Patch 1.22h:
Removed the word-from-the-user-manual copy protection of prior versions.
Added spoken mission briefings.
Added an animated 3D map showing the area of conflict before the start of each campaign mission.
Patch 1.21:
Fixed digital sound support for certain sound cards.
Unit Modifications: Both Catapults and Summoned Creatures operate in manners dissimilar from other units in the game: The catapult will attack enemy units automatically ONLY if there are no friendly units that will be affected by splash damage from the missile. If you select the Attack command and specify a target, the catapult will fire at the selected target regardless of friendly unit proximity. Summoned Creatures have a Magic Point (MP) bar as well as a Hit Point (HP) bar. The MP bar will degrade over time, and when it is drained, the summoned creature will begin taking damage, as the powers that hold it here are no longer in force.
