Obviously you wont know for sure till much later, but in the closed beta builds have they been getting a lot bigger?

Honestly, I expect the Final release to be around 700-800MB

I actually thought you were asking "How Big is ESF:Final gonna be?" as in "Is ESF:Final Gonna be awesome?" and I was going to say "**** YES, THIS GAME MAKES MY DICK ROCK HARD!" (I'm exaggerating about the dick part) And to your first question, yes it has gotten quite bigger, I'd guess somewhere in the range of 800MBs~1.5GBs, then again that's just my guess

We honestly don't know yet, we won't know until we pack the installer at the very last day before the release etc.
The current inteam is around 3gb I believe, some stuff might get deleted some new stuff might be added so we honestly can't say yet.

3gb is a lot. But nothing that people can't handle. Wondering about what you said "the day before the release"... Won't you test the installer for bugs as well, my knowledge of installer packaging is non existent, but with NNK several people had to re install until some of their bugs were gone.

we will certainly test it for bugs, and if we find some delay the release obviously, that's also one of the reasons why we won't release a release date.

Of course they test it for bugs.

But new bugs always pop up on systems the Team don't have :p

I very much doubt ESF: Final will release and NOT need hotfixes up the arse. :p

I guess it's safe to assume that the installer will be at least 1Gb in size.

@argoneus:

This isn't just any HL1 mod though! They've done things to the engine that would make Valve shudder and shake their heads in sheer horror.

The actual release probably won't be that big. SVN almost doubles the file sizes of things.

Its available through SVN only for the Devs themselves. It will be an Installer for us.
