Miles(Redist) version inconsistencies
This thread appeared a while ago, and as most issues that appear on this forum I assumed it had been read by some developer. However, it doesn't seem to have received much attention. Having checked the suggestions forum on this issue without finding anything, I decided to "forward" it here.
The thing is, with a clean install + 1.08 update the mss32.dll is version 6.6g, but the drivers are still v6.6c. The user supplied file in the thread mentioned above updates some of these files to v6.6g. In general, I believe that version inconsistencies is a bad thing. On the computer I'm currently using, it appears to have resolved the crashes near Mt. Olympus / Typhon. Also the sound seems richer, but that might be my optimism fooling me. The sound card is a Soundblaster Live! Value.
I think that either incorporating the 6.6g drivers in the next patch, or at least supplying them as a separate package, could do a few wonders for some issues people are having. At least I can't see how it could hurt.

We are considering including the updated drivers in the next patch. If we do that, those that have manually "updated" the Miles drivers by pulling them from a different game will have to revert back to the old drivers for the patcher to run properly.
