I hope i am the only one experiencing problems with Digital Jesters, but for some reason i almost dont think so....

This is the message I got on the 05 May 2004 at 10:46 AM (+02:00 South African Time) from DJ after enquiring about the status of my shipment

[color:"blue"] Hello,

Your order shipped on the 28/04/04, I don't have access to your address details but for Europe allow 7 - 10 days, for North America allow 10 -14 days and ROW up to 28 days, but most parcels arrive within 14 days .

[color:"white"]This is the message I got on the 18 May 2004 at 15:54 PM (+02:00 South African Time)after the message below:[/color]
[color:"blue"] order number: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

Do you have some kind of tracking number for the packages you send out? If
there is please pass it on to me, in South Africa we can phone a tracking
center to check on the progress of the parcel. It will make the wait a
little more endurable. (Anxious RPG fan)[/color]

[color:"blue"] Hi Jacky,

Yes we are working on a tracking system but it is not finished yet. Your
order went out yesterday (17th)I don't know what the delay was but you
should recieve it within 10 days.

[color:"white"] Thus i sent them this message as my reply to the situation:

I am a bit unsettled about the fact that I have been given two VERY different dates. No apology offered, just the plain fact that you somehow managed to LIE to me about the shipping date. Other than the lie, its also very lame service.

I have pre-ordered this game before the 28th of April 2004. According to all records I have this should have been shipped long before yesterday.

AS you can imagine I have been waiting for the release of this game for a while now. And quite frankly I don’t think that this service is doing the hard work that Larian Studios have put into this game justice.

Please know that I am highly annoyed with the latest news. I sincerely hope that I will actually get my game before 28 days of my ORIGINAL shipping date (28 April 2004) and are not afterwards forced to go to my Credit Card Company and reverse the payment due to non-deliverance. [/color]

<img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/puppyeyes.gif" alt="" />[color:"red"] Am i the only one experiencing problems? or are there others??? If so, I only feel that it will be right to alert the Larian Crew to this, since its their products that will suffer the consequence, not DJ.

The problem in your case could be that they send the game per 'small packet' (air mail) - means: no tracking etc.
I ordered from DJ and I had no complaint at all, received it within 2 days. But it's only from UK to Germany, oh well ...
But also delivering to South Africa shouldn't be a problem.

The main problem i have is not that i havnt received it yet (although that is is a disappointment), my problem is that they gave me a date that they shipped it, and then 19 days LATER, told me, oh btw, they only sent it yesterday, not the date that they TOLD me... in otherworlds that they LIED to me about sending my parcel... and i hope that they send it by airmail... because after this episode i am in the mood for a decent fight with them.

Sorry its just not right to tell someone that "we have sent your parcel on the 28th april" and then only after further queries tell the cursotmer oh, we only sent it yesterday (after you asked us for a tracking number - and even airmail have tracking numbers unless otherwise requested). So only 19 days later (after they debited my account) do they tell me, they only sent it now... thats if it IS actually sent this time. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/puppyeyes.gif" alt="" />

That's what you call 'Communication Problems', isn't it?

Well, I hope for you, that the game will arrive soon! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wave.gif" alt="" />

Youre lucky they even responded to you. I was going to order the fan pack but accidently orderd 2 divinity games about a month ago. Im lucky the game was realesed in america yet because there would have been big problems if they charged my credit card and shipped which almost happend because it took them 5 days to answer my emails saying i wanted to cancel immidiately. After they said they cancled I then orderd the fan pack and recieved an automatic msg giving me my order number. Well its been almost a month and ive got no emails giving me shipping number or anything even though ive tried contacting them 3 more times. I gave them my shipping number and everything. They seem to have bad service and I warn those before buying with them.

Also ordered my copy on 28 April, but still waiting.
Just send them a status request, so we will see what up.

janggut,

Fan pack isn't finished yet so it will be a while (end of the month) before it is even posted to you.

I am glad to say that after that little interesting letter, i got my confirmation that the package was abroad the first plane, and arrived in the country this morning... still have to get it through OUR postage system... but thats not DJ's problem... thats a native one...

I hope to have it by friday <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

But for those who are still battling to find out where their copies are, email Terry Malham [terry.malham@digitaljesters.com] with your order number. He will check on when it was despatched.

Asked them about the status of my order here is the reply:

Your order was dipatched on the 28/04/04, US orders usually arrive within 10 days so we will send you another copy.

I haven't recieved anything yet, and I don't know why he mentioned US orders (maybe because I've paid in USD), hopefully it wasn't send to to US.

Bwahahaahhahaha

Sorry i have to laug about that one.... i hope it didnt go the US either... but then again.... "there is only 2 things infinite.... the universe and human stupidity...."

I must be honoust, i am not so sure about the universe....

Lets just hope that its reaching you very soon.... but i DO think that Larian studios should put a bit of a thumb on DJ... they slacking with the delivering...

And the only place that will get the negtive effects of that is going to be Larian.

Bizare! I've ordered both Trackmania and Beyond Divinity from Digital Jesters at separate times. Both times it only took about 3 working days to get to Australia. Lady Rain, all I can think is that they decided that the first dispatch date was entered incorrectly and they sent you another copy. Or they were out of stock? It was a poor service to give you two completely different dates like that, though.

The worst one I had was at Amazon. My girlfriend ordered a DVD box set for me. 28 days passed and it hadn't arrived. We contacted them and they sent it out again. Alex got up early one morning to take her cousin to work and when she got back, the package was sitting there at the top of the staircase. It wasn't out the front of our flat, it was in a stairwell shared by seven flats. It was marked "DVD, Amazon.com" in big letters. We lived in a bad neighbourhood. No wonder we never got the first one! So really, I blame the courier over Amazon. I hope that's not what happenend to you, Lady Rain.

I also have the Fan Pack on order. I think that it isn't actually available yet and is technically on back-order. I know they're still producing the kits. (They can only sign so many a day! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" /> ) I've contacted DJ about this. We'll see when they can expect to send them out.

WEll i had some MAJORLY good news today... I have a friend that works in customs.... (incomming parcels), she spotted the parcel (i call that sheer luck), and phoned me... so instead of waiting for it to come through our mail system (another 5 days or so), i had to send her a police stamped letter requesting her to take the parcel and deliver it to me...

So an hour ago, i finally got my copy of it!!!!

so if you dont see me for a couple of days..... i'll be stuck in the battlefields somewhere, or sneaking up to a deathknight with some explosive darts. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/party.gif" alt="" />

At least i can say one good thing of DJ.... they really JUMP when you complain... and nope, the parcel wasnt sent out twice, they only sent it on the 17th. So 3 days is what it SHOULD take to South Africa.... (well excluding our own slugish mail system)
