Well I've already paid for early access and it's credited on my account, I just haven't gotten an email about it and don't see anything on my Funcom account page. 

I avoided using that cachefly.net link because I'm wary of non-official sources.

I did notice that my account Status says "Open: Log in and play the game" on my account page, so maybe they just extend my closed beta straight into retail.  I dont' know...

Looks like if you haven't gotten the early access and still want it you are out of luck. all sold out.

Son of a bitch! I forgot to register/purchase my early access account stuff.

When does the game itself technically go live anyway?

EDIT: For the hell of it, I just now punched in my preorder key (War Mammoth), and when I created a subscription, I was allowed to 'purchase' the $5 preorder fee thing. And it accepted it. Frankly, I don't know if it worked or not, but as far as I can tell, it did. I'll check my CC company tomorrow and see if it worked or not.

And so I don't keep just editing my post...

I got into the early release program. Maybe it was because I had Closed Beta access, I don't know. But I'm in.

"Welcome to the Age of Conan Early Access Program!
 
You've chosen to be among the select few who can venture into Hyboria to carve out your destiny and establish your name before the masses arrive."

EngineNo9 - under the Funcom page itself at register.ageofconan.com (once I logged in), I have a message to go to here:
http://funcom.cachefly.net/AoC-US-EarlyAccess.exe
to get into the early access thing. The link is valid, and it is what Funcom is giving to their playerbase.

According to the launcher it says the game goes live on the 17th for the early access people, and on the 20th for the masses.

The official link is really slow, too. I've been averaging only about 40KB/sec or so, with occasional (and rare) boosts upwards. As such, I have 4 days to go and counting.

Is this a torrent or a direct download?

Apparently, the downloader is a torrent. That explains my poor downloads (behind a heavily restrictive firewall). Visit the link I provided and it'll tell you how to run the program on a specific port (along with limiting your upload/download speeds).

Probably a dumb question but I pre-ordered, and registered and I haven't seen word one about early access? I downloaded the final client a few days ago on the 12th I think or when the link first showed up it's all updated and patched. But am I hosed? No early access for me? Or can I just log in on the 17th with my account info?

You paid the $5 once you put in your key for the Mammoth (or whatever your preorder bonus is), right? You should've gotten a 'create account' screen when you put in your key. From that screen, you would've been able to purchase the early access stuff.

And on a side note, FunCom's torrent program sucks ass. There's no way I should be getting this poor of a download with a torrent that should have a few thousand active people on it. I think the 50 peer limit is killing the overall connection.

Okay -that sucks royally!! I bought the CE PReorder and punched the key in at register.ageofconan.com as the small slip of paper with the key on said - but there was no option to buy early acces - actually, it said that it hadnt been released yet??

goddammit! that means 23rd of may?? thats just..wrong - or at least messed up! I was told in the store I WOULD get early acces, and it said so on the card as well...huh, guess they lied for some reason...great start

I'm sorry to hear that frown

You were supposed to get a key that you would enter when setting up early access - and you had to enter credit information so they could charge the 5$ for the 10 days and what not. Maybe you should try calling their support and see if they can help you out?

---

About the download torrent thing - I downloaded with 3.5 MB pr. second and had it in 1.5 hours. It didn't seem like torrent technology to me, but I could be wrong.

well, nothing like that happened..actually, I think I know what went wrong... the card said register at register.ageofconan.com and I did, on an old Anarchy online account...that could be the trouble - I actually did write them about it....8 days ago, and no answer yet...

I did punch in the key, and it said the ingame stuff was activated...and that was it...

bah, sorry for the harsh original post, but I'm quite disappointed with this bull :-(

I understand your reaction, and the process was a little confusing to me as well.

I don't remember exactly what I did, except that I entered the key I got from Coolshop.dk (you know it I'm sure) on the register site and I had the opportunity to "Buy Early Access" which required you to enter credit information.

After that, I waited for the download to be available and now I've got it installed and patched.

It's sad that they didn't make the process clearer - and I see several people with similar issues on the official forums.

Which register site, DArtagnan? It seems funcom's register sites have different databases, since, the account I used for open beta and the account I entered the pre-order stuff into are two different ones...and ONE works at register.ageoblalba and ONE works at betaregister.ageofconan.com....very, very strange...

Well sounds like I'm fooked proper (sorry finished watching Snatch) thats really great news, it's a death sentence for those of us who were going to the pvp server. No way I'm starting days after gankers have had time to level 20 or so levels ahead of me.

hmm, ok, must be because of my old Anarchy Online account there, that its borked somehow..for nothing shows up under products about Conan, even though I entered the pre-order code...

wow - I've never seen a forum thread explode like this...every minute, around 20 or so new posts are entered about the shutting down the EA..


http://forums.ageofconan.com/forumdisplay.php?f=2


EDIT: seems I'm not the only one with the old anarchy account problem...they really should have cleared this up beforehand - probably why they didnt answer my email either... Anyone have any experience with calling companies like this, and know if it does any good?

I put my key in on my old AO account and though I had to use a different subscription name it took fine and I got in the EA.  Not sure why everyone is having problems.

Still waiting on the official release of server names.  I'll be heading to an RP-PVP server, tentatively to Asgard since it's winning the vote, but it's also winning for EU so we'll have to wait and see.

Welcome to the Age of Conan Early Access Program!

You've chosen to be among the select few who can venture into Hyboria to carve out your destiny and establish your name before the masses arrive.

To start your journey you will first have to download and install the client available at https://register.ageofconan.com/ with your account: [edited by poster]

Once installed the client can be patched to the latest version from May 14th, so that you're fully prepared to start your journey.

The gates to Hyboria will open on May 17th.

Welcome to Hyboria!

Regards,
Funcom

For whatever reason, there's a bug with their registration system. You can NOT use your old AO user/pass to register Conan with. It just won't let you do so. That is what caused the confusion and such. There's also absolutely no mention anywhere that there was ever a limit to how many people they'd let in early.

I looked over the forum post - it's scary just how many complaints they're getting over this (or it's just the same poster - I don't know).

Finally - read the link I provided up top. The downloader is definitely a torrent. As of this moment, I'm finally getting 100KB+ a second, and have been sustaining that for a while now, but it's still FAR slower than torrents I've pulled before. I've actually capped out my download limit before by pulling the latest version of OpenOffice, so I know how well torrents can work. Blizzard's patch downloader used to be that efficient, too.

The email i got for making the pre-order through gamestop online was incredibly clear where to go to register...i had no misunderstanding from it what i needed to do...never even crossed my mind to use an old AO account when they have their own registration site...

All i can think of is maybe they weren't so clear with in store purchased pre-orders...i wouldn't know since i didn't do it that way.

Odd you're getting such a slow rate then.  Maybe it's on a non-standard port or something.  My system is in the DMZ and the early access download maxed my bandwidth after being up only a few minutes.

I used the manual port selection (in the link) to choose a port I know I have open for BitTorrent access. And I have all the router stuff configured properly for BitT use. I think the fact that I'm limited to only 50 peers is killing the transfer. Either those 50 people have great upload, or they don't. And I'm just not lucky.

Doesn't matter. It'll be done by the time Saturday rolls around.

Well my main beta character was 1 bubble from lvl 10 and entered night side and crashed. Since then I cannot log that one back in..just crashes when i try. ARGH. Had to make 2 noobies to play. Even though i picked hair they are both bald. sigh. Now the servers are down for 2 more hours i think for the shader 2.0 being broken. This is not something I will buy. It would be so damn cool if it was fixed / complete.

Well my main beta character was 1 bubble from lvl 10 and entered night side and crashed. Since then I cannot log that one back in..just crashes when i try. ARGH. Had to make 2 noobies to play. Even though i picked hair they are both bald. sigh. Now the servers are down for 2 more hours i think for the shader 2.0 being broken. This is not something I will buy. It would be so damn cool if it was fixed / complete.

It is listed in the known issues are the screen shown when logging in that new characters will not show hair or tattoo's.

It is a little scary that they can't keep their test servers up consistently and they keep introducing/re-introducing significant bugs in every build.

I don't see it that way.  The are not obliged to give testers a stable server.  They are treating it like a test server and probably deploying various branches of the code.  For anyone not familiar with versioning in software development, you don't always just iterate on 1 version number.  Sometimes you create splits and end up with a tree hierarchy of versions.  And then you have to figure out how to merge the tree.  I know FC does it this way too since a dev posted about it.
