How the hell do you download this? I was able to download each update for the entire existence of the game, now I can't. I'm able to do less and less each year. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to single out Shrapnel Games, generally it's the whole computer industry. It's like you have to be a certain class to use the personal confuser (I mean PC) nowadays, and it's getting worse and worse, and if I might add ... pretty ridiculous. I bet it's a 3rd party internet program like Winzip, or some stupid error on my part, like a bad connection or something. Either-way, I'll figure it out (well I hope). I just hope I don't have to spend a whole bunch of money in the process.

Sounds like a "beer lagg" or you are getting older corporal?

These 3d party programms, they don't bother me cause i allways do the same after installing Windows and needed drivers:

MPC Homecinema - good for all sort of Videos and Soundfiles, fast and stable too.
7-zip - for compressing and decompressing files of all sort including iso's.
Sumatra PDF - The name says it. It's much more stable than Adobe Acrobat and way faster.
paint.net - for Foto editing.
Microsoft Security Essentials - for security.
Libre Office portable - in case that Wordpad is not enough.
(notepad++ - for editing purposes.)

These Programms are moved to the desktop and from there they get installed. Afterwards they are deleted. Sounds a bit complicated. (This is be because i have UAC settings very high and by this way i must not worry about correct rightmanagment etc.)
These programms are fast, stable and work together in a way of harmony. They don't do things you won't. You can check with msconfig.exe but there are no hidden records.

They are all free. So you can buy yourself more beer and get even older. (sorry)

I have NO IDEA what the problem seems to be but it's at your end or everyone would be complaining. I click on the link, wait a few seconds and it starts to DL and ( for me ) about 45 seconds later it's on my HDD. I use Chrome, Internet explorer works slightly different but the end result is the same

Hi,
First, thank you for the updates.

Unfortunately, since I installed the latest version, I have some problems with my CD copy of the game.

When the game starts, the screen turns black and few seconds later, the normal picture with the tank appears. After that, the menu screen appears with some graphical problems and then can go black a few times. Sometimes the game works, sometime the screen remains black and I can not do anything anymore. In both cases, to exit the game I have to close my session and open it again to access the desktop because of an another black screen.

Do you have any idea what might cause the problem?
Thank you

1) Are you absolutely sure you installed the updates to the same folder as the game was installed?.

If you have an old CD version then the game will likely be in program files/... whereas modern installations of the game (and the patches) install to /shrapnel games/camo workshop/...

Ensure that you installed all to the common /shrapnel games/... folder - and not the old /program files/ folder, since Windows Vista and later mess with installations (especially patch updates) to that folder.

If your game is under /program files/... then uninstall it and reinstall it then its patches under the new scheme to C:\Shrapnel Games\The Camo Workshop\WinSPMBT


2) Are you running in full screen mode?. In windows 7 full screen mode a special script is run to kill explorer and its use of the 256 colour mode. I forget what the fancy screen mode 7 is called, its been so long since I upgraded to 8 and 10.

If so - run the game in Windowed mode at desktop resolution, and see if it works. This is the recommended way of playing for CD owners, full screen mode is a vintage mode only there from DOS days, it is no longer supported.

(However absolutely no changes have been made to the Windows 7 script since that was done several years ago. If it was working before then it should work now.)
