  • Open up your version.ini file in your crossfire folder and paste what it says here since I'm pretty sure it's corrupt.

  • I had this Error for like patch after patch and i found a way that worked for me.
    simple and easy and hope it works for you:
    1.Open Patcher and let it verify the Rez files...
    2.When the Verify finishes it will start downloading.
    3.Notice which file is the one you get error at and then the patcher will close.
    4.Open the Patcher again and let the same process go on and when it comes to the file you get error at Just close the patcher as fast as possible.
    if you get the error pop up before you close the patcher then you will have to open it again and try more faster. :)
    hope this works for you guys,it truly worked for me!
    You can try this one i managed to find a solution hope it works for you. :)

    hey guys mine is doing is telling me "failed to update patch" and I tried some of the methods and it is not working

    Im sorry im probably supper late to post this.. I hope You alrdy solved ur issue however for future reference.. Il just leave this method here.. It works for me 100% of the time when ever I encounter "failed to download patch file"

    ..When ever I get the failed to download the patch file..what I do is..
    Steps:
    1. Go in c.f folder right click on version.ini open properties uncheck "read only" apply..ok. Next
    2. step open version.ini normally then there u'll find 'latest version' and the version number written. rn its 2080 i guess.. Im not sure abt the first 2 digits, anyway the only change u have to do is.. On the last 2 numbers dnt change the first 2 numbers on latest version line. If its '79' make it '80' or if its '80' make it '81' im sorry i forgt wts the current version number and iam away from pc..
    U get that error cuz version number is wrong in ur version.ini file and it wnt update on its own..so this is the manual method.
    3. Anyway after writing the next number on the Place of last two digits close it.. Thn right click on version.ini. and open Properties check on 'read only' box.. Apply and close..double click on patcher and let it download the current patch.
    SIDE NOTE: U can even Skip the last "read only" check box step. It will only roll back the number to its original (i.e the current version number) if u have written the wrong number on latest version . example : latest version :2080 and u made it latest version :2085 " this will roll back to its original version 2080 since version 2085 does not exist. this is only when you dnt check on "read only" after making chnges. However if you do check on "read only" box and wrote a wrong number there it will not roll back to its original number it will give u 'failed to download the patch file" but dw..all u hv to do is follow the steps above and write the current version number and start the patch. The patcher will run if ur latest version is correct and it will download the latest version if it already did not automatically.
    Im soo sorry if this is confusing.. Im not on pc rn u.u so try to understand it ._. G.L

    Hello, Vu here.

    So we're all aware (GMs too) that there's an issue with the patching for now (although not everyone has this issue).

    For now the solutions include :

    -Trying again and again : This has been said to work by a few forumers, not guaranteed.

    -reinstalling : That should do the trick, if not, try the 3rd option

    -Clean reinstall : This is supposed to be a foolproof solution, although it takes time. steps are :
    1) Uninstall the game completely, and delete Z8Games folder from your program files folder
    2) Perform system cleaning (Ex. Using CCleaner)
    3) Disable your Anti-Virus real-time protection
    4) Re-download the newest version of the game http://crossfire.z8games.com/downloadS2.aspx
    5) Install the game
    6) Add CrossFire and CrossFire folder to your Anti-Virus and Firewall exceptions list
    7) Close all programs running in the background
    8) Re-enable your Anti-Virus real-time protection

    -Alternate solution : NickTran1 came up with this, it worked for some people :
    Step 1: Go to CF folder and copy REZ folder to somewhere else, desktop is recommended.
    Step 2: Delete BACKUP, HGWC , LOG , REZ , XTRAP folder.
    Step 3: Run CF, then xtrap will run and say that REZ files have changed.
    Step 4: Paste your old REZ folder into CF folder again, the one that you copied ealier.

    -another "fix" that worked for some players :
    Right click on the CF shortcut on your desktop and click "Open file location"
    That will lead you towards the crossfire folder quicker.
    Then What I did was moved my rez folder and my HGWC and deleted my XTrap folder and delete your Logs also.
    After that try running the game, you will run across the "HGWC problem".
    Bring back the HGWC and your Rez folder and run the game again/ patch. It will download you a new Xtrap and HOPEFULLY like me you get it patched.


    I'll edit this thread as we get more information or a fix. Please don't spam "I have this too, please fix it" or make more of these threads, thanks.

    Also, I'm copying useful posts in here too.

    I have solved it by using vpn canada region.......

    If you get this error, you need to run "patcher_cf.exe" as Admin.
