So I downloaded the game yesterday (2/3/13) and ever since I've been getting an error with my launcher either A: displaying error code 8001:0001, or B, the login box is totally broken and just stuck on "loading." The game is completely downloaded. There are no answers on error code 8001 anywhere online. Am I missing something about the game going F2P? Is it because I'm just supposed to wait until tomorrow (2/5/13) for the game to even let me try to log in? I knew it wasn't supposed to go F2P until the 5th but it let me download the game and say "Play for Free" and "headstart" so I assumed it was going to let me in. So I guess my question is, am I really having errors, or do I just need to wait until tomorrow for the F2P clients to be like activated or whatever.
EDIT: Never mind I saw the note about updating the game. Forget I said anything.

Oh yeah, forgot that was about now. Tomorrow it seems, so gonna have a look at that sometime tomorrow I guess. =)
I rolled characters on the other two servers to try out voice, race, gender combos to see which I like best, and each time I started on the other servers I had to do the prologue. Since I am going to restart on Ascension Valley, I am going to have to do it again.
Even if they would allow you do unlock the hot bars to move skills around and configure movement it would be 10x better.
I still think the prologue is one of the best things they did with the localization of the game, and is a spectacular feature that other games should emulate.
"Hey, you're a newbie and all, but here's how powerful you will be pretty soon. You'll also be fighting giant ass monsters like this, and have some wicked cool looking abilities like these. What I'm trying to say is that you're going to be a badass, so get to leveling so you can be this awesome again."
It's spectacular. And it's only forced on the first character, you can skip it on all additional characters.
There is an easy way of skipping that prologue. Once you are in the prologue, log out to the character select screen, then log back with that character and it will ask you if you want to do the prologue or just start the game on the island. Now granted they should have done that from the beginning but you can still skip it by going through an extra step.
So it is now the 5th, anyone know around what time it's going to kick in?
Well, by the time of this post, it'll be the 5th all over Europe as well :P
God damn it!
We better get a content preview or something!
I mourn the loss of a man of true vision and talent. You were my idol, Mr. Giger.
You gave faces to my dreams and nightmares and sparked my imagination throughout my entire life. You will be missed.

I saw that earlier, makes me sad. Oh well, I'll just have to wait a few days more to give them my money. I'm totally OK with that.
