I guarantee you that you're trying to patch an already patched game. Check the version number, it will give you the game's date. You should only apply patches newer than the version number date.

:dntknw: sounds to me like you have a bad game out of the box. exchange it for a new one???

 

Also check out the ThirdWire Forums and search there and/or ask TK for help.

I have telled following another guy some weeks ago and it worked for him :

 

install WOV out of the box, then start it and do a single mission.

Then try to apply the patch 1. If it works, do another single mission. Repeat this sequence until all patches are installed.

 

It's worth a try.

Good Luck

Well i tried your theory Crusader,and once again nothing,maybe the problem is as Sidewinder86 said within the game itself,i'll just replace the copy and we'll see from there,thanks anyway for the help guys.
