Issue with patch for NAM 35 installation

9 posts in this topic Last Reply

I am attempting to install the 1.1.638.0 patch that I need to update to NAM 35. I downloaded, but upon installation am being told it cannot find the "old file". Can someone suggest a next step? Thanks

The first thing we need to know it which version of SC4 are you running. Did it come from some install disks or a digital vendor? If it was digital, did you buy it from Origin?

If you have a digital version it should come pre-patched, the patches will fail because they simply aren't required. The exception being the Origin version, but the unpatched version they are selling is sadly unpatchable too.

However if the error occurs updating the disk version, that could be for a number of reasons. If any files related to the patch have been modified from the originals (for example adding the I-HT fix), that will cause the update to fail. You should use the offical patches right away after installing SC4. Once that's out of the way, you are then safe to further modify them if need be. If this doesn't help you, find the file Patchlog.txt that is created in the folder you ran the patch from, paste a copy of it's contents here and we can see exactly what is going wrong.

  • I have 1.1.613.0 installed on 4-4-17, but I still have no NAM 35 installation. I purchased the disks at Amazon, and installed them. My computer had crashed and I updated everything on it. I lost the SC4 disks I had, so I had to purchase the new ones. I did no other modifications prior to attempting the patch install.

    If you're on 1.1.613, that's the European unpatched version.  You'll want to install the SKU2 version of the update.

    If you bought the game from Origin, unfortunately, you're out of luck.  Origin is selling an unpatched and unpatchable version, which is missing a number of stability fixes, and can't run the NAM.  See this thread.  There's several other threads around as well.  Apparently, Origin even issued an "update" at one point, that actually downgraded people's copies to the nerfed 1.1.610.

    If you're going to buy another copy of SC4, I'd recommend GOG.com (Good Old Games) instead of Steam.  It's the same price as Steam's version, but there's no DRM associated with it. 

    If you're willing to push Origin customer service enough, you can probably get a refund from them, as the user in the thread I linked did.
