Connection Attempt Error
« on: January 25, 2010, 12:30:13 AM »
I'm enjoying your mod quite a lot, however I ran into a strong problem. I launch the EFLauncher and the regular version of the game fine, however I cannot download the first update. Whenever I attempt to update this error message appears:

"A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond"

I don't know if this is a problem on my end or your end, if I hit the Show Info box, everything is a green checkbox except for "Latest Eastern Front Version" of which is marked by a Red X box, and states "Unable to Receive Info" I'm not sure how to solve the issue, so any help is greatly appreciated, as all of my friends who play the game updated succesfully, and I cannot play with them. List of specs I believe relevant:

- Computer running 64-bit Windows 7
- Running EFLauncher as administrator, and attempted without administrator running
- No Antivirus installed
- Windows Firewall Running
- Game purchased through box copy, so I am not running any aspect through Steam
- Running the EFLauncher v2.4
- Running CoH at most recent version

I believe I installed the game correctly, as I was able to launch using the launcher for multiple games. I played 3-4 games with my friends which were all completed. Any help with this part is greatly appreciated. Other than this issue, this is a wonderful mod and I applaud your work.

I attempted to use the feedback section on the launcher, but it did not allow me to submit the feedback.

Yup, I only started the attempt recently.

Is there a place I can download the patch separate?
