Rift head start info

Most important: uninstall the beta client and download the head stry client.

Jeff, I know you ordered through Steam as well...You can download the client already. The key you have to apply to your account is along the right hand side under CD key. I am hoping that the CE key is enough to ensure me Headstart...I was able to DL the new client so I think it should be okay.

So I uninstalled Rift beta and then installed Rift live. Then I realized that all of my old beta files were still in their directory. I guess only the patcher was uninstalled and not the client. Did any of you guys notice this? If I try and uninstall Rift now, only the "live" version gets uninstalled.

Edit: Apparently I'm not the only one that noticed it. Some people manually removed the directory and some just left it as is. I'm going to manually remove the files, since Trion stated that all the old beta files must be removed.

I uninstalled the patcher and removed the actual game files manually. Downloaded the new patcher from Steam and now I just have the wait for them to prep the game files for download. Forums say they should be up later this evening.

Yeah, you have to delete the 7 gig folder manually. Make sure to run a registry cleaner afterwards to clean up loose stuff. I'm pretty happy with Wise Registry Cleaner - they have a free version.

*grumble* looks like I need to uninstall the beta again.
