    No, the data is referenced to the original seed. The original seed had no corrupted data so you'll be good.

    Question: how will future patches affect this client?

    Heh, that'd be nice of them but who knows. Just happy to help all of you out the best I can for now.

    This torrent represents basically a snapshot of how RIft looks right now. Going forward you'll simply launch riftlivepatch.exe and it'll take care of all future patches/updates to the content.

    I'm using uTorrent, and it checked all the files, and shows 75% complete download. Does that mean 25% of my 8.35g need re-downloaded and that's what it's doing?

    Yup. At the bottom of uTorrent you should have a 'Files' tab where you can look at the specific files and see what's completed and what's not.

    So because this torrent overwrites any missing/corrupted data files, riftlivepatch.exe will recognize it as the client that needs to be patched? (pardon my torrent ignorance).

    Nice, I see it all now. I wish I was getting more than 5 k/sec down though...

    Yep, exactly. After installing the torrent and when you launch riftlivepatch.exe it's going to check the files real quick and go "Oh! You haven't updated since 6pm PST Feb 24th!" and it'll just update anything that has changed since I created the torrent.

    Odd, well I'm seeding at 6 MB/s. I'm going to have throttle this soon. I've already seeded out 20GB of data and I'm paying $0.15/GB. So unless people want to donate I'm not gonna seed forever :P
