1.1 Download question


Recommended Posts

Thanks ED for all your hard work

 

I have a few questions about the 1.1 download

 

1- Is it a pay to download or a pay to activate ?

 

2- Will we be able to stop and resume the download, for example people on dial up may have to reconnect for some reason.

 

thanks in advance

The impression that I got from the website is that it is logged to your account with them. Once you pay for the upgrade, you get the link and the serial number. I believe those stay with you account so make sure that you have a secure password for your account. I used Flashget as my download manager and got the whole patch in about 8 minutes (high speed) but at the same time, if I got disconnected then it will automatically pick up where it left off and generate a complete file upon download.

 

So in answer to your first question, Pay to download AND activate. You have to pay first, then you get access to both the download and the activation key.

I have another question. I have 2 PCs. And, I would very much like to go against my brother on LAN. SO, can we use the same installer of the game (and the same Activation key) on 2 different PCs? Wouldn't it give an error like CD key match error?? 'cause if it doesn't work, I think it would prove tooo costly. :(

Chance favours the prepared mind...

that is the reason for download managers, they were designed for slower internet connections that were prone to dropouts. If you are still skeptical then you should just go to simhq and buy the CD from them.
