My bad ... I didn't know that it was dependent on Steam, sorry. My version of Dawn of Discovery was a digital download through Impulse.
FYI ... I opened a Steam account and posted a message thru their Tech Support requesting to know when Steam was going to release the Dawn of Discovery v1.3 patch to its U.S. patrons. Steam's response is that they have released all of the patches that the manufacturer of DoD has made available. Not sure what the deal is?
