The problem isn't money, it's time. I have a lot of Matrix titles but there's only so much time in a day. Anyway, great to see some realistic prices for some of the oldies but goodies.

Cheers,
CB

With war in the Pacific ae, the smaller scenarios are reasonable for a new player?

Yes,

Additional scenarios have been added over the years as well.

Please tell me this works with Windows 10 without a lot of song and dance.

Microsoft ran W10 down my throat and WitP augured in like a Zero hit by six .50 cal.

Never could make it work.

Can I get back into WitP?

I don't know about WITP.

I know that WITP-AE works with windows 10 if your computer meets the min. specs.

But to install WITP-AE there is some song and quite a bit of dance involved.

Taxcutter-I'm no computer whiz. I dislike fiddling with install lines and don't bother with a number of the unofficial betas or post-market unofficial add-ons (e.g., Tracker). I'm no luddite, but I don't find 'joy' in monkeying with computer settings like many others do.

But if *I* can figure out how to get it to run on Windows 10 (which I had to do a couple years ago), you can too.

Follow the guidelines on the Tech Issues WiTP:AE subforum for best configuration results. Particularly relevant for you would be 'switches' and Win10 compatibility threads. There are many that may address your questions. And forumites with a ken for fiddly bits like this are usually quite helpful in troubleshooting your efforts too.

Good luck! And welcome aboard.

WITP was not designed to work with switches that make it possible for the game to work with Win 10. WITP-AE is designed to use these switches.
I was also in the boat of having Win 10 forced on me after a hard drive crash, and I dreaded tackling all the issues that had been identified with running the game under Win 10.
But I had been reading the threads in the tech section and was able to quickly find what to do an was running the game smoothly within a few hours of the install and patch to beta. No need to dread - the problems have all occurred on other users and the answers have been found and posted in the tech section.

Yep,

I got a new computer with Windows 10 already installed.
So I had to build from the ground up.

I was fortunate in that I already knew about the upgrades and switches and how to apply them.
I knew I would just have to get the right combination.

It looks like with the sale price a lot of new players may come in.

They are use to installing a game and having it run right out of the box.
They may not know how to build from the ground up.

I guess you are going to have to stand by for them and clam them down.

Thanks for the info on WITP.

I should have waited. ;)

I picked up the game during the Easter sale earlier this year when it was, I think, 30% off the normal full price. (Final purchase cost at the time was about $55 Cdn.) On the up side, Bombing the Reich is less than $14 Cdn during the current Holiday sale, so waiting in the case of that game was worthwhile. :)
