Gettysburg: The Tide Turns PC Hotfix v1.02

Post by HybridSpyda » Fri Jul 14, 2017 10:07 pm

Hi Everyone!

A Hotfix is now available which resolves a few gameplay and multiplayer issues that have been reported.

Go and grab it from the Members Area, or directly from here.
Unzip and replace all the files contained in the zip file with the existing files located in your Gattysburg: The Tide Turns installation folder.

Happy Gaming!

It fixes the AI freeze for some cases (I'm not 100% sure yet I've covered them all)
It fixes a PBEM issue where the game would ping the server too often
It has more feedback messages in pbem lobby

I applied the hotfix v1.02. No problems with game freeze so far. However, I am into Day 2 and cannot seem to do anything with Union XII Corps, either bringing back units or moving units on the map. This was for Turn 12 and again on Turn 13. I'm attaching some files; not sure which is the game save. It might be helpful to name the game save files better. Hope this helps.

Quick update to my previous post. XII corps seems OK in Turn 14. Not sure what the issue was on Turns 12 and 13, not being able to select units for move or placement.

In my steamapps\common\Gettysburg the Tide Turns\ folder I found Gettysburg ttt.exe, but not the Gettysburg.exe that is included in the zip file. Am I to rename Gettysburg.exe to Gettysburg ttt.exe and overlay, or have both files in the folder? How will the launcher know which of these to run? I don't want to replace any other files until I learn the answer to this.

Hi Theopolis,

This update is for the Slitherine standalone version only, the Steam version should get updated with its own files automatically. Do not try to manually update the Steam version as this would cause adverse effects to happen with your game, to the point that it would be unplayable.

Sorry for the confusion,
Happy Gaming!

I have played through the first 13 turns of the campaign without any freeze problems, so far so good... 8)

Enjoy playing this so much that I forgot to eat and is starting to feel a bit fatigued, i.e. time for food break. :)

I keep getting an error message for the first file to be replaced ie the exec when I attempt to unzip. Error message is that it can't create the exec file and admistrative privileges may be required. I would note that I installed the game normally (not via adminstrator) and that my install is a Slitherine one not Steam. In view of this I haven't tried to unzip any of the other files.

The hotfix is not comprehensive. Still getting the freeze.
I was in turn 14, I think, of campaign game with AI playing USA and attacking, wins the attack and has the option to advance after combat but then freezes with no further action.
Cannot save the game at that point as screen edit says can only save game during your own movement phase.

I can't even open the patch. Get error message. Put in Matrix help desk ticket with screenshot of error message. But really, glad I only spent $9.99 on game and not $29.99. Game remains unplayable with freezes. Rather dissapointing.

Don't need to save manually. Autosave will have the exact moment of the freeze. Send me the autosave file and I'll look at it.

The autosave is no longer there. I tried to replay it and after changing moves and adjusting positions a couple times it still kept freezing after combat so I deleted the file.

Hi Ironclad,

Please ensure that you unzip the files outside of your program files folder before copying them to your installed location.
This is an extra precaution that Windows has in place to stop malicious content being unpackaged directly without your knowledge.

Hopefully this helps, but please let us know if this does not resolve your issue.

Happy Gaming!

This Hot Fix will not install. I unzip and copy and put directly into the install folder. Get Error massage. Also, where on the GUI does the game show the version we have installed? Sorry, I'm one of those guys that plays War Games a doesn't really know how to fix them.Looking for a patch that is a little more user friendly.

I bought the game the first day from Matrix webpage, downloaded the zip-file, placed it inside the game folder, extracted it without any problem, played version 1.02

I agree that it really ought to be information about game version in the game menu system (no idea if it exist or not as I am not playing now).

Does this hotfix apply to games downloaded after the 14th?

Yes, but only for the version downloaded through the Slitherine website.
Steam version updates automatically.
