NOTE: The project zip files do not contain the actual assets. You will need to first copy the original files from the CD and then extract these on top of the existing files. For smaller projects, you could just copy the /content subfolder from the original CD projects.
Some of these projects can be quite large and there is no need to waste the bandwidth. Plus, this also helps to make sure people actually have the book/CD before they get full use of the code files.
Also, the Xbox 360 solutions are not included. Fortunately, with Game Studio 2.0, it is very easy to create the Xbox 360 solution (Go to the Project menu item and select Create Copy of XXXX for Xbox 360).
