VABlitz: Noticed an oddity. I wanted to install to C:\Games\Bioshock. It installed, but it would not run and crashed with an error. I'm running 7 64 bit. Not sure if it had something to do with the install location or 64 bit OS, but after installing to the default directory I had no problems.

realkman666: Probably need to be ran as administrator.
Yeah, I tried that as well as running in compatibility mode.

Edit: It appears it just must have been a bad install. Removed it and reinstalled in C:\Games and runs with no problems.

phaolo: Uh, I meant that I don't know much about torrents, so I didn't want to cause illegal sharing. O_o'
If it's only with the other paying clients, then ok.
Well, I'll try again Tribler for now, because I'm lazy to install other software lol. Thanks
You could always forego torrent and just download it. I had no issues downloading it that way, besides taking an hour (My companies Internet).

A 6 GB non-resumable download is a bit too much.. luckly the torrent is working good (even if it causes massive fragmentation..ugh).

Just got the tier 1 games. Anyone know if I can gift the Bioshock 1 Steam key whilst keeping the DRM free copy? Only I already that one on Steam.

Torrent has integrity check on its own. So if the file is fully downloaded, there's no need to worry.
I haven't had any problem with direct download until now though.

I believe so, yes.

Yes, you can.
Uh.. I expected an ISO file for Bioshock, but, instead, the file is an archive O_o

Anyway, is it possible to delete some unneeded languages to save space? Did anyone try it?

Can you try it and tell us?

OK. I tried installing Bioshock in 2 ways; once without touching anything from the DRM-Free installer folder and the other by deleting the DEU/ESP/FRA/ITA folders and it made no difference. In both cases Bioshock's installation folder had the exact same size (5.5 gb). Furthermore, digging a bit more into the Localizedint.lbf file located into Bioshock's Content folder, I conclude that the Humble version installs only the International version and if you want one of the other languages, you must extract them into Bioshock's folder manually and make the appropriate changes into the Localizedint.lbf file.

Thank you for the test, Grargar. +1
I'd like to keep ENG (INT?) and ITA only.
It's quite weird, however, that the setup doesn't automatically install the chosen language :O

P.S: why doesn't GoG always use a single file, then? I don't like those .bin pieces :\

There are six language folders; DEU/ENG/ESP/FRA/INT/ITA. Under no circumstances should you touch the INT folder as it is the default language used in the installation. I don't know why Humble doesn't give an automatic option of changing your language, but I suppose they forgot about it.

As for why GOG doesn't use single files and instead resorts to multiple .bin files, the answer is simple; usb flash devices only support files with a maximum of 2 or 4 gb (depending on the device's file system) and making the installers huge (Witcher 2 could be having a 15 gb installer!) would severely limit your options to carry around your beefier GOG games.

realkman666: The subject matter is actually both intriguing and disgusting at the same time, and the levels and characters are all telling that tale in different ways. Even though I don't enjoy playing it, I must admit that everything is there for a reason. I prefer Infinite as a game, but the original idea was clearly never fleshed out and developed as successfully as in Bio1.
You've been most helpful, thanks realkman666 (+1). My curiosity got the best of me so I bought the game. :)

Me neither.

Ok ok, I'll keep INT+ENG for sure, thanks.
Did HB "repack" the game? Isn't there a default original DRM-free setup from 2K?

Aren't USB keys big enough to use NTFS nowadays? Fat32 is older than XP..
I really hope that GoG will abandon this method in the future, I prefer single files.
