Did THQ's lack of copy protection make GSC Game World angry and decide to switch publishers for this release or something?
All I know is that the dispute messed up support for the original game, which is why the Steam version is 1.05 and most people are running the unofficial 1.06 patch - that means Steam users can't play online. There's some crazy workaround that involves getting the serial key from the registry and installing a pirated version of the game, though that's too much effort for me.
