How to Fix the TFMR0004 error in The Finals
1. Restart the Game
One of the most common and easy ways to fix the ‘TFMR0004’ error is restarting The Finals. If you encounter this error, quit the game, wait for 20-30 minutes, and start the game again. This will let the game’s servers catch up again and load your stats back.
If the game still shows the error, repeat this process one or two more times. It seems to be working for some players.
2. Verify Integrity of Game Files
As the error is primarily focused on stats reset and progress deletion, verifying the integrity of the game files might help. So, in case restarting the game a couple of times did not work out, try these steps:
- First, locate The Finals in your Steam library and right-click on the game.
- Now, select Properties and go to the Installed Files section in the left sidebar.
- Finally, click the Verify integrity of the game files button in the right pane.
3. Additional Things to Try
In case restarting the game and the file integrity check did not fix the error, we suggest reinstalling the game. So, even if you are encountering the error in Xbox or PS5, and the game restart method does not work out, try reinstalling the game. This might clear any existing errors including the “TFMR0004” error from the game.
Moreover, contact Embark Studios’ official support if the problem persists even after you’ve tried all the methods above. As a temporary error that is exclusive to some players, developers might fix it in a hotfix or patch. We will update you if a hotfix is rolled out, so bookmark this page for more info.
