The updater does not update your client software - it downloads the game content. It is normal that this takes a while when you start TMW for the first time. But afterwards it should only download the list of content files needed for playing (resources2.txt) and then either finish when it realizes that it got everything on the list or download one or two smaller updates which got added since you started TMW for the last time.

Is this the behavior you are experiencing or does the updater download the complete game content again everytime you log in? In the latter case there might be a problem with your operating systems file permissions (further information required).

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.

Like Crush said, you already have the complete client. It's downloading the data. What operating system are you using, and are you using a special build of the client (ie not from our downloads page or a Linux distro repository).

I had this problem whenever I would move my data from the default folder it downloads in, so I just stopped moving it. Don't know if this might be the problem.
