Just downloaded the trial and it is impossible to get running. Not in the game itself, just getting the damn thing downloaded, installed and registered took me 2.5 hours to do. That is not including patches.

First I had to register on fileplanet which is a horrible website. Install their crappy software to download the 2gb trial software. I don't mind downloading something so big, but I do mind having to wait in a line and then have my speed bottle-necked by the greedy website because they want me to subscribe. Why not release this through filefront? Would of saved a lot more trouble there.

Afterward, I got it installed, that seemed to go alright. It installed quickly and smoothly. Registering for PlayOnline is another story. I went to register a new account and I needed some sort of registration code that was not given to me at any time leading up to this point. I searched the website and could not find anything. Finally after some prudent Google searching I found a website that emails you a PlayOnline key for trial accounts. This alone took me another 30-45 minutes.

Getting the damn thing registered after that took another 30 minutes because of all the BS info I had to put in. If I recall correctly it was like 3 different passwords for 3 different sections of the service. Completely overkill. Now after 3 hours of diddling with this crap I am finally patching my game which is 19,237 files large and will take 7 hours to patch.

When you first start playonline there's a settings button, go there and set your password to save and you'll only have to enter it once. :)

considering the game is 7 years old, and the amount of data that is always being added to it, 7 hours isn't bad. Sometimes when I reinstall it I have 10-12 hour update times.

That being said, you can reuse the same password on pol, you don't need 3 different passwords. For security purposes, they do ask for your password alot. Late 07, and most of 08, the gil farmers were hacking and stealing accounts at an unbelievable rate.
