Starcraft 2 Patch 1.5 Downloader/Optimization problems.

Post by Goddilly » Tue Aug 07, 2012 3:26 pm

Hi there, recently, as you well may know, StarCraft II has gotten its latest update. Whenever I try to download it, things go wrong. Over on this link lots of people that are smarter than I have posted lots of intelligent answers. However, I, being a total newbie at this sort of thing, can't make head or tails of it.

K1773R posted a script that should do the work for me. My own adaptation, however, does not.
If you can see what I did wrong, maybe that would help. But this isn't the whole problem. I've a few times managed to get past the downloader, and the blizzard client then asks me to optimize my SC2 files. When I press no, it crashes. But when I press yes, it hangs on 0% (for over 4 hours at least) while this process should not take more than ~60 minutes.

Any tips, help, opinions, educated guesses or lines of code I could conveniently copy and paste?


-Thanks in advance, Goddilly.

Wrapper scripts are not supported here; if you have problems with one, ask the person who wrote it for help.

If you want help here, post terminal output from running the installer in the latest development release of plain Wine.

As for the AppDB page you linked to, there is a lot of information on it, so you are going to have to be more specific about what you "can't make head or tails of."

Okay, thanks. I got it working by manually starting sc2-x.x.x.x-1.5.0.22342-enUS-Downloader.exe after having run the script, if anyone else has the same problem.

I am having problems with this too. What were your steps for getting it to work?
