GameGuard Error 0000017c: Failed to connect to the GameGuard update server. FIX!
This can also be see on

Ok so I am getting this error on Uncharted Waters Online

'GameGuard Error 0000017c: Failed to connect to the GameGuard update server.'

I found a way to FIX this

So this is what I did.

Step 1. went to my D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\GV Online Eg
folder and renamed my GameGuard folder to GameGuard.orig to keep the original
files.

Step 2. I copied the files from the Netmarble install (full version) which I
did earlier I copied the GameGuard folder from there
D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\GV Online Eg
to D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\GV Online Eg
Please note that your paths may be different on your computer and
that you will have to change this.

Step 3. Launch the game via Steam and success the game started
with NO game guard error!

I am currently running Uncharted Waters Online version 3.013/3.004
I would not do this patch on any other version other than this one.

This does work I did it and it works great if you installed this game
via steam. I will get rid of that nasty error.

I have uploaded a copy of my WORKING game guard folder to the following locations

copy the game guard folder to replace your own game guard folder (make a back up beforehand) in UWO folder (GV Online Eg)

Fix worked for me. Although, for some reason Steam had a hard time getting connected afterwards. Seems okay, now.

Hey, does this fix work for patch 3.015?

D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\GV Online Eg
to D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\GV Online Eg

I cant see a difference between those two paths? What am I missing?
