Thanks BW and team. Your quick response to fixing problems is what made Book 1 so exceptional and it continues...

Downloaded the "Update" via Impulse and found the "Update" to be larger than the original game...LOL!

Well, I must give you my congratulations for that Version!
All those nasty bugs that made the game nearly unplayable (freezing game when leaving a dungeon etc.) are gone.
Since now I had a bug free gameing experience.

Hope it stays that way.

BW's "updates" are newer versions of the complete game file, so they should be the same size or larger.

Each new version will open old saves. Depending on the types of errors you may have been having, sometimes opening old saves perpetuates the error, while starting a new game fixes it. I believe that with his soon-to-be-released 1.03 version, as it modifies the save files after opening them, this will not be the case (or at least that's the intent of having 1.03 save in a newer format that is not backward compatible--can't be opened by pre-1.03 versions of the game).
