City of Heroes: Victory

Victory Downloader just sits there


Recommended Posts

I get this box when I open the launcher. After I click update it downloads a file and then this exact box pops up again. If I close it the game downloader appears but it doesn't download the game, just sits there. I also get another error box too, I attached the screenshot below this one. Help.

I just pushed a new build out that should fix the 2nd message you got 'Value does not exist' This was me mishandling not having a previous install via Tequila at all.  The 404 error in the updater screen is expected as I've not finished the script to take my commit messages and make pretty change logs yet. And the repeating update prompts are likely your AV catching the downloader as being suspicious, whitelisting the VictoryLauncher.exe should fix that issue.

After grabbing the update and whitelisting the launcher I'm getting a null value exception.

After the launcher advice on where not to put the client

I clicked OK and got hit with the exception.

I've chucked the exception details into a .txt here.

Sorry about that, I've pushed another change up which should resolve this.  I had the folder selection code one level too deep to get called when clicking OK on that instructional dialog.

I just downloaded the launcher.  I did not have tequilla or Coh previously installed on this PC.  lets face it Coh ended almost 10 years ago so this is a newer laptop.  But anyways I click play and nothing happens.  Not sure what I am doing or if I did something wrong.  Was hoping I could get some advice to launch the game.

Hello, sorry for not seeing this sooner!  Try hitting System -> Verify, this issue usually means the launcher failed to check the status of the local files for some reason.  Sometimes this is a permissions issue, other times it's just some odd interaction.  Make sure you're not trying to install to anything within your user profile, no C:\users\* folders, recommended paths are something like c:\games\Victory, or c:\games\COH or the like.
