I compared the previous Windows offline version (setup_mirrors_edge_220.127.116.11.exe) with the current version (setup_mirrors_edge_1.01_(40566).exe) and found the following main differences (some already mentioned):
- added new languages: LOC_CHS, LOC_CHT, LOC_JPN, LOC_KOR
- removed language setup (exe, ini, png)
- added maps with extension umap with the same file name as existing files with extension me1 (\TdGame\CookedPC\Maps for folders Menu, SP00 to SP09)
- added video file containing white asian characters on black screen (\TdGame\Movies\HealthWarning.bik)
All files including MirrorsEdge.exe in the folder \Binaries are identical (goggame-1893001152.dll got removed).
All files in the folder \TdGame\Config are identical
About the maps folder
I noticed the new maps with the extension umap not only have the same file name, but are also about the same size and in some cases also identical to the ones with the extension me1. I don't know if they were supposed to replace the me1 files with the umap files.
\TdGame\CookedPC\Maps\SP00\TT_TutorialA01_p.me1, 2.809.798 Bytes
\TdGame\CookedPC\Maps\SP00\TT_TutorialA01_p.umap, 2.810.296 Bytes
The Maps folder in the new version 1.01 is about 7GB tall and umap and me1 files are each about 3.4 GB.
I deleted all me1 files and had also to delete the user config folder (%USERPROFILE%\EA Games\Mirror's Edge) to avoid an error message about corrupt config files.
A started a new game with the training course, Apart that the speech was gone (sounds were still were) I didn't notice any differences.
