Thank you for the report. I assume you are playing one of the legacy versions from the HC20 launcher? The 'fix' is to play the current HC version included in the Ultimate package. Since the newer versions contain fixes for a number of issues in the earlier versions we have no intention of going back to the older code bases to back-port fixes.
The 19 older versions of HC were included to provide the ability to look at the game through the years, see when bugs were fixed, re-broken, fixed again and to see how far the game has come even if it visually looks quite similar to the first release. Plus the DOS versions are happy to run in emulators on tablets and such!
TonyE, thanks for your fast response.
Of course, I figured that is not possible to solve the older version's bugs, but it is curious that this problem is not in the previous version 2003.15
I play ANW and HCE on my personal computer, but the Gold version is very useful for me to play on a computer where I have no admin rights, via a portable installation on a pendrive. That's not possible with HCE because it needs to have been installed normally, with the resulting registry modification. BTW I am very happy to be able to play the 2003.15 version at least
