    So...how come we need to download 4.5 gb? We're basically downloading the whole game all over again. I dont get this.

      Is the official response but I still don't understand as I don't think ArmA 1 did this, but I wouldn't know as by the time I got A1 ACE had just came out.

      At least it's being worked on, though.

        Worked out well that the TG server was still on the old version all night that I was downloading the patch :D

          It's at times like these where I feel good about early buying the german download version.

          Steam is generally a great way to play games and such but the patches for every single game take FOREVER.
