You can install this over an existing 2.01 UPDATE install, but will require an installation over a fresh 1.00 install for any other version.

In Coder Diary #21, I had written:

quote:

You might know that, soon, we will be releasing a JTCS 2.02 bug-fix update. For various reasons, we are being conservative with the JTCS changes, fixing what really needs fixing, but holding back on the non-essentials and/or the stuff with the potential to break things, hence requiring lots of testing. Which we don't have time for right now. No, we need to focus on new game development now...

In the 2.02 Update, the only EXE changes are these:

  • Fixed the night visibility bug(s).
  • For new scenarios, the default, hard-coded GFV (gun flash visibility) is now 6.

    (In the 2.02 Update, there are several data fixes, and much new content. Please look elsewhere for details.)

    First reported at The Blitz, the night visibility bug(s) in effect lifted the usual 1-hex night visibility restriction and had night visibility functioning as if it were daytime.

    I was dismayed by the bug, but equally dismayed (astonished even) that nobody -- not I, not the Dev Team, not even the great mass of players -- observed or reported the bug since February's 2.00 release (and for me and the Dev Team, even earlier).

    I think I understand better why that may be so:

  • Night scenarios are not plentiful.
  • Night scenarios are not played much.
  • The rules for night scenarios are rather obscure.

    Demonstrating my first point:

  • Out of 206 stock EF scenarios, only 16 are night scenarios.
  • Out of 222 stock WF scenarios, just 15 are night scenarios.
  • Out of 102 stock RS scenarios, 17 are night scenarios -- a considerably higher percentage than for EF or WF.

    Why, compared to EF & WF, are there so many night scenarios in RS? It's because night scenarios were introduced to the series with the release of Rising Sun. The great majority of East Front and West Front were developed before Rising Sun's release.

    That so many of us all overlooked the night visibility bug for so long -- I think that demonstrates my second point.

    What about my third point?

    In a perverse sort of way, I'm kind of happy to discover the 2.01 night visibility bug, because it forced us to look more closely at night scenarios. The more we looked, the more issues we saw.

    Refer to the Visibility table on p. 45 of the 2.0* JTCS Manual. You will see where Night Visibility is 1 (unless Variable Visibility).

    Refer to p. 56, where it says:

    quote:

    A set-piece scenario that takes place at night will be so noted in the introduction to that battle, just prior to the recommended side (example: "Tenaru, 7km ESE of Lunga Point, Guadalcanal: NIGHT [Best played as Axis]"). The "Visibility" window of Scenario display (Hot Key I) also states if Night rules are in effect and the maximum visibility that a gun flash can be seen.

    In Rising Sun 1.04, if you launch the Tenaru.scn, the Scenario Briefing dialog indicates "Visibility Night (17)". So too "Visibility 17" in the Hex Info Box.

    Here are the Tenaru.scn specifications. Look for Visibility as the last number in the fourth line of the .scn file:



    Robert@roberto /cygdrive/f/Games/Matrix Games/John Tiller's Campaign Series 2.01 SUPPORT/Rising Sun
    $ cat Tenaru.scn
    10
    Trouble Along the Ilu
    0 1 0 120
    0 0 0 1 17
    0 0 4 8 70 75
    1
    0 110 190 300 3
    65 85 0 0
    /@I<MPhH<K
    /@I<MPhJMB
    3 1 2 3 2 1 1 2 2
    3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3
    1 6 8
    ...



    The blue line, the fourth line, is where you see the (gun flash) visibility. The red line, first number, indicates that this is a night scenario. (The 6 & 8 indicate each side's star shell count.)

    In all games, for all legacy scenarios:

  • Standard night visibility is 1 hex, or occasionally 2, if the Variable Visibility optional rule is in effect.
  • Gun flash visibility (also for illuminated hexes, with wrecks in them) differs scenario by scenario, according to the designer's specifications, as set in the .scn file.

    That is for older, legacy pre 2.0* legacy scenarios. For newer 2.0* scenarios, Dynamic Visibility is specified as, for example:



    0 0 0 1-15[n]
    0 0 0 0 1-2[2] 3-13[1] 14-15[2]



    In 2.0* and later scenarios, night visibility is no longer fixed at 1 (or 2, if the Variable Visibility optional rule is in effect). It may vary, as the scenario designer specifies.

    In 2.0* and later scenarios, in their .scn files, where is the gun flash visibility set? Nowhere! Beginning with 2.02, for now, we have assigned a standard gun flash visibility of 6 hexes. Why 6? You'll soon discover why...

    Let's review the gun flash visibility across all night scenarios, all games:

    Wow! That's quite a scatter.

    In East Front, gun flash visibility is generally a single number, 6, with a few exceptions. In West Front, gun flash visibility is mostly just 1 -- identical to general night visibility -- and ranges up from there to as high as 20. In Rising Sun, much variation, many low, many high, fewer in the middle.

    In other words, gun flash visibility:

  • In EF, is mostly 6.
  • In WF, is mostly 1.
  • In RS, tends to the extremes, few in the middle.

    What are we to make of this wide variation in gun flash visibility?

  • First off, what is a reasonable figure for gun flash visibility? Remember: 1 hex equals 250 meters. For some of those night scenarios, night gun flash visibility is as high as 17 to 20. Visibility extending outward as much as 5,000 meters, 5 kms, about 3 miles? As far reaching as most day-time visibilities. Is that reasonable?
  • Secondly, what about the many WF night scenarios with gun flash visibility set to 1, same as general night visibility. What, so gun flashes offer no extended visibility? Is that reasonable? (Is it even possible that the designers of those West Front scenarios didn't understand the concept of gun flash visibility and mistakenly set, in the .scn file, visibility to the default 1? Or did the rules and/or code somehow change along the way, but the .scn files didn't?)
  • Thirdly, the wide scatter, within each game, across all games -- Is that reasonable?

    In the 2.02 Update, we have decided:

  • GFV is 6 for any newer scenarios, with the new #-#[v] specs. A GFV of 6 just so happens to agree with the most common East Front GFV. It also has the virtue of being mid-range, in between the outlier GFVs of 1 or 2, or 17 to 20, seen in WF & RS.
  • For older scenarios, including likely all of the stock scens in 2.0*, GFV remains set at whatever the .scn file specifies.
  • In the Hex Info box, also in the Scenario Briefing, for night scenarios, Visibility will show 1 (or whatever the Dynamic Visibility for the current turn specifies).

    A standard, fixed GFV of 6 is a reasonable near-term compromise. But consider this: In the early years of WWII in the Pacific, Allied infantrymen were disadvantaged by having rifles that produced significant gun flashes, while the Japanese firearms were almost flashless. Later in the war, the Allies adapted to the Japanese way. For other combatants, other wars, I couldn't say. It's an interesting topic to research.

    In the long term, for JTCS 2.10 and beyond (also for all newer spin-off games), we are considering the specification of GFV on a per country, per year, and maybe even per unit basis. Maybe, maybe not. We'll see.

    But for now (for newly developed scenarios), GFV is simply 6.

    Apologies for the night visibility bug(s). Stuff happens. We aim to do better!

    "

    Where? No change log came with the patch. If it did I can not find it.

    Otherwise not only was I thrilled that this was even available but still being supported after all these years. Excellent work!!

    Primarily the East Front Russian campaigns were corrected for DCGs. I'll post a copy of the readme when I get to my machine.

    Glad you're enjoying it so far!

    • Added a Redraw Display (Alt-D) menu selection (hot key), for fixing any graphics glitches and map display corruption.
    • Added Jump Map (J) menu selection (& hot key) to edit & edmap.
    • Like engine, edit & edmap now have all available hot keys annotated in the top-level menu, also in the status bar.
    • Incorporated Warhorse's new terrain[12]d.bmp files, all regions. These support elevations from 0 to +19.
    • Incorporated Warhorse's new Beach[12]d.bmp files. These show beaches in the proper sandy color.
    • Coded in support for elevations > 12, also separate beach graphics.
    • For all logging, added the option to show in-EXE message pop-ups indicating significant, noteworthy error conditions.
    • Implemented a functioning in-game (for engine only) F1 General Help access of the CS Manual PDF file.
    • On edorg launch, added a message box warning of data loading/processing delay.
    • Redid the implementation of Variable Visibility (optional rule). (Note: Visibility varies only once per turn. The same Visibility applies throughout the turn, both sides, all phases.)
    • In the engine, F2 now summons the EBOOK version of the game Manual (with table of contents), no longer the LIGHT version.
    • Toned down some needlessly worrisome logging "errors".
    • At the Status Bar, clarified use of the Unit Handbook icon.
    • Due to a, for now, unfixable bug, retired Hot Seat Replay. Will be fixed and restored in future. (Standard & PBEM Replay remain intact.)
    • Changed the WF window border & toolbar color to match the EF color. (Had been matching the tropical RS color.)
    • Fine tuned the "duplicate ID" error messages in edorg.log.
    • Further refined the error messages in edorg.log, adding file & line number where the error occurs.
    • Improved (if not quite fixed) night shading in ZoomIn25 (3-key) map mode. Includes three new files: Gray3d.bmp, Gray4d.bmp, Gray5d.bmp.
    • If a unit has no assigned Unit Handbook picture file, attempt to display any graphic defined in its bitmap3d field instead.

    Bug Fixes

    • Fixed a legacy bug involving BunkerMorale (bunkers were mistakenly using TrenchMorale), and revised downward BunkerMorale from +4 to +3.
    • Restored High Details to the Options menu.
    • Fixed edmap & edit toolbars.
    • Fixed an inherited edorg date bug.
    • Fixed an inherited Battle Generator bug.

    • Fixed the bug where edit failed to save A/I (aggressiveness) values.
    • Fixed the Night Visible Hexes bug.
    • Fixed the frontend Turns 0 bug.

    V1.03 - July 9, 2008

    New Features/Enhancements
    • IMPORTANT!!! -Assault Rule Change
    • The new assault routine runs through the casualty processing, then does an odds ratio melee resolution, then does a combined morale test of the defending stack. If the attacker has at least one non-disrupted unit, wins the melee resolution, and the defender fails his morale check, then the attackers win. For assault purpose only, disrupted units have their morale halved.
    • Basically, anything the defender can do to increase his morale makes it harder for him to fail the morale test and thus successfully repel the attack The best thing to do when assaulting is ensure you're assaulting with overwhelming force to provide the victory you seek
    • West Front – 16 new scenarios
    • East Front – 8 new scenarios – Many new Bootcamp scenarios that provide the opportunity to play with the new features, additions.
    • All – Day to Night, Night to Day Capability
    • All – Varying Visibility Added
    • West Front – US Army OOB revisions and mass expansion – 1930 to 1953
    • East Front – Soviet OOB revisions and mass expansion – 1930 to 1953
    • East Front – German OOB revisions and mass expansion – 1930 to 1953
    • Rising Sun – Two new nationalities added
    • East Front – Numerous new units for Germans and Soviets.
    • West Front – Numerous new units for US Army
    • Panzerfaust/Bazooka: These have Assault Values remaining at 1. These are designed to be used differently than the Soviet ATR platoons, they should be rarity on the battlefield.
    • Special Forces: This provides a very few select units to remain hidden when shooting. This is a new code primarily for snipers and/or small commando sized units. This will be a rarity.
    • Sniper: These have an Assault Value of 1 to prevent automatic overrun by an assaulting unit. They should be rarity on the battlefield.
    • Armour Penalty: Armour suffers a 50% penalty (attack and defence) when assaulting villages, towns, suburbs etc. It is best to assault with infantry when capturing towns/cities – which is proper practice anyway!
    • Hidden Anti-Tank: This provides small anti-tank guns (57mm – 6pdr or SMALLER) a 50% chance to remain hidden when it fires. This also applies to Bazooka/Panzerfaust/AT Rifles
    • Artillery vs. Armour: Artillery now has a 5% chance of disabling armoured vehicles.
    • Trucks: Truck Victory Points are now worth 3 per Strength Point. Use them wisely.
    • Truck Carry: Only 3 Trucks are required to carry a 6 Strength Point infantry platoon. MG and crew served weapons still require the same amount of trucks per SP to carry. (A 4 Strength Points MG Platoon requires a 4 Strength Points of Trucks)
    • Halftrack ***: Designate halftracks with improved firepower. They are worth 6 Victory Points per Strength Point, but fire similar to a normal MG. These are new units, and will only affect new scenarios where they are included.
    • Maintenance Units: AKA Recovery Platoon, AKA Werkstat, AKA Dozer. These are units that can REMOVE 2 WRECKS PER TURN. They act similar to Engineers in that respect. You move the unit into a hex with wrecks and leave it there for a turn to start removing wrecks. At this point, these ARE NOT combat units but have some defence, so you will have to secure the area they intend to operate prior to sending them to the frontline. Again, as a new unit, these will only affect new scenarios.
    • New Engineer Capabilities
    • Bridging Engineers: These are special Engineers that can build medium bridges across hexsides. See Manual Section 5.17.1 for more information.
    • Mine Engineers: These are special Engineers that are capable of laying a one strength minefield. See Manual Section 5.17.2 for more information.
    • Construction Engineers: These are special Engineers that can build a block and trenches. See Manual Section 5.17.3 & 5.17.4 for more information.
    • All – Improved Position to Trench by Construction Engineer Capabilities
    • Engineer Trucks: Increased to 6 Victory Points per Strength Point. These are specialty vehicles that can haul pontoon ferries and crewed boats.
    • On map Air Attack Capabilities
    • Recce: These are ON MAP aircraft that provide some intelligence to the operating commander. They can fly pretty much anywhere, but cannot take points. Again, as a new unit, these will only affect new scenarios.
    • Bombers: These are ON MAP flying bombers that have a limited strike function. They can fly to a target on the map, fire at it and since it has run out of ammunition, it will be best to fly off the map. Again, as a new unit, these will only affect new scenarios.
    • Anti-Aircraft: Small anti-aircraft guns are now coded to target Recce and Bombers. Obviously, AA has a purpose on the map now as opposed to just being meat grinders.
    • Training: There are numerous new infantry types with Green or Veteran designations. This represents the combat effectiveness of the platoon. Green stands for infantry that has been rushed through training and have had no combat experience. All of the Stock Units are classified have no visual designation and are classified as Regular – having infantry training with little or no combat experience. Veteran platoons have had ample combat experience. The differences are in the Assault and Defence numbers as well as the weapon attack numbers. A Veteran unit is more likely to put more shots on target than a Green unit in a combat situation. Again, as a new unit, these will only affect new scenarios – the stock units did not change.
    • East Front – Various Graphic BMP improvements
    • West Front – Various Graphic BMP improvements
    • Rising Sun – Various Graphic BMP improvements
    • West Front – Various Unit BMP improvements
    • East Front – Various Unit BMP improvements
    • East Front – Incorporation of some LADMO graphics
    • All – Beginning to implement 24-bit BMP graphics
    • East Front – Talonsoft German and Soviet Order of Battles reinstated for DCG’s (Warning: these are stock; user beware)
    • East Front – German and Soviet Order of Battles revised for use with DCG’s. This is a work in progress, SS units, etc will be coming with future updates.
    • User Mods folder available with various mods that are available to install.
    • Save Game Counter (1.03): This counts how many times the game has been saved and reopened, and will display that information in the turn Dialog at the start of a turn for the opponent. This information is installed in the registry of the game so it cannot be tampered with. After TWO saves from player A, the game is supposed to flash a warning to the Player B that the file has had multiple saves. While not perfect, it should help curb some replaying.
    • New Encryption (1.03): The other anti-cheating measure is a new encryption system for the platoon files to ensure that everyone is using the same platoon/weapon files. It was a problem in the past, and I recently received an email yet again about it. The new Encryption Tool will not be available to the general public. Instead, there will be a place available on the forums for requesting new unit types or revisions.
    • Campaign Save Location: The Campaigns now automatically save, the save game Dialog box no longer appears.

    I'm glad these night scenarios are getting updated. It renders my "WF Night Scenario" Mod obsolete which is totally fine by me.

    I notice however that corresponding pre-RS Night Scenarios for the Linked Campaign Games (Screaming Eagles, Sealion for example) have the old basic night rule, which was simply 1 hex visibility. Perhaps the next patch could address these as well?

    Thanks,

    You can install this over an existing 2.01 UPDATE install, but will require an installation over a fresh 1.00 install for any other version.


    The "fresh" Matrix installation file is 1.01 and the only available downloads at the product page are 1.03 and 2.02 so how do I install this?

    Jason, I have the 2.0 Update installed but am having trouble finding the 2.01 Update so I can then update to 2.02 without doing the whole install again. Can you point me to the 2.01 Update please? Thanks.

    You don't need to. Actually what I would do is start fresh. Install the base which I believe is either 1.0 or 1.01 and then install the 2.02 patch.

    The patches are cumulative. Each new patch also includes everything released in a previous patch.

    Hope this helps!

    The link: ftp://ftp.matrixgames.com/pub/JohnTillerCampaignSeries/JohnTillerCampaignSeries-UpdateDR-v202.zip
    doesn't seem to be working. It has timed out ("This page can't be displayed" screen) every time I tried to download the update last night and this morning.

    Ideas?

    Thanks.

    Keep trying! The first time I tried to download the patch it did the same thing. The ftp site may have been down temporarily for maintenance or to many users online at the same time.

    Cannot access the Map Editor Screen.

    When I hit new it goes to a select region, then asks me the size and then produces a useless blank. It talks about sliders and setting parameters but I can't see any way to get to the Map Editor Screen? Any ideas?

    What region did you ask for?

    What size did you input?

    Which game are you trying?

    Which UPDATE are you using?

    The initial random map generator options was removed in 2.02, leaving just the blank template to start.

    If you would like a randomly generated map that you can build off of, choose to Generate Battle, choose a corps size battle, choose your map type and it will generate something you can resize later. Keeping in mind that you will have to add the details to the resized portion.

    It will create a Random0.map file that you can edit. Keep in mind, it will only be around 120 x 100 in size.

    Ah, so this in the Manual

    quote:

    After you have selected a region, the Map Editor screen will appear. At this screen, you can choose to use the various controls and slider bars to create a new, random map, or you can press the “Edit Existing Map” button to bring up a Dialog box listing all .map files contained in the Rising Sun directory.

    If you are starting a new map, you have two basic choices:

    Use the various controls (slider bars, toggle switches and up/down arrows) of the Map screen to set basic parameters for the map. These parameters include the map dimensions, base level of the terrain, and whether or not you want the map to have a coastline, lake , or a major river. Also provided are “slider bars” for each terrain type. The higher the value of the slider Bar , the more prevalent that terrain type will be on the map (or the wider the river). When you have adjusted these levels to your satisfaction, press the “Make Map” button and the program will create a random map based on your settings. You can then edit this map in the map editor program


    is no longer operable? That is what was throwing me.

    Kind of a pain in the butt, but if you still have an old version of West Front on your hard drive, you can use the old way with sliders to make one, then copy/paste into the new game! I still have very early versions of Talonsoft on my one hard drive!

    Having all sorts of trouble after downloading and installing 2.02. Won't launch games, says audiele.dll missing, replaced that, now getting dozens of unable to load such and such files. Unfortunately I can't even find a clean uninstall method. Is there anyway to get a V1 download to install the 2.02 over? I had 2.01 working fine, but now even after reinstalling that version it doesn't work.

    Hello,

    In Edit sometimes I use toggle fixed ( fatigue, distributed ). Could change the way modify the status of units.
    Now is that: first I put Units on the map and then choose Units and changing status on toggle ( fixed, fatigue, distributed )
    New Buttom with new way: first I choose bottom (toggle fixed ( fatigue, distributed )), then every Units J put on the map have automatically fixed ( fatigue, distributed ).

    This way is faster when I create new scenario
