Can not download new patches through Origin.

Post by CourtneyOlivia on Sat 24 Nov 2012, 02:48

Hello. I'm hoping you guys can help me with this.
For the past 5 months I have not been able to update my game through origin to the latest patch. I currently have patch number: 12.0.273.017001
I couldn't find the serial code numbers to a couple games but was able to find some on youtube that worked. Ever since I downloaded Showtime... where I actually had the correct serial number from the box, it's been unable to connect.
I was planning to get Seasons but I was wondering if installing that would fix the problem.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled origin 5 times now so I know that's not working.
Do I need to have all the serial numbers from the orignal boxes to get it to work?
It's really frustrating because I can't update. D:
Thanks.

//EDIT

Forgot to mention that I really don't want to go through the manual patching.
It takes too long and I've seen it have so many problems... plus it just looks difficult.

//EDIT

Oh.
I'm also using an Asus G55V laptop computer with the newest i7 core processor. It has 750 GB memory.
It's basically a gaming laptop built for this stuff.
It's Windows 7 as well.

Please use the "Edit" button if you haven't gotten replies yet, thank you.

Hello,

The manual patch really is the easiest way to patch the game and it usually doesn't cause problems, unless you're doing it wrong. It does take a while to download yes. Updating through Origin is buggy, which is why EA offers this manual patch as well. It's not user-created, in case you're worried about that.

In this case, downloading and installing Seasons will help, since Seasons will patch your game to 1.42. But that's only a temporary solution, I expect a new patch soon (since there are so many bugs involved with Seasons) and you'll probably have to go through patching a number of times before we see the end of it, but don't worry, using the manual patch really isn't as complicated as it may look. And if you run into problems, we're always happy to help.

Hmm. I guess I can give it a go. I'm just worried it's going to screw up my game. My games work perfectly... it's just the updates I'm worried about.

Is there a page that explains the process of downloading the manual fix?

Hello,

It's really simple actually, the link to the patch can be found here, and (just the) crack from the fix is copied when the patch finishes installing.
Try not to interrupt the download because that can mess up the patch making it useless. When it's finished, simply (double)click the patch and the patch setup will start.
