Harpoon Updated to 3.3.4
10:50 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Jesse Spears has recently updated his war sim title Harpoon 3 to version 3.3.3. This new version fixes a time bug found within the game:

In some scenarios, some planes have a Ready Time set many hours in the future. This is used to simulate planes that are damaged, or not combat ready at the start of the scenario for some reason. Previous versions would not let the planes launch early, but were displaying incorrect ready times in the "Launch/Ready Aircraft" dialog (counting down to 0, then staying there). The display code assumed that 30 minutes was the longest ready time possible, and I think that worked ok for all of the early Battlesets. However, in some of the later Battlesets (and possibly in user created scenarios), the delayed ready time was actually used (the particular scenario that was reported to me was Fortune Cookie, from Regional Conflicts 1).
Patch updates for various versions of H3, as well as more detailed information on the bug fix, are available at the Official Harpoon 3 web site.
