BOR public beta patch 1.03 (OUTDATED, CLOSED)

Sat Sep 28, 2013 11:09 pm

[color="#FF0000"]WARNING: THERE IS A BUG IN THIS PATCH THAT CAUSES A CRASH IN MULTICHOICE EVENTS IN AJE SCENARIOS (CAESAR VS POMPEY SCENARIO, MARIUS VS SULLA, SEVERUS) AND ALSO IN BOR (MERCENARY WAR AND PYRRHUS). A NEW PATCH WILL CORRECT THIS SHORTLY. SORRY[/color]


Hello

Below the link for the new BOR 1.03 public beta patch.

It comes as part of the work leading to the imminent release of Parthian Wars expansion, and prepares Alea Jacta Est / Birth of Rome for it, although some of the improvements and fixes of this patch will affect BOR directly.

As usually, we do not expect major problems (although this patch may not be compatible with saved games with previous versions), but if you do not wish to try a beta patch, you can wait for the official release of patch 1.03.

So:

Patch 1.03

************


NEW EXE
- Reduce tendency of "wild" cavalry raids
- AI cavalry forces less prone to stay in a siege
- Fix to a bug in development level in regions
- Added functionality, SHIFT now shows the region links of the region below the cursor (if no Stack is selected).
- Additional stacks in same region now get the name of their leader in the region tooltip (the 'Also there' lines)
- Movement path is now color coded

and a lot more small fixes

UI

- New faction icons in Unit recruitment mode (thanks, Picaron !)
- Small tweak to assets icons in main screen (EP now are represented by the bolt)

SCENARIOS AND DB FIXES


All scenarios
- Removed cavalry element from "post-Marius" legions (does not affect BOR scenarios)
- Changed VP values of Roman cohorts (from 10 to 3) and legatus (from 10 to 20)
- Light Infantry, Skirmisher and Raider models hide value lowered to 2
- Changed Cav detect value to 4 for most models (5 for the expert scout nations)

First Punic War 264 BC scenario:
- An additionnal alae legion is possible to recrute for Rome and the Boii are stronger with a noble unit at start.


Parthian Wars expansion:
- Data (events, options, etc) for all scenarios
(NOTE: to play Parthian Wars expansion you have to own Alea Jacta Est)


NB:
Due to database changes patch 1.03 will not be, in principle, guaranteed compatible with saved games
Also, some changes will not be applied yet to the "old" DLC scenarios (Spartacus and Cantabrian Wars), like the removal of cavalry from legions


_____

[color="#FFA500"]IMPORTANT NOTES:[/color]

- If you have an ongoing game in 1,02b and wish to continue it, we recommend that you do not apply patch 1.03.
- The Parthian Wars expansion will require Alea Jacta Est installed on your computer, patched to AJE 1.03 to function correctly. It is not intended for players that own only BOR.
BOR owners that also have AJE will have to apply both 1.03 patches and will still be able to play all the Parthian scenarios via their BOR game, as now.

Enjoy!

Why did you not continue the model started with BOR where you can install all games independently? Not a huge deal, just wondering, I thought those were your plans for the future. I know someone who would be interested to buy Parthian wars independently, so it's a bit of a shame that this will not be possible anymore like with BOR (where I also convinced someone to buy only that). Is the Parthian war expansion "smaller" than BOR?

It's a nightmare to manage multiple games for patches, for various compatibility and version issues. So even if it was a valid commercial point to offer BOR as a standalone, it has become a serious liability for the AJE team, and they have decided to come back to the original decision to have all future product come as AJE expansions/DLC. Less commercial flexibility against better product maintenance and follow-up, we feel clients are in for the best proposal this way...

As for content, there is as much content in Parthian Wars as in BOR and the attention given to the product by the team is at least the same
