Reminds me how Ali G was wondering why ATF are using dogs, instead of dolphins, who are much smarter.
There is currently a "non-scene" working release available on torrents and such. Basically someone repackaged the game (manually done some tasks that installer should have done automatically) in a matter of hours. Question is: why do paying customers get to wait for the replacement "plan" to be put together? Why isn't there a downloadable fix put together by developers? Clearly it doesn't take much time to make.
