(Move this if needed, but without further ado)

With all the word on CMANO updates, I can't wrap my head around as to why the game on Steam hasn't kept up with the versions I see the forums. Could anyone tell me as to why? Thanks.

Doing a steam update takes time, sticking a few files in a zip is pretty much instant. Plus sending out a new global update on Friday is asking for trouble.

The zipped updates do work if unzipped over the Steam version.

To add to Rory's explanation, that's the same reason why the Matrix auto-updater is often behind the zipped forum hotfixes.
