I have no idea what I am doing wrong here.Downloaded core,run as admin,sent to correct path,ran update,nothing changed still 5.77 version.This is driving me nuts.I try again.
Is this what you did?
run 580 exe.
after that runs updater window opens, navigate to where you unzipped may patch, install may patch file to correct directory, save and play.
It almost sound reading above that you didn't run the may patch right after the 580. I did this the first time and it still said 577. It was explained to me that the 580 updates the engine, the may patch is the content. The version number won't change until the may patch is installed. If you already installed this way, i have to no idea what wrong.
