How do updates work in this game.
« on: January 24, 2012, 03:49:04 PM »

How do updates work in this game? Is it like minecraft in which when you boot up the game it asks you if you want to install the new update or do you have to reinstall the newer version of the game?

So far it has been a re-download and re-install situation at each new patch, I expect that may change as the game draws nearer to launch.

This thread may be of use to you.    ;D

Ahh I see. I was also wondering do we just have to check the anouncements page to know when a new update has rolled out. I cant wait for new things to be added. :)

I hear ya, 0.5 is gonna rock!  :)   But yeah, Alex will have a post on the Anouncments thread right away when 0.5 is ready for downloading, personally I think the preview version of 0.5 will be ready for downloading at about 02/15/2012, but that is just a hunch.   ;D
