Another patch that really required an update! The old patch didn't really work
properly and was done in quite a sloppy way and shouldn't have been released
at all in my opinion!
I have started to make a completely new patch from scratch back in 2013, disabled
the manual protection completely and then tried to fix an access fault that happened
when the right mouse button was pressed but wasn't really successful as I didn't
find the reason for it. Today I had a look at it again and finally found the
culprit, the input hander code was buggy and needed fixing. I also spent
quite a bit of time trying to fix a problem when starting the first WW1 mission.
It only happens when language is set to either German or Italian and causes
an access fault (the disk version simply crashes!). I could not find a good
enough fix for it and I don't want to spend more time on it so I advise to play
the game in English.
Enjoy the game from HD.
