Don't I wish that were true! He's a wily one, I can see him blacklisting me and his mother-in-law just to spite us.
Ok, that's not really true. He's a kind fellow, but he likes to poke at me whenever he can. :ras

Wow, I must say I'm impressed by the exit screen.

Well, I've mastered the demo. Now I need to wait for my parents to get home in a few hours so I can borrow their credit card :( Looks great so far, though.

If I could do that, I would hit 'Play New Game' instead. :P

I'M ALREADY DOWNLOADING THE GAME.

Although I didn't think it was actually going to be released on April 1st. But now I've updated my CaravelNet and the download is at 38 percent. Wait, 42....43...

Let's see if I got what it takes to clear The City Beneath.

So, can someone tell me if imported player files on TCB retain saves and demos from holds that aren't currently in the list? I can't remember if that's been mentioned anywhere or not, and the search dialog isn't helping.

Don't worry, just grab hold of an Admin and don't let go. :) Preferably Schik, but Erik will do as well. I don't know about the others, but it's worth a try.

*sigh* That's going to make JtRH very frustrating to me when it becomes available for TCB. >.<

Wha...? Just import your player again, and again, and again - it'll import the demos for JtRH and other holds that have been newly imported.

Also, I would probably own this game if not for the clever 'we're not actually releasing it' thing. :(

I spent my money on other internet things upon hearing the news.

*blink* Wait... what? I can import my player over the one I've already got, and it'll add things instead of overwriting or making me have an extra copy of myself? I don't want to lose anything I've done since first importing, if I bring in my JtRH demos and such...

When you create a player file, DROD gives it a unique ID. If you import a player that matches the ID of one already installed, then DROD will merge the two files. SO yes, importing the same file again will update with progress from all newly installed holds and nothing else.

Yeah, what krammer said.

Of course, you can also just make a backup of your DROD data folders prior to actually doing that to be totally sure... ;)

Except that the "Export saves" step is unnecessary, as your saves are included in the player file.

Note however that that way you'll lose all the demos you had downloaded.

To not lose the demos it's enough to import your player export from JtRH, download all holds, then import your player again. You can actually import your export from JtRH as often as you'd like, as it's merged with your existing player.
