New features, BattleSets, and more hit the high seas in this latest update

Matrix Games and Advanced Gaming Systems (www.advancedgaming.biz) are proud to announce the release of the comprehensive 2008.044 update for Harpoon – Commander’s Edition. The update includes some new functionality for Battleset Builders so databases can be embedded in user BattleSets.  In addition, there are tons of updated air and sea units, nearly twenty fixes to reported issues, sound and graphic files have been reconfigured to allow for easy modding, and shell Caribbean, South Atlantic, South African, and Middle Eastern BattleSet have been included so a wide variety of new scenarios can be crafted with these new units over the next few releases!

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “We’re always happy to work with the Harpoon team to continue to improve and expand this classic title.  The people involved in making Harpoon – Commander’s Edition all that it can be are truly dedicated to this great gaming system and this update is another step forward for all Harpoon fans.”

 

Larry Bond’s Harpoon – Commander’s Edition is the latest addition to the longstanding naval warfare simulation series that has earned awards and accolades from naval strategy fans and military personnel alike. Like its predecessors, Harpoon – Commander’s Edition allows players to assume the role of a fleet commander, making the same type of decisions he has to make, using the same type and quality of information he might expect to get in wartime. This is naval warfare strategy and simulation at its very best – addicting and wholly realistic!

 

As players take to the seas and command a huge variety of ships in an equally as varied choice of theaters and historical conflicts, naval simulation realists and strategy fans alike will revel in the depth and richness of Larry Bond's Harpoon – Commander’s Edition. Experience realistic gameplay with all new features, art, and more! Choosing from an accurate and editable database of platforms, weapons, and sensors, players can fight one of 269 provided scenarios covering the height of the Cold War to Pirates in Malaysia, or use the provided editors to create their own.

 

This update is comprehensive and will bring the game up to version 2008.044.

Field of Glory 2 Developers Diary - A.I.

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

The AI for Field of Glory II has been developed by building on the knowledge gained from developing the generally praised AI for Pike and Shot and Sengoku Jidai.
 
Deployment
For non-preset scenarios, it is important that the AI can deploy its army in a sensible formation, taking account of the prevailing terrain.
Generally speaking, most ancient armies would deploy with an infantry centre in one or more lines. (Usually three for Romans, usually only one for Hellenistic armies). They would then have cavalry on both wings and perhaps in reserve, plus light troops both in the centre and on the wings.

Gettysburg: The Tide Turns is out!

Thursday, July 13, 2017

The Battle of Gettysburg, fought between the Army of the Potomac and the Army of Northern Virginia, is considered by many the turning point of the American Civil War.

Lasted three days, from July 1st to July 3rd, 1863, the battle saw many epic and tragic moments, culminating in the famous Pickett's Charge, the desperate frontal assault of the confederates against the unionist defensive lines at Cemetery Ridge.

Today, Shenandoah and Slitherine are very proud to release Gettysburg: The Tide Turns, the brilliant hex-based wargame that will make you relive all the hard tactical choices the Confederates and the Unionists had to take during these long and crucial days of fierce fighting.
