    Hey someone,

    I have this problem.

    If I start the launcher of drakensang it will automatacly say this:

    ''ShaderServerBase: Failed to open shader package file 'httpnz://drasaonline-481.level3.bpcdn.net/cdndata/export_Win32/shaders/shaders_sm30'!''

    (Click the word under here for photo)

    If you could help me, please! I want to play this game!

    You mean this one? DSO patches live up to expectations all the time. They rush to release something, can't bother to test for bugs or errors, then patch it a day or two later with more bugs and errors.

    That's the one.

    Tried re-installing with no success, just the same message. Client acts like it's loading, but very slow, and not with same progression bar as usual.

    I just started getting this error since logging in today too. Haven't seen any suggestion on a fix yet.

    Right click on "Drakensang online" app. Go to properties
    Add: After the line "C:\Program Files (x86)\Drakensang Online\thinclient.exe" -stable
    Start up client.. Let it download and update.. don't log in
    Exit app

    Go back to app, go to properties.. get rid of the '-stable'
    Log back in as usual

    Works for me

    If you are using client try what booger73 says
    But it is faster to go at TS with your browser and follow these instructions https://board-en.drakensang.com/threads/download-critical-file-error.72965/page-2

    Excellent approach. I prefer it to the browser one but maybe because I'm comfortable with command line arguments. :D
    I was getting a bit panicky I won't be able to login tonight. :rolleyes: Addiction, sweet addiction, you're driving me crazy.

    *begins ranting about Bigpoint's professionalism cause I really can't take this anymore*
    Oh my freaking lord Bigpoint, EDIT?! You can't even make a hotfix without breaking something? Let alone... erm... the game setup?! I'm sorry but I don't know what your release procedure covers... but it's definitely not testing the freaking setup kit! One of the most elementary tests you should perform prior to any hotfix.
    Dear lord... Even our junior developers know to perform this test on a dedicated environment before every go-live. Get your team to some freaking Devops trainings if common sense is not working, because such rookie mistakes are unacceptable. You're becoming less and less professional with every passing day.

    Why do these dev EDIT persist in ruining the game with continual goddamn updates that EDIT up my install and I have to redo all my setup with volume levels and hotkey assignments? Totally tired of this EDIT , luckily the prior mentioned fix worked for me, but had I not dug into this I'd lose my streak of several hundred days of logins which would infuriate me.

    Hello, I have tried the only solution that seem to work for lots of people to resolve there problem with the client:

    Right click on "Drakensang online" app. Go to properties
    Add: After the line "C:\Program Files (x86)\Drakensang Online\thinclient.exe" -stable
    Start up client.. Let it download and update.. don't log in
    Exit app

    Go back to app, go to properties.. get rid of the '-stable'
    Log back in as usual

    But everytime that I open the client. There is always that nebula error that open.

    is there someone that could help me with setting up the game, I am having issues and I read what some of you did, I am not that computer savvy yet and also I am dyslexic which makes it harder for me at times work my way around a computer. You can find me on Facebook or here...

    Peace LadyStarHawk

    Hello, i have the same problem and i'm not that technical ... and also a problem with the solution above.
    So my first question is, do i have to type '-stable' behind the line like this? "C:\Program Files (x86)\Drakensang Online\thinclient.exe" -stable
    But when i do that, i get an error that the path is incorrect. Or is '-stable' a term or a character.
    Sorry for my stupid question and thanks for any input.
    Thanks in advance.
