If I understand correctly you

If I understand correctly you can't download the installer? Can you see the download page (google drive) after you click the download link?

yeah we can see it but we

yeah we can see it but we need to use a app on the microsoft store to unpack it and thats where its fucking us up in the app it says theres 254464 (im guessing kb) but when we look at it on the desktop it says theres only 1 kb on the installer and we cant unpack it on the desktop because microsoft took thaqt away in win 8.

thnks for getting back to us.

The installer is packed into

The installer is packed into a .7z file, you will need a program like 7zip (which is free) to unpack it.

The size seems the correct one (for the Tale Of Two Wastelands Installer.exe). Try to extract it to a different location (for example C:/TTW) and try to use the extractor software As Administrator too.

Here is a hint from Luthien

Here is a hint from Luthien (a team member):

luthien wrote:

In your TTW Install folder, you will find two .FOMOD files: TaleOfTwoWastelands_Main.fomod and TaleOfTwoWastelands_Options.fomod.

 

Open the "Main" .FOMOD (~5GB in size) in WinRAR or 7zip or whatever archive program you use and delete every .BSA file from the archive. (FOMODs are just ZIP or RAR files with the extension changed.)

There should be 17 BSA archives to delete, and it may take a few minutes to recompress the archive.

 

In the same folder as the two FOMODs is a folder named "Main Files." Copy the 17 BSA archives from that folder to your New Vegas \Data folder.

 

You can now add the size-reduced (~1.7GB) "main" FOMOD to FOMM and install it from there.

 

If that is too complicated then you should try a manual installation. If by any chance the files that were extracted are corrupted, then you have to extract with a different software (since .7z is the format of 7zip I advise using that one like I said before) or you have to download the file again and extract it (with 7zip) because maybe the download got corrupted.
