I appreciate the comment, I'm not that bad! You'll have a leg up on me, for I have 2 matches (in the 90's) to finish in 1.60, so I won't be able to update soon. Hate to toss good MP matches just for an update, that is likely to be close to what I have now.

Keep a couple of challenges open for when I do update, we were having too much fun not to continue..

Fair enough, I am on steam so I have to update.
Bit of a flaw in the steam design being forced to update, fine for the massive online shot em up games.
But for other single player games and this game not so useful.

Um, if you update, you lose all your in-progress MultiPlayer games? Is that really true??

Gotta run home and turn off auto-update on Steam or I'm going to lose my game I've been playing for months :(

That's... terrible. I'll try to prevent steam from updating, but if it's too late, can I download the older version from Matrix/Slitherine? Because, otherwise, um, this is kind of unacceptable.

I was thinking about that too! Unfortunately I'm not that savvy on how to approach going back to an older version.

It could of meant : Go PC/downloads/1.60 beta then make an action selection, (which I do not want to touch right now, so as to not screw-up what I have).

On the header, you might want to say what the update is to: 1.62

Just a suggestion, Bob

Hello Kirk,

Personally, I found this situation a bit odd and PM'd upstairs my concern, no response. What I have noticed in this forum: "When you weigh in on a subject, members pay attention".

Hope that things work out, Miss your input, Bob

Can anyone at Slitherine/Matrix confirm or deny that all in-progress PBEM++ games have been destroyed by this update?

I'd like to know the answer to your question too! Try copy/paste your question to "Tech Support", Johnny Bravo is the best choice to answer it.

Hi guys

we let the developers know that no updates should break multiplayer games, so we will look in to what is going ASAP.

Kirk, who have you been contacting as we have had no mails and we certainly would never ignore a mail? We are in almost daily communication with the Lordz (Tim & Szymon) about everything that is going on for the project so we have been keeping the team completely up to date.

Daniele,

Good job! Noticed there has been about 100 new customers of the game in recent months, who may or may not know where to look for an ANNOUNCEMENT such as yours, certainly 1.62 would steer them in the right direction.

Thanks, Bob

Hi Iain, From mid November I left emails to Szymon,as he is my normal first point off contact, I know he is very busy, and I also knew he was working on Warhammer 40000 Armageddon, I also left a PM here on the forum for Szymon, with my new email address, and I have still to receive any responce.

Hi guys,

I'm going to talk to the Lordz and find out where the confusion comes from and get this all back on track. I know the guys have been busy and suspect its just a misunderstanding, but Szymon is not involved in Armageddon as its programmed by Flashback games.

Well I just checked Armageddons credits, and Szymon is listed as a Technical director?
