My game has stopped loading, saying something about locked assetts.

I've installed BtS and the 3.13 patch half way through playing this game.

I've tracked down the changed files, reinstalled it all from scratch and took a copy of those 5 files, then copied them back when I needed to play GoTM. Looksl like it works :)
