Has there been an "official" condonation in respect of the leaked patch?

More specifically, is it OK (legal) to download the "leaked" patch?

I realise that this question has been asked already but there doesn't appear to have been a definite (clear-cut) answer to it.

I, too, would appreciate this being cleared up.

Hmmmmm, lets see;

1.) Oleg has onfirmed that 4.01 will install over 4.0

2.) CrazyIvan has set up a 4.0 bug notification thread in ORR as a sticky.

3.) People who post links to the 4.0 release canididate such as CheckSix are not having their post censored.

4.) BearCat99 has started threads about what you like in 4.0


So, hey, it's not officially official but it's not unofficially unofficial either http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Essentially, 4.0 is now acting as something that sections of the communtiy have been screaming for; an OPEN BETA.

It's running on HL, it's still being downloaded and as long as it's no coming off the 1C servers no-one really seems to mind.

To me, it's now legitimate to have 4.0. Think of yourself as an unnoficial beta tester. Act accordingly. If you don't like something, reason out why you don't like it, verify, test, research, test again and then report.

You've jut made it as a beta tester, congratulations http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

P.S. I don't have it yet as I don't have a functioning joystick.

This is strictly up to you: with its imperfections, do you want to try. Its worth it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I don't think it's going that well, take a look at how many bugs are in it!

(but apparently, they knew about them all the time) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif
