Hi Folks,

Any news on the release of the official patch yet? Had to abandon our last campaign due to constant bugs and would like to give it another try. Is it ok to go with the beta version or should we wait? Please can you link me to the beta download if you are satisfied. Thanks, Timo




Steve McClaire -> RE: v5.60.53 (6/19/2012 5:39:03 PM)

Hi Timo,

The beta patch is available via this link:

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3060830

I believe you need to have registered your game with Matrix to download it.

The official patch will probably be out relatively soon, but I do not have a specific release date.  Sorry.





timoshuk -> RE: v5.60.53 (6/19/2012 6:41:14 PM)

Thanks for getting back to me. I'll try the link. I guess if the official is out probably relatively soon it wont change much by the release.[;)] T




villev -> RE: v5.60.53 (7/4/2012 6:46:15 AM)

Any news on the release schedule of the patch? I ordered the game recently as it seemed that Matrix had not abandoned it yet after all, and it would be nice to see the last of the documented bugs fixed soon.




Steve McClaire -> RE: v5.60.53 (7/5/2012 11:30:19 PM)

The beta patch is already available, via the link I posted.  This patch will likely be release as an official update in a few weeks at the most.

Found and installed and the beta already, this was regarding the official patch. Great to hear that it's coming soon!

I'm asking as we are about to start the Grand campaign with a friend and wondered if we should wait for the official patch or not. Will the patch be save compatible and will it fix the last few issues remaining in the bug report thread?




Steve McClaire -> RE: v5.60.53 (7/7/2012 4:14:44 PM)

Save game files from the beta patch should work fine in the official patch.  There will be a few additional issues addressed in the official patch, but since it's not finalized I do not have a list yet.




villev -> RE: v5.60.53 (7/22/2012 6:51:30 AM)

Is the new patch coming soon? We're anxious to start a two-player Grand Campaign, but don't want to risk it with the fatally crashing savegame-bug.




Steve McClaire -> RE: v5.60.53 (7/23/2012 9:55:02 PM)

The official path will likely be released in a few weeks, but this is just a rough estimate.

You can download the beta patch and use it right now. You just need to sign up for the Matrix Members Club.  I believe this is a pretty easy process.

Yes, I am aware of the beta patch as can be seen from the post before the previous one (and reported a game-stopping fatal bug for it too, in the bug-report thread), and was asking because the timetable for the patch was "in a few weeks" a few weeks ago.

I was hoping for a more exact date, but will just be waiting a few more weeks then. But I'd like to point out that few weeks plus a few more weeks is already a month or two. It would be nice to hear a bit more reasuring news from Matrix once in a while.




Steve McClaire -> RE: v5.60.53 (7/24/2012 11:46:42 PM)

It wasn't my intention to mislead people about when the official update would be available.  It is in the works and will be made available as soon as possible.  All I can say in terms of an exact date is 'when it is done', which does not help much either. My apologies.

In terms of the specific issue you reported, it was my understanding that the game stopped with the error message, but your saved game file was fine.  I want to be sure I understand how the issue is impacting you -- were you able to continue the saved game?  Did the error happen again at a later time?

Thanks,

Steve

The error message was "Unable to save file. ..." - the attached save is from before the crash. Did you try it and did it crash for you? The error happens every time the next battle in the save ends, in whatever way, as I reported. I guess the phrase "Crashes every time." might be interpreted some other way too, I could have been more verbose in that. So, to be extra clear:

1. The save is before the last battle in that particular campaign turn.
2. The game crashes after the battle, reports "unable to save file", and indeed does not update the save.
3. Loading the save again and replaying the battle does not solve the issue- same crash occurs.
4. Ergo, the campaign can't be continued.

The save was in a single player campaign, as reported. I started this one just to make sure that everything is working properly (as there seemed to be unresolved issues still, see below) before starting a full two-player campaign that I would not like to cancel in the middle because of some fatal bug.

Message #12 by xe5 in the Public Beta v5.60.53b - bugs/issues thread reports something similar, as does #7.

Similar issue is reported in the thread titled Game crash. (I would have made those proper links but some forum security feature stopped that.)

(edited for grammar)




Steve McClaire -> RE: v5.60.53 (7/25/2012 7:21:49 PM)

Thanks for the clarification.  I was under the impression that you'd sent a saved game file from after the error.  I had started the first battle (South Oosterbeek) but did not play through to the end as I thought that the problem had occurred prior to this save.  I can reproduce the error and will look into it, probably this weekend.





Steve McClaire -> RE: v5.60.53 (7/30/2012 6:48:17 PM)

FYI - I was able to debug this over the weekend and it will be fixed in the official update. Thanks for your information.

I will see what can be done to expedite the official update, or to release another beta update if that is quicker.

Steve

Great! I'll be waiting for the official/beta patch then.




Tejszd -> RE: v5.60.53 (11/14/2012 8:15:14 AM)

Any ETA on the official v5.60.53 patch as the beta version was released on 3/14/2012?

Additional bugs/fixes where mentioned in this thread and this other thread http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3060868 as coming in the official patch? [&:]




Bordic -> RE: v5.60.53 (11/25/2012 2:22:26 PM)

is this official patch still on schedule?




stolidog -> RE: v5.60.53 (12/2/2012 3:47:50 PM)

Whats the status of the beta patch being made official? Matrix stated months ago that it would only be a "few weeks"

This is very frustrating........




Tejszd -> RE: v5.60.53 (12/11/2012 3:39:46 AM)

Bump!




JiminyJickers -> RE: v5.60.53 (12/11/2012 8:58:39 PM)

Yeah, any info on the patch?  Still waiting to see if it is worth buying.




col kapa -> RE: v5.60.53 (12/14/2012 11:24:03 AM)

Just finished head to head Grand Cam (using Himarchi)
We had no probs[:'(]
The previous 4 attemps before the patch, all crashed
Happy days




Tejszd -> RE: v5.60.53 (12/28/2012 6:01:37 PM)

Glad to hear the beta has improved things.... But would still like to get/see the couple known bugs with it fixed and it made official.... Any ETA Matrix???

In June, six months ago, it was "relatively soon" as posted in the 2nd post in this thread....

+1 !




Sweep14 -> RE: v5.60.53 (1/2/2013 11:03:51 PM)

Well, what's worrying me is that Steve hasn't post anything new for more than five months now.
Not sure why, everything seemed in place for a 2012 release for this new patch.
Probably that CC PIF took all the team's time.
Maybe, maybe, will finally receive some good news, but I'm not optimistic at all




Steve McClaire -> RE: v5.60.53 (1/3/2013 7:43:18 PM)

Yes, several issues, including Panthers in the Fog development, basically halted everyting else over the last six months.  I will see about getting an updated EXE available ASAP, even if it's just 'slap this over the top of 53b for now'




villev -> RE: v5.60.53 (4/28/2013 7:49:11 PM)

Hi,

I'm back from a half-year work assignment abroad and decided to finally get the campaign started as the patch would have been sure to be ready after 7 months of 'soon'. Well ...

So, are we getting the new patch now? There are still the issues that probably will stop a campaign mid-track (as reported in the bug thread half a year ago).

Sweep14 -> RE: v5.60.53 (5/18/2013 4:09:53 PM)

Well it's been more than 5 months since Steve Mc Claire last message so don't get your hopes high. Seems this patch is a nightware to release




Tejszd -> RE: v5.60.53 (5/18/2013 5:14:21 PM)

Come on Matrix!

There are known issues in the last beta patch and at least some of them have been found/addressed per posts by Steve so when can we the buyers of LSA get them???




kweniston -> RE: v5.60.53 (5/18/2013 11:00:01 PM)

I second that; let's get those LSA issues fixed, finally.
