regarding patching

i am assuming that the game does a check to see if the latest patch is installed before starting up.
but the thing that bothers me is that usually the latest patch notes are not shown.

if stalker has this system i would really apreciate it if the developers make it so that the patch notes would be desplayed along with the notification that asks if its ok to download the patch right away or later.

and since i am already touching the subject of a patch will we see free content in patches like say a new weapon ?
codemasters did this with operation flashpoint giving free vehicles and weapons with every patch.

it would be really nice to see new content in a patch as it turns the usually negative experience of having to download a big patch to fix little things you probably didnt even notice into a positive experience as you get some free content.
this way you can put in new weapons like say the FN-fal or G3 and the community loves you for it.

im certain this aproach to patches helped increase the popularity of operation flashpoint and certainly its lifespan.

In the beta if you go in the game options menu there is a button to click to check for patch availability automatically. It could be different in the final version, though I'm sure it will still be there.

Nah it just says that there are no new patches available. I can't say if there are notes because I've never had to d/l a patch, and it looks like I won't either.
