What is a serialization error?

Hi all,
My mate got this error message today after downloading the patch. Any idea what it means?

It means that something broke during the download and he needs to verify the files?

EDIT: afaik, serialization means to convert an object into a string.

Huh that sucks. Thanks for the info!

Serialization the packing and unpacking of things you want to have.

Like when you buy a puppy on the web. The puppy goes into an envelope and the envelope goes into your mailbox. But if you open the envelope the stuff in there doesn’t add up to a puppy.

That’s a serialization error :slight_smile:

Lol that almost made sense
