No Asian languages? Arabic?

I suppose that most Asian gamers do online MMORPG though...

Thank you for the kind words.
These are very valid remarks. However, we're limited by the languages supported by Valve and by our own budget.

The update's pretty seriously huge (basically, everything's moved to a much more recent version of the engine) so it's not surprising there are problems. I've no idea what the plan was regarding savegames, but it might be best to start that particular map again. (Sorry...)

I'm looking into getting a patch out fairly soon - which should add things like fixed animated waves, working models for the globes and security signs, and Mac support. (Ohyes!)

Adam please make the update ...
I didn't enjoy Minerva for over a month now.

Update's still pending - I'll try and get it finished soon!

(Been spectacularly busy with other games stuff lately... ;-) )
