It seems Strategy First is not selling the current version for the DLCs.

So the deal from them is still very good,but if you want current you will still have to buy from Gamersgate.

Still for only $5 that"s a good deal without being version current.I still don't know what was updated or what if any thing was significant to warrant its own new version changes for those DLCs.

I got mine for Strat first awhile ago in a sale and the latest DLC from GG. I didn't post about the sale here as I thought it wasn't fair on Matrix.

Steel Fury with the mods is superb aswell.

It seems to me that Graviteam prefers Gamersgate as the official outlet for this game.At least at GG everything is current and up to date,and all new releases are ready for download same day Graviteam releases it.As far as being fair to Matrix-They deserve nothing but contempt for their poor support and half assed service for this game.All their excuses are old and tired concerning the patches, updates and DLCs.Graviteam would do well to distance themselves from them.

I updated Steel Fury and modded it but could never get into it. Until AP, nothing could ever equal Panzer Elite for me. I still miss the Platoon command and crew/vehicle management of that system. Totally immersive.

I bought the package and downloaded Iron Warriors. Game won't run. When I searched the Steam forums I saw the same problem reported there. Maybe that's why it's so cheap??? More fool me...

Like the old addage says"If it looks too good to be true,it probably is".

Regardless,base game for APOS plus 2 DLC for under $5 is still a great bargain,even if the DLCs aren't the current version.The differences between the DLC versions are very minor and to tell the truth I can't tell the difference between old or new version.

But,as I stated before-Gamersgate is probably your only option for purchasing the most current updated versions,now and most likely in the future as well.

Plus,the game will be getting a new name "Graviteam Tactics"and I think Krasnaya Polyana is the last DLC to fall on the Operation Star title.

It also looks to me that Gamersgate will be the only distributor to handle the new branding,since I've heard no mention of any other outlet approved by Graviteam to sell the game on their behalf.

I'm still not clear on all the legal problems they have had with the old titles,but it seems they want to start fresh and control most of the marketing and developement themselves without the hassles and outside interference that plagued the previous titles.

remarkus either way it's a good deal just for AP OS and the two dlc..shame you couldn't get on with Steel fury..i's the only tank sim I've ever enjoyed.

I expect the installation files for all the games are the same as if you'd have bought them separately from anywhere else so I'm sure your problems are nothing to do with the price.

There is one update you can't do to the DLC, something todo with the map..but I haven't missed it to be honest..the normal big patches work fine.

I'm looking forward to the new game..as APOS has got better and better so I'm really excited to see what they do nest. Not to interested in the Campaign..but I am with regards to the future Leningrad DLC.

Yeah shame to hear. I bought the same bundle and tried Iron Warriors and it runs fine for me on a Win7 64-bit machine.

There are batch files in the game directory to change the settings that are not available in teh game, it may pay to play around with them to see if it makes any difference.
