over the past 3-4 days i have been trying to get requiem to work i have un-installed it and reinstalled it about 3 times hoping it would fix this problem and i keep getting the same bloody error reports every single time!
It either says (Old file does not exist SYSTEM/Requiem.exe)when the patch gets to SYSTEM/Requiem.exe or either says (requiem Old File not found a file of the same name was found. no update done since file contents do not match)

If anybody could help please i would be so grateful Thanks!

When you reinstall:

You must uninstall first and delete the remaining files in the requiem folder (save the screenshots, if you have any). Then reset the pc and install.

Once you finish the install, copy the installed game in a safe location to have it as a backup in case you need to reinstall again (if the error come up again, just delete the installed game and replace it for the backup in the original location, but always save a copy). Then try to run the game normally and see if it update, but you always can do a manual patch.

Also, wich windows do you have? Maybe its blocking the patch.

To search for the manual patches and guides about how to install and update the game, check my signature (press the "show" button).

Once you install it, make the backup like i said, it save some time. You also can try the manual patches: http://forums.warppo...s/page__st__175

(edited) if you have the manual patches, you must place it in the Patches folder, if that folder doesnt exists, then create it inside the Requiem folder.

In my experience i used to deal with this problem when my pc had a virus. After clean or format in some cases, the game worked again normally, so maybe u have the same problem.

Did you try the manual patches? Check my signature to find the links to the manual patches and other install guides.

If still fail, go to the requiem folder and open the version.dat file with notepad. Paste what it saids here but dont modify anything there.
