December 1st....A day that shall live in Inf*
« on: December 01, 2012, 10:28:32 PM »
So...I was there when the lights went out on Justice last night.

This morning I fired up the client for old time's sake...got to the login part, and there it stops.  Between Prod, Test and Beta that's about  12GB of HD space I can reclaim.  All I have to do is uninstall it, or delete it.

Tomorrow.

Back it up somewhere. You never know what might happen.
We were heroes. We were villains. At the end of the world we all fought as one. It's what we did that defines us.
The end occurred pretty much as we predicted: all servers redlining until midnight... and then no servers to go around.

Somewhere beyond time and space, if you look hard you might find a flash of silver trailing crimson: a lone lost Spartan on his way home.

If you uninstall the NC Launcher, rename your City folder first. The Launcher attempts to uninstall any NC games it finds during uninstall.

Sounds a bit nutty, but I thought about backing up my folder onto a thumb drive necklace. That way no matter what happens, Paragon will always be with me. :-[

For legal resons regarding a possible emulator server, do NOT delete your game unless you still have the discs.

Already did that. 

Now that thumb drive is going in a safety deposit box.

I only had one NCsoft program and that was City of Heroes. 
One way or another... Heroes will fly again!

I'm going to give mine to Stan from Accounting to put in the cigar box in his desk drawer.
I wouldn't use the word "replace," but there's no word for "take over for you and make everything better almost immediately," so we just say "replace."

Too late. I hardly think I can get into any legal trouble for deleting a game that no longer works. But, I not only have the CDs for CoH, I have CoV and GR as well.

YIKES...

I had a notion to uninstall the NCSoft launcher last today. I had NO INTENTION of deleting the COH, COH Test, and COH Beta Folders though or anything in them. And I stayed my hand, wanting to ask around here about whether it was safe to do.

I'm glad I waited! Yeesh! That would've been awful!

I think she means if you delete it and she makes an emulator, she can't legally provide a downloader, so you'd better still own a copy if you want to play.

If you uninstall and the uninstaller takes off all your programs, you also can't replay your demorecords.

Does anyone know if we can just remove the NCSoft installer file and leave the rest?
As long as somebody keeps making up stories for it, the City isn't gone.

When you uninstall the Launcher, it asks you if you want to delete any associated game files. Click No.
Then it asks if you're sure (or something along those lines). Click yes.

Launcher gone. City of Heroes stays.

Simple.

I don't have the heart to delete it. I know its irrational, illogical to hold onto hope, but I just can't make myself delete CoX.  That file's been there for five years and three computers now and it was one of the first things I'd install on a new machine.
