The servers will come down for Update 18.8.16 on October 12.

  • 13:00 GMT
  • 9:00 AM EDT
  • 6:00 AM PDT

The estimated downtime is 2 hours.


The servers are back up and the Halloween content is live, including the new instance.

You will find the new instance in Uturn Forest, but you'll first need to get the "buried" mission from a Draculeet in one of the capitol cities.

You have until November 7th to get all of the goodies!

First version that FC hopes to offer on Steam, which is a pretty big deal.

I recall something like this from when they decided to rearrange where files are located. Or it could be a UAC problem if you have the main install in a protected folder.

Depending on when you played last, if you still have the small client, it just doesn't work anymore.

Not sure what else would cause it on multiple systems.

I had similar problems on a windows 10 system that I've been borrowing from work. After patching, the patcher said it needed to reboot the system (which it never did before). After reboot, I launched AO and the launcher detected a "corrupted" installation, then proceeded to download a bunch more stuff. After the second round of patching, everything seems to be working. This is with the new beta client.

Ironically, the patch worked perfectly on my ancient Linux box with the old client running in Wine.

I play regularly...
I renamed the anarchy folder, booted the game and it booted with no prefs, renamed the anarchy folder to the original and everything works as it should...
I have NO idea if it patched or not, but it runs lol.

The new folder system gets picky about names. Sometimes. It turned in to a huge mess where they can't even help people much because half of the time, things that break it, shouldn't break it. While others that have moved or renamed stuff have no problems, when FC says it shouldn't work. Fun times.
