Damn, robot, this is the silliest post Ive read by you yet... Im not going even to try and rewrite what Ive already said again, since you clearly have no idea what Im talking about. However, it doesnt matter. SP WaW is a great product, and Generals Edition IS ON THE PAY FOR THE GAME cd. Let me quote: "Steel Panthers: World at War "Generals Edition" offers you SP:WAW v8.2 together with all 4 Megacampaigns on one disc." If they charge money for that, they charge money for SP WaW. This is what Ive got on my desktop on this very minute. Now, that product disc is copyrighted, and I cannot use the whoel of it, or parts, separately, copying, or any of that sorts. Its copyrighted. Even though its the "same" engine available free, it isnt non-paid-for.
As a quote: "This is an incremental update and requires v8.2 to be installed first. This update is for both the free version of Steel Panthers: World At War as well as the Steel Panthers: General's Edition compilation." says that there are indeed "two" versions of SP WaW. One non-paid, another paid, not holding MegaCampaigns different, but as part of the product.
But I DONT CARE anymore. I got the patch through other means. Matrix Games bs publishing and marketing and support decisions have no effect on gameplay or product happiness any more. Even if the free product was developed freely, it does not mean that Matrix Games, the license owner, can screw the support up more than they would on non-free products. Not top mention that they DO charge money for Generals Edition.
Whatever, have fun in your false dreams. I do know that some of you live in those dreams, in awe towards MG.
Goodbye. May you live happily ever after.
