Updates to Memoir '44 Online have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:
Memoir '44 Online 1.2 - What's new?
Player Search: we've added a search field just above the Players list. Just type a few letters of the player's name you're looking for to immediately filter out everyone else in the list.
Private messaging: simply type /pm @Joe your_message and your_message will be sent to Joe privately. Messages that are intended for you will appear in red in the dialog zone. If the person you are trying to pm has a complicated screen name, you may use auto-complete to type his name: Simply type @ followed by the first letters of your friend's screen name and press the CTRL and SPACE keys simultaneously. The rest of that person's screen name will appear automatically. Pressing CTRL-SPACE again to cycle through all the possible matches for the entered prefix.
Battle Action Replay: go to the game Web site to replay your battles. Simply click on the name of a battle in your Career History at http://www.memoir44-online.com/career/. This will take you to the battle's details with an interactive map which lets you to replay the whole battle turn by turn! You will see the cards of both players, their moves, battles and dice rolled, the losses and medals gained, etc. for each turn of the game!
