Corrupted Files

  • Forum Veteran
I'm still having problems with my files being corrupted.
I've deleted and re-downloaded at least 6 times.
When i run anything (start, patcher, launcher) It says the same 'corrupted', so i've verified it countless times and still the same result: It will say the update was successful, i'll run it and many problems will occur. nothing stopping me from playing, just all the icons are mis-matched, the map is cut up, the guild icons are also mismatched other things i can't think of.

I put up with it for a week after trying so much but now i need to change my fashion and it's too hard with all the different icons. I have to read them like 5 times to get them right. :'(

Any help would be great. ♥

Delete all files
possibly check registry, get a program that checks for remainders..
And reinstall?
That's the only thing I could say :<


On another hand, my  version works, if you want I could upload it (if I'm allowed)?
IDK, since it worked fine for me.

Laptop's video card? IDK.

Are you using Windows 8? Try to running the patcher in Windows XP compatibility mode (should be available under right click -> solve compatibility issues or under properties)

i'm using windows 7, my computer often has problems so i know it's not the game, i already run it in windows compatibility mode windowsxp(service pack 3) otherwise it won't run at all.

exception created on antivirus ?

also when you extract the game to the folder, never use a folder with the name of a previous attempt, windows tends to associate those names, always create a new one.

also what dod u use to download? cuz chrome isnt really the ebst choice, ever tried torrent? im seeding with agatio all the time.

Just start the game directly from elementclient (located in EPW/element) and use patcher only from time to time when new patch is released

I'll try everything you suggested, and nope I downloaded with Firefox.

Yeah, since I've had to run the game in compatibility mode windows xp I can't run directly from element client sadly, it just closes it within seconds because it isn't compatible.

Yeah same, I still play, it's just harder since all the icons are different. I have the plume shot icon for natures vengeance. xD

Norton, sadly. I'll try turning it off when I'm downloading the torrent tomorrow and I'll save the file as something different. Hopefully that will work. c:

hm norton is not exactly my choice lol but i think it might be it deleting files. i think it works as avg does, scanning while download and every unknown problem it will erase the file. what yo can do it add the exception for the www.epicpw.com website and the link of the direct download. i think he wont scan it that way  :-\

I open the game launcher, and it says that my file are corrupted. I click the verify button, and it verifies. once it is complete I can play the game. I don't notice anything wrong either. But I have to do the verify bottum, every single time I open the launcher on my computer. I was having the same problem on my laptop, but it went away.

Any suggestions???

I run Norton and I downloaded epic with no problems, and I didn't have to add a exception to my files either.
