    Just called them and the first thing the guys said when I explained the situation was "ahhhh...the infamous Nine Inch Nails downloads..."

    He sent my info to tech to get it resolved. Still no links yet.

    This is after two unanswered emails and two tweets...

    Here is their contact number: http://www.firebrandlive.com/contact/

    So far I've

    1. Opened a ticket with them.
    2. Tweeted them.
    3. Physically called them.
    4. Emailed them.
    5. Posted on their Facebook page.
    6. Commented on their instagram.

    currently looking to see if they have a fax number. I wish I were kidding.

    Heh, fair enough, and agreed. I think for awhile they were redirecting people to the ticketing system, from Twitter, but they may have stopped doing that.

    I ended up getting a second email from them with another download link for Deviations, apparently on account of me having updated the ticket earlier this morning, so there is still someone plugging away at these. Hope everyone gets sorted!

    Ordered NTAE, Broken, and Deviations in the same order. Only have NTAE downloads. Used the submission form on their site and tweeted, haven't heard anything from either place.

    This is just moderately annoying more than anything since I've been at work all day anyway.

    Called them again. I said "hey have you guys been getting calls about the NIN downloads?" They must have had caller I'd because I swear to god he said "yes, are you by chance the infamous tony parente who has emailed us, tweeted us, opened a ticket, commented on our Facebook and instagram?"

    They said their corporate office is closing in a few hours but they're "working on it".

    Dude was super nice, wished me a merry Christmas.

    Agree, dude at the US phone was nice
    (I was nice too, i hope, and wished him a Merry Christmas )

    Still.
    I guess phoning would help only a little bit, since everything's still going through email-ticketing system.

    So again, Waiting time is here...

    Here's information about the FLAC NTAE downloads from the US store. The filename differs depending on whether you downloaded the "digital+physical" version or the "vinyl" version, but the zipfiles themselves are identical.

    Here's a little block formatted similar to how you'd done yours:
    Code:
    Not The Actual Events FLAC-2017.zip (filename used on the "digital+physical" download link)
    Not The Actual Events FLAC.zip (filename used on the "1xLP/vinyl" download link)
    md5sum: 553c3e51e803ab4b5763e15d76651439
    285,341,133 bytes (273MB)
    (US STORE - FLAC only)

    The guy that answered the US line did say that that is the corporate office and they were doing all of the NIN tech support "off-site".

    I got a reply via email with my missing links but unfortunately I wasn't specific enough and forgot to mention I need both the regular Fragile and Deviations, so I'm waiting on a reply back for Deviations while the others download.

    I'm in the same boat with my DEVIATIONS 1 & THE FRAGILE downloads, but I can forgive that screwup since it's right before the holidays.

    Not having tagged FLACs, lyrics, or the liner notes page included with the NTAE download is beyond annoying.

    *edit*
    They replied to my e-mail with fresh links & I'm currently downloading.

    Trent makes ABC pretty easy. Perhaps the folks at Firebrand need Alec to provide a refresher on ADIA.

    WTF is this?!? Lyrics were embedded in my MP3 show up on the iPhone but liner notes no where to be seen. I purchased both the Vinyl and the DL/Physical component.

    Yep, dude told me almost the same.
    I guess he must be really pissed off telling all the same all day now.

    So, phone calling wouldn't really make it go faster...
    UNLESS WE KNOW THE PHONE of that offsite NIN support, heh

    And here's info for Broken 2017 DE and The Downward Spiral 2017 DE:

    Code:
    Broken (2017 DE).zip
    md5sum: 898f5c801f0dcf40ee4363b6ee7b2309
    1,934,825,906 bytes (1.9GB)
    (US STORE - FLAC/MP3/WAV combo)
    Code:
    The Downward Spiral (2017 DE).zip
    md5sum: 36525bd6afba1780d0c74f880902d9b4
    4,013,145,801 bytes (3.8GB)
    (US STORE - FLAC/MP3/WAV combo)
    That wraps up the zipfiles that I can help with, re: checksums and filesizes.

    Among not getting the Deviations 1 download link, my NTAE mp3 songs are to long. I will quote myself from another thread.

    Branches/Bones 7:18
    Dear World, 9:38
    She's Gone Away 11:31
    The idea of You 8:58
    Burning Bright 11:20

    I can't find the art work and it will not play nice with WMP. Still no sign of Fragile Deviations 1 download for me

    one would think that with streaming services and all around digital media being so popular, this is the one aspect of the release that would have zero problems... like WTF.

    You know, I guess this explains why it took so long to get an answer to an order question.
    With the volume of inquires coming in, it may take us up to 48 hours to respond to a request.

    I've gotten everything I ordered except for Deviations, which is probably my most anticipated of the downloads. No response to my tweet or support ticket yet.

    Thanks to make this topic happening. As I said somewhere else that is not the first time the store is going bad, we (UK store users) had the same problem with Before the flood when we received MP3s instead of 24/48 WAV in the US store. I don't know if it's the store problem that NTAE's Dear World and Burning Bright were upscaled from 44.1kHz. Still waiting for an answer for Deviations (I emailed them). Don't want to download it somewhere else but well...

    This sucks. But at least we got NTAE yesterday, so I'm not totally pissed off, just a little disappointed.

    I'm sure that will come in handy once they bother to respond to the support ticket I opened 30 hours ago.

    It has now been over 4 hours since they've said anything on twitter, hopefully that means they're working their way through support tickets instead.

    I ordered NTAE and Deviations but haven't received Deviations yet. I got a support ticket yesterday afternoon and have received nothing since. I don't have time to listen to it over the next few days anyway so I won't bother digging any deeper until after Boxing Day if I still haven't gotten anything. There's no point trying to bump my ticket up when I won't even listen to the tracks...


    ...the fucking principle of the thing still bothers me though
