    No matter what I try, I always get the "Wrong Downloaded File Info." error when I open the launcher and it attempts to patch the game. I've read the "diagnosed causes" on the support page, and I assure you that neither are the cause at this point.

    I've download the game on Chrome, Internet Explorer, with a Download Manager, with Virus Protection disabled/enabled. The file on your website is always the same size, regardless of download method, 1.81 GB.
    I have an exceedingly stable west coast connection that downloads the file on average of 8mbps. I've tried the default install path or a custom path, and tried running both the client and installer as an Admin.

    When the client is opened the first time, it gives the error as it finished extracting 7/7 Itemweapon.edf, when opened a second time it gives the error as it extracts 1/1 thumbs.db.

    I've played on countless private and official servers previously and never once have I seen this issue.
    This is becoming a massive waste of time for what would have been a fun trip down nostalgia lane.

    That's a pretty sweet background image, where do I get it?

    The exact size of the installer should be 1949300680 bytes.

    1,949,300,680 Bytes = 1.81 GB
    It's been the correct size every single time I've downloaded it.

    Check it there's any compatibility issues (Right click -> Troubleshoot compatibility).

    Where did you try to install the game? Mine went to C:\PlayRedFox\RFOnline.
    The RFOnline folder has the following properties (this is right after installation, didn't open the game yet):
    • 6,782,031,134 bytes
    • 9816 files
    • 873 folders
    Upon opening the game and downloading the first patch:
    • 6,782,014,615 bytes
    • 9817 files
    • 874 folders

    Strangely "Troubleshoot Compatibility" actually worked for once. Patch completed after I ran that.

    Perhaps that should be added to the Support page for Client Issues.
    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Try downloading the client with a download manager, to prevent the file from being corrupted.

    um would you like to help me find that link? I cant find it.
    well about the file, I try to compare mine and my friend's file size because he can run the program smoothly without any problem. The installer size is same exactly like he have but when the installation process and patch completed my RF folder size is 6,782,014,421 bytes with 9817 Files and 874 Folders. my friend's folder size is 6,783,219,661 bytes with 9825 Files and 874 Folders. I know that I'm missing 8 files but I dont know what it is.
