Title: Wierd Problem with updater
Post by: Sn3ky on April 23, 2013, 05:01:00 pm
Hello. I am new and recently downloaded client of your game. Although the auto updater is being extremely wierd. It has update just about most of the files. Currently I have 2 files left to update. But this is where the wierd part comes in. About halfway through getting ready to finish the update, my datarate goes negative and the progress goes backwards. After a couple of times the update fails.

Currently it is failing to download the xr_tutorial_b1.s2z file.

I am just wondering if its just the updater going wonky, or is my connection really that bad. (im running an equivalent to a 56k modem)

Did you run it the game as admin? (Solves most problems, if you're using Win7/Vista)

When is concerns the autoupdater, this topic will usually help out.

Yes i did run the program as administrator. the problem was still constant.

I can see where to edit the au.cfg file. but My system won't let me save it even though im the administrator.

ny chance you can get a better connection or borrow one just to update. I started savage on a 56K and it was pretty bad  :cry:
