Recently, after our comeback we have been hard at work, polishing certain design elements and balance testing in multiplayer 1v1. The time has come to deliver an update to the public. The new version contains a lot of balance adjustments, along with a few fixes. In the background, we are working on certain new ships and concepts, some of which we have already teased. This is a smaller update that mainly aims to polish multiplayer balance.
In the download you will find the .big file and an icon image within a zip folder. You will have to rename the .big file after extraction to ComplexEnhanced8.81. From here, just create a new shortcut to HW2, and add the following to the end of the target line : -mod ComplexEnhanced8.81.big -nomovies -hardwarecursor -w xxx h yyy -forceLAN -determcompplayer
-nomovies will skip the opening cinematics
-w xxx h yyy will set a custom screen resolution (replace with numbers)
forceLAN will let you enter any and every game room regardless of version
-determcompplayer will increase AI difficulty levels.
