winSPMBT-winSPWW2

winSPWW2 10.01 Replaces winSPWW2 10.0 and winSPMBT 11.01 Replaces winSPMBT 11.0

Every once and a while corrections become necessary. You can always count on Camo Workshop to make corrections efficiently and immediately. The new upgrades for winSPMBT and winSPWW2 are now available. These upgrades replace the upgrades from March 3rd. A description of the changes follow.

A couple of obscure but serious database errors were discovered in the Orders of Battle (OOBs) in both games after the latest patches were released. That lead to the discovery that an error that we had thought had been corrected in the coding of the master unit cost calculator a year ago had resurfaced and after tracking that down and checking the recalculated OOB’s it was discovered that perhaps 5% of the units in the games had incorrect costs. The problem is , in the two games combined, five percent of the units is about 2,400 units.

Most of those cost errors were minor in the 1-2 point range but some unit classes like attack Helicopters as well as SEAD and COIN aircraft in winSPMBT for example were out by 20 points or so and the ground attack unit class in winSPWW2 was out by a bit less but roughly the same amount.

Since this was also a year a new version of the CD was being created we could not knowingly ship the new CD with these errors so the decision was made to correct the CD before it was released and that meant a revised patch needed to be issued.

Those who have ordered the physical, safebox, version of these games will be receiving the latest 10.01 and 11.01 versions. Those who ordered the download versions will be receiving new download links to the 10.01 amd 11.01 versions. Those who were just upgrading using the patches can go to the games’ product pages to get the new upgrade patches. Just look for the links under the ‘Downloads’ section.

For those who ordered the download version, all the new download links will go out today. The physical safebox versions will start shipping today, but will take through tomorrow to ship all games. All orders will ship in the order received. Those who ordered the safebox games will receive an email when your order ships.

Please note if you are currently playing in a secure PBEM game applying the patch WILL cause your game to FAIL. So be smart, wait until completing your game, and then make sure to patch up.

The Camo Workshop regrets the errors and the necessity of issuing updated game patches so soon but we strive to release the best possible game we can and sometimes that means things like this will happen from time to time.

Camo Workshop says, “Apologies to our Fans”

As of 6:53 am (EDST) this morning (April 21, 2014) new (b) versions of both patches are in place. DRG of Camo Worshop said on the Shrapnel Games’ Camo Workshop Forums, “There are NO OOB changes so anyone who may have started a PBEM is not affected and can download this new version without problems. The game version number that shows when the game starts has NOT changed as there were no code or OOB changes – the only change is to the patch version. I apologise for the inconvenience.”

The following winSPMBT corrections were made:

Key Game Guide files were put in an incorrectly named folder in the orginal patch download and therefore critical info on how to fire NLOS missles was not showing up when players tried to find that info in the Game Guide. As well.- since this had to be rebuilt for the Game Guide info anyway – the T-14 Armata photo that was missing from the orginal patch is now in this ‘b’ version.

The following winSPWW2 correction was made:

The missing text file for the “Invasion Sweden 1943″ campaign has been included .

Anyone who downloaded and installed the original patch of April 20, 2016 should download and install the new ‘b’ versions.

The winSPMBT patch can be found here.

The winSPWW2 patch can be found here.

Both winSPWW2 and winSPMBT are available as fully featured FREE downloads or Enhanced Editions (CD or Download) through our e-store. The Enhanced Editions are not different in the core gameplay, but provide a lot of extra bells and whistles for the Steel Panthers connoisseur. Both games work with even the latest version of Windows.
