    I just had a little update (0.8Mb for game, 1.7Mb for SDK).
    I assume this is a hotfix. Anyone have any details?

    The version number is still 383, that was what it was before as well, right?

    Edit:
    Hmm... That's not a lot (but at least it's something). I would think the hotfix would contain a bit more, the Korea-exploit for instance.

    Haha, came here to post this. Shame the patch isn't bigger.

    Haha, that's good news though. I think I "waited" for a half an hour one time. Derr.

    A hot-fix is just a quickly-deployed solution to a severe problem. I'm sure they've already said another big patch will be forthcoming when it's ready.

    If they keep the schedule they've had until now (a patch every two months) it'll probably be somewhere in october, maybe november for the real patch.

    Depends on their schedule for DLC, as far as I see it. Seems that patches are used to hype coming DLC.

    They can hype all they want, but they have already overplayed the DLC card. They'll need to man-up with an major expansion if they want more money from me.

    In answer to the OP, Steam says

    " "Please Wait" hang. There can be certain situations where an automated or sleeping unit is activated by the presence of an enemy unit. When this happens, the "End Turn" button incorrectly displays "Please Wait" rather than "Unit Needs Orders", giving the player the appearance that the game is hung. This has been corrected."

    Actually I'm assuming there'll be a DLC in october as well along with the patch.
    They, more or less, had this pattern up until now (although, personally I'd rather have monthly DLC).
    --------------------------------
    I guess the Korean exploit of selling science buildings and buying or building them again will be addressed in the patch instead of a hotfix.

    I think I've had that bug affect me before. I'd just get confused waiting before finally realizing that I had a unit waiting for orders.

    I'm glad they hotfixed this, it's really annoying.

    Finally!

    Thousands of Korean and Japanese lawyers will sigh in relief.

    Corrections to Korean and Japanese legal screen functionality

    what does this mean? does this involve the actual game play?

    Sorry, I was trying to be sarcastic. It is probably safe to say that the changes to the legal screen will not affect anyone.

    I've had the end turn affect me a few times and it's really annoying, so they can count one happier camper.

    I think that legal screen fix might have to do with how Oda has a black mark on his face sometimes in diplomacy, but they might be referring to a completely different thing that I have no idea about.

    I think it refers to the copyright screen. The one popping up before you enter the main menu after starting the game.

    Offtopic:
    They should fix that too. Make an option 'don't show this again' or something.
    A very annoying screen and unnecessary (Civ5 is the only game I know with an obligatory screen like that).
