Launcher and client issues:
My Launcher won't update. I get "Fatal Error""An error occurred while updating" and/or "Error updating game files. Perhaps the file is open in another program or run an instance of the game."
To play during this test you need to do a clean install - fully delete old version and download launcher from the website: http://starfalltactics.ru/starfall/StarfallSetup.exe
Sorry if it caused inconveniences - sadly, an old version of game launcher and game can work incorrectly or be unstable.
If you are an experienced pc user, you can try the following to fix launcher:
- open task manager, close all versions of starfall launcher you see there.
- start launcher once again, wait while it downloads update
- once it finishes download and closes launcher to restart it, quickly delete the second stafall launcher process in task manager.
Note that we still recommend doing a clean install before the test to ensure it all works correctly.
- LAUNCHER DOESN'T START AT ALL "The program won't start because zlibwapi.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem." but is in the game folder if you check it.
