I Preloaded this last saterday, with a DL of some 580MB (though it says that there is one 600 mb file and a 1.4 gig file in the folder.)

now Steam says I can play as soon as its unlocked, Is there any thing I have to DL before I can play (like last min updates, filles that have'nt be deliverd yet ect.)

or is it like it says I can play as soon as its unlocked?

You can play as soon as it is unlocked. I'd suggest leaving Steam running 30 mins prior to the unlock, just incase they release any last minute tweaks(doubtful).

On teamspeak Yoshi said something about having to download maybe 50-100 megabytes immediately prior to unlock-ation. Probably thirty seconds of impatience before you can play.

humm so I have a DL rate of only ~25kb/s so thats looks like an hour DL for me. wich is no problem compaired to the 600MB DL of the "preloade"

there was an update a few days ago that was fairly large,,, still cant see any executable... I'll hazard a guess at the executable and perhaps a few other files to be downloaded before play can commence.

I got a little question as well.

do we have to restart steam right after 2pm in order to get it to update like in the old version? or does this newer version of steam update and unlock games without the user having to touch it?
