I would estimate a few days before anything is done. We always like to test these patches :D

hopefully find a de-installer back to patch 1.61, that should save you the problem of doing a full reinstall. IN the past, Bioware has published one along with the patch simply for convenience of everyone.

Just posting the most interesting fixes/features of 1.62 patch for the players:

Fixed a few bugs where the contents of your inventory would suddenly dissappear.

Added more emotes to the emotes menu (Read, Drink potion, Meditate, Worship, Sit on ground, Fall down forwards, Fall down backwards).

Fixed a bug in the encounter system that would cause 1st level creatures to be spawned in once your character was above 20th level. This change affects all modules that are NOT the official campaign.

There were a number of problems with the calculations to attack bonuses for Melee Touch Attacks. These have been fixed now.

Reminder: when we update to 1.62 we'll let you know.

I like this new feature as well:

-Added support for adding and installing custom .tlk files.

- Custom talk tables now work in multiplayer games. If you don't have the module's required "*.tlk" file in your "tlk" directory the module wont load and you will be given an error message telling you that the tlk file is missing. This behaviour is the same as for Hak Paks.

Avlis always waits a week or so before updating. That way if there is some major bug we can choose to stay at our current version if the bug is serious enuf.

Fighters do it face to face, Rogues may do it from behind, Rangers can do it from a distance, Wizards do it from out of nowhere, Clerics may not do it at all, Barbarians may do it in a rage, Sorcerers can do it on a whim, Bards on a note, but Paladins have to pay for it!

There are still several localized versions of hotu unreleased in several countries. Maybe we should make a poll if all are ready for Hotu to check the Hotu coverage amongst avlisians

The HotU hold-up has been two-fold.
Custom talk tables not working in multiplayer (fixed in 1.62).
And my updated versions of the hakpaks that will be HotU and 1.62 compliant.

The haks should be ready in several days now that I have the 1.62 2das, but theres still a few issues I have to work out yet.
