    Default Downloading Retail Client

    Hey everyone, I know this question has been asked many times, and reading responses, they are mainly just directing people to the FAQ, I've read the FAQ, many other sites, but can't seem to clarify where, and when I download the Retail Client, I mean, I pre-ordered the CE, for the headstart stuff. The only problem is, on my account management, there doesn't seem to be a download, so I tried using the Rift Beta Client and see if it upgrades, but I get error 1016, I think that's just the client is inactive or something. I heard we download on the 24th, but the problem is, the game opens then, how do I get on at the midnight launch if it only opens on the 24th.

    Any help as to where I actually download this, and when will be much appreciated, please don't just direct me to another thread, I've read so many, I'd just appreciate a straight answer.

    Sorry if I've missed some really obvious answer and I'm just wasting your time.

    Same issue here. Saves me creating a thread.

    Thanks to not being able to use Steam, I have to download the client myself. This is going to be a pain in the butt as my monthly DL limit is 10gig (blame my location sigh).

    We need to start DLing this NOW before the head start.

    Havnt played yet and Im already frustrated with this game. Make me HAPPY!!!

    To download the beta client, you had to do it from the account page, but I don't see an option to download the retail version. I believe it takes roughly 2 weeks to print and ship the boxed versions once it goes gold, so my guess is that the option will be soon™. I'm hoping the beta build will be sufficient to patch to retail.

    http://update2.triongames.com/patche...cher_setup.exe is where you can download the beta patcher to download the beta version of the game. Again, you "should" be able to patch up to retail. I'm also assuming you can actually download the client still...

    Considering the start is just a jump away, they're leaving this late. Its a 7gig game as far as I know and many of us will need a few days to download it.

    Move yo monkey butts. Cant play if we cant download.

    If you download beta, does that mean you need to download the client as well?

    The beta client will not patch to the retail client, you have to DL a new client for headstart/release.

    And it's reasonable to assume there'll be a LOT more people trying to hit the servers for the retail than there were for the betas.

    Less than two days to go I'd have expected downloading to have started already, with perhaps a final small patch at the last moment, like Blizzard have done for years. I can see the servers coming on-line and few able to actually 'head start' at this rate.

    I posted previously ...... Trion has said there is a New Launcher and a New DL for the Retail version .... They will email us when it is setup on the server's and ready to go....... So if you have the Beta installed ....Uninstall it have a coffee amd wait ...

    I am sure they are aware of the DL siltation. As to that remember your DL speed is relevant to your ISP's routing to server. So one bad hop can cause your DL to craw or Fly ..... Example .. One day I can connect to a server in 12 hops another it can be 20 downloading the same content if either day my ISP has an issue I can crawl on a DL and not see lag in surfing. If you have Comcast 90% of the time it is there DNS server that slows things down. If you have Comcast and experience and issue were the 1-800 is not helpful Call 1-215-665-1700 ask to speak to an Executive assistant. They will help get to the bottom of your trouble's.

    Let's hope, for sanity's sake, that they only allow people eligible for Head-Start to download the retail client for the first few days.






    My guess is, after today's site update, the download will be available.
