Desert War Version 1.0.2 Available

Post by Daniele »

Hi everybody!

Desert War has been updated to version 1.0.2! This update brings many changes and improvements so be sure to check the Changelog below.

You can download the update from the Member Area or here

And also from the following mirrors:
http://ftp.us.matrixgames.com/pub/Deser ... v1.0.2.zip
http://ftp.eu.matrixgames.com/pub/Deser ... v1.0.2.zip
http://ftp.ca.matrixgames.com/pub/Deser ... v1.0.2.zip


Version 1.0.2
=============

Bug:
====

• HQs - if HQs eliminated, they remain on map (if Display Options is set to show HQs at top of stack at turn start).
• interdiction - In Unit Turn info, interdiction results are not shown correctly.
• Editor AI - In AI Tab, unit names have "Unit" prepended amd unit type appended, so when script runs, the unit is unknown.
• Artillery HQs not implemented (HQs containing a lot of artillery units should use more supply).
• Bug when assigning engineers to battle with no attack value.
• When assiging artillery to an enemy hex into which a friendly unit is moving, the friendly artillery sometimes defends the enemy unit.
• Editor: AI Setup zones not working.

Scenarios:
==========
README

BONUS - THE AMERICANS ADDED. For use by scenario designers, graphics have been added to support construction of scenarios that include American forces in Tunisia 1942-43.

BONUS - NEW SCENARIOS:

* Sidi Bou Zid (Historical). The battle of Sidi Bou Zid was fought as part of the campaign in Tunisia between 14-17 February 1943. On 14 February, the German 10th and 21st Panzer Divisions attacked through the Faid and Maizila mountain passes of the Eastern Dorsal. Their goal was to destroy elements of the U.S. 34th Infantry Division and 1st Armored Division whose defenses centered around the village of Sidi Bou Zid.

* Sidi Bou Zid (Free Set-up). Same as above except this version allows the human player(s) to set-up their units within their start areas as they see fit.


CHANGES/FIXES:

Images

* Added/updated army0, army1, and nato image files.

Scenarios

All scenarios.

* Clarification added to all Scenario Briefings: "Resupply Rate = Given the resupply per turn above, the Axis/Allies will receive enough supply for their entire force to have one turn of Move+ / Combat+ supply every x-number game turns. This calculation is based upon their starting Strength."
* Updated German and Spanish translations to reflect changes.


Operazione E

* Changed XXII Corps Artillery HQs level from Corps HQ to none.
* Changed XXIII Corps Artillery HQs level from Corps HQ to none.

The links seem to be fubared:

- On the Members' Area I can only find a 1.0.1 download
- The FTP link, instead of leading to a download, ends up with a connection time out

Hello there,

this is what I get from the Members Area. Note that the text is okay, but the filename is not.

The FTP points to the right file but times out.

Great game... Thanks!
My installation, though, is not on my C: drive. There is no option on the update installer to choose another drive. First time I've experienced this... Is it just me?

Still no option to choose to install update 1.0.2 on another drive than C:..!!... Any thoughts / plans on doing an update of the update installer and adding the 'Browse' option?? It cannot be unheard of in this SSD day and SSD age, that folk need to save space on their C: drive and choose another location.... Can it??

Hi Duncjons,

We are sorry you're having issues, hopefully we can get this sorted for you ASAP!

When you first installed Desert War, was it to the drive in question or to somewhere on the C drive and then it was subsequently moved to save space on your C: Drive?

The way our updates work, is they read where you first installed the game to and updates the files within that folder.

When you run the update what location is given when you reach the 'Ready to Install' page? - the default location is C:\Program Files (x86)\Matrix Games\Desert War 1940-1942 for example
