If youve bought the CD version not the download version then you need to download the patches. One is very big so I'd do it now.



New scenarios here.

Did you just purchase it from our online store? If so, it's already updated. If not, then you can download the updates by clicking on GAMES above, then on Latest Downloads in the top left or navigating to the Highway to the Reich Games page and clicking on Downloads there.

Regards,

When I bought a boxed copy from Matrix it came with a manual. Does HTTR boxed version still have a manual?

If so how come it used to have one and now all your games since dont?

This is a major hassle with Matrix games. You know I love you really but its something that needs to be sorted. These games arent like FPS games where a manual isnt really needed. Its so important in games like these.

I got the game to install, it wasn`t a proper CD but a copy, so there was no install by putting in player , just a set up, which disapointed me as i asked for boxed CD and manual, well then game kept crashing when matrix stuff was coming on , like uncommon valour and spwaw do`s, ive been lucky with them two, so i terminte the prog of matrix with nortons crash gaurd, and underneath is hwttreich, ready to play , played it and after cple mins it crashed to desk top, but if i launch from folder where game is installed then terminate matrix`s stuff ,it go`s ok no CTD, so the trouble is matrix video`s etc, like in other games , is there a way round this? i have latest version 2.2.86 i think it said , 86 on end anyway, ive sent DX Diag to support but havent had a reply yet ,so i wont put it on here unless you need it,

macnab,

We have not yet received your DX report. Please check and resend if you didn't send it to support[at]panthergames[dot]com. SOunds like you're running into problem playing the avi files ( ie the movie files for Matric PG and HTTR ) Go into the Game directory and try double-clicking these avi files directly and see if they play in MSMediaPlayer.

All is well now everything resolved, i renamed the four or five video intro files, fired up game from folder , no crash intercept, played game no CTD, then started game from programs, same results, then from shortcut, same crash`s, deleted shortcut, and dragged another out and all went well, it was a good game before ,now its brilliant, thank`s for your help, dont make the specys for new one any bigger please, so people know i run this with 500mghz, no prob, i would suggest that a lot of trouble experianced in the matrix games uncommon valour spwaw, etc ,are them vidoe files, on some game `s of your`s i have been lucky, but at least it can be resolved, thank`s again happy now
