Just got version 1.1. I had to copy-paste *.cmd file from original Matrix version to get game run on my Win7. But I've got another old problem and I don't remember how to deal with it. So could someone remind me how to get screenshots of the game on Win7? I just tried it out, and I get only black.

[edit]
I have attached that file on the post. Download, unzip to game's root directory, and run it. On Windows 7 that is.

The printscreen can be fixed with this windows registry patch:

It was made for another game but it works with SPWAW too.

As for the .cmd file it was meant to fix the artillery screen unresponsiveness on multi core processors. The patch you attached is the old win7 color fix .cmd file which only fixes the corrupted colors on windows 7 by killing exlorer.exe. Ofcourse if you have an old single core cpu that is all you need.

However if you have a multicore cpu and run windows 7 then you need both the color fix and the artillery fix. For this I would recommend using Aqrits ddwrapper or DXWnd together with the artillery fix as pointed out in the posts here:
http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=2452605&mpage=3

You could also make a combination of the original color fix by NCrawler by editing the cmd file to include the nessesary AFFINITY value like so:
quote:


@echo off
@echo ================================================
@echo NCrawler's SPWAW Windows 7 color fix
@echo ================================================
@echo This fix closes explorer.exe, waits until it is closed and then launches SPWAW
@echo off

taskkill /f /IM explorer.exe
start /AFFINITY 2 MECH.EXE
Start explorer.exe


Note that the correct AFFINITY value depends on how many cores your cpu has. Most common values are "2" for dual core and "8" for quad core.

Do you know what this magnificent bastard of a game needs? More publicity. I checked on YouTube and guess what I found there? Lots of videos about original Steel Panthers from 1995 and SPWW2, but only 2 videos about SPWAW. So could someone do let's play video about this SPWAW Enhanced FR, explain what the game is about, and show off some gameplay? My spoken english sucks hard, so I won't do it and my native finnish language has too small audience.

Aren't they basically the same though? SPWW2 and SPWAW?

I just installed the Enhanced FR 1.1, it also suffers from the artillery bug making it unplayable for me under Win 10 64bit.
I am running a core I5 4690 CPU.

Agreed, seems almost criminal this can't be resolved.
