Activations?

So, just out of curiosity, how many activations are we entitled to with each Episode?

And what triggers them? Uninstalling an older release and installing a new one? A plain reinstall? Or does it write itself on the registry and only a fresh new OS setup would pop it?

I need to know because I'm reinstalling Episode 1 and adding Episode 2 in a more organized directory structure. Previously, I thought they would all go into the same folder, so I never bothered with say "C:\Games\Rain-Slick\Episode X\" or whatever.

I also reinstalled the game every time Greenhouse made available a new release of Episode 1. (I really want to know why they couldn't just release smaller patches instead.)

Basically, I just want to know if I already blew a few of them on trivial stuff.

I initially posted this inside the DRM thread, but I doubt that one's being checked lately.

    Reinstalling does not count as an activation. There is technically no limit. The system will stop after a while and give an error at which time we ask you to email customer support. We will have no problem resetting it unless their is blatant abuse of a given license.

    Regarding patches, given that there are sometimes fixes both in data and code, we feel it is safer to deliver a complete tested and compressed package.
