+ Prerelease N-Gage version - Download & installation guide

06 February 2008

Installing the Pre-Release Version
of the N-Gage Application!

Nokia World ’07 - N•GAGE desk

Here is the step by step guide that will help you to download and install N-Gage Pre-Release Version 1.0 that is originally published by the official Gage Arena Forum.

There are two possible solutions for downloading, a complete package for those with the good connection and the same package separated into 4 zipped archives.

First one with an application and additional three game packages: Space Impact: Kappa Base, System Rush: Evolution, Hooked On: Creatures of the Deep.

When you first use the N-Gage application, you will be prompted to create an N-Gage Player Name and password, and provide an email address. This will be your temporary First Access Player Name that will be valid for the duration of N-Gage First Access. It is only used on the device. It is not linked to your forum name (if any), and your forum name will not work on the device!

N-Gage Player Names (created on device), N-Gage Points, and N-Gage Game Ranking will only be valid for the duration of First Access. Once First Access ends, the N-Gage databases will be reset.


OPTION 1 - Broadband Bundle

The broadband bundle includes the pre-release version of the N-Gage application, three game trials and detailed instructions on how to get started. Of course additional games will be available through the Showroom within the N-Gage application.


N-Gage application + 3 game trials (58.6 MB)


OPTION 2 - Separate Downloads

Download the N-Gage application, and choose additional game files at your discretion. You can also download the games later, either over the web or through the Showroom on the device. NOTE: You must have the N-Gage application installed first in order to install the game trials or download additional trials over the air.


N-Gage application (required)(6.3)

 


Space Impact: Kappa Base (11.7 MB)

 


System Rush: Evolution (13.2 MB)

 


Hooked On: Creatures of the Deep (28 MB)

* NOTE: Block Breaker Deluxe is also available for download through the Showroom within the application.


STEP TWO
INSTALLING THE N-GAGE APPLICATION AND GAMES

The following are step-by-step instructions on how to get the N-Gage application from your computer to your device. First, you'll need to download the N-Gage application to your computer, and then you can transfer it to your device.


METHOD 1:
USING PC SUITE
(PC users only)

If you do not yet have PC Suite version 6.84 or better installed on your computer, please click here. PC Suite is a software program that will help you easily install the N-Gage application, and the games, on your device.

  1. Start PC Suite on your PC.
  2. Connect your device to your PC using a USB cable.
  3. Select PC Suite Mode in the dialog box on the device.
  4. Click the Get Connected button on PC Suite and follow the on-screen directions to enable the connection to your device.
  5. Click the Install Applications icon on PC Suite.
  6. Follow the on screen directions to transfer and install the N-Gage application (.sisx) file from your desktop to your device.
    *** Be sure to select 'Mass Memory' or 'Memory Card' from the drop-down menu when choosing a destination on your device. ***
  7. Start the N-Gage application on your device by clicking the N-Gage icon in the Applications Folder.
  8. Now you are ready to install the games. Double-click the N-Gage game file (the .n-gage file) on your PC, and follow the on-screen instructions.
  9. The on-screen instructions will remind you to have the N-Gage application installed, and prompt you to finish the installation on your device.
  10. With the N-Gage application running, install the games to your device's mass memory or memory card. (NOTE: If you own the N81 8GB, your 8GB of memory is displayed as the memory card)
  11. Complete the installation and start the game.

NOTE: You may need to attempt this process several times; see the KNOWN ISSUES section, below.

NOTE: If you encounter the error "Application can not be installed to the device. Not enough memory available." during PC Suite installation, this means you do not have enough free device memory to begin with. Please free up enough device memory to proceed, or use the Mass Storage / Data Transfer Mode method of installation, described below.


METHOD 2
USING MASS STORAGE / DATA TRANSFER MODE
(PC and Mac users)

  1. Connect your device to your computer using a USB cable.
  2. On your device, select: Data Transfer or Mass Storage Mode (refer to your manual if you do not know which Mode to use to transfer files). Your device should now appear on "My Computer/Finder" as an external drive or removable disk.
  3. Copy the N-Gage install file (.sisx) from your computer to a folder on your device's mass memory or memory card (such as the Other folder).
  4. Disconnect your device from your computer.
  5. From the File Manager application on your device (under the Tools menu), navigate to the memory card tab. Open the N-Gage install file to start the installation process. Follow the on-screen instructions on your device. It may take several minutes or more to install the application, so please be patient. You will be notified when the installation is complete.
  6. Run the N-Gage application once to verify it is working.
  7. Now you are ready to install the games. Re-connect your device to your computer using the USB cable.
  8. From your computer, copy the N-Gage game file (the .n-gage file) to the N-Gage folder on your device memory. This folder is created the first time you run the N-Gage application.
  9. Disconnect your device from your computer.
  10. Start the N-Gage application on your device by clicking the N-Gage icon in the Applications Folder. The N-Gage application will detect your games and prompt you to install them. (If you are not prompted to install the game, use File Manager to open the game install file and start the installation process.)
  11. Complete the installation and start the game.

NOTE ON BLUETOOTH: It is possible to install the N-Gage application using Bluetooth, however the games will not be recognized. We recommend you use PC Suite or the Mass Storage Method to install your games, as described above.
