New patch for MOO3

Which doesn't work with the old one, apparently. Bullocks.

Quicksilver has released an official beta patch for Master Of Orion 3, weighing in at 5MB, which improves the game's interface, enemy AI and - perhaps most importantly - its Alt-Tab behaviour. Unfortunately for fans of the game, the new patch is incompatible with the old patch, presumably meaning some sort of reinstall. We say "presumably", because we were unable to extract the file from Quicksilver's troublesome FTP server (but by all means have a go), and the installation instructions are cunningly secreted amongst the zip detritus. And although we have no particular problem with FilePlanet, where the zip is mirrored, we'd lost interest by that time.

You can find a full list of changes betwixt patches old and new here.
