I generally play HPS games, but recently (August '12) downloaded the Battleground series as the old Talonsoft would not run on my current PC.
I am based in the UK. The Help about shows that I have version 2.01. It worked fine for a training game with a cadet in India who had downloaded the same version.

A cadet at UMA has downloaded the game during September but he has version 2.0. He is based in the USA.

Are these the same version for different countries? If not, where can I find the patch 2.01 for him. The Matrix web site only seems to go to 1.04!

The Matrix BGCW games are patched up to 1.02 for all countries - same file.

You have to patch to 1.01 then 1.02 since I don't think 1.02 is cumulative.

Patch: http://www.matrixgames.com/products/319/downloads/John.Tiller%27s.Battleground.Civil.War

Thank you Colonel, but the help about file clearly says version 2.01, not 1.02. Can you clear this up for me? Do you suppose this is a hangover from Talonsoft?

My version of the Matrix Games is v2.01.

There were TWO updates from Matrix. Version 1.01 and v1.02, with BOTH to be applied. THESE VERSION NUMBERS do NOT show in the games. After applying V1.02, the GAME versions for all the included ACW games will be V2.01!!!
