I notice the night lighting seems improved now in latest patch -with a moon you get a pretty good light. You still have the option of a very dark night, which is good. I did try to get something in-between, but it seems it's either full-moon or dark-as-Hell.

Been messing with the in-game troop moving and it seems OK -I have upped my groups from 4 to 8 and it appears to cope OK even in MP. Am tinkering again with a mission to use this more, which will be up for testing soonish.

The openbeta has another update out today (2nd one this week).

It says the NET protocol has changed as the old one wasn't compatible with old ones in multiplayer.

Not being a PC-head, I believe this is important but I don't really know why or how much?!

Hopefully this will be an improvement?  :D

Noticed since coming back from Greece that there were 2 new updates -OB and main game. Dedi has been sorted.

Don't know how near the vanilla is to the OB -anyone?

I think it is close. It allows the Persian Gulf map now, as well as some of the newer aircraft (I think).

ED were proclaiming a couple of days ago that noth the normal and OB were now the same -much as I tried I couldn't get the norm to update but today (Sunday) it has.

So it appears both are fully compatible as things stand. Have UD the dedi.
