It might be best to keep the most recent change on the top and push past changes down. Also have the date of the update and version number at the top of the change log.
Edit: for anyone who, like me, missed it: There's a changelog on the GOG store page, and it appears to be more up-to-date, and in a better format, than this one.

click the game -> More -> Changelog.



Thanks for posting these!

It looks like you might be editing the first post and appending subsequent patch notes. Is there any chance you could post the latest at the top, with the patch version at the beginning of the message? It'd make it much easier for us to parse out where we are in this whole thing.

Alternatively, if you're pulling patch notes from somewhere else, maybe just share the link and we can go watch it ourselves.

Each new update is usually posted in a separate post. The first post contains the first two updates because they were made public here on GOG on the same date, and they fit in a single post. So, the last post of the thread will always contain the most recent update available on GOG.

The info about the standalone installers isn't part of the official changelog, I'm including it for all users who don't use the GOG Galaxy client.

Please note that I have no affiliation to the developer/publisher or GOG.
