We've just added our new developer video to the original post

We've been listening to your feedback on the App Store reviews and in the next update we will be making it so you can play the two campaigns (and the purchasable campaigns) as either the Union or Confederates.

We've also fixed an issue with the saved progress sometimes being lost if you were not signed into the Game Center after previously being signed in.

We're hoping to submit update 1.1 to Apple next week

Any news on the update? I was holding off on buying until then.

This game is lovely. Some very nuanced mechanics I wish I thought of. =P

We've now submitted version 1.1 of the game to Apple which includes the following improvements:
  • Added: It is now possible to play as either Union or Confederate in the campaigns.
  • Added: USS Monitor unit.
  • Added: Support for iPhone 5 display resolution.
  • Changed: The minimum iOS version has increased from 4.2 to 4.3.
  • Fixed: It should no longer seem as if your campaign progress has been "lost" after connecting to/disconnecting from Game Centre.
  • Fixed: When a unit that contained a general was destroyed by impact support shooting, the general would stay in the hex next to the enemy.
  • Fixed: When the AI attempted a move involving a rare combination of terrain, Fog of War and enemies, the AI would stop playing and you would have to start the scenario again.
We hope you like the improvements and we'll let you know when the update has been approved by Apple.

On my iPad 3 this update has corrupted the background graphics. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Update 1.1 is now available, however there is an issue with the purchasable campaigns in it.

We've submitted update 1.2 which fixes this issue and also a graphical glitch with the Fog of War on the new iPad. We've also requested that Apple expedite the app review process for the update. Apologies for any inconvenience.
