So I still have my Beta client installed, when the game launches will I still be able to just upgrade and use it in live? or do i have to redownload the whole thing again?

You have to uninstall the beta client before trying to install the real game.

nope you have to use your pre purchase code or buy the game on release day and download the new client

Really? Are you 100% positive of that? Because I'm installing the actual game with the beta still installed.

Nope, you'll need to re-download the whole thing again.

No, this is the same in most games

They are both on my PC - different folders so no conflict that I can see.

I suppose I could have deleted the beta but I just pre-loaded the game and saw no issues - other than waiting another 3 days <sigh>

The beta files are separate from the live game. There is no reason to keep the beta because it will not patch to retail.

I feel your pain. The only difference being mines only going to take another 14 hours.

Well as you can see, both Broken Drum and I have them both installed with no issues.

Well, that sucks, but thank you all for your quick answers! just wanted to know if I could avoid re-downloading another 10gigs

Well yes, you can avoid downloading it again.....but that would require a physical copy of the game, a bucket of chicken blood, and some unsavory rituals...

Keep you entertained while the game installs off the disk.

Something to do until the game goes live.

Actually it's to turn back time so you could acquire a physical copy rather than the digital copy

Still...it's dangerous....I wouldn't recommend actually using the rituals. You could paint your neighbor's house with the chicken blood instead. How's that for an April Fool's prank?

Dog's blood works better. Just sayin'

Yeah but killing the neighbor's dog to get the blood kinda takes it a little too far....with the chicken blood you still have the chicken that you can make something tasty out of in apology

Heh.. I'm on vacation that week, but planning on sneaking back in to zip tie a friends office door closed that day. /innocence

You may at least be able to sell the dog meat to the local Chinese joint and break even on the whole deal.

Korean.

I'd rather grill the chicken. I won't eat something that I know licks it's own nads. :p

Should totally add a recording of some females whispering or making.. noises.. and put it on loop, so when he can't get in, he busts down the door, only to find no one in there.

But you'll let it lick your face? inconsistent man.
