Demo Question
I am new to trying this game out, I tried the Demo and I did a few missions then got booted for "maintenance"
Next time I tried to play and for two straight days got "Version Mismatch" error.

My Question is: After you do the rescue mission in space against the Orion raiders do you get pooped out of the game? Am I going to have to have to uninstall then every time or can I just tool around and explore a little? Cause I didn't even get to collect the rewards for that mission I had completed and I have had to uninstall-reinstall so far just to play.

Hoping the real game is not as rude as the demo.

Error, yes. Often? No.

Sorry you're having such a rough wrestle with the demo!

What you're experiencing is definitely some kind of glitch or error. I've never had anything quite like that happen before; it's possible that there was a major update that the demo downloader didn't verify, but I'm not computer savvy enough to speculate on it.

Suffice it to say, I think that it's just the demo, and a random confluence of other factors, that is producing those issues.

(Hopefully someone else who has tried the demo can speak more to this!)

You probably downloaded the demo and got stuck between two patches: Friday mornings, and Saturday morning's fix-it patch. I'd suggest you do a forced verify from the demo launcher. It's under the Options tab at the top of the launcher. Hopefully that'll catch any patch errors for you.
