I have a clean form of Windows 8 and am having issues downloading the game. Any recommendations? (It stops downloading at 99% or I get a notepad)

    I wound up copying my filed from my windows 7 for PW and putting them on an external HD. I copied them to c:/ or if yours was installed to program files. Paste it to the same file path you copied it from in your windows 8 installation and then run the launcher. It should check for updates, it might ask you to run in compatibility, say yes. Works fine for me. If you say no to compatibility, it doesn't work.

    I am having the same problem, brand new computer with windows 8. It downloads, gets to 99% then stops. I've shut my firewall and anti virus off. Anyone know what to do?

    Basically the Pando Booster sux, Use Torrent Method to download the game, it is more faster and reliable. Before downloading the game diasble your anti-virus and firewall etc , then start downloading after it's done install the game , update the game you can use Manual patch it is more faster then auto-update and doesn't stuck in between.
    Add the game files to anti-virus/security/firewall exception lists before enabling it ,Run the game in Adminstrator Mode. You should be able to login and play ! Good Luck

    Sooo, now I'm having problems with bug reports. My graphics will get all weird sometimes and bug reports something terrible. During tw tonight I got 6 or more bug reports. Sometimes it's just when I'm flying around Arch. Any suggestions?

    Make sure your graphic's drivers are updated, Lower-down your distance completely while in heavily populated areas use Best Performance and Lower-Down your graphic's Setting that might help you.

    Same as you download it in Win 7, just make sure to add the client files in security software right after u download it and install it, and when ur downloading it disable your security cause it might throttle it or cause any issue. Since pwi isn't updated to Win 8 u maybe have to run Win 7 or XP compatibility mode

    Good Luck !
