Mod downloads stuck on 'Calculating'
« on: 2016-03-17 05:28:04 »
Hello all :D

I wasn't quite sure where to put this topic but this seems a good place to at least ask my question.

I modded final fantasy in the past before and I loved the enitre experience. Now I downloaded the steam version, installed it, and followed the instructions on how to get 7th heaven to work, which I actually managed to do (YAY, pretty surprised  :P). The only problem is, though, that when I start downloading the mods, the downloader just says 'calculating' for hours on end, without anything remotely coming close to actually downloading the mods. Even though I already read somewhere on this forum that it (probably) is due to the band width of Google Drive, I still wanted to verify with you guys whether its probably just that and that I should be patient  ;D or that maybe something else is going on.

Thanks in advance!

Did you right-click and choose Cancel in the Download window? That will actually reset and calculate the download again.

Heya,

Jup I tried that a couple of times, and two things happen:

1: All the mods that are in the downloader start moving inside the window, almost like they're on a loop.

2: &th heaven error screen on the right side of the window fills up endlessly with an error message about the download I just cancelled '404 not found'

I just don't know what to do atm lol


Is there a way to manually instal the mods by downloading them somewhere else?

At this time, there are no downloads outside of 7H. I may try to setup a section on Nexus mods, but don't hold your breath on that.

Not sure if I should make a new post or revive this zombie, but I'm having the exact same issue.  Any mods I attempt to download are stuck "calculating" and when i cancel them, they aren't removed from the download queue and I get a never ending series of 404 errors.  Is there any solution for this or am I just SOL?

Go to the FAQ post and see how to deal with crash errors when opening 7H. When you get it going again, try downloading one at a time.
