Every time I start loading the game, i receive a fatal error message after login.

Fatal Error
Fatal Error: Unable to initialize on-demand patching and connect to Patch Server: The connection was idle for too long

This happens after the game begins to load and after 1 minute I receive the above error.

I know someone was having this issue in January, but they never said if they fixed it. Any thoughts?

I'm getting the same issue. The normal login launcher process wont even get past the trying to update the launcher and when I go in to the game files and load the game manually it gives me that error.

I've tried disabling my firewall completely but still nothing.

All I want to do is waste some time playing a game lol

Hey, if anyone else has this issue. My buddy suggested I go to 'options' on the log in screen and check 'fast start' and I haven't had any issues since then.

I fixed this problem by simply removing McAffee software from my laptop. Been meaning to do that since McAffee and Norton both truly suck and don't do nearly as good as a job as they claim. Never have never will. Removing it and restarting laptop fixed the initial issue, then when i started game and the cryptic loading screen came up it actually had the loading bar again finally. But then got a DX error so installing that again. Fixing to try the game again, will let you know in a min.

Ok, all is working fine now. Basically what i did to fix this was:
1. Removed McAffee software
2. Reinstalled DirectX as that was the next error that came up
3. Game runs fine now.
