---> Patch 1.01 link, Readme and discussions <---

Mon Nov 17, 2014 3:16 pm

Dear players,

Surtur, already published here some nice informations about the first patch to End all Wars
http://www.ageod-forum.com/showthread.php?38221-To-End-All-Wars-gets-its-first-major-patch!&p=335870#post335870

To re-iterate, you can patch the game with the auto-updater or with a direct link:
ftp://ftp.matrixgames.com/pub/ToEndAllWars/ToEndAllWars-UpdateComp-v101.zip

The first patch is quite massive and is improving the game a lot. The readme in the patch is slightly trailing behind, but the actual content is fully up to date, so do not worry. The official patch is equivalent to the latest release candidate (RC9), in case you wonder. In red the most important entries, in yellow the additions of RC9, for people who followed the public beta patch version after version.

I suggest to use the default forum theme, with dark gray, or your eyes might bleed with the colors used otherwise!
This thread will be stickied in a few days, for now while it is active, it is better to keep it unsticked as it will stay on top and the focus of your comments, no doubts :neener:

stacks don't retreat from regions not having an offensive posture stack
Stack in retreat or doing MTSG can't cross blockaded river or pass through 'front' because of ZOC.

Not right now. My belief is that an active non-stickied thread is more visible than a sticky one. If this thread sinks in the forum, I'll sticky it.

Just a question about v1.01 - should there be an option for 'traffic' in the options menu, or that a beta only release? Mine shows this, but someone whom I'm playing PBEM with doesn't, even though he say's he's got v1.01 installed though.

Just wanted to mention that with this patch, waiting time between turns fell from 10-11 minutes to 6-7 minutes (with give AI more time checked). It is one full hour won for one year of gameplay.

If other improvements come with next patch, it will become very interesting !

There was indeed some improvements in hosting time. I might have forgot about that I was not too sure it affected EAW as much as the other game we are developing ;)

Traffic rule: This is still in development, it works, but is affecting cohesion not movement rate. I'm not too sure it does not appear in 1.01 though.

Does everyone have the 'traffic' option since 1.01?? I don't see it anywhere, but I updated manually from the AGEOD site. My opponent in our PBEM I believe updated through Steam and he has a 'traffic' option on the menu... is there a difference in 1.01 versions (Steam vs. non-Steam)?

Glad the posture buttons are back, perhaps they will re-appear in CW2 soon too.

I believe that it impacts on movement efficiency but I (we all) need some additional detail from the developer on this. I currently have it set to the lowest setting and have seen messages referring to it, particularly Serbian troop movements.

It brings in the effect of traffic jams when moving large numbers of troops through
a region. It reduces their coherency.

Something strange about the music, fine and loud during load but then drops to inaudible even though it says it is playing tracks.

Ah, but the subject of the next game is rather known I believe. It was leaked back in the HOW convention this summer.

It was a well contained leak... I don't think most of us have heard it. Let me guess anyway: NAPOLEON'S CAMPAIGNS 2 ???!!! :w00t:

Watched with horror as a soundtrack appeared to block my liberation of Brussells, fortunately the new patch kicked in, much to the BEF's good fortune and it dispersed one turn later. Phew!

I have to say, I like the elegance and simplicity of the diplomatic system in EAW. I think it could accommodate the Napoleonic era quite well. The players have a set of choices but there is a random element and also some events and player initiatives that come at a cost.
