(XML Error), go to steam dir>NWZLauncher.
If that doesn't work:
Copy+Paste your steam "AVA" folder into the "AeiraGames" "AVA" folder. Then run from Aeria Ignite. If your Ignite doesn't work, go back to your c: drive>AeiraGames>AVA Folder>NWZ Launcher.
If you don't have the NWZ Launcher:
Link1(required an account): http://www.speedyshare.com/M2z3K/NWZ-Launcher-Package.zip
Link2(does not required an account): http://ppl.ug/A8ePYpoFxAc/
(You have to download four files: NWZ launcher, patcher, selfpatcher, ava install.)
Easier if you just remove/re-download from aeiragames.com
If you want to stick with steam:
Uninstall the version of AVA that you have on steam>
Re-install AVA from steam store> Run AVA>
Close the game launcher and right-click AVA in your game library>Properties>
Click Local Files tab>Click verify integrity of game cache>wait for download to finish>start AVA>Launcher>Game Start.
I try to start AVA by clicking "PLAY" in Steam, and it looks like it's going to launch. I wait a bit and it doesn't do anything. I look in task manager to find the Reactor and it's open. Although Reactor is open it does not show anything and i cannot launch the game. After a while an error window pops up, "Failed to download XML file. Please launch the Reactor again.(4)"With so many issues with the game maybe aeria should think about offering the old game instead of skinning it with their **** and messing the whole game up. I've spent many many many many hours trying to figure this out and tried getting help from Aeria, but they just blow me off with random stuff like, "some application is messing with the game". I've never had this issue with IJJI's version...I need help so i can play the game i've spent so much money on in the past.
