Actually, even if you haven't entered your code(s) yet you WILL see the download link and it WILL download the launcher.

BUT... You have to log into the game to patch so... if no codes have been entered, you wont be able to patch.

This is great news...

If anyone can confirm that this will work even if you pre-ordered through Steam (I did so and added the appropriate codes to my Trion account info) that would be great.

Getting that too. But the button seems to link to the beta patcher. I never played beta on PC so I'm not surprised I can't log in. Replacing "beta" with "live" in the URL yielded a patcher with a higher version number that did let me log in and is downloading something.

No. I ordered through Trion and the link on my account page gave me a patcher that doesn't let me log in. I could only log in when I replaced the "beta" in the URL with "live".

I did not play the PC beta (only PS3 due to time constraints) so this would be as expected if they accidentally put up links to the beta patcher.

Kisala

Never said everyone could do it if they ordered thru trion. Only stated that everyone who posted success on alpha forums said they ordered thru trion and the ones who couldnt posted through other providers

I get the Error Still - my download was from the public/live/.... - Mine is a Preorder via Steam, so it makes sense that it's only working atm for Trion Preorder Purchases, since those are from the main source.

Yes, if you didn't get a chance to apply a code to your Trion account then I'd expect it doesn't let you log in.

Can you just update the beta client?

Or have to download their release client

And download the whole thing?

Let's hope Steam allows us to install it through them soon as well. Would prefer having it downloaded through there. (In case you're curious as to why, I prefer the Install/Uninstall system of Steam over a regular installer. Less pointless actions to go through. And well, a centralized list of my games.)

My steam keys for PREORDER_STEAM and Defiance Standard Edition was applied and shows in the transaction log. Guessing since i didn't preorder directly from Trion is why i get the error.

Good news if you have fast internets! Steam doesn't bog down for any game... too big to fall down. Its a fast download so I wont start worrying until its less than an hour till launch and I still cant download it. (Which isn't going to happen I am confident).

No, even non pre ordered accounts can download this client.

Unfortunately there is no announcement or visibility on what the client is for, however if non paying accounts have access to it, then either it really is the LIVE client and they're doing that as a courtesy for people who MAY consider buying the game. Or, it's all false.

Anyone can download the patcher/launcher.

We are talking about actually downloading the game content, which it will not let everyone do at the moment. If you open the thing you downloaded, then attempt to login, it will either accept it and start patching or it will tell you your account is not authorized/entitled. It seems as though all Steam orders are currently having this problem, but we are not sure if any other groups are affected. Someone said their order through GMG let them start patching, for example.

Which is what they are talking about..the download link - everyone has access to it and everyone can install it.
The problem is it's not live content, or it is live content available to everyone for the reason I suggested.

No, the problem has nothing to do with that. It does download the Live installer after they fixed the link(was installing the beta version). However, it does not actually install the game or anything else without logging in...
The people it is letting log in ARE downloading the live data.

I think you are confused here, the launcher that everyone can download does not actually do anything by itself. It has no content in it and letting anyone download it doesn't matter because if they do not have a Defiance account with a serial code on the account, it will not let them do anything but look at a login screen.

The post you originally quoted was saying that according to people in the Alpha forums, only people who ordered from Trion directly have been able to get the game to start downloading the client(which it appears is wrong, instead it looks like only Steam purchasers cannot download the client). The client is not the download link. That is the launcher. 13 Megabytes of data available to anyone for download that does nothing except download and install the game IF you have an account with a serial key registered.

Put another way... if someone has not purchased the game and downloads the launcher from the download link, then when they purchase the game they are going to have to still download the 12+ GB(the entire game) and let it patch/install on April 2nd. It doesn't give them a headstart.
If someone purchased the game and downloaded the launcher from the link(and did not purchase from Steam), logged into it and started patching and installing right now, then on April 2nd they could play immediately(or do any minor patches they may deploy right before release). They will not be downloading the 12+ GB the others could not.
If someone purchased from Steam, downloaded the launcher from the link, and then tried to login right now, it fails and tells them they are not entitled and treats them as if they have not purchased the game. Currently they do not get to preload the game, just like someone without a Defiance account/didn't purchase yet.

OK so bought (and entered codes) defiance on Tuesday through Steam, thanks to this thread I have just checked my Trion account and download is available. Unfortunately when I go to Steam there is no option for me to download Defiance, does anyone have any idea if this will change during the Easter weekend or is Steam determined to screw me over?

I suspect that will continue to be the case until you enter your product code (which you're probably not going to receive from the retailer you purchased from until launch).

I would think there going to stage the preload so not everybody is hammering the dl at the same time. Maybe I am wrong though and it will only let you patch once your trion account management page has recognized your product code. If thats the case digial orders will be able to dl along with anybody who got a reciept with a product registration code.

i will say this to all steam Defiance Players as i heard a community manager say, STEAM Defiance Players have to link their steam account to their trions account for you to be able to login on the launcher and download the game, unless this has been changed.

since your STEAM account is the only account that the game is on and your trion account does not yet have the information your STEAM account has of the game being there thats why you have to link them.

Actually, even if you haven't entered your code(s) yet you WILL see the download link and it WILL download the launcher.

BUT... You have to log into the game to patch so... if no codes have been entered, you wont be able to patch.

Nice, simple clarification. Hopefully people who get the 'not entitled' message on the patcher will understand why.

Gaming Geek
03-28-2013, 07:55 AM
I entered my steam code back when I put in the pre-order beta key. I can access and run the client from Trion's website.

It's normal for a MMO to do this. You won't be able to get into the Live Servers until Apr 2.
(edit) I did go through Trion help services to get into beta, so maybe they already linked my steam account...

Someone just posted this in another thread


I managed to talk directly to a support GM at Trionworlds.com about how some people are able to download and some are not. See the transcript below:

...
GM Nalvados: You are very welcome, how may I assist you today?

You: I downloaded the live client via Trionworlds.com for Defiance.

You: I can log in with my credentials to the launcher, but it tells me I am not authorized to play and will not preload the client files.

GM Nalvados: I can certainly understand how that can be frustrating. I will be more than happy to assist you with that! In order to do so, I'm going to need to collect some information from you.

May I please have the e-mail that is associated with the account you are having the issue with?

You: I have input both the preorder and Defiance standard codes I received from Steam and they both show up on my Trionworlds account.

You: [my email]

GM Nalvados: Great, thanks! Just a moment while I retrieve your account information.

GM Nalvados: I looked into this for you, and while you can download the patcher now, you will be unable to pre download until April 1st.

GM Nalvados: That's why you are receiving that error.

You: Okay. Good to know. So predownloading will begin on April 1.

You: Is that true for all users, or just for Steam preorder folks? There's a lot of confusion on the main forums.

You: Some individuals who purchased directly from Trion or even through g2play.com have been able to begin downloading the client files.

GM Nalvados: It should be for all orders, but some players are reporting that pre downloaded the game, and that shouldn't happen.

You: Gotcha. So it's just an error.

You: Thanks so much for your time!

Ease up on the panic it will work out. Its not like you will be evicted or killed if the release is missed or you cant jump on the second servers go live. Trion will get this going. This seems to be normal for most MMO releases.

I'd say that it might be an issue similar to the Xbox beta early download error. I personally wouldn't refrain from downloading now but if you have data limits or something that would penalize you for having to download again, I'd consider waiting.

Pre-ordered mine though GMG and today finally my Account Management show that I have the DDE registered to my account and I am downloading the 'live' client now.

My guess would be their system is slowly going though the database and finally assigning the pre-order codes to everyone's account.

Annoying the new client doesn't seem to recognise the 'WAD' files from beta/alpha, so it going to download them all again even thou im sure textures/sound files aren't going to change much from those versions to 'live' version. :).

I noticed the same thing today, the only things in there are the 122 or so arkfall codes I entered. I bought the standard edition directly form Trion and it is gone now :confused:

I was able to download and update with no problems using the download client so I am not too concerned about it

*edit looking at it again now shows the bits purchases I made during the beta with "defiance beta" and "all" shows all the arkfall codes entered, still the record (there yesterday) of the digital purchase of the standard edition is nowhere to be found

Anyone elses transaction history list go blank? used to have both the preorder and standard edition on there + all the ark codes I entered, now it's empty. Even the beta list from where I purchased stuff with the 4k bits they gave us is missing.

They fix mine this morning. Now I see it under Defiance PC transaction history. The ALL history is now ark hunter, and rift.


I pre ordered through steam, where do I get my keys at to apply on trion website?

If you miss it.. Slegde posted this today.


I have touched on this subject a few times but wanted to let everyone know that we will be unlocking the PC version of the game to allow you to pre-load before launch. We are aiming to start sending PC tokens out Friday evening through Monday evening.

I have seen this question a lot around the community, here is the answer you have all been looking for.

Q.) What is the Max EGO Cap at launch?

A.) Max EGO rating at launch is 5000.

I pre-ordered through steam, got the patcher from my Trion accounts page but it says "login succsesfull. Your account is not authroized to play Defiance. "

I have the right cd keys on my account page as well. Guess Steam players will have to wait.

You are one step ahead of me then, I haven't even recieved any key's from steam yet they do have my money .. :(

Look here for your keys. If it doesn't show up, contact steam support.

On your steam client, try logging out, and then log back in, and check your library, defiance, and on the right side should say cd key.

I did, the rep I spoke to said they were having trouble with the transaction history internally and it would all be worked out. No need to panic.

I contacted them bc I orderer from GMG and only got one code. The rep confirmed that I own the game and have preorder bonuses with that one code.

I also asked about preloading - and he said nothing official as of yet.

That said, I am downloading right now... :)

They kinda did this with Rifts. There was a pre-pre download. (Remember there was early access in Rifts, so it was pre to that). It was kinda random who got to download early or not, but they said it was an error then as well. (They being Trion support). It could be an unofficial way to alleviate some of the congestion. Who knows.

so i was one of the few who got the client when the OP made this thread, i downloaded it and it began to patch, downloaded the whole patch in 2.5hrs and then i closed it, just tried to fire up the client today to see if there was anymore patches, and the client auto-updated to a newer version and then gave me the "login successful. Your account is not authorized to play Defiance. " error when i tried to login again

client is version 1.449068

v.1.449730 isn't your client version. That's the version of your launcher/patcher.
For example fir Beta I have v.1.444792 for patcher but 447618 as client version.
the latest Alpha patcher also has v.1.44792 as launcher but a much more recent client version.

There is a bug I reported via the alpha tech section that if you access your trion account from the defiance game launcher link(ie Account link at the bottom left of the launch window), it causes a glitch that shows erroneous information to your account. If you reclick the manage account-game-defiance screen from you account page after you'd done that and then click the transaction history tab after that, it should revert to the correct information.

Alternatively you can just open up a normal web browser and access your account and see the correct information too(unless they're doing some maintenance then it goes wonky then hehe).
