    If you don't want to be in a huge queue on release day, you can start your pre-load of F1 2011 on Steam. Just checked and my EU version is downloading as we speak :)

    Oh didnt see that thread :)

    Anyways my pre-load was done in a few minutes after a super speedy download :) #lovesteam
  4. Pre-loaded!!!!!!
  5. grrrrrrrr
  6. got mine too, loaded in 30 min at 5MB/s! (recently upgraded internet from 10Mbit/0.5Mbit to 50Mbit/3Mbit)
  7. Cant wait to tomorrow night(well actually early tuesday am) when i fire it up and start turning laps in anger!:cool:
  8. why is it unlocking at midnight tomorrow when the release date is listed as Sept. 19?
  9. Not sure where you saw the 19th...this is what i have right now:

    A day and 3 hours from right now (well when i took the screenie) is midnight tomorrow..
  10. make it 23 hours,I'm not gonna get any sleep 2morrow night.I'll try to keep it to 2 hours after it unlocks :rolleyes:
  11. It should unlock shortly before I get home from work. One of the few times working evenings has its advantages.
  12. why would steam let everyone else have it early when the game is officially released on the 23rd? something tells my the Steam Staff got it wrong.

    EDIT: Steam has corrected their mistake.

    [h=1]Available: 23 September 2011[/h] This game will unlock in approximately 3 days and 15 hours

    so don't be thinking you'll get it before the 23rd.
  13. Yesterday lunchtime IIRC my Steam said it unlocked in 4 Days and 11hrs, which to me roughly means 00:00 Friday - but I am UK, so maybe they are giving it to USA a few days early so they can get some practice in before the Europeans show them how its done :D :D :D
  14. Amen to that, americans are use to ovals only really :p
  15. If I remember correctly, didn't it take like an hour to unpack the 2010 version once it was unlocked?
  16. Dunno - downloaded 2010 from Steam on the day (as I had planned to get it on disk in the shop) and it was D/L'd and playing within 30 mins for me.

    I was looking at the 2011 folder and it seems the data and folder structure is there, but the XMLs are encrypted. I looked into the G27 actionmap as I was gonna add a 'look to apex' mod and the XML was unreadable.
  17. Just checked - my Steam still says 22nd (Germany), so 2 days, 8 hours as of now.
  18. It all depends where are you - I'm from Poland, I'm gonna get game on 23rd.
  19. So true this is what is says for me in Canada, oh and that practice thing only goes for the states cause I am a Dutchman eventhough I live in Canada :tongue:

    Available: 19 September 2011

    This game will unlock in approximately 11 hours

    Question will steam dl additional files for F1 2011 and will it then install the game ? I have no idea first time user with steam.
  20. In the U.S. games and media are released on Tuesday.
