So, what all changes made in V10? over V9.5? I mean major changes?

Eagerly awaiting V10. Hope the base game incorporates it and releases the GOLD Version or something.

And here it is (download button is arrow in top right corner):

Update from V9.51 to V10 (114 MB):
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Gnbpy ... 7q7eb7H9hW

Full mod including V10 in case you are new to the mod or experience problems with the update (390 MB):
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1NqAeW ... KzAmnuBhas

Changes:
- 22 new end game screens with victory points and rank (this was a heck of a work to implement!)
- for singleplayer Entente vs CP AI: option to choose the German war plan before starting a game: Schlieffen, Aufmarsch Ost, Rupprecht or historical modified Schlieffen.
Image
- "difficulty setting" options removed , replaced by war plan choice options
- "Austrian Defense Plans" event will neutralize danger of any "Russian surprise attack". Even if Serbia surrenders to Austrian ultimatum!
- Schlieffen plan/Austrian Defense plan will mutually exclude each other.
- new German troop setup in East Prussia, added Gumbinnen town just for the heck of it.
Image
- German AI units in East Prussia will be forced to stand and fight.
- German city of Posen now a fortress
- raised Russian war effort per turn before onset of Russian Supply Crisis
- onset of Russian Supply Crisis somewhat delayed
- AI front weight reworked but as of now only partially tested
- fixed Entente AI mass redeployment from France to Italy once Italy joined Entente
- "Muddy weather" events fixed
- "Ammo factory explosion" event now can happen as soon as "Women workforce" events got Chosen/randomly triggered
- unless Entente chooses "Guarantee Belgium Neutrality" Britain will declare war on CP on turn 4 rather than turn 3.
- choosing "British Royal Navy Review" will raise British naval transport capacity from 2 to 3 and unlock Admiral Fisher
. zeppelins PP cost now 20 (was 25)
- fighter plane range down to 4 (was 5)
- Russian commanders will unlock sooner depending on German advance in the east
- German commanders will unlock (sooner) when capturing Russian cities in "Aufmarch Ost" scenario
- lots of critical bugfixes! V9.51 was partially defunct leading to very low chances for "Anzac arrives in Egypt", "Abadan Oilfields" and "Gallipoli Campaign" to happen

I hope you enjoy this final version of the mod.
Bugfixes etc. will still be addressed of course.

Cheers! :)

Downloaded, installed, and plays fine. (The update, not the full mod, which is blocked by a Google Drive login.)

Thanks!

@Robotron

The Balance in East Prussia and the Sinai is much better due to the upgradation from corpses to Armies.
At times the game stalls or breaks down, will send the save. Upon re-loading it is fine.
The British are truly powerful with the new mod, Serbia collapsed and British had 4 armies + Cavalry + Corpses in Salonika. That's something big.
Germany cruises through Belgium but is stopped before Paris due to British, again good.
Some new weird convoy appeared via Iceland!

@shri: instead of the save better provide the logfile called "ctgw.log" which usually to be found in your Documents folder, so look in "My Documents\My Games\Commander The Great War".

NOTE: This ctgw.log is overwritten every time you start the game. Please make a copy of ctgw.log immediately after any crash/bug you want to report before reloading the game.

Put the ctgw.log and/or autosave.endturn files into a .zip or .rar archive and attach them to your post using the forum's "upload attachment" feature in the bottom left corner of the reply box (click on full editor and preview).

Alternatively you can just copy/paste and post the last few lines of the "error" message at the end of the ctgw.log (open it with any text editor like WordPad), usually this holds enough information to fix a bug.

Attached to this post is a tiny script fix for user bslinky and other users (if any) that have encountered the same bug so they can continue their game.

The fix must be applied just like a normal update: copy the "data" folder from the archive into the game's main folder and overwrite the old files when asked.

The complete update will follow later and will not allow to continue an ongoing campaign.

Thanks for reporting and providing the logfile. Fortunately the cause of the crash was a simple typo. Find the script fix in the attached zip-archive.

The fix must be applied just like a normal update: copy the "data" folder from the archive into the game's main folder and overwrite the old files when asked.

Thanks Argentum. This time the bitrate of one of the sound files was incompatible.

The attached archive will fix this issue and all other reported bugs.

Fixed. Although I could have sworn I fixed that before. Maybe I'm getting old. :P

But anyway, thanks again for reporting, at least it means some people are still playing the mod. :D

See attached zip file.
