Hampstead, NC, 13 November 2006

While most developers are content to leave their previous work in a perpetual suspended state (Hey, when was the last time Zork got updated? Choplifter? Crush, Crumble, and Chomp? See!) that's not the case for the ProSIM Company. Dedicated to providing their
community with the best possible gaming experience always, ProSIM constantly maintains their older titles, even going so far as making their latest engine fully compatible with previous games. It is this gamers first philosophy that has led to the latest series of patches for the ATF series of games.

Patches are now available for ATF: Armored Task Force, Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War, The Falklands War: 1982, and The Star and the Crescent. The patches fix a series of common errors, along with a few tweaks specific to certain titles n the series.
The following is a listing of the biggest changes that all games bear:

* When planning a path for a hierarchy with a formation the path would shift every time the path was planned, this has been fixed.

* Insert dismount missions now work properly.

* If starting a game without being connected to the Internet the links file could become corrupted. Fixed.

* Canceling either creating a game or joining a game during the multiplayer setup would cause a crash. Fixed.

* Creating Packages now correctly parses the unit, platoon, and company name.

* Other fixes include items such as the "dismount moving" capability will now allow dismounting over elevated special terrain to replicate parachuting and fastroping, and more.

All the patches may be downloaded directly from their respective game pages, located at the Shrapnel Games website, www.shrapnelgames.com

Long considered some of the best modern land warfare simulations available commercially, ProSIM's line of ultra-realistic titles have covered a broad spectrum of conflicts. Beginning with ATF: Armored Task Force, which put players in the boots of tankers in a variety of scenarios, gamers have experienced the next Korean conflict, the pivotal battles of the various Arab-Israeli wars, and the war at the bottom of the world, the Falkland conflict of '82.

Using real-world terrain maps, detailed equipment databases, extensive orders of battle, and an impressive AI, the ATF line has delivered the smell of cordite to desktops around the world for years. Full scenario creation support and the ability to play the titles online, along with ProSIM's commitment to always keeping the games alive through comprehensive updates, has kept the ATF line as fresh as the day it pushed off the phase line.

The next generation of ProSIM simulations, Air Assault Task Force, is slated for release in December 2006. Using a brand new engine, Air Assault Task Force features airmobile operations from the past forty years, and integrates with the older titles by upgrading them to all the latest bells and whistles found in Air Assault Task Force.
