Back to News Listing Gary Grigsby's War in the East Gets an Update!

Posted: Wednesday, April 18, 2012 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

 

Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com), Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) and 2by3 Games (www.2by3games.com) are proud to release the comprehensive 1.06.06 update for the critically-acclaimed World War II mega-strategy game Gary Grigsby’s War in the East.

 

The update brings with it a small batch of fixes to the AI and some data and scenario changes to continue to make War in the East one of the most engaging strategy games out there on the market. An updated English manual in the patch also includes all the rule changes since release.

The patch also includes 1.06.05 changes to the Don to the Danube expansion scenarios. This latest patch will have to be run again if Don to the Danube is added at a later time.

The full change list for the patch includes:

 

Bug Fixes

  • Made a change to the AI that eliminates some AI cheat moves out of positions in partial pockets that they should not be able to move out of. We still think there may be other unintended cheat moves remaining. If you see a situation that looks suspect and can provide a save just before the illegal move so we can repeat the move, please send it to 2by3@2by3games.com. We would like to eliminate all of these cheat moves but there are many different AI functions so this can only be done via saves. The fix just made was possible because we had a player save that allowed us to repeat the problem.

Data and Scenario Changes

Changes in Device, OB and Leader files

  • The 42 Separate Tank Battalion (OB 241) now upgrades to the 43 Separate Tank Regiment (OB 243); a new 43 Separate Tank Battalion (OB 270) has been added for use by scenario designers. Note that the 42 Separate Tank Battalion upgrade skips over the 42 Separate Tank Regiment (OB 242) allowing separate tank battalions and tank regiments to both exist in late 1942.
  • Revised the penetration of the American 75mm & 76mm guns (Devices 362, 363, 364 & 607). Increased the rate of fire of the following devices: 358, 362, 363, 364, 365, & 377.
  • Corrected the name of von Both (194) from Hans-Kuno von Both to Kuno-Hans von Both.

Command LIVE Spratly Spat is out!

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

The dispute over the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea has reached a turning point.

China has never hidden her intent to extend her power in the region, both diplomatically and militarily. And the nearby countries have always tried to do the same, in temporary coalitions or alone. The United States, despite their interest in countering the Chinese’s ambitions, have been involved too much in the Middle East to be able to have a strong presence in these waters.
