Commandos 3 Patch!!!!!

    Exclamation Commandos 3 Patch!!!!!

    The long awaited patch has been finalle released!!! here is a list of changes:
    Commandos 3 Patch. V1.42: List of fixes (2003-11-20)

    General fixes.

    - The game would sometimes crash when either a Commando or Allied Soldier tried
    to enter a vehicle when seen by a guard dog.

    - In the load/save menus some key sequences were causing the game to freeze and
    the music to loop.

    - Some tool tips of 1 character length were not being drawn. It was most
    noticeable in the Asian (Japanese, Chinese and Korean) versions.

    - Players were able to call themselves 'EMPTY', making it difficult for other
    players to know who's who both in character selection and in the game.

    - In the Central Europe Mission "Ambush Convoy", the armoured vehicles were
    stopping when they detected a Commando or Allied Soldier; this prevented the
    art trucks from entering the map when it happened near the western border. Now
    they will remember their true objective, and will try to escape even if they
    see an allied unit.

    - The timer in some missions was over-running the objectives window, making it
    difficult to read the objectives.

    - In missions such as "Stalingrad: Berlin", the tool tips for some Gestapo
    soldiers were not showing as "GESTAPO" but "SOLDIER", which would be confusing
    because it appeared that soldiers of lesser ranks could see through a higher
    ranking officers uniform when worn by the spy.

    - Now every "Gestapo" soldier tool tip will be displayed correctly.

    - When a crash occurs the profiles would frequently be wiped out and the saved
    games could not be read.

    - The F6 key inconsistency has been addressed. During the "Normandy: Omaha
    Beach" mission, the F6 key (when pressed), wouldn't highlight any of the Allied
    Soldiers.

    - When using a submachine gun, the bullets were sometimes hitting enemies in a
    different room, and were not hitting enemies in the right one.

    - When the following action was carried out (while climbing a ladder, interrupt
    the action) it would Sometimes cause the controlled characters to crawl at
    twice the normal speed.

    - It was possible to exceed the amount of pages used for saves/load files.

    - During the "Stalingrad: Protect The General" mission, if at least one of the
    Commandos was already inside the plane, and all the others were killed outside,
    the "Mission Complete" text was triggered as if the mission was correctly
    finished.

    - An issue would occur during a multiplayer game using Allied Troops they,
    could be ordered to dive into the water, although they are not intended to do
    so. They are then not able to resurface,and quickly drown.

    - Text corrections have been made in the Polish, Russian and Czech versions.

    - An issue with killing or stunning some soldiers who were sitting in a chair
    has been addressed.

    - During the Central Europe mission "Steal the Train", the Thief would warp to
    a mismatching location when entering through certain windows of a train
    carriage.


    Multiplayer fixes.

    - Players crashing sometimes from chat room when players were being kicked from
    a game.

    - Occasionally when a co-op game is created, someone would be kicked on the
    'Configure Game' screen once a game was started by the host.

    - Once in-game, if the game statistics were activated, this would sometimes
    cause the game to crash back to the desktop.

    - Characters were able to move before recovering from being knocked out.

    - When restarting a multiplayer game, sometimes some characters were shown as
    dead, although they were alive.

    - Users could not see other peoples chat depending on the order in which they
    joined the server.

    - When showing multiplayer scores, the names were not matching the colors and
    score.

    - Multiplayer chat function was overflowing in some menus.

    Yes, it's good that the technical issues are being fixed. I was just hoping for something in the patch release that says "fixed game to add all the missing inventory, missions, and bonuses."

    They are vets..

    Meaning that they've played the other games and thus know what they're talking about. They know how good the series is and can compare it far better than someone who plays it for the first time and thinks he can bash away.

    @m =

    im not very long in the comunity (almost a year, so short) simply cuz we had expensive internet. but i have been playing commandos a lot before that! finished them all, every difficulty level and w/o cheating.
    and ehm, i bet only a veteran can get a time less then 60 secs in NOTW... (first C2 night mission)
    so there are theorectly only 2 vets here; me and dave

    The patch certainly doesn't cover all the bugs we've heard about now does it? There are some things fixed that I didn't have a problem with. As you say Spade2001, no mention bumping up the graphics res or addressing hotkeys. Oh well, at this point, who cares. I took mine back where I got it and swapped for American Conquest. Guess I won't be buying it again even though it's already down to $30 here.

    eh...or not. I have been longer in the community than both you and dave. I have been playing the games since BEL was out. and I was visiting the community in 1999, not taking part in it though.

    i've probably been around longer than all three of you (since before Cutthroats by Hothouse was released in 1999) but my name has been changed several times to keep one step ahead of the forum police. my identity papers were entrusted to Natasha "Lips" Nikochevski and kept in her rather large bra but she whistled whiskey over just before they cut her out of C3. Unfortunately, whiskey hasn't been seen since him and Treads were spotted in a supply truck heading towards Wal Mart...
