v 4.1 - "F" Key Doesn't Work During Setup?

Post by Andy Brown » Sun May 24, 2009 9:58 am

Anyone else noticed this. Started to play my first Defence game using 4.1. Couldn't use the "F" key to check LoS and fields of fire during setup.

"F" works OK during actual play of the game, just not during setup. It did work during setup in 4.0 (I used it all the time when setting up defensive forces).

Sean - any chance of a fix on this one? Losing this feature is definitely a backward step.

Sorry about that! I'm not sure why that bug keeps creeping back in! I'm working on version 4.2 right now and I've got it fixed.

The biggest change is to the graphics. I've paid a friend who's a graphics artist to tidy them up a bit. I've also gone down the wish lists on these forums to try and add things that people have been asking for. Most of the ideas are far too complicated for this small update but I've done:

- fixed the 'F' key bug at setup
- shows were the start line is on the mini map too
- tweaked things a bit (eg mortars are a bit more lethal now)
- made it a bit more memory efficient so only graphics that are really needed are loaded
- made the statistics dialog box wider so it's easier to see the kills
- added the rest of Kevin Knoot's tank data
- added a few more scenarios (Malaya and Burma)
