The main encyclopedia text is not affected by the larger font mod. That screen uses a different font than the rest of the screens that the larger font option uses. The initial screen you see when you enter the encyclopedia DOES use the larger font if it's selected but if you chose a unit to view it does not

DRG, Okay mystery solved. The Encyclopedia (or the unit information screen if right click on units in battles) is not helped by the larger font.

I also tried Windows DPI scaling and that was no help either.

Guess it's back to lowering resolution or seeing about better glasses.

Hello friends. I have a problem with the latest update. In opfilter not shown buttons to change settings.
When I pass the mouse over the buttons where they should be, I see the option to change appears. But the buttons are ghosts.
Sample capture shipping.

Big "Thank You" to Don and Andy. Well done my friends. I hope that your break from the game's development and improvement is restful for both of you. You have certainly come a long way from the old DOS to Windows playtester group. Wishing you both the best that life offers,

Dick aka "Boomer" Burleigh

As of 5:45 am this morning a (R)evised winSPMBT patch was posted to the Shrapnel servers to add a revised SHP file that made it to the winSPWW2 patch but not the winSPMBT patch.

Anyone who uses the opfire filtering routine will need to download this (R)evised patch ( it's been renamed to WinSPMBTv8_(2014)_Upgrade(R).exe ) the problem corrected ONLY affects the Opfire routine screen so anyone just using the free version of the game does not need to download the revised patch a second time but if you own the extended version and use the Opfire routine you should DL and install the revised patch. Re-installing the (R) patch should not affect any secure PBEM games you may have started as it only substitutes a SHP file.

I apologize for this error but please NOTE : This does NOT affect winSPWW2

Guys, thank you for the updates. But the larger font, as noted, didn't help anything in game. I'll continue to use 1024x768. The game works fine at that resolution. Even at 1280x1024 the font is too small to be comfortable. I have up to date computer glasses but my eyes can only be corrected so far even with glasses. It's a great game and the annual patches are incredible.

Thank you both very much for your hard work! I have been playing this game, if one form or another, since 1996 and winspmbt 8.0 is truly a masterpiece of the steel panthers family.

Yes it is, WINSPWW2 as well, both games remain unmatched as of today in the genre of turn based (I GO/U GO) Brigade to Squad level tactical wargames.

Can't find the (R)ivised patch, can only find the 2014 patch. Also, does this combine all the other patches published over the years in one mega patch? If not, could you instruct me on the order of download. I have all the patches. I just can't remember the download order, as some were dated out of sequence with the patch numbers. My computer has been down for a couple of years and I forgot the order, so I have to reload them. Have the CD edition. Running Windows 8. Thanks
