I download the original Client, purchased my key online, so I never bothered with a physical DVD install. After all this time, I just learned that the DVD comes with enhanced texture packs.

I just purchased VISTA and reloading everything, when it came time for DDO, I felt cheated since I can't find anywhere where to download the High Rez pack.

So, I pay for the game, pay to play, yet Turbine chose not to give those who pay online the same game as those who get the Physical DVD disc. I must be missing something here?

To be sure I was not directing you to something that did not work;
I Download the rar file (738MB) .

Unrared it is 1.4+ GB. It is the original Hi-Res packed file..

( I then removed client_highres.dat from C:\Program Files\Turbine\Dungeons & Dragons Online - Stormreach
folder ... something those who don't have this file will not have to do)

Inserted the downloaded client_highres.dat into
Drive letter:\Program Files\Turbine\Dungeons & Dragons Online - Stormreach

Started the game. the launcher then proceeded to check for items to update. It found the "new" client_highres.dat file and proceeded to update the packed files within (880 of them) this took about 15 mins.
so depending on your download speed it could be anywhere from 15-40 mins.

The newly update 1.68GB file is exactly the same as my old one, and a quick MD5 hash on the files show they match I proceeded to play with the new file in and it works as it should.. I deleted my "old" file.

So this file download will give those who do not have them, high Resolution textures

Anyone know if Turbine is ever going to offer a physical disk for purchase again? Part of the reason you can't escape WoW anymore is the fact everywhere you go you come across their 'demo' disks.

I'd far rather have physical disks in my hand to do the initial install than sit through the download again.

There are still D&D packages on the shelf at my local Fry's (well there were about 1 month ago) - so depends on where you live I guess.

Can't find the DVD in St. Louis. I've looked about. Funny how Wow is pushed, CoH is pushed... DDO is gone from sight. Atari is killing it.

If you want your own physical disk, you are off better to order it online cheep.
