I am trying to install and mod fallout 3 with vortex.
Each time I select to download a mod from the Nexus page in Vortex one of two things always happens.
The downloads partially to about 20% and then stop and never downloads, or I get a message straight away that it has failed.
When I inspect it the reason is: "message: read ECONNRESET" is this an issue with Vortex or some setting
How to fix this??? please help
Although I cannot offer a solution to your problem, I can provide some information that may help you locate the source of the problem.
As rmm200 has suggested, you may have some sort of network issue. I say that because I myself have no download problems whatever while using Vortex for Fallout 3. As rmm200 also mentioned, a similar network problem has been discussed somewhere in these Vortex forums. I remember reading about it several weeks ago, but I don't remember the solution and where the discussion is located. Perhaps an answer to your question lies in that discussion thread.
As meager as this information is, I do hope it's of some help to you.
