Struggling with downloading the 1.497 patch

Post by HangYourself » Sat Nov 26, 2016 8:48 pm

I can't download it. I get a notification which says:

"Bad Referrer
Sorry, file request must originate from GiantsWD.
Click here to return to the index."

Does anyone know what is going on? :roll:

HangYourself, do you remember from where you tried to access the patch when the download failed? I just changed the referrer condition to ignore http and https. Please let me know if you can reproduce the error.

King, it happens when you try downloading most of the files by clicking the image, including maps, clips, patches, skins, etc. some are still downloadable though.

Edit:

I noticed that all the download links work when you're logged in, and it remains like that for a while or until you clear your browser cache

Sorry for a late response. I was a bit busy. Anyway, the content is now downloadable and everything looks fine. Finally, I am able to join the server. :D If you plan on playing any soon, just let me know via Steam or something :D
