UPDATE [14th February 2018]
Please install the 1.05.1 hot-fix on top of your 1.05 installation to address 2 issues introduced by this patch.
Download link and more details can be found in the Darkest Hour Patch 1.05.1 (hot-fix release) thread.



Hello everyone,

Please accept our apologies for the long patch delay and thank you for your patience.

Finally we're happy to present you the 5th patch for Darkest Hour!

You can read more on it in the Development Diary.

Now to the patch itself! :)


General notes
1. Saved games from 1.0, 1.01, 1.01.1, 1.02, 1.03 and 1.04 versions of Darkest Hour are NOT COMPATIBLE with this patch and you should finish/abandon your ongoing campaigns before switching to this one.
2. The patch will turn the censored German boxed version of the game into a fully functional all-language version.
3. Most mods designed for 1.04 or older versions will need an update before being compatible with 1.05. We'll post a modding guide to help in the process soon, but for most mods only update to misc.txt will be required.
4. If you find any bugs please report them at the Bug Reports sub-forum, using [1.05] as a thread name prefix.
5. 1.04 (and older) versions are no longer supported, so if you use one and find a problem please make sure it is reproducible with version 1.05 before reporting it.


Install notes for non-Steam users

1. Make sure you have a clean (unmodified) installation of Darkest Hour. The patch is designed to work with all official Darkest Hour releases (boxed German version, 1.0, 1.01, 1.02, 1.03, 1.04), but it should work with all previous beta versions too.
2. Download Darkest Hour Patch 1.05.exe 178 MB (187,480,397 bytes) from one of these locations Mirror1 Mirror2.
3. Start the patch installer program (Darkest Hour Patch 1.05.exe) and follow the instructions.
4. When proper installed you should have these check-sums:
KVZZ - Darkest Hour Full
TENE - Darkest Hour Light
LNIC - No mods (Darkest Hour Core)

If this is not the case, then something went wrong and you should start over (uninstall, delete all remaining files, install the main game, install the patch)


Installation notes - Steam users

For the moment Version 1.05 is available through the Beta tab (versions 1.02 and 1.03 can be found there too) while 1.04 is still the default version (this will be changed later).

Versions 1.02, 1.03 and 1.05 are available from the Beta tab.
To switch to any of those, open your steam library.
Find "Darkest Hour a Heart of Iron Game" in the list of your games, then right click on it and select "Properties".
In the Properties, select the Beta tab and from there you can select 1.02 - Darkest Hour 1.02, 1.03 - Darkest Hour 1.03 or 1.05 - Darkest Hour 1.05.
Just select it and close the properties, the update should begin immediately!

Have fun! :)

How to update a 1.04 mod to 1.05

The only file you need to modify is misc.txt.

Update 1.04 misc.txt to 1.05

Add 2 new lines 84 -> 85:
Code:
# Added extra upgrade progress to units in supply. Added daily progress to all units in supply that can upgrade is equal to Cur_STR/(Max_STR * THIS). Added value is not affected by any other upgrade modifiers. Set to 0 to disable this functionality.
    720 #0
Add 3 new lines 184 -> 186 (after adding the previous 2 new lines):
Code:
# Modifier on distance between current and closest friendly province which is used for supply distance mod calculation (modifier on ORG regain, reinforce and upgrade speed of units).
#    Higher this is, higher the distance penalty would be. 0.0 - ignore distance (effectively disables supply distance mod), 1.0 - no modification on distance between provinces
    1.0 # 1.0
Add 4 new lines 334 -> 337 (after adding the previous 5 new lines):
Code:
# Combat Modifier: Penalty for air units bombing entrenched armies (entrenchment level * THIS, final value is limited to -0.99)
    -0.03
# Combat Modifier: Bonus for defending entrenched armies in land combat (entrenchment level * THIS)
    0.01
Add 2 new lines 585 -> 586 (after adding the previous 9 new lines):
Code:
# ESE bonus from offensive supply
    0.25 #0.25
REMOVE 4 lines from 721 to 724 (after adding the previous 11 new lines), but save the content as they have been moved later in the file:
Code:
# Max Land units dig in level.
    30.0 #15.0
# Dig in level increase per day.
    1.5 #1.0
Line 976 has been renamed from "# Total production efficiency" to "Industrial production efficiency". No change required.
Add 10 new lines 978 -> 987 (after adding the previous 11 new lines and removing those 4 lines):

# Oil production efficiency
    0.9 #1.0
# Metal production efficiency
    0.9 #1.0
# Energy production efficiency
    0.9 #1.0
# Rare Materials production efficiency
    0.9 #1.0

    1.0 #1.0
Modify line 989 (after adding the previous 21 new lines and removing those 4 lines) from " 0.0 #0.0" to " 1.0 #1.0".
Add 4 new lines 1018 -> 1021 (after adding the previous 21 new lines and removing those 4 lines). Please note that these are actually the 4 lines we previously removed:
Code:
# Max Land units dig in level.
    30.0 #15.0
# Dig in level increase per day.
    1.5 #1.0
Add 2 new lines 1155 -> 1156 (after adding the previous 25 new lines and removing those 4 lines):
Code:
# Allow AI countries to leave alliance because of bad relations or too different government type compared to alliance leader (on top of all other leave alliance rules). 1 - Allowed, 0 - Disabled
    1 #1
Total: added 27 lines, removed 4 lines.
Length of old 1.04 misc.txt: 1286 lines.
Length of new 1.05 misc.txt: 1309 lines (1286 + 27 - 4).

Found a bug, new event chain for DDR in 1933 scenario. USSR declares war to Finland and it's imposible to stike Finland from USSR soil. USSR AI also ignores the war.

Loading a scenario seems to take significantly longer in 1.05 than it did in previous versions. When I load up a new game in 1.05 it takes about three minutes to finish and get to gameplay whereas before it took my computer around ten seconds. I have no idea what is causing this or if anyone else is having a similar problem? I have a clean install of Darkest hour with the 1.05 patch and then 1.05.1 hotfix applied over it.

Is it enough to install the 1.05.1 hot-fix, or are we still to install it on top of the 1.05?

Thanks AC. Yes that's what I thought.

Maybe its me getting blind or something? but I haven't been able to find the link for the 1.05 patch.
I downloaded it in December or January, and now I need it again.

Can only find the link to the hotfix? Help :)

Found it!

It was "camoflaged" as a mirror link, while I was searching for the name patch. Getting old here :)
