V 1.03b Update - PC version 07/30/2007
New Update for the Game 1.03b - some minor bug fixes
There is also a stand alone update that lets people play in Windowed mode if you have the desire. You just unzip the executable to the game directory and make a shortcut of it. If you use this shortcut/executable then the game runs windowed....make sure your resolution is greater than 1024 by 768 though or you will get the task bar below the program and have problems accessing the buttons or window frame.

New Update Available 1.03a
I seemed to have included a rare but annoying bug in 1.03 that permanently eliminates Garrisons if the they were wiped out in battle even if the defender wins. Sorry about the hassle but if you update to 1.03 early you should move on to 1.03a. Thanks
