UC: A World Apart Patch Glitch

3000AD sends along word on a glitch with the initial release of the version 1.00.03 auto-update for Universal Combat: A World Apart. Here's word on the problem, and the updated update, which does not iterate the game's version number:
Yesterday we released the v1.00.03 patch to the public via the in-game patch Updater. We have since discovered that an incorrect character asset was included in the original game distribution. This would cause one of the Instant Action scenarios (IA0113) which uses that asset, to fail upon loading.

To this end, we have re-issued this patch today and corrected this problem.

For those who have not yet updated their version, running the in-game Updater will download the new version.

For those who have already updated their version, the steps described in the v1.00.03 section of the recently updated version control file show how to force the Updater to re-download and re-apply the patch.

We apologize for this error. Hope you are enjoying the game as much as we enjoyed developing it.

Again.

unlike some people who are much bigger assholes than me, i care about how my personal views tend to reflect on the company and those i work with.

I didn't say it would reflect badly on the company or associates, even though i do consider my personality inflammatory. However, i don't want to take any chances. Regardless of my actions here, there's nothing stopping anyone from calling up my workplace and causing me problems, regardless of whether what they might say is true or not. For example, there's nothing stopping me from calling Buckeye Technologies now and telling your boss that you raped my sister, and have often had sexual relations with dogs and other small animals. Oh, you're also a convicted drug addict. Now, i won't do this, but i could -- and i could pick a much more sinister, convincing topic. By using the advantage of anonymity i can avoid any possibility of this happening -- whether they'd take the caller seriously or not, it causes disruption in my workplace, and it would be completely my fault for giving out that information. Therefore, i think you're pretty damn stupid for giving all that out. Enormously stupid, in fact. The anonymity of the internet is a priceless tool, so if you choose not to use it, that's your problem. I certainly don't give a shit what happens as a result.

I just don't wish my own personal views to be applied to those around me, as they so often are on the net. Are there other people working in Derek's company? Yes. Do you think anyone actually considers that, or do you think that they associate Derek's actions directly with the games he takes part in creating? It's not commendable that Derek acts like a giant fuckwad with no regard for others. It's disgusting that he is as selfish as he is. Perhaps, if he acted in a different manner, his games might sell more copies, and his development associates might be more well off. Are there people out there who will never buy a(nother) DS game due to how he's treated them in the past? Yes. I guarantee you, there are a lot. Perhaps thousands. Derek hasn't exactly made a lot of friends throughout his career in development. An excellent example of this is right here, in this thread.

Oh, nice try at deflection though, John. You'd be a good politician. Take the focus off of Derek and turn it on me, make me the issue here and not him. Admirable attempt. However, i am protecting the company i work for and my workplace standing by exercising discretion. Derek, on the other hand, is not. Call my choices cowardly, call me afraid -- again, label it however you want. I call it smart, and really, i couldn't care less what you think of me.

Eagerly awaiting your next deflection,
random.thought
