Stormpowered will not run

Post by Majick » Sun Nov 03, 2019 11:59 am

Hi,

In 2016 I bought Distant Guns, Jutland and all the expansions. Now they will not work. When I try to run any of the executables (DG_WWIp.exe, DG_RJWp.exe or SES_Form.exe) it tries to download an update which after a delay returns 'Update failed try again later'.

I don't want an update, I just want to play the game that I have bought. Is this game dead? If so I'm not impressed having spent a considerable amount of money on it.

Hi Majick!

I've moved this topic to the support forum.

The first thing you'll need to do is uninstall your games and then follow the link below to download the StormPowered client.

https://stormpowered.com/download.html

Once you have the client installed, log in with your email and password and then download and install your games from your games list.

I hope this helps!

.......And all of a sudden it doesn't work the next day. What is going on with this?

I've managed to get it to work by uninstalling Stormpowered and reinstalling it again. If I have to do that every day it will get pretty tiresome. Can't the DRM be sorted out on this so that we can use it without these issues? I doubt very much anyone would be interested in copying it after all these years...

Hi Majick,

I'm sorry to hear you're still having issues. By default the StormPowered client should run on system startup, so try looking in your system tray in the bottom right corner for the StormPowered icon and double click it to see if it will open the client window.

If this doesn't work, please follow the link below and open a support ticket so we can assist you further.

I think probably the issue was that I didn't know it was running on system startup. So I stopped it doing that and run it when I want to play the game, seems good. Thanks again :)
