i was playing the game fine earlier today for with no troubles, when i went to continue playing again a few moments ago the launcher told me an update was available and asked if i would like to download it or not. I hit yes i would but the launcher immediately crashed. I attempted to run the launcher again but now it just crashes immediately. It does nothing now, double click icon - crash and repeat. I tried running the launcher as admin, same thing, double click icon - crash. Also attempted to run as Xp service pack 2, 3 and vista, same thing.
On a side note and completely different problem: When i was playing the game earlier i had your new Monk in the party however, everytime i rested he started spam initiating dialog with my player character, he would continue to spam no matter what i did and completly prevented resting i had to remove him from the party to continue playing. ( i tried reloading and resting he just started spamming again, went to new zones before resting and again he spammed me).
