Aion Error E02018

Recommended Posts

or EO2018

If you're getting this error while downloading the game, send a ticket to Support here https://support.aiononline.com/.

This is a very common error where your launcher gets stuck trying to download a file that it just can't download. Sometimes (usually) it can be easily bypassed by downloading the file directly.

 

 

This is the entire game. I update it periodically:

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BykLPkSQSO45TWFieXRYWWk2NGc

Steps:

1. Identify which file folder you need to download. Example here:

t0f1k7M.png

2. Go to the Google Drive link and download the file you need.

3. Go to your Aion folder (default path C:\Program Files (x86)\NCSOFT\Aion )

4. Rename the broken file folder to have .old after it (example: Sounds.old)

5. Extract the zip file to your Aion folder (NOT THE $PATCH$/ZIP FOLDER)

6. Open the launcher and try downloading again.

7. When game is downloaded completely, click "File Repair" on the launcher. The files from the Google Drive are going to be out of date, and File Repair should get the most recent version of them.

 

If this doesn't work, you're going to have to wait for NCsoft to push a fix.

 

 

I am no longer watching over this thread, so I cannot respond to inquiries.

Thank you, and happy Aion'ing!

Ok if you have connection which doesnt allow p2p connection, try to find a VPN for JUST downloading patches (those words for ppl who stays in student dorms) E02018 is most ppl's nightmare errorcode and it appears when you have some connection/firewall issues which doesnt let to use your connection properly for ncsoft. there was a some solutions like direct adding ncsoft's address to HOSTS in system32 thingie or VPNS. But if you re not in student dorms, just send a ticket with ncsoft game advisor results and they will help to fix your problem. If u re in, as i said. Use a VPN for only patchs (close vpn and restart launcher after patching completed) its still risky cause VPN can give you already blacklisted IP and that leads to account restriction so use VPN in most desperate times. (Dont ask me what am i write. i will edit this later when i am fully awake)

Good morning, everybody!

Download this file (it's the PC2 folder): https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BykLPkSQSO45NVBFcko5eUN3OG8

Extract it to the Aion/objects folder. Not the $Patch$ folder!

If you do not have an objects folder in your main Aion folder, go ahead and create one.

Example pic showing PC2 in the Aion/objects folder:

If you're still having any problems, post back here! I'll be checking on this thread throughout the day.

thank you, cheesecake. I would use try this fix if this was still my problem... I tried the Updater once more today, and instead of getting stuck on /objects   issue, my updater was acting like a 9 stage installer...everything seemed to be fine, almost 90 percent done and i get another error.   only this one is E02013  and it is a sounds issue...

Are you running out of space on your hard drive (<100GB)? I can't find any info on that particular error.

Once again, thank you, cheescake. Yes, it seems I had not noticed my useless file hoarding. I did a little clean up and ran Updater and am currently able to log in to game...  thank you once again.

Hi Cheesecake!!

I recently had to uninstall the game and I am now currently reinstalling it. I keep coming up with this error and now it won't let me continue:

I really hope you could help me out :(

I think you need this file: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BykLPkSQSO45R3NzWGVnWmVvcXc

Extract it to the Aion main folder, not $Patch$ or Zip or any other folder, and then try running the launcher again. :)

Hi cheesecake!

Thank you so much for replying! :) So, I just unzip the file in Aion main folder and let the client patch again or should I file repair? Thanks! <3

Let it patch again, and it should be all right! You might want to file repair after the game is downloaded, but the Sounds folder isn't mission critical the way something like L10N and data folders are. :)

I unzipped the file on the Aion folder like you told me :( It's still not let me go through. Well not exactly the same error, the last 2 digits of the file that is having a problem downloading changes time to time.

Are you downloading on WiFi or another unreliable connection? That can sometimes cause E02018 errors.

 

Edit:

Does your Aion folder also look something like this?

I'm actually wirelessly connected to my internet and I can't really connect it via a Ethernet cable cuz I would need a 10 feet cable and a drill to even get it up to my PC in my room. :(

Okay, you both are going to test something for me since this didn't get fixed last night. <3

 

This first one may not work, according to preliminary test results:

1. Download this: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BykLPkSQSO45SHVCYjRWZE95bkU

2. Extract the contents to Aion/Sounds/music folder.

3. Download this: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BykLPkSQSO45TERqR054eUczWjg

4. Extract the contents to the Aion folder itself.

5. Try running the launcher again. It might make you file repair.

 

 

If that doesn't work, try:

1. Download this: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BykLPkSQSO45R3NzWGVnWmVvcXc

2. Move your original Aion/Sounds folder to your desktop.

3. Extract the contents of the zip file to the Aion folder, so now you'll have a new Aion/Sounds.

Optional if you already did this before:

4. Download this: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BykLPkSQSO45TERqR054eUczWjg

5. Extract the contents to the Aion folder itself.

6. Try running the launcher again. It might make you file repair.

 

 

If either of those don't work, let me know, all right? I messaged Cyan again about it, but it's, like, 7am Saturday where he's at, lol.
