UPatch HD 1.1


The new version is here - UPatch HD 1.1 Release 3 includes several new features and many improvements. If you already have one of the previous 1.1 releases, just install the new version over it to update your game.

>>>>>>>>> For more information about UPatch HD and all of its features - visit the official site.

One of the most important additions in Release 3 is the new mouse control option (enabled by default). Previously the game did not detect right-clicks properly when moving the mouse rapidly, which prevented commands to be quickly issued one after another. It was also problematic for higher-end (gaming) devices, since they are more sensitive. The new option eliminates this problem.

Multiple commands are properly accepted and executed.


The new version also introduces the new Idle Military Units hotkey - you can now press "," (comma) to cycle through your idle military units. Several other hotkeys were added as well, for example Granary, Storage Pit, Market and Government Center can now be selected and cycled through with Ctrl+ hotkeys.

The number of possible unit groups is doubled in Release 3 - you can now use the numpad keys on your keyboard to create/select unit groups 10-19 and they will all show their group number when selected (including the previously missing number for group 0).

New unit groups available.

New options are available (Launcher - Settings - Advanced) - you can now have Time/Population and Player Scores shown automatically at game start. Many other improvements, some bug fixes and optimizations are also present (the full list is on the site).

The new release contains some important updates on the modding system as well, like the ability to create entirely new tilesets (architecture/interface styles). All the details are in the modding section of the site.

Is there a way that i can turn off the fast screen movement? That would be the only thing perfect to me since i love the old one :p

Yes, there is a Scroll Speed option inside the game - click the Menu button and select Game Settings.

It's great work... too bad it's useless becasuse I regularly lose my campaign progress (my saved games are intact but the progress is not restored even if I load a saved campaign map and win the mission again so I can't continue the campaign). Would you mind either fixing this bug or just unlocking all the missions by default? It's really frustrating to almost finish a campaign then after a few days the player you created just ******* vanishes. How is that even a thing?

I tried every solution related to the Virtual Store and I always find that folder empty so seems like that's not the issue. I'm on Windows 10.

The problem with campaign progress must be something on your PC, because the patch is tested very well and there is no such problem reported. Check if you use the latest version of the patch and try running the game as administrator.

As for difficulty - just switch to Moderate. I recommended Hard for Random Maps (what most people play), not for Campaigns, where Moderate can be considered more appropriate.

Gigantic is rounded at 250x250 actually, but pretty close to the maximum. For ai to train more units, you need to make your own ai file and assign it in a scenario.

Is it possible to create larger maps gigantic+ and 75-100 population limit Could be

No, larger maps (over 255x255) can't work without source code (which is not available). Pop limit can easily be changed in any UP mod, like the one I posted here: Upatch-hd.weebly.com
