Trailer WILL appear to play 1 hour later than expected

Daylight savings was this morning, so anyone affected should now be an hour ahead. I checked the trailer countdown, and found that no changes were made due to daylight savings. What this means is the trailer will be released in the same amount of time from now even if there were no daylight savings, but will appear to be released 1 hour later than expected. So for example if you're on the east coast USA like I am, originally the trailer was set to be released at 6:00 PM, but now will be at 7:00 PM.

I know, very detailed explanation there, but I just want to make sure everyone understands that it won't launch at the originally expected time.

I don't know. I still think that within minutes of the trailer reaching zero, the trailer will be made available.

haha i'd love for it to be an early april fools. Then I'll be seeing 'OMFG ROCKSTAR U SUK ASS' everywhere

I expect when the trailer does go up, the server will be having lots of downtime or it'll be very slow.

@phreak, Could be, but I'm going to have two windows of it open at the time, constantly refreshing one and letting the other hit 00 00 00 00 and then refresh that one.

The thing is, the countdown is based off your computer's clock. If you change you clock closer to the release time the countdown will say only minutes are left. Still means daylight savings are confusing for this.

I wouldn't be suprised if you set 10min before the end of the countdown and it actually showed the Link rofl.

Ah, I see. Well in the end, just make sure you check the countdown a few hours before it ends to know when exactly it will end.

By the way, I changed my clock to the time the trailer launches, it just starts over at 00 24 00 00

I'd guess they just going to flip flop the Index file once the time has come for the trailer

From what I know, I'm thinking the trailer will be released moreso on the workday than the actual time the countdown says. Because when the countdown ends it doesn't just load up a trailer. Someone has to upload it and change the index file so the trailer displays, so it would be more practical for the webmaster to do this when it is convenient during his day instead of at a scheduled time.

In short, be ready for it at any time plus or minus a few hours on the countdown.

I'm pretty certain it's 11:00am in NZ (Jimmy). DST comes into affect this week I believe, so we're GMT +12 again

MEANING it's one hour earlier for NZ.

When they put up an actual countdown for a trailer, I'm pretty sure they won't rip anyone off. They'll stick to the scheduled time I'm sure and upload the trailer very shortly after the counter finishes.

Seeing as how busy the server would be, someone should save the video, and post a mirror of it here. Anyone think that makes sense? (Also, changing computer clock does not help)

Yeah I posted earlier in the thread that changing the clock doesn't do anything It resets the countdown to 24 hours left.

I plan on converting (if the trailer is in the flash .swf) and uploading to YouTube or something.
