More on Anachronox & Win2k

To follow up on the stories yesterday (here and here) about Anachronox and Windows 2000 compabitility, ION Storm programmer Brian Eiserloh updated his .plan file again saying the bug has been caught but it turns out all OSs will benefit from the fix.

QA is beating on the patch now. It takes them a while to do a complete playthrough. The instability was being caused by an extremely subtle and devious buffer overrun in the filesystem code. Win2k tends to be more sensitive about this, which is why the bug was more apparent on that OS. This means users of ALL OSes should download the 1.01 patch when it becomes available (probably no sooner than friday night):

Also updating his .plan is Jake Hughes who says the team is trying to ready a demo for release tomorrow, for those wanting to try before buying.
