Posted: Monday, April 02, 2012 by Sean Drummy

Matrix Games, Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) and Boku Strategy Games (www.bokustrategygames.com) are excited to release the comprehensive 1.04 update for Combat Command: The Matrix Edition. The update addresses withdraw issues, the infinite assault hex loop, and makes some welcome changes.

 

The full changelog for the 1.04 update is below:

 

Changes

  • When a unit loses its fortification levels, the reason is added to the message.
  • Can now select from a list in the Scenario Editor Graphics File of what comes with the game in addition to typing in your own.
  • Number of message retained has been increased to 500. Only 200 are saved in the save game though.
  • If you add WriteLog=1 to CombatComman.ini, all messages will be written to GameLog.txt as well.
  • This is technically a debugging tool and therefore never cleans itself out. Use at your own risk as all (verbose) messages are written.

 

Bug Fixes

  • Units withdrawing even if end up equidistant to the enemy.
  • Infinite Assault Hex Loop after Reload fixed, now displays "End Phase" button instead of "Next Assault Hex" button.
  • Units can no longer advance into a hex that would cause over-stacking to occur.
  • If a unit cannot full withdraw, it will now take a hit of damage. The announcement will reflect this.
  • Corrected display of Pilot Experience and Anti-Aircraft values in Scenario dialog.
  • Contact Modifier now displays correctly in game's Scenario dialog.

 

Get the update here.The update is comprehensive and will bring all previous versions of Combat Command: The Matrix Edition to 1.04. Get more information on Combat Command: The Matrix Edition from its official product pageat the Matrix Games site.

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened. He will fight savagely.” (Dwight D. Eisenhower – Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe)

June 1944 – The Axis is retreating on all fronts. The German army does not have the strategic initiative anymore and is trying to strengthen its defensive lines in order to stop the progress of Russian forces on the Eastern Front, and to prevent any landing from the Allied forces in the West. The Atlantic Wall seems unbreakable but rumors about a possible seaborne invasion in the north of France puts the German commanders under pressure. And suddenly, on June the 6th, the Allied forces launch one of the most audacious operations of the whole war. The world’s destiny is a stake on the Normandy beaches…
