BAT 3.8.x to BAT 4.1 Update
« on: October 05, 2020, 11:18:36 AM »

BAT 3.8.x to BAT 4.1 Update




Requirements:

This update elevates your existing BAT 3.8.x PEGASUS install to the latest BAT 4.1 version.

You must have a working version of BAT v3.8  or any patched version BAT v3.8.x

++ Only use on an older BAT 3.8.x install   -   DO NOT USE ON A  FRESH BAT 4.0 RED CORE INSTALL! ++

For first time installs, or updates of versions lower than v3.8, refer to the B.A.T. v4.0 "RED CORE" - The World At War pack thread




Quote
-       New version number v4.1 on startup
-       New B.A.T. v4.x GUI
-       Updates all era modules: DOF, TGA, WAW, JTW
-       Important fixes and file replacements
-       All content of patches 3.8.1 to 3.8.5


BAT_3.8.x_to_4.1_Update.part1.exe
BAT_3.8.x_to_4.1_Update.part2.rar
BAT_3.8.x_to_4.1_Update.part3.rar
BAT_3.8.x_to_4.1_Update.part4.rar


How to install:

Disable all JSGME mods for safety.
Download all 4 files into one folder and click the installer exe. Simply install on top of your B.A.T. v3.8.x, just like the patches.



New Content:

new B.A.T. GUI!

After more than three years, we have given BAT a general makeover with new loading screens and new in-game GUI background.

After consideration and some exchange on the forums we have created a completely different look. BAT now by default comes with a steady steel-metal background as loading screen and in the game. This provides a clearer backdrop for the menus.
(The old backdrops are available as BATMODS option)



There also is a new mission loading backdrop after the briefing:


(image turned out to be from the old "B-17 Flying Fortress" game)

This is is now the new default look and we hope you will like it, but of course you can get the "old" style rotating aviation art back via a BATMODS JSGME option, if you chose so.

*note Nov 8: Mediafire has developed a disliking of this package for the presence of these artworks and since restricted the downloads. To circumvent this problem, I have revised the package and removed this BATMODS package. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

It is easy to set up your own backdrops of choice by simply duplicating this BATMODS folder and set up your own desired images.





overall:

-Catapult Jet takeoff fix (Whistler)
-MTO map static actors fix

new maps:

-Zipolare Anzio

DOF:

cockpit and gunsight upgrades by CWatson:
- LFG Roland D.II
- Berg D.I


TGA, WAW and JTW:
- UFO

Plan B from outer space!



playable if you dare!

It is advisable to keep airbrake constantly deployed when maneuvering at lower speeds, the acceleration will leave your brain behind otherwise.
Lazer turret is fully automatic.

Loadouts come with any combination
-forward laser guns
-laser turret
-Doomsday Bomb

This looks great! Quick question, does this new carrier Ju-87 mod fix the AI problem with landing on carriers?

As usual, smooth downloads and an apparently flawless installation. So far, so good, and once again, many thanks to vampire_pilot and all involved.

(It's probably just me, but since upgrading to Blue Edge, it's as if something reached into my PC and gave it a good smack. It took a few to get the sim up after the installation, but once it was running - click - click - click. Reminds me of the previous undermining of the Java Wall. ;D )

It went on with ease. Thanks for making it guys. It's especially to see a generic allied corvette, and some American ones.


cheers

This Ju-87 lands normally on carriers. I don't know what you are referring to. The previous stand alone instance didn't have a hook at all.
