The last two times this happened to me, I used launcher files shared by fellow forum members to correct the problem. The first time it worked instantly. The second time I tried 4 different launcher files before it finally worked. The one that was just shared here worked for me this time on the first shot.
I don't know what's up but it's incredibly obnoxious.
Thanks for sharing!
[Edit] I wasn't paying attention when I downloaded it but once I took a second look I was pleasantly surprised to see that Cryptic was actually sharing the file. I would have killed for that kind of support the last time when it took several days and help from others to get back up and running.
nope. I downloaded the file. But I still get the message "trying to update the launcher - please be patient" followed by the error window after some time : "The patchclient got a message while it was in a state with mo response function"...
and that is it.
Must I say how frustrating it is?
And downloading the whole game does not sound like a great idea to me cause ot takes over 15h hours for me.
