    Patcher suggestion

    It's already been mentioned elsewhere that making the patcher password protected might be in the best interest of the game, but along the same lines, I'm wondering:

    Does the patcher check for DirectX capatability? Or does the game simply assume that since there was a DirectX installer in the game package, that people would run it rather than bypass it?

    If it's not checked, it might be a good idea to implement. Just to be sure that people actually install what the game needs.

    From the Xsyon update sticky thread.

    I think what Mr Bob was talking about is having some sort of launcher that you first have to authenticate through before the download begins, be it a patch or a full download.

    I suggested that elsewhere and wanted to mention it but not beat a dead horse here.

    I did indeed mean to request exactly the directx verification that was actually quite clearly indicated in Xsyon's notes hmy:

    My suggestion would be to readd the "Y of X gb downloaded" feature, I hate not knowing what Im downloading and how much is left.
    We have cool new forums... Y~A~Y

    Its there, when it is downloading an entire file.
    There is the high level design of a gameplay mechanic. Then there is what everyone does in spite of it.
