The North American release cd-rom was version 1.1. It was available in retail from Nov 22, 1996.
A v1.2 patcher was released just a few days later.
The European English cd-rom followed somewhere mid december (with different cover art) and started as version 1.2 (it's the version i bought back in the day).
I assume the German language version started as v1.3, otherwise I can't see why Microprose would have released a german language v1.31 patch.
>IF< I remember correctly, the German version was actually delivered with the patch on the CD.....can't remember were I have the CD in the moment....
Funny enough, I always mixed them up when I wanted to play either or.....and MoO2 complaining, insert CD :D
And why do the American version always have to differ from the European? :D
Reminds me of Battle Isle series....just saying ;)
And is it already so long ago that we bought those games? :O
(thanks for the info!!)
