Report article RSS Feed BOH 5th Anniversary Edition released

4/4/2014: easy remember, the date of the 5th anniversary of BOH. There is no better way to celebrate the event than releasing a brand-new edition that majestically closes the incredible evolution the game underwent since its original release.

4/4/2014: easy remember, the date of the 5th anniversary of BOH. There is no better way to celebrate the event than releasing a brand-new edition that majestically closes the incredible evolution the game underwent since its original release.

DESURA USERS: PLEASE READ THE NOTE AT THE BOTTOM BEFORE INSTALLING.

The 5th Anniversary Edition:

  • includes all the updates released previously;
  • reworks the video modes handling (full screen by default; window on 16-bit screens allowed; more robust; etc.);
  • adds the CRT and LCD pixel modes;
  • adds the 5x zoom;
  • adds 5 new missions, bringing the total to a massive 60;
  • assigns the pause to the [ESCAPE] key (instead of a specific key), which thus no longer causes the immediate abort of the current mission;
  • reworks the menu controls (more keys; do not depend anymore on the in-game controls configuration);
  • adds the emergency configuration reset (assigned to the key [F12]);
  • adds the screenshot functionality (assigned to the key [F1]);
  • makes quitting by means of [ALT]+[F4] available on all platforms;
  • sets the default URL for records submission to Retream.com (it is no longer necessary to specify such URL manually in the configuration file);
  • replaces the copy code with an email address for the records submission;
  • updates the manuals;
  • applies many other optimizations/changes/fixes, for more performance, polish and robustness.

The demos have been updated to reflect the changes.

IMPORTANT: Desura's automatic update process will trash your records; if you want to preserve them, please pack the missions directory and send it to boh@retream.com.

Oh my, 5 years already. And I still haven't bought the game, even though I intended to at the release! Anyway, here is a late "Happy anniversary"! :)
