Hey there, everypony!

The downloads for our Open Access Release are now available from our website's downloads page, so you can grab your copy of the game files,and you'll be ready for when the servers open tomorrow (September 10) at 00:01 EST!

Click here to download Legends of Equestria's Open Access Release! (https://www.legendsofequestria.com/downloads)

Please note: some browsers might not trust our downloads, and label them as potentially dangerous. As long as you're only getting them from our downloads page, they should be safe to run, but be careful that you don't download files claiming to be LoE from anywhere else; we can't guarantee that they're safe! If you have trouble downloading the files, try searching for instructions on how to unblock downloads with your internet browser.

In addition, your operating system or antivirus software might also think LoE files are a risk. You may have to tell it to let the program run; again, try searching online for instructions on how to do this, depending on your operating system/security software!

Legends of Equestria is designed for Windows, MacOS, and Linux computers. To check if your computer will be able to run LoE, take a look at the details on our FAQ page (https://www.legendsofequestria.com/faq)!

We can't thank you all enough for following and supporting us on this journey so far, but remember, the Open Access Release is just the first step we'll be taking together! There's a lot more to come, so we hope you're all ready to explore Equestria together with us!

See you tomorrow!

How did you do? That is cool, the clock counting down to the launch of Open Access.

So, once you have the launcher downloaded, does it then download the game through that, or is the game just already downloaded along with it?  My launcher has some kind of green bar that keeps cycling, so I am not sure if that is a download sequence, or if it is 'searching' for the server.

 Game data is downloaded alongside it. It's all there, just waiting for the servers to come up.

I advise everyone to make sure they add exceptions to their antivirus for the .exe file. Mine was seeing it as a threat for some reason.

The Launcher is currently bugged and stuck in a loop, also the Mega Download is over capacity.

Use my download mirror if you want -Or don't cause no external links, rules plz-

I'll be providing more download hosters in a few hours, currently only hosting it on DropBox.

I could make a Linux version of the Windows launcher, but I'd need to know how it works. I have made a launcher/updater for another pony Linux game; My Little Karaoke.

Post by: PaperCat on 2017 Sep 09, 13:05:32
So, just for clarification, once the servers are up all I gotta do to play the game is double-click the file LoE-Launcher.exe, right? This is my first time play in an Open Access, so I'm still a little fuzzy on the details. I downloaded the LoE files from the Mega downloader, if that information is of any significance.
Title: Re: Open Access Release Downloads Are Now Available!
Post by: LPatamon on 2017 Sep 09, 13:27:46
Good thing there is a Windows 32 full package download. The launcher only downloads the 64bit Windows version.

The diffrence would be 1 hour either way. Why not aim for the middle then?

That would be 9.5h +- 30 min

Nope

You need new one.

It's been bugging me that whoever picked specs choose 256mb vram on gpu. It might need a correction to at least 512MB or 1GB to be safe. Why? Download GPU-Z close all running programs that can be closed and run GPU-Z. While the system is iddle the load will be ~256 MB VRAM. Then LoE is open it will jump by at least another half reaching even 400MB on the GPU. When the game will be running it will jump again.  Therefore:

1GB+ VRAM - safe for high full screen details
512 VRAM - medium-low
256 VRAM - low settings + playing in window mode

This is just the GPU's ram, not OS

Okay, I'm testing all the menus and such from the game.

Is it normal for LoE to tell me that I can't log on because "my username or password may be incorrect?" I know the servers aren't open just yet, and that's why I shouldn't be able to log in, but... I dunno, that's a very specific error message it's giving me.

Otherwise, I have a silly question. Does it have to be our usernames that display over our heads or can we have custom names? I don't want to be ObeyBunny in the game. I want to be Limeflower, or Mellow Tone, or something else that actually sounds like a pony name.

You can name your character how you want, or have a randomly generated one. You need to login with your forum name and pass.

Your password or username is incorrect, you should be getting a message saying the servers aren't up. Are you sure you are using your forum username and password?

Please add at least two more servers. I understand that it's hard right now, but we really need them. Well, sure, we can play in different hours, when servers aren't full. Just two more servers.
Title: Re: Open Access Release Downloads Are Now Available!
Post by: AlexshowProductions on 2017 Sep 10, 11:39:59
To also vouch, I think it would be wise to add two extra servers; as that it could hopefully bring down the amount of people trying to refresh on two servers at once. Hopefully it gets cleared up, and that we can play it today for those who are stuck at the menu.
Title: Re: Open Access Release Downloads Are Now Available!
Post by: Gleam on 2017 Sep 10, 11:42:21
Can we at least know how many people are currently playing? Knowing my ping is cool and all, but I'd rather see a playercount so I can quickly click join when I see the number decrease by 1.

Click the launcher and x63 or x32 (depending on your computer) and download the files. Double click the launcher and then update (or whatever is written on bottom right). Wait for it to load. It might take a while to finish. Then, the game should open itself.

I'm sorry if I didn't say it the right way, I am not really good with computers. However I hope that was helpful

Try going to C:\Users\[your username]\AppData\LocalLow
