Download on demand is crap.

Major issues with the launcher since installing. Issue is a DEP issue that I am unable to fix. I have reinstalled, but am still having the same problem. Launcher will load only sometimes, after I have used the exe file to load the game. I guess I can use the exe file to run the game, and just reinstall the game every time there is an update, since I cannot get the updates through the launcher. THANKS FOR THE GREAT UPDATE....****.

Greetings!

I have installed the new DoD client.
The download and installation went all fine and swift.

I wanted to create a new character.


What I perceived, was that I had to wait for a single image ...
... where I can choose the race ...
... for around a minute, not much less.

I would guess that a new player would at first want to create a new character ...
... thus you would include this path of choice into the base installation.*

Because it sucks to wait, if you want to play a game.



I ask you to consider this.


Thanks!


* I really can't stress enough that a new player does not have any other choice ...
... so why isn't it in the base installation? Staring at a black screen isn't exactly a thrilling experience ...

By players - yes.

By Devs - no. It's way past the obligatory 3-day cut-off for Dev attention.

So is anyone else still having issues with this? It would be nice to see one or two post for the devs saying they are looking into it even if they are not.............just saying. Also if anyone has the update be a boss and put it up somewhere and if ccp don't like it......sorry. Should prob be looking for better qa people.

Dear CCP Atropos,

DoD has significantly altered the Launcher and resource files relationship.
Moving/altering the Shared Cache path is clunky and untuitive. e.g. when copying the game to another PC or thumb drive.

1. You need to include a Pause or Cancel option to automatic launcher DLs until the Shared Cache path can be re-directed correctly.
Alternatively, pop out a re-direct msg for the Shared Cache if it doesn't detect it in the default location. Without this IT idiots will re-download (and waste your bandwidth), when all they had to do was a simple re-direct.

2. Launcher Offline mode needs to have the Settings option enabled to allow reconfiguration.
Why on earth was this disabled/overlooked? It makes no sense.

3. Manual path change in settings.yaml for the Shared Cache does not give the desired effect. It looks like the lastest settings are cached somewhere by the Launcher and only loaded & modified on request.
Therefore, the only way to enforce a valid change of Shared Cache path is via the Launcher (isn't it wonderful!! yay!). This only serves to re-inforce point (1) and ( 2).

Not sure if this is going in the right area or not, as I'm not really sure what the problem is. I just recently returned from a deployment and attempted to update and log in. The launcher went through what appeared to be a normal update and once it was finished I tried to launch...nothing. After trying to reopen the launcher and launch several times I noticed that even though it wasn't launching the game it was still opening an exefile.exe in the background according to Task Manager. Eventually I checked the forums and found this thread after searching for problems launching. I've done just about everything I can think of to get the game to launch, but with no success. I've tried bypassing the launcher, unistalling and DLing the newest installer, allowing it to DL all resources, etc. It still starts the exefile.exe in the background, but no game. Is this an issue with the new DoD or is it something else? It's possible that this problem has already been addressed, but I only made it through 6 pages on this thread before deciding to just write and ask for assistance. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

This thread has all but been left to die, next addition to existing problems is due in a few hours, making this thread even less likely to receive any attention from devs..
I would suggest a support ticket and just wait, I believe support is pretty busy.
If you can capture logfiles while loading that show something you could submit a bug report.

Jut don't rely on any official help here.

Good luck, hope you sort it soon

My opinions are mine.

It really is getting harder and harder to justify $23 a month for each sub.
