Marshall Ellis -> 1.06.03 (7/22/2009 11:32:56 PM)

Hey guys:

I received a save game this morning from a tester that was a great save of the French I Corps disappearing problem in PBEM games. This was also corrupting other units as well and was propogating to the whole game as the PBEM files were being passed. I'm telling you this because I worked on this issue most of the day and got it fixed and would like to insert this into the 1.06 patch. I have created a new 1.06.03 image that is being uploaded but I wanted you all to know this becuase it may delay the general release of 1.06 BUT it will allow be to include "the 1st Corps fix" a lot sooner than 1.07! To summarize, I'm gonna delay 1.06 general release by a few days and insert one more BETA release! The 1st corps problem has been the toughest PBEM problem so far!

Thanks for all of the support guys!

How are we doing with the 1.06.03 release?

Marshall Ellis -> RE: 1.06.03 (7/29/2009 12:43:59 PM)

We are testing the Matrix install!

Marshall Ellis -> RE: 1.06.03 (7/29/2009 4:50:51 PM)

Hey guys:

We have tested the install image for 1.06.03 and it is a go!
It should be posted very soon to the public BETA!

BTW: I have coded a scenario recovery piece in this version that should make upgrading a little cleaner for your user-created scenarios!

Appreciate your patience!

Might help or not, but im playing in 1.05.05 with Windows 7 RC and it works just fine as in Vista, perhaps better.

larrywrose -> RE: 1.06.03 (8/10/2009 7:40:19 PM)

Any idea when this will become an offical release? One of the issue's of being in multiple games with players who are in multiple games is we tend to wait for the official release. Right now a few of the 1.05.05 bugs are starting to cause serious problems and I am hoping 1.06.03 will resolve some of them.

We are VERY close. Matrix and I are trying to build and test the general image release today! I will want to run a few install test and play it a bit to confirm versioning but this should be a few days only. I anticipate handing the OK to Matrix this week! I'm not sure of their release scheduling but usually they are only a few days behind me!

Dancing Bear -> RE: 1.06.03 (8/11/2009 1:57:17 AM)

That's excellent news. I'm sure there are more than a few of us out there who are waiting for 1.06 before starting a new game. Hopefully, 1.07 with is long list of fixes won't be far behind. Are there any changes in the most recent 1.06 from the BETA?

Marshall Ellis -> RE: 1.06.03 (8/11/2009 3:03:03 AM)

Not really. 1.06.03 really fixed up the PBEM transger problems that were forcing the Fr 1st corps and other units to disappear! Also we fixes the repatriation issues where neutrals were repatriating after a battle that they were not a part of.

gazfun -> RE: 1.06.03 (8/11/2009 9:51:33 AM)

I know there will be combatability issues with this new patch 1.06 coming in, is there something in place to indicated to a player if they have an old version, and is not compatible etc with the new version being run by the Host.
Or in other words something to indicate a differance to a Host that a player is running an old version

Marshall Ellis -> RE: 1.06.03 (8/11/2009 1:21:16 PM)

Good point Gaz!

We do not have this check in this version. The only compatibility issues are that 1.06.03 people will definitely have an advantage simply with the better build BUT unit corruption issues we saw in 1.05 could still happen in a 1.05 client then propogate to the 1.06.03 client so I'm asking that all PBEM hosts make sure that all clients upgrade to the 1.06.03. I intend to put some type of message on the version a turn file came from in a later version to help regulate this a bit more.

gazfun -> RE: 1.06.03 (8/19/2009 10:26:57 PM)

That would be a big help for hosts, and for uniformity
