just set your udate.dat to read only (youll have to enable write on it when the next patch is released though)

game.dll 193.252.123.33 10622 "username" "password"

make a bat file like that and place it in your daoc dir, then you will be sure to not patch to US, and i makes you log in without copy paste your pass etc every time or seclect server. Still need to select char ingame.

and when there come a regular patch just run the regular patcher once to get the new files :)

It might still send the PW to the server encrypted it just sends the PW to the dll through the bat instead of through the login screen. Anyway I dont really know how it works, but this doesnt mean it is sending your PW without encryption.

I wouldn't put my username and password in a cleartext file on my hard drive, it's just asking for trouble if you get hacked. Rather, put the following in a file you call something like launch.bat:

login.dll
exit /y

Run it everytime you wanna play and you will sidestep the patching process and proceed directly to the login window.

It's not the server part I'm worried about that much, but more of trojans adding low level software hooks to intercept program/dll/etc execution, as there's no way to deny such actions in Windows (or atleast I haven't found it in the myriad of tweaking programs I've used/am using).

Why don't you just make a copy of your update.dat file. Copy as update.bak for something, and incase you start to download us files just rename the .bak to dat again. I've been doing this about <input very long time here> now, and I havn't had any problems with this.

Aye...as guildie said. Some idiot from Mythic hardcoded the stuff into the .exe file. If you can't reach the EU server, it will try the US or something. Thats the reason it will start to DL the patch. GOA could change this, but since its Mythic's game....GOA is not allowed to change it.

Its something different thou with event and such...mostly just ingame actions of course.

find the user dat file in the SI directory

replace the contents with

Mythic Patch
193.252.123.21:1280/updates/english/isles/mpatch.dat
193.252.123.21:1280/updates/english/isles/mpatch.dat


You don't need to reinstall the game as the right patch will just replace the USA one
