Issues fixed[edit]

Only seeing two servers[edit]

Fix Only seeing two servers

If you log into the game and only see two servers in the list, you are actually logging into the TestLive servers.[1]

Switching between Testlive and Early Access

To switch between the Testlive and the Early Access client, simply right click on one of the options below. Save it to your hard drive, and swap your LocalConfig.xml for one of the choices below:

Testlive LocalConfig.xml Early Access LocalConfig.xml

If you see two servers instead of the full server list, you currently have the TestLive localconfig file. Close the client, change it out for the Early Access file and restart the client. You'll probably have some additional patching to do.
