A new version of the DAK II module is available. The new version has all the old FoW custom code stripped out and works similar to the latest Tunisia II, Sicily II and BTR (non-FoW) modules.

No Fog of War? That's disheartening cry

More specifically, the old FoW custom code has been removed. Fog of War is still available using Masking and Divisional Holding Boxes.

My understanding was that the FoW custom code was a nightmare to maintain and could never be applied to the newer modules. So it had to go in the interest of maintainability and consistency.

One thing seems odd: the new module with the FoW code stripped out is 4 times larger than the previous versions (65MB vs 16MB). Why is this?

Better quality image files, the map in particular.

Thanks. Took a look last night. Looks great and seems to load and scroll faster.
