Second post in as many minutes...

Um I could login to the game fine earlier today, but now when I try to it accepts my username and password, the game starts but just before you normally would select your character where the big EVERQUEST II logo is, I get this error message;

"Login Rejected: The client's server does not match the administrator's. Please rerun the patcher."

So what does this mean and what do I do to fix it?

Thanks all!

Most likely this problem: LinkTo answer your other question cross-topic:Seeing your chars, when the patcher starts has no meaning. This char list is created by your local files (based on your last log in). If you don't see them in the char selection, then they are prolly gone. You may contact CS, as they may restore them under certain circumstances.(If it had been just 6 month, your chances are high. They did at least one real character wipe already though earlier)

I had a similarish problem, it told me "Client version does not match the server version, please rerun the patcher" logging into EU, and the Update screen took 20seconds.  I reran the patcher twice, did a full file scan, and still it gave me the same message.I have just switched to US servers, and it seems to have kicked in the update, so fingers crossed, it might work when I swap back to EU.

Today on Wednesday the server (Innovation) should be updated and I gets after which I EQ2 run lets only the reference that the Client version is not correct with us. And also completely Scan left, always the same several times continuous the Updater suppl.-smooth-eats. Servers are UP however the Patcher get themselves not the new data and one cannot thereby not the play start!

Just to report back, swapping to the US version seems to have worked, I logged into Antonia Bayle, logged out, and swapped back to EU, when you do this, it runs a normally quite short file check, but this time it seems to get the patcher to kick in properly....just a tip in case anyone else is having this problemEDIT:Scrap that....it still is giving the same message "Client version does not match the server version, please rerun the patcher" *goes off to find another fix for this*

Don't want to disappoint you, - but... I think you are right now just patching back to the GU 44 version. (May want to check this topic).

Sounds about right...just checked the Patch logs for both my EU and US login, and the US one shows a string of messages reading"[08:52:20] Patcher: --- File Discrepancy (Size) Confirmed.  File is incorrect version."It then lists the different versions and the ones on my system after the EU login attempt are all earlier version.

It ain't patching on DE-Servers, possibly all EU Servers. It just stays on EverQuest II (Apr 30 2008 11:37:00) USER OPTIMIZED: SOEBuild=4830L. I cannot find a way to bypass this since it is just not loading the new Build.

SOL with midnight on the Westcoast, no one in the office for another 9 hours and Europe just waking up. A day down the drain.....

So what's the verdict? Just wait and see if it sorts itself out?

Well, the status on the network pages has changed in the last 45 minutes from "All servers are up" toAll servers are up except for Innovation (is locked) Runnyeye (is locked) Splitpaw (is locked) Storms (is locked) Valor (is locked)So, maybe, they are working on it *crosses fingers*

Well after the same error I did the USA patch and got into the game no problem, but when I switched back to an EU server, Splitpaw, it is now taking 7 HOURS to patch itself! I am wondering what the state of my game will be after all this mucking about. SMILEY

The network status page has just changed to "This is a notification that UK worlds will be updated at 5:00 AM London Time on the 05/14/2008. The estimated downtime will be 6 hours. - SOE Operations team"So....maybe in ½ hour or so *crosses fingers more*

I think there were additional problems with the server before the patch even hit us (EU server). I know on RE, all this past week, we've had mass crashes going on and yesterday people kept being unable to log in certain characters.

Considering I'm not even getting any patch to download, I think the issue may be more than just servers still being down.Has anyone actually downloaded an update today from the EU patcher? Is it actually on the patcher at all?Info would be nice please!

I'm getting a banner saying GU45 is live, patch notes saying it's live, but it says Splitpaw is locked and the 'patch' takes 1 second.

Please can we get some kind of feedback as to what is happening?
