Space Patch Information

NameDateSpace VersionRequiresObsoleted


This patch updates the gun handling code so that it triggers EV_ATTACKED_OTHER events correctly. Also in this patch is a correction to the torp handling code so that a photon fired on it's own (eg ft 0) causes damage if it hits the target. A SEGV in the undocking code which is triggered if the undocking fails was also corrected.

NOTE: See the information about S71115 for the changes needed to support the new console arrangements which are in this release.
