Got sent away to work in the canadian syberia, I brought my gaming computer with me, but left the external hard drive at home.
My ddo addiction got the best of me, went out and bought aircard, well i found out that DDo was installed on my external HD< sitting at home > but there was a unpatched install of DDo in one of my hard drives, so I patched it , and everything seemed fine, booted up and went to putin username and password ... and got the bad username error. got my brother to log in to my account on his computer and everything is fine. but on my newly patched computer I the user name and pass does not work , and all the links community, account , support and the lost password , links all go to cogaccounts.codemasters.com when it should be turbine/accounts or something like that!

Does anyone have a clue what might be going on?

Thanks

If the links are going to Codemasters, you have the EU version of the game installed.

LOL, guess it was something medicinal. Well at least you saw a copy out there I think it is a good way to get others playing, you know they are bored it is not too expensive and get 10 day free trial they like it and play for along time. Only problem is that after the initial download off of disc the patching will be crazy!!!!

Boy, you really must have screwed up. What ya do sleep with the bosses wife? J/K

Stop don't install unpatched and go through patching that's a friggin nightmare I made that mistake once it too like 3 days to complete patching and I had to intervene constantly...Download the latests client from here

http://www.ddo.com/index.php?page_id=77&siid=30

Then it will only need the latest patch or 2 and you will be golden and running in a hour or so rather than days.

:( shoot i downloaded the client last night , would have thought it would have taken much longer.
I wonder if i can just rape the codemaster version for the files that patched or am i going to screw up this installation.
Cant hurt to try right?

I also live here in Canadian Siberia. Of course, I was born here, giving me a +4 insight bonus into Canadian technical issues (as well as a +6 environmental bonus on hockey checks and a +2 to saves vs. beer).

I have had a similar issue downloading from the website. I clicked on the 'International' button, however Turbine has Canada lumped in with the US for servers, support, accounts, etc, which is a good thing as it would be really hard to get a group going in the evening with the Europeans.

Yeah where abouts are ya ?
Im in a place they should call little newfie land!
Im really interested in seeing if the game is going to be playable on a air card !
If it works , i think i might bet a ups backup and a 1000w inverter and see if i can do pop runs while ripping down ice roads at 90km/hr :D
6502 out of 8900, lol just when its done its prob time to go check a rig

From the sounds of it you are up north, probably near Fort Mac, a newfie home away from home if there ever was one.

Isn't camp life great? It has been a while for me, but I remember it well.

On the bright side, there isn't much (legal) to spend your money on in camp, so when you finally go home you go home in style.

Where were you before you went there?

Edited to say just looked at your location, I live in Calgary too. Lots of snow here today, you aren't missing much.

Canadians....bleh thought there were only 1 of you, but guess not.
Yeah, hands are good, worst part was not playing for nearly 2 months while was going therapy after each surgery.
So far both hands only ache in the cold weather, so just staying outta cold for now.

Don't feel bad, i spent 6k for this pc and only use it for ddo so far in the 2 years since i have had it...bought it for gaming and only game i installed so far :o

Nope, just ddo and photoshop on this one.
So I was playing ddo, and i thought of something.. How many canadians does it take to help get you back into ddo...and i just had to come to this thread to see what the count was at so far.:p

Ya, so I had a similar issue, and all I did was do a search for ddo downloads, found the link to redownload the game, intalled and just entered my old account info. worked like a charm. And the air card works beautifully for me being an OTR driver and all.
