MotoGP 08 Installation Warning

Pwn or Die Blog has news of an issue with the Windows edition of MotoGP 08. Owners of the just-released motorcycle racing game are warned not to change the default directory when installing the game. Problems caused by changing the default installation location are not specified, but the warning is reminiscent of a problem seen more than once over the years where uninstalling a program with a buggy installation routine from a custom location could remove other files from the system. A patch is promised over the next few days to correct whatever issue underlies this warning. Thanks Mike Martinez.

I remember the good old days, when uninstalling Half-Life took out 75% of my Program Files directory before I killed it. Nice.

Probably patch the uninstallation program, I guess.
