Platoon Patch 1.12


  • Display Resolution bug:
    • Under win98 with a gf3 FX If you choose a higher resolution than 1024 x 768, the mouse pointer appears in double. The consequence is that neither campaign nor scenario can be started. This problem doesn't concern lower resolution. With the mouse pointer being duplicated, you can no longer use the "Start" nor the "Back" button which makes the tutorial the only thing you can run.
  • Multiplayer desync:
    • After 3 games desynchronisation occured. With this patch the out of synch problem is fixed.
  • Game Play:
    • Sometimes when you were trying to mount into an APC, both the apc and the mounted unit were getting stuck and unsuable (testable on mission 8).
