    EU portable install

    I think this was discussed several years ago, but this type of information gets obsolete very quickly.

    Wondering if anybody managed to set up the EU client as a portable install, e.g. something which can be run from an external HDD and moved from one PC to another. Any ideas or suggestions in this respect? Thank you.

    Take care,
    BBB

    Pretty sure I did this with a standard HDD. Just completely uninstall from your PC, install and select HDD as directory. Ran it this way on a PC I only had a 100gb SSD in, and after about 2hrs, decided to clear space on the SSD for EU since performance on the portable was terrible

    Years ago when i didnt had internet connection at home i instaled entropia on Sony mp3 player (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-NW-HD5.../dp/B000934N2E) and i used it to play game in internet cafe.

    My guess is you could do similar thing with external drive

    Sorry, I fear I was not clear: “portable” in the sense that you don’t need to run installer on each PC you want to use. You just double click on exec file and there you go.

    Im a bit confused now but if i understand you correctly you want to have a game on external disc and just plug it to any pc and run game without instaling right?
    Thats exacly how i used it, game was instaled on mp3 player and i just had to connect it with usb cable to any pc and run game.

    Did you start the client simply clicking on the exe file? Which folders did you copy to the external support?

    no he is talking about bypassing the client loader to save bandwidth. for instance, at a cybercafe with 100 pcs. bandwidth, like the stuff MA should be concerned with, you know, when people have to rerun the loader after the clientloader crash near the tail end of the download.

    We are not yet understanding each other about the expression ‘portable’. This is what I mean when I type ‘portable EU’:
