I was thinking about giving this game a go, so how big is the trial download?
Also, are they still bringing out updates and/or expansions?
The file download is 19-20GB in size, it took me a day to download thanks to Stations "amazing" launcher. Recently the game got a patch/expansion which raised the cap to 55 and people are still working on getting through the content months on. They still reguraly patch and have server mantinence, the game is alive contrary to belief. You'll find no problem whatsoever on the trial island to get a group as numbers usually go into the hundreds, when you get to the main land you will see a dip in population between 10 and 50, I recommend going at this with a friend. Saying that I found a buddy in-game and got plenty of groups. Enjoy.
I think the trial download is about 3-4gig and the total DL is 20gig.
eq2 looks better if you got a good computer
Trial took me about two hrs to d/load. Hopefully the game will launch for you. I messed with it for about a half hour and uninstalled. All i could find in reference to the problem was vista and direct x 10 which didnt help me much running xp.
