Swords of Legends Online posts preload and name-claim schedule ahead of July 9 launch


As the xianxia action MMORPG Swords of Legends Online inches ever closer to its July 9th PC release date, those who have pre-ordered the game have some dates they’ll want to keep in mind. First off, the game will be available for pre-download starting on Wednesday, June 30th, at 1:00 p.m. on Steam and at Thursday, July 1st, at 1:00 a.m. EDT via Gameforge’s client. Secondly, players who pre-ordered will get to pre-create their characters and register character names starting on July 2nd at 8:00 a.m. EDT and ending on July 5th at 8:00 a.m. EDT

The folks at Gameforge are also going to be doing their level best to keep conversation about the title going. To that end, there will be a livestream this coming Wednesday, June 30th, at 3:00 p.m. EDT that will discuss several pre-launch topics and provide a post-launch update roadmap.

After that, SOLO will be holding an AMA on the MMORPG subreddit on Monday, July 5th, starting at 1:00 a.m. EDT. The AMA will run for approximately two hours and doesn’t appear to have any specific theme or topic, so presumably all questions are welcome (but not necessarily guaranteed an answer, naturally). After that, of course, there’s that whole little game launch thing.

If you want to use your character look from previous versions of the game, you’ll want to manually move them over to the new game.

Location in Beta:
\Steam\steamapps\common\Swords of Legends Online Beta\ExportFace
Location in Demo:
\Steam\steamapps\common\Swords of Legends Online Demo\ExportFace

Presumably, these would need to be copied to a folder with a similar path for the launch version.

I did this moving from Beta to Demo and it should work for the live version.


Another trick for steam (after backing up your ExportFace folder, cause stuff happens) is you can prevent the full redownload of the client in this way:

1) Rename the folder \\steamapps\\common\\Swords of Legends Online Beta to \\steamapps\\common\\Swords of Legends Online (make sure to remove any trailing space

2) tell steam to download the full client. Steam will look around first, find the renamed folder and verify the files instead of redownloading everything.

Yep. I used a similar old City of Heroes trick where you let the game start to install, copy over the Beta/Demo version to the new directory, then restart Steam and let it verify files.


I did try that as well with a different game could not get it to work with steam, had to use the above method (copy/set up folder first, start install second)


Thanks for this!
