Fixed the demo version so now your the demo never runs out, but it will still have a time limit once you use up all of the demo play time.
Fixed a bug where if an enemy would die and they had a death weapon, the current player would lose their turn and weapon even if it wasn't they who died.
Fixed a bug with the BuyTime, Round and Start modes weren't working correctly, now Round mode only allows a team of tanks to buy their first turn (as opposed to Anytime in which any tank on the team can buy). And Start only allows each team to buy once at the beginning of each battle. (Settings > Economy Options > Buy Time)
Fixed kill total, now when you kill or damage an ally your kill count is decremented and credits are subtracted from your total.
Fixed a bug where if you would buy a weapon then sell it right back you were still able to fire the weapon, essentially getting it at half price.
Fixed a bug which was causing the end of a battle (when the flags were up) to draw very slow.
Fixed show tank stats so now they are always drawn above the tanks so they don't overwrite the gui. (Settings > Graphics Options > More Graphics Options > Show Tank Stats)
Fixed a bug where if you ended the battle in the middle of a move, the move graphic would show on the next battle.
Fixed the current weapon selection wasn't be set correctly after a turn.
Chatter should no longer occure on the victory screen.
Moved the in game Help link to the main game menu.
Changed Show Points to Show Power/Points so now it can hide player power bar and shield status indicators. (Settings > Graphics Options > More Graphics Options > Show Power/Points)
Increased game performance, opitmized out some unneeded performance counters.
Uncapped the FPS from 60fps, was causing lower than 60fps rates, if you want to use less CPU on the PPC version, lower your CPU speed setting.
Autobuy will no longer buy move utilities for human players.
Computers now only buy move utilities when they have 5 weapons or more.
Decreased the font size of the player list at the top of the screen.
Shield and armor stats are now only listed if the player has them.
