Hi, I have 2 problems. First when I click update in the games menu all it does is exit me out of the game. The second problem is i cant update escalation. I dl the patch from novalogic.com but its like the exact same thing as the typhoon rising patch its the same size and it wont let me save it to the same folder as the typhoon rising patch is in. And when i install it all it does is just update typhoon rising. WHAT DO I DO. I want to play my 30 dollar game but i cant, and novologic doesnt give a crap cause they wont answer my quistions. Please help.
I like you

Well the Escalation Update, is actually just a Joint Ops Update. So if you have JO fully up to date, Escalation should work to?
Thats what i kinda thought but it doesnt work. I can play joint ops but when i try to play escalation it says i have the an incompatable version. Also on the bottom of the menu screen for typhoon risng its says version 5.1 or whatever the new one is but under that it says escalation version 1.000 or whatever. So I really dont know what to do.
Guys..ther are 2 updates you must have. 1 for JO and 1 for escalation.Jordan,it sounds like you DLing the wrong one. Make sure it says its for escalation. I just bought mine on sunday...upated it ..and Booom...I'm online ...no problems. But yes I did try to play and it said I had the wrong version at first, but after the escalation update, I logged right on.
I did try both of them and it still didnt work, but not im having an even worse problem, now I uninstalled both, and reinstalled and now i cant even update to 5. whatever on just jo. I appreciate your help anyway man.
Ok i think i may have figured out my problem. When I open the update it extracts the files to typhoon rising and not escalation. Does anybody know how I can get them to extract to escalation? Thanks.
Jordan...you shouldn't have to extract them at all. Just Dl them to you desktop and run them from there. Unless you are using Nova'a auto update wich should just put them in the proper gamefolders automaticly.
Thats what I did. This is so frustrating. My auto update doesnt even work whenever i click update it just exits me out of the game, does anybody know how to fix that? Thanks.
HHmm...you know I had it do that once a few months ago with my JO update. My auto update just sat there and wouldn't work,so I DL'd it manualy from Nova and it worked. It may be your firewall blocking it? So tell me...did you Dl your update manualy from Novalogic? If you did ,what does it say when you run it? I feel your frustration.lol.
Yes i dled it manually from nova, and it just doesnt do anything. I just called them 2 times and neither person gave me any usefull advice whatsoever, I apprecciate you trying to help me but i just dont think its ganna work and im so so so so so so pissed. Thanks anyway.
