Just curious what benefits one by buying the retail version versus downloading from the main site. I don't see that any graphics changes or special items for the purchase. I just don't understand the purpose of this, nor have I seen anything explaining it. The game is still downloadable off of download.com and their main site. Accounts are still free to set up, and those who have accounts already still have em.
For me, I havn't played the game in a little over a year since the tech support guys can't figure out why every time I download it and try and run it I get the Run ShotOnline.exe(shot_n_01) as the game loads up to the log in screen.
