Starship Troopers Patch

The Starship Troopers Updates Patch (thanks Frans) offers downloads of a patch for various language editions of the science fiction action game, helping wipe out some bugs to make it easier to, well, wipe out some bugs. Word is: "This patch updates the all European versions (English, French, German, Italian and Spanish) and the US version of Starship Troopers to version 4.09.10. Please note that this patch completely supersedes and replaces 3.2.77). This patch can be installed on top of any of these versions without uninstalling or performing any special preparations. Players interested in the multiplayer component of the game are highly recommended to install this patch. Please see the Read Me for full details."

"You forgot D) it required the general movie-going populace to be able to comprehend that it was a satire. "

Er, iirc it only became a satire because of disputes between the producer and directors. The satire was almost an excuse for the usless screenplay, terrible casting, awful dialogue, thoroughly lame art design, and the problem of having spent all their money on just the one special effect. Also they were satirising a book that almost no-one (these days) had read in the first place, which seems a bit pointless to me.

A Starship Troopers movie could have been great, better than "Aliens". But it wasn't. The plot was basically "more bugs" and some propaganda send-ups cut in to the middle.
