Double Edit: I'm not hosting the file for this torrent anymore as it's been over a week and Xbox players are now free to set up a Japanese account and download the demo there. I went through this whole hoop because there originally wasn't a downloadable demo out there in the wild so if the torrent is still up and running, it's due to the benevolence of the Anarchy Reigns community.
Edit: This is for 360 users if this isn't clear. Assuming they don't want to wait it out and see if the Gold this weekend works for demos.
If this doesn't work, I curse Sega, Microsoft and everyone else who ever started shit with me.
Alright, so the files are done uploading. I really hope these came through alright because uploading these things takes WAY too long:
Here's a BitTorrent link in case anyone wants to try that route.
(This method seems to be the most reliable way of getting the actual file so far since apparently the file sharing services seem to be giving off ridiculous download times. At least with this torrent, there shouldn't be any fear of the download dying off and having to restart the whole process. And obviously please help seed if you manage to get through the file. It should also go without saying that this version of the file is not zipped)
Alternative: Rapidshare(haven't heard of anyone successfully downloading the file this way)
Alternative: Minus(haven't heard of anyone getting the file this way either)
So, download the files. Unzip them(if there's anything to unzip) and they should collapse into a single file. Now, the thing to note here is that the file that gets unzipped needs to be put into a bunch of layers of folders.
So how it goes is that the first folder needs to be named "Content". Inside the Content folder you need to create a folder called "0000000000000000". Inside THAT folder needs to be a folder named "53458864". And inside that folder needs to be yet another folder named "00080000". And inside that folder is where you place the downloaded file.
End game should look like this:
Once that's done, you take the overall Content folder, burn it to a CD/DVD and you're done. The demo should show up in the demo section of your account once you pop the disc/drive into the 360.
Alright, 360 USB guys:
First, you want to format your USB drive on your 360. So make sure you don't have anything important on thsoe thumb drives. It's a pretty simple procedure and Microsoft has some instructions
in case you don't know how to get to that.
Next plug the USB into your PC and, this is where we get weird, get this program up and running.
What you'll want to do is click "File -> Open Device" and the program should automatically find your USB stick. This is denoted by two little dots that pop up.
If you have a fresh reformat, you'll want to click "Inject Folder" and inject the "Content" folder that I outlined needs to be built in this post.
If this is a usb drive that you already use on 360 and isn't a fresh reformat(i.e. has gamerpics or dlc or whatever already on it) you'll already see a Content folder and in that content folder will be the "0000000000000000" folder. All you'll need to inject is the "53458864" folder part that you built and inject it inside of that "0000000000000000" folder.
WHAT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE is that the program may seem like it's stalled when you click "inject folder", but trust me, give it 3 or 4 minutes to work. The little bar at the bottom doesn't move while it's working, but you'll know it's done when it instantly goes all green.
And this all DEFINITELY gave me a working demo on USB.
