When I use this tool it only updates to a June build, different from the link on the download page.

Is the tool out of date or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance for the help.

I would also like to know if the updater is working, rather than download the full build every so often

My anti-virus really, really does not like that link.  Claims it's a "known infection source".

I tried it after getting repeated failures through Source Forge and all the other links I could find for the game.  Most are failing on the last block of the transfer, but a few (like the torrent) are failing much earlier.  The torrent downloads 722 Mb and claims it's done, most of the other links stop at 923 Mb and never complete, and all the descriptions I'm finding are saying the file should be approx 969 Mb. 

So, my question then is: Where can a newbie to the game actually get a working version, capable of being fully downloaded and installed?

I have to try the nightly installer two or three times before it downloads the whole file. Which browser are you using?

Take your pick.  The last one I tried was with Chrome.  It failed after 20 minutes, I restarted and watched it.  After 2 hours it was up to 419 Mb (kept sending in bursts - send 2-3 Mb at 400mbs, then sit and do nothing for 15 minutes) so I went to bed.  Just checked now and it claims to have finished both the 2.4 and the nightly.  The 2.4 is 925 Mb and will not run.  Just locks up that window and has to be manually killed.  The "latest" build is 1.22 Gb and does exactly the same thing.

I've also tried it with Firefox and with IE (several versions of each) as well as Opera and UC - similar results, which convinces me the problem is not on my end, since the UC browser is the one on my phone and that d/l was done through 4g.

Hm. Have you tried waiting for any reaction from either installer after double-clicking? I only ask because, again, I have to wait up to 20 mins or so for any reaction from the installers once downloaded. Takes a while, but gets there in the end. Looks like you've d/l'd all the content, those file sizes look about right.

Twenty minutes?  Did you really say you have to wait twenty minutes for "any reaction" from the installer?   :o

That's ludicrous in my opinion.  Wait 20 minutes before deciding the computer is frozen?  Absurd.

Sorry, I think I'm done with this game.  The reviews looked good, and I was prepared to give it a good review as well if it worked but not with that kind of requirement.  Thank you for your help and your time.

The huge wait is not due to the installer.  As it is a single huge file, your anti-virus scans the whole 1GB file which can take a good few minutes.  Blame your anti-virus program or your slow cpu / hard drive.

Which is precisely why this should not be an executable.

Hello.

I downloaded 2 times the Windows version of the nightly build of v2.6-dev (to replace my "old" version of 09/2016), once in february, and a second time a few days ago. But after install, I noticed that the version was the one of the 20/01/2017. So, there may be a problem while generating the nightly builds.

This problem rises 2 more questions:
 a- is it still usefull to generate a nightly? Couldn't we shift to a weekly (ex. : every monday), or even a monthly (ex.: the 10th of every month)?
 b- would it be easy to have the installer show the version of the build during the installation process?

Hi. A few days ago, I downloaded the nightly again, and I think it is still broken. That is :
  • I uninstalled the old version (20/01/2017) from my computer, keeping conf. file and savedata;
  • I installed the recently downloaded version.

The timestamp of the new version was ok : 23/04/2017... But the translations I wanted to check were out to date (=did not fit the actual .po file on the main branch), and some features or bugs' correction were not here (ex. : No "feature request #4114 Nations graph colors should be consistent with Geoscape colors" commited in february).
