Hi everyone,

A new preview has just been posted at the Wargamer. An AAR should follow soon and the release shortly thereafter. Warm up your computers...

I have 2 of their old games the very first one from Sharpnel and then the second one with this same engine/graphics. The game had a fixed resolution from what I recall but you can modify an .ini file to make it run in a window mode. Hopefully they still have this window mode in this new version as I really liked that. I am looking forward to this one also.

I'm interested in this too.
I noticed there is no mention of it on the preview, and the screenshots look very low res so i'm a little worried...
The graphics, even if "primitive" don't look bad at all but i hope to be able to play on high res (at least 1280x1024) and not on a little window in the corner of my screen.
We are in 2009!

Cheers!

Not much longer now gents. I almost can't believe we are finally there.

Hi guys, the resolution is 1024x768. The graphics were greatly improved, but the engine itself still has that resolution limitation.

I assume that any previous windowed mode will still work, though I personally run it full screen but with my display scaling set to not scale, so that it looks crisp.

Erik (or devs), any chance of posting a full resolution screen shot? The Wargamer pics are pretty down-sampled.

Looking forward to this one. The Napoleonic era with this engine would be outrageously good.

The game still supports windowedmode. However I hope in future versions that we include different resolutions instead of just locking it at 1024x768.

Here is some better screens by the way.
