Zip file for 1.7e is empty?

When I open the zip file for the 1.7e beta, I show no files or folders inside it whatsoever. When I attempt to do a full extraction, Windows 7 gives me an error saying the file is invalid. Anyone else running into this?

No, I had no problem with it.

I did notice however that there was an extra level of folder in it than usual. There was a top-level folder just named '.' (dot), and I had to drill down into that to get into the 'BRPG_v1_7e_Patch' folder, and from there into the two folders which say 'Put contents in....'.

Just went in and double-checked for that and I don't even see that.

I've accessed prior patches for Battlegrounds before without trouble so reading zip files in general isn't the issue.

Is this an issue with the Full Install, the Patch, or both?

Izzy was using the patch. I had to send him the files one at a time. Not sure if he tried a full install.

ThinIzzy, and anyone else who had trouble opening the original zip file for the BRPG v1.7e Patch should download the attached file. Let me know if it unzips properly for you this time.

If it turns out that this fixes the issue, I will post this in the main v1.7e download thread (replacing the original zip file).
