We heard Mitra say you lose Antietam and Pipe Creek maps after installing it. Is that true?

Not true for me.

The installation program identifies that you have the map packs installed and asks you to enter their activation codes (which hopefully you will have kept safe)

Works fine for me SP but not tried MP yet

The Matrix installer is seriously flawed. There are workarounds that are detailed on the NSD forum. I can also help if needed. People seem to have the best success if they deactivate the game before trying to run the 1.5 patch. Before you deactivate the game, deactivate any mods you may have running. Good luck. Sad

One of the NSD guys has just said that a new version of the patch will be out later today. I'm going to wait for that before doing anything. See here http://www.norbsoftdev.net/forum/technical-help-a-bug-post/50781-scourge-of-war-15-patch--activation-errors#50892

Martin, I just followed NYCs instructions, which seems to be Cleburne's method and it worked.

1) Have your Pipe Creek and Antietam codes ready. Do not try to update until you have those codes at the ready.

2) Deactivate your game.

3) Install patch and follow directions. The game will ask for your GB activation code, then detect Pipe Creek and ask for its code and finally it'll detect Antietam and ask for that code as well.

I too have just done this, using Matrix's second version of the installer and I seem to be good to go. :-)

Just gone to the Matrix website to download the patch, and there are 3 options:

Scourge of War: Gettysburg v1.50 Update
Posted: 21 SEP 2012
Updates old NorbSoftDev installers to full Matrix install. Revised to correct some installer issues.
Download

Scourge of War: Gettysburg v1.50 Update (Patches-Scroll Mirror)
Posted: 21 SEP 2012
Download

Scourge of War: Gettysburg v1.50 Update (AtomicGamer Mirror)
Posted: 20 SEP 2012
Download

All advice welcome. Do I want the top one, and what are the others?

I would *guess*, Martin, that the first one is the one you want. Sounds like the one I used, though I got it from NSD forum.

The other two look like alternative download sites.

I'll cross my fingers for you.

They are all the same file, the mirrors just allow you to get at them faster if you're local to those servers or have accounts there. I imagine they are lal in the USA so no difference to European downloaders.
