I never bothered to uninstall the original Alpha game (never got any glitches as others experienced so just let it go). So should I go ahead and uninstall first or is it safe to just update the current one? Honestly, I have no idea if it even points to the same servers. My guess is to fully uninstall and reinstall as I'd have my customers do, but you never know if something useful might be gained on trying an update first.

do a fresh install...

A while back, there was a post asking all users to delete Aplha, and Beta game clients... thus I think you should just uninstall and reinstall

Best to uninstall. If you don't, you run the risk of having older outdated files in the client that will cause issues, which will make it hard to troubleshoot and correct.

It should work fine, it is the same patcher just updated.

Yep, it SHOULD work fine. But, unless you have a VERY slow download ability, why mess with it.
I've done a complete reinstall of Alpha 13 times now. :) I wanna know if the issues I see are duo to the new code and not to some leftover code.
