From: Payne's Creek, CA USA
I've only been playing this game a week or so. I first got the 3.0 version on a PC Gamer CD. Yesterday I got the 4.0 version on the Computer Gaming World CD.
I want to play this with friends around the world, so the PBEM feature is of high importance. I've read a lot on this forum that the VCR replay doesn't work right in PBEM. The VCR replay seems highly important for PBEM. Here's what I found at Tankhead's SPW@W site http://tankhead.home.icq.com/main.html (edited to fit my particular question):
Does this mean that the only players having problems with PBEM are those who havn't downloaded the 4.4 patch, or are there still problems with PBEM? Should I stick with an earlier version if I want PBEM?
(I tried to put enough info in this post to help out other FNGs, too. )
STEEL PANTHERS WORLD AT WAR v4.4
FEATURES, CHANGES and BUG FIXES IN v4.4
NEW FEATURES, ENHANCEMENTS and BUG FIXES v4.4:
2. PBEM saves should save properly in slots 10, 11, 12 now.
3. Fixed PBEM VCR replay stopping prematurely.
6. Added a much larger VCR replay buffer and now saved the VCR replay as a separate file so it compresses better.
7. Units disappearing bug fixed and VCR playback missing units corrected also.
Sergeant to new replacements on the line: I may not have time to tell you to duck, but if you see me dive for the ground you might want to think about why I'm doing it.
