I've joined it, but I have yet to talk to anyone on it.  No one seems to be on. :-(

I really wish I could get started on this. I received the collector's bundle as a birthday present last week, but I've had zero time to play it. ;---;

Bounty Hunter on Lord Aldraas.  Look for Zevram.  And no, I am not joining any guilds at the moment.

I'm trying my best not to get addicted to it. But as a major star wars fan its kinda hard.
xD
As a result i'm now considering buying my own high spec PC rather than using my bf's so that I can play it more often~
Which is a bad state of affairs but hey-ho, its a damn good game and we all know it.

We spent ~$650 to upgrade Myrleena's PC to be able to play the game, and mine was upgraded a year ago (another $600 upgrade).  It's something of a cycle in our house, we upgrade each computer every other year with some minor updates in between.

@Sham: I'm looking at a similar amount of money to purchase a new computer. My bf's brother is gonna help me out since he's a major techie when it comes to this stuff. So yeah, I just worry about getting too enthralled by it. It's the first game I've actually bothered about on the Computer so it was just an opportunistic thing since my bf got the hardware. xD

@Chris: I'm a total nerd about it xD It's kinda sad really. Right now all I can think about is Star Wars. RPing it, Gaming it. <3 I love it wayyyy too much. Even kinda playing with the idea of growing a braid for my hair. My bf said it would look good on me when I put a fake one in to try it out.

I just built the new comp I'm on right now, I can run all my games on high or ultra with no effing lag...  I love it.  Star Wars and Skyrim right now are my addictions.  Started playing battle brawlers and team fortress 2 as well.

Well the one I'm getting should be similar. (It had better be for the amount of money I'm spending.)
I've pretty much decided to go ahead and get it since my father waved some PC-World Vouchers in my face that got me £50 off the same monitor my bf has. So I just gotta gather the money together and wait for my bf's brother to sort things out.
Unfortunately it means i'll have to get another copy of the game to install it on the new comp, wish there was a way around that but meh. In the grand scheme of things £40 isn't much, already saved that much and more yesterday. Hehe.

I am still in so much love with my new comp.  Though the Solid State Drive is kind of losing its luster.

Errrr...I hope you don't mean that you are going to buy another copy.  I mean...you can download installer from the website once you log in.  When you buy the game you're really paying for the account, not the installation.

I knew it sounded stupid having to buy another copy!
Thanks for saving my neck there. I'm not the most technical minded of peeps when it comes to computing. I'm an electrician not an I.T. guy. Heh. I do very much appreciate you telling me that, makes life a lot easier and eases the pain in my wallet slightly.

On that note, Pumpkin, I'm delighted to inform you that I have no idea what a solid state drive is. But I'd love to find out.
(There's a reason why my future brother in law is doing all this for me xP)

All an SSD is, is a hard drive that has no moving parts.  A basic HDD (Hard Disk Drive) has discs, on top of each other and a little needle that hovers over them to read your information.  An SSD (Solid State Drive) uses microchips instead.  It's a bit more stable, meaning you can drop it on the floor and it won't break as easily.

Also supposed to go alot faster.  Which it does do that, but I can see a distinct slow down as I put more stuff on it...so need to learn to care for it better I guess.

Ahhh, good good.
At least I've learnt something today. Two things actually. Thanks a lot guys.
I've sorted everything out for the computer so it's been ordered. Probably gonna be a while till it gets here though.
How's everyone doing vis-a-vie their adventures on TOR then? I'm having a blast I can say that much. Spent most of today messing about and helping out some random lower level guys. :D

That does happen due to when you load something it does have an order process in which it has to shift through everything on the drive.  Though unlike HDD, it doesn't have to rev up to read the data on the drive, the SSD just in a sense bullets through all the files it has stored... Best thing to do is only put what you absolutely need to load up faster and keep everything on your HDD.

Of course, the critical down side to SSD vs HDD is cost.  Standard HDD is somewhere in the $.10-20/GB range.  SSD is closer to $2.00/GB.  That's the part that clinches it for me.  If you can afford even a modest SSD drive to install Star Wars on it will save you a lot of loading time.

For installing the game:  go to SWTOR.COM and click on Login (I don't know if the sites the same in Europe, but on the US site it's top right).  Once you've logged in normally click on "My Account" (again, top right).  This should take you to the Account Management page.  On the right hand side is a column with various links.  Click on Games (Download) and this should take you to a page with a link to download the game client, matching the version you purchased.  If you have CDs you can just install from those directly and then run the updates.

I'll make note of that. Thanks again. I guess my main worry was that it'd expect the product key which has obviously already been used but if it recognises that said product key is attatched to my account then i'm home free. I can't wait. Unlimited access to the game not just 2 hours if i'm lucky.

It never asks for the key during installation ^_^  The key is attached to your login.

Sweeeet.
Well that's good. Very good. I just dunno what to do with myself until the comp arrives. With luck I'll be able to find a decent Star Wars roleplay with which to pass the time.
Waiting for stuff is the worst. -3-
