Launcher is gimped.. I get the chinese error message when I try to run, and yes.. when I crossed the portal I was add-on free.
I can't load that character anymore as she is stuck in an unloadable state. I just reinstalled the Chinese client to get her out of the portal, then I'll try reloading with the English client.
I still think I'm going to need the US version '.exe's and the config file though.. or I just won't use her until the next update..
