I understand that...however in the mean time try and do the patches again, it's not as complicated as it sounds. The last patch really improves on things.

I can't upgrade the first two DLC because I bought them from Strat First. This is annoying as there is no other way to upgrade them.However it was so cheap I can except it. If Id paid more I'd be peeved.

In this climate I always go where the games are the cheapest. It's capitalism I'm afraid. If Matrix are the cheapest I'd buy from them. If not I go somewhere else.


+1

After 3-4 failed attempts I finally got everything patched and working. The game is playing smoothly with 580 and all DLCs installed over the Matrix version.

Actually you can update your DLCs, just dl the Russian version from the graviteam.ua site, upzip it then copy just the polys and textures to the appropriate folder and that’s it.

From what I understand in the latest poly updates they are using an upped gunned shader model which is causing 001 critical errors for mostly the Intel graphics adapter so until they release the next patch to fix this then I would suggest not using these poly updates.

For those having problem with patch. Had game and DLC's installed, all
working fine. Once a year I erase hard drive and re-install operating
system. Just got done doing this. First thing I re-install is APOS.
Well it works until install update and patch. Uninstall with
"Windows 7 manager" shareware win7 tweak program removes all registry
reference to apos. Install matrix version of APOS. Run update-(not patch) "Make sure path
is correct". RE-INSTALL directX(freshly downloaded from MS) NOW install patch.
APOS works again Installed DLC's and all still working.

Hope this helps at least one person.

The basic patch isn't too complex. It's really just two separate install steps.

1. Run the 580 update as you would any executable file and point the install patch at your Matrix APOS folder. Install 1 is done!

2. The Updater UI for Install 2 will open automatically once the 580 installer has run.

3. Click the INSTALL button (bottom left)

4. Browse the where you downloaded the Patch and drill down until you see the addpack file.

5. Select it and the patch will be installed immediately.

6. Repeat this process for the District Updates, if desired.

Let the process complete and then click SAVE AND PLAY. Top right of your main window it should say game version 580 May12 patch, or similar words.

I downloaded from Matrix,yet the folder says Graviteam,so how to send to the correct path if matrix path not here?It says graviteam

Which folder says Graviteam?
Matrix game default install is c:\matrix\Achtung Panzer Operation Star.

When you run update it will want to default install to
c:\program file\matrix games\ Achtung Panzer Operation Star (or something)

you have to change this by either typing it in
or the browse button to pick the directory.

What kind of computer you have?
Are you using win7?
Do your other games work OK?
When you run update the little graphic of clock appears correct?
What is your path for the game?

Sorry for so many questions but I know the frustration you feel
and really wish I could help.

Do you live in Michigan..LOL

Is this what you did?

run 580 exe.
after that runs updater window opens, navigate to where you unzipped may patch, install may patch file to correct directory, save and play.

It almost sound reading above that you didn't run the may patch right after the 580. I did this the first time and it still said 577. It was explained to me that the 580 updates the engine, the may patch is the content. The version number won't change until the may patch is installed. If you already installed this way, i have to no idea what wrong.

what he said^

you download it and extract or unzip to a folder. Apply 580 and after that the apos update screen should pop up and then hit install and navigate to where you extracted or unzipped the may patch and click the desc addpack, clock should pop up, after that save and play. Just make sure the install folder for running the 580 and the may patch are the path you installed too, the default is usually not right. Then check your version number. I've installed and reinstalled so many times its second nature now

Here's all did.

I ran the 580 exe. After that was successful, the apos update window opened. I hit install and navigated to where i extracted the may patch, in my case i made a new folder named apos may patch.I highlighted the desc.addpack and hit ok, the clock pops up and it installs. When finished i hit save and play and my version number was updated.
see below.
top frame is what i get after extracting. the second frame shows what files are in the core file, the last frame is the size of the core folder. maybe redownload the may patch? check the size of the core file against mine.

I'd wait on everything else. Just rerun the 580 exe, then right after that finishes the update window should pop up, hit install and go to where the may patch desc.addpack is located and highlight it and install it, the clock should run and when it finishes hit save and play. Thats basically all i did.

Maybe start from scratch? Install base game, run 580 exe. , install may patch. Until you get the right versions with those 3 i wouldnt bother with the district or addons. So it's 580 exe first, may patch right after the 580. then check your version number.

pic is what i have after everything is updated. I feel your pain, i've uninstalled and reinstalled more times than i care to count.I finally can play without the 001 error[so far anyway], so hang in there.
