The frequency of fixes/updates is awesome, but is there any chance you could focus on fixing that updater next week? Having to DL the entire thing again and again is... rather annoying.

Probably already answered question :

Is it normal that I don't upgrade automatically ?

Specs
- Direct download from website (portable version)
- I'm connected
- I checked the option in settings to update experimental

"About" always says I'm up to date.

Thx

Pretty sure they are having technical difficulties with the autoupdater, so it is disabled for the moment.

It's really a bad place for it as the only people who read it already know about it. Everyone else just sees the release, skips the changelog and wonders why the updater isn't working. :/
It needs to be at the top of the post so people don't get confused.

You don't HAVE to DL anything. It's not food, water or sleep.
Wait for the stable release if it bothers you.

I think you're wrong. Factorio IS sleep! As Factorio goes up, sleep goes down, thus Factorio is a valid substitute for sleep! Who needs sleep when you've got Factorio? I think you need some shut-eye ;)

They might not like cherries. They did like the bag of dicks though.
