Update to TangoAlpha's Hemlock Folly? Legit? appears in DIM

Greetings all.  I own the set Hemlock Folly by TangoAlpha (TimA).  Installed the Carrara version through DIM long ago.  DIM is showing an update.  Anyone else showing this update?  I've had some strange doubles appear in DIM and don't want to mess with a Carrara item if it is a phantom update.

    And I keep getting download failed.

    yep.. I have an update showing as well... along with other stuff that I don't remember getting or heard of... been getting some strange stuff appear lately with no idea why!

    I haven't tried download yet though... indecision

  • StezzaStezza Posts: 5,790

    confirmed.... Download FAILED!

  • Bunyip02Bunyip02 Posts: 4,329

    No update for me...

  • WendyLuvsCatzWendyLuvsCatz Posts: 28,577

    yeah failscrying

  • SileneUKSileneUK Posts: 1,702

    That's just weird, I hope Tim asks them what is going on!  I like and use his vegetation a lot, so I don't want to mess with an update if it changes the leaves or tree/branch structures.

    No idea what the update is for (it's a Daz O now - they don't tell me), but it kinda looks like they updated the file but didn't update the checksum. So the download fails.

    Anyhow, as Cris said, it's been reported, so hopefully they'll sort it soon. I might suggest you make a backup of the current product zip, in case you want to roll it back later.

    Thanks for reporting, Chris.  Thanks for checking in, Tim.  Thanks for confrming Steeza, Bunyip, and Wendy.  Thanks for standing ready, Silene.

    As of time of this post, still getting download failed.

    Similar to Stezza, I am getting seemingly random items to update or that won't recognize being installed.

    Tim, What's a checksum?  enlightened Silene

    I used to get in big trouble off my teacher in six class after she checked my sums and marked them wrong! devil

  • DartanbeckDartanbeck Posts: 16,505

    I wonder if they did something for filtering in the new system (haven't tried it yet) and it updated the package in some way? Hmmm.

  • DartanbeckDartanbeck Posts: 16,505

    Yeah, I've got stuff in mine that I already have installed - and that wasn't long ago since I've built this new machine. Not just update, but as if they're something I just bought.

  • DartanbeckDartanbeck Posts: 16,505

    Kinda nice, though. It reminds me to play with Hemlock Folly again! :)

    It's a number that is calculated from the contets of a file - using an algorithm - which means that if two checksums are the same then the files are the same: it's an easy way to check the validity of a file; if the checksum on a file matches what is expected then the file is not corrupt.

    Checksums sounds like a great name for a kitty heart

    I had over 500 files show up. (The hemlock folly was in there and wouldn't download.) Most the files were Poser Legacy files.

    I just marked the file Hidden... so, I don't have to see it there. Will wait till someone mentions it's fixed now.

    Yeah, that's what I'm seeing - stuff that DIM should know that I have, except that they changed the name putting "Legacy" on the end. Some of it I just recently bought and already downloaded/installed, but most of it is from a  l o n g  time ago. I know I have it all installed though. I double checked.

  • WendyLuvsCatzWendyLuvsCatz Posts: 28,577

    it finally downloaded and installed

    so did the other odd ones

  • DiomedeDiomede Posts: 11,427

    Hemlock Folly downloaded and installed correctly.  Yay!

    But I have a few other store items that are not downloading or installing correctly through DIM.  They are not Carrara so I will post in The Commons. 

    One example is Alpha City by the great Petipet.  https://www.daz3d.com/alpha-city

  • StezzaStezza Posts: 5,790

    I just checked DiM

    5GB of legacy stuff whatever that is!

    I love how versatile TA's sets are.  Come with several camera setups.  I think we might be on hold for additional stand alone sets while he and Howie fill out various Ultrascenery presets.  But maybe not.
