    Default Having to re-download full game ever update.

    Does anyone else have this problem.
    Every update Glyph does, I get - " Your local files cannot be updated, a full re-download is required."
    Getting really annoying.

    Same here. WTF is this?


    PVP is undoable during the download. This is absolute bullcrap. Might as well download TERA.

    Maybe reading the announcements would help now and then.

    I clicked "Yes" when I got that message. 3 minutes later download was done. Still don't see what the big deal was

    For those getting the error message, open your Task Manager, make sure NOTHING related to Rift or Glyph is running (if it is, end the process). Then re-open Glyph and try again.

    I ignored the re-download message. I clicked yes to patch and got: Error #1008.

    problem is glyph. however if your a regular forum user you would probably already know the game prompt to download the entire game was already known.. was in the pre-patch notes last night..

    I found an old thread to download the game client that was way before glyph.. I never have glyph or unnecessary game complete downloads.. Glyph was seriously the worst Trion idea ever. Today's patch has the same issues, Margle place fps 9 fps.. I wish for once they could fix the simple stuff.

    There are two main components to RIFT patches (three if you include the Glyph client). One is a small set of static files required for the patching process (Tiny), and the other being the streaming client/assets (Big!).

    With today's patch we required a full download of the static files (roughly 100 Megabytes depending on the state of your install).

    Unfortunately when a "Full Download" is triggered for either part, the same ominous message is triggered. We're looking into separating out the messages so they're a bit more clear with future updates.

    Okay, then...what do we do to fix the Error #1008 message? 'There was a problem moving existing files in preparation for the update.'

    This happens after an initial 62MB of download (which is only part of the yellow portion of the bar). I'm running the launcher via Steam, and a full close of both the client and Steam doesn't make a difference. Haven't tried a full system reboot yet.


    Ah-hah! Solution found, thanks to Rahil. http://forums.riftgame.com/technical...ml#post5072243

    In short, go into the Rift folder (mine's in the Steam folder, in steamapps/common/rift ) and delete dbghelp.dll then try the patch update again. Much thanks to Rahil!
