Well, I have the game installed to my hard drive, but I do have My documents
(the saved games & such) out on a server. I had to map it to a drive
letter; the game can't handle UNC names apparently (which is dumb...).
Also, I'm using offline file storage, and find that it's best if I sync and
then log off the network before I play or else I have massive lag, and,
weirdly, it'll make thousands of 0Kb files!
