How to "install" this patch: Unzip the downloaded file, then simply move the included files into the corresponding BGE v1.0 folders, overwriting the existing files when prompted.
Although a ReadMe file with the information below is contained in the BGE v1.1 download, some people might find it useful to see the changes prior to downloading the zip file.
¢ Added a "Check Line of Sight" command, which is similar to the "Measure Range" command except that no text is shown and the snap-to-grid feature allows you to snap to corners of grid squares or to the middle of a side of a grid square, in addition to the usual center of a grid square.
¢ Added a "Measure Move" command, which is similar to the "Measure Range" command except that a thicker and semi-transparent black line marks the unit's starting location while the user moves the unit around on the game table. This should be particularly useful for playing tabletop miniature games such as Warhammer, where units are allowed to move x inches/centimeters.
¢ Added an option to disable rotation of units with the mouse's scroll wheel.
¢ Added the ability to cycle through the cards in your hand while using the Card Table, with the [\] (backslash) hotkey.
¢ If rotating a unit/s with the mousewheel locks up your computer, you can now press the Shift key briefly to exit an endless loop cause by a race condition.
¢ Change: The "Measure Move", "Check Line of Sight", and "Measure Range" commands are no longer available to free-floating components.
¢ Bug fix: The "Measure Range" feature was not working properly if the game table was panned during the operation.
