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.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.
IMG Review of Combat Mission
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)
