I'm way behind on giving update status, but we have been working on it. It's just that the items we're working on now are a bit more involved. But I think we just wrapped up another item and if the tests turn out ok, I'll update later this week.

Thanks and sorry for the delay
Rick

I know that this game isn't a priority but thank you for your diligence in continuing to work on it when you can.

I've updated the status of work items 16, 21, and 23 in the first post. Item 16 included some other adjustments that affect sighting against a target that is currently being fired on. A sighting factor penalty is applied if a unit is firing it's main weapon. We have adjusted this so that this firing sighting penalty doesn't affect sighting of the enemy unit that was the target of the fire.

We've also increased significantly the sighting of destroyed vehicles so that in more (most) cases these destroyed units will be visible to selected units.

I'll keep posted as we finish the items on the list.

Thanks
Rick

Thanks a lot for your work Rick . PCO is a great game and fixing bugs is the best choice to make it even greater.

Thanks for the encouragement. There are several of us working on it. Mobius has been working on improving several of the models and data for some of the armoured units. Qwixt and mgarnett are also starting to work on some of the work items in the patch list.

It's a side endeavor for all of us, but we work on it when we can.

Thanks
Rick

One thing that is does now is place a dust cloud where a shell hits an intervening ground feature that protects a hulldown target. The dust cloud at the right is because something fired at the tank at the far right but hit the ground instead. The ground doesn't have to be right next to the tank to provide hulldown protection as can be seen.

I don't have any progress to report this week. I was out of town a good part of last week. We are also down to some challenging patch items. I've started looking at the Scenario editor item, but I can see that i need to do some refresher on html, xml, and javascript to make progress on these items.

But I will keep you posted.

Thanks
Rick

No material progress this past week. I did end up ordering a reference manual on Javascript to help me get up to speed on that technology. But it will take a bit of time. Thanks, and I apologize for the delay.

Thanks

Not a bug but a small feature. Export the result of a battle in an xml file. The save structure could be good.
I have an operational game in progress which can create dynamically scenarios. My concern is to get the result after the fight.
I am sure you can do it in a minute maybe two.

Duncan,

I think I actually have a note about adding that feature. But I don't expect to see it in this patch, sorry.

Thanks

Switching to work on the .hta's has slowed progress on the patch. I'll try to see if I can squeeze out some additional time to devote to this.

I've updated the status of the patch list. Item 22, to modify the Scenario Editor has been finished. I started to work on item 9, the MapMaker item, and identified two more issues that need to be addressed in the patch. Hopefully neither of them will not be too difficult to sort out.

So this time it really is one step forward and two steps back.

Thanks
Rick

... is there a download somewhere?

Or is the last patch from over 2 years ago? A partial patch with just some of the fixes would be amazing, unless I'm being dumb and just havn't located the link

As budd mentioned, (Panzer Command: Ostfront v2.0.329f Update from about 2 yrs ago) is the last patch, but we are working on another. The patch items we're working on for this next patch are in the first post.

Thanks
Rick

Can I waffle on this response? The team has has discussed the possibility of working on an expansion module, but I've been rather persistent in wanting to release this patch before we start working on an expansion. That's not to say nothing has been worked on, but no decisions or commitments have been made.

I really want to keep my focus on this patch. I had really hoped to have it finished by now, but that hasn't worked out. On a positive note, the last two items added to list are close to being resolved.

Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!

That is great news - both about the patch and a possible expansion module

I won't hold you to this, but any rough ETA on the patch.......and after that would it be legal for you to discuss this expansion thingy.

I wish I could help, but I don't really have an ETA. We are making progress, but we still have more to do and I just can't give an good estimate (or even a bad estimate) of how soon it will get done. And after the teams work is done, it still needs to go through the Matrix cycle and this is a very busy time for them.

As far as discussing the expansion thingy - there really isn't much to discuss at this point. Once the patch is finished, maybe we can discuss more.

Thanks!
