Well worth the D/L, by the way.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

I believe this is the Matrix Games (boxed) only version of the patch. Be careful not to load on certain international (Russian) versions at the very least. Without the right version of this patch the game will crash constantly.

The Matrix Games version has an <Update> option as well that the other versions don't have. If yours doesn't, don't install this patch.

There is reports that the downloaded (English) version of the game has no serial number to that's needed for this specific patch. Buyer's report no Serial Number at the website or account they used either.

I had to enter my original game S/N to activate the patch. I used the update feature, which grabbed the correct version of the patch for me.

Sean Drummy, Matrix Games Marketing and Press Relations Manager, has also made the patch available for the Matrix Games version of UFO: Extraterrestrials as a seperate download. He did this for those who may have installed the game on a machine without an internet connection.

Patch for Matrix Games version only

If you don't have the Matrix Games version or a Matrix Games Serial number don't bother downloading the patch through the link he provided as it will not install on your game. At the time you apply the patch it will request said serial number.
