Soon... Mmm... I remember 'soon' in the 3do dictionary
I have probably offended you in this post. if you take it too harshly, it's your own responsability. I, for my part, never intended to.

August seems too long a time for something as crucial as a map editor. Ouch!

Yeah, I'd like that too... Gives the battle an extra strategic side.

Probably not.Because we all know that everyone knows that 'w' is the shortcut.Even those that never heard of heroes before.

A segmented network is a network where computers are organized into smaller networks (segments) so that computers in a segment can communicate with each other directly, but computers in different segments must communicate through a gateway.

39 megs is nothing.

hate to be a basher but for this game 39 megs is not "whoamg big AND unnecessary".

I feel for people with dial-up though.

With dial-up 39 megs is about 8 hours with dial up.8 hours of phone call isnt cheap at all.The patch should be free for all the fans,right?And considering that it wont fix everything,and that there will be at least one more(my guess is at least five)of the same size,that is quite a lot.
