Hi Everyone,

A new Public Beta is now available for testing!

Grab the download from the Public FTP.

Please see the v1.050 Beta Change Log below.

1. Added Multiplayer to replace the PBEM system. This is accessed via one of the arrow buttons on the main menu (this button art will be changed in the final version). More info below.
2. Fixed the East/West Scenario that was previously incorrectly ending on turn 1. Also, changed Paris so it is worth 2 VPs.
3. Fixed a map bug that could cause some improper op fire near the Philippines.

Multiplayer – To utilize the multiplayer server, first create a user account at slitherine.com. You can use this to log into the multplayer lobby screen. There you can create a challenge game, choosing the scenario, game options, and number of players. You can also view challenges created by others which you can join. You can also see a list of games you are currently playing.

Happy Gaming!

Hi everyone, this update to AWD replaces the TCP/IP multiplayer system which was having issues and the old PBEM system with the up to date PBEM++ system which our current games use. This makes multi-player much more friendly and easy to use.

However, we need your help to test and troubleshoot this.

Please also note the current UI art is purely placeholder. Once testing is complete, that will be replaced with final art.

Regards,

- Erik

I'll download the beta patch and test it once I'm back from my holidays.
Pity not many people seem to play it nowadays.

Why don't you announce the new pbem system for AWD in a thread in Matrix press releases, news and events section?

Unfortunately Erik is away for the next 10 days on vacation, so it's not likely anything will be announced for a bit. Matrix may want to get some users testing this before announcing anything wider. We've done some internal testing, but really need to see some players use the new multiplayer version to know if we're ready for prime time. If you try an MP game, please let us know how it's going. When Erik returns we'll discuss whether we need to do more to find some betatesters.

Hi Joel, same applies to me I'll be back in ten days time from the beach, I will then try to find an opponent, I'm thinking of sending Jon P. an email to see how things are going for him and will ask if he had time for a testing game.
Kind regards.

I have created a challenge with the new patch, though I am not sure if anyone will see it.

I see your game that you set up. Hopefully someone will come along. Erik should be back this week and we'll see if we can open it up to some new betatesters.

Hi Joel, my game has been accepted today and have played the first turn.
I saw my opponent sent a message but I didn't see where is the button to send them. This button should be easy to spot. After sending the turn, are you able to send a message?

No, IIRC, you can only send a message before you send the turn. I assume it goes with the turn file.

Matrix says they did a mailing today to the registered owners that they were legally able to email to. So hopefully this will generate some interest from owners. Looking forward to hearing how things go with the new MP system.

Thanks for the email. I'd never patched the game, so I had to do that before this one. It's inspired me to actually learn to play it

I think you can only send a message when setting up the game, once started I haven't found the way to do it. It would be nice to be able to send a message to your opponent even if only a short one.

I received my invitation, but have no idea where my game is. So I've reached out to the Support Team for assistance. This old classic is probably in the attic, as I suspect I had the CD version, and I don't have a CD drive on my latest computer, so not much point looking :(

You can download the game from the member's area as long as you have it registered. No need to search for the CD.

So far so good on the beta testing. I see several games are well in progress. Also, we have made it to the last player on turn 2 of a 5 player test with no issues.

If I start a game with basic supply and switch it to advance supply, it nukes supplies down to 0.
Confident it's a bug!

I don't have the game in front of me at the moment, but is that something that can only be changed when playing against the AI, or are you saying that's something that can be changed in MP play?

Well going from basic to advanced would not make sense anyway. Where would the program decide to individually place the supply trucks? All back at the capital at the time you turn on advanced? In reality that would fubar your game. Then all them supplies would have to be shuffled back to the front lines taking up a lot of time. Going from advanced to basic would be ok though.

Yes I was tinkering in single player as I just got back hands on the game in perspective of potential MP games and I feel people play with Advanced Supplies in general.

Still won't run on my system. Joe at support has sent various ideas none of which helped unfortunately. I'm quite confident the installation is good but still no joy. I click the play field, and the splash screen flickers to life and then dies.

My setup is a fairly solid and mainstream gaming laptop from Asus ROG Strix line, with more than enough power for the published specs. If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to participate in the testing.

Can you recall the exact sequence of steps you took to see this issue with supply resetting to zero ? I've just run a few trial solo (non server) games and can't change supply options once a game has started?

I'm amazed, it runs excellent on my 1920x1080 system. Just like it did about a decade ago. Smooth menus, music, sounds, wow... brings back good memories. Just have to do the tutorials now.

Yes, I just posted a note that the 1.051 update should be out soon. This just has a few fixes and improvements, and should become the official version after a short run as a public bets. The work is done, it's just getting an updated installer and should be posted in the next few days.

The official 1.051 is not out and the 1.050 link is bad.
Help.

There is no 1.051 official yet. You can go here: https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4958431 to get the 1.051 beta, and then you can go to the thread for the 1.052 beta and add that to 1.051. I hope that helps. Sorry for the confusion.
