And it is GMT -7. But if you are in a zone with summer time you arent at GMT +0, you are at GMT -1. So it is GMT -8 for us.

So you crashed and lost data on an open and installing program and you blame the launcher....

Its called a computer.

Hopefully you have not listen to many in this forum. One told you to delete all the files ... if you had real dtat in the dat file you would have lost it all doing so. (start from 0% for real)

You need to make sure the GW2 exe in with the other files i can see that it now is. Dat  files.. well any file can read 20 Gb w/e as a place holder or bin for all the files that are SUPPOST to go in there . start up a torrent right now the file your d/l will show up as 700 mb or w/e even tho you have just started the d/l and only have 20 mb of it down.

This is how windows operating system works with many files.

I am sorry that your experincing this issue... All in all you probably need to d/l it all again it seems (make sure you don't have another copy of it some where you could have one in temp folders or really away id so a file search just incase.. as with this setup you could have 5 copies on one system w/o any issue).

All this being said this is the fastest and most effective launcher i have seen to date. Its stores pw and account name, tells you if you messed up your password before hiting play, is super fast and super responsive. But you ran into an issue , it might not have been user related btw, but if your computer crashes while d/l there is always a risk for corruption etc.

REmember same directory, admin, not read only.

Oh no no...you have no idea...none at all...lol. The GW2 BETA launcher is no where near some of the RELEASE launchers there have been in the past.

Run the .exe as administrator and let it run for a little bit.

Elikal, you're probably better off skipping this one simply because, after this thread, if you get downloaded and into the game in time, the responses to your upcoming "WORST Beta Ever! Completely laggy!" post will be epicly unforgiving.

I'm with the guy that said to take a portable hard drive to a college campus and DL it from their internet there.  I think it's your best shot of actually getting in.  Hopefully you still have access to a campus!

Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

You have all the files. Make sure you run GW2.exe from that directory in your screenshot.

He wanted to try the game, had a computer problem, came here and posted his frustrations and misdirected anger.  Does this deserve a reprimand?  Maybe.  Does it deserve 9 pages of constant insults?  I think not.

Hopefully he can find a way to get into the game.  For now, let's leave off making poor Elikal the scape goat of every problem we perceive with society.

Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

To busy playing GW2 to post much around here... *shrug*

5/14/12 12:38:29 PM#78

Since the OP hasn't posted here in a while, I'll assume he's playing the game, regardless of 'the worst launcher ever'.

Q: My file “repairs” itself every time I crash. What do I do?
A: If this happens, the most likely possibility is that your Gw2.dat file has somehow been corrupted, either while downloading an update or during the crash. Try re-downloading the Gw2.dat file (by moving or removing the existing file) and see if that fixes the issue. (This may take several hours.) If you’re still having problems, you may have hardware issues with your RAM or hard drive. There are a number of free programs, such as MemTest, to help you diagnose your system if this is the case.

 

Q: I moved the .exe to a folder and launched it, but immediately crashed. What’s wrong?
A: This could be caused by a number of issues, but here are a few things to check for:

  • Are you an administrator on your computer?
    You may need administrator privileges to run the client or properly access the folder in which your game client is located.
  • Is the folder that contains the game “Read Only”?
    The client needs to add files to the folder when it patches in order for it to run properly. If the “Read Only” box is checked when you access the properties of the folder, uncheck it and try again.
  • Is the Gw2.dat file “Read Only”?
    Once the executable file accesses our servers, it will begin to download a Gw2.dat file that contains the game’s content. If your computer sets this as a “Read Only” file, be sure to clear the flag in the Properties menu.

Considering that the event does not start for another 20 minutes...I'm going to call this assumption wrong :).
