    You need to change settings in Vista... So you aint logged in as a " standard " user.. but as an Admin ..

    Download again ... and you are in :)

    I'm permanently logged in as Admin and still no joy :(

  11. I know you need to change some crazy shit with it, read it in the 1.89 patch notes. Check the herald or something for answers!

    how do u download again?:p
  14. Code:
    In order to make Dark Age of Camelot Vista compatible, all files that the game client generates are now written to a user directory. By default, each user on Vista is a Standard User and only has limited access control. A Standard User does not have permissions to write to common locations, such as the root directory of the game. Therefore, we have made a few changes to the way the game handles files it generates in order to make DAOC fully Vista compatible. The changes affect everyone, not just Vista users. Read on :
    Two or more folders will be created. One folder will be for storing files that the user can easily access such as screen shots and log files. The second is for storing user settings and character settings that do not require direct access by the user.
    Folder 1 - for screen shots and log files :
    Windows XP, Windows 98 and Windows 98 Second Edition :
    Documents and Settings\My Documents\Electronic Arts\Dark Age of Camelot
    Vista :
    Users\My Documents\Electronic Arts\Dark Age of Camelot
    Folder 2 - for user settings and character settings :
    Windows XP, Windows 98 and Windows 98 Second Edition :
    Documents and Settings\(User)\Application Data\Electronic Arts\Dark Age of Camelot\(DAoC Client)
    Vista :
    Users\(User)\AppData\Roaming\Electronic Arts\Dark Age of Camelot\(DAoC Client)
    The last bits "(DAoC Client)" are the names of the different clients :
    "LotM" = Labyrinth of the Minotaur
    "DR" = Darkness Rising
    "Catacombs" = Catacombs
    "TOA" = Trials of Atlantis
    For example, the folder of the Darkness Rising client is the following one :
    …\Electronic Arts\Dark Age of Camelot\DR
    No one should fear losing any user settings or individual character settings. The game will take care of copying all of the affected files to the new folder location.
    Files that will be automatically copied from the current location into the new folder :
    (character name)-(Server).ini
    (character name)-(Server).ign
    You must login as each character in order to have each character .ini and .ign copy to the new folder location.
    Note : The "Application Data" folder for XP and earlier, and the "AppData" folder for Vista, are hidden folders.
    When you navigate there, you will have to set your "display hidden files" under Folder Options in order to find it. (Go to C :\Documents and Settings\(whatever your user name is) - click "Tools" - click "Folder Options" - click the "View" tab - scroll until you see "Hidden files and folders" - click the radio button that says "Show hidden files and folders" - click "Apply" - click "OK.")
    Log files and screen shots will not be moved, but new versions will appear in the new folder as they are created.
    That should be ze info you're looking for.

    I'm a computer noob. I get the impression that I don't have to do anything extra - am I missing something? :twak:

    Version 1.88 : Here you go !

    The servers are now available and you can continue all your adventures if you updated your client during the downtime. If you did not update, it will take you about 10 minutes to download the new files. The test period was longer than expected because of the great quantity of new content that was implemented, but we did not run into any severe problems. Nevertheless, if you spot any issue, please report it to our customer support. We have found that some Windows Vista users still seem to be running into some problems. We are working on the issue and hope to have found a solution as soon as possible.

    Checked german forums (my mother tongue), they have exactly the same problem.
