      Copying or moving Wiz 101 files

      So I just got a new computer and want to play Wiz 101 on it. I know I have to install the game but on my old computer the KingsIsle Entertainment folder is 2.1 GB in size. I don't want to have to download all that in-game on my new computer, it will take too long. Can I copy the 2.1 GB KingsIsle Entertainment folder to my new computer and avoid the long download? If so, should I do it before I download and install the game or after? Thanks in advance, see you in the game! Steve
      Enjoy the journey.

      Re: Copying or moving Wiz 101 files

      I suppose you could try it, it might save time. But if you want the best shot at an error free install then you should stick to KI's installer. If I were to try it myself, I'd run the installer, then copy in the missing files compared to your old computer. Good luck!

      I don't think copping it will do its supposed to be downloaded but i guess you can always try!

      I don't think you should copy, I'd rather wait with no errors than go faster with possible errors.

      I have done this several times now and it works without any problems.

      Just copy the KingIsle Entertainment folder (exactly as it is) from one computer to the other(make sure you copy it into program files). Then download the installer and install the game over it.

      The game will verify all the files the first time you log in to the game and patch where necessary.

      Saves you time and them bandwidth.

      You can copy. Ive done it a lot, and it hasnt caused any problems.
      Oh and it really doesnt matter where those files end up, if after installing you move the entire folder somewhere else. The transfered files have to be in the correct folder (game's folder). I mostly only copy only Data and Bin.
      When you start the game it will quickly run over every file and update if needed.

      Re: Copying or moving Wiz 101 files

      Alright, as a computer geek, not sure why you would bother to copy files for Wiz from one computer to a brand new one. There are many reasons that I feel this might not be a good idea:

      1. A brand new computer is almost always 100% spyware, virus, malware free. There is no single defense to protect a computer 100%, so your old computer might be harboring unknown meanies that, if you were to transfer files to the new computer, will now call your new computer home.

      2. There is a reason why KI keeps updating servers. All of your information is stored on their servers. There is no need for one to transfer files.

      3. It really does not take more than 5 minutes to be able to log onto the game when making a clean install, the only annoyance is really just waiting for all of the graphics to redownload. A lot of that 2.1 GB size is made of thumbnails that ensure you see objects in the game properly.

      4. KI just released the Selena quest, so therefore it is a good idea to just make a clean install to ensure that you get the most recent patch. Many people are having problems (myself included until I re-installed the game) logging in after the update, which means that one file in the old installer is not being nice to a file in the patch

      My advice, it is more logical to just re-install the game on your new computer.

      Re: Copying or moving Wiz 101 files

      FWIW, I just finished copying the files from one computer to another (the installer wouldn't work for me). The game worked fine with the exception that some of the characters appeared like golems, BUT this resolved itself after 2 days.

      If you are concerned about download times, start the installer, launch the game, then have dinner while the assets download.

      I just wanted to throw in that your characters probably looked like those Wood Golems because not everything was installed yet. KI says that they appear because of that reason.
