NEW FEATURE

BOR becomes AJE-aware!
Birth of Rome is now capable of using the AJE scenarios, if you installed it anywhere on your PC! Both games remain standalone, meaning you don't need to buy AJE to play BOR scenarios, but now, if you bought AJE, you only need to launch BOR to get the scenarios of both games!



*************
LANGUAGE
German translation is now available. If you want to switch to German, you can do this by manually changing the following
inside the General.opt file

-------------

2. *** General interface choices ***
// language (0: English; 1: Francais; 2: Espanol; 3: Deutsche)

Language = 0 ==> write 3 instead of 0 to obtain German

Hi
The BOR patch changelog posted above and inside the rar file is not 100% correct.

The "New legion" military option in the First Punic War scenarios was a new option tested but abandoned during public beta, so it is not (intentionally) in the official patch. Apart from it, it's ok.

Sorry for this minor inconvenience

Below the correct changelog:
