Re: D'oh! GalCiv II: Dark Avatar/Gold updates through Stardock Central Only...
In article <[email protected]>, [email protected] says...
Stardock Central basically being their version of Steam, or rather,
something a bit more invasive. Back in the GalCiv 1 days, I used it to buy
the expansion for that, and it really screwed up my computer.
Nope. Not invasive. There _may_ be an option somewhere that makes it autostart
but mine certainly doesn't. It doesn't start a number of mysterious services
that remain orphaned, it doesn't change my homepage, it doesn't leave dozens of
icons all over the place. It starts when I click on the icon in my custom
startbar, asks politely which games I want to update after logging in, and
shuts down when I tell it to. No nasty behaviour whatsoever. Sure, it had bugs
in the past (like screwing up my login details each time I bought a game with
it), but I haven't found one lately ...
