**&color(green){Updated July, 12 2009}; [#z93d0a5a]
updated for patch R6x series
~&color(red){&size(14){NOTE: ES3.00 R series CAN be installed with LOD 1.11, and 1.11b, but it is a 1.10 mod. This means no new Uber quest, no special keys, no special torches, etc. This version of ES doesn't care which version of vanilla LoD you have, as long as it is v1.09+. Properly installed, you can still play the latest version of Vanilla on b.net or ES with no conflict (as long as you don't try running both at the same time, that would be bad.)};};
