2nd Printing PDF download problem

Post by Black Dougal » Sun Aug 19, 2012 8:47 pm

I received an email tonight stating that the DCCRPG PDF has been updated on RPGNow.com. I just finished downloading it only to find out that it is 100 pages long. Something tells me that it wasn't actually supposed to be a truncated version of the rulebook. Just wanted to let you know. Thanks.

Same here, including the two emails.

Thought something was weird when the download page said 120 mb and the file ended up 34 mb, especially since the first printing PDF was something like 50 mb.

Looks like it is better now. Just downloaded and it appears to be the full book with index :)

It's some sort of glitch in the RPG Now upload process, as far as I can tell. After a third time uploading the same file, it appears to have finally worked.

Will it get updated at Paizo's site too for those of us that purchased it there?

Yes, although their system for publisher updates is not automated like RPGnow so I am not sure of the timeline.

As of 11:20 tonight, it is still not updated on Paizo. I sent them an email yesterday asking when they thought they'd update it, but did not get a response yet.

Anyone know when the alternate cover version is coming out? It looks pretty cool.

Yeah - Paizo is a bit slow with approvals. I know when Purple Duck Games released Bone Hoard I was waiting and waiting to grab it from Paizo and eventually just bought it off RPG Now's site. Their approval process seems quite slow, likely even slower if it involved humans being right after Gen Con.

The pdf from DTRPG is downloading garbled and with a bunch of blank pages at the start for me. Anyone else having the same problem?

At least you guys are getting e-mails saying that you can upload the new version. I haven't even gotten one of those. :P

I'm surprised by the issues I'm reading about on this thread. All of the PDF sources listed so far (Paizo, DTRPG, RPGNow) are usually extremely reliable.

I'm in the same boat as Fin, I have not received any emails notifying me of an update to the PDF. :(

For the folks that got it at Paizo, you should be able to check your My Downloads and see if the 'Date Download Last Updated' column shows something recent (mine says Thursday). Even if you didn't get the email, I think your download will still have been updated.
