    Download the Elite: Dangerous Launcher directly here

    Hello Commanders!

    Many of you who have preordered the Mercenary Edition will notice that your order status is still set to 'Processing Pre Order' on the store. Please note, you will still be able to play the game, even if your status has not updated to 'Complete'. There should be a link to the launcher under 'My Account' on store.elitedangerous.com. But for fast access, here is a direct link too:


    http://hosting.zaonce.net/elite/Client-Installer.exe

    Once you have installed the launcher you should be able to login and play. If you continue to have issues though please let us know at support.elitedangerous.com.


    Thanks, Ashley

    Are the backer app gifts sorted now too?

    The person I bought a gift for got an email weeks ago saying they could access the game, but when they put in a support ticket saying they couldn't access it they were told they were not allowed as they hadn't bought it!

    Pecisk - "I will sound as broken record, but this won't change." David Braben - "So some news - we will be reversing this change shortly"

    What about the KS Starter Options, all I have is one commander with a sidewinder and 1000 CR with a Free Eagle on starting a new game. I cleared my save today especially to start with one of my options afresh only to find no options to be available.

    I should have these!?!

    ADDITIONAL

    OK so I've totally uninstalled the game and cleared out all my AppData, saved my bindings (of course). Now I've downloaded the original Beta Backers Installer get the new splash screen on the loader and now I'm installing the game, so we'll see if that makes a difference, although I think I grasping at straws, because I did this in Gamma 1 to no avail.

    I am still having problems. When I try to login on the launcher, it says to input a verification code. After I do this, it simply returns me to the login screen and says "You do not have access to Elite: Dangerous".

    I've written to support several hours ago, have however not heard anything. I want to play.

    you aren't the only one, there is a thread in the support forum about it, basically Frontier said we will have the Merc. Ed. bonuses by the end of the week.

    Frontier really need to make an official announcement about this.
