This new patch modifies game data and in this cases the saves that are made while in missions will not work properly. We highly recommend before installing this patch that “all the Captains should return to bases” or to load a previous in base save (after install) in order to avoid eventual problems.
The version of the multiplayer game has been labeled as 1.2 and it is incompatible with previous version 1.0. Note that the multiplayer version for patch 1.1 is in fact the same as for gold: 1.0. Therefore it is not allowed to join to a server having different version that one is using, a message "Wrong game version" is popped up when trying to join to a different multiplayer version.
