[Fixed] Cube Portable dl-link error ?

howdee,

ok - it has been many-years since ive used/made a PA-usb-key...

yesterday i downloaded the default installer and started to select a couple of apps to try... however, before i tried anything - i decided to rt-click and select-all portable-apps (assuming itd be 9gb or so, which i think it was)...

anyways - during the ensuing many-hours of download/install/click-ok waiting, i noticed only ONE quickie-error... upon further research, i rediscovered the error, and would like to ask if theres some way to fix it ?

the error is that the games/cube server+program download-link was wrong...

CORRECT: https://downloads.sourceforge.net/portableapps/CubePortable_2005.08.29_R...

ERROR: https://downloads.sourceforge.net/portableapps/CubePortable_2005.08.29_E...

i tried (in vain, hence this post) to figure out where/how this particular mistake occurred... afaict, cube is totally set with defaults in its installer-stuff... in my research, i noticed that the game was originally written in french - but im not sure if that is just a red-herring i noticed...

when i go to the homepage of the game here at PA (https://portableapps.com/apps/games/cube_portable) and download-it-manually... it seems to use the correct link, so maybe it is some issue to do with the installer/launcher/? - idk...

in case it helps: here're the other threads which mention it specifically - https://portableapps.com/news/2014-04-04--cube-portable-2005.08.29-rev-2... and https://portableapps.com/node/10271 ...

truthfully, i prolly would not have even noticed it (this game) since i was rather hoping to just download the single utility-category somehow... and if it matters, im using an old win-vista (32) machine (core-2-duo, 2g ram, 150g hdd, brand-new 32g fat32 usb-key) atm... also, i have not rebooted/logged-out/removed-key/anything-unusual since my initial process of dl/install of everything... i have tried a few of the other programs (specifically the PA-launcher, NSIS, and a couple others) to see if i could understand the source/template/launcher-or-whatnot to make a better-detailed report... and i COULD exit-PA/remove-key/etc. if theres any further debugging yalld like me to try...

anyways - long babble to ask: is there anything (besides this report) that i can do to just have the Cube game update correctly from the key ? currently, when i try to add-an-app (by category) the ONLY one missing is Cube...

tia, h. Smile

btw - since i havent-yet-played-it, i cannot tell if the program-itself qualifies to be an 'outdated' one, tho i sorta doubt it... also, i have not yet tried the prolly-working cube-2 in my fiddling...

Fixed

It was indeed an error in the app database. Thanks for the heads up. It's been fixed now. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

WOW - tyvm !!!

simple app->add-new, select-missing-cube and everything is working... Smile

i havent played doom/fps-games like that since the 90s !!! what a trip...

again, tyvm - i guess all i can add is that so far everything-i-have-tried with the key/PA-system has been flawless... wow...
