I know I said I would release it on Sunday, but due to the recent forum inactivity, and the fact that I'm away a lot, I'm releasing it now. This is a very small update, only fixing one issue. So, to counteract the minuteness of this update, I've also included the game font I was originally going to distribute with Beta 2.1 (but forgot :lol:). It's the YR logo font converted to a size suitable for the game. Please note, there are no Arabic, Cyrillic, Hebrew or any other foreign characters in the font, so it may not work with some games.
I wasn't able to get the weapons fixed on the F.F. Pillbox - the solution I was using made the weapon go completely haywire. I tried several other things, but no joy. So, the only unit fixed is the Soldier, which now fires in a straight line.
Again, it comes in Cumulative and Incremental versions. Download the Cumulative if you've only got one of the earlier versions. Download the Incremental if you've got Beta 2.1.
Now, as I said, this is the last bugfix version. I'll now start work on Beta 3.0, which means no more public beta testing. I will also be looking for some help graphic-wise with this version, as it'll need a bit more work, so keep an eye on the news.

Cumulative Version (download if you use Beta 2.0c or earlier): Download Link.
Incremental Version (download if you use Beta 2.1): Download Link.
RockPatch 1.10 is required. It is included in the zip files, but if for some reason it doesn't work, try getting it from here or here. The included version is 1.10 #0036, the last one released.
You may also need the Terrain Expansion. (Actually, you won't yet, but I'd advise you to download it anyway).

And, don't use the NPatch with this mod. You will get errors, and it won't work properly. Using it with a mod that clearly states it doesn't work with the NPatch is sheer idiocy. If you tell me the mod won't work and you're using NPatch version x or y, your post gets deleted. Nuff said.
Lastly, don't distribute my game font.

Fine news indeed.

Russian, Cyrillic


Dude, the Russians use Cyrillic (invented in the 9th century. All copyrights included), just like most other Slavic nations. :xd:

Apologies, Gosho, foreign languages aren't my speciality :umad:. Unfortunately I don't know one bit of any Cyrillic language, that's why there aren't any Cyrillic characters in the font - I haven't drawn them.

...why not?

If you're implying something, you are already credited for the RockPatch, along with pd and jonwil, in my mod's credits, and have been since I stopped using 1.07b.

This is not the place for this discussion. Your post has been edited for distributing information on how to hack into my mod's files.
