Call 3.1.1 Emergency

Tuesday, 19 January 2010 Written by 

First of all, thanks for all your feedback for the 3.1.0 release. Thanks to everyone who gave us their thoughts on this version and also to those who reported all the little bugs. I guess the biggest flaw in 3.1.0 were for some the non working save game function. This and other bugs should all be covered by the 3.1.1 patch we are releasing today. Despite 3.1.1 is more of a maintenance release to 3.1.0 we have also a few new features integrated notably the new phase armor plate upgrade for the Romulan Rhienn class. Four maps from our community maps forums have been added with this patch. Thanks Boggz, Chris and funnystuffpictures!

Patch 3.1.1 is only compatible with a previous 3.1.0 installation. Patching an earlier version (3.0.7 and below) results in a corrupt installation.
