Post by Rose983 on Mon 05 Nov 2012, 21:34

Hello,

What happens if you try again?

Are you using the manual patch or trying to patch it with the launcher?

If you are trying to update the game through the launcher then you really need to use the manual update, which we always recommend by the way Wink . You can find it HERE .

As for the Error 16, that sometimes happens. Usually you can select Save again and it will work, but if it doesn't you can use Save As and save it under a different name. I usually append a number after the default name to tell me that its a Save As file instead of the original (i.e. Mortok Saga becomes Mortok Saga 2)

Hello,

Do you get an error or something, when trying to run via the launcher?

Hello,

Yes, that's caused by an out-dated crack.
Glad to hear you got it working now!

Anything else we can currently help you with?(!)
