I just want to share my clicking experience with SPWAW 2016 and artillery click bug feature on core i7 with Windows 10.

I manage to control the artillery menu by clicking at two tor three different location in the same hex / box. Its just like double click, but I need to move the mouse a bit for the second click, and additional third click just to make sure. So its a triple click.

The trick seems to work without having to press shift or shift/L button.
I tested with fixed affinity core 7 or core 0 but its no different (with control-shift-esc - detail tab - set affinity).
Also I remove the /affinity 80 from mech.exe and it still work fine.

A little bit difficult on the small artillery command box, but that's the fun.
Triple shifted clicks on each hex/box is just like playing game. Well it is a game... :-D
Its a feature now :-)

Howdie, this game is an alltime classic. Sadly the only "game" (which is more a monster) I can play at all is WITPAE at the time.

But as soon more time will download for sure, I still have XP in one of PCs so should have no probs running it. I still have 8.4 and H2H installed and both seem to work :)

SPWAW also works in Win7 & Win10. Only significant problem is some processors (at least Core i7) give hard time for game's bombard screen (arty bug)

Would it be possible to play the Mega Campaigns with this?

Unfortunately no.
Y'know, I'd be up for tackling one of those bad-boys but AFAIK the editor(s) for that flavour is propriety and that's where Matrix makes their money. Though TBF I haven't asked yet.

What up Erik? I've already converted at least 20 Campaigns so far on my resume.

Yeah, I would pay for the megas if they were updated to SP:WaW 2016 and (and it's a big AND) they would work with Command & Control ON. Yes, I would pay for them even though the successor game is being worked on now.

So please, Matrix, let the Good Major Mess work on them!

Just stumbled on this! Had never expected to ever run this again. Downloaded and it ran fine under Win10 which I was amazed at. Obviously fairly dated graphics etc but had a great play all the same.

Well done and thanks.
