How To Buy White Gold War In Paradise
 
NOTE to see the full original guide goto: DEAD LINK, SORRY!

This is an FAQ that contains information on how to buy White Gold War in Paradise and how to properly apply the patches.

Patches are located here:
http://www.patches-scrolls.de/white_…n_paradise.php -Disk Version Patch and Translation Mod
DEAD LINK, SORRY! -Disk Version Patch
http://filebeam.com/1cb85826330d83d7cecdb320635e78fe -Diskless Version Patch - For some reason the guy at patches scrolls never returned my emails when I requested him to upload it on his site some time ago…


How to tell if your game is patched(?):
This is not 100% for sure but it gave me good indication as to whether my game was patched or not.
On a clean install of version 1.0 of the game, my White gold directory contained 4 (or so, cant quite remember) folders. Patched it contains 13 folders and works correctly with starforce.

Sources to buy a copy:
Ebay (ask Val for link) for DISK versions (unclear about version and legitimacy)
gamepitstop.ru http://gamepitstop.ru/descr/301/ for version 1.0 DISKLESS
$9 from yuplay.ru http://yuplay.ru/story.php?title=Xen…BE%D1%82%D0%BE version 1.0 DISKLESS
and if you can find one within the CIS thats Boxed/Jewel Case/DVD case version 1.0 DISK
And most recently from GamersGate with poor quality English localization and probably not worth the $30 http://www.gamersgate.com/DD-XENUS2/xenus-2-white-gold version 1.0 (DISKLESS I presume)





HOW TO BUY from Yuplay.ru outline:

Find Xenus 2 White Gold on site

Hover over price and choose MC/Visa option and select

NOTE: I have experienced a message in the buying process from yuplay.ru that says :
"Xenus 2: Белое золото" is area-dependent item. You can get it only if you are located in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Latvia, Moldavia, Russian Federation, Tadjikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan. If you are located outside of these countries, please click button "Cancel". Yes, I am located on the territory of of one of listed countries [] (check box)

Click the check box saying I am located in one of those countries. It has no affect on you getting your game or not. You will get your game.

Enter your information and let the transaction go through.

When you see a box asking you to put in the check amount for verification purposes, check your statement online or by phone (calling your credit card company) to get this sub dollar amount. You only have 10 days to do this plus limited number of tries before your account freezes!! It has to be in USD or RUB, so most likely USD if you use Credit card.

Once check amount is entered you will be given the option to download and an email is sent to you with your starforce key. The yuplay option to downlad is the fastest.

*NOTE* you get three activations and unlimited deactivations. So before you switch OS or reformat your computer be sure to deactivate the game (For slow people, this means you can have the game installed on 3 different computers at once, but you will have to deactivate it from one if you want to put it on another).

Wow, a BOX VERSION :) It will be worth 10 times that soon :)

Nice FAQ by the way - can we have one for Precursors too? (although too late for me :)

Don`t be afraid of yuplay.ru by the way - this procedure only sounds complicated, in fact it took me 20 minutes to buy Precursors from them, no fuss.

@HomerPepsie
Thx for a nice overview on this HomerPepsi, two thumbs up.

@Dark Savant
Nice CE you got there ;)

Do all versions have starforce?

guenthar August 3rd, 2011 13:39

The English version doesn't have Starforce protection.

PS. It is also $14.97 on Gamersgate right now.

Acleacius August 13th, 2011 09:16

Damn, missed it, thanks guenthar. Next time I see it on sale, I'll grab it.

That's all Wesp needs, me bugging him about another game. :p

I have it. I will upload it to filebeam when I get home.

slimeck October 22nd, 2012 15:00

thanks, man. I appreciate that. :) please write when you do.

oh, also would like to ask few more things :
1. I just realised that gamersgate sound files are gone too. dead links. does unofficial 1.6 patch take care of these sound issues in gamersgate version?
2. can you clarify which "diskless" version is better, I mean less problems with it? from yuplay.ru, or from gamersgate.com , and from which source it would be better to purchase it?
3. patch 1.1 diskless & unofficial 1.6 is all I need?

Im asking all this because the info on beginning of this topic is more than year old and what people write all around here is a bit confusing if put it all together…

HomerPepsi November 7th, 2012 06:07

Updated with new digital download patch link.

cheers!

danny_harris August 10th, 2013 10:58

Great FAQ by the way -would we be able to have one for Precursors as well? (despite the fact that past the point of no return for me :)

Don`t be apprehensive about yuplay.ru by the way -this methodology just sounds confounded, actually it took me 20 minutes to purchase Precursors from them, no whine .
