CMANO v1.09 Release Candidate 1 (Build 735)


Download: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B205vpZC1pGmU2JHVTQzUkt3VHM/view?usp=sharing

Unzip to your existing CMANO installation folder. (Backup your current Command.exe just in case)

IMPORTANT NOTE: Because of changes in the way that the program checks for a valid license, if you have not actually installed Command on your current OS (e.g. re-installed the OS after installing Command or copied the entire installation folder from another PC etc.) you may get an "insufficient license" warning when attempting to load a scenario. If this is the case then re-install Command. If the problem persists after a proper installation please contact us immediately through PM/email. Thanks!


Release Notes (changes since v1.08 - B678.18)
---------------------------------------------------------------------



Major new features:
--------------------------

* New Lua action: Change the side of a unit

* New Lua action: Explode a warhead.

* New event condition: "Scenario Has Started". Useful for scripting actions that you want to happen only at the very beginning of a scenario (e.g randomizing start positions).

* Includes an updated version of the scenario "The Four Horsemen" with the scen-on-load issue fixed.

* Includes 3 new tutorial scenarios by Mark Gellis (from the "Uncle Mark's Tutorials" series).

* Massive performance increases (as in up to over 10x faster) under certain "heavy" setups such as very complex radar/ECM interactions and thousands of AI-busy units.

* Significant speed improvement in scenarios with numerous underwater biological entities (whales, fish etc.)

* New map feature: Placenames (countries, major cities and major geographical elements). It can be enabled/disabled through the "Game Options" window and is persisted like other map visibility options.

* New map feature: You can select to display either all detected contact emissions or only the ones associated with weapon fire control (helps reduce clutter when displaying emissions from all contacts)

* New major weapon feature: Nuclear detonations now produce a broadband EMP wave.

a) Effects radius & intensity: The radius is independent of yield and hinges mostly on LOS and whether the detonation is within the atmosphere, in the stratosphere or in near/outer space.
* In the atmosphere: The radiation is absorbed quite heavily by the atmosphere and intensity falls linearly with distance. Maximum range is a bit longer than maximum blast range.
* In the stratosphere: Part of the energy escapes to space while another part is trapped on the troposphere upper layer, forming an "EMP blanket". Absorption is much less severe so the max range is much larger.
* Near/outer space: All the energy headed towards earth is refracted through the atmosphere and forms a very intense EMP blanket of near-uniform intensity. Max effects range can be as far as 1500nm from ground zero with high intensity. (This is why most EMP-attack scenarios in the Cold War assumed this profile. See also "GoldenEye").

b) System effects: As currently implemented only platform sensors are vulnerable to damage.
Factors affecting damage probability:
* Pulse intensity - see above.
* Operating status: Sensors that are turned off can be affected but much less likely
* Tech generation: Early 60s and earlier (vacuum tubes) are the most resistant, late 60s (first transistors and solid states) are more vulnerable, late 70s (VLSI) more so, and from late 80s (COTS) onwards it's a party.

Thanks. We're aware of this and it will not be an issue on the final release.

I do have steam installed but not for this game. I assume that if I don't copy them they won't do anything in this case.

If you are not using this for Steam, it won't matter. They are only there to allow the game to run with the Steam shell if you bought the game through Steam.

I've been running a large scale scenario with this update. A few hours in and now all the missile impact calculations for the human side roll a 1. Here is a save of the moment it was happening. No idea if you guy will be able to reproduce it but shoot some Sidewinders and AMRAAMs at a Su-34/Su-25 over Poland and it'll Chaff/Flare away 100% of the time with a PK roll of 1 out 100. Happened to 8 missiles in a row.

Not to be rude, but at first I thought... a LUA script to detonate a warhead?
And then I thought about half a dozen ways to have fun with that.
That is cook!

Can you say "Random Catastrophic Missile Launch Failure"?

Not a PC Noob been using computers since 1969 of various types and the PC from it's earliest form. What I don't understand or want is Steam. Having said that my question was badly phrased (inane) but your answer 'They are only there to allow the game to run with the Steam shell if you bought the game through Steam.' answered the question I meant to ask.

Thanks

Not to be too difficult, but the download went just fine, and installed just fine.

But...when I run the game it starts normally, and allows me to select a scenario. When the the scenario intro. loads the game is telling me that my copy is not licensed and invites me to update now.

There have been no changes to my system since buying the game - no new OS etc.

I haven't tried to re-install the game yet, just thought you might like to know about this little glitch's difference to what was described in the install listing.

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

Re-ran the V1.08 Final installation, and re-entered my serial number. No problems, and the game ran just fine.

Re-installed from the V1.09 RC1 download, and it still tells me that my installation is "Not Licensed" at the Load Scenario dialog box.

You need to reinstall using the original game file installer and then update with the last patch 1.09.

If you haven't a backup of your game file installer please open a helpdesk ticket or contact us at support[at]slitherine.co.uk with your order details (order reference number or/and email address used for placing the order) and we will provide you with a new download link for the installer.

Tremendous update! I've tried it with several scenarios and love the improvements/changes.

One question - new Lua features such as "Explode a warhead" (which I assume is ScenEdit_AddExplosion) - is there updated Lua documentation on how to use them? I checked the Baloogan Lua reference on-line and did not find the new options listed there. Thanks for your help and overall great support!
