    Suggestion: Download Rift from the website on your computer directly.

    =((((((((((


    My internet download rate is sooo slow. Is there any other folder that I must to get from mu fiend's PC??

    Well, he just downloaded it, not really installed. But when I click at Rift icon, the launcher comes in and I need to press "Update". It will download a patch ~20 Mb, then another, and other.... Is that right? I think the launcher is trying to download the game, not just update it. Am i right, or not!? I'm confuded! AHaHahhaha

    Run the rift download and point the installation to the exact folder you copied it to. It should scan and see all the data and install/patch what you are missing (mostly registry keys)

    or run the install to the point of when it is starting to download, cancel it then copy all the data into the folder that was created by the install program

    When you run the downloaded install application it should ask where do you want to install Rift

    However it might be easier to just let it install and start patching then cancel

    I believe it installs it to something like c:\Trion\Rift

    Then copy your friends folder over, just make sure it all goes into the right folder

    All else fails, start patching before going to bed

    Ohh, and I noticed that my launcher version is STABLE-203-3-C-821189. I don't know if this is the last version or not...

    Don't try to launch the game using Rift.exe.
    You need to use riftpatchlive.exe.
