Attached is another update to the v1.23.00 beta that fixes a few more bugs. Plus an update to the release notes for v1.23.00 that did not get included.

Empires in Arms the Napoleonic Wars - 1.23.02
=============================================
- Rebuild code file changes from v1.22.02 through v1.23.01 beta - resolved.
- Supply path not working more than 1 area from depot - resolved.
- Simultaneous diplomacy freezes (Waiting For MP Turns) with last player (Spain) - resolved.
- View Fleets On Anti-Piracy Missions screen not displaying - resolved.

Empires in Arms the Napoleonic Wars - 1.23.01
=============================================
- PBEM Admin button not working in 1.23.00 - resolved.
- Unloading unit from fleet not working in 1.23.00 - resolved.
- Placing friendly supply source depots not working in 1.23.00 - resolved.
- Change "Allow Separate Peace" to "Deny Separate Peace" to make separate peace standard unless checked to deny it - resolved.
- Add France and Austria have a royal marriage (peace condition B.5) to setup for 1812 Grand Campaign - resolved.

Empires in Arms the Napoleonic Wars - 1.23.00
=============================================
- Add Bernadotte as Swedish leader - resolved (see new rule 13.8.9).
- Allow loaned units to use home nation depots and allied units to use allied depots, where controlling player pays supply costs - resolved.

This was very challenging to find and fix (I think) the new problems with supply and pbem sim dip. I was concerned that the build may have been corrupted somehow, so I rebuilt the v1.23 changes to the last official version. If nothing else, I have a more solid build for debugging.

As before with the v1.23.01 update, PLEASE update to v1.23.00 Beta first and then install the v1.23.02 Beta EXE file into the game directory to replace the v1.23.00 EXE. Very easy. IMPORTANT NOTE: "Allow Separate Peace" is changed to "Deny Separate Peace", so for games in progress players should recheck their settings.

I will continue to work on some AI improvements and other enhancements. Surrender tweaks for "offer conditional" are on hold unless I hear players really want a change, but I am inclined to close out these Mantis issues. Lastly, the 1812 campaign setups "work" but have issues that we as a community need to discuss and resolve. Please see my other post and provide your ideas. Better setups for France, Russia, and Spain would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

UPDATE 11/15/2019: I got reports of Page Not Found error when downloading the attached zip file with the v1.23.02 EXE. I have re-uploaded the file and it seems OK now. This keeps getting weirder as we go.

Maple Leaf has reported problems with two PBEM games in progress. I have started work on v1.23.03 to resolve these issues. So far there are three bugs fixed and I have sent out an interim update for these pbem groups to playtest and continue their games.

Empires in Arms the Napoleonic Wars - 1.23.03
=============================================
- Spanish guerrilla attacks causing human pbem players to be swapped with AI - resolved.
- Simultaneous diplomacy freezes (Waiting For MP Turns) with last player (Spain) due to logic errors - resolved.
- Fleets forced to evacuate port not fighting naval blockade battle - resolved.


The AI swapping and sim dip problems have been frustrating pbem games ever since v1.22.02 was released. After receiving a couple of good game saves to work with, I think these bugs are finally fixed. Hopefully. We shall see.

I intend to work on a couple of other items before releasing v1.23.03 Beta later next week. I know this has been very frustrating for pbem players over the past year or more. It's also been very frustrating for me to find and fix these nasty bugs. Please hang in there. We may finally be getting out of the foul weather and into sunshine and rainbows for a change!!

For info, I came back to this game after a couple of years of not playing it and re-installed using 1.23.00. Utterly impossible to place any depots as the French (against AI). I uninstalled and then reinstalled with the old setup and it was fine.

I fixed the depot bug in the v1.23.01 Beta update. I've got a few more bug fixes that will be in the v1.23.03 Beta update next week. We're getting there.

Cool! In the meantime, I downloaded the 1.23.02 update but it won't run, it says there's a problem with my installation and I should contact Matrix support. Any ideas?

And thanks for continuing to update this classic game!

You may need to do an uninstall, reboot, and fresh install? Install original game first, then the comprehensive v1.23.00 Beta, and then the v1.23.02 EXE update. V1.23.03 will be another EXE update later this week. FYI, you can have multiple installations, one for the last official v1.22.02 update and one for the Beta. I don't exactly have playtesters helping me, so the public betas are the means to find new issues. I am trying to keep up!!

I'm afraid that doesn't work, I still get the same message. The install doesn't begin, as soon as the exe file is double clicked it says that there's a problem with the installation, then dumps. Don't sweat it, I'll wait for 1.23.03 and let you know if that works. Again, thanks!

Hello SaintEx,

The .exe is not an install file. It is the real game executable which needs to be copied manually into your EiA folder.

Best regards,

Hapshott
