    I've heard a few people have had that issue but I haven't personally experienced it myself. Hopefully it might be fixed soon especially with the upcoming special maintenances.

    I'm not sure if this works, but try going into your PWI element folder and open elementclient.exe (example: "C:\PWI_en\element\elementclient.exe") and see if that works. It should trigger Arc to open it. If that doesn't work, try the PWI patcher folder and open patcher.exe (example: "C:\PWI_en\patcher\patcher.exe").

    My place to chill is in my Homestead out the way and where no one can see me.

    In regards to arc issues. Launching it like has been suggested should also tell arc where its installed and should not ask again. Im guessing they have updated some of the arc file locations.

    as for the Titles again im not really part of the team that deals with that, im sure they know about the issue tho.

    Thanks.​​

    Usually around this hour, but this time it feels longer than usual? Might be just my impression though.

    As for where I chill... either south archo or east archo, very often near the banker. Sometimes near south neverfall banker, but that's not as often as in archo.

    Either way, it's almost always near a banker, because I got loot to look at (and decide what is useful to keep or what to trash despite the whole "might come useful in the future" thing).

    Servers are back up now.

    I haven't really chilled in particular spots lately. I usually just drop my character off in Magnier, my homestead, or wherever my char is when I get tired. If Adventure Kingdom is open I like to hang out there.

    I used to hang out a lot more at south archosaur, either at the banker or a spot near the AH, behind the apothecary but I'm rarely in those spots now.

    I haven't got this error at the first log-in time for today. But after I tried to re-log, I do not have the "Play" option, and Arc wants me to re-download the whole PWI game. Which is quiet unacceptable, it is going to take another 24 hrs or more for me to download. Is that a bug or do we really need to redownload?

    I do not understand why Tideswell is getting soooo much more maintenance than other servers... they can play and we have to wait... this (my morning) morning they were doing general maint.. now the others are up again.. Tideswell is after a period of being available.. now down again
    Why?

    it depends on your internet speed.(im using 50mb connection) the game is 15gb takes me 30mins to download and 15mins waiting for patcher to finish. i dunno why they did this. now i need to relocate my hotkeys in every toon i have and costumized ini. files

    Have same issue. Have to reinstall game even after trying to reinstall ARC. What's funny is this issue isn't a problem on a separate laptop, just my desktop.

    I'm having this issue as well, even though I've managed to log into a client of PWI. Re-opening Arc in the same account as the one I'm logging in (after killing it in Task Manager), the Install button is suddenly there as of about half an hour ago, even though I'm actually still playing the game!

    This needs to be fixed. Some of us have very slow internet and missing an entire day does affect things like Check Ins which are highly rewarding in PWI and more so for those of us with lots of characters.

    2018/10/25 06:23:32Patcher 开始运行ARC_DOWNLOAD_ERR:Load Library Failed, Dll Name is ArcClientSdk.dll
    2018/10/25 06:23:32ARC_DOWNLOAD_ERR:Get SDK Interface <CC_INIT> ERROR
    2018/10/25 06:23:32ARC_DOWNLOAD_ERR:Get SDK Interface <CC_NeedSkipPlatform> ERROR
    2018/10/25 06:23:32ARC_DOWNLOAD_ERR:Get SDK Interface <CC_ArcGameLauncherHasIntalled> ERROR

    nice welcome present for me...
    currently no way to fix it since i don't wanna reverse engineer arc and get all the dlls and name and manually put them on a reg file.
    why don't you pay me pwi.. i will fix ur game for you.

    one clue is they prolly messed up the patching...(earlier ones.. ) since my newly patched one doesnt have problem only my laptop which i left patching during maintenance...

    download everything. .again.. the fix....
    if you have dirt poor connection see you next week or even 2 weeks hahaha.

    another fail safe is always keep a working version on another computer that is 1 less late patch than your main ones... so unless the patching has problems there is still a way to fix it.
    gl..

    maybe its a sign for us to quit already.. hahahah
