So they expect everyone to download tomorrow? No preload?

Smedley said that they have a pretty robust CDN set up and 25 servers staged. Sounds like they did some prep work, lets see if it's enough.

So I notice it is on Steam as well, think it might be faster to get it from there? They always seem to have stunning speeds.

Thank you, wolfstar. That was invaluable. The uninstaller sure didn't remove that giant chunk of gunk in my system.

I'll be running NC with Sturmgrenadier [SG] on Mattherson. I look forward to shooting at you Wolfstar! See you on the battlefield!

I'm getting it from Steam for ease of use. I usually download at 7.5 mb/sec but I also downloaded the same in the Planetside launcher. I'm not even sure it will download through Steam though.

There's been some speculation that Steam will only give you the SOE launcher. You may still need to get the files from one of SOE's CDN's.

Then again, that's neither been confirmed nor denied by SOE or Steam.

To anyone who’s getting the error 1001 I found a semi-solution. I had the beta installer that I originally downloaded sitting in my recycling bin. Taking it out and using the repair option made it so uninstalling worked fine.

When a magrider with orange neons and the Alpha Squad camo pattern blasts you in the face, you'll know it was me.

Just happened to see that on the @planetside2 twitter feed this morning, figured it would help out.

I found a reddit list: http://www.reddit.com/r/ps2outfits/

I'm actually pretty pissed that I can't uninstall the game without hunting down random files and registery entries.

Im pretty sure the main installer will look for Beta files first

Getting a Steam Error ATM. I will give it 10 min.

Or with Steam, clik click click click

Edit: Never mind. Yay!

Whoa, Steam. Forever hoped, never promised, always welcome.

You rock! Thanks! Downloading now!

Restart Steam. It worked for me and many others.

It's a 9GB Steam CDN download, so SOE was smart about staging the entire thing it with them (instead of just the launcher).

Yay Steam DL at 7.5 MB/sec weeeeeeeeeee!

I'm showing 6837MB through the launcher, and it's coming in quite nicely.

Downloading through Steam at 18.0 MB/S. Looking forward to putting some time in.

Hopefully going home for lunch to start the dl on this. Played a small amount of the beta and had some fun while being totally lost.

Did Quantum Dawn indicate when they would start looking for us newbies?

Through the power of VPN on my Android I am installing from work

I was getting an error (No Subscription) and restarted steam worked for me.

Couldn't you have done that through the Steam app on Android?

EDIT: Weird, if you go to PS2 in the app, it says you need a flash plugin.

Just drove a sunderer into an NC base and ran over ~15 people before they blew me up

The lack of shooty shooty and surplus of game error 15 frustrates me.

Well you'll be happy to know I experienced a nearly doubling of framerate with the launch over the beta, so once the shooty shooty works, the shooty shooty is VERY GOOD.

So...this is a pretty epic skim because I've only read the OP.

This definitely looks like something I want to try so I'm going to fire it up when I get home.

Is there a Goodjer guild or server or whatnot? Is the info for the Quantum Dawn still relevent?

Basically, I have no desire to wander around this game solo so if there is a group of ya'll hook me up and let me tag along
