This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Dear Bagpus.  I'm not sure if you are still having trouble downloading the program or not from the ftp site.  However if you are don't just dl the small auto_installer program.  Instead use an actuall FTP program like Flash or WS_ftp or any real FTP program and have it download the 700mb program.


See I had problems with that.  I got and installed the downloader.  It downloaded the entire 700 MB and then froze at the very end for 1/2 hour before I cancelled it.  I then just downloaded the full installer with no problem.

I tried using their auto-installer and let it go for about 5 mins with it trying to connect before my patience ran out.  Then fired up Flash FXP and just dl'd the 700mb install in probably a fraction of the time.  The rest was smooth sailing from there.

Well still haven't actually played it yet mind you but the install went cleanly.

Yeah I'm not very pleased so far.  The testing was supposed to open Wednesday at 10am (PST) so here I am Thursday morning and still not able to log in.  Well here's to hoping I can get signed in tonight when I get home from work.

Yeah just get an ftp program and download it straight.  So much easier.  Plus most ftp software will do resumes should something happen along the way.

Yeah that seems to be the case from what I was reading on the forums.  I hope that this is just a temporary situation and that they open it up 24/7 down (hopefully sooner then later).

I put about 3 hrs into it.  I can't say that I like it at all.  The graphics are very dated looking.  The game itself felt very flat.  I'm sure that as you get more and more into it, it may get better.  But the core drive around and shoot things never will change.  I can't see driving around and shooting things drawing $15 a month out of me.  Especially becasue the driving itself sucks and the shooting is uninspired.  

I can't even think of what to suggest to make it cool, without making it entirely different.  Better graphic scale, better controls, more to do in general.  I don't know.  I was reading on their forums and some people absolutely love it.  I am not one of them.
