Uninstall Episode 1 or not ?
« on: July 12, 2010, 10:39:40 AM »
Hello,

   First, the episode one is incredible ! Very good job team :)
I can't wait for the next chapter ! :)

   My question is simple : can we uninstall the game ? Will
the second episode have an installation setup on his own ?

Thanks !

If i have to guess, you need Episode 1 for Episode 2 to work, so you will be Downloading 4 Epsiodes to make a Complete Game and you can then Start Episode 1 while you Automaticly move on to Episode 2 or Choose to play Episode 2/3/4/5

As far as I know, there is no need to uninstall previous chapters. Episode 1 has the links to the five chapters already, but none of them are active yet except 1. When you download and install the next chapter, the in game link should start up episode 2 automatically. If someone with more knowledge of how the game works in this respect can back me up, that'd be great. I assume this is how it works, but I'm not sure.

Seems like TC is wondering if you just can run each episode totally independently of the others, like if you CAN uninstall Episode 1 and still install install Episode 2 and have it play all by itself.

No, you Need Episode 1 for Episode 2 to work

Its like you Dont Download any of the Chapters just Chapter 5 and it will ask you for the Other Chapters to let 5 Work

Actually, Tales of Monkey Island were Separate Episodes, you dident need the Previous Episodes

That's kind of what I figured since the episode selection screen appears to be built into the Episode 1 installer.

You will need previous episodes, yes. The game's new episodes work like extension packs in that they download to the already existing folders and open new areas in the game.

Does that mean as new packs are released you'll only have a one download, that contains all existing parts? So that we only have to worry about downloading a single link, if for instance I choose to delete the game to free up room (in between releases).
Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be.

Based on what Cesar posted above I get the impression that those files and folders need to still exist when the new chapters are coming out.  If you're that strapped for space I'd recommend running a disk cleanup, I've seen that free up over 10 GB on some computers, or you could pick up a pretty decent extra external hard drive for like 20 bucks.

What I meant was will people who download in the future have to download 5-6 different sets of files, or will there be a single link that will have one handy single installation.

I'm really not strapped for space :p... I'm just trying to find out how this is going to work in the future.

Oh now I see what you're asking, like someone comes in just after Episode 4 is released, will they have just one big file to download or all of the releases separately.

And my answer is I have no idea.
