The 1.11 patch for GamersGate editions of the game.
The v1.11 is available in three basic versions, depending on which game version you have. If you purchased from Battlefront.com directly, you need the Battlefront.com patch. If you bought your game in retail, you most likely need the Paradox patch. If you purchased from GamersGate, you need the Gamersgate patch. Please note: doublecheck what version of the game you have BEFORE applying the patch. If you apply the wrong version patch it will make your game unplayable and you will have to reinstall completely from scratch!
PREVIOUS SAVE GAME COMPATIBILITY NOTE:
Save games created with earlier versions of the game are NOT compatible with v1.11. Please finish your in-progress games before applying this patch.
COMPATIBILITY WITH MODS:
Due to the potential of conflicts with pre v1.11 game Mods, we advise uninstalling any mods prior to installing the v1.11 game patch. Mod authors will need to update their mods using the v1.11 strings.txt embedded into the new "Version 111.brz" file.
CUSTOM HOTKEYS.TXT NOTE
If you had assigned custom hotkeys in the past (available in v1.02-v1.08) then you might want to backup your Datahotkeys.txt file before installing this patch. Once the patch is installed, simply paste your copy of hotkeys.txt file back into the Data folder and you will still have all of your old hotkey assignments.
V1.11 SCENARIO AND CAMPAIGN OPTIMIZATIONS
Version 1.11 includes an optimization which potentially speeds up the loading process or large scenarios, campaign battles, and save games. It is most noticeable for scenarios that have a lot of locked (black) elevation points. In order for this optimization to work, existing user created scenarios must be saved out in the Editor using v1.11. Nothing special is needed... just open the scenario in the Editor and save it again! User created Campaigns should be recompiled after all their individual scenarios have been re-saved. This patch includes select re-saved (i.e. optimized) versions of scenarios that shipped with CM:SF and CM:SF Marines, as well as an updated and improved version of the Marines campaign. There was no need to optimize the original CM:SF Campaigns.
