We have a regular play group, and one friend has recently started getting an error if they do not have a map or a newer mod that we are trying to play with. They will attempt to join the game, the FAF Client will download what they are missing, and according to the client.log, it will save the temp file, unzip it... but then they join the lobby and get booted with the error that they do not have the mod.
This also happens with maps, and it will download the map, but then they will receive the error message in the lobby that they do not have the map.
They can try to manually install the mod or map, and they still get told they don't have it.
This friend played with us for a long time with no problems, but this has all started a couple months back. To begin, we would just switch to a map that they already had, but over time they are missing more and more things that the rest of us play with.
Any hints where to check? Is there a setting somewhere to change the mod directory? Client is installed on their E: drive, and their /programdata folder is in the default spot.
FAF client has been reinstalled.
Forged Alliance has been reinstalled
