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!

Do we still have to apply the windows 7 specific separate patch, or is this already included with the recent release?

I think I remember hearing that it's already installed, so you don't have to worry about it :)

If you've already applied the Windows 7 patch, you shouldn't have to do it again.

1) Yes, you can (I did). You can also start directly from Episode 2 if you want.
2) I think they'll release a smaller file containing only Episode 2 + all the changes applicable to Episode 1 as well (running, subtitles size, etc...)
3) Yes (798 MB if I remember right)

I suggest you to download it now, there's no need to wait, unless you have a slow Internet connection.

So are we.  I'll try to get an update to you guys sometime this weekend.

UPDATE:  This is turning out to be more complex than we originally thought for a variety of reasons, not the least of which being how much data we actually modified within Episode 1 and how complex it is to patch in just the modified bits without having to replace every file completely.  We're going to need at least another week or a little longer to get this thing working the way we want it to and get some testing in, sorry for the delay!

sounds at this point like it might just be worth it to suck it up and download the huge file.  after all, it will still be faster than waiting another week and will have the same effect in the end.
