    E000000AA means problems connecting to the update server - your session has timed out.

  • strange, that sounds almost like you provider or country is blocking certain IP ranges

  • More reports are coming with with this issue.

    All I can tell is that we did not do any changes to the update server in months and that most people still can connect to it. I don't know how it can be that it is blocked... especially since you are still able to write here on the forum. The update server uses the same connection.

  • Just got the same error myself tonight :(

    Seems to only affect the launcher, I am having no issues connecting to the portal here.

    Just looking at the above posts and a ticket that was made it seems our issues might relate to distance from server, as the further we are the more crap the data has to pass through to get to us.

    I had an issue like this with another game and it turned out that my provider had blocked that game and all related sites to it. After a few messages and a few complaints from others threatening to leave them and find another provider the game suddenly worked again.

    BTW my provider is Vodafone here in NZ.

  • but it is fetching the data from the same connection the portal uses

    I also see no tech issues accessing the files.

  • thanks op it comes to mind in your mention of no work on the server. i did remember that normally it downloads for me 72 files each time. but maybe in my case maybe other too. it downloaded 79. again as normal, i put it down too work being added. if thats not the case as you indicated op. then the mystery is what was the extra 6 files. and who added it too the server update. i have been under the impression only op or the team can. ???? :salutes

  • Ill check the files again this evening. Im not 100% sure about the numbers.


    Also worth to know is if there have been any updates lately to windows, antivir, firewall on the clients.

  • the config file for the updater looks perfectly fine 73 files if you keep updating on the same mode

    if you switch between SP and MP that number could be different
