Hi,
I noticed the sha1sum of
http://www.longbowgames.com/downloads/Hegemony%20Philip%20of%20Macedon%20Installer.exe
changed recently. I'm a bit paranoid, but was that expected?
Are there release notes where we can hear about updates?
Thanks!

Wow, you're on the ball.

I didn't announce this update, because there's no noticeable changes. In you're interested, here are the changes:

* In demo mode, the up-sell screen now says $19.99 instead of $29.99.
* The game has been recompiled with the latest DirectX redistributable (some new DLLs because of this).
* For Steam compatability, a couple new command-line options have been added to deal with the sound cache.

It's perfectly safe to ignore this update.

Thanks!

it checks sha1sum on download. See http://wiki.winehq.org/wisotool if
you're curious.)
