Kind regards,

I just downloaded it. It's available for the General's Edition.

You guys are right...it's nowhere to be seen for the regular version....

I just downloaded the patch to regular version through the True Update and works fine. I think there is no difference between patch for GE of free download version, I just clicked the "retail" link on the SPWAW-line at the "Members"-area and installed the patch.

Ok, I apologize, guys. The patch is indeed in the members section, which requires a separate account to be set up. Your forum name and password will not work in this area.

I'm gonna to find out if Matrix can make the patch more easily accessible. The last news I had heard was that it was going to be released either today (Sunday) or tomorrow. Looks like David sneaked it in and then didn't bother to let me (and us) know about it.

It is perfectly easy to download. I registered, logged in and downloaded the two files then installed them over v 8.2 flawlessly, .......all in less that 15 minutes.

If true update works for you then that's a bonus. I can't get it to work but the long way is not too difficult.

Major Destruction is right, once you get activated in the members area (I had to re-register, too, and my activation was nearly instantaneous), getting the patch is easy.

I really owe Paranormalix an apology--the man was on his toes, and got the scoop first. The nearest I can figure is that David was determined to get this available to us before he had to catch the flight to Germany for the Internationale Kriegspiel Expo. Time ran short, and he didn't get a chance to let me know. Otherwise, you guys would've had to wait for another five or six days.

Yes, we had a communications failure, but all is well in the end. You have the patch, and that's all that matters.

Crap! Does that mean another week before we get the WITP 1.3 patch? Or does David not control that one? It seemed like it was very close to release.

Kingwanabee, I can't address this issue. Your best bet is to post your concerns in the WITP forum area. I'm sorry, but I can't help you on this.

What the hill of beans is going on...I've been signed in on the forums and membership and when I go to "Members" I can't get on....bad password....I've had three different passwords, for membership, that I've tried with no luck....I utilized the "forgot password" check box and got a message that I would recieve a Email with correct password.....but I guess that'll take as long as getting this patch. BAH HUMBUG

I was able to login to the Member's area but when I tried to download either file I received a page not found error message... Am I the only one having this issue?

Found it no problem. But, why are there two patches? One was a zip file, the other not. Are they both neccessary or same info different format? Download the zip file and installed, seemed to have updated to 8.3 but other than the version number at the bottem of the page really haven't looked for other changes.

Same file in both I assume. Zip-file is just the exe-file zipped.

I've installed it and it causes a strange problem. I began to play and, after a few moves, the games crashes and closes itself. :P ¿How can I fix it? Not to soy that it didn't happened with the 8.20

That's right, guys. The two files are exactly the same--the .exe is just for the convenience of those who may not have Win Zip or a similar program.

KG, I think you are in error there.
The zip file contains the SND, ENC OOB and PIC updates and the mech.exe file contains only the mech.exe

That, way if you want to only upgrade your OOB's and the goodies you can do so and use the v8.2 or any other mech.exe. This is a good thing for players who want to play their pbems to conclusion without generating a 'cheat' warning.

And if you also want the mech 8.3 you can do that seperately.

I extracted the zip to a temp folder to see what it contained. No mech.exe.

Hang on, Major Destruction. The two files ARE the same. The one labeled exe is the 8.3 patch installer--the other one is the patch installer in a zip file--that's the only difference. Neither one contains a new mech .exe, as the 8.2 mech.exe that you get with the complete 8.2 game was the last mech.exe update. There won't be another one.
