Default "Is my alice download corrupt?" - 10-20-2010, 08:34 PM

Maybe! We've all had corrupt downloads, and it would be much better to know about them before we eat ourselves over an error. I'm running md5 checksums on all of the downloads. I will post them here as I get them.

2.2 (9-1-2010) - 3c9ddd937b046b459982993576f11761
2.0 (04-05-2005) - 4434193a7ce42716ed36439d988d153c

I'll see if I can make a simple little exe file for checking alice file checksums, but until then, there are plenty of software packages available.

Default Checker! - 11-07-2010, 06:15 PM

Ok! Here's a simple checker for you alice downloads! Just run the exe. It will ask you to open your alice zip, and then it will hash it and tell you the results. If it doesn't match anything, you may have a corrupt file. Note that this is only for the newest 2.2 and the newest 2.0. I don't know the hashes for the others, at least at the moment. If you don't feel confortable running my zips, you can open up a python interpreter and run:
Code:
>>>import hashlib
>>>file = open(FILENAME,'r')
>>>data = hashlib.md5(file.read()).hexdigest()
>>>file.close()
>>>print data
DATA WILL APPEAR HERE

I downloaded a pack by someone (arty-fishel, I think?) and it was never corrupt.

Maybe something in the PC is causing any recent files to go corrupt. Virus, Trojan, Malware...

...but it also depends on the operating system.

Windows:

Malicious files, or an application causes a file to go corrupt. (Make sure it wasn't system32 as the victim)

Macintosh:

As far as I know, if the PC the Macintosh is on is old, then you (might) have to download files twice.

Linux:

Download files once and they'll work.

My only problem: when I downloaded Alice 2.4 on Ubuntu, it didn't have a .exe, so it was instructing me to make a binary and I had NO CLUE how to do that.

If you have Wine Windows Program Loader, download Alice for Windows, then run it with Wine.
