Where can I install it on? I have also the patch 7 beta version 1123x10 of August 2014.I prefer playing it rather than the official version. Can I install on this?

He made a couple of posts in the WitW Tech forum lately. This is just the BETA made official right?

A quick scan of the changes documented in whatsnew.pdf seems to correlate to post #2 in beta thread and the pdf in beta download.
The update does not contain the updated scenario and AI files (patch 07 beta by Andy Mac).

DON'T DO IT!

Copy the entire contents of your latest beta to a different folder then download it there. If your game is in there, attempt it, but don't lose the original beta and save games.

I think it will probably be pretty similar to the process of upgrading to a new beta while playing, especially if you are already running one of the more recent betas.

Am playing a PBEM game under the official version.

I finished my last turn under the "old" version ("old" as in official version before today's update).
My opponent installed the new update, then opened the email turn I sent him. So far, I am told" the updates are in and running fine under for him under the new version.

I am waiting for him to finish his turn and send it back to me.

+1. Better safe than sorry. I have a seperate AE install that is up to date with the last beta. I'm going to download and check it out....GP

Got my return turn back.

Largest "inconvenience" noticed by me and my opponent was that some carrier squadrons resized (both IJN and USN).
Our game had just gone from June 30 to July 1.
Could it have been because that was a resize date anyway?
Maybe for one of us but probably not both IJN and the USN.

I downloaded it from the "Check for Updates" click thing on the popup at start.

The download ran fine and the install worked.

Official patch is later date (Dec 25 2014) and is also later version (11.24 instead of 11.23x10). Since it's comprehensive, it should have all Beta changes incorporated. So use the latest and greatest.

If you are referring to '42, then I believe that is the date that US CV fighter squadrons resize from 27 to 36.

I am Chi's opponent, had all my IJN CV's marked as do not resize, well they resized anyway on patch application. Now I gotta cherry pick my land based fighter units for pilots for CV duty. I got a bunch of pilots with 55-60 overall and 70 air skill and mid 60's strafe and even low naval scores in reserve, will put them in the land based units. CV's get the cream of the crop.

Worst is the downsizing of my Torp squadrons. That hurts some.

@2ndACR: once the default resize is done, you can manually resize your CV groups.

This. Just click on the "resize allowed"/"do not resize" a couple times until it shows up.

If you have the new graphics (ships and squadrons) do they survive the update? And does Chemkid have a map with hexes?

Its also when the IJN CV's resize their groups.

I just installed the patch, no problems. However the Beta2 folder is still there, a sub-folder of witpae, same as before the patch install.

Can I now delete the Beta2 folder?

Since official patch is basically same as previous Beta, you can safely delete Beta2 folder.

So, if I'm already running Beta, any real reason to install this?

I haven't bothered yet. I'm not sure if there are any data updates rolled into it, so for a new game that would be a reason (depending on the scenario).
