@ Whovian9369 , no problem with downloading those 2 dats.

these errors usually appear when you want to download a datfile DURING an edit to the database. If you don't download every time the LOG shows some activity and retry after some time, you will get the updated datfile.

I suggest to datters to LOCK datfile downloads until they complete their edits, to avoid hammering by bots and anxious users XD

Hey, I just keep getting unlucky with the downloads I guess. Tried to download the DSi DLC DAT that was updated DAYS ago and I got an error. So I keep getting hit with those issues and such. Curses for being anxious :P

The slightly annoying thing for me each time though, was that ~2s after I posted the messages, the DATs were fixed. Which made my message moot in the first place. So uh, that's fun!

adding a dump means that a datter uses a couple of submission forms before the data is coherent, linked and working. any download done in the meanwhile won't work. locking out people during edits may prevent these "problems".

I did not check the timing of your report with the timing of edits. If it's has been fixed after DAYS of errors, I suggest to the datter who fixed to write "fixed" in shoutbox :D

Yeah, I think I just got QUITE unlucky whenever I hit download, and the second that I clicked "Download" was the moment that one of the AMAZING Datters happened to enter the first part of a submission. So just me being unlucky, really. I will admit to seeing on the NEWS page that the Rayman SNES dump that I've heard about was added, so I kinda jumped on that fast. ;P

Thanks for all your help though, Xuom2!
