I updated to J15, and I noticed that the behaviour of spy zeppelins changed. If your savegame has spy blimps built before J15, they will behave like in J14.

The workaround *should* be to dock the blimps and re-deploy them (not that I have tried that myself).

Updating from J to K1:
Load, then save.
Then, in savefile
Change all

Code: [Select]
mana: 0
on your soldiers to

Code: [Select]
mana: 50
or similar number.
Reload.

It seems, if you upgrade from J to K2 you don't even need to do this, all gals have 50 mana to begin with.

Edit by Meridian: yes, the oxce version used in K2 does it automatically
(only K1 needed manual change)

Upgrading to L1: No special tricks needed, just DON'T UPDATE DURING TACTICAL BATTLE.

L8: If you have an advanced campaign (>1 year) you'll get a message about being a slow a**. Please ignore it.

L10 adds customized versions of Secret Bases for every faction. This feature will only work normally when starting a new game.
Don't despair, however: you can effectively enable it in existing campaign by deleting "alien strategy" section from your save. This will not affect already existing bases.

Nooby question .. This means everything including the "alienStrategy:" line all the way up to the line before "deadSoldiers:"?

For L10, actually what has to be deleted is all stuff right below the alienStrategy: string, that is to say all its content (what is below the line)  till the missionLocations: one  8)

The alienStrategy section doesn't necessarily have to be in one particular place inside the save. Just delete the entire alienStrategy section, including the header.

Hmh. It's not clear what is the alienStrategy section as there are no closing tags. I went with the assumption that everything after alienStrategy which is indented is subsidiary to alienStrategy and thus should be deleted. alienStrategy has no indent and per usual programming practices anything after that which is indented belongs to it. deadSoldiers was the next tag without indent so I left that alone.

So let's see.. Regions, possibleMissions, missionLocations and missions Run, all those were zapped.

Tags have levels, denoted by indentation. A tag ends when another of the same level begins.
Alienstrategy: is a first level tag, as it has no spaces before it. Simply delete from start of it's line, till the start of the next line with no starting space or tab.
In the case of the savefile I looked into, that would indeed be until the start of deadsoldiers:

The tags you listed are all the second level subtags of alienstrategy: in my savefile, so you probably did it correctly.
