    Default Multipart Files

    Evenin all.

    Just wondering if anyone has ever had this problem before.
    Imagine that there is a game that has been posted but a single segment of a file is missing, causing a CRC error. The same part has been posted but is split into more segments than the original one but that also has a part missing but different.
    Without any par files available, is it possible to somehow merge the 2 together and get one complete part?

    I hope that this is clear enough! :|

    No - Or if so I have never seen it done. Without PAR files - and when I say that I mean the PAR's that are correct for the way the file has been archieved - you simply dont have the information to fix the missing file.

    As you have 2 differently made files the pars from one set wont help with the other and as you dont have either set - your screwed.

    I suspect either start downloading again or get on the IRC or DC++ to find your missing file.

    Cheers

    Cheers mate.
    Thought it was doubtful so P2P'd it as a last resort.
