Matrix ECW and updates

Thu Jul 27, 2017 1:31 pm

Hi all, :hat: my first post (after a long eclipse which required a painful process of registering on slitherine and then on AGEOD forums with quantities of captchas and ID refusals, plus a botched processing of Paypal converting Euros to Dollars while the price was in euros). My question is simple, I downloaded (very slowly) from Matrix (I hope it is the same for all AGEOD products) the ECW game and it was labelled 1.0, I managed to update from the game (it was fast), it is now 1.01. Is it the equivalent of 1.02RC or 1.03RC ? Or Is 1.02RC still Beta ? Sorry for looking stupid, I want to begin with a stable version. I am a ACW and AJE veteran, so I know the importance of updates and patches (the debate about the monstrous log somewhat frightens me) :dada: . Thank you for your interest and potential help.

The latest beta patch is from the first post on the thread 1.03RC Patch

You have to check it will install to the correct directory as it is not the full final installer package.


It seems to work OK for me albeit still with a couple of typo errors. Some people say there is an issue with automatic replacements so try changing that setting.

Thank you Taillebois, I had understood that 1.03RC was not a full install but my question is about the updated Matrix (supposedly 1.01). Is Matrix 1.01 the stable version of ECW or is there somewhere a full 1.02 (my impression is that 1.02RC is not yet stable) However I will download the 1.03RC as it may be applied to previous versions, hoping that I will understand the logic behind the changes (as I fully read the manual yesterday and found the principles sound).
I noticed there was a debate about supply and cost of replenishment, it seems the early version was harsh and almost prevented large operations which is OK with me as I am a history buff and like to have armies of the time behave correctly (and not as Panzer Divizionen), so I would have liked to know wether Matrix 1.01 is still "harsh on supply and reinforcements", I would apply further updates only if they remain with this logical approach. Thanks again for the clarifications.

Thank you Taillebois, it seems my recent answer was spoofed by the forum.... So sorry for being late. In fact the point in my question was what was the exact content of Matrix 1.01 : either
a- a former (but unknown to me) 1.01RC
b- 1.02RC
c- something else (maybe between 1.00 et 1.01RC)

In fact I would like to maintain a strict supply system (realistic for early 17th C) but avoid the bloated log syndrome (my HD space is precious)....
Thanks for your interest.
