The version of the multiplayer game has been labeled as 1.4b and it is incompatible with previous versions (i.e. 1.0 or 1.1 or 1.2 or 1.3). Please ensure you only play against people who have the same version of game as you, as this will stop any problems or getting the message “Wrong game version” when attempting to play multiplayer games.
WARNING: New patches modify game data and in some cases, the saves that are made while in missions will not load properly. We highly recommend, before installing a patch, that all the Captains should return to base or to load a previous in base save (after install) in order to avoid possible problems.
