M44 Online Beta 14 Wed, 22 December 2010 15:20
Dear Memoir '44 Online Officers:

We are happy to report that we released the Beta 14 version of the software.

This version brings a number of improvements and fixes - you will find the detailed list below.

What's New?

- Introducing "Hermann": the "Johnny" AI works very nicely for Solo games, but we would like to try new ideas without breaking Johnny. So we created an "experimental" AI, nicknamed "Hermann". You can choose your preferred AI by going in the Settings screen. For the moment, Hermann is very similar to Johnny, so you can probably keep Johnny until further notice. Expect more announcements in this area in the next releases - this version is just a preparation step.

- Bonus Christmas scenario! We added a new scenario: Juno Beach. We hope you enjoy this challenging one!

- Bonus Christmas Achievement: "Arnhem Tree"! Playing the Allies or the Germans at Arnhem, hold the lone Forest hex next to Lower Rhine. Whoever holds this forest at game end wins the Arnhem Tree Achievement. This adds an interesting twist to this scenario. This Achievement is valid until January 3rd, 2011.

- Dynamic M44 signatures: you have been asking for it, you've got it! In your Days of Wonder Online account, insert the [M44_AWARDS] special tag in your signature, and your Achievement ribbons will be proudly displayed in your signature in the forums!

- The game now runs on a new server in our datacenter. We felt it was important to invest in new and fully dedicated hardware to accommodate to the traffic growth.

How to upgrade?

It is very simple, just launch the game. After you log in, it will detect the new version and offer to download it. Make sure you do so. Then follow the instructions that appear on your screen.

If you have problems, you can always go to http://www.memoir44-online.com and download the software again. Nothing will be lost, since all your profile is stored in your DoW Online account.

Improvements and bug fixes:

- Server deadlock / crash
- [Dig-in] Sand bags did not appear on the board in some cases
- [Network] Disconnection was not detected nicely on Mac and Windows
- [Upgrade] Installer was not visible in some cases
- [Robot] says "so I pass" during solo game
- [Firefight] Retreats must update the activated units
- [Retreat] Victory was not granted on a retreat on a Medal
- [War treasure] When balance reaches 0, the battle's Start button was grayed out
- [Upgrade view] button was out of screen for small screens
- [Their finest hour] rolled 7 dice while the player had only 6 cards in some cases
- [Air power] rolled 5 dice in some cases
- [AAR] No visual feed-back when opponent left the AAR screen. Now, a message appears in the chat area.
- [Achievement] Armor Specialist was never granted
- [AAR] texts were not saved in the database
- [Scenario] Toulon had a sudden death condition, but missed the Sudden Death special equipment
- [Scenario] Vassieux had a sudden death condition, but missed the Sudden Death special equipment
- [Robot] activated units that were blocked
- [Robot] Seawall was not ignored by the robot
- [Robot] should run for easy medals when it would grant victory
- [Scenario] Montélimar's Rhone medal must remain as long as an Allies unit holds the Rhone.
- Sudden Death should grant all medals, so that you don't underperform
- Other various fixes

And as always:

A big THANK YOU to everyone who play and/or send us bug reports.

Make sure you stay tuned on the Memoir '44 Online forum:
http://www.daysofwonder.com/en/thread/?frm_id=71

The whole DOW team wishes you great holidays!

Lone forest Hex??? There are two??? Do you mean the one next to the words "Lower Rhine" and if so, how would the Germans ever get to it???

The one on the Allied right would be more fun... fighting over the Christmas trees... lol

I Agree with Randwulf. Clarification is need on which Forest Hex in the Arnhem Bridge scenario is required to hold in order to get the Arnhem "Tree" Achievement.

Thanks for the quick release of this beta. Like so many others, the server lockup had me thinking it was at my end.

I notice that I don't have the basic combat training badge. Any way to get that one now?

My Son got it as soon as he played his first scenario under Beta 14 (Arnhem), so I think if you didn't get it initially (due to a bug) then you get it as soon as you play any scenario under the latest release?

Speaking of missing achievements, has the Armor Specialist bug really been fixed? I think I should have earned this achievement today, but I didn't get one.

We believe we fixed it, but this is difficult to perform manual testing. Send us a bug report we'll see what happened.

Thanks for the help.
But all I get is a solid line not a list of my (16) medals/achievements
And as soon as I posted this it worked for me - LOL

The new scenario is a great addition as is te Arnhem Tree.
Keep up the good work DoW - and have a very Happy Christmas.

Re:M44 Online Beta 14 Thu, 23 December 2010 02:30
Yesterday I played with numquam retro, and both of us like to try getting the achivement "Armor Specialist". Accroding to the description of this achivement, we must kill 2 units in a single armor overrun. And numquam retro did that, by killing 2 1-figure armor units. But in the end of the game, he got no achivement.

So, maybe that "kill 2 units in a single armor overrun" means "kill 2 full-strentgh units in a single armor overrun" ("You mean two Lucky Bastard?"said by numquam retro)? Or it is a bug not get fixed?

The "automatic" update option after logging in did not work. Sad manual downloaded the 1.4 version and installed it.That work ed. Very Happy

I received a renewd "basic combat training" batch after playing the 1st game with version 1.4 the other batches are intact.

Maybe te renewal of the batch is the result of de-installing the old version by the patch 1.4 routine?

Try reloading the page. I suspect you have an outdated version of the Javascript file that does the job. We added a little tweak that should definitively help resolve this cache issue.
