YOU must uninstall the Beta version

Post by stumbuck » 23 Feb 2011, 12:16

Not sure if you guys are aware yet, but you must uninstall the beta version.

Then re-download the retail version. They are not patching the beta for the head start release (Although I'm sure I read that they were going too)

Here is the link to start the process all over again.

At this point in time you CAN'T download the game just the launcher, will be a few more hours till you can download the full program.

Man their traffic must be HUGE atm. when i started the download about 1 hr ago i was pulling about 800k a sec which isnt too bad considering I live in a country area and the copper lines were laid when Adam was a boy.

Now 350 is all im getting. Glad head start has not started yet

It shall be finished before friday morn. thats all i care about
