As we prepare for 1.04, I am wondering if there is an easy way to have both the current 1.03.01 release (for current PBEM games that do not yet want to upgrade) as well as 1.4 (for new PBEM games and to test the new release). on the same PC.

Most of the things in the game is in the scenario. The scenario data translates into the save. v4 won't, shouldn't, mess up v31 games.

Most bugs people talk about are code bugs. Some are scenario bugs. But any new code I create works backwards unless I add a brand new feature like the convoy on/off system which did impact current games. v4 fixes that.

The reason I ask is there is some hesitancy to upgrade a PBEM+ games immediately out of concern that something like what happened with the production queue might cause games to have to be stopped. Giving a few days to make sure nothing like that has been the approach the past release. But in the meantime, it would be great to have a chance to work with the new release.

If you want to try 2 versions then copy paste the game folder to another directory. Not the MyGames folder in the documents section.

So if WarPlan is C:\program files\Matrix\warplan.

Copy that to

C:\program files\Matrix\warplanOld

Then update

run older scenarios on warplanOld
newer ones on warplan - installed folder.

They share the same MyGames. Now for PBEM it does check the version for accepting challenges I believe based on an installer #.

So try at your own hazard
