Need some GS v4.0 final version testers

Post by Peter Stauffenberg » Tue May 30, 2017 3:55 pm

I need a few beta testers who have time to run fast to check for bugs the final GS v4.0 version before it's released to Slitherine to make an installer.

The main changes from the Public GS v4.0 version are:
* Support for 3 resolutions (1024x768, 1366x768, 1920x1080)

* True windowed support for the PC version*
Now you can e. g. run 1366x768 windowed on a monitor With higher resolution than that and move the window on Your screen as With other Windows. Before the windowed mode was fixed to the upperleft corner.

* Map changes quite a few Places like Scandinavia, Northern Germany, Russia, North Africa and the Middle East.

* Changes to the Stalin line fortifications and addition of the Mozhaysk line

* Garrison and corps units inside fortified hexes will have their NATO Counter changed to their fortified variant. This was done to easily see where the fortifications are on the map.

* Adding HQ units when a Commander is Attached to a Garrison unit. Stats are the same as Garrison units except movement allowance is increased from 2 to 4. The name of the Commander is shown on the unit With yellow text. Nice to do for Army Group Commanders you want to have behind the front lines to give morale increase to the units within range.

* Slight change to the Case White Order of Battle because of the map changes and addition of HQ units. The strength is the same. It's just the start locations.

* Supply rules are changed. Limited supply on island, North Africa and the Middle East. Now you only get supply Level 1 here unless adjacent to a supply Source. Added supply depot that provides supply Level 2. Shown as triangles on the map. Supply depots can't be railed to. Minor Power Capitals provide supply Level 4 adjacent to the Capital.

* Supply image now shows all supply Level from 0 to 5. Red circle = 0, black circle = 1, black circle With 1 white quarter = 2, Half black and white circle = 3, white circle With 1 black quarter = 4. white circle = 5. This makes it easier to see the exact supply Level in e. g. the Limited area described above.

* Iraqi rebellion is made less Extreme.

* Added wide river as terrain for some hexes on the Dnepr and Volga. Heavy vehicles can't cross. Light vehicles can only cross in Winter weather. Other units can cross any time, but movement cost is 3.

* Update gs400_settings.txt file With values for the 3 supported resolutions, windowed mode and also a chance to decide which unit stats should be shown on the counter (default is all except survivability) and also which units types will show Attached Commander names (only Garrison by default)

Send me a PM if you're a PC user. MAC users send a PM to Pk867.
We need your email address so we can forward the link and add you to the closed beta Group.

NB: This Upgrade will invalidate all existing save games with the Public GS v4.0 version. So please ensure you have separate installation trees if you want to finish existing games first.

I haven't seen this in the AARs. Can supply depots be bombed? Can you show us screenshots with supply depot locations?

The Version that some are playing With is not compatible With the latest Version we have in the beta. So to play GS v4.0 now you need to register as a beta tester. Then you get Access to the closed beta forum and the link to GS v4.0.

We hope to finish the beta soon so we can deliver the files to Slitherine for a Public Version.
