FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions):
Q: When I try to login after patching it doesn't work!
A: Exit the game, start the game and on the patcher click Territory, and choose where you live. (US in this case).
Q:When I start the game, it shows a black screen.
A; That is because your computer does not meet the requirements to play the game. There are plenty of other MMORPG's out there that you can try, though.
Q: On fileplanet, it says that the game is the open beta client.
A: I know. The patcher will patch to the latest version of the game, though.
Q: How long did it take to download and patch this game?
A: For me, 2 hours to download, and 2 hours to patch. It took quite some time, but that time was worth it.
Q: I downloaded this game off firefox and it is not working properly.
A: Do NOT use firefox to download this game. It will be disfunctional if you do, Internet Explorer is always the way to go if you'd like to download games.
Q: I have a Mac, will this game work?
A: On the system requirements it didn't state firefox in it so I believe it does not. I do not have a mac on my part so I cannot confirm it.
Q: Do you still play?
A: No, I am currently searching for a next-gen MMO to play. Preferably with good graphics that run on the Unreal 3 Engine.
Q: The patcher stays at 30% or another number and it doesn't go up! It's been a long time.
A: There is a bug with the patcher, you must wait 2 hours for it to finish patching. The bug is that the % doesn't go up.
