interesting... not sure why you client is having issues getting downloads.

My suggestion would be trying to give the client the data directly and just skip downloads. There are a number of ways of doing this. But the easiest would be to git clone the data from here: http://gitorious.org/tmwdata/ Then use the -d option to point the client to the data, and the -u option to skip updates.

Something kinda like this:

Code: Select all

cd
git clone git://gitorious.org/tmwdata/mainline.git tmwdata
tmw -d ~/tmwdata -u
Once you get the data you can just run the last line when you want to start the client. Once in awhile you need to do this:

Code: Select all

cd ~/tmwdata
git pull
This will ensure your client data is up to date.
