Problems installing UK patch through updater

Recommended Posts

The updater thats used to update the game via the game menu downloaded the update but then just did nothing for five minuites. So i went and looked for patch on kotor 2 folder, found it in temp folder, copyed it and pasted to my download patches folder where i keep all game patches (just incase), then i clicked cancel on the updater as i think it froze or somit.


Anyhow so i have the 15 meg patch, now what do i do with it to install it as i tryed running the patch updater again to see if it sees the patch it downloaded and would install it, but no its simply overrighting it all the time. I think i heard of pasting it into Overide folder, i have done that and it it there ziped (as it was) and unziped but still dont think it updated it. How can i update it please? I refuse to download it again as it will just download what i have.

Had the same problem. Try Azuth's tips here

My UK version started patching itself waaaaay after it actually downloaded. Total time was 2 hours and 30 something minutes, but I am on 56K.



Im 56k as well, i thought it would patch itself (after patch downloaded via updater) instantly and be installed in like 1 min.


2 hours after u downloaded via the updater, thats rediculous.

Yeah...and the weird thing is, after it said "Download Complete", I opened up Windows Task Manager to check the network connections, and nothing was coming in or out. Then, 40 mintues later, I saw the autoupdater going through the actual patching.

I didn't get to try out the trick of disconnecting from the net after the download was complete, so if you're gonna give it a second try, might wanna do that.

The tip about disconecting is bogus i tryed it and it doesnt work.


That's strange, 'cause the tip worked fine in my case.


I had the same problem (autopatcher apparently "froze" after completing the dowload for the uk version) but I decided to take my chances, disconected and what do you know, the patching process started immediately.


So, thanks for the tip to Azuth; now let's see what the patch does...
