Thanks for the reply.
I did the DL and it did nothing. I then turned off some of the options at the guidance of someone in game. That did noting. I then hit the best bandwith option, which cuts out all the high options and still I am getting the same lag. I did look at a player made film and guess what; I see the same thing happening to that person as does to me. It is a bit encouraging; but still a pain in the ass to be attacked by invisible stuff and not able to see them for several seconds. I guess last option is to try customer support.
Thanks for this post El. I'm downloading DAoC now to give it a try. I keep hearing such good things about it...
Might not be the correct thread to ask this, but I don't feel like making a new one over this small question.
I'm going to download the trial now and checking out the classes on some website I'd like to know if I'll be able to play a Vampiir (sounds very fun!) with this version.. as I understand it this class was introduced with an expansion?
Oh, and is there a download site that lets me resume the download after I get disconnected? For some reason my i-net connection is a bit unstable at the moment, and I really don't want to start over after being disconnected at 90%!
Thanks in advance.
I'm a newbie to DAoC and downloaded the trial from fileplanet the other day. When I installed it, the catacombs graphics update was already in with the trial.
Not sure if this was a recent change, but there seems to be no reason to download the graphics patch when you download the trial.

I considered playing the trial but then it asked for credit card number... I would not have a problem with this normally but there was no security verification that you get with most respectable internet commerce, and you are meant to write your number in a window that is just a popup from the game... I looked them up and found that security was a big problem just after launch. I havn't been able to find any other comments on this situation so bit of a worry.

To my knowledge there has never been a security issue with CC information in DAOC. The game engine is using secure socket layer (just like any website) for the CC information. Kunou can give you more detailed information but he doesn't typically respond to the stickied thread. I'd address your question in a seperate thread in the forum if you want an 'official' response from someone works at Mythic (Kunou is a Mythic rep.)

Originally posted by nikoliath The new engine seemingly DOES come with the latest trial download!

Elnator hopefully you can help me. I D/L the free trial put in my information name etc. But it is asking for a CD KEY? where do I get that from?
I have to leave soon and was hoping to try this out before i left. Anyhelp is much appreciated
Thank you in advance

Yes if you could get me an official response on the matter that would be great. There was a posting on the security issues taken shortly after launch but info was a little hazy and out of date. Other then that there is nothing I could find. Getting a respnse from Kunou would definitely settle the matter
Depending on where you downloaded the trial from here's a list of the CD-Keys for the Trial:

Anything that happened that far back was well before my time and I can't really comment on since I don't really know any more about it than you do... That being said I know the credit card info is secure at this point. I don't know exactly what you want me to say or do to prove that... But I do know I haven't heard of a single complaint about it since I've been here, and if it weren't secure I'd have to believe we wouldn't have nearly as many subscribers as we do...
Aaaah finally, i always wanted to test this baby out, however because i lack the usage of a credit card (or the parent's allowing me ) I wasn't able to do that.I'm Belgian so i sure hope I'm going to understand the Europian part Mumbo Jumbo
:edit: i see that the trial is already over on the europian site... tough luck
I decide who lives or who dies!
Euro players CAN use the US trial if they wish They will just have to connect to US servers and not the GOA Europe ones.
I'm currently trying out the Free Trial (and I'm enjoying myself very much). It seems to have updated graphics for everything other than the capital cities. Try going from Lough Derg (Mag Mell) into Tir na Nog, for example
Will installing the patch outlined in the OP add those textures?

No, it didn't.
Anyway, ordered the Epic Edition. It'll be here in a couple days.
I can appreciate the old graphics for what they are, they did a great job with them. The new graphics are excellent too!
No, nothing changed after installing the patch as outlined in your OP. It seems that the only graphics update not included in the trial is the one for the capital cities.
Originally posted by KamadrionExcuse me, but isn't there a way around the credit card? Because I simply don't have one. I just want to try the game....
