Description HeX_Vulture 2013-01-03 05:14:54 UTC
Users have reported that with some instances download progress stops mid-way for the downloading of small pwads. This can be fixed by "reconnect"-ing to the server to resume download.

This is most commonly seen with small, one-map pwads such as judas or moo2d.wad. If you remove your pwads and join a duel rotation server, you are bound to run into it eventually.

This appears to happen fairly commonly with ss-map1.wad on the MWI1 and DTX1 duel servers. If it works as intended, just delete the file and download from server again- the third time I got it and Water, Bones, and JKist all experienced it first try.

I have not experienced this in years, and I just tried to reproduce it using my example 5 times and it never happened. Hopefully we never see it again :)
