Again, I apologize for advising any downgrades to any video games on any systems, but I hope you're willing to let me slide just this one time, just because this particular rollback doesn't destabilize this particular game any. Thank you and you're welcome.
We've been selling v1.1 since Oct 5, 1994. I doubt anyone would still have the v1.0 builds anymore, even if we were inclined to do something like that.
