ETC Website - Hog4 Latest Software Downloads - Issues

dandan Registered User, Hog Beta

Since the Console Software files have been moved to the ETC website, the new software download format isn’t Macintosh friendly. 

Using RoadHog-4 as the jump-off to download latest software.... 

the FPSPKG Console Upgrade has been Zipped, so Macintosh’s can’t extract (using system software) without also unpacking the fpspkg file.... so that’s now a PC only upgrade option....

(we can download the zipped file, without extracting, but when we try to extract, we are unable to not unpack the fpspkg file automatically)

The DP8000 restore zip file is un-extractable on Mac and PC (gives “Please Insert Last Disk of Multi-Volume Set” error on PC) 

The Hog4 Manual download link seems to be a 3.14.0 manual.... not 3.15.0

    Updated: A free Mac app called "the Unarchiver" can unzip the without also extracting the fpspkg contents. The DP8000 restore file zip returns a corrupt message when using "the Unarchiver" to extract.

    DP 8000 restore link from the site should be good now!

    Thanks @maeganw12 !! The DP8000 restore file is now extractable. The manual is now correct. I do think that zipping the FPSPKG file is an un-necessary complication (that never used to exist), and it only saves 0.1Mb so is hardly essential?

    It's required because of the website infrastructure.
