Cant reinstall game after uninstalling due to stuck on "checking game"

Recommended Posts

Norej_

i was able to update today but tried to play later in the day and was stuck on "Checking game" when i click play so i decided to reinstall, Deleted everything and now im stuck on 0/0mb downloaded. i have ran it as admin, turned off anti virus, tried intalling it on desktop and nothing has worked. Anybody have a similar problem?

hopefully that works for him but i have downloaded and re-downloaded the launcher multiple times now and nothing. Its def on BSG side of things doesn't make sense that none of us can even re-download.

Same thing happened to me. I figured maybe I needed to Reinstall the game completely. Now I can't even do that.

I can confirm, this 100% works. Find the file, an edit it from your Desktop. If you edit it from where it currently is you won't be able to save the changes. Once you do it from Desktop, move it back to where it was. Then restart the EFT Launcher an install.

*** MAKE sure that when you edit the file in notepad, that it isnt a .txt file when you save it and put it back in the folder.

can confirm this works! Thanks for the link

i just completely reinstalled the game and it updated automatically so you dont have to download the patch
go to the link for the fix dont just copy and paste the line from what someone post in here.

dont forget to upvote Norej_ for helping us get the fix!

FIX 

https://thetarkovhandbook.doctorsoup143.tv/Settings/

1.) Click the GAME DOWNLOAD FIX link.
2.) Find the file name 'host'
3.) Drag that file to desktop and edit it (using notepad)
4.) Add the line as shown in the link
5.) Save and drag file back to original folder

** PLEASE NOTE: DO NOT SAVE AS .TXT FILE!
If you save it using notepad, you have to delete the file extension .txt (Make sure your 'file name extensions' option is enabled)
