A new “realistic” ruleset and an update for the free game included with For Liberty!, 1848, loaded, packed, and ready to fire!

Matrix Games and Hussar Games (www.huszargames.hu) are pleased to announce that they have completed an update for their turn-based turn based American Revolutionary War strategy game, For Liberty! The update brings a number of tactical and strategic AI improvements, on top of some battle tweaks to improve on the game’s realism even further. The update also includes a brand new “realistic” ruleset feature where the readiness recovery rate is halved.

Matrix Games and Hussar Games are also happy to announce that this latest update for For Liberty! will also include an updated version of the free strategy game 1848. Based on the Hungarian Independence War of 1848-49, 1848 comes complements of the Hungarian Ministry of Education who largely sponsored its development.

For Liberty! is a turn based strategy game covering the American Revolutionary War from 1775 - 1783 and the Hungarian Rakoczi Independence War which was the eastern theater of the War of Spanish Succession from 1703 to 1711. Each campaign in For Liberty! has a unique soundtrack, a meticulously crafted map covering over 3,000 hexes each, and accurately portrayed and deployed units for each side and time period. There are 8 total campaigns, 4 for each theatre of revolution. At the strategic level, players can manage resources such as recruits, horses, muskets, cannons, money, and supply. Armed with a diverse and realistic military, players can wield fantastic might via four hundred historic leaders and a variety of strategic orders like siege, defend, attack, retreat, and rest.

Can you remind Hussar Games that Jelacic is not Jelasic as in this version of the game.

I guess that we will have to send again Jelacic to Budapest and teach Hungarians that there are other languages as well.

I know that Hungarians have names of other in their own languages which one Hungarian from Kula (Vojvodina, Serbia) explained to me but again I found this not acceptable and I would prefer that some linguistical and grammar rules are obeyed.

I think that as this is international release names of Austrian generals should be in German or English, Russian in English because of cyrilic etc... and all other in languages that are either English or ORIGINAL names how those generals were called when born and christened in church or whatever...

Just found it ridicoulous that I must change name in txt file of Jelacic. And I've already told this numerous times to Bulczu... bah!

BTW, you would all die of laughing knowing that Serbian write foreign names in the way how they are read. I don't find that very convinient. Like this as well.

I purchased my copy of Liberty! from Battlefront.com before it was available here at Matrix. Will this patch work on my copy of the game? I had heard (read) there was going to be a 1.7 patch to bring all the old versions of the game up to date with the Matrix release, but I never saw that appear...did I miss it?


EDIT: Never mind, found the answer by scouring the forums...shoulda done that first! :)
