Current BIG files

I’m getting back into HWRM modding. I just loaded up the game for the first time in many months. In the log file I get these errors:

Failed to Load Archive '..\..\DATAUPDATES\UpdateHomeworld2.big'
Failed to Load Archive '..\..\DATAUPDATES\UpdateHW1Ships.big'
Failed to Load Archive '..\..\DATAUPDATES\UpdateHW2Ships.big'
Failed to Load Archive '..\..\DATAUPDATES\UpdateHWBackgrounds.big'

Is this normal?

What is the latest game version?

Could someone please post a directory listing of the current vanilla HomeworldRM\Data folder for me? Thanks!

Yes, that is normal.

The current patch preview release (that I have) is:

I have wondered about this for a while… I guess the original game used those big files, but now they aren’t needed? Since patch 2.0?

Correct. all the update BIGs got rolled into the main ones.

I asked about this in a previous topic, and @BitVenom told me that the calls to those file were kept in case of future update (if any).
