    It is beginning to look as if nothing meaningful will happen until September 18th. It would be good to obtain a pre download and avoid overloaded server issues but if necessary work is being carried out in the interim to make the game as bug free as possible I think that it's better to be patient.

    As long as i can play a bug free version by the 18th, i will be happy.

    @kingcrowley There is no such thing as "bug free" in software, we can just hope the bugs are few and far between :)

    Agreed.... with the extra time we have to wait i am sure it will be worth it.

    Boy, I'm sure glad I preloaded before they delayed the game!

    How could you preload, I don't think they ever had it available to preload.

    I think that it's now safe to say that the preload date was unrealistic. More significant issues have been in the offing and it would have been helpful if we had been told what was going on at an earlier stage. That being said if it means getting a better product I am (just about) happy to wait for two and a half months. Perhaps we could be told whether there will be a prelaod prior to the new release date?

    Probably there won't be no emails before it's the 22nd and working hours started in Edmonton, Canada, where Beamdog is located. It's called Mountain time (MST), lagging 7 hours behind GMT. Try the math for your own timezone or use Google as your friend :-).

    I don't expect the mail to arrive before 9:00+7+1 (GMT+1 timezone)= 17:00 in the afternoon here in Holland. In Asia/Australia it will be an even longer wait I guess.

    I've downloaded the installer client but it's coming up with a server error. Looks like beamdog site and servers are getting slammed
  • axellsladeaxellslade Member Posts: 47
    Yeah I'm trying to download the standalone Installer but all I get is a 107 bytes file and "Server problems" error.
  • FishFish Member Posts: 38
    Got the installer downloaded after a couple hours of 503 server errors. Can't get the download going though (server errors on authentication.) It looks like the servers are slammed.

    My official installer don't work.... ¿now download on torrent? WTF! I hope beamdog fixed soon this problem. I paid for a service that works properly. ¿When a new patch out will also have to download it torrent again? LOL...

    I was actually hoping for a torrent feed. I will download it now and keep on seeding until release day.
  • MortesMortes Member Posts: 45
    @fumy1903 Just to clarify this. Both the dedicated BGEE client as well as the official Beamdog client are nothing else but customised torrent downloaders. The file I linked in my post is the very same file those programs use as well.

    The difference when doing it the way I described it is that you use a client software you prefer (which likely is a bit more reliable). In addition you have the option to configure the client the way you might need it as some ISPs are known to throttle or block traffic/ports that are used for file sharing and this way you'd be able to avoid it.

    All right downloading right now at my full connection speed.

    @Mortes
    much obliged for the torrent link! it worked as smooth as you'd like.
  • MortesMortes Member Posts: 45
    Btw. please consider to keep the torrent up for seeding for some time after you hit 100%. This should help to increase the overall bandwidth. There currently seem to be too many clients at 0% in comparison to the few that managed to get the files fully or partially downloaded.
