My system is fairly decent: windows 7, 965 AMD cpu, 16GB ram and the HIS HD 5870 Turbo graphics card. Nothing is overclocked and the computer has run the game since launch with no problems though admittedly I haven't logged in the last couple months, but still...


I have begun experiencing the same problem. Fatal error decompressing data. I cannot go to Qo'nos, which is quite a pain for someone whose main character is from that faction.

Deleting one file in the folder has not changed anything.

My memory is already running at the correct voltage.

Any other ideas?

I'm having the same problem. both my characters are stuck by Deferi.
I keep re-installing and trying the newest launcher, even formatted my hd yesterday. But I keep getting the fatal error about the piggs files.
Also was getting spiratic reboots and chkdsk keeps finding orphaned files. Been thinking I have bad sectors but surface scan found no new ones.
I'll have to try this remedy.

That's exactly what mine is doing. Games client stays in memory around 400MB and says "patching" but is doing nothing but looking STUPID (game).

I have come across this issue multiple times myself and the one thing that has worked (at least temporarily) is to delete ALL the testure.hogg files located inside the pigg folder. You will have to re-download about 6GB of game but this has always worked for me until they come along with a major new patch.

I can not delete any files in the piggs folder, it says all the files are in use in the gameclient.exe folder, but it will not let me open it so i can close it.

pls help

Ive had this happen, and the funny thing is form the game server.

Force verfing the files, normally fix this inless youre messing with the test server.

Just let it verfy the files, and you sould be done. No reall need to redownload everything.

Hi all,

I am having similar trouble, I have not even been able to play the game at all yet.

Tried 'force verify' but had the same problem, I would rather not delete and re download the texture.piggs if there is another way, if not... it will have to be done.

I have just downloaded and patched the game and then when I hit engage and loading screen comes up I get about three quaters of the through and then get this fatal error message: Fatal Error: error decompressing data. Verifying files in the launcher may fix this issue: Texture_Library/System/Engine/Black.Wtek

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I've re-verified, I've re-patched, I've even re-installed and did the whole dance again. I cannot get past my character select, the game continues to crash in the loading screen for my character. I have no idea what to do to fix it, but thankfully I haven't given any money to them, so I wont be out too much other than some stress, time, and a headache, if I give up on this game if the issue doesn't get resolved soon.
