Right,

I am less than pleased at the moment for several reasons. Firstly I was part of the alpha/beta program for this game a year or so back and really enjoyed it. So finally I decided I would buy it.

I bought the game for $25 or whatever it is on this website only to find out that its being sold for as low as £3 on other websites.

I thought 'oh well' my own fault for not looking around. Still its a good game so worth paying for.

I loaded it up, installed all the updates and then when I try to log in I get 'connection timed out' over and over again. Finally it crashes my computer and when I restart the comp it nows says 'FAIL' whenever I try to load the game. Followed by a message that says 'The type initializer for 'DOFUpdater.Properties.Settings' threw and exception'.

I have restarted the computer again, deleted the game and tried to re install. Whenever it gets to the patcher now it just says fail and shuts down. Anyone know a fix please?

I have the same problem, but with the 25$ version you get different items than if you you were to buy the 2£ version from example game.co.uk, the game's servers have been down now for over 14 hours I believe, take a look at some of my other posts and other people have "connection timed out!" message on one of the posts I have even uploaded a pic, its just stupid that they haven't resolved it...

EDIT: You can play single player, its just the online is not working....

The main problem is the new 'FAIL' one. It means I can not even load up the patcher. Any ideas?

Which of course stops me even playing single player.

It started happening when my computer crashed while I had the game loaded up.

Welcome to DoF Kutai - and sorry to hear it`s off to such a crappy start. Here are some steps that have been posted before that might help you. Try running the updater after each step.

Hello,

Some things you can try.

1) make sure you restart the computer - if you haven`t this could cause that.

2) Disable Anti Virus and Firewall - and if that works set DofUpdater.exe as exception

3) When you start the updater, try to right click - and Start as Administrator (or Run as Administrator)

4) Try installing C runtime libraries. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555

5) Try getting the latest .Net Framework (free download, just google it)

6) To confirm you already tried using the latest client located here? http://dofgame.com/download/DoFInstaller.exe

7) Lets try uninstall one more time, but this time also removing temp updater files:

a.) Go to your user directory (C:\Users\Your User Name Here) with 'Show Hidden Files and Folders' enabled (see here (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-see-hidden-files-in-windows/) for details), the folder AppData should appear.
b.) Navigate from your user directory to AppData, and then to Local. For more instruction, see:

Windows 7: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UTCXZdOf06Y
Windows XP: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Application_data_folder_in_windows_xp
Windows Vista: http://techqa.wordpress.com/2008/08/24/appdata-folder-in-windows-vista/

c.) There should be a folder named DoFUpdater there, delete it.

And about that - the £3 is a limited time thing only, besides our store includes 20$ of bonus content with the purchase...now we just need to make sure you can start the game:)
Also as an Indie developer we really appreciate your purchase!
