AJE RC 1.04 patch

Hi, guys.

Here is the AJE 1.04 patch "release candidate"

This patch is, in principle, compatible with games started with official version 1.03c or with the latest public beta, although some changes will not apply to an ongoing game.

It comes in zip format. Simply unzip it anywhere you want and run the enclosed EXE file, making sure it is "pointing" to your installation folder.
This patch is not intended for the Steam version. A Steam patch will be soon released

Barring unforseen problems or last minute changes, this is going very soon to Slitherine/Matrix for "official" publishing. In other words, our work in this patch is in principle finished and closed.

Below the changelog (in yellow changes made since the beta patch):

hi! i bought the whole show (all games + all dlc) -
do i have to update 'all' standalone games, even if i can run all games+dls with AJE RC 1.04?
...or just install everything, update ONLY aje to the latest beta and leave the others as installed?

To be safe, the recomended way is to apply the latest patches for what you have (ie, AJE patch for AJE, Spartacus+Cantabrian and PAR, BOR patch for BOR and HAN patch for HAN).

This because all changes relating to other games/dlcs/extensions are included in this patch, except if new scenarios were generated. This is for example the case with HAN, in which several scenario files have changes.

Hope it's clear

The official 1.04 patch is in fact already available for the Steam version. Unfortunately no official announcement was made by Matrix marketing guys... :bonk:

It will be posted here and in Matrix forum, for sure, but we are waiting for the end of Matrix guys' season vacation...
