Back to News Listing Tin Soldiers: Julius Caesar Updated to v1.11

Posted: Saturday, June 25, 2005 by Matrix Support

Type: Update

Crash Fix and Backwards Compatibility Upgrade

Matrix Games is pleased to announce that Koios Works’ (www.koiosworks.com) latest title in the Tin Soldiers series, Julius Caesar has been updated to version 1.11.

This incremental update fixes a crash bug involving retreating armies and makes the game backwards compatible with any minor revisions.  This means players with version 1.11 can play multiplayer against people who have version 1.10.  It does not include the ability for v1.11 players to play against v1.00 owners and requires that v1.10 already be installed before updating.  All Tin Soldiers: Julius Caesar updates can be downloaded from the Matrix Games website at www.matrixgames.com.

 

Tin Soldiers:  Julius Caesar brings a completely new 3D engine into the battle, allowing users to zoom in, out, and rotate the map for a better view of the battlefield.  The artwork overhaul features over 100 different replicas of hand-painted miniatures, including the fearsome legions of Caesar himself.  On the inside of the game the AI has been overhauled as well to support a variety of battle formations while the legions of Caesar have been expanded from the normal block of four units to a more powerful block of six.  This allows you to replicate the power and strength the Roman legions possessed.

 

The campaign mode features two distinct campaigns that no longer occur in linear order.  You must defeat the Gaelic campaign and the final showdown against the combined forces of Gaul at Alesia and then proceed to the Roman civil war, where you will conquer Rome itself.  By keeping many of the aspects that made Tin Soldiers:  Alexander the Great popular and improving it in many areas; Tin Soldiers:  Julius Caesar will be appealing to both existing fans and newcomers alike.

So long as the opposing forces are at the outset approximately equal in numbers and moral and there are no flanks to turn, a long struggle for supremacy is inevitable” (General Sir Douglas Haig - British commander)

Praised for its historical accuracy and its capacity to properly cover a huge conflict that involved thousands of men and units, Ageod’s WW1 wargame, To End All Wars, amazed history buffs last summer. However, the huge scale of the Grand Campaign was demanding a lot of time and a deep involvement from the players. So the developers went back to the WW1 battlefields and selected a list of smaller scenarios able to

“But the cure for most obstacles is, Be Decisive” (George Weinberg – American Psychologist)

1939-1940: The war machine is released. Plans for the invasion of Poland and Western countries have been carefully prepared by the German commanders. But the Wehrmacht effectiveness is still not proved and its opponents have some serious military assets. Speed and surprise are key success factors that armchair generals will have to master to seize Warsaw, Paris, and London … or the German troops will be sent packing back to Berlin!
