Can anyone who downloaded Shadow Magic confirm that they are able to run UPatch updates and mods smoothly?
I don't have the CD any more, I want to buy Shadow Magic for online play but knowing that nobody plays vanilla anymore, I don't want to buy it if the patches and mods don't work with a non-cd copy.

I might have to change my view of GOG.com after all. I'm trying to use their downloader instead of my browser and I keep getting an error message while attempting to download Arcanum: Of Steamworks & Magick. Not cool.

Apparently GOG.com is closing???
If you go to their site, you get
Dear GOG users,
We have recently had to give serious thought to whether we could really keep GOG.com the way it is. We've debated on it for quite some time and, unfortunately, we've decided that GOG.com simply cannot remain in its current form.
We're very grateful for all support we've received from all of you in the past two years. Working on GOG.com was a great adventure for all of us and an unforgettable journey to the past, through the long and wonderful history of PC gaming.
This doesn't mean the idea behind GOG.com is gone forever. We're closing down the service and putting this era behind us as new challenges await.
On a technical note, this week we'll put in place a solution to allow everyone to re-download their games. Stay tuned to this page and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates.
All the best,

Great - well that bug Beren mentioned was in the AoW1 forum, not the Shadow Magic forum...need confirmation that it works for Shadow Magic!!
To make matters worse however, Gog.com seems to be closing? And Impulse still doesn't have AoW2 or AoW:SM available yet...
Has anyone who downloaded from GoG been able to make the mods run smoothly?

Yeah, good job GOG. They closed their site with no warning, and right after putting the AoW series on there. I've seen a lot of terrible business practices online but that's right up there with the worst of them.

They're coming back up today, although it looks like they hit a snag. Dumb move on their part with the pr stunt.

All three games are now available on impulse. It is easier to apply 1.4 (and 1.5 when available) to impulse, steam or gog version ?
