Well, it looks like EA has made up for their reticence in their last patch report.  This is the longest one I've seen in a while.  Also, where is the download link?

By that, do you mean the error where a light only illuminates the floor it is on but not the floor above it even though the ceiling is open?

Also, it seems like they will never fix the excavation bug. AM to the rescue!

Yup, along with lot edges, wall edges and the occasional "newly-placed lights don't actually give off light" glitch.

Also, it seems like they will never fix the excavation bug. AM to the rescue!

Doesn't surprise me. I wonder what this patch actually breaks this time?

Who knows?  I'm certainly not touching this patch until AM is updated.

I've been reading elsewhere that for lots of people, patching has been unsuccessful.  Has anyone been actually able to succeessfully patch since when it first went up? It seems like after a bit of being available, either they took it down or borked it somehow.  Huh


I'm too chicken to try myself, but my daughter tried this afternoon (Pacific Time) and just got a 'file not found' message  for the manual (akamai.cdn.ea) patch.  The MTS Patch Downloader didn't seem to find it, either.

There are issues with EA servers.

The incremental updates will only work if you got all those little patches released between 1.22 and 1.24. If you missed one, the incremental patch will not work (RT Patch: Invalid File or File Missing error).

Very interesting, but our games are up to 1.22.9 and *now* the MTS Patch Downloader is finally seeing the 1.24.3 patch. Color me confused.

Thanks for the info, though.

I had the same problem and found this on NRaas' forum:

If you get "Invalid File Error" try getting the 650mb download as this seems to fix the problem for most people.

It worked for me.

Well I was wondering about this myself but since Town Life is officially due on the 26th and they assume nobody got their hands on it yet to report bugs I think it's safe to assume you need to install it before Town Life.

I downloaded the patch and I am running the test version of Awesomemod but when I brought the game up after installing the 1.24 patch the game refused to start until I removed Awesomemod. Has anyone else had this problem?

Yeah, you're not alone. For me it's the same. I'm running test version - 25th of July. Is there another dated version of AM?

Maybe the problem is that I'm running worldwide version (not english) of the game, that's why other people are OK with latest patch?!? What version of the game are you running??? English or Worldwide???

I belive we should pray for Pescado and some other test version of AM in nearest future...!!!

After the whole night of all possible thoughts and suggestions I finally found out where the problem is - NRaas Error Trap (last version - so we should wait for update).

These are fine - NRaas DebugEnabler/ Dresser/ MasterController/ PortraitPanel/ Relativity/ SecondImage.

AM test version is totally fine loading a newly patched game (1.24.3. - big 650 MB Update).
