I cant recover
I can not recover my thing onto the PTS it says "error 1012" help?
Downloaded for 3 hours. Can't for the life of me figure out how to run it now. Any suggestions?
Just downloaded the client again. Made a new folder, installed as administrator. Ran selfpatchalpha as administrator. Error #2016 every time. Uninstalled, tried again, nothing. Ran Live, logged in fine. Not an ISP or router issue. What's wrong?
in the file you put the launcher in, run "riftpatchalpha.exe"

I understand the whole not having them set to auto start, but don't they want us testing all the 1.5 stuff?

You log into the game on the shard you play on, not the test server. Then select "transfer" character, and at the bottom it will say "Copy to PTS"

Unfortunately, at the moment it indicates the playtest shard is currently closed to transfers.

Id like to know this also, yes i have my 2 50s copied over but would like my 3rd char (not 50 yet) to be able to test as well...any info would be great...also since this is my first non 50 there if you could let me know where abouts they are located when they are spawned.
thanks in advance
Issues going past play button
Ok, so I found the file and everything fine..but after I click play and the RIFT screen comes up it automatically closes and gives me an error. It doesn't even state which error it is or what the problem is. All it says is to send an error report, and I did multiple times. Still didn't work. Its copied into my Rift folder as well. I really need some help, any suggestions?
I am having the same problem. Running Windows XP.

Have you run the recover option and selfpatchalpha.exe? Try this and let me know if you have any success. Thanks!
Yes, recovery didn't work. I just ended up reinstalling the whole PTS client. I can get on it now but I don't see any gear vendors near the port in Sanctum.
