Hi there.  I downloaded the WoG installer and when I try to run it, I get an error message saying:

"Installer Integrity Check has failed.  Common causes include incomplete download and damaged media.  Contact the installer's author to obtain a new copy."

I've tried re-downloading the executable 3 times and keep getting the same message.  Any ideas on what to do to fix it?

I downloaded the game today and I have the same problem!

Same here.
Vista 64 machine, getting the NSIS error stating the download may be corrupted.

Any help from support yet?

The error states that the file could be either incomplete or corrupted. Well, the file size of the finished file is (according to firefox) 64.1megs, while the 3 attemps I have attempted to download have a different size, all lower (29 megs, 57 megs, 39 megs).

Could it be that their server is swamped because of reddit`s link to this event and the connection cant be held because of that?

Anyone want to share their thoughts?

Hello again,

The problem resolved itself. Tried downloading for a 4th time and this time it went through correctly.

This game rocks, going to install my PC on my 42" to play this..

Have a good time and good luck!

Firefox (especially old versions) tends to have this sort of problem with partial downloads saved as a complete download. Your best bet is to use a download manager (such as FlashGet, which I like) to avoid the problem.
(Or Internet Explore, unthinkable!)
