Luncher is Checking for updates too long.
« on: 10-01-2018, 01:01:07 »
Hey guys,

so I've played FH for years now and had no problem what so ever. However a few days ago a problem appeared. When I start the game it shows this small windows saying "Checking for updates" and it stays like this and the game just won't load. I can't even press the Skip button. Before it appeared for 10 secs or something and the game menu appeared where i selected Play to start the game. I don't know why it doesn't load now. Can someone help me with this?

OK so the game loaded but it took around 30 mins. Isn't that a little too much? As i mentioned in my previous post this checking for updates usually took 10-15 seconds at most.

Yeah, that's too long. Have you tried the following:
- normal connection speeds normal?
- no ports blocked?
- repair button in the Launcher does nothing?

Well lets see:
- my Internet connection is same as always and it's pretty good.
- i'm not sure what exactly you mean bu i haven't touched anything on my computer. It is the same as it has always been. I havent plugged or unplugged stuff from it.
- i haven't tried that yet i will give it a go now.

OK after the repair completed it now takes around 5 mins to load. That is still kinda long but still better than yesterday.

Maybe try repair a few times. I don't know what's causing this, but I'm glad repair at least alleviated the problem.

Sorry for the late reply. There is no issue with your computer, just bad luck it seems.

It should not happen anymore, now that I banned a few chinese ip ranges that were sometimes causing a ddos outage on one of our two update servers. Also the requests from our Launcher were really still done with the default 5 minute timeout  :-X

I guess most other people who had the same issues just aborted the update check and restarted the launcher. It´s a 50% chance to hit the bad/good server if one is unavailable.
