We have released a major update for Strategic Command: World War I, featuring tournament support. Also, the popular Blue Max Graphical Mod is now officially implemented in the game as an optional skin.

Check out the full changelog:

GAME ENGINE CHANGES
• Fixed a NEW UNITS screen error that kept the OK button appearing as disabled even though it is enabled and clickable (sschnar1).
• Fixed an error where Armoured trains did not automatically provoke counter artillery fire that were in defensive range (Will952).
• Fixed some localization issues for Multiplayer games that were not translating properly between players in different languages (EarlyDoors).
• Fixed a resource supply/strength calculation error that did not see Minor controlled Primary/Industrial resources drop in strength when cut by rail to a Major Primary/Industrial supply source (mdsmall).
• Fixed a PBEM++ tournament game 'Save' and 'Quit' error that would end in a CTD.
• Fixed an issue that did not properly indicate that an artillery is no longer able to move or attack after an upgrade or reinforcement (Tanaka).
• Fixed an error in 'objective' based scenarios/campaigns where the wrong hex control was assigned for occupied but then liberated hexes.
• Fixed a naval combat error that did not properly have naval units demoralizing other naval units whenever applicable (Gilber).
• Fixed an AI purchase animation error that had it CTD when purchasing and replacing destroyed Carrier units (Ason).
• Fixed a bottom edge of the map scrolling and display glitch that would sometimes show units in the wrong positions (Chernobyl, OldCrowBalthazor).
• Fixed an HQ attachment range helper highlight that did not always match up with the actual attachment range (Pocus).
• Fixed a Partisan unit display error in the bottom operational interface panel when mouse hovering over the partisan unit (Pocus).
• Fixed a Purchase Unit screen error that did not list the correct country unit information when coming back from the Production screen and having switched countries.
• Fixed a Purchase Unit error that did not allow you to place Italian units in Sicily (Will952).
• Fixed a Carrier interception error that did not apply its current research level to the intercepting aircraft (Gilber).
• Free units from minor nations will now be able to upgrade relative to their current controlling major nation, previously they could not because consideration was still relative to their original parent nation (Gilber).
• Players can now switch between the strategic menu options without having to close the current window, e.g. switch back and forth directly from Diplomacy to Research, to Purchase Units etc (USGrant1962).
• Improved an AI HQ position vulnerability issue (Joseph).
• Improved GRAPHS screen readability with a relative max value between all nations per category (mdsmall).
• Loop sea transfer hexes enhanced for greater visibility (Christolos).

Yes, you may be right about this. The change is certainly a step in the right direction though. I think the base number of shells before logistics should be 3 rather than 5 myself.

Wow awesome that you devs update this game so much, I know it probably isn't your major money maker. Considering there are companies and titles which make hundreds of million$ or more and they don't respond to their community, this is insanely awesome support!

Not really, the 3 logistics costs 300MPP and further takes time to come, you need to spend on other more important stuff like upgrading artillery, infantry, trenches etc. first not to mention buying corps destroyed in 1914 and 1915.
Also 5 shells means Verdun has a chance to survive 1915 possibly. It has de-fanged artillery by limiting max experience to 11 than 13! also reduced shells from 10 to a maximum possible 8.

Sorry to hear about the trouble, the only thing I can think of here is to uninstall and then reinstall the game followed by the latest patch to see if that helps.

I am getting the following error message when I try to update through the game: "Unable to download file. An error occurred while trying to open an FTP file". Is their any link I can use on the matrix game website?

@MODS

First of all thanks a lot for the new patch, changes Italy, Artillery and Cetinje gambit and also Bulgarian gambit.
2 things-
1. The little problem of the Canadian corps needs to be resolved, the UK should get it even after October. (Maybe 3 months after they join or something).
2. The alternative convoy flowing to Salonika or something if Cetinje still falls.

Have you tried going to the members area within the Matrix site and downloading it directly from there?

https://www.matrixgames.com/member/mypage

The other option would be to try the 'Check for Updates' option within the game Launcher if that might work for you? I understand it doesn't always work for everyone but could be worth a try.

Yes, they are both noted.

Unfortunately Newfoundland is still not an independent country in the actaually update. I've done an own mod and changed that with also changing Bulgaria setting as a major power of the Central Powers and deleting artillery development. The development of granades I didn't delete. So I've reduced the power of the artillery to be more realistic in my opinion. It's good that the maximum shells of artillery has been reduced of 50 % down to maximum 5 shells per round. I've also changed the movement of air units for Italy and the Ottoman Empire that they can sent over to every other allied power.
