"No Internet Connection"

posted by MoriartyisReal on - last edited - Viewed by 1.0K users

Whenever I try to download any episode (2-5) it says I have no internet connection. Seeing as I am on the internet right now, it is clear that my computer does not know what it is talking about. I recently moved and at my old house it would start to download but freeze at 99%, now it won't even start. Any help? I'm on a Macbook Pro 15 (a veritable dinosaur, but it does its best).

    Can you please navigate to your Application Support folder (/Users/spotlightmusic/Library/Application Support) and then take a screenshot that shows the contents of this folder? This screenshot should include both folders named 'Telltale Games'.

    Also, have you moved or renamed this folder at any time? When you downloaded the DLC episodes of Walking Dead, did they all download and install normally through the in-game content menu?

    Turns out I introduced a bug in the support tool recently, assuming Mac file systems were case sensitive as other unixes.
    So basically there is indeed just one savegame folder. Sorry about that.

    Sadly I don't know how to fix the connection issue.

    The support tool should work properly now, but i don't expect it to help in this case.

    here is a screen cap and when i bought the game i had to download episode 2 twice because the first time it got stuck i don't remember at what percent i found a back up of the game that i made a long time ago and replaced the dlc files and it worked for a day. Now my game is stuck at the title screen after saying connecting. oh and no i have not renamed or moved this folder at any time all that i have done is delete and replace the contents of the data folder where the DLC is kept

    There is only one folder named telltale games in application support

  • Hey, I have the same problem. I bought the season pass when it first came out. I later uninstalled the game. I've now reinstalled the game but when I try to download any episode, it says I lose my internet connection even though I'm online right now and it's working fine.

  • same problem here! WINXP

    Please try shutting down the game application and restarting your computer before attempting the download again. If you have a firewall or anti-virus software running, please disable them as this may interfere with the game connecting to our server.

    If you are unable to resolve this issue you may find some further assistance in our forum. One of our moderators put together an unofficial guide for Mac users here - https://www.telltalegames.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33233. Please take a look at this thread and see if this solution works for you. This may appear complicated on the surface, but the 'Manual Download' option should be fairly straight forward if you'd like to try it.

  • It also says that I don't have the license to play the game and must purchase it again. I started it and accessed the main menu. When the internet connection problem occurred I switched the game off to try again when it now says I need to buy it again. Windows xp is what it is.

  • Same problem here trying to download the new DLC. Just sits on 0% for ages and then complains about no connection.

    The absolute dreadfulness of telltale walking dead game launcher has flooded back to me now. It really is the most awful annoying bunch of wank i have ever had the misfortune to use. It is just not fit for purpose. The only reason i persevered is TWD game was soo damn good! I hope to hell you guys can fix it for season 2.

    We are aware of this issue and currently looking into a solution.

  • Now its even worse for me. I tried multiple times logging in and downloading all the episodes, but I get the standard 'check your internet connection' which is obviously wrong since I can easily post this on your forums right now. But now when I try to connect to the game, I get a new error message saying that 'the account I've linked to with Tell Tale Games does not have a license to this game, shall I go to the website to buy it?' Hell no! I already paid once! What now? I can't get past this and I already paid once. This is bull.
