REQUIREMENTS AND NOTES
You can update your installation by simply running the Installer again. It will only download files that are out of date.
The Installer requires an internet connection to install. This is because:
1. It checks to see if it is out of date by pulling the number of the most recent version off of the web.
2. It automatically takes you to the download page of the most recent version if your version is out of date.
3. It makes sure all the files are up-to-date.
This Installer SHOULD work on top of an old self-installed FreeSpace Open setup, but I don't take any responsibility in the unlikely event that it screws up something.
The Installer now includes a Derelict option. However, if you installed Derelict yourself, you may need to stick this
into your Derelict folder to make Derelict work with this Installer.
