This is excellent, thank you!

Before I try though, I am wondering - will this break my ongoing PBEM or other save games?




PirateJock -> RE: DC: Warsaw to Paris Public Beta v1.05 Available (7/27/2012 9:35:45 AM)

Great news - thanks Vic [&o]

Cheers




Vic -> RE: DC: Warsaw to Paris Public Beta v1.05 Available (7/27/2012 9:35:51 AM)

In theory no. But i am not 100% sure to be honest.

Best,
Vic




Emir Agic -> RE: DC: Warsaw to Paris Public Beta v1.05 Available (7/27/2012 1:25:04 PM)

Vic, I have tried the patch. The scroll speed seems better but it is still not as smooth as in my other games. Also, with new patch I'm having CTD at the end of the turn and at the beginning of Int Strategic Transfer phase (see screenshot). Never happened before.







Vic -> RE: DC: Warsaw to Paris Public Beta v1.05 Available (7/27/2012 2:18:28 PM)

@emir,

Yes this is a public beta so I am expecting to catch a few bugs before making it the official patch. Thanks for reporting the first one.

As for the scrolling speed... I spent quite some time on optimizing the code again and the drawing process here, but this is the best you can expect. At least it improved somewhat for you. Although i am sorry to here your still not happy.

Best,
Vic

Vic, I didn't say that I was not happy. Previously it was annoying to the point where I decided not to play. Now, it is better and playable. It's not smooth as I would like it to be but at least it scrolls faster.

Now, I just have to wait for few bugs to be squeezed before start campaigning across Europe. [:)]




Vic -> RE: DC: Warsaw to Paris Public Beta v1.05 Available (7/27/2012 3:04:46 PM)

-deleted-
-never mind already found the bug-




rosseau -> RE: DC: Warsaw to Paris Public Beta v1.05 Available (7/28/2012 1:18:12 AM)

I am amazed how quick you got this beta out. With that in mind, when creating a new SFT type, getting an error on missing png file. So I created a folder and file, but still not working ideally.

Thanks though. I guess you don't take any vacations [;)]




TAIL_GUNNER -> RE: DC: Warsaw to Paris Public Beta v1.05 Available (7/28/2012 4:34:22 AM)

Getting same error....looks like the file path has several forward slashes in it.

Vic -> RE: DC: Warsaw to Paris Public Beta v1.05 Available (7/28/2012 11:30:31 AM)

Also Emir and Treale found a bug with the AI phase. (this might be worked around by setting a game to 'not watch AI moves' )

@Tail,
Thanks for reporting this too. This should also be an issue in Case Blue editor. So good double catch.

We'll get this baby stabelized pretty soon.

best,
Vic




TAIL_GUNNER -> RE: DC: Warsaw to Paris Public Beta v1.05 Available (7/28/2012 5:21:04 PM)

Thanks to you for releasing the editor. It seems well designed and very versatile.

One question before I dive in....I see where you can edit the Ratio for Subformation Types.

Can the game engine handle a 1:1 ratio? I would use squads for infantry..and 1:1 for vehicles and guns..

Would this work in the game?

If you change the ratio you will also have the show the qty of troops in all units on the map and off-map (predef units). Its a lot of work (although it might be done quickly by making an EDITOR event)

Best,
Vic




Andrew Loveridge -> RE: DC: Warsaw to Paris Public Beta v1.05 Available (7/30/2012 6:56:09 PM)

A new version 1.50c Beta has been put in the Members Club with the noted bugs fixed,
and the original post updated. [:)]




Vic -> RE: DC: Warsaw to Paris Public Beta v1.05 Available (8/2/2012 2:00:14 PM)

Any further feedback on v1.50c is welcome.

If all runs well please also report.

best,
Vic

    12. A lot of small bugs fixed

I had to choose between Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris and the expansion to Gary Grigsby's War in the East.

For me, Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue has made ​​so much fun I decided for Decisive Campaigns: Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris. And now I must read this.

I'm very disappointed.
All those years many small bugs stand in the game?
No one has cared about these bugs since the release date?




PirateJock -> RE: DC: Warsaw to Paris Public Beta v1.50c Available (8/3/2012 8:51:07 AM)

Hi Vic

Still on the learning curve for the game so maybe not pushing the game engine too hard but, so far, haven't managed to break 1.50c. Really think the UI improvements work well.

Cheers




Vic -> RE: DC: Warsaw to Paris Public Beta v1.50c Available (8/5/2012 9:16:25 AM)

@templer,

small bugs and glitches, not real (game breaking) bugs.

and yes with complex games with relatively low player counts some complicated bugs or issues only show after months and months.

however we just keep patching. just like happened now.

i hope you appreciate the support of older titles. :)

Best,
vic




gabeeg -> RE: DC: Warsaw to Paris Public Beta v1.50c Available (8/5/2012 12:25:14 PM)

Templar,

This is nothing to be "disappointed" about, check the forums for here for DC:WtP...not much in the way of bug reports or complaints by us long time DC owners (compare this to the level of reports and complaints in just about any other forum here or elsewhere...). There will always be bugs...always. You should instead take into consideration that Vic is still working on this older title and has back ported some of the excellent UI features of his new title (as well as squishing bugs that were not even noticed or reported by the game owners)....to me that is above and beyond what should be expected of a dev.




Templer -> Count on it. I appreciate! (8/6/2012 12:27:23 PM)

As you can bet on it!
One more reason to trust VR design and purpose to spend my money with a good feeling.

And by the way, Decisive Campaigns: The Blitzkrieg from Warsaw to Paris is not an old title.
It's so so great to play as if it were only realeased yesterday.
Your Decisive Campaigns series is a great system. [;)]

Maybe I install my Advanced Tactics gold once again and try again to get on it (again).




alex0809 -> RE: Count on it. I appreciate! (8/6/2012 1:07:23 PM)

Thanks so much for this update! With the editor released, I hope some people will come up with some altered or even new scenarios[:D].

Would you allow importing of some assets from DC2 for scenarios in DC1? For example using Romanians in DC1, adding StuG's to Germanys OOB or similar. (If that is even possible)

EDIT: Also, I'm just noticing, is it intended for the AGN and AGS to be disconnected from the OKH in the OOB window even though they actually are connected?

Adding units is quite easy....[8D]

In fact this is probably the most versatile editor I've ever seen. The sky's the limit as far as I can tell.
