wNews  1.02 patch for Panzer Battles Normandy - Released
Announcing the release of the 1.02 patch for Panzer Battles Normandy.
Download Link; http://www.johntillersoftware.com/updates/BattlesNormandy_102_upd.exe
 

The 1.02 version is the launching of the game as a Wargame Design Studio (WDS) release and to celebrate this we have included two new optional ‘start-up’ covers for each game. The intent is to standardize the look and feel of the Panzer Battles series going forward so that the titles are easily identifiable.
 
Normandy includes an American paratrooper and a young Hitlerjugend grenadier;

The changes are pretty extensive for Normandy.
These features include improved user interface, new terrain graphics and simplified folder structures. For Normandy, many of the scenarios have been revamped based upon player feedback and further research and the map has had an extensive review by a dedicated member of the team – Chris Haigh. Chris has added over 3,000 new labels to the map as well as correcting terrain errors and inaccuracies. Many more points of interests are named and players will really notice the difference. The full list of changes is below;


Normandy Patch 1.02 Changelog
 
Bug Fixes
  • Units could use a bridge while in travel mode to enter an obstacle and then exit the hex, rather than lose their whole movement allowance. This has been corrected and units will now lose all their movement points if they move into an obstacle hex
  • Engineer units were in some cases isolated when in a minefield - this should no longer occur
  • Engineer units will not clear a minefield in a turn that they recover from disruption
  • Adjacent engineers no longer remove isolation for units in minefields
  • Off map artillery was not firing during the defensive fire phase - this will now occur at the same frequency as on map artillery
  • Engineers that attempt to damage a bridge or AT ditch will reveal themselves if currently concealed
  • Units can no longer combine if in mismatched travel modes
  • File mismatch due to different encryption setting during PBEM - fixed
  • Campaign auto-advance on wrong password entry – fixed
 
Enhancements
  • Newly implemented:  View > Map Elevations, View > Map Coordinates, View > Map Combat Modifiers.
  • Optional Zoom to hotspot – Settings > Center Zoom on Hot Spot
  • New parameter file entry - Fatigue factor. Used for scaling fatigue accumulation. Set at 2.0 for Normandy & Kursk. Will be 3.0 for future titles to match the fatigue calculations in Panzer Campaigns. 3.0 is the more appropriate value to use, but none of the Kursk & Normandy scenarios were tested with the higher value
  • New on counter broken and disrupted markings - visible when stacked and unstacked.
  • New Getting Started documentation, including Campaign Primer and Terrain & Combat tables
  • Updated General Help guide with a revised layout and additional information.
  • Updated User guide with a revised layout and additional information. All manuals are a work in progress and will continue to be rationalised over time.
 
Order of Battle
  • Added additional fixed German guns as pre research by Chris Haigh
  • Changed the organisational structure of the German Coastal guns (Kustenartillerie) to allow Corps Attachment
 
Graphics Changes
  • Small terrain features as provided in Patch 1.01 has become the new default version
  • New breakwater graphics
  • New Cover art. Various versions available in the \Screen directory
 
Map Changes
  • Map has been extensively updated by Chris Haigh. Nearly 3,000 new names added taking the total to over 4,400
  • Small font is now the default due to the addition of named locations
  • Height levels and other natural features such as cliffs have been adjusted
  • Significant changes to map features and heights. For example, Omaha beach has been extensively remodelled
  • Alternate small map graphics included   
 
User Interface Changes
  • New Shortcut keys
  • New Toolbar Icons in traditional and standard configuration. Small, Medium and Large versions also available for each.
  • File/folder reorganization, with creation of the following new folders:  Data (.oob & .pdt files), Logs (.log files), Manuals (.pdf files), Saves (.bt? files), Scenarios (.scn, .map files etc.), Screens (various game .bmp files).
  • New logging system (with various .log files in the new Logs folder), to assist in game testing, and identifying and fixing bugs.
 
Scenario Updates
  • New scenario; #0606_08b_ Omaha - "Into The Jaws Of Death" by Chris Haigh Based off Rick Bancroft’s #0606_08;
    • All VP hexs remain the same
    • All supply sources remain the same, except for the source that was in 57,27 - which is  moved to 55,28
    • Artillery placement on and off board is not changed except that Werfergerat-Abt 352 is moved to a stacked position just north of St-Laurant-sur-Mer (I have archive air photos of them placed in hand dug pits in the fields here - which clearly identifies the position)
    • Vierville D-1 sector:-
      • WN 72 (PILLBOX) and Inf moved to the shoreline at the bottom of the D1 exit.
      • New AT ditch (was actually a wall) to the south of WN 72 blocking vehicular access to the high ground south of there.
      • WN 73 (BUNKER) re-named in the OOB as WN74 but the deployment is correct
      • Obstacle and mine density increased.
      • WN72 unit split with WN72 becoming a unit comprising 1x88mm AT + 1x50mmAT, and a new unit WN73 created in the OOB comprising 1x75mmAT and placed in the bunker above the bluff at 32,15
      • 9/III/Gren-Regt 726 is slightly redeployed spread on the clifftop, but with the new cliffs preventing US exit except east of "Fortified House" (not actually fortified but attacked by infiltrating Rangers and B Co.)
      • WN 72 AT guns can now fire the length of the seafront due to the change from Villages to Scattered settlements on the seafront - in reality they were a partial row of seafront villas, many demolished by the Germans.
      • The low wall is moved south to represent the small sloping seawall and shingle bank along this part of the beach then.
    • Les Moulins D-3 sector:-
      • Historical AT ditch added to protect the beach exit, and a second ditch across the road above Les Moulins village.
      • Mine density increased
      • WN69 moved to 40,22 and "bunker" placed - No other changes to unit deployment or fortifications.
    • "Le Ruquet" E-1 sector:-
      • New historical AT ditch added protecting beach exit
      • Mine density increased
      • Due to the changes in contours here (made as part of the Main Map changes just south of the exit), there is now a dead spot in 49,23 giving historical defilade from the fire from WN 62 (Gockel et al) - which on the day allowed for infiltration up onto the plateau (where the US cemetary is now (49,25)) - WN 62 & WN 64 were later taken from the rear/flank following this.
    • Colleville/Le Cavey E-3 sector and La Revoloution F-1 sector:-
      • Historical AT ditch added to protect the E-3 exit (This one was massive and is still partially visible on Google Earth !)
      • Mines increased.
      • The beach has been increased in width and the terrain lowered by one hex in 53,25, with additional dunes added north for cover.
      • WN 61 has been moved SE one hex to 54,25.
      • WN 62 and its covering MG unit have each been moved one hex east (the MG is still on the high ground due to the changed increased height), and the Inf guns of WN 62 have been moved SW one hex.
      • The MG's in "Le Cavey" has been moved one hex SE
    • WN 60 was too strong previously (this was the first WN taken on Omaha on D-Day - out flanked to the east, and assaulted from the rear early in the day) so ...
    • On the Main Map the Cliffs have been replaced with Escarpments adjacent to 58,26 to allow this infiltration, and the WN60 garrison reduced to 18 MG (from 36) - the other 18 MG being relocated to 60,27 ...... this has allowed WN58/59 (Pluskat) to be relocated to its more correct position in 65,28 - above and west of Les Bateaux.

Normandy Patch 1.00 Changelog

Enhancements
  • Hard Fire modifier added to the PDT to allow scaling of combat results
  • Elevation modifier in the PDT additionally has an inverse relationship when a unit fires at a unit at a lower elevation. Please note this modifier is per elevation differential.
  • Ability to highlight reconnaissance units. Menu View\Highlight\Recon units
  • Revised Fog of War. The first X strength of an enemy unit’s strength is shown if they are in a clear hex (or hex with + defensive value such as beach, shallow or water). Showing the first X means single value units would show their exact strength, double digit; #X and triple digit; #XX. The rationale is at this scale unit numbers would be able to be approximated in hexes without cover. Fortifications (IP, Trench, Bunker, Pillbox) are considered cover for the purposes of this rule.
 
Appendix – Changing Terrain Graphics
 
New terrain graphics have been provided with this patch. Two new directories are now present under the ‘MAP’ directory. They are ‘Terrain - Original’ and ‘Terrain - Small’. Small contains the new terrain graphics while Terrain-Original contains the originally released game graphics.
There are three different terrain graphics;
  • Base terrain graphics; these are used for the base hex graphic with differentiation for elevations and ground condition. There are 12 files in all with Normal, Soft, Mud and Snow included with three zoom levels of 100, 50 & 25.
  • Hex Features; these files include in hex features such as villages, towns, woods, fields etc. Items that are within a hex are usually within this file. There are 3 files in total covering the three zoom levels.
  • Hex Sides; these files include all graphics that impact hex sides such as streams, rivers, bridges, cliffs etc. There are 3 files in total covering the three zoom levels.
  • Symbols; these files include all graphics that modify hexes or are game markers such as fortifications, air strikes, supply sources, arrows etc. There are 3 files in total covering the three zoom levels.
  • Primary; these files are darkened primary roads as compared to the original release for better visibility at lower elevations. There are 3 files in total covering the three zoom levels.
 
This patch will automatically replace the originally released graphics. If you would like to restore to the originally released graphics just copy the contents of ‘Terrain-Original’ back into your Map directory. This can be done selectively if only certain elements are to be changed. For example a player who wanted the original fortifications would have to restore only the Symbols files - the remainder of the new terrain would remain in place.

RE: 1.02 patch for Panzer Battles Normandy - Released
I asked this in another post to David.

Is it safe to update if I have ongoing battles with an opponent via pbem?

Should we both update before sending and receiving next turn or does it matter.

Sorry for asking again........just trying to be safe.

Clint

RE: 1.02 patch for Panzer Battles Normandy - Released
Nice, i dont expect it until next week... if all works fine and find them today was a surprise.

I notice a strange thing with the new counters, when i use the biggest icons if i maximize the window using the buttom to do it the icons dont adapt to the size of the windown, if a start with a minimize windown and i expand it manually do it.

Using the buttom to have full screen you can see how cut in in the + buttom the other in the right are not present looks like is unable to place the extra icons in a 3rd line

[Image: UO0044.jpg]

If i start with a minimize windown and expand it manually they icons in the bar adapt to the size of the windown... here same size windown that previous image BUT manually maximize create a 3rd line of icons.

With medium size no problem.

RE: 1.02 patch for Panzer Battles Normandy - Released
Excellent - thanks for all the efforts involved in this. There's a lot of really good stuff in this update.

I do have a question though - why change a lot of the shortcuts from needing single keys to needing ctrl+key?
This is MUCH more cumbersome. A lot of shortcuts now need two hands or an awkward stretch. Where as previously I could hit the keys very quickly without hardly needing to glance down at the keyboard.

Are the keys user changeable? If not can we have the option of the old keys back?

Thanks again.

What is your screen resolution?

So you are saying that when the game window is maximized, the toolbar icons extend off the right edge of the window and don't wrap around properly?

On our test systems here, we don't at all see that problem.

Maybe that's one reason why we offer a wide variety of toolbars, and toolbar sizes.  Whatever works.

RE: 1.02 patch for Panzer Battles Normandy - Released
Running Windows 10, the patch did not unzip to the default game folder, on checking I discovered it had created another folder with the same name.
I had to select browse and navigate to the correct destination before unzipping.
All is now well but a little bit miffed as this has never ever happened before, will sleep on it and view the goodies tomorrow.

Oh, on my first attempt at installing the patch it £$%&+& up the game, after several attempts I lost the plot and uninstalled, then reinstalled the game followed with Patch 1.01 checked OK, then Patch 1.02 and that was when the shit hit the fan as again the game was screwed.

Kursk update is a no no until I fully check everything is OK.

tech question pls, I recently upgraded pc and have been holding off reinstalling the games till the new patches were released.  Are the new patches comprehensive and contain previously released patch material or should I patch 1.01 then the new patch?

thanks!

The patch is comprehensive. It can be run over a 1.0 or 1.01 install. Just Ensure you browse to your install directory.

I had to select browse and navigate to the correct destination before unzipping.
All is now well but a little bit miffed as this has never ever happened before, will sleep on it and view the goodies tomorrow.

Oh, on my first attempt at installing the patch it £$%&+& up the game, after several attempts I lost the plot and uninstalled, then reinstalled the game followed with Patch 1.01 checked OK, then Patch 1.02 and that was when the shit hit the fan as again the game was screwed.

Kursk update is a no no until I fully check everything is OK.

Lowlander,

Sorry you're having issues.

Firstly, I created the patch under Windows 10 and have installed no issue on numerous machines.

Secondly, there is no need to patch with 1.01 and then 1.02. The patch includes both updates.

Thirdly there is a pop up before you start the unzip process that says it will unzip to the default install directory (c:\John Tiller Software\Battles of Normandy) unless you browse to your install directory if it's different. I don't believe this process is different to any prior Tiller patch, but am happy to be corrected.

Let us know how you go and I can provide further assistance but browsing to your installation directory before unzipping should fix any issues.
