Thanks!
Yep they're included. It's the same executable, and people who didn't buy Demon War just won't have the expansionPresent.txt file or the 1st 2 assets files for the expansion, so it works for both.

Welcome back Crisses -- haven't seen you here in a while!

I got the same message when I installed DW over DC, so I just patched it (re-patched it) to the new version and was off and running.

Basically to elaborate, I bought DC and played it for a long time, patched to the newest version, and played it more.

THEN I bought DW, and installed it

Got the mismatch message, installed the patch again (it was still on my comp) and it was good to go.

Axe, you've been had!

This is quite possibly the scariest spam I've ever seen (check out the signature, folks).

So, apparently, bots can now join a forum, copy a preexisting post (I'm assuming that's what it did), and append a signature containing the spam content.

Actually, on a second glance, this looks even cleverer than that. I see now, the first part of the message is spam, suffixed with a snippet from someone's forum post:

Spam: Good thread. I like the suggestions of the members. I want to ask one question that
Copied forum post: If I try to install DW onto DC, I get told I have a version mismatch.

Notice how in the second part, "If" is capitalized. The second part of the sentence is indeed copied from a post in this thread. The first part of the message has been tacked onto it.

Very scarily clever! Never seen a spam bot do this before.

Spam bots have been stealing quotes to use for a while now. It is funny when they use quotes from me though.

I probably wouldn't have caught it if I'd been current with this thread, but I read through the whole thing when it popped up as posted in and I instantly saw something off with what the bot said because it copy/pasted what that other guy said.

Well, that, and the row of spamlinks in its sig.
I just didn't want to be the guy that had to break it to Axe that he'd been fooled >_>

@Shadow: that sounds very amusing, though I haven't seen any of that yet.

Don't worry you are definitely not the only one that has replied to spammers.
