1.0.3 Update

Hi All

Some new updates following feedback from the community:

First up PBEM

PBEM now has basic support in the game. Select the PBEM option and start and play the game as normal. Once your turn is complete the game will save the game out to your user directory. - \Korsun\PBEMSavedGame

Example
C:\Users\myusername\Korsun\PBEMSavedGame

In the PBEMSavedGame folder is a file called KorsunPBEM. This is the file you will need to send to your opponent.

Do not change the name of the file.

Your opponent should then save this file to the same folder on their computer.
Again, do not change the name of the file. They can then load the game from the saved games options in the Game Menu. The saved game will clearly be labeled as Email game.

You can only have one file in the PBEMSavedGame at a time.

Other small fixes/changes

After viewing the strategic map you will be returned to the same position on the main map.

More detail have been added in the English manual regarding combat.

About This Game



January 1944. The German Army had their last toehold on the Dneiper River. This salient projected between two powerful Soviet army groups, the 1st and 2nd Ukrainian Fronts. Though weakened in their previous efforts against the Germans, on January 25th and 26th, these two powerful groups attacked and surrounded two German corps.

The Germans responded quickly to this threat, hurrying reinforcements from other sectors. Their relief drive made good initial progress, but stalled in the face of stiff Soviet resistance and both sides antagonist, "General Mud". In the end, the trapped Germans made a desperate breakout attempt from the pocket. Less than half of the encircled forces escaped the trap, with none of their heavy weapons or equipment.

Battle For Korsun is a simulation of these battles in January and February 1944. Players control the various German and Soviet forces which took part in these struggles. The Soviet player must coordinate the offensives of his Fronts to encircle the Germans quickly before the Germans powerful reinforcements arrive. The German player must form a pocket perimeter, then orchestrate his relief drive with his Panzer divisions to rescue their trapped comrades
