#2357315 [Answered] Do I Have To Use the CD's To Install If I Buy the Disk Version...

Posted Kamatsu on 03 July 2015 - 07:56 AM

Yes you can - if you buy the physical copy, you can register the key on the GW2 site with a new account... then download the installer from there and install from that. The installer will then download all the files needed for the game.

Note - the game is approx 21 GB big (at least that is how big my GW2 directory is), so if you do choose to download it... make sure you have the data allowance to do so (if your on a data capped plan)

As far as we know they have no announcements so far.  If they announce one, i'll post it here.

With gamescom coming up, and Arenanet having a habit of announcing major things at Gamescom, they may be gearing for another reveal and a possible release date.

#2356988 First Gaming PC (Around 1500 Budget) - Let's Discuss - Lots of Things To...

Posted Quaker on 20 June 2015 - 01:49 PM

There's no particular advantage to having WiFi built in, as opposed to using a separate card. So it comes down to convenience and price.

Of course, using a wired connection would be better than wireless, but that comes down to convenience also. :)

Note, btw - it may be tempting to get a more expensive 802.11ac adapter, but the ac speeds will only affect transfer between computers (if they both have ac). Your internet won't go beyond 802.11 g/n speeds, so a basic $30 b/g/n adapter will do nicely.

P.S. I've been thinking about the GTX-970, but I have to say that the new AMD R9 Fury X looks very tempting, even though it would be major overkill for me.

Prepurchasing anything is a bad move in the gaming world, perhaps even outside of it too. You don't actually know what you're getting.

They are selling the game and the expansion in one, that's alright for me. Fair enough. What is ridiculous is expecting me to be OK with "losing" the account I get with purchasing the expansion because my existing account with override the one I'm getting with the expansion? If I was getting another account, that was separate to the expansion I'd be OK with it. But £32 for a expansion that looks more like a living world story bundle makes me laugh. Oh and there's no character slot either, of course.

#2356388 Revenant: Compassion as a Way of Life

Ventari was neither medic nor doctor.  The manner by which he promoted peace was his own pacifism and encouraging others to be pacifists, though he recognized the human race as being one "not capable of anything but war".  When he was asked to help in the fight against the White Mantle, he refused to take either side.  If instead he had acted in accordance with how he is portrayed as a revenant legend, he would have gone out and either subdued the White Mantle enemies himself or provided healing and protective assistance to those who would subdue the White Mantle, assuming that the Shining Blade are even those with whom he would have aligned himself.

I agree, but I think there is a loop hole you might want to consider; Ventari isn't the one fighting. As a revenant I'll be the one in the driver's seat, and I'll be using Ventari's power as I see fit, not as he would have used it. As for him not willingly aligning himself with some warmongering norn, well...it has been made abundantly clear that not all legends WANT to be channeled at all, so it is entirely possible that V's power is being used against his will. Heck, I'll personally be very disappointed if the old sage doesn't at least voice some regret when I take him into battle, and ideally he'll have some choice words for me regarding my liberal use of a warhammer and "HULK SMASH!" method of diplomacy.

And yes, it is confirmed that each legend WILL talk to the player, and voice their own opinions regarding what the player is doing and how they feel about being summoned.

And finally, most importantly of all, the use of Ventari's Tablet in combat is a tremendous insult to the Sylvari. The tablet is the source of their guidance and preaches peace and harmony, and its casual use in combat by any revenant is pretty much the same thing as someone using a bible to chuck at someone's head.

#2356007 Seeking graphics card advice

Posted Arkham Creed on 21 May 2015 - 06:32 PM

Well the first of my practical tests just wrapped up. In a heavily populated DR map at 1080p (my monitor have a freak out when I go lower) and on med-high settings my minimum FPS is 29, with the peak at 64.

This was using 8Gb RAM, the AMD FX 6300 processor, and the AMD R7 250 2Gb GPU.

Glad to hear it. Are you happy with your performance on the new PC?

I am indeed. My monitor is forcing me to play at 1080p (it has a little freak out whenever I try to adjust down to 720p when I'm on fullscreen mode), but so far so good. I tend to get about 29fps min, 64 max in populated areas on mid to high settings, and even got about a 10fps boost to my average after updating my drivers. It's like a whole new game now.

#2356004 Full install file transfer?

Posted Arkham Creed on 21 May 2015 - 06:28 PM

Well I am very happy to report that transferring the .dat file worked like a charm. With my crappy internet it could take days to download this game, but copying over the files took less than a half hour total. It needed to download something like half a megabyte patch once it was done and I was in the game. Awesome.

#2355968 Lion’s Arch Construction Nears Completion; New Player Poll Announced

Posted Alexei Hart on 20 May 2015 - 10:32 AM

It is a nice idea and I was happy to participate, but some of the naming options are troubling. "King Doric's Court" in a city that takes pride in it's independence from the throne? Sure, Doric had a summer home there, but his line still rules in DR and LA is independent. From a political standpoint, naming the central area of the city after him would send the wrong message to the citizens.

Are you seriously asking for credentials on the internet?

Well I believe you of course. I myself am a member of a federal law enforcement agency working in their cyber terrorism branch. And that is absolutely true and you should totally believe me. I am in no way just saying that in a pathetic attempt to add credibility to an otherwise questionable post.
