I wonder if you have to patch Chickamauga first to 1.04 because it never got a 2.X HPS patch.
The current 1.04 HPS patch is bigger than the JTS patch, I compared them and in the HPS patch there a 323 files while just 36 in the JTS patch.
If the JTS patch is just for bringing a 2.0 version to 2.01 we are in need to bring the HPS installation somehow to 2.0.


It is usually best to direct question concerning patches, etc to JTS support at Support@johntillersoftware.com

Although the information given here is accurate, the answer from JTS support would be more comprehensive, IMO.

Should someone wait to finish an existing game before patching from 2.0 to 2.01?

Thanks

You should first check with any opponents you may have in active games before upgrading. It is possible though to have as many versions of the game installed on your computer as you may desire.

Thanks.
If Rich sees this, the link to the Corinth readme file doesn't work.

The recent newsletter did not only point out again how to get a JTS serial for the HPS version of a CW game, and so to enable one to install the latest updates.
But it also pointed out that one can request the link "... for full new installers ...".
Here I would like to know what version each new installer would provides us with, installers on the level of the latest patch 3.0 would be very handy while the older 2.0 wouldn't save the people from installing the latest series of huge patches.

All the CWB installers are at 3.0 now except for Overland, and I think Petersburg is one .01 behind.
