Can anybody help me out with this one? My launcher recognizes that there's a .dat file there after copying; however it launches into the "Repairing data archive" window and acts as if it isn't there upon completion. The .dat file is still in the game folder after all this happens. A thorough Google search states on most accounts that copying the .dat file into the game folder once it starts downloading the client should be enough. Am I missing something?

Do you still have to original, functional, .dat saved somewhere? It is possible your copy got corrupted somewhere along the way. This can happen with improper use of a USB, such as using extending cables or just having too many devices plugged into the port cluster. Its a power issue; if the USB port you used (assuming you used one) wasn't getting enough juice, or if you were sending the data too far away for the signal to hold up, you could have lost some bits and the .dat would be useless.

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.

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.

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.

Copy the.dat file to a USB stick.
Start the download for GW2 on the new desktop, wait until the new .dat file starts forming, quit the download and copy the .dat file from the USB stick to the correct map and replace the new .dat file, launch the game and start playing. Atleast that worked for me. :cool:

Fantastic. But how do I know when the new .dat file is "forming?"
