Changes and Improvements in Update 0.9.8

Changes and Improvements in Update 0.9.8:

  • We've updated the look, appearance/disappearance time, and layout of the pop-up tooltips and menus in the game client.
  • Thunderstorm Front and Snowstorm have become available in the game again.
  • Reduced the frequency of a synchronization error that causes incorrect display of ship positions in battle.
  • Updated the Fighter consumable icon for aircraft carriers.
  • You can now hide pop-up menus and tooltips by pressing Esc.
  • A subfolder with the update number is no longer created in the res_mods folder which contains game client modifications. Game-client modifications are now installed directly to the res_mods folder.
  • The Port of Hamburg has had its usual design restored.
  • Erich Loewenhardt: fixed the names of rockets and bombs.
  • Pommern: corrected the hull name.
  • Changed the structure of some user-setting sections in the preferences.xml file of the game client.
