    Anno 1404 profile download failed

    So, I put my old profile from playing years ago into the profiles folder. Logged on and had my 240 out of 316 achievements! I was so happy to not have to start over. Was able to log in and do multiplayer earlier today. Now, when I go to get on DoD Venice it says download failed. Will not let me do a continuous game, load previously saved game or multiplayer. Please HELP!!! I really do not want to start over. I even have the old profile saved on flash drive, So I even deleted the one not working from profile folder and put the old on in again. Still says download failed. How did it work earlier just fine, but not now?

    Same thing happened to me. Except I was able to load my online from years ago by logging in, directly in game, under profile management. Everything was there, achievements, gems, unlocks, ect, played just fine for a day. Tried to launch the game today. "Download failed" Nothing i do will work. Even tried installing on a different machine. This time when I try to log in, it says, No additional profiles found. I submitted a ticket in hopes there is a solution.

    Hey folks,
    we're aware that some of you are having that issue right now, that the download or creating of a profile can fail for some users.
    We've been investigating this but i haven't gotten any more info yet from our tech-teams. I'll keep you posted.

    Another workaround that we've found works for some players can be found here under "Login or Profile Problems": https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfil.../?id=733691577
    (Thanks to dP.Candyflip for the link)

    I have to correct myself here. Just had a long talk with CS and Tech. The fix we implemented was for a different issue that shares the same error message with what some of you folks experience. The known variant only occurs if your online profile is damaged, which is not the case this time, as far as we can tell.
    We're still looking into it, and sorry for the confusion.
