  1. I'm enjoying the game but it's been a pain in the ass to keep running. I had to hit the support forums and open a ticket just to get it started. Now the game needs an update and throws error code BLZBNTAGT0000085C every time I try to play it.

    " cannot decrypt content files. Content files are encrypted when they are for a game or patch that is not released yet. You might see this error when your client can't reach our servers to obtain a decryption key.".

    The first time I fixed the error by deleting all the files but that isn't working this time so I opened another ticket.
  2. Well I fixed it by deleting the game and reinstalling it.
  3. would've been the first thing i would've done
  4. But it doesn't make sense. I can't download the patch so why would I be able to download the game with the patch.
  5. bfun, some things in life just can't be explained.
  6. I was going to make a comment about running it in a Windows 98 VM, but realized that was a different game. Fuck, I've been out of the gaming loop for a while now.
