CotN->Alexandria Without Patch?

Postby John-SJ » Sat Sep 11, 2010 8:01 pm

I just re-downloaded CotN from Direct2Drive to install on a new hard drive. I'm thinking of upgrading to Alexandria, but I don't have any patch for the original game.

Can I install the D2D Alexandria directly over the D2D CotN?

Thanks!

Never mind. I just looked at my confirmation from D2D that I d/l'ed the game and there was a link to CotN Service page, which had a patch link.

I think the answer to that one would have been "yes", since they were both frm D2D. But you found out anyway.

Well, I ended up installing unpatched anyway. I tried to install the patch, only to find it was the wrong version.. And the link to the patch was provided by D2D. (sigh)

I'll see if anything weird happens, I guess.

Howdy again, John-SJ!

Long time no type! I hope you are well!

Anyhoo, Alexandria is not a patch. It is an XPac that will cost you more money to add.

The patch was probably to upgrade to the enhanced that I think you already have with your new download of the game recently. Could you build brickyards? If so, then you already have the enhanced v1/3/01.

You will have to do everything through D2D.

Good Luck! :)
