Matt Wagner, Producer/SSI, made the following announcement this afternoon at www.flanker2.com
Given the large interest in the Flanker 2.5 upgrade by consumers unable to access the 80-megabyte download, we have joined forces with Electronics Boutique to distribute the Flanker 2.5 upgrade CD with existing boxes of Flanker 2.0. This low-priced bundle of approximately $20.00 will contain all the contents of Flanker 2.0 including the original V2.0 CD, a complete V2.5 CD, and the manual. We expect this to be available at EB by late March.
Given this extra time, we have included new training missions and an installation option that will enable owners of the earlier versions of 3Dfx Voodoo graphics cards to access higher resolution textures. We will also use this time to create an option to download the Flanker 2.5 upgrade as a group of several smaller files versus the single, large 80-megabyte file.
Although the V2.5 upgrade will be available for purchase with the boxed Flanker 2.0, we have every intention of making the upgrade available as a free download. The free download will not be made available until shortly after the Flanker 2.5/Flanker 2.0 bundle is on store shelves in late March. Thank you for your patience.
