HeavyMetal Lite Revision History

The following changes were made in V2.07 R3:

  • Corrected a problem with screen sizing and operation on monitor displays with
    resolutions over 2048 x 1536 in size.

The following changes were made in V2.07 R2:

  • Fixed where the corrected BV due to warrior skill did not show up on infantry preview (but was fine on the printout).
  • Corrected the Battle Value of the Raiden Laser BA (was zero due to an entry error).

The following changes were made in V2.07 R1:

  • Fixed where to-hit mods over +1 were not considered when calculating custom weapon Battle Value.

The following changes were made in V2.07 R0:

  • The rounding problem fix in V2.06 R3 wasn't done properly, I'm afraid, so has been fixed here a second (and hopefully the last) time. Sorry about that. BTW, it affects no standard designs, and few others, but it was still there.
  • Corrected the Battle Value of the Rottweiler Battle Armor to the latest published value.

The following changes were made in V2.06 R3:
