Here is a simple guide to follow if you missed out getting your beta code either through pre-ordering or registering online. Update: Sorry about the trouble guys, I don't know what happened but it's back. Enjoy the guide.
Why didn't I think of that...? Will it work though... or will my IP address show I'm in NA and I won't be on?
I haven't run into any problems so far. I'm running the game on my PS3 through my US account and I also got the patch from the US account, still waiting on Konami's site to work so I can get the ID. We'll know for sure if it works for online come the 21st.
I got mines today. w00000000t. Couldn't get the patch though. It took forever and Got network errors.
just put it on p to p and and turn of your tv and walk away, thats what i did just waiting for id
i got mine this way too...all i need id the id and im good to go i suppose...
it was stuck at 0%. Jeez, I hope these aren't the download speeds everyone was complaining about :/ --edit-- When I first started it out, it was stuck at 0% and 0kb being downloaded. Now I'm getting a download!
I got up to 20% on HTTP, so even though the p2p method is recommend by Konami, I wouldn't recommend it personally.
The same thing is happening to me it sucks.
the http errors to much, p to p takes for ever but it works
ppl playing MGO. Basically, if this method works, then everyone who wanted to get in the beta in NA but didn't have the DVD code is gonna do this method instead. If the Konami servers crashed under the pressure of just those people worldwide that were signed up to participate in the beta...I wonder what's gonna happen when the actual gaming starts with all these "new" Europeans?
To people complaining about download speeds: Use P2P, no network errors and as long as the correct ports are open it'll connect to a peer and you'll get a fairly decent download speed. When I downloaded the patch I got 300kb/s.
One thing the guy left out that the Konami/Game ID must be a US Konami/Game ID, or you will get you account deleted.
...Just going to wait for the full game to be released instead of pi**sing around with downloading a patch for a demo on the day the demo was released. I have tried 17 times to download the patch but each time has resulted in error. The demo has now been deleted off my PS3. I know there is bucket loads of hype surrounding this game but I get annoyed with half assed approaches to somethimg that should be straight forward. Having to download a patch for a demo the day its released is as f**ked up as the lobby system used on COD4.
I was one of the unfortunate gamers that got the 9-digit code so i emailed konami ([email protected]) something like that,in the mean time i downloaded the beta using the European account method, but i just received their answer and they sent me a brand new 12-digit code that WORKS!!!! :) so im downloading it to PS. The icon and name that represents the Beta file is different on both, so i dont know if the european one will work here in the US...
i got my konami game id the first day i heard i needed it than i was one of the first to read u can download it so i hurry over to my code put it in so i can get a head start knowing it be a lot of people downloading and i find my code doesn't work i emailed them yesterday im waiting still sigh y me
where do you go to get the patch??
Anybody have any luck getting on the konami ID site? HAY IT LOADED! Took awhile, still loading, but w00t! Oh, wait.. nevermind: "We regret to inform you that the site is currently busy due to high level of traffic creating difficulties in logging in. We would like to recommend that you try again at a different time. We would like to apologize for any inconveniences caused in the meantime." Um wait that's the news, damn I'm tired. Anyway I should be getting my ID. I hit next and then it said that the page was deleted due to inactivity... wtH?
Im almost done downloading use p2p easier less failing. Now konami ID a problemo
haven't been able to register konami id. either says that its been inactive too long, which is bs since it just never loads the page, or it says the server is too busy, or just doesn't load at all.
Ready to go. Got patch waiting to get ID. I think they will give away ID's the first day when the beta starts. Can not wait. All of my other games will have to take the back seat while I play MGS4.
You Need to make ur own ID at id.konami.net
What are you on about? Its on the PS store
dont worry konami will soon block all non-european ips from accessing the beta, then you will all be screwed
the site is loading just fine now for me but once I get past the agreement all I get is: An error has occurred. Due to a period of inactivity, the page has been deleted. Please click on the below link to return to the top page. FOR NO REASON >:O
what is patch 1.01?
