Updates using CMD command
« on: June 27, 2017, 09:13:25 AM »
I just realized that all my successful downloads were the result of using the cod command. if so, does anyone know what the correct format would be to download an update?

Who knows maybe I can get lucky and get patched up before Saturday night.

First attempt failed...servers busy.  Will keep trying.  Did you guys get a new update this week?

I thought for sure it was going to run all the way through but after 12 hours it failed at 60% for servers busy.  I imagine someone there might be clearing me off for bogging up the process.

I updated my wifi extender drivers which helped.  Also, I'm pretty sure after a failed attempt you must run the DCS repair or it will run even slower due to miss-matched file sizes.

If no luck before Saturday night I'll plan on being on TS and just let it run.
