That's what they keep saying, but in 1.X -> 2.0 rockets went haywire, and in 2.0 -> 2.1 AA went to heck, so I wanted confirmation ;p

I create a shortcut of my WZ icon (because I don't know how to edit the icon itself to take command line parameters), and in the shortcut, I target "C:\warzone res\warzone2100.exe" --configdir "C:\warzone res\screenshots". The wierdness came in that the game took like 10X as long to load, but worked fine, save for the fact that screenshots still went into the "documents and settings/my name/etc/etc/etc" folder. But the shortcut folder works just as fine for me, so no worries.

Just wanted to acknowledge the very fine work you're doing in the other thread here
so as not to interrupt your flow with a comment.

Regards, whipper :)

I believe in 1.x -> 2.0, the rocket upgrade bug was fixed, and in 2.0 -> 2.1, the projectile system was changed, so technically, nothing stat-wise was changed in either one. ;)

Nonetheless, I can't think of anything that affects campaign balance at all in 2.1 -> 2.2.

Hmm. Maybe it did the default font cache thing?

Perhaps. Like I said though, I figured out a work around, so no biggie.

That said, even IF cannons are still the de-facto superweapon, I plan on doing my guide mixing in some rocketry as well. That way, when rockets no longer suck, my guide will still be accurate, since one can win with rockets right now, and just moreso in the future :P
