I decided to try to play a 1.21f patched game with 1.29f... and got a nice surprise. I've attached a small screenshot for your convience. This is what I got upon loading. Background: I was playing the Americans on chieftain level. The year is 1848. To make a long story short... the load box said... "Future Tech 1848 Passwords Unsatisfied" (I cut my real name out for protection ). Two things: 1) I was not researching any future tech at the time- I was in the industrial age, IIRC. 2) Passwords? What passwords? I'm wondering if this patch is designed to support PTW. It certainly looks that way. Nuts- the server doesn't support .bmp. Sigh.. I'll convert and post it in the next one.
