I get the samething, I gave up and simply ignore the update but still. Very annoying that the launcher has failed and there has been no help in getting anything resolved from the admins. What about new players wanting to join? They find that they can't even install the game. Then you have those that are vets and needing to reinstall for one reason or another and bam....now they can not play. I had the issue where my room mates son got his pc back up and running and could not reinstall UOF. Luckily I had an old version of UOF and we did it that way. He doesn't have any of the new graphics and I don't even think he can see booty island, but he can at least play again. I have been searching the forums for a few days looking for an answer from an Admin. and nothing. It's been total silence. Not good, Not good at all.
