How To Fix "Failed To Download Resource Files Or Network Error"

There are a number of different fixes which may or may not work for you, depending on the underlying issues that prompt this error for you:

  • We say this a lot, but one of the first steps to take is to check whether there is an issue with the servers. You can check the official Twitter page @GenshinImpact, or check HoYoLab for updates. If there is a problem with the servers, then just wait for it to be resolved, then try again.
  • Alternatively, if you don't want to wait for the server to be fixed, consider setting up a VPN, and connect with a different server. This may circumvent the issue.
  • Of course, the issue may also be at your end. Some players have reported that switching to a different network can resolve the issue. So if you're on your home Wi-Fi for example, you might want to turn on a mobile hotspot and connect to that, then try again. If you dont' have an alternative network to join, try resetting your router, to see if this helps reset the network connection.
