    It's pretty surprising that the patch hasn't been officialy announced here.


    The changelist is great, specially numers 1 and 2.

    There are no pathfinding fixes, though.

    When you installed the game - did you put it in the 'Default Directory' (the one the game chooses automatically) or did you put it in a custom set up?

    Also, are you in the correct profile? (Admin).

    Both of these things have caought me out before (with other games) so I always check those first.

    Default directory
    "C:\Program Files\Paradox Interactive\Achtung Panzer\starter.exe"

    Admin rights

    I have the same problem as Robin40.
    Is this patch supposed to work with the Direct2Drive version as well? Maybe its not out for others yet thats why no announcement?

    Also I don't have it installed in default location (I have f:\games\paradox etc) - please don't tell me its this stupid that it cannot let me choose where the game is or look in the registry for a key. Having games installed on the system drive is basically idiotic... also my c: is just a small boot partition since I dual-boot...grrr

    I have the same problem with the patch, so I suspect this patch version is specific to Gamersgate (I got my copy from Direct2Drive).

    Great news, thanks for the heads-up.

    It doesn't have anything to do with the install path, it's just that D2D version uses a different installer and different registry keys, so the core files updater can't detect it.

    For everyone who's waiting for the D2D version patch - you can download the regular patch, and use the extracted core files from here - http://dl.dropbox.com/u/998737/K1943_516_core_files.zip

    Stupid D2D, I'm never buying from them again ... I actually purchased it a second time from Gamersgate just to get the patch working, not that expensive anyway

    Many thanks to theReaver for unpacking the files though, very useful for a lot of ppl!
