Hopefully someone can help with this, but when every time a new version is up, i just simply run the installer again, and pointed it the directory of where I have the previous alpha version, and so I assumed it overwrote the files it needed. I run the game, and everything looked good as I continued to play over the weekend, so I'm just wondering is that ok to do?

Or should I always uninstall the previous alpha version, before installing the new one?

thanks,

The installer will add and replace old files but does not remove anything from previous installs. Up to this point that shouldn't cause any problems but there is a chance that could change in future updates.

ok thanks for the future versions I'll just uninstall, then reinstall.
