As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

** These additions had been planned for the next full release but SPCamo decided to add what they had done so far to these supplements. This is a Work in Progress and SPCamo plans to have all the buildings redone for the next release plus many new additions.

Bug Fixes:

  • In PBEM games a player could spot the enemy during deploy on smaller maps. -FIXED
  • Units unloaded during beach assault set ups had been programmed to drown at the end of the first turn after deployment in beach assaults but they could still fire at beach targets while unloaded during the first turn then reload into Landing craft and continue to the beach. FIXED.Units left out of landing craft will " drown" at the start of the first turn now.
  • Random seeming game crashes mostly affecting XP users have been eliminated.
  • During the deployment phase the AI opponent would opfire during deployment if you did something that triggered opfire-- like unloading in LOS - FIXED
  • Auto deployed barges sometimes ended up deployed on land - FIXED
  • SABOT range added to indirect fire artillery was also acting as the minimum indirect fire range- FIXED. On-map artillery now has a 20 hex minimum range for all guns. This is unchanged from before but now Sabot range does not affect that minimum.
