HCE - 2008.028

==============

- Chg:0191 GE Remove depth check that prevents submarines from fire missiles

HCE - 2008.037

==============

- Chg:0000 GE Fix bug in 2008.036 mouse click depth that wasn't taking into

account when a group was being clicked (doh!)(thanks Brad)

- Chg:0000 SE When mouse is clicked and shows distance on status bar, show

water depth. Only for Group window at present.

 

HCE - 2008.036

==============

- Chg:0000 GE Move the unit/group icon graphic out of Harpoon32.dll and into

the Graphics subdirectory of the game.

- Chg:2021 GE Tentative fix to non-air groups being asked to fire AAMs at air

groups. The situation is a surface group with fighters in

formation. If the incoming attacker comes into range of the

fighters in formation, the ships of that group would want

to fire SAMs. That isn't allowed, so the fix is to prompt

the player to form an intercept group from the formation

patrols.

- Chg:0000 GE When mouse is clicked and shows distance on status bar, show

water depth at the most recently clicked point on the map.

Only for Group window at present.

Blue courses in many cases recreated but in all cases will not

run aground anymore with the default courses (assuming the

- Chg:0000 GE Removed text in WestPac description talking about only two

scenarios being included.

- Chg:0000 GE New splash screen.
