    Sooo, the maintenance is still going for another 5 hours right? (It says maintenance when I click play.)

    Also, the new launcher tried to download the whole game again to by pass it do the following:

    ♦ Accept the redownload of the game and then cancel it after a few MB's, just to let it create the folders automatically
    ♦ Open your Nexon/Vindictus EU/en-EU (or DE for germans?)
    ♦ Select everything in this folder, from the top 'bin' folder to the last file 'zlib1.dll' and copy the whole thing. (or use shortcut combinations: ctrl + a and ctrl + c)
    ♦ Go back to the Nexon main folder and you should see a 'Library' folder, click it! Continue to open the folders that follow. (vindictus/appdata/en-US)
    ♦ Now paste the stuff you copied earlier from the EU folder.
    ♦ Open the launcher and try play the game. The 15 GB 'download' will turn into a 200 MB 'update' and it'll finally be done.
    ♦ Click Play !

    It probably happens when the EU client's uninstall entry is removed, because the new launcher automatically found my client's folder for me and it updated with that approx. 224 MB data.

    Currently the game is in maintenance, so the message you are getting may be related to that.

    The NA maintenance should end at 22.00 CET. Please keep an eye on the official notice for updates

    if you are still having errors after the maintenance is complete please post a screenshot of the error you receive.

    All the best

    I am not entirely sure what you are saying but I just looked up the time in AEDT to make sure the announcement is correct and it says it is still only 7:15am ADET (at the time of this post), so it seems like the announcement is correct for all.

    I know AUS has some different time zones so make sure to convert the one specified on the announcement to yours.

    I'm not sure if it works but you can go to this folder C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\NexonLauncher and open the apps-settings.db file. You will find a line in it that's name is "installPath". Check if it points to the old client's location. If not then first close the launcher, change it to the correct path, save the file, and open the launcher again, and see what happens.

    And also give me a feedback if it worked or not. : P
