    I just want to log in and play my game, but I can't because this friggin patch is taking forever. Can't they just trash this KR adventure as a failure already?

    Each of the KR patches has taken almost a half hour to APPLY on my client after the big download was complete. I have no idea why.

    I actually loaded that client by accident. I have since removed the link from my desktop.

    I've got it installed, kinda in hopes that one day it might actually work properly. I even added the 'bitter black' player made ui, because it stops crafting screwing up if you fail. But I still can't stock vendors in it, the freeform backpack is still unusable.

    I understand that it is difficult running the most complex multi-player game available. I just feel they picked the wrong direction when they started the KR venture. It is obviously a mistake and the game would be far better off if they invested their time in a new direction... like fixing flaws in the current 2d game.

    At this point, I keep it installed and download EVERY patch and try it...so I can say yes, I have tried it when I complain about everything I don't like about it, and give specific examples.

    :) Say Skylark, When ya'll talked about the KR patch taking too long. I was wondering when because I've played everyday this week and my client never downloaded a new patch. I was wondering whether ya'll use dial up or something I've got cable so any patches have downloaded fast for me. Did'nt take long at all when it patches that is.:)

    Tex,

    It isn't the DL that is long it is the APPLICATION of the patch following that takes an eternity, although the 800 MB KR patch a while back made me choke.

    It has taken a half hour after the DL is complete to apply each time they have had any significant KR patch. I have experienced the same thing on 6 Mb DSL and 7 Mb cable (ran the connections concurrent for a while, now just back to cable).

    :) Ok Skylark my bad I always thought it was connection related. Since I really have'nt had a decent patch for KR yet I'll keep waiting what version are ya'll on? I'm on 2.53.0.2
