Check HERE (http://www.eidosinteractive.com/support/patchinfo.html?ptid=76) for the fix list and the patch.

At present I don't have word on whether you can use this patch for Beach Life, but I hope to find out and will post here when I have the scoop.

[edit - hmmm, looks as if our FTP server is abysmally slow to download at present...but it will, eventually - GM]

How comes the english version of the patch is smaller in filesize? I hope it contains all the same tweaks/addons etc!

Just a little more info.

The Spring Break patch will will not work on beach life.

There is a seperate patch for Beach life on the UK website as mentioned earlier.

Also please note that once you apply the patch for Spring Break your saved games will be gone. :(

Rats! I was about to win level 8. Now I need to start over again. I wish the patch added more builders cause now my guys will be doing alot of over time.

The simple answer - because there are differences between games we publish in the US and games we publish in the UK. Exactly what differences? I dunno...I don't have a copy of Beach Life here in the US!

If you have BEACH LIFE you need to download the patch for the English (UK) version which is entitled Beachlife.

But if you have Spring break (US Version) then you need the US patch.

Im guessing you are using the US patch on the english game, hence the reason it dont work.

Download the english patch from eidosinteractive.co.uk and use that.

The version number appear in the top right of the menu screen ONLY when you have the patch installed.

You said you couldn't get the patch installed therefore you have no version number.

the patch that i got is uk patch for beach life .. 100 percent sure ..
still .. can't be updated... :(

i guess... i just play it without the update ...

Hmmmm I'm afraid I can't answer that then.... thought you were installing the wrong patch, but obviously not.

You'll have to wait til a "Eidos bod" answers this problem i'm afraid.

too bad .. i'm already in the final level..
would feel lazy if must start from the new level after installed the patch...^^
so...i think i'd forget about the patch :)
