Video con l'ultima patch di Histwar Les Grognards

Ho fatto un breve video con l'ultima patch di Histwar; come potete vedere la grafica è migliorata parecchio, ma c'è uno sfasamento tra la mappa 2d e quella 3d (almeno sulla mappa di Eylau). Per il resto non ci sono sostanziali novità nel gameplay, a parte, come già dicevo, la possibilità di feedback per tre categorie di ordini, ma che è un sostanziale problema una volta cominciato lo scontro, perchè piovono a raffica.

Scourge of War nuova patch impressioni

Prima di tutto posso finalmente hostare con fastweb, questo su tutto già rende magnifica la patch, punto.

Aggiungiamo c'è il replay, anche se non del tipo che uno si aspetta, infatti sulla mappa 3D vediamo un replay del tipo mappa 2D, per chi non ha capito posto questo filmato fatto da un utente


A prima vista ti lascia l'amaro in bocca, ma in realtà alla fine con battaglia da un'ora e passa è assolutamente inutile vedere i singoli scontri tra le unità, è più importante vedere il flusso delle unità sulla mappa per capire la dinamica del movimento.

Ho avuto qualche problema a riattivare Pipe Creek e Antietam con la nuova patch, ma ho mastruzzato con i registri ed adesso li vedo.

Insomma un grande passo in avanti per il gioco.

Vi ricordo che abbiamo un piccolo gruppo di giocatori italiani, se siete interessati a giocare con noi contattatemi qui, sul forum Legio o su Strategy Games Italia.

Rilasciata la patch 1.5 per Scourge of War

Notizia ufficiale sul sito Matrix:

"
Fight some of the toughest and most famous battles of the American Civil War

Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com), Slitherine (www.slitherine.com), and NorbSoftDev (www.norbsoftdev.net) are proud to announce the release of the American Civil War strategy game Scourge of War: Gettysburg and its two expansions Pipe Creek and Antietam. The release of Scourge of War comes days after the wonderful news of NorbSoftDev signing an exclusive distributing deal with Slitherine and Matrix Games, bringing the popular American Civil War game series to a larger audience.

Scourge of War: Gettysburg and its expansions are getting outstanding support from Matrix Games and Slitherine in the form of a new routing server to make multiplayer a seamless experience. A release day update is also available for all previous owners of Scourge of War: Gettysburg (and expansions) to bring their version up to date with the new Matrix/Slitherine release. This new version includes a multitude of improvements and fixes, such as the new replay system, enhanced water detail, and more. The update also removes the existing DRM, with players no longer needing an active internet connection to activate the game. The update is comprehensive and will bring all versions of Scourge of War: Gettysburg and its expansions to version 1.50. Download the update by going to the Scourge of War: Gettysburg download page.

In Scourge of War: Gettysburg, you are in command as Union and Confederate forces meet in a rendezvous with history at the town of Gettysburg in July of 1863. Every engagement at Gettysburg has been meticulously researched and recreated, along with multiple “what if” scenarios to keep players on their toes.

Scourge of War: Pipe Creek puts the player in charge of the Union or Confederate forces in an alternate history version of the Gettysburg campaign. The Pipe Creek Line was a selected battle position for the Union’s Army of the Potomac as part of a circular assignment of the army’s corps. Historically, this plan was superseded by events during the Gettysburg Campaign, but now players will be able to experience what would have happened if the Pipe Creek Line plan was executed.

In Scourge of War: Antietam, players will take command of the Union or Confederate forces during the battles of Antietam and South Mountain in September of 1862. Antietam became known as the first major battle to take place on Union soil and the single bloodiest day of battle in American history. Incredible heroism and sacrifice on both sides made this one of the hardest fought battles in the entire American Civil War and also gave President Abraham Lincoln the opportunity he sought for the Emancipation Proclamation.

Scourge of War: Gettysburg and its expansions feature incredibly detailed maps and authentic maps, with accurately modeled weapons, units, artillery, historical orders of battle, realistic weather and more to create a genuine experience of commanding either Union or Confederate troops on the battlefield. Players can take the fight online in cooperative play against the AI or against other human opponents, including fog and friction of war elements such as courier orders, with the possibility of supporting up to 32 players in one battle!

For more information on Scourge of War: Gettysburg and its expansions, visit the official product page on the Matrix Games or Slitherine website.

Full Changelog of v1.50 Below:

New Features

GFX_Obj_Stealth has been added to the gfx.csv to make possible invisible objectives in
scenario design.

Water has been enhanced in the game maps.

A new Replay system is now available. Players have the option to save Replay after ending
each battle. The Replays are available from the Single Player menu.

Couriers in MultiPlayer now find the quickest route to their destination, as they do in Single
Player. In the past, couriers in MultiPlayer would always use roads.

Saved games now include all mods in use instead of forcing to player to have to manually
enable each mod that was used.

In MultiPlayer, the enemy side is now hidden on the "Player Status" screen. This is the screen
invoked by clicking on the the player's star in the upper right of the MultiPlayer gamescreen.

Cavalry can now charge unlimbered artillery automatically when they get within a certain
distance.

Bug fixes

A bug that made the in-game Options Help screen inaccessible has been fixed.

Fatigue bonuses now work correctly when they are awarded by objectives.

A bug that caused Sandbox battles to end extremely early because a Fail grade was reached has
been fixed. The game will no longer check for a Fail grade until after a half hour, and the
default Fail grades have been greatly increased.

Clicking the Charge button repeatedly no longer causes unrealistic casualties.

A bug that caused players to see courier messages sent by teammates in MP has been fixed.

A bug that caused an incorrect order of animation for artillery guns has been fixed.

A bug in GB22 which prevented players who earned a Major Victory from being promoted has
been fixed.

some graphics cards.

A bug that caused regiments to engage in melee even after being ordered to retreat has been
fixed.

A bug that prevented objectives in the map CSV files with coordinates below 16394 and above
245661 from showing up in Sandbox games has been fixed.

A bug that caused all forces to start on top of each other in Sandbox when a new patch was
installed and a default Battle Type was not selected has been fixed.

all text in the color is now correctly rendered in the Pen color. This should allow
for modding really light counters and using black pen on top of them. If none of
the rgb values of the Pen is above 128 then the text shadow is also dropped.

Message text with Intelligence card reply improved and correct strategic position
of enemy now given. (R)

Renamed reinf group light tanks to light-med tanks to take away some confusion.
So PzIIs, PzIIIs, Pz38s, Pz35s are reinfgroup ‘light-med’ and PzIVs are reinfgroup
‘medium’.

Moved Hungarian Corps to Black Sea Coast in Case Blue Campaign Scenarios.

Also moved a Security division in Uranus to the Black Sea Coast.

Made cargoships and barges weaker and thus more easily destroyed (50% less
hitpoints) as well as reducing the transport capacity of cargoships from 4 to 3
weight points per ship.

Message text with Intelligence card reply improved and correct strategic position
of enemy now given.

Now game doesn’t number newly created Soviet Engineer groups, it’s more
consistent.

Azov is now a port so Rostov can be kept in supply when encircled, in all
scenarios.

AA / Flak now have higher symbol value so it shows on counter in silhouette mod.

14th Panzer missing from Stalingrad 6th Army, added it to both Uranus scenarios.

16th Motorized added to Case Blue campaign scenarios but not to Voronezh
scenario.

Reduced number of trucks, halftracks and tanks in (to-be pocket of) Stalingrad in
Op. Uranus. (only about 100 German tanks or less left now )

Little bigger font used in combat results.

Hotkey for HQ Power (Key-5) and Air/Art Range (Key-6) added.

Super Higher resolution now supported, bug with 2600 pixel width should be
fixed.

Already registered people with Slitherine (due to playing PBEM++ with another
game) now have option to choose ‘already registered’ button and use the regular
login in the next screen.

When you switch a unit and play the speed card again it will have less effect.

New mod file lines can be added. After the buttons have all been defined there is
now an optional line that takes the number of graphicfile string replacements. For
each number add a line below. With two arguments: “stringtobereplaced,”
”stringtoreplacewith.” This functionality makes it easy to make graphic mods that
don’t overwrite existing graphics. I will give some more info on this separately.

Esempio di difesa con l'artiglieria in Operation Star


In Achtung Panzer l'uso dell'artiglieria può essere di grande aiuto se ben piazzata ed usata la momento giusto. Ecco qua due video; nel primo la vedete usare contro truppe meccanizzate, senza il suo intervento sarei stato spacciato. Nel secondo la vedete in azione contro un Tiger a cui rompe un cingolo.

Nel frattempo abbiamo un primo elenco delle DLC programmate per APOS nei prossimi mesi:

3rd Sinyavino 1942
Summer in south-east Ukraine in 1943
Taranovka Summer 1943
1st and 2nd Sinyavino 1941
Nomongan 1939
POC42

Non è ben chiaro che scenario sia POC42. Una nuova patch dovrebbe uscire ad ottobre.

Video della nuova patch di Steel Armor Blaze of War

Ecco un nuovo video che mostra alcune delle nuove features della prossima patch di Steeel Armor Blaze of War. Steel Armor usa lo stesso engine di Achtung Panzer quindi è prevedibile che verrà upgradato con la nuova interfaccia già in uso per quest'ultimo; se non ho capito male però dato che il gioco originariamente   era stato sviluppato per un terzo ci sono questioni di diritti che ne hanno rallentato lo sviluppo.

Aggiornamento di JMM sui lavori in corso per Histwar

Ieri JMM ha dato un piccolo aggiornamento sui lavori in corso su Histwar Les Grognards: sta lavorando ancora sul miglioramento grafico e la scala 1 a 10 sarà abilita per fare posto ad un minimo di 1 a 6. Inoltre il PBEM avrà bisogno di meno scambi di mail per turno. Ovviamente ci sono altre modifiche in corso ma non ha dato aggiornamenti su quelle.
