the update from what I hear is okay, not looking forward to downloading twice for no reason... need to be able to download a proper .exe or something... means both me and my brother download a large update when if I just downloaded it it wouldn't be hard to flick it to him if it was an .exe. My only major nit pick for this game.

what card are you running? ati are about to get decent drivers for this game in the 10.4 driver ones. You can pick them up in beta/hotfix ones atm but I don't touch them prefer to wait till proper release if I can.
