20th free update released
2009, the year the original BOH was released: (more than) 10 years ago. Over time, BOH received many free updates, and the physical edition produced in 2018 was supposed to close the game's development cycle. Yet, Blastaway brought some video system features/improvements that just had be backported to BOH. And now, the 20th update is available!
- Simplified and optimized CRT pixel modes.
- Made 4x LCD pixel mode slightly brighter.
- Added 6x pixel modes.
- Added hardware-accelerated zooming for solid pixel modes to AmigaOS version.
- Added Italian brief to mission "Faces".
- Made a few minor fixes.
- Updated manual.
To update an installed copy of BOH, simply install the new version over the old installation by means of the supplied installer.
Even more good news for the owners of the physical edition: due to the very limited production runs, the CDs were duplicated (i.e. burned), not replicated (i.e. glass mastered), and the factory was asked to leave the CDs open to make them updateable in case of future updates! The CDs can updated by burning a new session/track that contains the files included in the new CD ISO image.
*** WARNING ***
Updating a CD is a delicate process that might damage the CD, so it is necessary to have specific skills and tools. If you are not completely sure, do not attempt the update. IN ANY CASE, UPDATE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
