We talked last night in our weekly call and we are getting closer to a release version and we need to finish closing down on a couple items. That may take a few days. I would hope we are able to get this over to Matrix on Monday of next week. If anything changes I'll let you all know.

Thanks for you patience.

While I want the patch 'right now', please don't rush it. I think you guys are onto something special and I would hate to see it ruined by a push to get changes, fixes, whatever they may be, out the door too quickly.

Will we be able to take advantage of the new elevations if we create maps?

I can hardly wait... the highlighted HQ and subordinates is a 'BIG' thing on my wish list.

Great stuff as usual... you do realize we may be getting spoiled.

Jack54, spoiled isn't a bad thing right?

There are a lot of changes and we are testing a number of things out. We should have a good idea after the development call tonight.

Reason, asking was, that Scott and I will start a PBEM and wasn't sure if when the patch comes out it will cause us to start over due to the patch

John, your call. If PBEM is stable for you guys, play. The update will change a number of things, for the better we hope, but it will probably not be compatible with 2.02 and the game play will be different.

Working on tracking the cause of a sudden bug where the AI can't bridge rivers. There is still some hope of getting things checked out and fixed and up to Matrix Friday, but odds are to Matrix Monday and then see it Tuesday/Wednesday next week.

Based on last nights talks we will be looking to go to Matrix with stuff after an okay in Monday's call. Takes them a day or so to spin an installer if there is nothing else in the pipeline. We will keep you all posted. I will try to get up more notes on changes and new gameplay items so you can get a feel for what is coming tonight.

Thanks for your patience.

We really hope we have knocked out the remaining PBEM bugs. A number of other items are easier to check, but localization related PBEM disconnects are a bear to track down and harder to trigger and trap.

Jack,

I wish we could slow down but we are already slipping off schedule on where we wanted to be with some other items. We know things like that will happen and we have had more weeks in 2.03 than anticipated, but we feel it will be a better game. Is everything fixed. No never will be with us. Hence we will jump into 2.04 and deal with the Sudden Death update and also work a number of Fog of War items noted by folks along with some AI work and other minor fixes. We see 2.05 as working on the UI and Info flow to improve things there based on suggestions and items internally we want to address. After that other than bug fixes we will shift focus to the 2.1 game engine and the major work needed there, the Red Storm Expansion, and the 2.1 new module.

No rest for the wicked or game designers.

I'd agree with that, as a group you have been incredibly active on the forum as well as pushing forward a game that was superb on day 1 release.

In my estimation puts you up there with the Phillipes for AGEOD ... can't think of any higher praise
