Arrow Men of War: Vietnam Patch 1

This patch eliminates the de-sync issues some players reported while playing between standard and special editions of the game, additionaly it unlocks US campaign from the start so you can play it without completing the North Vietnam campaign first.

WARNING: Saves created during missions will become obsolete, but already completed missions will stay completed. Because of this, please finish the mission in progress before installing this fix.

How do I install the Hotfix for the Steam verision of Mow: Vietnam (Special Edition)? I've checked both Steam's and 1C's support sites and cannot find any instructions.

Thanks in advance for your support!

To install the hot fix for Mow: Vietnam (Special Edition), do the following.

1. Left click on Men of War: Vietnam in the game list.
2. Click Properties
3. Click Updates tab
4. Click on the drop down menu and choose "Do not automatically update this game"
5. Unzip the hot fix into C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\men of war - vietnam
6. Start the game

When the game starts, the version number should contain 13.09.2011 .
Eventually 1C will roll out an update through Steam, so don't forget to change the game back to auto updates.

Why not have steam versions update through steam? sometime in future that should be done for steam owners or game registered through steam to update to hotfix by itself.

it's a hotfix not a patch. i don't know how exactly Valve handles that, but it's possible they don't allow untested/unsupported updates to be distributed on Steam.

We wanted to release this hotfix as fast as possible, implementing it to Steam needs time. There will be be a autoupdate but a bit later.

I followed your directions for manually updating my Steam version of Mow: Vietnam; however, it still shows: Men of War: Vietnam + DLC (1.00.1) - not 13.09.2011. I did set the Properties to "Do not automatically update this game," but failed to click the Close button on the Properties dialogue box. Could that have caused it not to update?
