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

Posted: Monday, April 02, 2012 by Sean Drummy

Type: News

 

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.

Thursday, October 16, 2014

"Not only strike while the iron is hot, but make it hot by striking.” (Oliver Cromwell – English military and political leader)

In the age of Pike and Shot, mighty struggles erupted across Europe for religious, political or dynastic causes. The greatest powers of that period were regularly involved in conflicts and struggles to increase their dominance over the continent. Some countries have also to deal with inner tensions and are torn apart between factions. War is in the air. But war has changed.
