Hi all,

This Beta Patch only works for Matrix version, NOT for Steam version.

1.60b is still in PRIVATE BETA. Private beta is much like public beta, except that there is no Matrix installer. It thus also means that it is still in testing and might not be fully stable.

Please DO(!) report in this thread if you have installed and are running the v1.60 without any issues.

If you are uncomfortable installing files manually or your anti-virus software is not playing ball please WAIT till this patch goes gold or a matrix public beta patch is created.

If not keep reading... please do...

Install instructions

0. Make sure you have the latest version (1.52 or higher) installed and fully updated.

1. Download the ZIP: http://www.vrdesigns.net/privatepatch/Private_Patch_Dc1_v160b.zip

2. Find your Warsaw To Paris game directory.

3. Rename your existing WarsawToParis.exe and defaultmod.txt to something like WarsawToParis_backup.exe and defaultmod_backup.txt

4. Unzip the zip downloaded in step 1 and copy the contents inside your game directory. (overwriting where necc.)

5. Start the game and verify you have v1.60b in the left-top corner of the main menu.

Changelist 1.60b

-Fixed a nasty supply bug in the 5km/hex scenarios. Big thx to Bobarossa for spotting it.

Changelist 1.60

-Big update of the core code base of Warsaw To Paris fixing loads of minor issues and glitches

-Minimalist Counter option added

-Regime Coloring option added

-In-game resolution changes added

-Possibility for windowed play added through windows.txt config file

-High Speed map scrolling option added

-New variant of Poland 1939 scenario sporting a Hybrid AI (dc2/dc3) to provide you with a new opponent that plays differently than what you where used too!

ps: There was a crash report http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4069353 that I could not reproduce with the latest build. If anybody can let me know exactly how..

Best wishes,
Vic

Hi,

The initial impression is good and without any problem.

Add "Music / SFX" to the startup screen is good and perhaps a option to add also on DC2.
And no more "knipperlicht" labels, dat is heel fijn.

This is one for the holiday's, thanks.

Hi Vic

There is a problem with the 1.60 beta patch when trying to play the new hybrid AI Poland39 scenario directly from the main menu

The engine searches for: "Poland39hybrid.dc1", but the scenario file is named "Poland39hybridai.dc1"

Simply renaming the scenario file fixes the problem, though. Or loading it directly, of course.

No playtest yet, though

Regards

I had started playing with the 1.52g patch as the Germans when I noticed the 1.60 patch. The newer patch seems to use MUCH more supply than the old one. On May 14 with the 1.52 version, I am keeping up with supply requests at 21000 per turn. With the 1.60 patch on the same date, the Germans are requesting 90000 supply from OKH and many units are now at 70 to 80% supply levels.

edit: did some testing. v1.52g: Normal AI difficulty, Normal AI speed, did not move any units
start of May 10: Supply Out request to OKH was 35,273 (how much units request)
May 11: 28,767
May 12: 22,576 (dropping about 6000 per day)

V1.60, Normal AI Difficulty, Fast AI speed (speed names changed between versions; chose fastest), did not move units
Start of May 10: 50,657
May 11: 56032
May 12: 61698
May 13: 67666 (rising about 6000 per day)

Hi Bobarossa,

Thanks for these test results. I remember having had problems with this as well before uploading the private patch.

Thought I had solved it. Will double check.

Basically you are running out of supplies in v1.60 right?

Best wishes,
Vic

Yes, was well in trouble by 7th turn. I've modded scenario to give me 37000 supplies per turn but have only played 2 turns so far. I didn't realize slow AI speed took so long (~1 hour; a big thank you for letting AI continue running while minimized!).

Thanks for spotting it bobarossa. It was quite nasty, but I fixed it now for 1.60b.

To see the fix in effect you'll have to restart the scenario though. It was a big related to setup of the scenario and the special 5km/hex rules (10km hex is std rules for dc1)

Best wishes,
Vic

Thanks for the quick response. Unfortunately, it now requires a username and password to start the game!

I don't know if it is really important (version 1.60b):
- the player can have access to the leaders' pool, but it is useless. You can't replace a leader in this game.
- the player can use the button "create new units", but it is also useless, since he doesn't get any replacements during the game.

Regards.

Thanks for helping out here. I'll aim to fix it asap.

Is this supply bug for the Germans in the French campaign new or restricted to the 1.6 beta patch? I remember reading awhile back a French campaign AAR which ended due to German supply problems. I am just wondering if the bug is also in 1.52g.

The reason I ask is I have a French campaign PBEM planned to start shortly. If there is a bug, I would much rather wait till it is definitely gone rather than start, put in the many hours and have to end the game due to a supply bug. Thanks!

Nope the bug i fixed here was related to the code base change between 1.52 and 1.6

I am not aware of any earlier bugs. I remember a German player having reported problems but never got a savefile to inspect, so it might have been related to supply mismanagement with HQs as well.

If you use the Matrix version (not the Steam) and run into an issue here I can modify your savefile and issue a patch if you find this "ghost" bug, ok?

I can be reached on vic@vrdesigns.net

Best wishes,
Vic

Ok, great! We have 3 turns left in the Polish campaign. Once we wrap that one up, we will start up the French campaign.

I get a proj.dat type of file if I try to start the game through the old shortcut. However, game works when I created a shortcut of the application file.

Hi Again,

One thing to look at changing in my opinion is the "text" results after a battle (battle screen). The script color closely resembles the background color and is very hard to see.

If you are using the Matrix version you could download v1.60b2 which adresses that issue:

Hi,

Please check 2 things:

You sure it says "160b2" in the main menu in the top corner, not "b", but "b2"

You also sure you copied the 3 graphics file from the .zip called paperbackground<1/2/3>.png in the graphics/systemgraphics/cat1 directory?

Best wishes,
Vic

It still says 160b, the desktop shortcut from the original does my work anymore, therefore I just created a shortcut of the exe. Will the official update allow me to use the desktop icon that shows the game manual and other matrix items?

I forget what it's called
