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

posted by DjNDB on - last edited - Viewed by 21.9K 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

  • After crashing the manual way I've tried the automatic download and there I seem to have a problem. The attached file does not have the extension "py" and I cannot open it with notepad either. What am I doing wrong?

    It is a .zip file. You need to extract it first.

  • Okay....

    I tried this method both manually and using the Python thing, and I'm still getting the same problem with the internet connection. This... is starting to get ridiculous.

  • Hey,

    Thanks a million for this solution!

    It wasn't all that was needed though. I had to also follow the instructions here:

    Before i did that, this is how it all went down:
    1) downloaded the files and copied them to the directory "%userprofile%\Documents\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead\SyncFs\Data\WalkingDead104". Temp-folder was already empty.
    2) started the game, clicked to continue and waited out the normal not responding -state.
    3) went to download and clicked "get" and it almost instantly switched to "installed".
    4) went on and clicked play for episode 4 and it started, but the graphics were buggy (missing textures etc)
    5) restarted the game and even though the files were still in the 104-directory, ep4 had gone back to "get"-mode and efforts to download it just resulted in the normal "connection failed"-error instantly.

    Then, as instructed in the above mentioned thread:
    1) i copied the folder WalkingDead104 also to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Telltale Games\The Walking Dead\GameData\Pack" and started the game.
    2) After clicking continue, the start screen where the news roll horizontally just would not go away (waited 5-10min), but the process was responsive so i just left it hanging there in the background while doing other stuff for a long time, maybe an hour or so.
    When i checked if it had advanced, there was the login screen asking for my telltale credentials.
    3) i logged in and went to the download-section and now everything seemed right and ep4 was in installed state.
    4) started to play ep4 and everything seems to work normally now

    Of course, what telltale is making us do is completely unacceptable, but it works now so thanks to all of you who help people getting the game working and good if this post helps someone else.

    Telltale: You owe the customers an official apology and a reasonable compensation for this mess. E.g. a free game that works.

  • @DjNDB said: It is a .zip file. You need to extract it first.

    I did (with winrar) - still it has no extension.
    Anyway - I finally managed to get it working by using the manual solution

    Backup prefs.prop
    Started Game
    Clicked "Get"
    Exited Game

    Downloaded the files in a seperate folder
    Deleted Temp Folder fromm game
    Copied Files in correct directory
    Started Game
    Got Error Message about License
    Edited Registry to initializationInProgress=true
    Started Game
    Re-Entered Login Dates
    Clicked "Get" (message "installed" appeared)
    Exited Game
    Copied Backup prefs.prop
    Got the game running

    Edit: I now also found the solution for my problem with the "py" file. The problem only occured when loading the file with IE - I tried it now with firefox and the extension is there - now I can open the file with notepad.

  • Thank you so much DjNDB and Spawner! I use Win7 64 bit. I used the manual download for ep 4 you showed me AND deleted the temp file before entering the game the first time. It works like a charm. I can leave and reenter the game. All my savegames are intact. Thank you.

  • Many thanks to DjNDB! Manual method plus temp file deletion also worked perfectly for me, on Win7 x64. I wish Telltale worked as hard as you did to help us. God bless you!

  • This works for me ! Thnx :)

  • THANK YOU SO MUCH for the files. I just got the game yesterday and was pissed that I couldn't download episodes 2-4. I am now in the middle of episode 2 were Mark takes an arrow in the...shoulder:confused: anyways no problems or glitches so far. Thanks again

  • This worked initially for me, then when I exited the game, Episode 4 disappeared, and says "GET" again. When I try to download it again, I'm back to "Download Connection Lost!". What am I doing wrong!? Help!?
