On a Windows system, in the Main Game load screen, if you press the v-key, you’ll get the contents of the skuversion.txt showing the last installed pack’s gameversion. Not really so helpful now that only the base game gets updated, though. Pity, that.
EA should change and update this feature to show the base game’s version instead, now that only the base game gets updated. And while they’re at it, implement the same thing for Launcher’s screen, the one on the left Tab menu section. Would go a long way in clearing up confusion, in my opinion.
Well, one can dream… 🙂
[Update Jan 8, 2013]
Seems the v-key now reads base game’s skuversion.txt. Should I be grateful or worried that EA reads my blog? Assuming, this change was triggered by this post, maybe they were already working on it?
However it came about, I’m grateful for the change. So thanks, EA! Credit where credit’s due, after all.
