Back to News Listing Matrix Games Releases Campaigns on the Danube v2.1 Patch

Posted: Friday, April 30, 2004 by Shaun Wallace

Type: Update

Matrix Games and Adanac Command Studies (www.adanaccommandstudies.com) are pleased to announce the release of the first post-release patch, version 2.1 for the Army-Level Napoleonic Wargame, Campaigns on the Danube 1805 & 1809. Campaigns on the Danube 1805 & 1809 is the first game released under Matrix Games Digital Express game line. Years in the making by Designer and Developer Frank Hunter, Campaigns on the Danube is a unique simulation of Napoleonic-era command.

The first update focuses on bugs reported by customers since the initial release. The list of fixes includes Army Commander attachments, Some rare text overlaps and blank combat screens, PBEM issues and map display issues. With this patch, virtually all reported bugs have been addressed and the play experience should be improved. As with all Matrix Games titles, support will continue based on customer feedback.

In Campaigns on the Danube, players command historic, powerful armies as they face off against each other in a clash that would be destined to defeat Austria but prove for a brief time that Napoleon could indeed be stopped. Players will be able to take command of the French forces under Napoleon or Austrians under Charles and strike at each other over a large hex-based map. Cavalry, infantry, artillery, engineers, leaders, supply wagons, depots, and other counters may be maneuvered for maximum military effect, while the flexible combat system may be used either through the game system itself or through miniatures play.

For any connoisseur of Napoleonic gaming, Campaigns on the Danube 1805 & 1809 is a fascinating and fast-paced game that is bound to provide countless hours of surprises and conquest.

Game Features:

  • Map covers central Europe from Ulm in the west to Olmutz in the northeast
  • Maneuver elements consist of divisions and brigades
  • Realistic command delays, orders send to subordinates may be lost
  • Realistic army supply rules
  • AI can play either side (French or Austrians)
  • PBEM capability
  • Ability to fight battles using miniatures
  • Seven scenarios covering 1805 and 1809

    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!
