Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I just started up the game launcher and saw that the "Troll Trouble" DLC is free if you register the game. If I try to register through the launcher menu, I get this error:

Connection error. Try again later.

I also tried to register through the website, but both the Register and Login links in the top-right of the web page appear to be dead. (If you view source, the CSS class is "inactive".)

Is there any way I can work around this?

Edit: Now I get the following error:

A connection with the server could not be established.

So it definitely seems to be due to the work they're doing for the patch.

Hmm, I just found this. I assume the "second downtime" is occurring now, and they haven't actually posted about it yet.

We are currently updating the servers and preparing for the incoming patch release. We will be posting updates on this issue.

UPDATE: The servers are up but we predict another downtime today. It shouldn't take more than an hour and we will inform about it.

Edit: I was able to register through the launcher later but still cannot sign into the website. The only DLC available was the Polish voiceovers and subtitles, until I restarted the launcher. Troll Trouble was there and I am downloading it (just ignore the box asking you for a pre-order code and hit "Download").

You can get your preorder stuff using the info in one of their blog posts and you can patch the game using this post if it doesn't update automagically.

Edit 2: Patch 1.2 is out and comes with all of the previous DLC.

Does this make my question Too Localized? –  Matthew Read May 23 '11 at 17:05
    
Assuming the problem goes away in a couple hours, yes. You can delete it if that is the case. –  bwarner May 23 '11 at 17:34
    
Looks like issues persist, I'll try to keep this answer somewhat current to help other people. –  Matthew Read May 28 '11 at 14:54
