  • If you get a crash using the work-around then right click on the WalkingDead104 folder you copied the files in to and make sure to untick read only (after copying the files in), when it asks if you want to apply the settings to all folders and files within that folder, then you should agree.

    The game seems to have trouble booting for me otherwise and throws up an error.

    Worked for me anyway.

  • Worked like a charm on my PC (episode 4)

    Thanks a lot !!!
