Hi Everyone!

We have a new installer version for the Public Beta, which you can find on the Store page or 'My Page' if you're logged in and have the game registered.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All save game and scenario files created with this or later versions may only be loaded with this or a later version. Versions prior to 1.01.02 may not load these newer save game or scenario files. Old saves and scenarios may be loaded with this and newer versions.

v01.01.02 – Changelog

    New Features and Rule Changes
      • Added “Display Scaling Percentage” preference item. This allows players some control over scaling their display in-game. Note that when this version is first used, the system will automatically reset all preferences to default and attempt to set a scaling percentage that is best given your windows display settings. Players can change the scaling percentage by hovering over the value in the preference screen and selecting from the dropdown list. The game will only allow the player to select scaling percentages that fit their current display. When you change the scaling percentage, it is necessary to exit the program and restart in order for the new setting to take effect. At this time, items that appear on the right and top bars are not scaled, but the map and all other windows are impacted by the scaling percentage preference.
      • Editor - Unit/Air group transfer TB flags will be automatically cleared when a scenario is loaded into the Editor. These transfer flags display in-game dynamic state and should be clear at the start of any scenario. Loading and saving off a scenario in the editor will now clear this info.
      • Added Living Manual v1.03.pdf file in the \Manuals folder. This is up to date with changes through game version 1.01.00.

    Bug Fixes and AI Improvements
      • Units that detach from city forts disappear (placed in 0,0). Fixed.
      • Dismissing leader via leader pic on right bar doesn't dismiss leader but does cost some APs. Fixed.
      • Minus Fuel on hand at AB after Air Freight Transport. Fixed. (system will use city fuel or convert freight at stage base into fuel from the pool).
      • In rare situations, resources/supplies/fuel/oil stored in a city could go negative. Fixed in 1.01.00 but unreported in the whatsnew.
      • CTD when trying to create AD for PVO Air Command in RGOW. Fixed. (Also data change with RGOW scenario).
      • CTD from clicking on manpower on left of production screen. Fixed.
      • Selecting "Mission" text on air unit detail activates disband unit window instead of fighter/bomber switch. Fixed.
      • Units in Oranienbaum and Kronstadt are not isolated when cut off. Fixed.
      • Player in the middle of a game is dropped into the editor. Fixed.
      • Can attach 11 units to a city fort instead of just 10. Fixed.
      • Destroyed Damaged numbers in the Battle Report Detail General Info tab are incorrect. Fixed.
      • AP cost and APs available are not immediately updating on Soviet build unit screen. Fixed.
      • Can assign combat units and additional support units to FBD/NKPS units (should not be possible). Fixed.
      • Event open when Event window opens doesn’t immediately reduce unread count. Fixed.
      • Axis Allied manpower production is using German production usage percentage instead of using Axis Allied production usage. Fixed.
      • Production screen built number for German manpower showed a negative value at the start of some small scenarios. Fixed.
      • AI - During AI turn, a human player AOG changes the higher level AOG it is assigned to. Fixed.
      • AI - CTD at 38% of Soviet AI in 1943. Fixed.
      • AI - Strange Ai attack with only support units and no defender listed. Fixed.

As noted above, this update has the first release of our in-application scaling. Everything is now scaled by the application except for the right side unit bar (and turn summary) and the top button bar. We're planning to add scaling for the right side in a future update. We're still debating whether the top button bar needs scaling. For those of you giving this a try, please read through the changes notes above and give us your feedback on the scaling in this thread.

If you decide the in-application scaling is not for you, please let us know why. You can also switch back to the system scaling by setting your in-application scaling preference to 100% and using the instructions in this thread to re-enable the system scaling compatibility settings: https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4991284

Regards,

- Erik

Servers won't work for me

The download/server doesn't work for me.
The above error message appears when the European server tries to download.
The error message below is presented to me when I try to down load via the small/the upper Canada east Server.

Asking this question for new purchasers.

Can this be installed over the base 1.0 game or are other patches required first?

We just got a report that there's an issue with the OKH leader in the Velikie Luki scenario. I'm not yet sure what changed in v1.01.02 that made Halder's dismissal kick in, but based on his leader dismissal date, he shouldn't be in the scenario. You can find a hotfix for that scenario in the second post here: v1.01.02 VL scenario fix

I must say I really like the scaling. Graphics look crispy again, and about the right size. But I do find the right panel, and it leader pictures on HQ's, slightly too small at 125% scaling.

Does "at this time" imply that there is a plan and a timetable for making the ENTIRE game playable on a 32" 4k monitor WITHOUT having to downscale the resolution of the monitor?

Increasing scaling to 200% makes the highest zoom level acceptable with regard to legibility for the map area. However, as stated it does nothing for the control buttons that are crammed into the upper left corner and too small to be discernable without a mighty effort, nor the right bar that is completely illegible without getting my face 6" from the screen.

Until you commit to correcting these failures this game remains unplayable for me.

As explained above, scaling for the right side and possibly the top buttons is in the works.

You can also have everything scale right now using the system compatibility settings, per the instructions in this thread:

I let it default to AUTO 100% (1080p Window), and then reset all my other game preference.

It seems this is just as it is before. Will it remain so? (As I have programmed mouse movements to my gaming controls to reduce the number of hotkeys.)

Thank you!

The new scaling is great.
My very minor beef is having to restart after
changing preferences.

The scaling is a welcome addition, thanks.

minor display bug: hexes with fortified zones seem to only show the FZ and none of the stacking units in the hex until you click onto the hex to reveal the other units stacking there

I'm not exactly sure what your question is, but I think the answer is yes. We have a few more things to set up to scale in-game, but I don't think the preference settings are going to change again.

There was a problem with the Stalingrad to Berlin campaign scenario files released starting with 1.01.00 where the first turn Soviet AI script was not working correctly. That has been fixed, and a hotfix for the scenario file has been uploaded in the 4th post here: Stalingrad to Berlin Campaign hotfix

Joel,

Thanks for these fixes.

I have highly programmable controls. Also, I suffer from tremors/twitches (motor problems). So, I often convert UI buttons to key strokes ... even when they have key strokes as it easier to group things and avoid finger twisting hitting multiple button to make things work.

Make code depends on UI elements not shifting their pixel locations (or I would need to rewrite ... so nothing moved with AUTO-100). Finally, I have the controls practically identical between WITW and WITE-2. (even thought WITW used multi-clicks and with WITE-2 uses drop downs)

Samples (WITE-2) ...

Joel,

The positional code looks like this. So, it is important that the whole interface for 1080p stays constant.

NumPadADD::
{ ;Directives
MouseGetPos, OutputVarX, OutputVarY,
MouseMove, 234,41,0,
Sleep 200
Click
Sleep 200
MouseMove, 559,74,0,
Sleep 200
Click
Sleep 200
MouseMove, %OutputVarX%, %OutputVarY%,
Return
}

If you have any programming experience, then take a look at:

www.autohotkey.com

You can easily hot key those tabs say to 1, 2, 3 on the numpad, and you don't need to see anything.

For example, these 3 lines are selecting the middle tab at 1080p.

MouseMove, 234,41,0,
Sleep 200
Click
