We are happy to announce the release of the v1.02 update for the turn-based grand strategy game Time of Fury. The update itself is massive, containing gameplay adjustments such as supply changes, UI changes, and AI fixes.

The AI gets a slight boost in making itself more challenging, with the AI considering reinforcements to units sooner and USA AI trying to land in Africa as long as it is not at war with USSR to follow closer to historical timelines. A number of changes that are in the update affect the air and sea war, such as if a fleet is supporting a convoy only if it follows certain rules and the ability to see air superiority and range.

It took as longer than we wanted but personally I think it was worth to wait for this patch.
The fixes, changes, and especially new improvements should make this game even better.

Again, we are going to continue to hear your voice in terms of upgrades of this game and hoping to release one more patch this year.

Is the final patch any different from the last beta?

Looks good Doom. I'm going to try it on my netbook computer. I hope it has enough power. We'll see.

Thank you for keeping this game alive and improving it. As I always said this can become a classic like The War in the Pacific. Keep up the great work.

Any chance of porting this to an Android tablet like the one I'm on now... Asus Transformer or even ... gag... an Ipad??

We did really not checking the possibilities yet, but honestly I think that the chances are rather minimal, due to the the age of the engine, it's complexity and also the GUI which was never designed as one capable to be played on touchscreen.

Yes it's a big market but beyond the engine. If it had been possible I'm sure it would have been ported.

IMHO opinion gaming will be moving largely to tablets. It's just more fun and easier, and the processors, memory and video capabilities are improving a dramatic rate.

The days of the $50 game are numbered. High end titles will go for around $10.

Just my 5 cents.

I've got nothing against selling the games for 10$ at the release date. We just need you to buy 5 times more of them.

This patch has a fundamental error. All the strengths have increased ten times - so that divisions that should be 11,400 strong are 114,000 strong!!

Do they not test before relasing this crap?

You know those values are cosmetic and do not affect the gameplay at all?

They are not cosmetic, I buy these types of games for their simulative capacity, and how close they come to reality. 650000 man corps and 115000 man divisions are not reality.

Actually those values are cosmetic.
Surely be fixed in next patch.

Therefore the strength point calculations on which combat results are based should be unaffected, but does the casualty figure presentation error carry forward into the total casualty figures in the report section.

By cosmetic Doom means the effect on any game results is zero which is surely true. The value (for game play decision making) of the casualty reports is pretty minimal even when working properly (the 'game feel' value is certainly there however). I haven't looked yet, but I have played the game a fair amount and the effect of this bug appears to be very minor. Been waiting for 1,02 quite a while. looking forward to giving it a try.
