@morge, do you have both the Beta and the Full game installed? It might be worth uninstalling the beta?

Yes it was fixed. It may require restarting the scenario however (or attaching him in the next one).

We generally don't mention "minor" fixes on these lists.

Hello, but just these "small" fixes would have been interesting in the mention, because here many reported and not even times the admins regestrierte errors were described. Very sad what is happening here.
If you find mistakes may keep them or send to Google, the Google there are errors

Do the "small" fixes include unit stats being wiped between scenarios making some Steam achievements impossible to obtain (Ex. Purple Heart)?

For the specialization tree, will it take effect in the middle of a campaign or do we need to restart from the beginning?
