Quick question,

With the imminent release (possibly, maybe)of the patch, has any indication been given as to its size.

I ask this as in varying differant forums the size of the beta(leaked) is increasing by approx 20mb with every new version.
Now, as they say, size matters and for some poor peeps on 56k connections any kind of a large file will take the proverbial month of Sundays to download.

I am aware that Jackal (gaffer of www.flying-legends.net (http://www.flying-legends.net) )was toying with the idea of burning to disc the patch and charging P+P plus disc costs to aid in this problem.

Any info would be usefull.

It all depends on the size of the hole the patch has to cover!

A couple of months ago Oleg stated that the download size would be ~110 mB.
It might be bigger though, because 110 mB seems insufficient to include several new maps and planes. My guess would be around 200 mB

How long will it take someone like me on dial up to download the new patch?

"2 weeks"
