Purchasing AC2 after the 15 day trial
« on: May 01, 2004, 06:00:13 PM »
Okay, to purchase an Asheron's Call 2 CD key after the 15 day trial expires, go to http://www.fileplanet.com/promotions/asheronscall2/ and get it from there.  $12.95 US dollars gets you the CD key plus another month of the game.

Hmm, I already have the AC2 cd, obviously, but I want to get the 15 day trial cuz I have a problem with my credit card that needs to be worked out (and must get a new one), so I can't subscribe just yet (but want to play).  How is this possible, if it is?

Not sure - There may be a way to do it, but if you look at the FAQ on the free trial download page  ( http://ac2.turbinegames.com/index.php?page_id=172 ) It says this:

Quote
I already have an AC2 CD. Do I have to download that big Setup in order to use the Free Trial offer?

You can avoid it, but to keep things simple, we do not officially support any other option. AC2 fan sites may be just the place to look for clever workarounds.


So, apparently, there's some way to do it, but it's not officially supported.

Shizer.  This is problematic.  Perhaps I will just sign up, and then cancel, and sign up again when my credit card is proper, hehe.

That would work.  Clearly you can cancel for long periods of time and get your characters back.  (Kailef and Ariynne and all of those guys are still there for me)

Wahya used to have a level 41 (I think) character that is gone, but he thinks that accounts that weren't active during the server merge got deleted.  So, odds are that Shayxpere isn't there anymore, but still - You could start, play, cancel, and restart without a problem I suspect.

Yah, Shayxpere got kinda messed up in the end... don't know if you saw his pink self..  I'd like to start a newb with everyone else anyway, hehe.  It's only a matter of time until I'm back up struggling at level 36!

How the heck are you supposed to register for AC2 now that it's not on microsoft?  When I installed it directed me to microsoft which is no longer available.

*blinks*  Billing seems to still be through Microsoft.  I just went step-by-step through the process, but I had an existing account.  Ask BigKahuna, as he just set up a completely new account - I'm sure he can verbalize what he did.

Oh, nevermind, I finally figured it out, after much trouble!!  But it's worth it.  I forgot how much I missed this game...  and I missed how much I loved this game! LOL

I also miss my level 46 melee defender....

During installation and setup, it asked me to create a .NET passport, which I could do right from the installation program.  BigKahuna was taken, so I got BgKahuna.

There are a few known issues in the installation process, but they're fully documented.  If you have any problems, let me know and I'll walk you through it.  8)

When you buy the full copy of AC2, do you have to pay up the monthly fee straight up or can you use the trial on that too?
