I suppose this is the one of the things that gives Matrix fits, but SPWaW is still one of the best games ever, and Matrix has given up support for it. One of the obvious shortcomings is it was written in now archaic code, so for this reason alone it won't be upgraded again. So, to upgrade the game means that it would have to be redone from scratch, and their efforts have come to naught. Sure, some independent efforts have made the game better, but it's not enough. We've come to a standstill, and I don't understand it. After being involved with the game in times past, we've hit a stone wall. I wish I had an answer, but nothing is forthcoming.
As a disclaimer, I must add that I was invloved in the game's development for a while, and we came up with a definitive OOB for the USMC. The long campaign with the Marines is excellent, so I'm proud to have been a part of it. No other game can compare with it for representing the ground war in the Pacific at the tactical level.
