New Arvoch Conflict

The Arvoch Conflict Website now features a new version 1.828 of this space combat simulator. Word is: "The focus of this update is an all-new multiplayer system designed for better router support and improved performance." As usual the update serves as a trial version as well as an update for older versions. Here's the detail on the multiplayer changes: "The new multiplayer system lets players join without having to manually forward ports on most routers and connecting is much faster. The game's instructions and the FAQ provide additional information on using the new multiplayer mode."

And that's a reasonable answer. Cheers.

I was of course presuming that most of the download size was taken up by external assets.

I do still think that 25MB is on the large side for dial-up users, but given your explanation I can certainly understand the significant advantages of releasing updates in this fashion (or perhaps, the significant issues with doing it any other way!)
