- SPS releases 0123 and 2269, despite having an earlier date recorded (2.9.92) are in fact later releases, with the passenger bug fixed. I don't know if they are different to each other, i.e. if one fixed some bugs, and the other fixed some more.
Ok. I finally have some definitive
answers after much investigation!
You were right! 1960 is definitely the first
release of Frontier. The final release (on floppy disk) appears to be 0123 (release 5).
I found this out by searching the main file for the string 'release' and it gives you the version number as well as the release number!
Check it out:
Frontier 1960 = (Release 1) v1.00
Frontier 0505 = (Release 2G) v1.01 (German Version)
Frontier 2745 = (Release 2F) v1.02 (French Version)
Frontier 2269 = (Release 4) v1.05
Frontier 0123 = (Release 5) v1.06
Frontier CD32 = (CD32 Release 1) v1.10
This seems to indicate that there are still a couple of missing English versions from the SPS website. It looks like releases 2E and 3 (v1.03 and v1.04) are still to be found. Maybe these versions weren't released in English?
I think its time for all you guys with an original copy to start checking your main Frontier file with an editor!
