Guys,

Just a little heads up. I have redone many of the Franklin scenarios and completely renamed every one.

Please the following prior to opening the patch.

<font color="red"><font size="2"><b><i> ** PLEASE READ FOR BEST RESULTS **

You should delete all SCN files before applying patch 1.08 as all scenario
files have been reworked and renamed. Note that current games will be
unaffected.

Changes for Campaign Franklin 1.08
- Weather scenarios have been added.
- A/I Challenge scenarios have been added.
- Dual graphics has been added and all scenarios can be configured for
either default Winter or Spring graphics.
- AI firing is now by stack instead of by unit.
- Activate AI when under Manual control now only activates AI Firing and
not AI Movement.
- Added new Ammo Artillery by Cannon optional rule.
- Added ability to specify alternative arrival hexes for a reinforcement.
- Added Alternate Melee Resolution rule which separates melees into
separate phase.
- Added fix for Uncrewed or Spiked artillery spotting enemy units.
- Added toolbar button for Command Range.
- Added new Proportional Opportunity Fire Optional Rule that causes
Opportunity Fire generated by firing units to be more proportional to
the total strength of the units firing.
- Added new Parameter Data value that controls when artillery crews are
killed.
- Added new Alternate Fixed Unit release Optional Rule that releases Fixed
units within 5 hexes of an enemy unit regardless of Line-of-Sight to that
unit.
- Fix for some screensavers causing game to go blank.</i></b></font id="size2"></font id="red">

Hi Rich,

What effect does your changes have on currently being played Campaigns? Should we finish them out before we patch? Any changes to the Campaign choices or scenarios generated from those choices?

Thanks,

I understood what it did to scenarios, I just wanted to know if the patch did anything to the campaign part of the game that we needed to be aware of.
