Back to News Listing Tin Soldiers: Julius Caesar Updated to v1.11

Posted: Saturday, June 25, 2005 by Matrix Support

Type: Update

Crash Fix and Backwards Compatibility Upgrade

Matrix Games is pleased to announce that Koios Works’ (www.koiosworks.com) latest title in the Tin Soldiers series, Julius Caesar has been updated to version 1.11.

This incremental update fixes a crash bug involving retreating armies and makes the game backwards compatible with any minor revisions.  This means players with version 1.11 can play multiplayer against people who have version 1.10.  It does not include the ability for v1.11 players to play against v1.00 owners and requires that v1.10 already be installed before updating.  All Tin Soldiers: Julius Caesar updates can be downloaded from the Matrix Games website at www.matrixgames.com.

 

Tin Soldiers:  Julius Caesar brings a completely new 3D engine into the battle, allowing users to zoom in, out, and rotate the map for a better view of the battlefield.  The artwork overhaul features over 100 different replicas of hand-painted miniatures, including the fearsome legions of Caesar himself.  On the inside of the game the AI has been overhauled as well to support a variety of battle formations while the legions of Caesar have been expanded from the normal block of four units to a more powerful block of six.  This allows you to replicate the power and strength the Roman legions possessed.

 

The campaign mode features two distinct campaigns that no longer occur in linear order.  You must defeat the Gaelic campaign and the final showdown against the combined forces of Gaul at Alesia and then proceed to the Roman civil war, where you will conquer Rome itself.  By keeping many of the aspects that made Tin Soldiers:  Alexander the Great popular and improving it in many areas; Tin Soldiers:  Julius Caesar will be appealing to both existing fans and newcomers alike.

Star Hammer: the Vanguard Prophecy is out on XBox One!

Friday, August 26, 2016

The game has had a tremendous amount of good press when it released on PC and iOS last year, but it took quite a while to upgrade the graphics and adapt the UI to the console systems. The whole concept of brining a deep PC strategy game is not easy to translate into practice. Ease-of-use and accessibility are key to the console players to enjoy games, but we made it!

It’s a game of 3D tactical space battles where players take part in the Second Contact War in a campaign with a branching story and over 60 missions. The game also allows to create own scenarios in skirmish mode battles. Orders are given during pause times of a perfectly balanced WEGO system, then players watch the results unfold in intriguing pausable real-time. There’s a pretty extensive arsenal of crew abilities and assault class ships, making the game extremely varied.

Strategic Command Blog Post #2: 'Artificial Intelligence'

Thursday, August 11, 2016

In 2002, the original Strategic Command game was a relatively simple construct. With a limited rule set and a much smaller 62x37 map of approximately 2300 hexes, the requirements for the AI were not necessarily trivial, but in general terms, they were straightforward.

Fast forward to today, and Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe has been expanded into a modifiable hexagonal game engine allowing map sizes of up to 512x512 or 262,144 hexes!
