War in the Pacific – Admiral’s Edition Gets a Massive Update
Hundreds of fixes and improvements!

Arlington, VT, February 8th, 2012 – Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com), Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) and Henderson Field Designs are proud to release a major new update for their award winning WWII Pacific Theatre mega game, War in the Pacific – Admiral’s Edition! The new comprehensive v1.01.08r9 update contains hundreds of fixes, tweaks and improvements, including dozens of interface improvements! Please note that while it is possible to continue existing games, players will need to start a new game to see the full effect of these data fixes and improvements.

Erik Rutins, Director of Product Development at Matrix Games, said “Unparalleled in its realism and scope, War in the Pacific – Admiral’s Edition is a must-have for any Pacific Theatre buff. This is the sixth official update since the release of Admiral’s Edition and it’s a big one! If you are thinking of starting a game of War in the Pacific, make sure you apply this update first! War in the Pacific: Admiral’s Edition just keeps getting better, and thanks to the dedicated development team and the active involvement of the community, it looks guaranteed to provide years of future enjoyment.”

War in the Pacific: Admiral’s Edition is the result of many additional man-years of development from a dedicated and experienced team including subject matter experts and experienced programmers. This has resulted in an improved War in the Pacific experience across the board. This is the entire War in the Pacific down to individual aircraft, vehicles, ships, guns and squads - more than just a game, it's an encyclopedia of the war compiled from many sources to an unmatched level of detail. Add in a much improved AI and more secure PBEM play and you have the makings of a new classic!

War in the Pacific: Admiral’s Edition is a stand-alone release which does not require ownership of War in the Pacific. The Admiral’s Edition installation process will not overwrite original War in the Pacific files, but instead the expansion installs along side the original installation of the game and runs as a separate game.

The individual features and improvements to Admiral’s Edition are far too numerous to mention in total in this announcement, but the product page link below goes into enough detail to please any War in the Pacific fan.

As our first "Collector's Edition", the boxed version also comes with a Full Color Printed 330 page manual!

War in the Pacific – Admiral’s Edition is a standalone release and does not require War in the Pacific to install and play.

This update is comprehensive and will bring all previous versions of War in the Pacific – Admiral’s Edition to version 1.01.08r9. The download link for the update can be found here. Matrix Games recommends that all owners of War in the Pacific – Admiral’s Edition update to this version. Get more information on War in the Pacific – Admiral’s Edition from its official product page.

Erik- I've DLed the new patch(or whatever), have it it a zip file, placed the file in the main AE folder and tried to open. No go.

What next, please?

Thanks, Hugh Browne

I would imagine that the zip file contains an executable file that will patch the game? Try to unzip it and see what you get...

The version I downloaded was not a zip file, it is an exe. Are you sure you're downloading the right file ?

Depending on the download server you select, you'll get the "exe" file from Matrix
or a "zip" file with the "exe" inside.
If you get the "zip" file, extract anywhere on disk and then execute the "exe".

The auto-updater does not know there's a new version. Say's that I am current.
Will download manually.
