Network connection error (Code -1)

Post by steveshaw » Sat Jul 09, 2016 9:49 am

I have just found out that there is a new version of Field of Glory on the Mac with two new expansion packs that I am eagerly awaiting. I started FoG (version 1.8.1) on my MacBook Pro with retina display (OS - OsX 10.11.5) and selected "Check for Updates" on the assumption that this would be the best route to obtain the new game and access to expansion packs.

Unfortunately the result of checking for updates was to get a message back "Sorry could not Check for Updates. Reason: Network connection error (Code -1).

I have tried for a couple of days, always with the same result. During this period I was successfully accessing the internet for other web sites. I have owned the game since 2012 and have successfully used the check for updates facility in England and Spain. The only difference this time is that I am currently in Denmark.

Questions:
1. Is Check for Updates the correct path for upgrading to the new game?
2. Have you any known problems with this checking facility?
3. Have you any advice as to how I should proceed with overcoming this problem? I am very keen to play the new game and expansions.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have included the full error details below:

I'm a PC user so I don't know the exact info for Mac but I get the same error message with the old version. Since that version isn't supported anymore and the two new DLC only works with the new version the new version isn't an update but a seperate download. You can find more info in the following post:
