Don't delete or edit any files we install, that includes .txt files and other things. If you do, you'll have to reinstall everything from scratch.

I am suffering from the same issue. I started the download and the update had an error during the installation, now it says that I am unable to install, because I'm on a different version. Please help.

We patch the files, it doesn't detect version from any particular file. If the files are missing or have the wrong hash (md5 I think) then it will fail. This is the only way the installer can work, we cannot patch unknown files. The .NAM files are safe to delete, no others are.

This also assures that people don't alter what we did, because it wastes our time chasing ghosts when people break stuff and come to us for help.

As far as I can remember. There is no file that defines a version.
The installer will look at all the files and update them if necessary. If a file is missing or is different from the previous vanilla TTW version, the installer will detect a problem and say your version is not the right one.

Roy already said that if anyone deletes any TTW files, they will have to reinstall TTW if they want to update. :(

EDIT: Roy just ninja'd me :lol:

I can't share the 3.2.1 files because I'm on 3.2.2 myself. So I don't have the previous version files.
Sorry. :(
