Back to News Listing Combat Command: The Matrix Edition is Updated

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.
