How to fix FFXIV unable to complete version check 30605
Here are the troubleshooting methods you must follow to eliminate the problem completely.
- Restart your router or computer
- Verify the integrity of game files
- Edit some files
- Download the game again
Let’s take a closer look at these methods.
Restart your router or computer
The first solution is to restart your router or computer. This simple solution usually solves connection problems, and it doesn’t hurt to try. Switch off your router or computer, wait 30 seconds, and then switch it back on. This may restore your network connection and allow you to access the game.
Verify the integrity of game files
If the first fix doesn’t work, try verifying the game’s local files. This fix is specifically for the Steam version of FFXIV. Sometimes game files can become corrupted, but Steam has a way to fix this. Follow the steps below to verify your game cache:
- Find Final Fantasy XIV in your Steam library.
- Right-click and select ‘Properties‘.
- Go to the ‘Installed Files‘ tab.
- Select ‘Verify Integrity of Game Files.’
This will cause FFXIV to re-download any missing or damaged files. If the problem persists after verifying the cache, proceed to the next fix.
Edit some files
The third fix involves editing some files. You will need to locate your Final Fantasy folder and find a file called “ffxiv_boot.cfg“. Open the file with Notepad or a similar program, find “Boot Version Check Mode” (there should be a zero next to it), and change 0 to 1. Save the file and restart your FFXIV launcher. This fix works for most people and is relatively easy to do.
Download the game again
As a last resort, you can delete and redownload the game. This solution takes time as the game takes time to download and patch. However, if none of the above fixes work, this may be your only option. Before doing so, consider purchasing FFXIV Gil to make the process smoother.
Can I install FFXIV on two computers?
If you want to install FFXIV on two computers, you’ll be happy to know that it’s possible to do so with a single license or account. The Immerse Gamepack FFXIV edition app allows you to use your profile on up to five devices, which means you can play the game on multiple computers without having to purchase a separate license for each one.
Apart from all this, it’s worth noting that the app in question costs money. This means that it’s a third-party application, so you may experience some issues.
Don’t let the “FFXIV unable to complete version check 30605” error message frustrate you. Try these fixes in order, and you’ll probably be able to fix the problem and get back to playing the game. Remember, the fixes are designed to be easy to try and will not harm your game or system. Good luck, and happy gaming!
