Hey Dane think you could post a screenshot of your update screen with all the current version numbers for APOS and the DLC's, and post what your build version is from the main game screen? I'm downloading the B patch now. I installed the march core update and the first march patch and the district update. Did the DLC's change in anyway? just wondering if i have to redownload the latest version from GG. I noticed the thread with the version numbers over at graviteam is no longer there. Thanks for any help. I'm not much for the modern stuff but will probably pickup Hooper when it goes on sale again.

I second this request. Why do they it so damn obtuse.

This isn't the new March 13 patch.
I haven't downloaded that one yet considering Andrey said they are updating a newer one soon.

As far as I know these are the current versions of the DLCs for this game.
I haven't tried to redownload them yet to test because it takes forever now on Gamersgate to do so.It used to take me 15 mins per DLC now it takes over an hour.I have no idea why or what they changed.Maybe one day when I have the time and patience I'll try it and see if the versions have changed.So far what I have looks good and works fine.

Once the final March 13 patch is released I'll post a new screen of my updater.
I had a stickey of this on the Graviteam forum but the Admin removed it and replaced with his own sticky.

Don't ask me why,I don't know.
I just deal with it the best way I know how.So you guys will have to forgive me if I can't answer all your questions,I still have a lot of unanswered questions myself concerning this game and the way Graviteam presents it.

I didn't think I would be interested in the modern stuff either at 1st,but decided to give it try.

I really didn't know anything about the wars in Angola and what I did think I knew was totally different from what was actually going on there after having done some research on the war.

I always thought of it as some kind of low level infantry guerilla war type conflict.I had know idea that there was this much modern hardware involved in that war.

After playing 1 of the campaigns I was impressed with the fact that the infantry platoons from both sides at least are able to defend themselves from armored vehicles with a variety of handheld AT weapons.

I can actually put up some kind of resistance now if all I have is infantry and my units are being hit by an enemy armored attack.

Nice change from some of the older DLCs where you spend most of the battle trying to hide your infantry to keep them from being slaughtered.

I think you'll like Hooper Bud.

Thx for the help and the screens Dane. The last few weeks i've been taking a break from wargames and now i'm getting the start of the itch to jump back in.

Looks like my update screen is the same as yours, wonder if it's different for anyone who re-downloaded the DLC's? I wish i would of known about there plans to release another patch soon, talk about slow downloads took me almost 4 hours to download the 485 meg file from graviteam, hope it gets posted somewhere else.

I installed the B patch and here's my build number.

Where does the High Resolution Textures Pack go on the update list? I have it at #3. Is that correct?

Thanks.

No!

The Hi Res DLC must be above the March patch(Game Update) for it to work.

Put it on top #1 for best result.

In a way they kind of are.

Flashburn and Krabb with Andreys' help are creating the Longstop,Tunisia 42 DLC I've been clamoring for.
So if we ever see that DLC in this series that would be thanks enough for me.

This seems to be the site for latest patch and most current build (2138)

This (2138) was on the .ua site.

When I open the patch, I get a text file. What am I doing wrong?

Try this 1st open updater go to the text march patch and click select.
If that doesn't work than try this.
This is what I did to update my game.
Create a new folder in your game folder and name it March patch.Open your march patch as a rar file and unpack it to the March folder in your game folder.

Open(start) your game and open the ingame updater,Click the install button and locate the March patch folder you created open it and locate the Core folder open it and select all files till the desc. appears and then select the desc.

It's the old manual way but see if that works.

If that fails look here Tanker and Chashka17 wrote up a way they patched their game.
http://graviteam.com/forum/index.php?topic=11140.30

There is also some other patching tips on the SimHQ forums.

Haven't got a response from the graviteam forum yet, anyone know how we got to build 2167? does it go to that build when you install hooper? I'm still on 2138 and just got there.

http://www.graviteam.ua/help/download-patches.html

Rod said this is where He got the (2167) build number March 13 patch.

I haven't tried it yet.I'm waiting till they have a final March 13 patch.
Since I still mostly play on my other version of this game(Aug 12 patch)I'm in no hurry.
Once NightPostman releases his new uniform mod I think I'll update both games to March 13,otherwise I still like playing with the old uniform mod and it doesn't work with the March 13 patch.

No if you install hooper it doesn't go to that build number,I have Hooper and it runs fine and I'm still at (1980)build number.

From Graviteam forum-

"The version numbers i.e. 2138 vs 2167 are updated via the Core Update .. i.e. http://www.graviteam.com/AP-STAR/gtos_cu_581_eng.exe

I had version 2138, .. and I have just re-downloaded the file mentioned above (see link). Ran it .. and now I'm also on 2167. Smiley

So, it must have been updated at some point, .. although there is no indication that it has been. Huh

I have no idea what's changed in version 2167, .. versus 2138, .. aside from the fact that bigger is better .. "

So it now seems you need to download not only the new updated patch but the new updated engine as well to get to build number (2167).

WOW!

I don't know whether I should be upset at this patching process and lack of clear instruction as to what, when and how, or pleased that Graviteam is taking the effort to fix the game and address issues as soon as they are brought up.

Like I said before I'll wait till the dust settles before I bring my game current.
Most of these updates seem to concern minor annoyances and not anything that really effects play to any degree that would be considered game breaking.

OK,
Thanks Budd.

Wonder if this is the last version of the March updates!
I still have to update my patch also seeing as I'm still at(1980),but I'll see how far the engine update takes me up the build ladder first before I update the patch.

Or I'll just wait and do everything in one sweep as soon as the new DLC is released.
I'm still in the middle of a Hooper campaign,but lately since its been so hot here in Florida I've put my Angola campaign on hold and have been playing a bunch of quick battles in Taranovka so I could look at some snow.

Well,what ya know!

Didn't have to update the patch after downloading and updating the new engine,I'm reading the same thing you are Budd(2167).Thought since I still had (1980) I was going to have to do some more patch updating.That's a relief.

Still having an issue with the 5th squad in my SAR mech.platoons-for some reason the APC gets stuck in a loop and will drive around in little circles until I issue the squad new commands and snap the driver out of this insane circular and odd behavior.

Was hoping this update would have fixed that,it's not a major issue but it is annoying!Brought this issue up on the Graviteam forum about a week ago,so maybe Andrey didn't have enough time to identify the problem and fix it time before this latest update.

I'll probably have to bring this issue up again just to make sure He didn't forget and it can be addressed in the next patch.
