[Thor Patch] need help on stuck at "saving resources"

Question

Hi, some of players on my server are getting issue with patching stuck at "saving resource" 

 

1. i used to patching with "grf" file to replace the old grf file (in reason for secured my data)

2. size of thor file is 185mb

3. It's not about Firewall or Antivirus Software because we tried to turn them off and still same.

4. It's not about "run as admin" 

5. most of this issue 95% happened on Windows 7 and only 1 player happened on Windows 8.1

6. using newest ThorGenerator and tried many of versions

7. it will stuck at around 70-75% of download progess and left the 124mb of "temp" file that's mean it not finish download yet and start to "saving resources" and then stuck.

 

P.S. I'm using Windows 10 and it working well no patching problem like this.

 

anyone idea please?  /panic  /panic

 

thanks a lot

I think there are some limitation about thor patcher maybe. Even a files with 40MB it will forever stucked during repack/saving, experienced the same issues last year when I try to patch the prontera texture.

 

Your best way would be just reupload the complete GRF and have the players redownload it, I believe it's way faster than download/patch using the thor patcher.

I ran into the same issue as well while setting up my beta test server.

I tried to make it as easy as possible for the players, using thor patcher to simply patch the complete client.

 

While testing it myself, i tried to repack the whole data.grf on windows 10 using an older Thor Patcher version.

I got stuck with that infinite saving resource issue.

 

So i tried to split the data.grf into 10 smaller patches (150 up to 270MB)

It worked just fine for me, yet after releasing the open beta, i've recieved several reports that they get stuck on the saving ressources.

A few people retried it several times until it worked, others weren't able to get it fixed at all.

 

All i can say is:
Either split it up to really really small patches (i would say max 150MB).
Or let the players download it manually.

 

 

I was talking with the developer of Thor Patcher about this, he actually made quite a few updates to the patcher within the past months.

He was able to fix another bug i've encountered in his latest release, so you could also try testing the latest one.

I haven't tested the saving resources issue as of yet, but it may be fixed already.

Hi, please send me the link to the problematic patch file.

 

From replies above, it seems large patch files increase the chance crashing patching thread. While I do have suspicion on possible reasons, but it would be hard to track down without data that can reproduce the problem.

Hopefully it's not another "Oh I fixed in the upcoming major release, but forgot to backport".
