PAR2 received incorrect options, check your Config->Switches settings

Post by costanza1008 »

HI there - I'm getting tonnes of these errors. I'm running latest nzb but 95 % + of my downloads fail with this error.... What should the settings be set to in switches screen?
Mine are set to
Download all par2 files = selected
external process priority = normal
Etra PAR2 Paramaters = -N <- could this be the problem????
Enable SFV-based checks = selected
Post-Process only Verified Jobs = selected
Enable recursive unpacking = selected
Ignore any folders inside archives = Not Selected
Post-processing script can flag job as failed = not selected
On failure, try alternative NZB = not selected
Ignore Samples = not selected
Deobfuscate final filenames = not selected
Use tags from indexer = selected

any help seriously appreciated as I'm wasting so much of my block account on failed downloads!!!

Yes, that's the problem. It's exactly what the error messages say.. Probably you are using the wrong setting for the platform you are on (windows/Linux).
What are you trying to do with this N? By default its empty.
