SAVED GAMES - please note that unfortunately saved games from the release version (v1.00) are not compatible with v1.01. We're sorry for the inconvenience this will cause but the change was required for future updates.


I'm afraid that it does not include PBEM which is not quite ready but we didn't want to delay the many improvements and fixes that Hubert and Bill have made any longer. The full change list is below
You will note that several of the changes made have been as a result of your suggestions so please do keep them coming (as of course further updates are planned)

Rest assured that we are continuing on PBEM as our top priority and its now in internal testing and we are already discussing what to include in the next update

Thank you for your continued support

Regards
Ben Wilkins



v1.01 CHANGE LIST
- fixed a black band display error for very wide screen display setups when viewing the world map in game.
- fixed AI retreat logic for air units when set to GUARD and HOLD in position.
- fixed an AI friendly major controlled units error that had the AI moving units not under its control on your turn.
- fixed a Reports and War Map resource listing that was incorrect as it was not including Major Cities and Major Capitals in the totals.
- fixed a password storage and retrieval error that was causing some issues with Hotseat games when using the 'password' option.
- fixed a rare disappearing Capitals error.
- fixed a Primary and Secondary supply issue for situations such as when Italy is surrendered and then subsequently liberated. An occupier would gain the Primary and Secondary supply centers of Italy once Italy had surrendered, but it would then subsequently automatically lose them once Italy is liberated. This is no longer the case and an occupier would have to physically lose those locations after an Italian liberation to permanently lose them as supply locations.
- fixed several 'on_left_button_down' errors related to unit selection and movement.
- fixed an 'animate_sea_transport' error.
- fixed an ESC key error that would cause some sub windows to CTD.
- fixed a returning capital error where the re-captured capital had a low supply causing a drop in strength in connected resource calculations.
- fixed a UNIT script error that was not having some unit events trigger when the AI was controlling friendly majors on your turn.
- fixed a dissapearing unit bug when swapping units.
- UNIT script header notes expanded to explain the use of #LEVEL= -1 for when setting specific scripts for AI controlled friendly majors on your turn.
- any unit that is using Cruise mode will no longer find or be stopped by a Sub in Silent mode, including Destroyers.
- subs that are completely surrounded now have a chance to dive and retreat but in this case may still end their dive next to an enemy unit if no other escape option is possible for it.
- ANNEXATION events now transform the former Capitals, Primary Supply Centers and Industrial Centers to Secondary Supply Centers only.

CAMPAIGNS (AI)
- fixed a UK build up of units in Canada error that did not see them transported back to the UK home island after a capital move to Toronto, and when the UK home island had been subsequently liberated.

CAMPAIGNS
- Reduced experience gains from Convoy Raiding by air units and surface vessels from 0.2 to 0.1 per raid.
- Increased experience gains for all land units from all infantry (Garrison -> Pill Box/Shock Army; Reconnaissance -> Heavy Tanks), all air units, and for all naval units (Dreadnoughts -> Motor Torpedo Boat) for an Attack (Defending Unit) and Attack Victory (Defender Destroyed) from 0.1 to 0.15.

- Advanced Aircraft research limited to 1 chit (ILCK).
- Removed the mention of Finland joining the Axis when Germany declares war on the USSR from the German advice pop ups (ILCK; Scook_99).
- Italy’s starting National Morale has been increased by 10,000 so that a capture of Rome will generally be necessary to make the country surrender.

- Increased the cost of DE 204 to send the Anglo-French Expedition to Finland from 100 to 150 MPPs, split equally between the UK and France, and if the Anglo-French Expedition is successful then it will now swing the USSR 8-12% towards the Axis (previously this was 4-6%).

- The presence of an Allied unit in Rhodes will now swing Turkey by 15-25% towards the Allies (sPzAbt653).

Wonderful news!

I have a question regarding: "Vichy France will now deploy its navy if it joins the Axis or Allies for the 1939 to 1942 campaigns (Mountaineer).".

Will the Allies be able to attack the Vichy fleet (as occurred historically) without having to declare war on Vichy France, which I assume, would have it join the Axis?

Thanks,

C

Hi,

Quick question: the change list doesn't mention any changes to the UI, were the missing UI elements that are already in the manual added to the game finally?

Is this patch compatible with 1.01 beta saves?

I have a pretty good game going, and it would be nice to be able to swap units again.

Yes, those Decision Events are still in place.

What wasn't covered before was what would happen to the remaining Vichy fleet in certain circumstances.

I'll try it out, but can only say that in my own games to date Italy wasn't surrendering prematurely. It threw in the towel like clockwork once I kicked them out of NA, Sicily, and took Naples.

With the new system in place, I don't expect that to happen anymore. And if it turns out that I have to do more than this, then I won't.

Well, I have other games to play, so it's not a huge problem for me but it's a bit disappointing nevertheless. While I bought the game upon release I have not really played it due to parts missing that were even explained in the manual. So this stays off my HD until it's done/ready, I guess

Apologies if I've missed it but has the problem with the Germans moving and reinforcing in the same turn in Narvik been fixed?

The only way I could get it to download is to use Edge. I think IE might work too. Seems like any other browser has issues.

It's from the game the button that says - Check for Update, it should update the game just like it does for all the Matrix games and is supposed to in this game - which I guess is why it is there.

If this was when the AI moved and reinforced this should now be fixed as well with the latest v1.01 update.
