The other guys on NFF said they had an update over steam.

 

2mb.

 

What is in the update? Why is there no official correspondence?

 

A security patch?

 

A new FM ?

 

I bet it is a EULA update.... maybe they sold RoF off? Who knows...

 

S!

It's not working for me - getting a 10027 error when trying to log on, and when I click 'update' the splash screen just disappears.

The error says something about 'packed data verification'.

Normal people don't understand such nonsense.

Total confusion while trying to run the game tonight.
It told me to eliminate the mods first while I didn’t have any.
Running the game in mod version worked however but was not what I wanted.
Punching update made the launcher disappear.
Looking up the executes in the explorer I could finally activate the updater there in order to get the new patch and finally run ROF again.
End good ... etc

The updates always overwrite the settings files and saved head positions :( .

Here's where the update news should be (if you type 13, 12 etc in address you'll get previous updates). Nohting. I suppose it's privacy policy update again, or something equally important.

Yes, it checks integrity of settings files and overwrites them with defaults...

EDIT: It still says v1.37, and my firewall just let RoF exe to the internet (did not register it as altered from version). So, cosmetic update with settings wipe.

 

 

On my PC the update has changed:

-railroad and trench textures (bunch of files in /data/graphics/LANDSCAPE_FIS/roads/Binary)

-my settings, control bindings (!!!) and snap views. And set game to mouse control.

EDIT: EDIT: railroads and trenches seem the same to me...

A privacy update. Gee whizz.

 

Must be Steam prodding them to get their shite together or get kicked off.

 

wow. Imagine reading the contract steam forces you to sign! ho ho ho.

 

and we all silently hoped it would be something cool!

 

but no.

 

Well ... at least something is still working! : - )

Had the exact same experience.  Updater just disappeared.  However, setting Mods On, and then doing a Recovery worked, and I was able to get back up and running again....

Now, to reset all my snap-views once again...   :angry:

 

...and, yes, *some* indication of what the update was about (ie. patchnotes ???) would be nice...

Exact same experience here as well - could not get updater to work from launcher (kept just disappearing) but did work when ran the rof_updater.exe itself.  Since I always run with mods on I had not noticed any issues until I saw this thread and tested it with mods off.  Glad we still have a forum to let us know what the heck is going on - must say it's pretty bad form to push out this kind of stealth update with no warning, notice or anything.  I wonder how many folks this will drive away 'cause they give up without checking the forums.

Cant you save your current settings file prior to update and then replace the updated settings with the old file.

Yeah the update through 'settings' has just been vanishing as soon as it's actioned recently...but can update with the updater icon. I had a 227 MB last night and another today, didn't see it's size.  It's nothing exciting that's for sure.

Getting a 10027 error when trying to log on, and have no idea what is wrong. I was away over the 4th of July and have added nothing . I have no idea where Mods on or off are . I see a 3rd party folder in the game folder and can no0t delete it. I can copy and paste a copy to desktop, but I still can't delete that file folder .

​No one has access to this system but me

I need help in layman's terms no acronyms or abbreviations . I can not get into the game in any way off line or on with out more help .

I also got this. I edited my startup.cfg and entered my email & password that had been deleted by the update. I went to settings and enabled 'mods on' which had also been knobbled by this exciting update. After that I could log in as normal. Except for all my graphics settings which also got....oh....why bother....

 

Try either or both..

Go to your main ROF directory and open folder 'bin_game' then 'release'.  Find the wee yellow icon and click on it.  You can turn on mods there, and also in the graphics heading you can make your game full screen again, the update windowed mine.

 

These pictures should help.
