What patch are you talking about anyway? As far as I know, people reports on forums the game crashes, most of the time because their graphics card is not up to the specs requirement on the sale page, there isn't really a need for a patch. From my understanding, the upcoming patch fixes some actual bugs in the game which were reported after launch and it is brilliant of the developers to provide one that quickly, but I haven't noticed any bugs which require on patch and had no problems whatsoever with the game so far...
what I don't understand is why they make the patch distribution so complicated to begin with. Why add this extra step in the distribution process?
As long as I can remember I got the patches for my games from the publisher/developer not from the place where I bought it.
Understandable exceptions are systems like steam where the game is distributed in a modified form to fit into their drm-system. But apart from steam Cities In Motions is completely drm-free, so it doesn't really make sense that each distributor has to publish its own patch.
I have a lot of sympathy for the small dev. team that you are and it is obvious that you have put a lot of effort into CIM.
You are, however, making a bad business decision by not realising the patch - you have customers who cannot play the game (while others can) and you are holding back a patch which you have (since you made it).
Dont need the patch to play the game. Works fine for me at least.
The patch is going to fix some bugs (which you may not even have noticed or heard of) but it is not going to affect the gameplay afaik.

That being said I love the challenge too.
Oh ok. Didn't catch that one Either way, I sure hope it doesn't get too easy
We have contacted Games Planet about the DLC and patches, so it shouldn't be much longer for these issues to be resolved.
How about kicking gamersgate in the butt and get out the 1.0.11?
Are gamesplanet at all distributing patches etc ? have two other games brought from them no of them have any of the patches released for those game made avaible.
Seriously no answer to the question of just posting the patch to these forums?

Hey guys. I promise we are working with GamesPlanet to get you the DLC. They are aware of the problem, and have been. In the meantime, you can download the patches here.
