Have just recently purchased this game and have run into the 2nd Army bug.
Am on version 26 (current patch) however reading the forum it seems that the bug is also being reported under version 27.
What is the current status of this ?
Is there any way to play (vs AI) so that the bug does not activate ?

Hi tyronec,

The 2A bug was fixed in version 28 back in January. Your copy, if it's been bought recently, should have this.

If it's a Steam game it should auto-update otherwise with a direct purchase there is an update option when you start the Slitherine/Matrix menu.

Where and when did you buy the game?

Cheers,
Cameron

Bought on 15th August from Matrix.
I ran the update link before using the game, have checked the link again and it is showing updated to latest patch.

Hi tyronec,

Could you send me a copy of a save game, with the 2A bug in play, and I'll take a look and see what's going on?

cameron dot tasmania at gmail dot com.

Thanks.

Cheers,
Cameron

It would seem this extremely annoying bug has returned!

I updated last week via the game splash screen (v1.05) and again today I was told when I repeated the procedure that I have the latest version.

July 20, 1941 second Army appears unannounced in Kaunas and all its attendant divisions score PP penalties. I moved the whole army over the border into the Central zone and all four divisions again cost me PPs!
Then I see the 'Free Card' (why hide it?) to deploy 2nd Army to central theatre. There's now two 2nd army HQs in the same hex 3 hexes SE of Kaunas.

Very annoying as this was supposed to be my definitive playthrough having mastered the game.

My previous version had had this bug cured, so why is it back?

Hi Energisteron,

Nope, the bug has been squashed but there's been a mix up with files, apparently, when you update, or purchase.

Vic is trying to sort it out at present.

Sorry about the inconvenience. Vic will let you know when it's been resolved.

Cheers,
Cameron

Yes and Vic is trying to get the Matrix version Installer & Updater to be fixed. We are almost there.

My sincere apologies.

Best wishes,
Vic

I'm not sure what the bug is here but I have gotten a message to deploy the 2nd Army and can't figure out how to do it. HELP ?

AFAIK you are supposed to play a card. Also check the version, as described by Vic.

Hi miles,

Deploy the 2A HQ via the action card and the divisions will automatically follow on their own accord depending on their schedule.

Information on the divisions should be in the AGC daily reports.

There's a few variables involved in when the divisions arrive (it's covered in the manual) but common sense goes a long way. Deploy 2A HQ on a rail hex or in a city for optimum results as the divisions will arrive at it's location.

Cheers,
Cameron
