mental lag

100%. Finally, the download was complete, and the installation of Age of Conan started, along with the infamous message “This might take a while”. So far so good, but having heard lots about the downloader corrupting some of the files, and lots of people having troubles with it, I was a bit pessimistic. It succeeded though, and I started the patcher.

Zap. Some file was missing. Thinking logical as always, I assumed that it was the downloader that had made some kind of error, and started checking the files. By looking at the official forums, I found out that it one of the smaller files wasn’t a correct size. So, I redownloaded it, and tried again. Same thing ended up happening, although the downloaded file matched that of my friend (being 2kb smaller). I looked up what the file could be and found out it was a part of Windows SP2 – which I had “forgotten” to install after I recently had to format my computer.

Thus, the wild hunt of updates, getting an accepted Windows Key (my previous was – according to the Windows tool – a volume license. Thank goodness for MSDNAA! So, in short, all I need now is to get SP2 down and running – and then get the patch, and be ready for the prestart opening tomorrow at around 7PM (edit: mental lag, it was 7, not 5).

  1. Yes, MSDNAA is the shit :D

    And I don't get why you all seem to get so many errors – I didn't see a single error, when downloading, installing or updating…

  2. Lucky bastard :)

    Then again, my error was – as concluded – nothing at all with the game client, but rather my lack of Windows “Updates”. That'll teach me!

  3. font color? blog content or? A small bit of elaboration would be nice (I have that severe type of mental lag called “hangovers” today).

    Nah, bought the pre-order “kit” via, which offered a chance to started playing the game a few days before everyone else. Very nice, although my computer is hitting the minimum requirements.. auch.

    The title-screen music is giving a nice atmosphere atleast.

  4. Contents > looks, period. Atleast it's not blue. :P

    Ah well, I was a bit too fast when I chose it, thinking it was black. It wasn't. Changed it to BLACK-black (yes, I'm colorblind).
