Thunder at Cassino is a mid-complexity wargame on the Third Battle of Monte Cassino during the Second World War. The game uses the area-impulse system first used in Storm over Arnhem, and to be used subsequently in Turning Point: Stalingrad and Breakout: Normandy.

v22 module changes include:

  • added translation strings for English language, module now in English
  • updated and colour-corrected map graphics
  • updated and sharpened scenario graphics charts
  • added all game scenario OOBs with units ready to play
  • made unit palettes visible
  • added improved and cohesively-sized UI controls for dr and DR
  • removed unnecessary image files, .vsav files, PDF and extra file not needed in directory to reduce file size by 33%
  • removed Spanish text file of rules (not sure how legal embedding the rulebook was anyway)
  • removed side choice menu (since menu didn't respect controlling unit markers)
  • updated some of the game functions/controls
  • file size reduction, down more than 33% despite improved graphics and scenarios added
  • David Janik-Jones used my images and my initial v1.0 work for improvements and updates (Kaiman)
