    Is anyone else getting the update error? I havent logged in for over a week and tonight I got:


    failed to connect to the server. This may be due to networking issues or could be due to scheduled server maintenance. please verify your netwok connection and select retry to attempt to update the game again or select quit to exit the game.

    Im obviously online .... [​IMG]

    I quit the game a few months ago to let allthe Ea-Land stuff play out a bit, re-activated my account today, downloaded the 1.2gb ea-land update, made a sim, played for a little over and hour and logged off, no problems at all. Tonight I try to log back in and uh-oh, right back to the same problems that caused me to leave the game last november. I'll sit patiently for a few days I guess [​IMG]

    Hmmm.... I logged in fine - no idea what the problem is.

    Maybe it has something to do with the Valentines Day splash screen (which is new) - did you guys use the Patch.exe to log in or the Client?
    If Client, there is your likely suspect. Use the Patch to get the update first, then the Client.
    If you used the Patch.exe when you ran into your problems, then do not read this post.

    I didn't see a Valentine's Day splashscreen. Is this just an EA-Land thing? I've been in TC3 all evening...

    my error is even better.

    There was an error updating the updater. press 'Continue' to skip the updater update, or 'Quit' to quit the game.

    huh? what? could you fit the word update in there enough?
    but i did just see the nice pink and red valentines screen *off to gag now*
    hey at least the continue button worked.

    Danny might want to read the release notes says somthing about on login from Danny Dots deny deny deny.

    seriously though it seems the update patch server is borked so that maybe you screwed until monday.
    hopefuly somone will spot it and fix it today.

    yup Monday is a good bet

    It seems that the updater is down. This means a problem with EA's server not your game installation so trying to re-download right now isn't a good idea.

    We're unable to patch between cities and if there has been any kind of update since you last logged in, you're unable to connect to the updater to start the patch.

    Last time this happened it was a bit hit and miss - some kept trying and eventually got in.

    If you last played in a production city then you probably won't have any issues logging in.

    I've started a thread in Tech Advice for this problem.

  33. I have always had the error "updating the updater" and always clicked continue and it took me to the log in page. I was always able to play. I never had a problem until last night. I switched from AV to EAland and it wanted me to update. During that update it failed connecting to the server. It always fails at the same point, "connecting to downloads.tso.ea.com:26100". I havent been able to get past it since.
    Hope the info helps.

    To save everyone looking in two different places for updates - and to save Lee having to update twice, I'm going to lock this thread and ask that you all use the current thread in Tech advice
