QuickFix (Version 1.04, Beta 1.03 May 12, 2019)

Sun May 12, 2019 3:34 pm

Latest QuickFix to address community items brought up on the boards. Full list of changes at bottom of this post.

These changes may not be fully compatible with existing games. Most fixes should work within current saves but some of the event changes may not operate exactly as expected.

To install, extract the EAW folder in the zip file over the EAW folder in your installation directory and accept any changes to files. When you next launch game it should indicate the Version 1.04, Beta 1.03 with date of May 2019.

List of changes:

- Fixed Hungarian 1 brigade on Lvl 2 Infantry
- Removed *Charge* from cavalry, hopefully this makes them less lethal as reported
- Reserves no longer upgrade
- Fixed PBEM Balancing events
- Changed Mediterranean Blockade events to adjust Italian and Ottoman loyalty at end of turn, and only if in the CP (please note, these effects take place at the *end* of the turn where the message is displayed, there was not another way to do this within engine design without a complete rewrite of system)
- Added an event to re-add Rasputin if he should be in Russia at the end of each turn
- Adjusted Armenian Genocide event to only affect neutral countries

Still Pending:
- Japanese units outside Pacific theater should be forced returned to Japan at end of turn, I have verified this is working in my saves, if you are experiencing issues here, please provide an example save.

Thank you sir :hat:

A few questions just to be sure.

- The patching procedure then should be:

Setup + 1.04 beta + this quick fix?


- Scens folder. I see several old and 2 new scenarios.

"3 - The Great War.scn - Shortcut.lnk"

Besides the name, the size is just 1.342 bytes? There is also an old "3 - The Great War.scn", from 2015 and 2.461.011 bytes.

"2 - The Guns of August.scn". Updated and that seems correct in size.


- GameData, models and units subfolders.

The .cached files should be included in the patch?

Also I see in the respective folders, alias.ini files, but in the game installation they are inside "\EAW\Aliases".

1) Yes, this is the correct installation order
2) You are correct, I accidentally copied scenario 3 over as a shortcut link instead of the .scn file, I have corrected it in the current download link
3) Cached file is fine, the alias files haven't changed it's okay for them to be in the models/units folders too

If I reinstalled game again. I must first install patch 1.03, then 1.04.
Correct?

1.04 was beta and never official, however was not a quick fix like this, was a comprehensive patch.

So like commented before:

Setup + 1.04 beta + quick fix.

Yesterday, I reinstalled game :
Installed game
Patch 1.04
QuickFix

After that I discovered bugs:
(1) No avatars on some Leaders
(2) No Attack / Defense Buttons

I reinstalled game again:
Installed game
Patch 1.03
Patch 1.04
QuickFix

Now everything works correctly! Who is right?

You are right evidently :)

Checked side by side both patches.

In 1.03 there is a graphic folder absent in 1.04, includes some Russian Generals portraits.

The buttons should be in the original setup, so no explanation for that.

My guess is that 1.04 is only inclusive if you have the expansion,do you have it?
