This Beta Patch only works for Matrix version, NOT for Steam version.
1.04 is still 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 running the v1.04 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...
1. Download the ZIP: http://www.vrdesigns.net/privatepatch/BarbarossaPrivateBeta104.zip
2. Find your game directory.
3. Rename your existing Barbarossa.exe to something like Barbarossa_backup.exe
4. Rename your BarbScenarios directory to something like BarbScenarios_backup
5. Unzip the zip downloaded in step 1 and copy the contents inside your game directory.
6. Start the game and verify you have v1.04 in the left-top corner of the main menu. (the scenario setup screen should read in very small print 11th january below the title)
NOTE: That save games are fully compatible between all versions in circulation.
NOTE: Only the items below noted with (E) should kick in with older saved files, for the other fixes to kickin you'd need a fresh start.
Private DC:Barbarossa v1.04 (11th of Jan 2017 - scenario version 25)
-Added the option to view combat results textual instead of graphical (E)
-Fixed the hex graphic swamp - woods transitions
-A bug with the Free SetUp option that allows the German Player a lot more latitude than was intended is fixed.
-Corrected German spelling for all SS Officer Titles
-A few minor spelling corrections for Hugo's War Diary.
-A tool tip added to the Soviet Intel report to avoid confusion as to what it's referring to.
-Tambov and Stalingrad are no longer possible FSB locations which should resolve a couple of issues with AGS and relocating FSB's.
-A bug in the big ball of code that determines Victory conditions where, under certain circumstances, a German Decisive Victory is downgraded to a Draw, Advantage Germany. I suspect that this has been the underlying issue of a few previous forum posts that I attributed to a combination of easy game settings. Fixed.
-Fatigue. It turns out that, while fatigue is only accumulated while slow Divisions are set to a Blitzkrieg posture (correct), it also only applies while in the Blitzkrieg posture (incorrect). If you switch to Sustained Offensive or Defensive postures your slouching, weary, soldaten suddenly spark up and look a lot more alert than they should. Fixed.
We are looking forward to your feedback! even if it is just 'runs fine'
