Matrix Games, Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) and Boku Strategy Games (www.bokustrategygames.com) are excited to release the comprehensive 1.04 update for Combat Command: The Matrix Edition. The update addresses withdraw issues, the infinite assault hex loop, and makes some welcome changes.

 

The full changelog for the 1.04 update is below:

 

Changes

  • When a unit loses its fortification levels, the reason is added to the message.
  • Can now select from a list in the Scenario Editor Graphics File of what comes with the game in addition to typing in your own.
  • Number of message retained has been increased to 500. Only 200 are saved in the save game though.
  • If you add WriteLog=1 to CombatComman.ini, all messages will be written to GameLog.txt as well.
  • This is technically a debugging tool and therefore never cleans itself out. Use at your own risk as all (verbose) messages are written.

 

Bug Fixes

  • Units withdrawing even if end up equidistant to the enemy.
  • Infinite Assault Hex Loop after Reload fixed, now displays "End Phase" button instead of "Next Assault Hex" button.
  • Units can no longer advance into a hex that would cause over-stacking to occur.
  • If a unit cannot full withdraw, it will now take a hit of damage. The announcement will reflect this.
  • Corrected display of Pilot Experience and Anti-Aircraft values in Scenario dialog.
  • Contact Modifier now displays correctly in game's Scenario dialog.

 

Get the update here.The update is comprehensive and will bring all previous versions of Combat Command: The Matrix Edition to 1.04. Get more information on Combat Command: The Matrix Edition from its official product pageat the Matrix Games site.

6 months after Pearl Harbour, the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere has reached its peak of expansion. Australia and New Zealand are under direct threat, weakening more and more the American ability to intervene in the Pacific.

Victory and Glory Card System!

Tuesday, February 02, 2016

To win a war, armies might be not enough. You need political skills as well, allowing you to change the balance of power in your favour, forge new alliances and isolate the enemy.

The endless conflict  between Napoleon and the several Coalitions formed against him was fought following exactly this simple rule. Great Britain didn’t have a ground army able to counter alone the capacity of the Revolutionary France and was forced to convince and support potential allies on the Continent.

On the other hand, Napoleon took many risks to manage fighting on multiple fronts at once, stretching his resources and wasting time and materials.
