Version 1.07d
31 Aug 17

Version 1.07d is a major re-working of the user interface and finalising of the crew voices. Note that additional ships, weapons and helicopters have been removed for now while we focus on getting the GUI tested and deployed.

The new GUI functionality is mostly redundant such that Cold Waters can be played predominately from the keyboard as it was prior to 1.07d. Access to the new GUI functionality is via tabs which are minimsed by default with the exception of weapon buttons which now appear on the Weapons panel and the Periscope/ESM toolbar which auto appears once masts are raised.

//Toolbar position 0,0, 1 to anchor to minimap or 0 for no anchor

Version 1.09b Beta Now Available
This is a significant update which adds neutral shipping along with other fixes and improvements to the base game. Note that it will likely break most mods, so be sure to disable any mods or custom content before enabling 1.09 beta.

To opt in to the beta:
Right click the Cold Waters in Steam library, go to properties and you should have new "BETAS" tab added, then use the pulldown to select the beta you would like to opt into -leave the early access code empty- and the new update should download. When you run the game the version number should read version 1.09.

 
1.09b fixes a nasty bug where the player sub was flagged as sunk when sinking a currently undetected contact as well as improves tactical map display of neutrals and removes them from the ENEMY ENGAGED list of the Action Report.

Latest Beta update. Quoting from Killerfish Games.

Version 1.09d Beta


22 Dec 2017

==============================
[h1]Major Changes[/h1]
- Start of combat sonarman greatly improved. Please check for any issues with initial contact assignment with detected or lost contacts, duplicate "S" contacts etc.

- INSERTION and LAND_STRIKE missions were crashing in previous 1.09 versions. Please verify that these mission types are working and if you have a campaign where they consistently crash on loading, please email us the save game.
Confirmed still crashing: We'll roll out a fix in the next day or so.

- Subsequent missions could crash due to assignment of neutral flags in the previous mission. Please check multiple missions work fine in the same play session.

      View File Viper's Massive Collection of Insignias, Emblems and Patches
      My massive collection of aircraft and related insignias, emblems and patches!
      I forgot to mention, I didn't create all of these...didn't mean to imply I made them all...I collected them from all over...here and the net...
      I could not find the source (CombatAce Links) for some of the items, (didn't remember where I got it from) so I removed them...sorry about that...
      Enjoy!
