Hi Everyone,

We have been reading all of your comments on the Community Hub and have another update for you all. Hopefully this addresses most, if not all problems that have been raised.

Please let us know if you still experience issues on the Community Hub threads.

Changelog:

  • The shark in savo island is bugged, its reef is stuck out side of water and does not move you can see this in the entry scene and during gameplay
  • Corocodiles are bugged, they are completely avoiding to come out of water just like the patrol units they are bugged as long as you do not dive into water you will not make them move.
  • Any units inside the houses and other locations which has entry element (doors + ladders + etc) is bugged, they do not interact with the world at all until you go inside the house. for example go inside shoot them before you kill them come out and they should chase you outside but they remain inside and dont come out and in other words game is paused for them until you go back to the house and it exactly starts from the moment you left last time.
  • Any interaction with houses + windows + ladders is bugged and not working, such as sniper cannot snipe from windows anymore (when he is outside and you want to snipe the enemy inside a house by targeting the window) this does not work anymore his scope is not shown.

Dig up a hole
Attract a enemy officcer so he falls in the hole
Kill every single soul on the map
Look for a key to open the door on every inch of the map
Give up to a faq after a entire hour searching for the key in vain
Learn that the officer in the hole, the only one that which you can't reach the body, has the key.
Rages up... Try again tomorrow.

Do you love stealth and tactics?
Commandos 2 is an exponential improvement from the "Behind the Enemy Lines" and the expansion.
It's hard, it has many levels and it has great "replayabilty".

The only problem about this port to Steam are the resolution problems within the patch on newer OS.

Commandos 2: Men of Courage is the successor of Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines and its stand-alone expansion. This new installment features new characters with unique abilities, such as the French thief and the Russian seductress, and a loot system, much like what is seen in the Men of War games, and new maps of which some in the pacific against the Japanese. Fans of the previous Commandos games will love this title, if not more, despite maybe needing to use workarounds to get it working properly. That's unfortunately an illness among almost all Commandos games, that they haven't been optimised/readied to be used in modern systems. All-in-all a great game!
