Flashpoint Campaign Red Storm has been updated to version 2.0.12 and this version brings decisive improvements to the game!

Numerous bugs affecting the Map editor, waypoints, radio traffic – and more! – have been solved, so don’t wait any further and check the entire changelog below!

You can download the update from here.

See you on the battlefield!

Version 2.0.12 Patchnotes

  • Fixed – HiHQ Teleporting in Setup Phase

While moving units around in the setup phase, the side’s HiHQ might jump (teleport) to a new location near the last moved unit. This is a random behavior and we believe it to be resolved. The best way to avoid this situation, should it still happen, is to check on the location of your HiHQ as the last move during the setup phase and move it last before proceeding on with the start of the game. You can jump to the HiHQ quickly by selecting the top listed unit in the OOB Panel.

  • Fixed – HQ Radio Traffic Spam

This was a new bug seen by some players after the 2.0.11 update. If an enemy HQ was detected via radio intercepts, the message would be spammed alerting the player multiple times in a row. We corrected this bug and you should only see the message once when each new HQ unit is detected.

  • Fixed – Map Editor Not Loading JPG file

The Map Editor would crash when loading a JPG map image if it failed to find an associated FP9 file. We have updated the editor and it will now load a JPG image and bring up the editor to build the FP9 file.

  • Fixed – Map Editor PNG File Crash

A new bug brought about by the addition of being able to load JPG image files into the Map Editor. We fixed this bug and PGN files will load as designed.

  • Fixed – Waypoint Editing Added Extra Delay

We have once again jumped into the tangled code that deals with waypoint timings with the waypoint editor and in particular, when dealing with group moves. In certain cases, making changes to set waypoint times would add additional delay into the overall delays of the waypoints. We hope this fix is now working. If you encounter this problem, again let us know. We are rewriting this code for Southern Storm with the changes to how players give orders and the delay timing changes based on HQ proximity.

  • Fixed – Wrecks causing Black Holes (Lost LOS)

In certain combinations of terrain and wrecks, line of sight (LOS) into those hexes could fail to detect enemy units even if the friendly unit was adjacent to the hex. LOS out was okay in most cases leading to units being attacked without being able to shoot back. The offending code is fixed and spotting into hexes with wrecks now works as intended.

  • Known Issues – PBEM

We are currently looking into a few reports of odd orders and timing problems during PBEM play. These bugs are random and not very repeatable. This makes troubleshooting them difficult on a good day. We decided to release this update and keep looking into the PBEM items as we work on Southern Storm. If we make any fixes, the plan is to release Hotfixes for these items.

Field of Glory 2 Developers Diary - A.I.

Tuesday, July 18, 2017

The AI for Field of Glory II has been developed by building on the knowledge gained from developing the generally praised AI for Pike and Shot and Sengoku Jidai.
 
Deployment
For non-preset scenarios, it is important that the AI can deploy its army in a sensible formation, taking account of the prevailing terrain.
Generally speaking, most ancient armies would deploy with an infantry centre in one or more lines. (Usually three for Romans, usually only one for Hellenistic armies). They would then have cavalry on both wings and perhaps in reserve, plus light troops both in the centre and on the wings.

Gettysburg: The Tide Turns is out!

Thursday, July 13, 2017

The Battle of Gettysburg, fought between the Army of the Potomac and the Army of Northern Virginia, is considered by many the turning point of the American Civil War.

Lasted three days, from July 1st to July 3rd, 1863, the battle saw many epic and tragic moments, culminating in the famous Pickett's Charge, the desperate frontal assault of the confederates against the unionist defensive lines at Cemetery Ridge.

Today, Shenandoah and Slitherine are very proud to release Gettysburg: The Tide Turns, the brilliant hex-based wargame that will make you relive all the hard tactical choices the Confederates and the Unionists had to take during these long and crucial days of fierce fighting.
