Thank you, will test it.

Glad it does not require directx 12, but please, do not make directx 12 a necessary requirement, many configs do not support fully directx 12...

Cheers

The link I just updated above. This is a BETA test which means you have to copy paste the files. It isn't an install update.

I attempted to install the latest patch and get the message "Failed to load mono". I believe I copied all the unzipped files to the proper location.

Any idea what I may of done wrong?

Thanks,
RA

The game files should be here generally. I have them somewhere else.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Matrix\WarPlan

Do not put them in the C:\Users\"your user name"\Documents\My Games\WarPlan directory.

If you are having issues with the beta try...
#1 See what version of Direct X you are running.
Start -> Run -> dxdiag
Windows XP is using DX9 and that is being phased out
You should be using DirectX 12

#2 deleting all the folders that have the same name in the games directory before copying although I think copying over already does that.

Not all graphic cards can handle directx 12, and IMHO it’s overkill for a 2d game like WarPlan...

Is there not a way to program Unity 2019 to use good old directx 9.0c as minimum ?

DirectX 9 is quite old now. I hope you will find a way for all your customers:
