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!

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.
