And a hotfix is now available for the issue I mentioned in my previous post.

For those of us that have plugins ... somone was kind enough to quote the post where the above link points to:

This has now been hotfixed.

Reminds me how me and the guy on Steam that we work on the same game together have a shared dropbox folder with the latest builds on it, and I accidentally forgot to turn off the automatic output_log.txt thing making itself every time either of us launches the game. It's got PC specs in it, so we got to laugh at each other's hardware choices (nVidia vs AMD scenario emerged).
I think Unity has a world domination scheme going on with that file, seeing as it evolves itself to spread more and more personal information without even the developers knowing.
Failing that, they just resort to infecting the internet with the horrible, horrible hack that is their networking, making all otherwise stable connections time out without any reason whatsoever, crippling pretty much the entire web without any way for anyone to do anything about it but the Unity guys, who of course will just resort to calling it a "future Unity N+1 improvement" for 4 years only for it to turn out to be just the same crappy deal with just a fancier wrapping.
Having system specs in a log file is fine .... personal info not so much.
What happened here is no fault of Unity ... it was the game fetching data from the paradox/collosal order servers when checking to see if they can allow you to use the DLC stuff (that everybody has on their pc btw) or not and inserting that data in the log file.
Always online BS, unwanted tracking and unneeded collecting of personal info
Anyhoo issue fixed, for now.
I can see again too, without getting a migraine from here till Tokyo. Woot
