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

posted by DjNDB on - last edited - Viewed by 19.6K 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

--- 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

    Same here. I click get and I get the error. There ist however no f**ing way that my connection is lost since there is not one single problem in anything else. Shame on you TTG to deliver such crap downloader. Never had such problems before - why did you change the system?

  • Nope, this didn't work. I downloaded the Ep3 files, cleared the temp directory, and ran the game and selected get. It immediately told me there was a connection failure. Tried it 5 more times, same problem. Re-deleted the temp folder -- re-did all the other steps -- no dice.

    Now apparently on top of it all, my savegames are gone. I'll restore from the backup, but I have a sick feeling that I've just plunked down my hard-earned money for only 2 episodes.

  • I tried this a few times. Had to delete the .json files after saving all and the 'ingame' download said 'installed'. I attempted to play and the graphics loaded with corrupt static like graphics. Audio had Lee telling Larry's daughter she isn't coming with them. The game began to load and I see Lee in the middle of the courtyard with his arms stretched out (hands at shoulder level- spread eagle) same for another fellow facing the building and Duck's dad at the corner (arms down) staring at the corner of the building. Can't play...

  • I finally managed to download ep 3. DjNDB, I think your manual d/l method is missing a file for Ep3 -- I tried the automatic method and it d/l'd one extra file. Regardless, thanks for the workaround!

    Frustratingly though, all of my savegames are gone! I tried to restore from my backup, but it didn't work for some reason. Then I went back to a system restore point from yesterday when it was definitely working, and my savegames are *still* not loading. And yet I see all of my saved games sitting in the directory. How is this even possible?!

  • It didn't work for me on my PC. I followed the instrucions and it did say installed, but I closed the game to delete the temp file and when I started the game it was back to the usual get no connection failure debacle.

    You delete the FILE inside the temp folder and NOT the TEMP FOLDER. I think this is why it's not working for you

    You MUST delete temp file BEFORE entering the game

    Thanks for the info. TTG updated and added some files for the earlier episodes. I just updated the links for EP2 and EP3 to the latest versions.

    That makes it more complicated to keep this working for the manual download.
    The automatic download always uses the latest .json files, and therefore doesn't need that kind of maintenance. I'll have to think about what to do about that.

    The savegames should work the way you restored them.
    If you still see the save files, and the savegames don't show in the game, that's usually an issue with the prefs.prop being overwritten. Since you restored all the files, it doesn't make any sense. Did the game launch with default settings after you restored the backup?

    Can someone please upload the latest .json files for episode 2-4 for Mac?
    I need to check if the links have changed in there too.
