Re: Aion - Tower of Eternity
Problem: I can't leave my computer on overnight.  And I also have to take it with me to other places.

****ing hell I should've been able to start playing tomorrow but **** no it won't be till hell if I know, next week??

Apparently it's too much to ask for to just be able to play a god damn game.  Of all the things in the world and it's something as mundane as being able to play a game that I have to have trouble with.

Nearly tore my hair out installing the damn thing (took me four days to download and install it in the end; had to restart twice).

The game also installs something called Pando Media Booster which noms through bandwidth. It's a pain in the ass.

I followed these steps to disable it, and now the game actually runs better.

Re: Aion - Tower of Eternity
Ah Pando. Indeed that thing has brought quite a lot of grief into the gaming world. Dunno why some still insist using it. In theory it should speed up the downloads, but I'm no so sure about practice.
Then again, I never noticed any major slowdowns with it... but I do think that it's most likely the culprit when something like that happens.

I wish you guys best of luck with the Launcher, I remember downloading some games (can't remember if it was Aion or L2) twice for some odd reason.
Habeeb it...

Darius, I'll keep that in mind once (if) this thing finishes downloading.  Thanks.

And thanks for wishing us downloaders luck :)

Re: Aion - Tower of Eternity
whoa.

I spent the better half of my day downloading this and even ran a risk by having my computer on and downloading this while I was at my university student group's end of semester game night (took the computer with me).  Unlike some people, the people here were cool and didn't go screwing with my stuff.  I wound up downloading it all but it did not auto install - I did not have enough disk space to do so.  I come home and free up a bunch of disk space by uninstalling a few games I don't care for anymore and start up the launcher...

...it said 'downloading 0.0MB out of 13420ish MB'

...I almost despaired, until it said "installing"

to celebrate, my Revoltech No. 084 VF-1J Valkyrie will now do a Captain Morganesque pose:

Re: Aion - Tower of Eternity
Well, finally got this working.  Started an Asmodian (sp?) char because I thought they looked cooler.  Come to find my first missions involve slaughtering some kind of farmer subspecies.  I don't have the stomach for Evil, so I'm waiting on the char to be deleted so i can try the other side.

Re: Aion - Tower of Eternity
I'll probably see what kind of trouble making another account gets me just so I can play in Elyos.

Currently I have a couple of Asmodean characters called Wtfmang and Sharonapple (I like Macross Plus - and it's a female character) but I'm hoping to see either "which side I like better" or which side has more people from here.

Re: Aion - Tower of Eternity
I was going to suggest that, there's like 6 servers you can make characters on.  Though I think one of them is RP. *shivers*
So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

There are only 10 types of people in the world , those that understand binary and those that don't.

Re: Aion - Tower of Eternity
Whats so bad about RP?  I mean... *is struck by the ratio of female characters to actual female players*  Ooooooh I get it.

Re: Aion - Tower of Eternity
I'll cop to playing 99% female characters, it's a flaw of mine, but I don't RP females. 

The shudder inducing part of RP is that, much like other more "adult" activities, I don't understand it or have much, if any, experience with it.

Re: Aion - Tower of Eternity
Apparently, it is not stated in the user agreement that I can only have one account (one place actually says "at least one").  Cool.  Too bad the name "wtfmang" violates it because it is "slang" (not like I care and I haven't gotten "caught".. :P).

RPing as female characters? :nono:
I'll play as female characters virtually shamelessly.  My cousin is the same way (actually worse about it, even supplying a reason that if you're going to stare at a character's ass all day long it might as well be a woman's :lol:).
In S4 League I have a legit reason for it - male and female characters actually play slightly differently in how they do certain things such as dodging which makes each gender better at various small (but very often useful) things.  Can't apply that reason here.  IMO simply playing a female character is no big deal.  But RPing one? :blah:

I'm hating the launcher - it will check for updates and get stuck, then complain to me about how it couldn't be bothered to connect to the server, so I click retry and it does it immediately - this happens almost every time.  Annoying.

Currently making an Elyos character, hate making up names.

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Can't put spaces in names... or numbers or special characters... or capital letters that are not the first letter (which is always capital)..
...

Already named characters.
