Alright, I was finally able to compare the new version of GoG's Incubation and I:WM with mine version (CD).
1) Good news:
- The exe is updated to 1.52e (at least that's the version number in starting screen, CRC is of course different than mine).
To make sure, somebody would have to test if the following 1.52e fixes are present in game:
- if your unit is in panic you can not use explosion packs
- getting a second absorber armor will only "reload" your first one
- both Incubation and WM work fine with CD-Audio (mp3 files in this case, of course), in both graphical modes (Directx & 3dfx).
2) Bad (?) news: there are still some files with CRCs different than in my 1.52e
iDesigner.exe A85CC7C9 updated file, CRC different than in previous GOG version (expected)
Incubation.exe 5C09287F updated file, CRC different than in previous GOG version (expected)
readme.txt (GOG's readme replaced the old one, no problems here)
Data\Info.lcl 66F1D9F2 updated file, CRC different than in previous GOG version (most likely expected)
Missions\_C_169.lev 1E125091 same file as in previous GOG version
Missions\_C_171.lcl 2A6D8B23 same file as in previous GOG version
Missions\_C_173.lev 67DF2B92 updated file, CRC different than in previous GOG version, modification date 02.04.2011
Missions\_C_174.lev 78E2F574 updated file, CRC different than in previous GOG version, modification date 02.04.2011
Missions\_M_026.lev 453A3A03 same file as in previous GOG version
Missions\_M_030.lev 6FDACF75 same file as in previous GOG version
Missions\_M_036.lev 089EA7D3 same file as in previous GOG version
Missions\_O_053.lcl 0962F5B3 same file as in previous GOG version
Missions\_S_073.lcl A9BF61C8 same file as in previous GOG version
So, almost all these files are the ones I mentioned on previous page:
^These are WM files (don't exist in 1.0-1.03e) but CRCs don't match with my version - it's either different language version or those files were modified when BI: Platinum was assembled. Weird. Most of these files (except _C_173.lev) have later modification times (April 1998) than mine (March 1998). But does it mean they are fixed, or broken? :(
Since these files ARE NOT related to 1.51e / 1.52e update, but to 1.50e itself (mine are from CD version, GoG's are most likely from BI - Platinum), we can assume that GoG's Incubation and I:WM are finally fully updated to 1.52e!
Thank you very much, whoever was responsible for this (Thiev?).
Still, 2 personal questions to whoever prepared the latest update:
1) Are you sure that those 8 files are proper ones? I assume they were taken from BI - Platinum release, not the original Wilderness Missions CD release. But - are those correct?
2) What changes were done to Missions\_C_173.lev & Missions\_C_174.lev? Those 2 files were updated in 2011 - old versions are located in Missions/backup directory.
