News Archive - April 2003

Yesterday [24-Apr-03] TotheGame.com posted a number of screenshots from the new AoW: Shadow Magic but as of this morning (forum time) they have been removed at the request of Take-2, the game's publisher. Forummers were however quick to report the news, and to speculate on what they thought were some things they could deduce from the shots, among them the addition of a Random Scenario Generator indicating three new races, plus images of structures and units not previously seen.
Before they were removed, Triumph Designer Lennart Sass had this to say
Itís quite funny that the news broke this way after months of silence.The speculations on the contents are of course for the most part unconfirmed, but elsewhere in the On Mods, Tools thread Lennart pointed out
Many additions have been made to the editor.
It has also been reported that at least the UK edition of the hardcopy PCGamer has promised some screenshots in the next edition. It appears then that the expected flood of official announcements are indeed forthcoming and the game is on track for release. It goes without saying of course that HeavenGames will do its best to keep you up to date when any official announcements are made.
"Insert Correct CD" on patching to 1.2
Posted by ChowGuy @ 8:56 PM
Over the last few days, we've had a few reports of people who have bought new copies of AoW2, patched them to version 1.2, then been unable to get them to work. After patching, the game stubbornly persists in asking the user to insert the original CD even though it is in the CD drive. Triumph's Josh Aow has been made aware the problem, and posted earlier today
I've looked into the issue, and it appears that a new batch of AoW2 CD's have been produced, which are incompatible with the old patch. We will let you all know a solution as soon as possible.Suspect CD's have been reported purchased locally in Windsor Ontario, and in Oregon. At this point that's about all we know. You can find the complete thread here in the AoW2 Technical Help Forum.

Well April Fools has come and gone with no word from Triumph about the new release. Still there is some news to report. TS developer keyser soze has joined the ranks of the VIP's here at AOWH. He recently introduced himself in the Just how many devs are there? thread, having this to say for himself
i am a 3d artist and I mostly work on cinematics and ingame stuff. i know you guys really want to know what we are working on, but sadly i'm not allowed to tell.OK Keyser, we'll be watching.

If you're new to AoW2, please have a look at the newest addition to our library - added today! This Frequently Asked Questions document should answer most of the new player's questions, and maybe veterans can learn a thing or two from it too. Thank you Daidalos for compiling this list!
