Planned as a "hotfix", the 1.32 version of Battlegroup42 has been grown to a true patch file. Thanks to the feedback of the community, we have been able to fix a lot of bugs which have not been noticed before. Most of them are coding issues in the new vehicles, others came from the map files. But don´t expect to much: Even version 1.32 will not be without any errors and bugs, but we have only a small team and no capacity for full size beta testing. If you like to join our team as a beta tester, modeller, skinner, unwrapper or in another modding related job just drop an application at our forums.
As promised, patch 1.32 contains two new maps designed by SargeSurfat. We hope you will have as much fun playing them as we have during the testings. Volturno Crossing is a late 1943 Italy scenario which provides full scale and grim fighting with armor, artillery and infantry. Poison Inferno is a fictive scenario and designed as a infantry only map with short ways, many hiding places and secret routes.
