We've Upgraded the Upgrades!
winSPWW2 10.01 Replaces winSPWW2 10.0 and winSPMBT 11.01 Replaces winSPMBT 11.0



Wilmington, NC, 31 March 2017


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.

Get the winSPWW2 10.01 patch here.

Get the winSPMBT 11.01 patch here.

WinSPMBT and WinSPWW2 are available in three different formats. There is a free version that includes all the general content. Then there are two Enhanced Editions that sound just like the name, providing enhanced capabilities and features not available in the free versions. One version is a physical CD while the other is a download. All versions work with the latest version of Windows.

I ran the upgrade but you start the game and go to the help tab, it still says version 21st February 2017. So how do you verify it is version 11.0.1?

The game version number is the same place it has always been

http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/attac...1&d=1491001634

The version number in the help tab is the version number of GAMEOPTIONS.....we put it there instead of the first page so people wouldn't get confused..... I guess that didn't quite work out as we planned

Thanks for letting us know. The link in the PR is fixed now.

I checked and it says version 21st February 2017. It does not say version 11 or 11.01.

The game version number is and always has been at the bottom of the main game screen NOT the help screen of gameoptions-- 21st February 2017 is the game options version not the game.

I have no idea why you cannot see the image I posted . I see it clearly. Load the game.....forget the Help screen of game options..... the version number is at the bottom of the screen that first appears and has the scenario list

DRG,

I cannot access your link, it says I am not "privileged enough." Maybe I don't post frequently enough.

Since I could not open the link, I misunderstood the references to a different version number.

I now verified I have 11.01. Thanks.

Here is the exact message I get when trying to access the link:
"jeffreywilens, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?

Re: We've Upgraded the Upgrades!
 
OK...... it may be because I had to post the image on a playtesters forum to get the link to appear and only I have "permission" to do that....... I forget sometimes I can do many things regular posters cannot

Re: We've Upgraded the Upgrades!
 
If you are taking suggestion for a potential future update, here are some:

How about updating the pathfinding algorithm so that players get an option of what path to take on long transits. For example, high risk paths - vehicles may get stuck, medium risk - low risk of getting stuck, low risk - almost no chance of getting stuck? sort of like the google traffic lines on their mapping software.

How about a routine to let a vehicle move into a building for concealment and camoflage? Maybe some vehicles need an engineer type to prep the building, and other vehicles must expend a lot of movement points to move into a building. Moving out though I think should not take as long. Also, towed guns should be able to do this too (although I think this can be done during setup, not sure it can be done during play).
