Update Error 20524Follow

I finally finished getting the patch, and now when the program tries to install it, I'm getting a message that says "An Update Error Has Occurred. Error 20524" There is no other information given. I have no idea what to do now.

I haven't ever replaced any files, swapped dats, used modded UI, or ANYTHING like that. I've only ever used the game the way that SE gave it to me. I didn't even use a third party program to get the patch...I used their crappy torrent client.

Does anybody have any idea what the problem could be, or how I fix it?

This happened to me during one of the small October patches. I googled it and tried some fixes, none of them worked. I eventually had to do a re-install. I don't have problems with getting 300k+ sec with the patcher, so patching didn't make me want to blow my brains out. Give it a google and try some of the fixes AT YOUR OWN RISK. Good luck though, hopefully you won't have to go through too much hassle.

I figured out that I needed to go into the C:/Program Files(x86)/SquareEnix/Final Fantasy XIV/ folder, which is where the boot.ver and game.ver files are. They still listed an old date, so I changed them both (in Notepad) to read 2010.11.25.0002.

At first, it seemed like this was going to fix the problem. I didn't get any error message from the installer, but when I got to the part of the login process where you choose which of your characters to play, the screen comes up but I never see any of the menu options or my characters. It just sits on that screen forever and nothing happens.


Any suggestions?
