Joel Billings -> (Test Hotfix Included) More info needed on MP issues with 1.01.03 (or .02) (8/16/2021 3:00:19 PM)

We had several reports of problems with players not able to proceed with their existing MP games using 1.01.03 (and one that said he couldn't with 1.01.02). Pavel has returned and he can't duplicate the issue and says that the change in 1.01.03 was so minor that it should not have caused a new issue. In the meantime, I was able to start an MP game with a version later than 1.01.03 (very similar to .03).

Has anyone been able to continue an MP game with 1.01.03, or start a new MP game?

Has anyone been able to continue an MP game with 1.01.02, or start a new MP game?

Since Pavel can't duplicate the issue, we need to get more information on what's causing the problem for some users and also find out if anyone is successfully continuing their games with these latest public beta versions.

If you have a game that you cannot continue, please post here the names of the players, what turn you are on, and the name of the scenario.

Without more information we are stuck, and Pavel is only in town for 1 day before he will be unavailable for the rest of the week, so getting some info ASAP would be very helpful. Thanks.

Hi, I am in 4 1.102 games under the username msf567, two road to leningrads, and two GC's. Off the top of my head, one the opponents for the GCs are AtAttack, and one of the RtL is gundam1985

All four of these games were started with 1.02 beta and cannot continue with 1.03




msf567 -> RE: More info needed on MP issues with 1.01.03 (or .02) (8/16/2021 3:15:39 PM)

I cant post more info because I am currently at work and dont have the game installed hehe




Joel Billings -> RE: More info needed on MP issues with 1.01.03 (or .02) (8/16/2021 4:36:39 PM)

What exactly is going on when you can't access? Are you able to see the games in the lobby, but can't click on them? We're interested in the games that are not finished.




AlbertN -> RE: More info needed on MP issues with 1.01.03 (or .02) (8/16/2021 4:55:42 PM)

When I installed the .03 I could not continue any .02 game.

I've not tried to start new games under .03.

Reinstalling .02 over the .03 allowed me to continue my games.

When I had .03 the game was working smoothly (as per launching and getting to the main menu and to the multiplayer server lobby), where I was seeing the list of my games and eventual new challenges open (none at that stage).
When I tried to click on a MP Game where I was the Active player - the selection simply never happened, and thus I could not access my turns.




msf567 -> RE: More info needed on MP issues with 1.01.03 (or .02) (8/16/2021 4:55:52 PM)

I can see them, but clicking on them does nothing.

You could replicate this by starting an MP game in 1.102 and then upgrading to 03 and trying to continue the game

Here Joel. Maybe this helps.

I know this is a big ask, but if any of you with this problem would be willing to share your log in information with us, it would help us as we might be able to duplicate the problem. Unfortunately we only have Pavel for a few more hours today, so we would need the info quickly or it will have to wait until next week. Please email me at 2by3@2by3games.com if you are willing to share your username and password. We promise not to give it out to anyone but myself and Pavel. We fully understand if you're not willing to do this (although you probably could change your password after we are done with it if you want to block us out down the road. Matrix does not have access to anyone's passwords, so there is no way we can get this info from Matrix.

We will look into the option of backing out the one MP change made to 1.01.03 and creating a test version. If we can do this, is there anyone able to test this exe out in the next few hours if we create one? If so, please email me at 2by3@2by3games.com and let me know. Pavel doesn't see how this change could cause a problem, and it's possible this has to do with other GUI changes, but we're just guessing at the moment.

Thanks, we're working the problem. Just emailed you for more info.




Joel Billings -> RE: More info needed on MP issues with 1.01.03 (or .02) (8/16/2021 6:25:54 PM)

I've attached a debug exe 1.01.06 for players that are having issues with MP in 1.01.03. Please download this and unzip this into your main game directory (Gary Grigsby's War in the East2 directory). Best to make a copy of your current exe before you add this in so you can go back to the old exe. Ideally you should have 1.01.03 installed, although you can probably just try this with just 1.01.02 installed as well. The key is when you run this exe and go to the MP lobby, we need you to click on one of your games. Then look and see if the ID number listed next to the game is also the ID that appears at the top of the screen for the game you have clicked on. Please click on an active game and then take a screenshot of the full game screen so we can see everything there. We could use feedback ASAP as we only have a few hours today or this will have to wait until next week. Thanks.

BTW, let us know if you are able to get into the game (at which point you can just save off or exit the game - either should be ok for letting you continue in the future).

works! emailed the pics




Joel Billings -> RE: More info needed on MP issues with 1.01.03 (or .02) (8/16/2021 7:47:00 PM)

I've attached here a test hotfix for the MP issue that was in 1.01.03. We had success with msf567 with a version we sent him like this with MP working, and we need to confirm that this works to let players into their MP games. There are more changes which I will detail once we see if it's working.

You need to unzip the exe file into your main game directory (Gary Grigsby's War in the East 2). You should probably save a copy of your current exe somewhere else in case you want to go back. This is version 1.01.7. You should have 1.01.03 installed, although you could try this for an existing game with 1.01.02 as the data file changes in .03 won't matter for an existing game. We just need to have players let us know if they can get into their MP games. Please let us know. Thanks to msf567 for his fast response and help today, and all others that provided info.




msf567 -> RE: More info needed on MP issues with 1.01.03 (or .02) (8/16/2021 7:50:52 PM)

Confirmed works!

Thanks Joel and Pavel!

Lightning devs




Joel Billings -> RE: More info needed on MP issues with 1.01.03 (or .02) (8/16/2021 8:14:51 PM)

Ok, it would be useful to see if others can confirm this. Here's the full change list for 1.01.07 (changes since 1.01.03):

New Features and Rule Changes
• Changed rules for isolated support/multi-role units inside HQs when the HQ displaces (either through relocate order or forced displacement). Now those units will be destroyed when the HQ displaces. As with surrenders, some small amount of men and equipment can escape to the pool.
• Reduced the number of fighters that are assigned by default to air transport missions.
• Reduced by 50% the chance of pilots being killed when an operational loss is recorded.


Bug Fixes and AI Improvements
• Can’t access MP games using 1.01.03 version. Fixed.
• Multi-role units can't convert back to be on map units (no 'Convert' showing in their unit detail screen). Fixed.
• CR screen - Location/Storage tab SU column always shows 0. Fixed.
• Export ports not receiving freight. Fixed.
• Units are sometimes surrendering when they should be routing instead. Fixed. Note: You may have to go through a logistics phase for the bug to be fixed in existing games as a unit’s data may already be corrupted in a way that would force it to surrender instead of routing.
• Partisans are operating less effectively than they should in non-campaign scenarios, especially in low partisan areas. Fixed.
• Corrected spelling of High (Hight) Water Mark in Multiplayer screen.
• AI assist naval ops setting bad stage base and not including nav patrol aircraft from Romanian Air Command. Improved.
• AI – Improved Axis AI line forming just north of the Sea of Azov in 1943.
• AI – Improved Axis pull back in Baltic States.

The fix works for me as well.




Rosencrantus -> RE: More info needed on MP issues with 1.01.03 (or .02) (8/17/2021 12:29:42 AM)

Works for me too after I reinstalled 1.01.03.




Joel Billings -> RE: More info needed on MP issues with 1.01.03 (or .02) (8/17/2021 6:04:24 AM)

Sounds good. It seems 1.01.03 was a bad build and/or me sending out the wrong file that was missing the latest MP engine code. 1.01.07 set that right, and made some other good changes. Unless we hear of a problem, we're going to submit it to Matrix tomorrow to be put into a new installer. For those looking to get a head start, you can use the 1.01.07 attached above.
