    Mine has finished, now to " Please wait until the next Beta test."

     

    If only I could put off the stuff I have to do this weekend to next week between phase 4 and early access.

    anyone else speed just drop to .11m MB/s happened soon as I hit 6 gigs downloaded

    Pre-release:
    -"Trion is the best publisher XL could have found for AA"
    -"AA will be different in the west, Trion won't mess it up"
    -"Trion's ArcheAge"
    -"Trion will make their own decision according to what's best for AA on the western market"
    -"Trion has total control, it will literally be a different game over here"

    Post-release:
    "People have to learn that it's not Trion's game and that there is little they can do".

    I had to restart the patcher and it sped up again. Picked up where it left off =-)

    I doubt they put in the entire game what with the whole data mine fiasco some time ago.  Though we'll likely find out once Legacy players get in and try to access higher level content (though I only heard of one new dungeon in this test, as most content past level 20 is locked).

     

    The last download was about 7GB and they added two new areas with this one (supposedly), so it's likely that they're just holding back.  It's said that chocobo companions aren't in the Open Beta.

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    huh? if you mean that you can resume downloading where you left off , yes you can. you will just notice the speed of your HHD in the begining up to the point where you have downloaded and then you see it will be connecting to download the rest

    Download finally done. I'm still torn between staying with legacy character on Balmung and finding a good Company to join. Or starting fresh and joining a Company. Such a tough choice and not much time left to decide either.  image

    In Peace - Vigilance.

    Does anyone know if they are wiping before release?

     

    A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

    Maybe. It just looked like it kept downloading from 0 every time, but it does seem to progress, ever so slowly...

    The problem is that, once it loses the connection, it gives me an error message and shuts down the client instead of shutting up and waiting until the connection shows up again. *grumble grumble*

    Why can't we just use peer-to-peer, I swear...

  • sothronsothron Columbus, GAPosts: 13Member
    I didn't get a chance to be in the previous beta but I do have the game pre ordered through Square's official e-store. Am I not going to be able to play in the open beta because they aren't giving out the codes until the 20th when the beta is over?

    If that be the case, where do we download the new one?

    Had that problem as well. Just uninstall and download the new client. It would appear that there are so many changes, that its just the way its going to be.

    Ugh...I go to log in and it gives me this message:

    I go to the recommended website and it won't send me any emails or anything to reset my password.  Anyone else having any issues like this?  I can't even log in to the beta forums to see if others are having this issue.  I can't start downloading until I am able to log in and Yes, I have the right password and ID and my Square Enix ID worked fine yesterday.

    P4 beta starts at 5am est 16thAug. If you missed registration then you'll have to wait until the 17th when it reopens.

    @Gatorez1913 The exact same thing just happened to me. The email was in my Spam folder, then I had to reset my password, and then try relogging.

    It seems to have worked fine as far as I can tell. I'm currently patching now.

    Their account security system definitely seems a little trigger happy. This happened to more than one person in my guild trying to download this update
