Hello all,

There is a new Beta version in the Members Club. It has over five hundred fixes and improvements, which are listed below. Our thanks to the AE team for their support and patience. We would have had this out to you sooner, but we have been working right up to our limit with all the pre-Christmas releases.

Please try it, if you are willing to work with a beta, and supply us with your feedback.

Wow!  I've been away from WitP for a while, but just this morning I was planning to post a "So when will that unofficial beta start looking official?" post!

Congratulations to all you hard-working testers.  This looks very impressive.

Users of the Tech Support betas should take note to not use the Beta Shortcut anymore (the one created by installing the beta published in the Tech Support forum - aka beta2 folder).

Thanks for the beta, I just installed and the game no longer runs in a window like the previous version I was using. Kind of clunky.

The window was due to the switches set up in the shortcut. Just remove the window switch to prevent it running in the window.

For upgrades outside the defined upgrades - Yes, otherwise No... Still it allows some more flexibility as a trade off.

is there a newer 'c' version?

There is a beta installer (r6?) in the Tech forum that addresses some bugs since the official Beta was posted.
I will be passing these on so that a new official can be built but not until Matrix returns (about second week Jan)

So far I have only noticed one quirky thing with the latest beta patch. In the game previously when a flight of aircraft was npoted on screen, such as "Japanese planes observed over Plegramtabata or whatever, it often showed up as only half a message. Now the whole message shows up, but the screen is divided in wierd ways so that the right half is either words with no land mass, or even the wrong segment of map. It rights itself once the message is over, but it's sort of strange.

Hope this makes sense.

Otherwise have noted nothing odd.
