It's about 500 mbs right now for the single episode patch. That's probably around where it will stay. Unless Austin decides to add a second full blown soundtrack very last minute. And that would be bad. Actually, no, that would be very good. But I don't think it'll happen.

Just curious: the episode installers are MSI files, which is fine, but have you looked into whether EXE files would compress the contents better? I don't know if they would or not, I'm just asking.
Of course, I realize that there may be other reasons you're using MSIs as well.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

The ep3 patcher is an exe. The full build is an msi. Doesn't really make any difference

Is the time of release known yet? I hope it is released in the afternoon so the European fans (like me) can start playing on the 17th as well...

We haven't set an exact time, but I imagine afternoon EST/PST is more likely than not.

Me too. We don't want to have them crash in the middle of downloading. Which is why we're not announcing a specific time just yet. We want to ensure all the servers and mirrors are in tip-top shape.

Currently we are still working that part out. We first want to make sure that everything is in perfect working order on the servers and mirrors before we commit to a specific time. That being said, it will most likely be in the afternoon, EST.

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying the release of Episode 3.

I want to say that poem is familliar from somewhere (except the last line) but my knowledge of literature is minimal. I can write well, but I honestly couldn't care less about "famous writings" or what have you. That being said, that poem sounds something like Shakespeare.
