The dialog will give the Version number. This is probably simplest.
* Right-click on Zillions.exe and choose Properties from the popup
menu. Switch to the Version Tab and choose "Product Version"
from the list.
the "p" at the end matter?
it matters as to which updater you should use. However, in terms
of features, the number is the only thing that matters, i.e. version
2.0 and 2.0p have the same features and bug fixes.
the updater overwrite new rules files or bitmaps I have added to
my Zillions directories?
The updater is smart enough to leave alone any files it doesn't
have modified some of Zillions' standard rules files. What will
the updater do?
updater doesn't want you to lose your work so it will not make any
changes if it detects that the files in the original install of
Zillions have changed. In this case, we recommend you do a fresh
install of Zillions from the CD and then use the appropriate patch
on that new install.
you downloaded the 2.0 installer from the web and don't have it
any more, you can download 2.0.1 installer from this website, rather
than using this patch. Write down your unlock key information, then
uninstall 2.0, then install 2.0.1.
the update change any system files on my computer?
This update only makes changes in your Zillions of Games directory.
