hmm.. I didnt patch it, I just purchased the gold Version today from Ubisoft and was going to install it now: according to the information on the golden Version, it includes the DLCs 1-3 and the new one 4 that can only be enabled with patch version 1.12 (from 4th April 2011).
Strange, although the release date of DLC 4 (included in the gold version) is, according to Settlers 7 Gold Edition Ubishop page, 4th april as well as patch 1.12, there is no reference to it at all in the Ubisoft patch page
Maybe the postponed the release of the DLC 4 and patch 1.12
I will install it and report. Where can I check the version of the game? because it autopatches itself like all other Ubisoft games.
I also just read in the Ubisoft Forum that some ppl got their game updated yesterday (16th april)
as promised here my report. I installed Settlers 7 Gold edition and it seems that this DLC 4 and patch is not available yet although announced to have been released on 4th April on Ubishop S7 page. The maps were still not available in my Game (only DLC 1-3).
I don't know where I can check the game version.
I played a bit around with the campain and I noticed that the actual trainer was not working properly in my version of the game. For example, when I pressed add gold or tool or stones, it added something else sometimes. I don't know if this is normal in some of the chapters of the campain though or if this is because I have the Gold Edition (but for what I read the Gold edition is the same as the normal edition but with all DLCs unlocked).
