Technology Change

A key change was made to the way the Classic Client handles animation data:

"Please note that this client is 336 MB in size. While this is a larger than normal patch for legacy clients, we have modified the system so that future patches involving animation data can be smaller. We apologize for this temporary inconvenience." - Robert Mull
