1.02.13 Public Beta Update Now Available!

Post by JosephStephenson »

Hi everyone,

Hope you all had a good New Year.

Steam users can find the beta under beta branch.

It is also available as a zip file for download via this Download link.

Here's the change list for this Beta update:

v01.02.13 – 24th December 2021
New Features and Rule Changes
• Several changes to flak, some bug fixes (especially in what flak guns were listed as participating), some adjustments to formulas, with the net being a major reduction in flak losses. Also reduced air to air and op losses.
• Several changes to ground combat, including reducing the effectiveness of towed guns in the attack, and adjustments to mortars. Also added a chance for indirect fire weapons to participate in hasty attacks (on both sides). If they participate, their rate of fire will be greatly reduced.
• Scaled HQ set color window and ground element/aircraft icons.
• Change to Logistics – It is possible for supplies and fuel in cities to automatically be converted to freight in the depot in the hex, with the supplies and freight returning to the pool (I don’t think this was ever documented but has always been the case). This has now been changed so it no longer happens in isolated cities.
Bug Fixes and AI Improvements
• Enemy equipment is imported even when none is in the captured pool, as it could incorrectly take from the enemy equipment pool of the weapon instead of the friendly pool of captured equipment. Fixed.
• Fixed a problem when air units that don’t have the same number of aircraft and pilots are sent from the map to the reserve. Now, if there are more pilots than aircraft, the excess pilots will be removed from the unit and put in the free pilot pool. If the unit has more aircraft than pilots, the extra aircraft will be sent to the pool.

o Added Kampfgruppe OBs for Infantry Divisions, Panzer Divisions and Motorized/Panzergrenadier Divisions. All kampfgruppes are brigade sized and are about 6-8k men. Infantry KGs are based around a single infantry regiment and its artillery regiment. Panzer KGs are based on a single panzergrenadier regiments, artillery regiment and a single panzer battalion. Mot/Panzergrenadier KGs are based on a single panzergrenadier regiment and artillery regiment. If any unit becomes depleted in the scenario, it automatically "upgrades" to the Kampfgruppe OB. For expansion scenarios.

v01.02.12 – 15th December 2021
New Features and Rule Changes
• This version includes the War in the West editor manual in the /Manuals folder that was accidentally left out of the 1.02.11 official update. Although there are many differences between the WitW and WitE2 editors, the WitW editor manual is a useful guide to understanding the WitE2 editor.
• Greatly reduced the chance that more men show as disrupted in the combat report detail than were in the battle. If it happens, this indicates an element has been disrupted more than once.
Bug Fixes and AI Improvements
• Day/night button on top menu display not appearing during air transport ops. Fixed.
• Can air transport any unit into an enemy hex adjacent to friendly airbase and it acts like an airborne drop. Fixed (not allowed into enemy hexes).
• More AT guns are built than the build limit. Fixed.
• Guards Rifle Corps was incorrectly downgraded to a Guards Rifle Division. Unit used to create corps had a rename that was not cleared that should have been cleared at the time of corps creation. Fixed.
• AI - Soviet unit warps to near Vienna (far behind enemy lines). Fixed.
• AI – Improved Axis AI in late war.

Hi everyone,

This fixes the critical warping bug, as well as including a number of other important fixes and changes. We expect this to go official later this week, but recommend that all players update to this beta ASAP.

Regards,

- Erik

Wow, lots of fixes. I also like the ability to download via link rather than going to the Matrix site. Curious about the changes in mortars and guns. When you say accuracy improved from 0 to 100, are you talking percent, yards, meters? Does that mean the mortars were complete inaccurate before. Same with the bigger guns going from 250 to 350...what exactly does that mean? Also, noticed that Husi AF has been removed. I had some planes there in my game that aren't there now, but can't remember which squadrons they were. Where would the game have moved them to? Would they default to the closest available AF?

IIRC Gary uses the accuracy number as the range at which the weapon has an unadjusted 50% chance of hitting. He also has used it at times for other purposes, but that's the main use.

OK and thanks for the ongoing supreme support !

KG interesting... I hope they can become dual purpose/SU then they will be quite useful and show the value of them.

It means that previously all of that 0 - 100 weapons had very low chance of hitting anything?

Anyway thanks for a patch, i really think that feedback from players -> patches will make this game very enjoyable for each side.

Hmmm...I did NOT restart a new campaign, but my first turn with the new patch I lost 56 recon planes to FLAK and 6 operational in 890 sorties. Prior to the patch on the previous 8 turns, I was losing 15-30 max of my recon to FLAK. Based on the patch notes, FLAK is supposed to be less deadly, right? FWIW, I manually steer my planes away from FLAK so I didn't change my methodology. I will monitor future turns to see if the trend continues.

I think Recon and flak is still an issue not yet resolved. See my post in tech support on this issue.

FWIW I was flying all recon at 17,000 feet with these losses and none over city Flak towers.

Note that the 81mm grw34 mortar still has an accuracy rating of 0 in cg41 (no early end)

Also 210mm M35 L23.8 and 210 nbw 42 rocket have accuracy ratings of 0. I am sure there are more weapons with this problem. Is there any way to scan the files for any weapon with an accuracy rating of 0 in order to catch all of these?

Hi,
Seemed to have gone straight from 01.02.11 to 01.02.13. Is that a problem? Are all the beta updates cumulative?

No problem, changes from 02.12 are also in 02.13. I did the same update 02.11 -> 02.13. Works fine

Yes, there is. Load the generic data, export the "Devices" to a CSV file, open it and freeze the top row. Select column I and look for values = 0 [:)]

I think it is fantastic that the game constantly gets tweaked and made better, at least in my opinion I think that is BEST. But for those of us who do extensive changes to campaigns/scenarios which require extensive changes to the generic files, every time there is a new fix then game "tweakers" (like myself) must re do all their changes and restart their campaign/scenarios. Is there any update on the editor release? Could that be given a little more priority? Once that is done then most updates could be applied without any issues.

Same. I am currently tweaking all the historical support units for the Soviets for my 1941-45 GC and it's a bit of a pain to track down each individual correction done to the official 1941 scenario and introduce them into my modded units file! [;)]

To avoid high OP and flak losses I increase in editor armor rating of all single engine planes from 0-1 to 2 and all multi engine planes to 3. Some planes like I&#322;-2 and Hs-129 goes to AR 4. It really works for me.
I also increased overall impact of air force by multiple damage of bombs and rocket for 2,5 x for Soft attack and 2x for hard attack.
