Does the Matrix edition contain a campaign editor? I found editing campaigns in the Gamersgate edition to be next to impossible.

We did not create a new campaign editor - the operations editor was developed by Graviteam.

I assume then that this is the same version we have from Gamersgate with the additions of the latest versions and updates/upgrades found on the Graviteam website?

I am happy to see it marketed by Matrix because that will open it up to a much wider audience and in no time we will have excellent mods and user campaigns & scenarios as well as user guides, wiki, etc. I have been pretty loyal to the Achtung Panzer series since Achtung Panzer: Kharkov and have found it to have evolved rather nicely and it is still well supported by Graviteam (as well as it can be considering the language barriers). In fact, I would say that the language barrier and lack of wider marketing have been the only things holding this title back from becoming arguably one of the greatest WWII era tactical simulators out there.

I would say it was rather the cumbersome interface in combination with lack of support from Graviteam. When Achtung Panzer: Kharkov obviously did not hit the expected sales rate, they stopped releasing patches. Acquired the game 2 years ago and I'm still angry about the waste of money back then.

No wonder Paradox dumped this publisher.

For $17 at release, AP Kharkov was worth taking a spin. As far as APOS and expansions, already got them on sale at GG.

It sure looks that way. Matrix is selling version 5.77. From what I've been reading in other forums patching APOS is not very intuitive. I'm glad Matrix has this title now because all patches are installed and any future patches should be easier with Matrix.

Patching the Graviteam version was indeed a PITA. Had I known Matrix was going to market APOS, I would have waited.

I had to apply the patches in a specific order and I had to search the Graviteam forums to find the correct order. Not only that, there is a patch and a separate "version upgrade". There is also a huge polygon update to improve the polygons around the village of Taranovka.

I will say that at least the game has been very stable for me and there have been improvements over the older versions.
