download not authorised ???

Archived from groups: alt.games.warcraft (More info?)

I turn on WoW this morning, and it starts downloading a patch. Then a error
message pops up: 'This download is not authorised by the tracker'.

Anyone had this happen to them?

    Yeah, it means Blizzard's patch downloading system blows syphillitic
    goats. Go to Fileplanet or Filefront or one of the other popular sites,
    and d/l the patch much faster and surer, then install it yourself.

    I've seen this on a couple of other patches, and especially when I've
    downloaded the patch early in the maintenance window. It's Bittorrent
    trying to tell you it's not happy about something.

    Personally, to date I've just ignored it. The download still goes
    ahead, and the results have been fine. YMMV, of course.

    Cheers - Ian

    Yeah. Try again later.

    Great. Now the game disconnects people every 60 seconds or so... what a fun
    new feature...

    Yes, it told me that several times but downloaded and applied the patch
    without a problem anyway. Ignore it.

    Hi,

    *Thoroughly hacked off now*. I'm getting the same message and have tried
    downloading the patch from elsewhere only to find that the only English
    version available is the "enUS" patch which won't install on my "enGB"
    version of the game - if anyone can point me to UK site offering this
    download I'd be grateful, in the meantime I shall just have to spend the
    rest of the day muttering about Blizzard's bizarre notion of customer
    support ... Grrr.

    Have tried "OK"ing/ ignoring tracker message but am simply getting nowhere !

    I love both you and Babe Bridou for providing this patch :-)

    Are they using custom UI?
