Public beta Patch 1.01 RC9 (upd oct 31)

Tue Sep 30, 2014 5:37 pm

Dear players,

Ninth public beta patch for End all Wars can be found here:


http://www.ageod-forum.com/downloads/latest/Patch_EAW_v1.01rc9.exe

It is much advised to restart a new game with it as a lot of events won't work properly otherwise. There is a lot of improvements in several areas. Once the patch seems devoid of any major bug, it will be made official.
This public beta patch is made with an Ageod installer, so there is no auto update of any sort. If you want to use it on your Steam copy, make a copy of EAW before applying it (yes, that's possible and it works).

Orange: new to RC8
purple: new to RC9
Red: significant addition.

You must use the default forum theme (dark grey) to see the colors without having your eyes bleeding

End all Wars Updates (1.01)

Patch 1.01

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.

I notice that for medium artillery the ROF has been reduced from 8 to 3 and the ammo supply has been increased from 6 to 36. What was the thinking in reducing the ROF ?

First few bugs :)

1914 west scenario : some leftovers from the campaign scenario. Intro tooltip says that the scenario ends in 1919. Objectives in Russia still present.

Bomb fort decision is in the alignements decisions, should be in military.

Tooltip for "strong center" battle plan absent.

And the biggest one :

[ATTACH]31662[/ATTACH]

Problems with the battle result screen. Overlapping text, some missing hits infos.

These are small problems. First impression is good about the AI.

It seems there is a problem with some texts in this version compared to yesterday one (only available to beta testers). We will check that very rapidly though!

Sorry Templer, the readme has an error, there is already an entry to edit in UserInterface.opt about inoMusicVolume, please edit this one. I'll change the readme file accordingly

Templar I have found the old attack/posture buttons in the options...


[ATTACH]31690[/ATTACH]

[ATTACH]31689[/ATTACH]

Make sure you installed the patch correctly, I noticed the installer tried to install the patch to c:/games/To End All Wars when it should install to C/Games/To End All Wars

I had to manually change the small g to a capitol G... that might be why you are having trouble editing the UserInterface.opt file also...

I need a Nobel Prize to install the patch

Wed Oct 01, 2014 12:40 pm

When I installed version 1.0, the installation gave me a 'EAW' folder, instead of a 'To End All Wars' folder.
If I install the patch now, it looks like this:

[ATTACH]31692[/ATTACH]

So I copied & pasted the relevanten files in the 'EAW' directory manually.

The ROF was reduced because with the original ROF all medium art would blow through their ammo stockpiles so quickly that they'd never fire in later combat rounds, and then nobody in the world would have any ammo at all by turn 3.

I have uninstalled the game, reinstalled it, changed the name of the folder by hand, installed the patch.
I see the alternate attack/posture switch/button in the options menu now.
But the music volume does still not work! :(

I have been able to see the alternate posture button in the options since I installed the patch. I turned it on, but when I started a game, there were only the two buttons of the horrible original display.
I checked the options, and the alternate posture button was still checked.

They are not working.

Something should be done with the insanely low time of travel between the African boxes.

(I also wouldn't have removed the possibility of death for 3*. It's part of war and could also emulate suicide. Samsonov style. )
