First off, I love the game and many of the features in this new update, but I've had a couple of issues.
- With, 1.0.7, the game worked smoothly and seamlessly on my system. 1.0.8 has caused some pretty severe lag issues. The game freezes for a few seconds while cycling between units. Long animations (movements longer than about 3 spaces) will cause a brief freeze, and there is also a freeze as units are unloaded from helicopters or vehicles.
-ASVs and MRAPs do not always see one space in front of them when travelling down roads. As a side note, looking forward to the convoy option because now, road movement is rather tedious with too much risk of losing a Husky even with leap frogging combat vehicles.

If the lag issues are because of my system, I'm more than happy to update the settings, but it was working fine with the previous patch. This is annoying enough that I don't think I play again until it gets fixed.

We have received the report of lag and have managed to recreate it on certain of our test machines. We have fixed the issue and will release an update early this week.

Just stick to 1.0.7 for a day or two , apologies for the hassle.

I just wanted to mention that I get the lag as well - in my case, the game hangs at the end of a unit's turn for several seconds (i.e. either when it runs out of action points, or when you manually put the unit on standby). It starts to be noticeable about 10 turns into a session. By turn 20, it becomes 30+ seconds per unit, making it difficult to play.
You may already be aware of all this, of course :)

Another bug I spotted, which I think was in 1.07 as well - when a Taliban technical is damaged and leaves visual range of your units, you can still see the smoke coming from it even when the unit is hidden (meaning you can still see the hex it's occupying, even if you're not supposed to).

It works well, except the 'r' key will trigger the promotion of almost all units on the map.
Thanks for the work. :)
