    Happened to me this morning too. I would click on my Sim to play and it would tell me to get update. Then it would take me back to desktop and nothing happened, go back to the login screen and so forth. Took about 3 trys to get the 12.4 whatever update and then I was able to log in. So keep trying till you actually get the update. [​IMG]

    Same thing here, I got about 200kb worth of updates and it still says there is an update availible, and there is no update!

    FOUND A FIX:

    Load EAL regularly, and when it asks you which server to login (EA-Land-Beta, TSO, or TC3) choose the "options button" sleect for the game to review your installation, it should detect a 100 byte update, that fixed it for me [​IMG]

    Last night (I think it was Lee) said try going to TC3 first then EA Land. It worked for me, but not everyone.
     
  10. I've had this same problem today for the first time. I tried patching to tc3 first, but that didn't help. When i log in and click one of my sims, it says I need an update. But then it brings me to the updater, where it doesn't actually update anything, lol. Keeps doing this loop...

    Any ideas?

    I have the same problem But then it brings me to the updater and the cycle happens about 4 times then then it tells me a game file on your system was not the one expected. This can mean your installation was corrupted, the game was tampered with, or possible the system is infected with a virus. Select the 'Retry' to verify the game install and attempt to fix it. Well I cleaned the computer and no virus. Then I reinstall the same and I get the a 110 byte update is required to continue. But then it happens all over again.

    what is happening

    I'm having exactly the same problem. Seems there is another problem with the updater utility.

    I recieved the 100 byte update without going through options, still puts me and others through the login loop when I or others try to get into beta.

    The problem is that some of us don't get that far - we get stuck at the first update screen and never make it to the city (server) selector.

    The 'Check Installation' box under Options is selected and greyed out so it can't be de-selected. Erk!

    I just logged on. And i am floating in Ealand. It required for me to do another update 1 file. After that i was golden. The 100 byte update was this morning, that one is the one i had to try 3 times before it took.
    This update here was 124MB and was 1 file. Once I got that one done I logged in and got to my select as sim screen and i was in.

    Keep trying, the one that is giving your grief is the 100 byte update, i think when you get through that one you should be ok.
     
  21. Is this always going to be the problem? Doesnt seem to be much value for money..I know the Devs work hard on this to get it sorted but it seems to be more problematic each time. I have had problems with just one sim. I have 3 accounts, all sims except for this one work fine (she would be the one most skilled) she kept getting stuck despite all the updates on 50% so I double checked I did all the upates did the tc3 bit and I have all the same probs as everyone else and although it updates and i get as far as the sim screen the moment I try to go in it says another update required and also 'Internal error, doesn't matter whether I use the window mode the client or the main one, all the same...wish io hadn't bothered now.

    I update in a loop for a while -- 124k file, I think. Then, I get the 'virus' message and it launches into a scan. Awful.

    this game is such a pile....
     
  24. Now I can get into tc3 (which I dont want) and when i go back into ealand usual naff update which is all crud then the good ole corrupt file message. Is there a valid reason for all this, it wud help if the devs coudl tell us why this happnens then maybe my patience will prevent me from hitting the laptop.

    I don't know what to do -- I have downloaded all kinds of patches between 100k and 200k file size. However, there *is* a change -- now I'm caught in a loop with the 'virus' error screen. I just don't know what to do.

    And, no, I don't have a virus! [​IMG]

    I'll stop complaining soon, but I had really hoped to get in and swap my lava lamp cards. I have a limited window of opportunity to do that. Makes me a bit sad!

    I finally got in I did VDesel trick Load EAL like I usually do , and when it asks you which server to login (EA-Land-Beta, or TC3) choose the "options button" sleect for the game to review your installation, it it did detect a 100 byte update, but it kept on telling me that I need a required update it did that for 20 min and I finally got into it.

    Thanks VDesel for your tip

    That didn't work for me, I still get the 110 byte update and then a continuous loop of select a sim, update required, update 110 byte, select a sim, update required.

    Lee has posted here that he thinks systems have been stabilized.

    If anyone is still trapped in the loop, please speak up in the above thread in the Technical Advice forum.
