    If your game has already been patched to one of the earlier patches, it should automatically download the latest one when you start the game.

    If your game isn't patched, you can get the latest patch from here:- http://static3.cdn.ubi.com/set...ettlers_6_v1.7.1.exe

    I downloaded the latest patch and it says i have version 1.7.4288 and when I went to play multiplayer, it said I had a different version than the other player, 3 times. Am I missing something or are they not updated?

    If you have version 1.7.4288, you only have patch 1.7, that patch removed the Tages copy protection, and also allows playing without the disc, but it also accidentally allowed the use of single player cheats to work in multiplayer games.

    Blue Byte quickly brought out patch 1.71 to fix this, so a fully up to date game will read as version 1.71.4289.

    You need to install patch 1.71.

    What version of the game do you have? the version number is displayed in the bottom right of the screen on the game options page, you should see it when you get past the opening video sequence.

    Have you tried deleting the S6Patch.ini from the THE SETTLERS - Rise of an Empire\base\bin folder? that may allow you to install the latest patch 1.71.
