  • The maximum number of custom weapons in the custom weapons databases has been increased for Inner Sphere and Clan.

The following changes were made in V1.03 R0:

  • Due to a recent rule change, Battle Armor which can ride OmniMechs also qualify to ride OmniVehicles, so the program has been changed to indicate that.

The following changes were made in V1.02 R3:

  • Corrected the "19" to "10" on 9 & 10 missile hits on the missile hit table.

The following changes were made in V1.02 R2:

  • Corrected a weapon cost rounding error in calculating total cost.
  • Corrected the David Light Gauss Rifle extreme range figure in meters.
  • Revised AP damage display code to correct a problem which showed up on some International (non-U.S.) systems.

The following changes were made in V1.02 R1:

  • Fixed where MP could disappear when saving design, although it was still correct.
  • Fixed where changing Mixed Tech designs to Level 2 could keep opposite tech powerplant or armor.
  • Fixed where Partial Wing stayed selected after choosing Clan tech or increasing weight of design.
  • Fixed where Multi-Purpose/T ammo was allowed for Clan designs, which it is Inner Sphere only.
  • Now 0.5 is always rounded up when correcting Battle Value for skills.

The following changes were made in V1.02 R0:

  • Fixed where kg weight showed as 0 on printed Tech Info screen for current configuration.

  • Now show Decimal Damage for anti-personnel weapons on Weapon Selection screen; previously, they were all rounded to zero, but this gives a bitter idea of group damage.
  • Corrected the displayed weight of Jump/UMU/VTOL equipment in RPG mode when less than the maximum movement was used. Total weight was correct, but displayed component weight wasn't.
  • RPG cost of Jump/UMU/VTOL equipment was not correct when less than maximum movement was selected.
  • To prevent confusion, now either CBT Rules or CBT:RPG Rules is displayed on reports and printouts, to display what ruleset is being used.
