I have bought this product two time already. Once when it first came out. Then the black-out edition. Is this in one of them as an update? Or will I need to buy it again?

Thanks in advance for your response.

Hi Andrew, thanks for purchasing the original. If you have downloaded the last update then this will not be new for you and you will not need to purchase it. There was a minor continuity correction to remove the word Bureau in reference to the SIB. We are releasing this product with all corrections and errata added for new customers and retired the old product listing. I do not anticipate any further changes but we wanted to make sure everything meshes with our upcoming release of Ashdown: The Hydra Sector. Thank you again for your support.

Andrew, a few of the purchasers of the earlier editions experienced the same confusion over what we are doing with the new 2020 product update edition. To remedy this we have just sent a courtesy copy of the 2020 update to all previous purchasers of this product. You should receive an email invite from the site to download the update which should be listed as (Product Name) 2020 courtesy copy or V20 in some cases. Thanks again for your support and sorry for the confusion.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
