Launcher error list / Problem updating SFD

Post by Gurt » Wed Mar 02, 2016 7:57 pm

Here's a simple list of all errors that the launcher can generate.

Most of these errors can be solved by first restarting your computer and then running the launcher as administrator. Right-click and choose run as administrator.

LAUNCHER ERRORS
Running the launcher as administrator may solve most of the errors listed here – especially I/O errors. Right click the launcher and choose 'run as administrator'.

NEW UPDATES
New updates usually means more traffic to our servers shortly after an update. Most errors here is a result of that. Simply wait a few hours and try again. You can also try to download the update directly from https://mythologicinteractive.com/SuperfightersDeluxe

ERROR 1: Downloading file list failed.
This may happen if a connection cannot be established to the server or if the server is offline. Make sure nothing blocks communication and wait a few minutes and try again.

ERROR 2: Server failed to return file list.
The server failed to return a correct file list for some reason. Wait a few minutes and try again.

ERROR 3: Problem parsing file list.
The file list returned from the server is corrupt or incomplete. Wait a few minutes and try again.

ERROR 4: Problem parsing file list.
The file list returned from the server is corrupt or incomplete. Wait a few minutes and try again.

ERROR 5: Problem downloading file.
This may happen if the connection to the server is lost during the operation.

ERROR 6: Problem downloading file.
The server could not process the request. Wait a few minutes and try again.

ERROR 7: Problem downloading file.
Downloaded file got an invalid format. Wait a few minutes and try again.

ERROR 8: Problem downloading file.
Downloaded file got an invalid format. Wait a few minutes and try again.

ERROR 9: Problem downloading file.
The signature of the downloaded file does not match the file list. Wait a few minutes and try again.

ERROR 10: The game could not start.
The game could not start for some reason. Maybe the .exe file has been moved or deleted or you have some security error preventing you to start the .exe from the launcher. Make sure the .exe file exist and start it manually.

ERROR 11: Problem removing file.
The launcher could not delete old files. This could be because of unauthorized access or the file may be used by some other process. Make sure there’re no other processes accessing the file and that you have read and write access to the file/folder.

ERROR 12: Problem saving file.
The launcher could not save/create the file. This could be because of unauthorized access or the existing file to be replaced may be used by some other process. Make sure there’re no other processes accessing the existing file and that you have read and write access to the folder structure.

ERROR 13: Finalizing files failed. Game may have become broken.
There was a problem while moving all downloaded files to their final destination. This could be because of unauthorized access or the existing file to be replaced may be used by some other process - most commonly an existing SFD process running. Make sure there’re no other processes accessing the existing file and that you have read and write access to the folder structure for SFD. Restart your computer and try again.

ERROR 14: File list empty.
Server did not return any file list. Wait a few minutes and try again.

ERROR 15: Unable to create files, security exception.
You don’t have the rights to create files in the folder structure for SFD. The launcher cannot proceed. Make sure you have read and write permissions and try again.

ERROR 16: Unable to delete files, security exception.
You don’t have the rights to delete files in the folder structure for SFD. The launcher cannot proceed. Make sure you have read and write permissions and try again.

ERROR 17: Unable to create files, unauthorized access.
The operating system denies access to create files in the folder structure for SFD. The launcher cannot proceed. Make sure you have read and write permissions and try again.

ERROR 18: Unable to delete files, unauthorized access.
The operating system denies access to delete files in the folder structure for SFD. The launcher cannot proceed. Make sure you have read and write permissions and try again.

ERROR 19: Unable to create files.
Other I/O Error. You can’t create files in the folder structure for SFD. The launcher cannot proceed. Make sure you have read and write permissions and try again.

ERROR 20: Unable to delete files.
Other I/O Error. You can’t delete files in the folder structure for SFD. The launcher cannot proceed. Make sure you have read and write permissions and try again.

Most of these errors can be solved by first restarting your computer and then running the launcher as administrator. Right-click and choose run as administrator.

If you manage to update the game but it doesn't load the full game, try to press the "Force Update" button in the launcher as administrator. It will clear the filelist, remove any files that shouldn't exist and download certain files again. This might help solve loading related errors.

If you still can't solve the errors above by running the launcher as administrator try to restart your computer first. If the problem persist try to update the files manually by downloading the latest SFD version as a .rar file from the Superfighters Deluxe page. Then simply replace all files in your SFD installation folder with the files in the .rar file (Custom maps, your profile and settings are stored in your Documents/Superfighters Deluxe folder after PreAlpha 1.4.1 so they won't be replaced - if you plan to update an older version of SFD then you must manually backup any custom data for later).

You can also update the game by downloading the latest installer version from the Superfighters Deluxe page and then:
1: Uninstall Superfighters Deluxe from your computer first.
2: Manually remove any remaining files from the SFD installation folder (might still be a few files left if you have updated the game since you installed it).
3: Install Superfighters Deluxe again.
