air, it would stop acquiring other targets. Changed so that non-AI lurkers
won't unburrow when attacked by air, which is a better idea all around.

http://gamefixx.compusa.com/tournament/default.asp

What's fixed in Patch 1.08 (Includes previous fixes)

* Adds support for a new template "Top vs. Bottom". This template
functions like Melee, with the exception that players in each half
are automatically allied and share vision at game start, thus
removing the "who am I allied with" question (and reducing the
amount of clicking done after the game starts). The game creator
can move players around between the two sides as needed to assign
teams properly. Note that Top vs Bottom only works for games with
two sides - if you want to play 2x2x2 games, you will still need
to use Melee.
* Adds support for Game Recording. When a game is over, there will
be a new button "Save Replay" in the victory/defeat screen. If you
save a replay, you can watch it at a future date. Replays are
saved to the "replay" folder inside your Maps folder. Create a
game and pick your replay from the "replay" folder. A replay is
always passworded. Up to 7 other people can join your replay game
to watch it with you; chat is from the people currently connected
to the replay game. Replay files can be transferred to other
people automatically (if someone joins your replay game, they get
your replay transferred to them via the automatic map download
facility), or you can copy your replay files (replays end in .REP)
from your "replay" folder to a desired destination manually. NOTE:
game recording does not work for Team games (Team Melee, Team Free
for All, Team Capture the Flag).
* Adds support for gateway selection. You can now specify which
Battle.net cluster to connect to. In normal cases, you will do
nothing, and you will be sent to the "closest" Battle.net cluster.
If you wish to override the automatic selection, you can pick a
cluster manually.
* Save Game clarification - the save game window now shows: Saving
Multiplayer Game Save Game Name: XXX in order to avoid the "Saving
StarCraft Virus 1.0 to Hard Disk" joke.
* If you are really clever, you can crush tanks by landing buildings
on them. This is the unexpected consequence to fixing a cheese
that allowed players to have siege tanks underneath barracks.
* Better proxy support
* Clearer battle.net messages.
* Updated "Connecting to fastest server" messages to be clearer.
* Ladders maps updated.
* Ladder cheating fix - Ladder map alteration fix (Japanese version,
too!)
* Fixed various language translation problems.
* Fixed "gliding SCV" and "teleporting drone" bugs
