**** HOTFIX 1.06.14 AVAILABLE ****


New Developer Beta Hotfix for EDBTR patch version 1.06.

1.06.14 is an unofficial update that fixes some minor bugs that we discovered after the release of the 1.06 patch - and we have added some cool new features for you to try out! Just download the zip file from the link below and extract into your main GGEDTBTR folder where the 1.06 patch resides. This will overwrite several files so answer 'yes' to the MSWindows overwrite prompts.


Although this update should not effect your current 1.06 saves, it is preferable that you start a new game or at least complete your current turn. If your run the game through DxWnd, it's always good to "clear compatibility flags" whenever you update.

1.06.14 fixes and new features:

1. Fixed Scoring bugs for intro and short campaigns and some other scenarios.
2. Added "BigDuke66"'s BoB map graphic fix and several fixes to BoB location errors. fixed KG 40 HQ assignment.
3. The Halifax V and Lancaster II are now available for BTR. Both aircraft reside within 6 Group. Only available if you restart a new game.
4. German gruppe now contain 40 aircraft max.
4. Added ability to select location and airbase info on the map during the reaction phase.
5. Sunrise and sunset now tracks much more realistically to the seasons (based on Paris latitude). This means the attacker really has to pay attention to the time of year and plan his day and night raid launch times accordingly.
6. Added sunrise-sunset info to main display and planning display.
7. Added menu toggle button to stop re-centering of map during reaction phase(!) You can pan but you can't zoom with this feature on.
8. More fixes to speed up play and stop "turnback to target" events. (1.06.09)
9. Made some tweaks to Allied BTR AI.
10. Updated promotion feature and fixed a few bugs. Most promotions in the game were just pilots replacing a fallen or wounded leader. Now you will see a message to that effect - either assuming command or an actual rank promotion. Promotions don't have much effect in the game - yet.

Enjoy, and let us know what you think. Here is the dropbox link:

Should the version identifier at the bottom left of the screen change?

Yes, it should show 1.06.08. If you downloaded and extracted the patch before today, a folder called "1.06.08" was created where you unzipped it. Copy the contents of that folder over your original installation folder. It should ask you if you want to overwrite some files.

Now the instructions from the first post are correct.

That worked - I'd forgotten to copy over the litte .btr "Stuka" app file as well.


Ta.
