New Combat Mission 1.1 Beta
9:19 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A post to the Battlefront forums notes that a new beta for the much-acclaimed 3D wargame Combat Mission is now available for download. This version 1.1 beta 22 lets Windows 2000 users join in the internet multiplayer fun, along with making a number of other bug fixes. An earlier copy of the beta was released a few weeks ago, so be sure to grab this update if you haven't already. Here's a few of the changed made in v22:

  • AI Unit purchaser tweaked so that itís better about buying vehicles/armor for Combined Arms forces.
  • Fixed a bug that incorrectly counted the number of knocked out vehicles and crewmember casualties during Operations.

  • Rough terrain tiles now abut so that they block vehicular traffic along shared edges.

  • Infantry leaving buildings in danger of collapse: they're a little smarter about it but there's also a good chance they won't leave at all.

  • Fixed a bug that often caused airplanes not to show up in Operations. (*really* fixed it this time!).

  • Vehicles can now hit mines when moving in reverse (bug fix).

  • Vehicles can get Bogged while moving in reverse (bug fix)
  • These are just of few of the many things tweaked/fixed in this impressively -large war sim. If you have yet to try out Combat Mission, be sure to give the demo a spin. And also read through IMG's review if you are looking for some more info on the game.
