Hello everyone, my situation is a little bit complicated so I will try to explain this as clearly as i can:
I am from Slovakia, but atm I live in Netherlands, where I have really shitty internet connection. After the game was announced, I preordered retail copy from one Slovakian shop, because Im huge fan and i simply want to have a memory in form of something physical instead of just another line in my digital library.
My problem is that, my sister will be able to get the game 19th (because my boss didnt accept my vacation request, damn :D), and only then be able to give me key, but I wont be able to activate it earlier than next day, 20th, because of my job. With my shitty internet it will take me shitloads of hours to download whole game, so I will be lucky if I will actually play it during the weekend. Those days of freakin watching download bar will, as you guys will surely agree, unbearable suffering. :D
So, correct me if Im wrong, but I am not able to preload game officially without key, since I dont have it yet. Since I noticed a lot of open-minded people in here, I think i can discuss any other sources of preload and not get too much shit for it. I tried torrenting it from one site, it will take long time but at least I will have it. So please if you want to help send me any fast/reliable source.
Back to the question. Do you guys know if I will be able to actually activate the "preloaded" files with my own key? Doesnt the preload specifically connect with every particular pre-order key? I dont think so, but Im asking just to be sure, because it will take me a lot of time to download it, and it will save me time to download game again from official source if it doesnt work. I really want to support CD Project Red so I want to have it activated here, on GOG and I dont want to play some pirated version of the game.
If you guys know of any way of helping me to get my hands on the game sooner, I missed something, or know of any fast, reliable download for preload, please reply or PM me, thanks a lot.

well if every1 who takes it from skid can play it on day via 1 patch then i guess u dont even need to . i mean once u get ur key from the retail version u then go to gog and they give u a digital version i think. basicly i dont see why even bother with digital if the skid one is the same. keep ur retail and no need to retro activly activate the preload since it was already activated by skid or any other source. how gog galaxy will see the game well that i cant be sure if u care for the achivements i guess just take the digital after u get ur key from retail and till then play the skid one. but are u gona be able to copy the save file from skid to ur digital that i cant be sure will work with no hickups. but guess optimistic answer would be it would work with no probs
