Hi Everybody,

The dev team have been busy working on your feedback and we have a new beta available for you!

Please download the patch from here

It is also available on the following platforms:

For Steam

Right click on the game and select "Properties". Select the “Betas” tab. The Beta tag "Beta - Public Beta" will appear in the Beta dropdown list. Select it and close the Properties window. Steam should now update the game to the beta version. If the update does not start automatically, launch the game to force the update process or 'verify integrity of game files' from the 'Local Files' tab.


For GOG

Click the 'More' tab next to the 'Play' button - go to 'Settings', enable the Beta Channels and select the Beta channel from the channel dropdown.

Please see the changelog below for the list of changes!

New Features
1. Highlighting units in poor supply will now mark with red own units that are more than 100 MP or 25 hexes from railhead, and with yellow own units that are more than 57 MP or 18 hexes from railhead (which is where penalties to resupply from railhead drop below 50%). Bear in mind that since 1.12.00 hexes from railhead are measured along the same path as MP are, not in a straight line.
2. It will be now again possible to trace land supply through Kerch strait (counts as major river).
3. Added or updated the following short forms:
a. English: Brandenburg Brdbg, Fallschirmjager FJ, Fallschirmjaeger FJ, Fuehrer Fu., Grenadier Gren., Grossdeutschland GD, Nederland Ndl
b. German: Fallschirmjäger FJ, Führer-Begleit Fü-Begl., Führer-Grenadier Fü-Gren., Großdeutschland GD, Nederland Ndl
4. Added "match flags" to ground elements. Elements of the same match family sharing at least one non-zero match flag (when examined as binary value), will be treated as having accepted match between them. This will allow them to be used in place of each other by the replacements routines. Maximum number of flags is 31 (per family). See Appendix A.
5. Increased the chance for German Infantry Divisions destroyed on or after 8/44 to rebuild as Volksgrenadier Divisions from 20% to 80%.
6. Rail repair units, airbases, HQs, and support units attached to them will not shatter in combat when forced to relocate from hex in which the battle occured.
7. Improved retreats and displacement moves, so that units will be able to reposition in situations where previously they would be destroyed. Unit will also take lower casualties due to retreats.
8. Disabled automatic scaling of the application due to Windows DPI settings. Font size will be adjusted automatically to maintain original size as best as possible. This will prevent images from getting blurry and/or fonts from getting too large to fit into their alloted areas. To enable previous behaviour set DPI scaling to "System" or "System (enchanced)" in application's compatiblity settings. There is now also a new command line argument "-noFontResize" that disables font size adjustment within the application.
9. Soviet AI will no longer build new and disband existing units in scenarios with unit rebuild disabled. Also, no units will be disbanded in scenarios shorter than 25 turns.
10. Added "no match flags" to ground elements. Elements of the same match type sharing at least one non-zero no match flag (when examined as binary value), will be treated as having no type match between them. This will prevent them from being used in place of each other by the replacement routines. Maximum number of flags is 31 (per type). See Appendix A.
11. Units that were supplied via sea (port) supply will be marked as such in unit's details window. These units will not be able to displace through enemy lines towards friendly territory, as is possible for units supplied overland during the same enemy's turn that they were encircled.
12. Reduced the speed at which partisan squads are recruited from countryside, and the chance for combat ready partisan units to spawn new units.
13. Changed repair modifier for Snow weather from -5 to -10, for Blizzard from -15 to -20, and for Mud from -25 to -30. Reduced base repair chance from 15 to 10. Reduced German vehicle repair bonus in 1941 from 5 to 0.
14. Changed the way in which the modifier that reduces the number of replacements a unit may ask for due to supply situation it is in is calculated. It will now be based on the following supply modifiers: Range to railhead, MP to railhead, Movement, Axis Rail Supply, and First Winter. It will be better for stationary units close to railhead, but much worse for units that have moved, and are far away from railhead.

Bug fixes
1. Fixed a bug in calculating supply and fuel required by units resupplying from a HQ, which shouldn’t take into account MP and range to railhead penalties into account. These penalties will be now correctly applied at later step, when actually requesting and receiving supply and fuel from cities. This prevented units to operate more than 25 hexes or 100 MP from railhead, even if they were within HQ supply range, and that HQ was within railhead supply range. Also, this prevented HQs to act better as a buffer, dispensing reserves on hand to units needing them (bear in mind that HQs will still try to maintain some reserves). All other penalties are still applied at the earliest possible step. Supply details window will still show Range and MP modifiers based on unit's actual distance to railhead, because they are taken into account in other steps of the logistics phase (for example: units more than 100 MP from railhead are unable to recieve and/or return vehicles).
2. Fixed a bug in calculating the percentage of required supply and fuel dumps available in a HQ after it was resupplied from a city. Wrong value caused some units to take more than they should, while others were left starving.
3. Fixed a bug where out-of-supply trace could be determined to be better than in-supply trace, leading to isolated units in case of a very long land connection despite having access to port supply. "In-supply" means going through 0 enemy hexes, and not above 100MP and/or 25 hexes from rail.
4. Fixed a bug where on-map units were not rebuilding nor arriving according to reinforcement schedule in scenarios that didn't use entire map. It will be now up to scenario parameter to decide whether unit rebuilds are allowed or not. To prevent unit rebuilds in smaller scenarios, five were updated: Op Mars 1942 Red God of War, Operation Konrad, Road to Kiev, Road To Smolensk, Smolensk 1941.
5. Fixed a bug where the game was unable to load WiteFontConfig.txt file and always used default font configuration.
6. Fixed a bug where units more than 25 hexes (but not more than 100 MP) from railhead were considered isolated.

● Flag 23 is 4194304
● Flag 24 is 8388608
● Flag 25 is 16777216
● Flag 26 is 33554432
● Flag 27 is 67108864

● Flag 31 is 1073741824

Example: for an element to match with other elements having flags 3 or 5: 4 + 16 = 20, so enter match flags value of 20 into ground elements data.

Happy Gaming!

Should I assume now that the bug that caused units to surrender even when they were not surrounded has been fixed?

Hi there,

Much appreciated for the patch, however the toggle isolated function (red bordered) seems not working ... previously working in 1.12.02


Tks,

No. It does not work.

Soviet units circled in red should be indicated as encircled/isolated but are not.

I think this is WAD that it doesn't show for enemy units now.

That should not be WAD!. It is game breaking. It is necessary for the human player to see isolated enemy pockets not just their units as in this screenshot.

This is a bug.

You can still hover over an opponent's unit and see its supply path (SP) number. If the SP is -1, the unit is isolated. So this is just about the display, not the actual information available to the player.

+1

Seems like a bug to me.

Even if you maintain that it is not a bug @morvael this needs to be changed. The function is there for a reason: to make life easier for a human player. You could ofc also mouse over each enemy unit and see that they are isolated, but that is very time consuming and silly, when there is a better alternative already.

This change adds 0 to the game and I doubt there is any player who wanted it to be added. Please fix.

I prefer to have visual confirmation of isolation than having to hover over individual units.

Im curious what people think about the divided rail capacity (75%/25%). Easier turn 2 super-duper-Lvov-pocket when you cant rail out slow units not trapped turn 1? 25% less USSR industry evacuated the starting turns? I see the logic of the division, but what about game balance? I havent seen any comments about it so I suppose its all good, but I hardly think it favours USSR (which was the underdog earlier).

Well, it's not divided actually, the second one is extra. Rail capacity for industry evacuation is assumed to represent trains moving mostly eastward, while the one used for supplies and moving units is assumed to represent trains moving mostly westward.

The westbound rail capacity is lower for troops because it is mostly used up hauling supplies in the logistics phase.

It would be better if you could use the eastbound capacity to move troops in an easterly direction. So evacuating those guys from forward positions in the early turns of the 1941 game could be done as an alternative to moving factories (not available at all in the early turns anyway).

How do we decide when a patch is official? Just general question. I've got two ongoing games using 1.12, and another one where the other players aren't ready to shift to the beta. Switching back and forth is not a big deal with Steam, but it would be nice to be playing all my games with the same set of rules.

It's an arbitrary decision, but it requires confidence that beta patch is stable enough, and doesn't have any serious issues. Which wasn't the case with 1.12 so far. 1.12.03 is a promising candidate, but it's been public for too short period of time.

Yeah, I just wanted to prevent highlighting from betraying information about enemy units, but in the case of permanent isolation it is indeed useful for the other player (they are shouting "mop us up").

The problem of being able to find no HQs to assign some units to is fixed as far as I can see. Tried several panzer and motorized units and all had a full list, no empty ones.
Also the supply problems I reported while testing 1.12.02 seem to be fixed.

Good work.

I just observed a seemingly wrong retreat direction on turn 1. In the picture the 28-6 mtn division has just attacked directly east, and the Soviet unit retreated SW to it it now directly SE of the attacker. Seems strange, but could this be the result of randomization? Edit: just started a new game and it is repeatable.

The divided rail capacity is a big issue for the Soviets. What if on game setup the percentage could be specified like morale, supply, etc. instead of always being 10%?

You may be on to something, something that I didn't expect. Out of three possible hexes it has chosen lowest scored one, where I was expecting selection of highest scored one. So the scoring process is OK, but there's something wrong with selecting best score.

After fixing the bug, that unit retreats to the hex with tank unit, as it's highest scored hex of the three. It's best one in four categories, second best in two, worst in two, tied in one (they are not weighted equally).

It was selection process that was wrong, thanks for providing easy to replicate example that I could use to fix it.
