We've uploaded the Beta version of the 1.04 Comprehensive Update available to our Members Club. While we do final testing we figured we'd offer you a change to get it early as well. This is still a beta, but it's stable and solid as far as we can tell. See the change list list below for details.

You can download this as a Registered Download as long as you have registered your John Tiller's Campaign Series serial number in our Members Club (click on the MEMBERS link in the top nav bar).

Change List:
• New Features/Enhancements
o All – Assault Rules have been enhanced and are now Optional.
o All – Visibility Rules have been enhanced and are now Optional.
o All – Graphic glitches were corrected
o All – Reinforcement numbers were increased for Dynamic Campaign Games.
o All – Revisions of Order of Battle where issues were found. Thank you Richard, Gary and Arkady.
o All – Platoon files were updated for consistency.
o All – Weapon files were updated for consistency.
o All – Unittext files were updated.
o West Front – Dutch Order of Battle has had a huge update. The Order of Battle additions are primarily relevant for 1939 and 1940.
o West Front – A few of Huib’s scenarios were updated utilizing the new Dutch Order of Battles.
o Rising Sun – A series of Curt Cabbage’s scenarios have been added. They can be identified by the scenario BMP with the notation: “Cabbage Collection”.

• Fixes
o East Front – Encounters file was corrected and updated. Thank you, Richard.

Hi Greg

Thanks for making this available.

Will there be any difference between this beta patch and the final public release, that would need me to download it again?

If all goes well, as I believe it will, no. There shouldn't be any difference.

Of course, I've been wrong before.

If possible can a note be added to the Public Release message on the forum to let us know if we need to download again from the beta patch.

I've dl'd and installed and am off to give it a whirl

Many thanks to Jason, Matrix and the Beta Brigade for all the hard work.

Remember the new assault rules are OPTIONAL, you will have to CHECK THEM ON in order for them to work.

As with the existing Optional Rules, once you turn it on, it will default to be on for all your new games.

Old battles should be finished prior to installing the 1.04 UPDATE. The default for the 1.04 UPDATE is that existing PBEM games will revert to the OLD pre 1.03 assault rules.

At some point, can someone provide an overview of what the difference is between the optional and default assault rules?  Or is that explained somewhere within the patch documentation?  In choosing whether or not to use the default rules, it would be great to have some understanding of the implications and unlike something such as "armor facing rules" that is fairly obvious in terms of impact, enhanced assault rules is highly vague.

Look in the Manuals folder, there is a document that explains the enhanced assault rules.

I think the poor ftp server has fallen over under the strain - no response.

edit: turned out to be a browser/ftp compatibility issue, downloading now....

cheers

I understand that there are suppose 2 version of patch ...1 for the full update of 1.04 and another to patch from 1.03 - 1.04 , so that for those who want to patch 1.03 - 1.04 need not to d/l full 225MB patch

Thank you Chris Merchant, for your reply. I managed to download it using Star Downloader. It lost the server connection a couple times, so it took awhile, but I got the whole patch.

Available? Not from where I sit.......

I can log on to the forums, but not the 'members' site! Yes, I 'joined', for the last 'upgrade'!

I'll just wait for the 'general' posting!

If I have version 1.2 can I skip the installation of V1.03 if I downloaded the 2MB V1.04 patch?

Artur.
