Surely everyone can see the handwriting on the wall ---- another week and not a syllable of information concerning MC from BFG or EG (I'm not talking about the personal emails some players get).

Seems pretty clear the game has reached its sad conclusion ---- what's it been, a month? And EG seems to have no clue, and BFG can't even get their new GM to work correctly for everyone. Really sort of pathetic. But mainly ---- inexcusable.

I totally agree!!  This is quite lame of the developers!

At least you can get in the game.  For over a month I get a message that my version is out of date and I need to download new version.  There isn't an update available either automatic or manual.  I have gotten the run around from BF for a month!

Hello Billye!

I had the same problem a couple of years ago. I solved it by uninstalling the game from the Game Manager. To be sure, I also uninstalled the Game Manager itself. I then re-downloaded the game (and game manager) and installed it again.

That "forced" the newest version, and I continued where I left off. I did not lose anything, my friend list was intact, and I could continue without problems. I was a bit nervous beforehand and copied the MC files and made screenshots of my items and achievements, but needen't have worried at all.

That was also around the time of a content update.

After that, I set my Game Manager to start in administrative mode, and have not had problems since.

Thank you, Hirento.  I have done that numerous times but I can try again.

Hi again Billye,

If you have already tried it and it didn't work, odds are it won't work now, either.

However, you could try (after the uninstall/re-install) to start the GM in administrative mode.

Then check for game updates

-

Here is how (on PC, windows 10):

Your user account the the PC must have admin rights.

On the icon for the GM, right-click (instead of double-click to start).

That should open a menu with several choices, among them is "Start as administrator". In my menu it is the third choice from the top, with a little shield-icon on.

Click that, and a pop-up (the User Account Control) appears asking if you are sure. Click yes, and the GM will start as normal. but it now has administration rights, in case that setting needs to be "on".

After closing the GM, the "start as admin" is normally turned off, there is a way to make the program always start in admin mode if needed.

BFG help pages also has a how-to on doing this for individual games, but it can be set for all kinds of programs including the GM.
