Today is Release Day! Yay! I know that you've all been waiting for this day for a long time, but hopefully you'll think that the end result is worth it. We're very happy with it here. Twilight is now available for download! If you have any problems after following these tips, you can hop on irc.stardock.com and we'll try to help you. Anyway, I have a few tips to make sure that that you don't have problems installing the full version of Twilight.
First, update Dark Avatar and Dread Lords if you haven't been keeping them up to date. That way, you won't load up Twilight only to get an annoying pop up.
Second, un-install the beta of Twilight if you have it installed. Check to make sure that the folder and all its contents were removed. This will ensure that you get a clean install should avoid any problems of files not being fully updated, etc.
Third, if you decide to play Dark Avatar or Dread Lords while you wait, make sure that you exit the game before attempting to update any of the modules. Otherwise, the installer may go to update a file only to find that it's been locked by the game and can't be removed.
Fourth, make sure that you remove or rename your My Documents\My Games\GC2TwilightArnor folder so that Twilight can start with a new one. This will avoid any problems due to the custom race xml files not being updated, ship files with old information, etc. Save games from the beta should still load, but you may want to start a new game anyway to be on the safe side.
If you are installing from SDC and you run into problems, go to Tools->Internet Settings and refresh the XML data, then restart SDC. Whether you're installing from SDC or Impulse, make sure that you have the latest version. You can also try switching servers. All updates get posted on US-1 first and then the data has to sync to US-2, so if you start downloading immediately after we post it, your best bet is to be on US-1, but later in the day, US-2 might have less traffic if everyone is trying US-1. If it doesn't show up, you may also need to un-check the Show Pre-Release versions option.
