I'm from india . This is my first post . Sorry for bother you.

 

 

We already getting game late by 4 to 8 days . Somewhere here in forums i read that After installing 7 discs , we need to download 5gb patch. I'm really worried about this because my net is very slow. It'll take me forever.

 

 

Can somebody confirm this is true or not ?

Yes this is true, which is very unfortunate for those with poor internet access.

On the bright side, at least it's not 10GB!
Sorry man :(

Yes. The patch is 5GB. Indians are getting screwed by every second. First of all the game got delayed. AGAIN! Second of all, we have to download a 5GB mandatory patch. DickStar games at their best.

For that you have to know what files are added. And then copy it from the other PC and paste it. It'll work that way.

wow this is sad :( why the faq didn't they just add in the 8th disk ? =/

Well why do you think? Because they had to start making the discs before they got finished developing, that's generally how day one patches work. You can't just magically wish a million discs into existence and have them teleported around the world before launch.

Development is never done until they stop supporting the game. They simply ran out of time with whatever they put in the patch, it's a choice between delay it another week or put it in a day one patch, the patch generally is going to upset people less.

Nah, there's no manual download. You can only download it through social club.

It's an anti-piracy thing. You only print the disks after you have a working, gold copy of the game. Sure, they'll start working on the release patch after that, but the game is still finished.

Well maybe someone who has already downloaded the 5GB update can upload it somewhere,and everyone who suffers from slow speeds will start downloading it from today,that way when it releases you wont have to wait.

Heh, no. That's they way it's always been though. They had a set release date for 14th, the game needs to be in stores all over the world by that time, which means they had to get a version out for production in time. Patches are an easy way to get the game out while still having time to fix things.

I doubt it. There's already a timer in the activation server that prevents the game from being played early. If someone were to crack the game the patch wouldn't matter anyways. Edited by Rickzu

Its some sort of protection. After installation you activate the game and download files required for play.

I think so.
