Awesome, as for I2 I should be able to add it to the release tomorrow/this weekend.
qbittorrent seems to have worked. Downloading now. Thank you for the suggestion.

With the bittorrent "SEGS client" I'm getting these two error messages, in separate dialog boxes, upon loading the client:

#1 - Error loading required game data files. (trick load error)
#2 - Failed to load texture library. It is likely that City of Heroes is not properly installed. Re-installing or running CohUpdater may fix this.

before it fails altogether.

Console is showing:

Code: Select all

Running City Of Heroes
Error opening config file (N:/revisions/gimmecfg.txt)                          
Will proceed without source control

You probably have been disconnected from N:, double click on My Computer
and then double click on N: to reconnect it.
project segs
fullscreen 0
screen 1280 720
I don't have an N: drive, so I assume this is referencing a source control system used by Cryptic during development.

I've ran CoX-Auth.exe and set my IP. I'm not referencing localhost or loopback ip. Maybe I'm missing a step? Thanks in advance for your help!

As an aside, I tried to run the I24 client, just to see what results I would get. I rec'd the following error:

Code: Select all

File: bin/clientmessages-en.bin
Last Author/Status:Perforce.cpp failed to connect to Perforce.

Unable to locate bin/clientmessages-en.bin

Huh..

This looks like you might have a /data/ directory in the same place as a game exe ? This causes the client to enter 'developer' mode and try to load all files from unpack directory.

Hello all! I am currently a college sophomore double-majoring in Computer Science and Computer Simulation & Gaming. I'll be the first to admit I have no experience whatsoever with this level of server and software complexity, but I'm much like everyone else here in that I have a real passion for City of Heroes and a large interest in computers and technology. I see that no one has posted here in the last few months, and I'd like to lend a hand somehow. I'm ready and willing to learn the things needed if anyone is willing to teach. I started off by downloading qBittorrent and beginning the CoH client download. It is currently 0.0% completed and has been "downloading metadata" for the past 30 minutes. What is interesting is that my "Total Download" speed is hovering around 18 B/s (speed of sound, I know) and my "DHT Download" speed is hovering around 200 B/s, but the torrent information itself states that I've downloaded exactly 0 B and the torrent's download speed is listed as 0 B/s. Is this a result of the lack of seeding, or is this another problem altogether? In the meantime, is there anything that any of you would recommend I do to help the cause, or at the very least, learn a bit more about what this all entails?
Fly free, my friends. Fly free.

Hi erpmario!

Missed you on IRC. Yes I think it's probably seeding. Keep trying and let me know if you still fail to have any results.

Check us out on GitHub https://github.com/Segs/Segs. There are a lot of small issues that need help.

Thanks for joining!
