b23 - b24 patches incompatibility

Postby Overlord2 » Mon Sep 30, 2013 7:21 am

The new patch b24 by LB is incompatible with older b23 for the reason of difference in internal date (no other changes in code). Consequently you cannot hold a game with players who got older version b23, also you cannot use mapmods, because they are built on b23. I hereby add a link for old b23 versions of the executables updated with fast fade and desabled Vsync, which significantly improves performance of the game - each screen loads much faster. Just extract these files and use them instead of b24 executable. For dosbox line use Orion2~1.exe when you want to launch Orion2v140.exe. Note that some OS are case distinctive, so you need to spell the cases correctly.
