Do these 3 gigs of data completely rewrite the gaming code, or are these updates for installing a new game from scratch?

1) AA 3.0.5 currently takes up X amount of space. The 3.0.6 update adds another 3GB of data on top of that.
2) AA 3.0.0 to 3.0.6 is a 3GB download. All game data.


(And you guys have been doing a great job with AA3. Keep that highspeed stuff up.)

Great news!

I can imagine the DL speeds may be a bit slower for the next couple days but should speed back up after more people have updated. Can't wait to get home from work and get mine started!

Thanks devs! Much needed guys (and gals) rock!!! Cheesy Grin

But we in it shall be remember'd;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother...
