TWD OSX Episode 3 stuck at 99.50% - HELP

posted by blackvulcan3 on - last edited - Viewed by 2.3K users
I have noticed through a few threads that people are complaining of the OSX Episode 3 download stopping at 99.50%, as my download has, and after some hang time (30-45 minutes) crashes the application.

From other threads this occurred in Episode 2.

I did not have this problem, although I did have download issues for Episode 2.

Perhaps we can keep the issues isolated to their own threads so they can be better managed by TT support staff.

If you have the 99.50% issue (as opposed to random percentage download crashes) please list in this thread.

    Celebrated Labor day by trying again after seeing a few posts that someone had success. reinstalled the application, download took 35 minutes. Then spent well over 4 hours reaching 99.50%, was over 60% in the first hour. Seriously? No help at all guys?
    PM me and I'll get you sorted.

    To those who haven't seen it, here's a workaround.
  • what I did to get it working:
    went to ~/Library/Application Support/Telltale Games/TheWalkingDead/SyncFs/Temp and deleted every file inside this folder

    woosh, finally 100% :D

    I can confirm this also worked for me.

    My folder was hidden - if you can't find your folder launch terminal and use the following command:

    defaults write AppleShowAllFiles TRUE

    Then restart Finder with this command:

    killall Finder

    And your hidden files should show up.

    If you want to hide your hidden files again use:

    defaults write AppleShowAllFiles FALSE

    And then:

    killall Finder

    for those who can't find the Telltale games folder, well, neither could I.

    Saw in another thread about using the "Go To" function and googled it. so yea here's the steps:

    1. Open Finder

    2. Press "Cmd + Shift + G" to open Go To function.

    3. Copy in "~/Library/Application Support/Telltale Games/TheWalkingDead/SyncFs/Temp" as stated above by mi-KA.

    4. Delete the files.

    5. Open game, get downloading and be amazed at the lightning speed. Got Ep. 3 in around 7mins.

    Hope it works for you! :)
  • Hope Telltale are taking notes. You see, Telltale? This is how you get shit done.
  • what if that didnt work :(
  • Does anyone else find this absolutely ridiculous? I paid for the game and episode 2 will not even download. Now I have to go through all this other crap to get the thing to work? Really? I waited over 14 hours to get the download to freeze at 99.5%. Why can't Telltale get their act together, provide some real support, and get this problem fixed? Absolute joke.
  • I'm having the same problem on my Macbook, just like you guys said it is so frustrating to get to 99.5 and have it crash over and over.
  • Please if anybody else can find a solution to this problem it would be greatly appreciated since telltale doesn't give a fuck it seems like. I've failed 5 times now trying to download episode 2 and just like you guys say it gets stuck at 99.5 percent every time! it's so frustrating:mad:
