Greetings,

We have made a new beta patch available for you to try in the Members Club. It is a comprehensive update with a long list of changes. You will need to register your game, if you haven't already, and click on the Registered Downloads. We hope to make this official, if no issues are found. Let us know how it works for you.

*Note* - Do to the changes in this version it is recommended you start a new game, as the data files in previous saves are not compatible.

Change List

5/12/2010 – 4.50.10b

    • Fixed a bug that could cause incorrect message post-BG screen about who was
      attacker / defender on the first turn of an operation or campaign.
    • Fixed crash when airstrike bombs or rockets going off the bottom map edge.
    • Fixed potential memory corruption bug with mini-map painting out of bounds

      map when not in contact with the enemy.
    • The overall force strength ratio (ratio of the overall strength of AI playerís side to
      the known or estimated strength of the playerís side) is now given more weight in
      the AI playerís decision making when considering moves on the strategic map.
    • The AI player will favor more aggressive moves on the strategic map when the AI
      playerís side has strategic surprise (i.e. when the playerís side can not move).

  • Map

    • Setup zone now guaranteed to include the squares adjacent to a controlled Victory
      Location.
    • All maps checked for general coding errors.
    • Bridges coded as "bridge" as opposed to the variety of road type elements
      previously coded.
    • Bridge map coding improved to support better vehicle pathing.
    • Maps checked for usage of interior walls
    • Maps checked for usage of "double wide" exterior walls coding method.
    • Reported map coding and map graphic errors fixed.

    This effects the following 7 maps only

    Clervaux
    Hosingen
    Lutrebois
    Magaret
    Senonchamps
    Stavelot
    Vaux Les Rosieres

    Variety of road type elements was limited to "Paved Road" and was used to overcome some particular pathing problems found in these instances - hopefully dealt with now as Bridge map coding improved to support better vehicle pathing.

    Ok.

    I noticed the TLD thread has an ETA for the final patch "next week." Is it the same for the WAR final patch as well?

    And any word on a final COI patch or the status of the MMCC3 servers?

    But again, thanks for these beta patches! I can't wait to try them out!

    Good questions, Dunradal! These Beta patches have actually got me playing CCTLD and downloading CCWAR again. As for COI, I always go back to that.

    ATTENTION


    Please don't use the bundled version of BHQ to try and create an account.

    The account creation website is malware infected and you risk infection

    Please download a malware free and updated versin of BHQ here  http://closecombat.matrixgames.com/WaR/WaRmods.html

    Can you be a little bit more clear please?

    Do I have to uninstall the current BHQ?
    What if I haven't run the setup that's included with WAR?

    After downloading the one you posted do I install it into the WAR folder?

    It's not BHQ that has the malware it's the account creation site linked with that version of BHQ.

    Download the new version and install over the old and you should be good to go.

    Yeah I just wanted him to be clear it wasn't BHQ itself. He seemed confused.

    Does this patch include adding the "night" turns to WaR as in TLD and LSA?

    Last year when the patch was being discussed, one of the postings showed a vehicle with a mortar blast nearby during a night turn:

    The Scenario Editor is not able to load any files.
    GC's
    Ops
    User scenarios

    The deploy bug still looks to be available.
    When I tested on the map Vielsalm the Germans were left with a rectangle area in the center of Town and a very small area in the lower right hand corner.
    Still see where the AI has some difficulty with Deep Water,2 soldiers of a german command group were able to cross where shallow water is but it took about 5 minutes for the other 2 to figure it out.

    And is it just me or did the vehicles get a graphic update?

    I also don't understand why I have 2 teams 1 each from different BG's that are shaded out as being disorganized yet each team had upwards of 8-10 kills apiece in there last Battle.

    I would think so.

    In the last post by Andrew on March 9/2010 he indicated he could play through the problem saved games and this patch was released June 17/2010.
