    Since we had maintenance the other day, when I tried to update. Now I'm getting the error message Unable to download patch files. I tried everything I could think of. Nothing, I even reinstalled the game. Still anybody have any suggestions?

    No new suggestions but they're releasing a new patch tomorrow at 7 pm PST I think so maybe you'll be able to download that one and fix your issue.

    This is a very and i mean very old issue that they sweep under the rug when part of the issue is the launcher itself.
    You may need to use a VPN service, i know i have had this happen twice to me. First time i had to re-install ffxiv due to an update and i was unable to get back for like a month and a half trying to to find fixes myself and then a 2nd time when i upgraded to a PS4 Pro

    I know I am late.. but I had the same issue..
    the way i fixed this issue without a VPN was to change google DNS to

    8.8.8.8
    8.8.4.4

    No problems.

    I didn't want to pay for a VPN :p

    Glad it worked for you.
    Believe me i tried google and various dns servers :(
    I hope to gods they change the game launcher/updater for Stormblood is is so problematic and old tech.

    Changing your Google DNS Server numbers didn't work?

    I can look up the guide I used if you are still having an issue

    Yeah it did not.
    Basically the low down of all that had happened is one of the patches i would get a blank white screen from the launcher, proceeded to re-install the game and basically was a full month of no FF, having tried everything. The solution, while i could not pinpoint it was i used a static IP for my PS4, Port Forwarded, changed the MTU settings and finally i used a VPN (ExpressVu). A month or so afterwords same thing happened as i switched to a PS4 Pro, this time i knew what to do at least, lol
    I really really hope i have no issue come Stormblood
