Excellent, we're up at long last. Thank you Lucas!
A quick note. Upgrading directly from v1.00 to v1.21.03 should be comprehensive. Just install v1.00 and then install the beta patch.
And an IMPORTANT NOTE FOR V1.21.03, from the release notes: This version introduces new data files and setup files for the 1805 Grand Campaign. During this transition, older games likely will not work. A new directory for backup files for old data files and setups is added, but players should also backup any custom data files and setups from prior versions. Renaming the old eianw001.ged and eianw001.tpj files to some other number (e.g., 011) may work and may allow older games in progress to continue. However, players are strongly advised to install a new and separate version of the game and upgrade to v1.21.03. Please do not use data file numbers 003 and 004, as these are being reserved for future data files for the 1812 Grand Campaign.
I'm interested in any feedback regarding the classic EiA and alternate EiH setups. They are different, but I want to ensure that each one is accurate, so if anybody spots something amiss then I can fix it now for the official release and not worry about screwing up games in progress later with further data file changes in v1.22 and beyond.
I would greatly appreciate a veteran PBEM group or two giving this update a quick playtest through an economic phase or two, to please verify PBEM still works OK and that the loan money bug is resolved for PBEM. Also, any suggestions for clarifying PBEM file exchanges as described in the manual would be helpful. I cannot do too much to change/improve the PBEM system as it is, but I do want to ensure that it works.
Thank you. Please enjoy!
