Hi folks, just bought this game and d/l. The installer breaks down into 4 items - one application and 3 files. I installed the installer application (v100.0)which was 3.3gb. what are these other files?
When I click on them they don't do much. they are 681mb, 681mb and 249mb. they are titled v100.2, v100.3 & v100.4. What are they for before I just go straight into the 2.14 update.
I've clicked on the application and it seems to be working so do I just go straight into update 2.1.4?

Hello, teddy, welcome to MWIF.

I think that the other files are just 'support' files needed for the installer to install the complete game. So after the installation is complete then it is straight to updating the game to the latest official version.


Edit: But beware that I often has no clue what I am talking about.

Thanks Orm, I'll just go ahead and do that. If someone knows differently then it can get uninstalled and re-installed
with new directions. No probs.

The installer uses those files, they are not individually required to do anything. You should be able to proceed to the upgrades.

Thanks paulderynck! I followed Orm's advice and the game seems to work fine. Thanks for the clarification though!
