# 1 Launcher Maintainence
12-11-2012, 07:54 PM
So I come home from work, try to log into the game, and I get a message saying there is Maintainence being performed on the launcher, players should not be affected, re-load if you experience issues.

I have been doing this for the past 4 hours, cannot get into the game, so I can't do anything and by the time I get a reply to any email I send, the game will be back on, well frankly because it will be at least 4 days before I get a reply, IF I get one.

so I would like thank PWE for screwing me out of gameplay for an evening, doing maintainence during a peak time, 6-10 PM thats smart, whoevers bright mind thought this was a good idea deserves a swift kick in the head, as I am now screwed on all my time sensitive projects.

So again I say, TYVM PWE, for screwing me, and more than likely several thousand other players.

Why are you thanking them for screwing you? Was it really that good?

Did you try launching the .exe file directly, bypassing the launcher?

Can you please let me know what error is occurring so I can pass it along? We have been seeing players logging in just fine since we started maintenance, so you should not be affected.

Cheers,

I am not getting an error msg I try logging in, and the engage button just says cancel and nothing happens, it doesn't log me in.

Upon logging in an "Error 4 invalid view attempt" is received and a the launcher behaves as normal as possible after a 10 second count. After hitting Engage the Cryptic splash screen appears where the game immediately crashes.

I'm having the exact same thing happen to me as well. 10:41 PM EST. Repeatedly either gives me the Error 4 message, or it crashes as soon as 'Engage" is pressed. Was able to bypass by launching the .exe directly from the game folder.

Edit: Game now just sits at "Connecting to the account server" after using the .exe file to bypass the launcher.

I'm getting this too.

I tried just using the gameclient.exe directly, which crashed like 4 times, then it finally worked. But now that I got it running, I just get 'Connection to the account server timed out.' when I attempt to login.

I cannot play.

Please help?

This is also what happens when I bypass the launcher.
