Patcher doesn't work?

Question

I downloaded KSP 1.0 fairly recently and now the 1.0.1 patch is here and I would really like to download it. I've kinda sorta ran into an issue along the way, I don't exactly know how to rectify this issue but the Patcher highlights 'Unable to authenticate with the server: Received malformed data from the server: File not found.' in red. Any fixes? Thanks in advance.

I don't know a fix for it, but I'm having the same problem. Here's my patcher.log

I have the exact same issue, with the same log. I may have entered my password wrong? It's been a while since I've had to enter it since the patcher usually remembers it

EDIT: It may also be worth mentioning that when I use the launcher, the "Checking for Updates" thing never goes away, like it can't check for an update

My Patcher isn't working either...

Just saying... https://kerbalspaceprogram.com/kspstore/dp/patcher/index.php (the page, the pager is looking for) isn't reachable.

Think there went something wrong with the server migration.

Please forward to the new destination on the webserver.

Here my log:

The hashes are not unsafe to share, though if you want to keep your email private you can certainly redact that from your log.

Does anyone know where this rsync.exe is located? I can't seem to find it anywhere in my KSP folder, and there's definitely no bin folder either.

I'm having the same problem :( I submitted a Problem Report to Squad. Hopefully they will sort it out soon.

It appears that the latest version's patcher download only results in a broken zip file now (before, it downloaded a patcher that gets hung). For anyone having trouble with the patcher and have any KSP Store copy (or possibly GOG copy), download the new version by hand.

I have a feeling it'll be a while before we get a working patcher again.

I suspect you're right, Bandock. My patcher log is showing:

Last BuildID: 830

(Filename: C:/buildslave/unity/build/artifacts/StandalonePlayerGenerated/UnityEngineDebug.cpp Line: 56)

Connecting to patcher updater: 404 Not Found

Then just sits at "Checking for Updates..."

Guess I'll be updating manually for the time being.

I really would advise against sharing hashes. It isn't that hard to open patcher.exe in a debug program, determine the algorithms used in hashing, and then simply brute force what are likely to be simple passwords. http://arstechnica.com/ posts a new article about the matter every couple months.

Eh, it's just a password I use for unimportant things, and if somebody finds out what it is, well then at least they can have a fun time playing Kerbal Space Program.

So, do I need to re-download each time there's a patch? And does this mean I have to start a new game each time?

Yes, and no. Your saves can be transferred over to the new directory and you can continue to play. You will have to update manually though.
