I had a partial download in the old downloader but since the release of the new downloader, the old downloader refuses to authenticate (the new downloader authenticates fine). Is there any way to re-use the partial download from the old downloader? I live in a land of limited download quotas and would prefer not to have to re-download 2GB that I've already got.
You aren't alone. I've got a chessmaster_9000_part0.gogDownload file myself that I'd like to complete. It's part of the reason that I've been digging into the new downloader.
I haven't figured out a way to do it yet. There might be one, but I doubt it'll be easy.
The old temp file format was just: [gametitle]_part0.gogDownload and that was it until it completed.
The new temp file format is split into 10MB chunks. So a 901MB would be about 91 chunks. It'd probably look like this:
If there is a way to use our old partial downloads then it probably involves having split our temp file into the correct size chunks and hope that the GOG Downloader stitches them back together.
It's a bit of a long shot really. Hopefully there's a better way.
