My pal is still in trouble,he's got back to me several times over the past week,and he's also asked in game forums but drawn a blank, so let me run the problem past Bleeping's finest to see if they've got any advice i can pass on to him, he's 81 years old and not PC-savvy.
Here's his problem- he bought the game 'Iron Front' and downloaded the 3 patches for it, then tried to install them. The first patch installed fine, but when he tried to install the second, it refused to install and this message came up-
"Update 1.62-1.64\DLL\TBB3MALLOC_BI.DLL.UPD cannot be applied.error xdelta3 returned error code 1. Patch file probably damaged. you may need to download it again. Error in file DLL\tbb4malloc_bi dll. phase 1"
So he downloaded the patch again from different sites, but it still wouldn't install and the message still comes up every time!
He also uninstalled and re-installed the game each time to get a fresh run at it but still no joy.
Everybody else installed the patches just fine, but for some reason his PC (Win XP) doesn't seem to like the second patch, or vice versa, and none of us can figger out why.
I even sent him a brandnew game disk but the problem occurs with that too, which means the disks are fine and the problem must lie with his system.
Is there any clue in the error message above?
One other message that comes up for him is this one, something about a "signature"; He told me-
