Forget about all those other attempts at fixing the Artillery Screen.
I am so proud to announce that The Depot is releasing a solution that has finally once and for all fixed the notorious Artillery Screen bug that has plagued this fine game for many years now.
A small patch that fixes a few lines of buggy code.
We have been testing this patch for a month now, and I can report to you that it works on every machine we've tried it on.
Intel / AMD / multi-core / even single-core / Win 10 / 9 / 8 / 7 / XP - it just works.
This patch, on top of solving the Arty problem - as if that isn't enough!!, also fixes the super-fast scrolling on these other screens:
- Paratroop setup Screen
- Glider setup Screen
- Infiltration setup Screen
- Edit Victory Objectives Screen
- C&C Objectives Screen
these following items had to be dealt with in another fashion, these ones will have a different (but OK) scrolling speed
- Build Mines/Barbed Wire/Tank Trap Screen
- Set Front Line Screen
- Entrenchment Screen
- Load/Unload Units Screen
Wooo Hooo!!!!!! is all I can say, other than shout out a big Honkin' Thank You to the two gentlemen that looked into the problem and came up with the fix - Riitaoja2 from this site, and Ghotik, the developer of DxWnd.
Also, to take advantage of this impressive breakthrough, a game patch with some minor OOB, graphics and Scenario fixes has been bundled up to be offered to you at the same time. We were also given permission by Mr. Erik Cumps to include his fine program - War Cab in our new release.
So, for you the discerning Gamer The Depot has now provided three options to enjoy this game as it should be.
A brand new complete installation of the most up to date Enhanced mod of SPWaW along with all the other bits and pieces.
The Depot are calling this new iteration of the game SPWaW Enhanced-FR Full Install
If you have the SPWaW 2016 download already on your HD, we have a patch file that will bump that version up to this new and improved Steel Panthers: World at War.
The Full Game and/or the patch for SPWaW 2016 can both be found HERE!!!
Annnnnnnnnnd, to also allow the many players that prefer the stock 8.403 game (along with all those folks that have bought the Generals Edition over the years) we took the time to patch the stock 8.403 mech.exe and you can find that version right HERE!!
I am soooooo happy!!!!
(and I think you will be too)
Come visit The Depot, download this and then go blow something up.
cheers to all of you
