Starting the game bug?

Postby vsaet » May 14th, 2018, 9:03 pm

I was playing 10 min ago I stopped to fo something else and now every time I want to start the game I have the new game installation screen but with the difference that it said 11.80 mb and when download those mb it restart and so on .
I have all the time a backup of the entire game every time we have a new parch. I restored but nothing to do. With an internet speed of 4Mbits how many time my dears devs I have to spend reinstalling the game? A century maybe? :(
I wont continue because I will be unfair!!!! :evil:

i have the same problem, opened up the hunter today and it patched, but only the it does not stop patching, it installs and patches continually.
I cant play the game at all and i just renewed my membership 2 days ago or so.


Any Ideas would be great!!

Since I doubt they released an update in the middle of the night in Sweden, it's probably a server error that is causing the game to think there is an update when there isn't really one.

I'm having the same issue. Have uninstalled and am currently reinstalling-via Steam. I'll be choked if there was a simple server issue and I didn't need to go through this. :x :? Peace.

It appears to me that whatever error has occurred results in the game folder being all messed up (no "theHunter.exe" and the "/archives" folder is missing), so a full install (or copy from Steam) will probably be needed once they fix the problem.

John I tried installing a new launcher and paste in game file from Steam. As soon as launcher started, it trashed game file and sent it back to version (0)

Yeah, that makes sense and reinforces the theory that there is a server problem that is fooling to launcher into thinking there is an update for the web install, even though there is not. Playing though Steam is probably the only option for tonight.
