We're hosting all the files on the mirror. They should all work fine.

The installer I downloaded from internode keeps returning this variable once it starts to install the files in whatever selected directory:
"Access is denied."

EDIT:

I found this error relates to their installer, you have to access cmd mode in vista (not sure if it's only 64bit or 32bit as well) run as administrator and install from cmd prompt than using any interface. It's a pain, obviously they haven't codded it to work properly with MS yet. You can find better instructions on the beta website, first sticky, second page.

COH online was a monumental failure for me i ran into so much trouble it almost sent me to the loony bin! i hope to god i dont have the same problems when the new one comes out!

How many patches are there!? I downloaded a 5mb one and that was fine, but now i'm on a 300mb one! :roll:


*Edit* I seem to have found them on the news, 5 apparently. Beware people, you'll have to wait a while for them!

1.47GB for the installer + 316MB + 740MB = 2.5GB

They haven't streamlined them yet unfortunately.

Seems we've run out already guys. I've asked for more but the allocation was low. See what we can do :)
