Dreadnought Launcher - "HTTP client transport failure"

Dreadnought Launcher - "HTTP Client Transport Failure"


We are aware of this issue and we are working to correct it. 



This error should not stop your launcher from completing the download. You should be able to finish the download by simply leaving it alone. Here are a few tips that can help you surpass the dreaded failure message. 

  • Leave the download alone without any strenuous programs running in the background. Eventually it will download everything even though it looks like it's stuck in a loop.


  • Close the launcher, disable any anti-virus protectors or firewalls temporarily as this may be interrupting the installation process, run the launcher as an administrator, and download the game.


  • You can also try changing the Max Download and Upload Speed on the settings of your launcher by clicking the gear icon. We have found success by changing the "Unlimited" speed to something else for both boxes. For example, you can use something like 4096 and 1024.
