I know everyone is busy playing Waterloo so I'll try and keep this brief.  We just wanted to post a quick update on what we've been up to, as well as our plans for the near future.

First of all, we may have seemed a bit quiet as of late.  That's because we've been hard at work finalizing the SDK (Software Development Kit).  This kit will contain all of the tools you need to mod the game, including a Scenario Editor.

Following the release of the SDK, next up will be the first major patch for Waterloo.  The patch will address a few pesky bugs, as well as other updates.

Also, Tim (our troop sprite extraordinaire) posted a poll on the forum a few weeks back on adding a couple brand new troop sprite mods to the game.  Well, your votes were counted and the Prussian Landwehr Cavalry, and the Chasseurs a Cheval Garde won!  (click the names to download the mods)

New Sprite!

 

And finally, you may have seen the posts from Matrix games on Facebook or Twitter, or on the official HOW15 site , but Matt (A.K.A "Little Powell") made the journey across the pond to attend the 2015 Home Of Wargamers Developers Conference.  The event was held in Castel Brando--a magnificent medieval castle situated in the hills of northern Italy!  Matrix Games/Slitherine put on a fantastic event, with several informative presentations, guest speakers, and of course a little entertainment, which included an archery contest and a wine tasting at an 8,000 year old vineyard.  The developers discussed where the industry is going, and ways to make the best wargames available even better.

That's it for now.  Hope you are enjoying Waterloo, and keep the feedback coming.

A victory for common sense. We need to celebrate such wins, rare as they are.

The society is going to hell fast. Complete nonsense I hope eventually when they go after the "racist" american flag
this p/c stuff will back fire, i more than any hate political correctness, it is simply a way to destroy free speech some don't like. Tell them how the confederates were democrats and democrats offend you so i dont want to see a democrat sign/flag anywhere anymore.

Thank goodness we didn't spend a year to port over SOW to the Mac format...this would have been disastrous.

One racist punk has done more harm to our Southern Heritage than all the racist, white supremest organizations have done for decades by using our battle flag as a symbol of their HATE.

Norb are you guilty?


We are absolutely losing our minds in this politically correct county.
