I'm bothered by the file structure in my GameTap folders.

In the 140000150 folder, I'm seeing all of the stuff that used to live at the top-level game folder, i.e. the avi, dat, extras, sfx and uninstall folders as well as the executables.
Then, in addition there is a folder named Data, and under it, the whole structure is duplicated again. It looks like I have two copies of the game installed here.
What's worse, most of the files in the Data folder were updated yesterday, when I did a full download from GameTap, and the ones in the 140000150 were updated this morning when I logged in.

Can someone help clarify this mess?

Walt

GameTap\volumes\games\140000150\data is the correct folder.

Under my gametap folder I don't see any volumes folder

Am I suppose to be looking under the gametap folder in program files?

Sorry, it's a little unclear. the latest version of gametap switched things around a bit. It's now GameTap\games\140000150\data

There should not be the entire structure except in the data folder.

Hmmm.....
I found the entire structure in 104000150 and again in 104000150\data. I moved all but the data folder to a temp location and ran GameTap. It started to download the whole game again. I put the files back and all was OK. Looking at the folders now, I see 3 files that were modified today:
cache
precache.bin.part
precache.bin.parturl

Tomorrow I'll try moving all but those three files and see what happens.

I suppose the "Right" way would be to delete everything and let GamrTap download a fresh copy, but it took me over eight hours of connect time to get this far so I don't think I will do that. (I blame GameTap's servers for timing out and being unable to resume an interrupted download. My Internet connections are both very good, and 1.5 or 4.5 MB speed.)

I'll keep you posted.

Walt
