There's no font by that name on this site, sogdt. You should probably be posting on the forum for the site where you got it. Google has no results for SSF4 Akubet.

SSF4 = Super Street Fighter 4 ?
are you trying to leave us a special message ?

I have trie it and I don't have problem to unzip and install this font.
Did you have trie to download it a second time ? Perhaps this is simply a problem that occure in your first download...

If you are using an older unzipping tool, try upgrading to a newer version.

It's clearly a problem of download (software, link, etc.).
The size of the ZIP file is 489 kb (501 562 b). If you don't have exactely this size, the zip file will be impossible to uncompress.

I get this same problem with several fonts. I have tried loads of different times to download them and get the same message each time. Some other fonts are OK. I have Windows Vista. Sorry Menhir don't understand about the file size - not very technical - which seemed to have solved sogdt's problem.

Can you, or someone help please cos getting really frustrated. Oh yes, only have dial-up but as I said other fonts have been OK.

It is a connection problem. With dial-up the doewnload time for fonts with a size of close to half a megabyte - and those are common in these times of 'let's make fonts look as destructed as possible' - download can take up to 15 minutes easily. There only needs to be one slight interruption in the line/connection and the download stops, giving you a unusable (partial) zip file.
Try again and again and again is your solution, or don't try to download oversized font files (mosttimes rubbish (imho) anyway, or find a friend with a broadband connection, or get a broadband connection yourselves. Although the latter seems to be a bit overdone for just downloading a font ...

Try to use download manager, in case you lose connection, you will be able to resume partially downloaded files

Thanks Koeiekat. Wish I could get a broadband connection! In a 'white zone' broadband NOT available - yes, they do STILL exist, unbelievable isn't it. It's strange because the download seems to take literally seconds. Is it a case that it appears where you have saved it before the file has actually finished downloading?

Thanks Sashix

And, Fleurie, if I may ask, where would that white spot be?


Jul 05, 2011 at 18:42

there still are a lot of "zones blanches" in France in 2011, even 8km away from Paris...


Jul 05, 2011 at 19:04

Spookie daaams, how do you know I'm in France?


Jul 05, 2011 at 19:11
