For the people only getting the smoke:
Trying selecting your own country. I tried selecting US, because I preffer seeing Harry Potter official stuff in English, but I couldn’t find the link to the demo until I cliked on the Brazilian version of the site; only to find out that the demo comes in a “.exe” file, which, if I’m not mistaken, doesn’t run on Mac’s.
Oh well…. only six more days until the game comes out.
Mr. Horn has taught me the virtue of patience.
it’s not working for me :( does this demo not function on a mac?
To run Half Blood Prince your computer should these specificationsat a minimum:
Operating System Windows XP/Vista
Processor 1.8GHz Pentium 4 or comparable
Video card 64MB
HDD Space 685MB
Soundcard DirectX 9.0c or higher compliant sound card
DirectX DirectX 9.0c
on the other side of the clip is this word, poccnr, but i am on the usa site! confused..
Can’t figure out how to download…
really cool…. I will download it right now…
It is probably slow due to the high number of people attempting to download it.
I can’t download it there is Error!!!!
29 mins to go…
Got it! Going to play it tomorrow!
It’s now installing. Getting more and more curious.
Just finished playing – the demo gives you two things flying class (which is just a game of Quidditch vs. Slytherin) and Gryffindor Dueling Club.
Flying Class – The game isn’t that fun. You just use your mouse to move Harry through these stars until you eventually catch the snitch. Really boring and disapointing…
Dueling Club – Dumbledore decided to start up a dueling club – yay! And this kid seems to have a mancrush on you (Harry) and pretty much keeps telling you how awesome you are until you do a demonstration of how to duel. You and Ron do the demo and you learn how to cast Expelliarmus and Stupefy. Then you have a real duel against Ron, then against some other girl. Both duels are best 2 out of 3. These are actually pretty fun, but still easy.
Awesome! Can’t wait to try it :)
Downloading it now :)
It says that its not a valid win32 application after i downloaded and tried to open!!! grrr… help, anyone?
