I'm sorry but you lost me on this game. I downloaded the initial game when it first came out. Did a couple months of the GC and then just Barbarossa. Forums talked of patches to change some of the game mechanics and rather than learn bad habits I waited for the patch. The first patch was basically the game again 500mg download but a beta version. Tried to install it and then neither my original or the beta would run. Deleted both, reinstalled my original 1.0 purchase, tested it would load and run, and then sat back and waited for the patch. For quite awhile, but patiently.

Just downloaded the patch, approx 10mb, installed patch, ran the TOF application got a crc error saying reinstall my original game again. Which means downloading the 500mg file. Unfortunately I live in a rural area and my download limit is a problem. Also, why every time I try to get from 1.0 to the next version do I get prompted to reinstall the game. I purchased the game legally, I really liked the scale, concept, etc but this is too frustrating so I'm tossing in the towel. I wish the money had been well spent, but for me I am fed up trying to get the game installed and patched to the current 1.01.

Best of luck with your product.

Comsolut. I'm completely understood your problem. I'm living in the rural area too, and the only way to have internet connection here is to use mobile. Actually I have got three of them from two operators and one operator requires external antenna to run. The highest speed I'm able to catch is around 2 Mb, out of declared 40 and 100. My limits are under 100 GB totally. No chance to get the cable in the predicted future.

I'm, not able to say what is the problem with your installation. For me it run just fine. Did you tried to ticket it on the support?

From what I have read lots of folks is burning CDs or storing the installments on the backup hardware. (I'm not saying this is your fault, just hinting to save future frustration)

Sorry for all the inconvenience you have got with the game, but some of those things are beyond me.

Why is this called an updated version of the public beta? Actually what this is being called in some threads is of no interest to me, I want to install an official patch announced as the official patch. Would be nice to start playing the game we bought last year...I won't do this with just another beta thingy. So what's up with this unofficial updated beta/official final patch mess?

Sorry for the delay guys. It is entirely our fault. We are understaffed and have had various issues to deal with including a bereavement, snow storms preventing people getting to work and more. We are slowly getting back up to full speed and expect to get a range of updates out in the coming couple of weeks including this one. We're also in the process of recruiting. We just wanted a few additional days of testing before we called this the final release. If no issues are found, this will be the same as teh final release.
