I would not suggest using 1.0.1 versions
i'm wondering cause UDM uses 1.0.1 versions. (example: cphaser.hob)
that does not surprise me much. tethys created/edited most of the new colors and not sure what version he used.

here is info on the microprose data patch;
microprose data patch readme wrote:This update fixes a crash problem in Tactical Combat. The game would sometimes crash in Tactical Combat as the ships were about to fire their weapons. This update solves that problem by replacing some of the animation files. This problem has been reported on computers running the Japanese version of Windows
I doubt if modern system have the same issue the "Japanese version of Windows" had back in 1999. :wink:

if you find a value let me know. I think this is hard coded as part of the polygon data of hob file.

the phasers in tethy's phaser pack are very small in comparisson to the thickness of vanilla phaser beams.
so i thought this value is already discovered.

Sorry it took so long to reply. The information on reducing phaser beam thickness: viewtopic.php?f=304&t=1536&p=17727#p17727
