  • When loading old-format og's scenarios, "#vh to control" flag was not properly read, so only PG2 victory conditions worked
  • When scenario units plus core units exceeded 400, the game crashed, as engine didn't check this at load time. Now storage is increased to avoid existing campaigns to crash, but player limits to buy are yet set at 200,133 and 100 for 2,3 and 4 players

  • Tiled maps didn't work for scenarios using .map files, because that undefined map size when no map picture is found. Now enfgine scans the map data to figure a proper map size, and hence tiled map can be used. Although this map size could not be accurate, (any unused cell could have garbage), it is better than not allowing to play at all.
  • Server to download map pictures (maps repository) can be defined into external map_server.ini, to be placed at main game folder, which only valid line should be the server name to use, not including "www." nor "http://")
    Currently default server is set to "luis-guzman.com", at least while SourceForge is blocked (only jpg maps are available atm, but no need to change OG settings)

      a.- Objective hexes and follow/inherit from other unit are now fully functional.
      b.- Can define how close OH should be released
      c.- When OH is set from other units, can define if follow that unit or inherit unit's OH
    • New options to include in .AI files further customization of AI behavior when purchasing  See New entry in main OpenGen page
