Is it worth renaming my copied ToA folder to Catacombs?

After this how do I start up in ToA client instead of Catacombs, just go back to my original ToA folder?

This may sound a bit perfectionist/loserish but can anyone supply with the new Catacombs.exe icon or is that updated with the patch?

Lets have more smiles

Not sure about that one. I am still downloading though, and only see the 'part1' file so far, will be interesting to see if a 'part2' pops up?
Maybe some lucky git :D who has got it downloaded can shed some light over this?

Yeah well, I got them to respawn the download so I'll try again and see if I get a part 2 this time.

Very nice - and I have to say its a nice idea.

Just a bit of a pain its going to cost us an extra 5 uk pounds per copy. When you have 3 copies to get thats a lot of extra cash to pay.

Not GOA's fault

If you do get it this way for gods sake make sure you backup your download.

Well done GOA for helping in such a timely manner. Maybe they have learn't something from this and we will get our addon's this way from now on and as a result Mythic/GOA will make more money cutting out the crap distributers/retailers.

I will wait for mine to arrive from play as I have 3 copies ordered 15 pounds extra is a lot to find and I get a nice box ;)

I do think if it had not been for the fact that 3 people in this household play I would have downloaded.

If my calculations are correct, to get the full patch downloaded (doing it via goa not US) then in about 97hrs i will be able to get a cd key , IF i can borrow a credit card as i refus to use anything but switch personally :s

Damn i need broadband, shame my contract ending at work now so dont want the costs of setting up :(

aye is a bit of a pitty but the sad thing is the UK distributers just shot themselves in the foot with refusing to distribute when goa ask. This has probbly meant that all those distributers are going to end up with catacombs sitting in a warehouse because they cant shift them. Because the player base has totally bypassed them.

I got an option to download both parts seperatly or together.

I would just like to say that I have been a big crittic of the way GOA has gone about this whole thing, from the start I knew that releasing on this weekend was going to be problematic. However, I would like to thank Requiel for tirelessly keeping us informed throughout all this. It's always hard being the messanger when everyone is ready to shoot him. Requiel's reputation has certainly gone up in my book. :clap:

the dlgamer download will be hammered at the moment and the patch servers will be fairly free... that will change especially this evening (at which point you'll be better with the dlgamer site plus you'll not be crippling everyone trying to play ;))
