Following the link for the update, 1.002, I get the following,

for the Primary Server:-


This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
<response>
<Result>false</Result>
<ErrorCode>404</ErrorCode>
<ErrorComment>Not Found: Download not available</ErrorComment>

And for the Secondary Server:-

The only way I could update was through the start up menu.

There seems to be a missing text file on the update/installer pop-up window but the install went fine. Or at least I think it did. Where can we check what version we are running? Nothing in the main screen or options window...

Edit: This is as much as I could find in that regard...

Which dosent seem right. Unless it´s for the Matrix launcher.

The whatsnew.pdf didn't open for me either, but I think in my case it had something to do with Adobe Reader. I heard that at least for one person it was opened successfully. It can be found in the game folder.

The game version number is in the game splash screen top-left corner.

Yeap, got it! Thank you Veitikka, that was a fast reply [:)]

The splash screen shows the correct updated version. The whats new PDF did open for me, so good there too.

Edit: Sorry, I meant to say the "Patch Notes" PDF did launch for me. (on the Matrix launcher).

I didnt sleep much last night so Iam a bit thick-headed today!

In fact, I get the same as zacklaws reported in post 1 above. The above for FTP 2, and what he posted for the first link. So something's broke...

i've just done it on 2 pc's and it worked both times, and was very fast as it's a small file / update, so maybe something locally or issue elsewhere, but it's working and been tested fine i'm sorry to say, all i can offer is try another browser or keep trying at different times etc, or use the members area links and not the ingame auto updater etc

regarding the ftp sites, they don't always work straight away and give them a bit more time, and then they do, seems to be how it works for some reason, but in game auto updater does atm, and has been tested 2 times in the last 10 mins.

but will report it either way, and see if other links can be provided etc

True, the in-game updtaer works fine. BUT, the updater - for some reason - doesn't give you an install choice - it is fixed to install in the matrix default, which is not where I have my copy installed. So can't use that, without moving my install.....

Use the in-game updater. It works fine. But make sure you first move your install to C\program Files (x86)\Matrix Games\ Armored Brigade If it's not already there.

I had no issues with the in-game updater, it found my folder where I have it installed with no issues.

Why, is this not the in-game updater?

If you have a running AV program, you may need to make an exception for the new updater in the game's main folder.
