Most of us will have discs by then..bu the d/l option is only useful to those who also have a code anyway -

Its simply going to be those of us whose disc has not arrived that suffer

All installed, patched and waiting here. The patch was a bitch to download, it kept getting connection errors and then had to start from scratch again. Good thing I was on a 35Mb connection :D


I had super quick ping times on 2142!

From a little googling it looks like it installs fresh into non-beta folder names as expected. You can uninstall the Beta and get the room back. If you got it via steam you cannot remove it from the "list" but you can still uninstall to free up the space.

It's worth getting a couple of GB back and the beta doesn't connect anymore so no point keeping it around.

The EA Download Manager that was installed with the Beta is apparently v5 but v6 is the most current and probably included with the retail DVD. Some are saying that the beta has been around for a while before it went to pre-orders as v6 of EADM has been around for a long time.

Hope that helps.

Interesting watching the official EA BC2 twitters and forum... they have indeed had to create an instant client update patch (as they expected). What they are doing now is rolling out dedicated server updates to all the hosting companies. It looks like this is what they'll do to tackle bugs in future too... they've tried to fix things server side whenever possible.

DICE obviously have a lot more control and direct access to dedicated servers than they did with 2142. Probably why they've also locked down most of the configuration files including PB.

Let the dust settle and then we'll get our own server(s).

:)

Ignorance here ..do you mean that I should keep the beta installed until I get the DVD game up and running to preserve my game name from the beta... or...it doesnt matter and my game name will be reserved for me cos i played the beta so i can go ahead and remove the beta game now and just log in with me EA account to claim me original game name ? :unsure:

@Te... you do not have to keep the beta installed. I have uninstalled mine via the control panel. Your soldier name is attached to your EA account.
