I see I don't have it so I don't know lol it might work if you disconnect from the internet. Worth a try if you are that desperate.

I pre-ordered from Amazon and entered the code they gave me in on Origin, I have preloaded everything and I still haven't gotten any email. D:

Has anyone ordered the digital copy from Amazon today? I tried a little over two hours ago and it still hasn't went through. Says "Sorry, processing of this order is taking longer than expected" and says up to 2 hours to process but usually within an hour. It's been 2 hours and 20 minutes now and nothing. Haven't received any emails or anything, not even saying I ordered or an invoice, etc. I wonder if this is typical since they may be getting hammered with orders or something else is wrong? Pissing me off that I can't at least start my pre-load.

So I am playing Battlefield 3 right now thanks to some posts on reedit. My gtx 580 is doing a pretty good job at full settings. If you want to join in the fun and bypass the BS release date check on origin then do the following :

Close Origin and Firefox/Internet Explorer
Open Control Panel
Internet Options
Connections
Lan Settings
Use this IP as a proxy in your settings
203.232.208.116 Port: 8080

Bypass launch date checker. Battlelog will open.

Enter Origin, go into settings and change to Offline Mode.

Launch Single Player.

Alt-Tab, go back online by changing your LAN settings to Automatically detect settings.

Enjoy!

@The guy who had problems with his amazon order. I just ordered from the EA store directly and it still hasn't gone through and it's been about 1 hr or so maybe more so don't fret. I'm sure they are getting hammered by last minute purchases We'll get in soon enough.

I have to ask again though since no one answered me previously. Since we pre-ordered the game we get access to the expansion right? Is the map available with the release version of BF3 or will it be released at a later point?

Ok, thanks, that gives me hope at least. I may just cancel and re-order if it doesn't go through within the next hour. As for the expansion, we get the expansion, yes, but I'm not sure if it is available right now at launch or at a later date.

Do NOT cancel and reorder. Mine took like 4 hours to come from Amazon.
