10:38 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
Big Time Software has updated their highly-acclaimed war game Combat Mission to version 1.04, making numerous changes and fixes to the game. You should be careful when updating your game, however, as the company recommends you finish any partially-completed scenarios before updating to the new version.
Combat Mission is a 3D war sim set in World War II that delivers an amazing amount of realism. It has won numerous awards from various PC and Mac sites for its accuracy and depth of realism. Version 1.4 brings a huge number of improvements to the game; here are just a few from the list:
Glad to see the Canadians now have access to all the firepower they need... See the ReadMe that accompanies the patch for the complete list of changes. If you're a CM fan, be sure to head to Macgamefiles now and grab the update.

- Play-by-email format has changed. Both players must use v1.04 to be
compatible. IMPORTANT: Upgrading to v1.04 part way through a scenario or
play-by-email is NOT recommended, due to a change in the way artillery
ammunition is tracked (see below).
- AI bug fixed so it does a better job 'defending' against an enemy exit
edge, even if the AI is the attacking force.
- Vehicles with limited AP ammo were sometimes overly cautious about using
it (e.g. SPW 250/9). This has been remedied.
- Canadians have use of 40mm Bofors AA gun.
