Marshall Ellis -> 1.05 Update (11/19/2008 1:22:57 PM)

Hey guys:

Just an FYI that I will attempt to get a BETA 1.05 ready next week (Not sure of Matrix's holiday schedule yet). I am trying to speed this up a bit so I am pulling the editor and the 1812 scenario out and pushing them to 1.06. If you check the changelog in Mantis then you will notice a ton of changes in 1.05 so I would like for those to get you a little quicker.

BTW: This will have turn skipping!









GShock -> RE: 1.05 Update (11/19/2008 1:36:51 PM)

Congrats Ellis. I don't know if u were aware of all the trouble coming from this title's release when u got yourself into it.
I do see you're breaking your back on it. I am still at the first patch and observing the forums so that when they all say all has been sorted out, I'll finally start to enjoy it.

Your commitment is encomiable, upward and onward!




DCWhitworth -> RE: 1.05 Update (11/19/2008 1:46:27 PM)

Seconded, except I don't know what ecomiable means [:)]

It must be something like when Peter Jackson turned Lord of the Rings into a film. Most people think its fantastic but there are a few fanatics who will never be satisfied.




Marshall Ellis -> RE: 1.05 Update (11/19/2008 1:54:01 PM)

Oddly enough, the more I add, the more I want to add LOL! It's like a drug to me! I cannot stop! As long as I'm not in a straight jacket, I will be coding this thing!

Mmmm, perhaps you should try drinking decaff for a while [;)]




Marshall Ellis -> RE: 1.05 Update (11/19/2008 5:01:06 PM)

decaff? That's like water in the gas tank! LOL!





GShock -> RE: 1.05 Update (11/20/2008 2:29:27 PM)

Problem of all strategy games is that the more complex they are the more inhumane the task becomes at building their numerous features. Considering everything can go wrong (according to Murphy's law) in any single line of the code, and adding that there's the AI involved, which is definitely always an issue for any coder, I'd say that with his bare hands, Ellis surely hasn't build a flawless product but has still done a great job.

I personally think the best could be achieved in much shorter time if the community volounteered coders and playtesters to build those video tutorials, improve the interface and tooltips, and of course, building a manual worth of the lamest noob (like me) to study learn and play.

Encomiable is the effort, always. I never asked for a refund for this game and i never will. Should I never even play it once, it's my way of showing respect to someone else's skill and commitment and trust what he's doing is the right thing. Keep up.




Marshall Ellis -> RE: 1.05 Update (11/20/2008 2:38:35 PM)

I appreciate the support Gshock! I'm certainly not perfect but I will not go away!
"Here I stand! ... like a Stone Wall" ... ;-)







Mardonius -> RE: 1.05 Update (11/20/2008 2:42:49 PM)

I don't know if you want to be too closely associated with that stone wall quote... both the sayer and the object were KIAs in the next couple of years. [8D]

Do you mind posting a list of intended version 1.05 fixes? I know this will be a big fix list...



Thanks for all your hard work!

A lot of blood, sweat and keys :-)





adamcs -> RE: 1.05 Update (11/26/2008 3:03:39 PM)

Hi all,

I've just bought this game today (26-11-2008) and would like to know if the downloadable version has all the previous patches included. If not please tell me which patch should I download.

Thank you folks,

Adam




pzgndr -> RE: 1.05 Update (11/26/2008 6:44:33 PM)

Welcome!  I would assume the digital downlaod already has the latest v1.04.07 update.  Else go to the downloads page and get the patch.

I hope you read the forums thoroughly so that you know what you are getting yourself into.

I would not assume that the digital download version is fully-patched. That's a non-trivial exercise, and the game has spent most of its patching resources fixing bugs. It's possible, but I would wait for Matrix to say that before assuming it.




Marshall Ellis -> RE: 1.05 Update (12/1/2008 12:31:55 PM)

Just do simple version check at the bottom right of the title screen.
1.04 should be your current version. If not then download the 1.04 patch and you will be OK.




Marshall Ellis -> RE: 1.05 Update (12/1/2008 12:32:26 PM)

BTW: I am testing the first 1.05 BETA install this morning...

My gawd! All these bugs have been in this game since release? Is this typical in the initial release of a game like this? Hats off to Marshall for "eating the elephant"...I would have choked long ago...





Marshall Ellis -> RE: 1.05 Update (12/2/2008 2:03:18 PM)

Note: Not all were bugs. Two were enhancements. LOL ;-)
No, this is not normal but this game was anything but normal LOL!






Marshall Ellis -> RE: 1.05 Update (12/3/2008 1:30:22 PM)

FYI guys that we have give the all-systems-go for the first 1.05 BETA posting so you should see it in the next day or so.





Mardonius -> RE: 1.05 Update (12/3/2008 1:46:39 PM)

Great news Marshall. Keep up the good work!




iamspamus -> RE: 1.05 Update (12/9/2008 11:18:42 AM)

Yep, thanks.




Marshall Ellis -> RE: 1.05 Update (12/9/2008 1:00:11 PM)
