Demo Problems

I have a problem with the demo. Mainly arising rfom the fact that I have no Internet access. Yes I know this seems to be a contradiction, I can only access the net on the university network. I can't install things to thier machines and I have no network access in my room. Got the file onto a Zip disk, but can't run the game. Is there anyway round this? Will this stupid feature be in the proper game?

Thanks in advance for your help.

There is no way around it, since the demo you got has a security progy called ez-pad which requires you to connect to the net while playing.

However...Tommorow (hopefully) The demo will be published to the general public, on meny servers, hopfully without that security software which will allow you, me and countless others that got only grief from the previous demo to finally play it.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the darkness at Tan Hauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain. Time to die.
