Tower of Fantasy – How to register an account and download the OBT client of the game,


Tower of Fantasy, a new multi-platform sci-fi action MMORPG, will launch on December 16 in the Chinese region. Since the preloading of the client became available last night, in this article you will find detailed instructions on how to register an account, download the client for various platforms and launch the PC client (trust me, there are small dances with tambourines).

registration

Pretty simple and you only need a mobile phone number:

  • Follow the link to fill out the form and in the window that appears, click on the red button, accepting the user agreement.
  • In the upper right corner, click on the blue text to switch the form to “foreign users”.
  • Fill out the form – if you filled out the field correctly, a green checkmark will appear to the right of it.
    • From the list to the left of the first field, select the region of your mobile number, for example, for Russia we are looking for a line with +7.
    • Enter the mobile phone number without the country code.
    • If the number is available for registration, a captcha will appear at the bottom – press the button and then move the puzzle into the hole.
    • After confirming the captcha to the right of the field below, click on the button to send an SMS, from which we enter the code into the field. In my case, the text message came pretty quickly.
    • The remaining two fields are reserved for password and password repeat.
  • After filling in all the form fields, click on the green button at the bottom, after which a small window with Chinese text should appear at the top of the browser (I used chrome). Click on the button in the window and you should be transferred to your personal account page.
  • To complete the registration in your personal account, you just have to link your mail, verify your identity and change the nickname to a normal one. In the gallery below, on one of the pictures, you will find which menu items are responsible for what.
    • To verify your identity, you need to enter a Chinese name and ID. Since the generators of random data do not work, on the forum in the second post I leave a list of working IDs, which I took from the European discord group. After filling in two forms, “enter” the captcha.
    • To bind mail, you need to enter the mail, “enter” the captcha, click on the “send confirmation” button and enter the code from the letter.
    • The nickname changes on the personal information page: in the only field, completely delete the default randomly generated one, enter your own and click on the big orange button. If you see the message “修改 昵称 功能 维护 中 , 暂不 可用.”, Please try again later.
  • That’s all. To enter your personal account, you can use the phone number + password (number without country code) or enter via SMS by phone number.

Download and install the client

Following the latest Asian trends, Tower of Fantasy is available as a multi-platform game on PC, Android and iOS. You can download the client for the first two platforms by simply downloading the files from the links below, but to download the iOS client, you will need a Chinese Apple ID (you can check if the public account is still working from this article).

  • PC launcher – tyk.
  • Android APK file – tyk. Weighs over 1.7 GB.

Installing the client on Android does not involve any difficulties, you will need about 6 Gigabytes of free space (APK file + game). After installation, you can safely delete the APK file, run the game and wait for the update. My download speed was quite good, 10-15 Mb.

Let’s take a closer look at the PC client installation:

  • Run the installation file and in the window that appears, click on the gray button on the right – this will allow you to set the place where to install the game launcher.
  • We are waiting for the installation to complete and in the window with two items remove the checkbox from the first – the option to automatically launch the launcher when the computer starts. We leave the second one – this is “Add a shortcut to the desktop”. Click on the big button to complete the installation and launch the launcher.
  • In the launcher, you can immediately start installing the game by clicking on the huge blue button, but if you, like me, like to store all game files in one folder, you should do the following:
    • In the upper right corner, click on three stripes and then on the gear, thereby opening the launcher settings.
    • In the first category, the 关闭 界面 时 item (second from the top) is responsible for the behavior of the launcher when you click on the cross: the first option is to minimize to the tray, and the second is to completely close.
    • In the second category, in the first paragraph, you can change the path where the launcher saves the installation files, and in the second, where the games are installed. By default, it creates the download and games folders in the main disk partition where it is installed, even if it is itself, say, in the Games folder. If desired, change the path to your own and delete the old folders.
  • The launcher will first download and install the base game files, then a small update. The speed reached 27 Mb +.
  • For some strange reason, my launcher opens only if I run it as administrator. Otherwise, it hangs in processes for a short time and then closes.

Launching the PC client

And now we got to the most interesting thing. For some very inexplicable reason, the Chinese developers have changed the way of logging into the PC version for the OBT version, added some unpleasant dances with a tambourine through the use of a mobile client. If after the start of the MBT something changes, I will change this paragraph, but for now you have to crank the following:

  • I only have an android phone, so let’s start from it.
  • Download, install the Android version.
  • In the window that appears, click on the right orange button, thereby accepting another agreement.
  • We are waiting for all the updates to download.
  • After that, in the login window that appears, put a check mark and at the bottom we poke at the tiger’s paw icon (second from the left). If you do not check the box before this, it will give an error.
  • We enter data from the account that we created at the very beginning. Click on the big button below and wait for a successful login.
  • Once on the main screen, launch the PC client.
    • At the first start, I got a message about the need to install some third-party components. I pressed the left gray “cancel” button and this message did not come out anymore. Whether these components are needed or not, I do not know.
  • We are waiting for the client to download a few more additional files, after which a window with a QR code will appear in front of you.
  • We return to the Android version. On the main screen on the right, poke the QR code button (second from the bottom), if required, give the application permission to use the camera and point it at the QR code of the PC version.
  • If successful, a page will be displayed on the mobile phone where you need to click on the blue button, confirming the login to the PC version.
  • The Android version remembers the account data and automatically logs into the account when you start the game. The PC version, unfortunately, cannot do this, and each time you enter the game, you will have to do dances with a QR code.
