Actually if a computer lacks an installed game that another computer has, you still have to reinstall / patch the game on the new computer even if you've transferred the files. I've tried it before with GW2 and Skyrim, neither of which worked.
Really? I didn’t know! For my laptop it works but maybe it didn’t have to patch a lot or I just forgot, it’s almost 1 year ago after all. :)
So I got a new computer yesterday. Guess I’m retiring my main laptop now that I’ve got this setup. It’s got Windows 8.1, which I’m still trying to figure out, but hey, can’t have your cake and eat it too.
At least this is really quick about booting up Photoshop, and now I don’t have to worry about hard drive space and where to store all my files. That is, after I transfer the massive file collection over.
…So many files.
Anyway, I’m pretty excited. At least this system should be able to handle CAD and 3D modeling software better than my laptop did (i.e. not melting the motherboard and constantly overheating).
Anyway, with that, I’ve got a couple of questions for y’all following me here on my main blog.
• Does GW2 run on Windows 8.1?
• If so, how long does it take to do a full install and patch in with the latest updates?
I really want to get back in game as soon as possible, once I get more things set up/transferred onto this new computer and get that awful load of online class homework out of the way.
Also to anyone I might ever be doing things in-game with, sorry if I seem clumsier and slower than usual for a while after this. I’m still getting used to this keyboard with raised keys and F1-F4 keys being a bit further away. I was reliant on my flat-keyed laptop keyboard for the longest time and raised keys are still pretty awkward for me to use.
Can’t you just transfer your GW2 folder/files directly onto your new computer if you have it on your laptop? Then there’s no need to redownload the game + patches. :)
I made Apidae for my thief. :D Normally I never use p/p but well why show 1 when you can have 2? I would like to get the sword and dagger too, but need to find the fossils first. :(
I bought 1,000 potatoes and are sitting on them like a dragon to her hoard.
I wasn’t kidding.
Behold, the legendary treasure of potato
For 2 years I always gathered all potatoes, so I have like 2000 naturally just by stacking them. Everyone was always making fun of me ‘why do you take those they are useless!’ WHO’S LAUGHING NOW EH suddenly everyone wants them. xD
I am norn, hunter of the wild, born of the wild and rugged Shiverpeak mountains.
