    Anyone getting this or no a fix to it :(
    So I'm trying to just log in on the launcher, and I'm getting this error:

    Unable to Complete Version Check
    [30410][30607][20457][404]

    Halp? :(

    I got a similar combo of errors when trying to update the launcher. It relaunched again alright, but couldn't finish downloading it. Once I'm home I'll start all over again.

    So, you can't even get past the launcher, though?!

    Well, I was patching it earlier, them my entire system just shut off. I doubt it was entirely related to the patch(thou I guess it could have been), but everything else works fine, but being able to check the version of the launcher =[

    everyone that couldnt get in from the start plus everyone else that was already getting in are slamming the servers. Give SE some time they have to adjust things correctly to the new mass amount of people trying to get on today. give them time to get things going itll all go away im sure. there is probs stil lrestrictions and such they have out thus is why people are still getting errors.

    I just ended up doing a system restore to last night and it seems to have fix'd it. I thinking what happened is when my computer just randomly crashed, it wasn't finished patching, and I guess the system isn't capable of just finishing it or something. Oh well. it's patching now. I'll be on in a few ;)

    Update**

    System restore didn't help at all.

    Over at the official forums, there are quite a few people experiencing this error as well. So I figure eventually, people here will experience the same.

    The only thing that seems to have worked so far is a fix that is included in this thread:

    http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/...complete-version-check.-30410-30607-20457-409

    I recommend reading up until the end.

    Whatever you decide, be mindful as you're downloading stuff from an unknown source. I checked it and it seems legit and a clean file, and most uses are reporting Dark Bahamut's fix as a legit one.

    In my case, it rolled back to before the update, so it is updating again. But at least it's not crashing, like it was before. I'll know for sure in about 40 minutes.

    It is so impossible to hope for a simple solution when it comes to SE product. Thank goodness we have good community members that want to help out.

    I discovered something on accident while delving through the FFXIV folder. Particularly when you go into 'Game' folder instead of 'boot' folder, you may (or may not, in which case I can't help you) see a file called "ffxivgame.ver" AND "ffxivgame.bck".

    Now what I did was remove (read: NOT DELETE) the .ver file from the folder and renamed the .bck to .ver. Game started up fine.

    What I mentioned in my previous post worked, for what it's worth.

    I've read that apparently, a lot of people that get this error get it again when a patch happens. And they have to do it all over again. Hopefully not, but we'll see.
