Supreme Commander 2 patch 1.15


• Skirmish Save/Load. Skirmishes can now be saved in game using the Menu > Save Game Function. Skirmish saves can be loaded while in a skirmish game or from the main menu under Skirmish > Load Saved Game.
Players who have been eliminated in a skirmish or multiplayer game, but have remaining allies that are all AI, will be set as an observer will full map view, and may exit normally at their discretion.
• AI Engineers and Land Scout platoons will now execute optimized pathing (performance improvement).
• A user friendly version number will now be shown at the top of replay files. Replays that do not have the matching version number of the build will generate a “failed to load” message.
• The default folder for save games, replays, screenshots and log files has been updated to \My Documents\My Games\Square Enix\Supreme Commander 2\.
• Added redundant checking on games returned by Steam in matchmaking. This check ensures that the game fits within the filters specified for Steam. Previously old data could be called when rapidly narrowing a search.
• Illuminate Bodaboom aura range now displays as a weapon range.


• Fixed condition where the first player leaving a multiplayer game would stop automated replay recording.
• Further refinement of search filtering for ranked. It was possible that someone could join a ranked game because they met the criteria when they initiated the search, but then narrowed their search and no longer met that criteria. We now check for this case and reject the connection.
• Fix for most common case of players getting in an unable to join state when closing a multiplayer game from a lobby.
• Artillery Weapon Range boost will now correctly affect Long Range Artillery, increasing its range.
• Fix for AI violation of Research build condition.
• Fix for AI not building enough research stations.
• Fix for AI not building enough factories late game.
• Fix for Naval AI not building a Naval factory at all, and for secondary condition of not building them outside its starting base location.
• Fix for uncommon case of units not doing anything when running away.
• Fix for AI Land platoons not running away.
• Fix for AI not properly utilizing the Noah Unit Cannon and Carriers for building.
• Fix for Defensive builders going to the wrong task state when they fail to find a build position.

Balance and Tuning:

• Engineers will no longer circumvent assist mitigation when ordered to assist open ground.
• AI has improved seeking/hunting capability against hidden commanders.
• AI will only build Artillery/TML in their base if they have enemy structures in range.
• AI will build more generators after they have a Mass Converter (or the research for the Cybrans).
• AI will normally only build shields in their bases when there are structures there to protect.
• AI will not build excess mass extractors.
• Illuminate ACU Energy Income Boost research decreased to +200%, was +300%. Decreasing Mass Income Boost to+250%, was +400.
• Decreased Rate of Fire on Illuminate flares by 33%.
• Added a 25 second rebuild time when the Proto-Brain is destroyed. Added a Cybran Proto-Brain crash damage of 2000.
• Increased minimum radius on Long Range Artillery to 150, was 50.

Known Issues:

• Replays cannot be created from a game that has been loaded from a Skirmish save, the UI does not currently reflect this. Although it appears to save, it does not, and the “Replay LastGame” feature will actually play the last valid replay.

Patch disponible via Steam.

how many of each type of ship you posses and clicking that type will list all the

foreign colonies.

could be potentially built at a colony, and the level of industrial building needed

size to make them easier to see. This can be turned off for screenshots or for
aesthetic purists.

• Custom Battle Feature
o One off space battles can be fought from the opening menu. Full selection of
forces and tech is allowed, together with a point system to promote balanced
games. Setups can be saved. Computer can choose forces for one or both sides.

Demigod 1.30

Gas Powered Games and Stardock Entertainment have released version 1.30 of Demigod today. Available now for all registered customers via the Impulse client, this new update includes bug fixes and gameplay improvements. Changes include:

* Abilities while moving fix: Demigod movement has been re-architected to resume attacking previous targets after using abilities. This fixes multiple problems with triggering Demigod abilities while moving.The following exceptions and modifications are by design:
* Direct targeted abilities, where it makes sense, will cause the Demigod to switch targets (like Warp Strike and Pounce). This will also set the old target variable so if they use a further ability they will go back to attacking their new target.
* Escape abilities (like Warp Scroll and Bat Swarm) will not re-engage the old target and will actually clear the old target so using another ability will not cause you to re-engage.
* Giving a move order will clear your old target. So, giving a move order and then casting Warp Area will cause DA to attack whatever he ends up closest to.
* Fix for ranged units stopping short when ordered to attack structures.
* Fix for summoned minions not starting at max health when the player has +minion health items.
* Fix for Oculus' Ball Lightning spawning in invalid locations.
* Unclean Beast's Plague ability will no longer overwrite Post Mortem.
* Wings of the Seraphim will no longer be removed when healed.
* Heart of Life effects will no longer be removed when healed.
* Fix for obscure Russian-translated map domination crash. Thank you, Ptarth, for helping to point the way on that.
* Achievement and Single Player tournament screen Demigod lists now have scrollbars.
* Oculus’ Ball Lightning will now benefit from standard minion HitPoint Buffs.

L’Etat de Wolffelden est encerclé par d’immenses cours d’eau ainsi qu’une cascade très puissante. Deux chefs aux conditions de départ différentes veulent conquérir cette terre riche et fertile. Vous trouverez une vieille ville au sommet d’un haut plateau, surplombant les rivières et offrant un Point de Victoire. Quand vous oserez pénétrer dans la forêt enchantée, le puissant loup-garou y habitant pourrait être utile pour vous mener à la victoire. Au bord de la rivière, vous trouverez l’unique port de la carte. Réfléchissez bien à votre stratégie en fonction de votre position de départ car celle-ci favorisera certaines stratégies.


Trois rivaux se défient sur le domaine de Sandbeken. Vous devrez bien réfléchir à votre stratégie, car elle sera influencée par votre position de départ. Une épaisse vapeur monte du marais brumeux et se répand dans les prairies luxuriantes environnantes. Cela pourrait bien être la clé vers le succès lorsque vous traverserez le marais ou accéderez au point de croisement au centre de la zone marécageuse.  Il y a également deux villes plus éloignées qui ont une valeur tactique et qui offrent un point de victoire. Il y a un port fluvial au nord et un marché dans les collines du sud, offrant de nombreux échanges commerciaux.
