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.

Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager gets release date.

"But why, some say, the Moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask, why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? " - US President John F. Kennedy ; 1962.

On July 20th 1969, the Apollo 11 mission successfully landed. For the first time in history, human beings walked on the Moon. The conquest of space that had started a few years after the end of WWII reached its climax with a manned lunar landing. In competition with the USSR, the US gained a decisive advantage when images of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and their lunar exploration module were broadcast on live TV all over the world from the Sea of Tranquillity. President Kennedy won his historic gamble by landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth before the end of the decade. A whole new era of space conquests was opened…
