I'm considering moving to version 1.4.

I don't like the last sentence, though:

This is the first patch for both the US and Europe games. UFO: Enemy Unknown users MUST install 1.2 before this to fix some map and graphic glitches.
This patch fixes many stability issues, some game stopping research bugs And removed the startup copy protection. However it also replaces the sounds with ones that are not as good as the originals.

Can't quite understand, does it only affect Roland (don't care) and is patchable by this (General Midi in Xcom games.)?

Some dislike the newer alien death screams compared to the older ones, but of course it's subjective.
