Fire! Fire!

The busy people at Artexsoft have today jubilantly informed drobe.co.uk, and also acornarcade.com, that Pyro Update 2 is now available freely from their website. TEK1608 owners are therefore expected to grab a copy and
update their game software with it.

Pyro is a recent update for Artex's real time strategy game, TEK1608 and adds enhanced missile and laser systems, a re-written Wayfinder engine, improved AI, smoother 'fog of war' as well as other minor enhancements. Pyro 2 features everything from the first Pyro release plus some bug fixes to strengthen the game's stability. TEK1608 was reviewed recently by acorn-gaming.org.uk and reviewer Gareth Moore was most impressed.

"After some more weeks of hard work, Artex is proud to present the PYRO Update 2 for the realtime strategy game TEK1608", writes Jan Klose of Artex. "...An article about the update can be found at: www.drobe.co.uk"

Good news on the update, but still crashing out on my machine when applied. Hopefully the updates have helped in someone elses stability problems. -- Paul Stewart, Bletchley, Milton Keynes
