okay, I downloaded EPW and for some reason I didn't have to extract the file or anything it just came unpacked already idk if its because im on a windows 8 computer or something but I tried to open the launcher and it will pop up the little box that says "connecting to server" but after about 20-30 seconds it says "server time out" I don't know what im doing wrong if someone could help me I would really appreciate it. and I have tried every method on the forums that people have told me none of them work at all :l

It should work on a Windows 8 PC. First of all, make sure it's in your firewall exceptions. Also, try running the patcher.exe as an administrator. Once you patch it to the latest version (v87), you can start through the patcher, elementclient.exe or

So after New Horizons patch, game forces you to open patcher every time you want to start it from elementclient.exe.
You can bypass it, so it will start directly. To do this:

1. Right click on elementclient.exe in EPW/element/ directory and create a shortcut of that file.
2. Right click on elementclient shortcut and choose Properties (last option on the bottom).
3. In the target field add at the end: startbypatcher. Just like that:




That's it. From now just run elementclient shortcut so it will skip the patcher window.



I added this as a batch file to attachment as well. It has to be started from the EPW/element/ directory though.

Just google how "adding exceptions on Norton" or something like that. My internet is laggy atm so I can't find you a link. But, you should be able to find it pretty easily.
