I bought this fan pack about two weeks ago and I forgot to enter my e mail address, I have yet to hear from someone about this besides "We'll get this taken care of" by Digital Jesters. I replied with my e mail address but there was absolutely no confimation whatsoever from their end of having recieved the message.

To make things worse, I have not yet recieved my fan pack, and I have yet been charged.

Tell you guys what: I must have shot out 10 e mails to various Larian and DJ outlets and it does not sound like anyone is home/listening. I dont get a response in a week or so, Im going to call my CC company and reverse the payment.

Apologies for the trouble and sorry for dragging this to a public forum.

Feel free to move this to where it needs to be if its not in the right forum.

Most of the DJers are in LA (as am I) for E3 (big gaming showing for those of you that don't know). Things have been very busy with the run up to E3 which is probably why you haven't had much feedback from them. I've signed about 220 novellas so far and those only went back to DJ last week, so I'm guessing the fan packs will be going out after they come back from LA, so don't panic you haven't been forgotten, but I shall nudge the DJers when I next see them <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I think the fan packs are going out once they're all complete. I ordered the Fan Pack with the game from Digital Jesters. I have the game but no fan pack, so I assume it's coming later.

Thanks for the update Rhianna! I'm looking forward to it. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Any interesting gossip from E3?

Not yet, it doesn't officially start until Wednesday, but the press conferences start tomorrow.

soo will the Larians have a "stand" in the E3 ???
Posted By: Warhammer Re: Where is my soundtrack and book? - 10/05/04 07:36 AM
AFAIK Larian does not have a stand but both DJ and Hip Games do.

That's right, Swen is taking a well deserved break from E3 this year!

If you want, you can download an ogg to mp3 converter, and make your own soundtrack that way. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

That's not very nice...
If you think about all the hard work that went into that Audio CD.
So, please think twice before doing so.

And in any case, the songs are not identical with those in-game. You will only discover them on the real Audio cd <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I'm not suggesting that he pirate the music or the game. And I don't see anything unethical about extracting music from a game that you already own.

You don't *own* the game and all it's art content.
That's the reason why a game that is open sourced isn't free (ig. quake), the developer/publisher still have the rights on the IP, artwork and music.

I just got my BD copy today, w00t!

Of course you *own* the game <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/suspicion.gif" alt="" /> -- You just don't own the rights to distribute any of it. But you can do anything you want with the game and anything that came with it, as long as it doesn't leave your house - so to speak.

you mean redistribute to your own advantage
Posted By: Abanyir Re: Where is my soundtrack and book? - 11/05/04 12:02 PM
You don't 'own' the game - you own the right to install and run it on your personal machine. The game remains the property of the publisher.
Posted By: Marian Re: Where is my soundtrack and book? - 11/05/04 02:41 PM
Game in this case is a little bit unclear. Of course you own your physical copy of the game (and the right to use it the way it is without changing or extracting any of the content), but "the game" itself is obviously intellectual property of Larian studios.

Is there any news about the fan-packs? I'm still waiting for it. A small word of comfort would be nice.

Posted By: Abanyir Re: Where is my soundtrack and book? - 12/05/04 07:41 PM
Heh, yeah - I meant what Marian said <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

And some idea when to expect the fan packs would be nice...
Posted By: Abanyir Re: Where is my soundtrack and book? - 18/05/04 04:26 PM
Any news yet??
Posted By: Marian Re: Where is my soundtrack and book? - 18/05/04 05:24 PM
I don't know but i think some heavy patience is necessary here. They promised to get Kirill to put a line on the cover of each CD. That's a challenge... Making <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beyond.gif" alt="" /> is easy compared to that... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" />

Hi all,

The fanpacks will be shipped at the end of the month.
The audio-cd went recently into production, and some formalities were/are required (SABAM - author rights documents). We are waiting for the latter, but they promised they would take care of it real soon.

Thanks for your patience.

Lynn

Ok, thanks for the update <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
Posted By: GoldyLocks Re: Where is my soundtrack and book? - 18/05/04 10:40 PM
my collectors items (well in 10 years or so) will be here soon.
Thanks for the update Lynn.
