Is this any different from the patch that has been up for about a week?

No difference, there was just a slight delay in the official announcement above, and even though the patch was released earlier last week.

• Decreased land units’ Operational Costs from 15 to 10%; air units from 30 to 20%.

Regarding this change I see the land part in the editor where is the air part? Don't see it in movement costs? Not editable?

• Italian East Africa is now accessible to Italian units prior to Italy entering the war.

Also what was changed to make IEA early accessible? Just making sure I have it right in my mod.

Hi Tanaka

On 1), the operation of air units automatically costs double that of land units, so it's not editable but hard coded.

On 2) there was a change in the code and IIRC I also set IEA to be fully mobilized.

Hi: My auto update won't work. Can you send me a link where I can download the update and manually install?
Thanks

It's usually easier to update through Steam, because Steam does it automatically and you don't have to do anything.

The proviso is that the Steam version has to be as up-to-date as the Matrix version, but that's not usually an issue any more.

I tend to buy the Matrix/Slitherine version and get a Steam key, and then install the Steam version.

At the moment I actually have both versions installed because I'm working on a mod (if you know how to use it, Steam can take you directly to the game installation very quickly).

Thank you. I was unaware they were compatible. I have the Matrix version, though use Steam for some other games.

Just to be clear, they aren't fully compatible for modding purposes because one of the folders has a slightly different name (just slight enough to be easily overlooked). But other than that (and the different installation paths), the content is the same.

The 1.02 update was released in February. Is it possible that this thread is about the 1.03 update which is not yet available for download?

It is indeed possible. Even probable.
