As I noted just now in the Derek's "Fallen Enchantress 0.98 Changelog" (the first URL high-lighted in Island Dog's Original Post, above), I found the Beta 5, available, about Noon today, Mountain Daylight time.
The download worked flawlessly; taking only about 3 minutes and 15 seconds to download, and perhaps another 2 minutes to Patch. That would make this the quickest, smoothest, Update that I have downloaded, up to this point. Nice!
Upon running it, my attention was immediately arrested by the New (or restored ?) Opening Animation:
"The World of Elemental is devastated ... broken by a War of Magic ..."
Looking Good !!
