Re: Be Careful about using old maps

It works fine in a Dos version of SPWW2 I have installed. I tried transferring it to WinSPMBT, renumbering it and trying it there. It locked the game. If you have it in a Windows version, throw it...

Be Careful about using old maps

I decided to ask how Russian armour would perform in the African bush, so I used an old map dating from SPWW2v5. I could select a map and buy units but when I tried to deploy, the programme crashed....

Is This Just Me or What

Unit Fragility Might Be gone

Before, it seemed like any unit with a crew of 20 or more was very Fragile. It broke and routed when fired upon and stayed routed. I tried and experiment using 25 man units. They kept cohesion. ...

Re: Down

Be careful about the Win 10 updates. I ran one, and it took away almost everything but WinSpmbt, WinSpww2 and Launch.exe. I had to go back to previous version and run the parts one by one.

Re: Rhodesian Army infantry 1965-80
