1st Ed download issues

So I received the download link, two of them actually, in an e-mail today and evidently you only get one try each.  After that, Drive Thru RPG says they are invalid links and you have used them the maximum number of times.  Sorry that the download timed out but that is your problem.

WTF?

Good heads up. Means I will be loading to the PC instead of the tablet for a good copy.

If you get the links via Email, then a second email actually confirms the link is forever linked to your account.

The confirmation email is like the one below. This means the products remain available for download at a later date in your DriveThruRPG account. 

The sheer volume of fans hitting DriveThruRPG have almost crippled the DriveThruRPG Servers. I had to download mine one-by-one. angry

The problem I had was that as it compressed the files and what not before the save link appeared, it would time out.  When I tried again I would be told that hte link is no longer valid.  On the last try I was told that Drive Thru RPG was experiencing a high traffic and try again later.

May have to do the one at a time route.

I haven't gotten the links yet.  I hope I'm not the only one still waiting. :)

Well, True Iskander, most of us are not able to get all the PDFs downloaded.

I only got the core book of the 1st edition. Now this message is greeting me. crying

I expect it's just due to everyone trying all at once. A server can only take so much punishment before it gives up. =) I think I shall wait a day or two and try again to get mine, since once you go through checkout and get them in your library they should be available for download forever (for a definition of forever that implies the life of the drivethrurpg site).

Did you folks get an email saying they were available? Or did you log into DTRPG and they were just there and ready?

I got an email with a link to DriveThruRPG. The link is important because it carries the unique code tailored to each email that gets you the discount. Many folks have not yet received the email yet. I am suspecting some manual input by John Wick's staff or maybe their software just cannot handle 11,843 simultaneous discount emails. :-(

Good to hear.  I still haven't gotten mine, and I think I (and probably others) are worried it's something we did wrong on our end.

I literally had to download them one at a time. If you try to download more than that, DTRPG just crashes. I did end up getting them all though.

Plus you cannot read them all at the same time. So grab one or two and dig in. Then grab a few more as stuff smooths out. I'm ignoring it for a few days since it's not a pressing matter for me to have digital access.

I noticed when getting mine... that I only got 30 books.  All the Swashbuckling adventures books didn't seem to be in the link...

That's the same for everyone. Sounds like they're coming a bit later.

Ah, ok.  Wasn't sure if I missed something or not.  Glad to know it is just the way things are :)

From the email with the download link: "This first bundle of 7th Sea: 1st Edition PDFs contains the original run of 7th Sea products from AEG. DTRPG is in the middle of transferring the Swashbuckling Adventures PDFs to us (eta: next week), but we didn't want you to have to wait any longer! Enjoy!"

Not an issue exactly, but I noticed there's a non-d20 book called The Montaigne Revolution that wasn't included in the package.  Does anyone know why, and if there are any others that haven't been made available yet?  I'm just curious if there's a reason for it.

Actually, I have no idea. It may have had dual stats, I don't recall exactly. (And i am no place near my copy to check.) It's a good read for plot advancement of various story arcs.

I have Montaigne Revolution in my account. I also know for sure that it wasn't one of the ones I had in pdf form from DriveThru before the bundle, because I had made a scan of my old physical copy when it fell apart and was using that when I needed to reference something. (It was also pre-SBA so, it's just R&K rules.)

Okay, I'll check again. Thanks for that.

Just an oversight on my part. All PDFs accounted for. :)
