It would be nice if you created a .bat script which checks if the MD5 checksum of the downloaded files matches the original. Or alternatively you can post the MD5 of all the files in a README.txt file.

already did it for some users....usually do it on request only...as there are not many reports about downloads errors . what game .sfv do you need?

Anyway this is a good suggestion and would be another step towards "semi-pro" repacks lol ! (Still, I think this is a good idea my dear! )...I will try to make efforts and create MD5 checksum soon ! (.sfv + quicksfv.exe)

Yep, I agree with that. Some user's have unstable internet and a lack of checksum can make interrupted download's integrity suspicious. A checksum could save a lot of trouble down the line, especially for user's who aren't familiar with reading error messages or diagnosing "program has stopped working" error source.
