I have never ordered a expansion pack, or a videogame for that matter beside a free test demo, from the net before. I am using a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4034 Laptop and a wireless signal from Turner Cable/Belkin modem here in the US. I was using a better laptop (that one could play Medieval Total War and C&C 3, this one cannot and just barely plays SoaSE if I have the details for the enviroment turned way down- you only need to know a planet is there for gameplay, not how pretty it is- my better, newer laptop conked on me so this is what I am stuck with.)
My concerns are: If I order the expansion pack Entrenchment, and the other ones expected out, will there be a processing issue for whatever reason where I cannot play it? Secondly, will it just consist of me clicking 'yes' and it does all the hardwork itself- like when I buy a exansion pack from a store- or do I have to fidure out what expansionfiles go where? Do I have to burn a seperate disk for this to work and not use the Sins disk I bought at the store (Kain's Wrath is like that- you don't use the older disk for the expansion pack- so I end up with a bunch of disks for essentially the same game). My computer does have a RW DVD drive, but I never, ever have used it, perfering thumbdrives, and am a bit nervous about trying to burn a program off the net to it. If this is as simple as hitting accept from my email, and watching a progress bar run across my screen, and it doing it all itself without me having to burn anything, and not changing the dynamics of the game engine to a point where it will no longer function on my laptop, then I will certainly buy it ASAP- cause this is definetly the best game focusing on real time Jomini style 'Grand Tactics' out there, period. Ihave studied military strategy since I was a kid, and this comes closer to testing the mind more than any other game I have ever played before.... and the price of the game and expansion packs are very reasonale. Just I don't know much about computer technicle stuff, and am nervous this is going to flop somehow and I won't be able to play even the old version after I try without uninstalling everything.... and I refuse to jeopardise my space pony trophy, you have no idea how hard it was to find that.
