I'm using Vista (32 bit)DX9. I completely uninstalled the game a month or so ago, then later reinstalled it as a SP game only. I found a nice patch to help overide the games original updater (taking the game from 1.10 to 1.40). Problem is - the game quits while patching, having errors in loading/installing various files. I also noticed that after the initial try at patching - my "Updater" looks very much like the updater for the 1.35 patch (in other words, I think the updater is automatically installing as the latest, but the game files and launcher are still version 1.10)
I refuse to go online, re-register my game for online play, and then update that way. It does tick me off that Flagship has their online patches loading up fairly smoothly, but their SP game patches don't load or install at all (at least not on my machine).
Btw - prior to uninstalling originally - I had been playing tha Beta portion of the game online to get a feel for the game - and had several online patch updates. Now that I am only installing as a single player game - I can't get the first patch to load properly & completely at all. And of course, Flagship's Tech Support is wholly useless & incompetent & unable to help at all.
Guess that was $50.00 gone down the drain.
