Version 1.12 Updates

- Leader stats corrected

  • as per the latest rules (Standard Game Rules form July 2013)

- Added fan-created maps

  • thus the current count is Map 1-50 + B1 + B2 + Crossroads + P1 Ocean + Putot-en-Bessin)

- added a Canal hex overlay

  • you are able to "adjust" the terrain if needed (as in Scenario H2, where the canal extends two more hexes, going off-map)

- added Group XX markers

  • to be able to identify groups by numbers on the map (again, Scenario H2 has 3 German groups appearing on consecutive Turns in randomized order during the scenario)

- added a simple Turn counter

  • you can use it to advance turns between the players. It requires setup prior usage, as all nationalities are selected as present in the game by default. Simply right-click on it to set it up (the third option with two more clicks to the right), deselect unused nationalities and set the starting nationality. Then use the arrows to move forard the turns alternating between the nationalities.

- added a "Scenario" window

  • has the list and abbreviated details of all available official and fan-created scenarios, which should work coupled with the prepared Savegames
  • the Savegames are a planned feature already being worked on, made as a separate Module Extension due to amount of work required

- increased the counter spread - adjusted the mouse-over Stack viewer

  • includes counter names, map sheet ID and Hex number

- added Grid numbering - added Movement Trail to counters - fiddled with Report Action

  • textually logs what the counters do (i.e. reduction, movement, fire, assault move etc.)

- corrected the definition of the Smoke markers - changed the previously too big "Splash.gif" image - altered the way the in-game statuses are displayed on counters

  • (Move, Fire...), now they show as Labels to remove unnecessary stack cluttering

- changed the "Remove" shortcut for Status markers

  • now CTRL-X, so that it does not collide with the "Reduce" shortcut for squads

- die roll results now show the total result and the format changed

  • plus the "VA" and "LOR" text is shown for each "1" rolled in a die roll, so that when you roll 1+1, you are reminded of a "Valor" roll requirement for Infantry
  • example: *** 6 *** (2d6 roll: 5 [.LOR] 1)
  • example: *** 3 *** (1d6)
  • example: *** 2 *** (2d6 roll: 1 [VALOR] 1)

- Added a 20% zoom level - Added CTRL_Numpad+ and CTRL_Numpad- as zoom shortcuts - Added a "Reset Unit Status" button

  • resets the status of all units on the map ("Fired", "Moved" etc.), retaining any Valor and/or Pinned/Immobilized status

- Added the Terrain Chart to the "Charts" section - Adjusted the existing charts to the latest ruleset - Added "XYZ removed from board..." notification after a unit/weapon is deleted

  • unfortunately it does not list the location/hex from which the unit/weapon was deleted (because the delete happens first and afterwards the counter has no "location/hex" state anymore)

- Added separate "Smoke +1" counters - added CP markers into their own "Casualty points" list under "Markers" - removed the Turn Marker as obsolete - set the LOS thread to snap to center dots on both ends - changed the default "MOV" picture to a more appropriate graphic

  • for "Remove movement trail"

- Reordered the counters in all the tabs in the "Armies" window

  • they are now sorted alphabetically, with Leaders also sorted by their bonus first (this also applies for the Extension armies)
  • this was also done in the Extension and is one of the few changes in the Extension file itself
