Default WinSPMBT Refitted To Version 3.5!
Press Release Teaser: New Patch Available For Immediate Download!   

News Release For Immediate Release


WinSPMBT Refitted To Version 3.5!
New Patch Available For Immediate Download!


Hampstead, NC, 01 May 2007

The Camo Workshop and Shrapnel Games would like to announce that a new patch is
available for WinSPMBT. The patch upgrades all versions (Enhanced CD edition or the
free download) to version 3.5 and is approximately 30 MB in size. It includes the
following changes to enhance your gameplay experience:

2 New scenarios and 2 updated scenarios
103 New photos, 153 new icons
92 Updated OOB files, 126 revised campaign files
159 Sound files in .wav format have been added
Upgraded CampaignHack and updated MOBHack

Additionally, the following specific changes have been made:

* Numerous OOB corrections/additions.

* A new Hovercraft class has been added by changing an unused unit class. Code has
been written to give hovercrafts more realistic capabilities in various terrains than was
the case previously. All Hovercraft icons have been redone, and new ones have been
added.

* A bug in CampaignHack that caused it not to transfer all moved files from one slot to
another has been fixed.

* There was a campaign code bug that prevented some players from deleting a
campaign core formation after purchase, this has been eliminated.

* "ARENA" now renamed "CIWS".

* Glider and Helicopter icons will now display better in the purchase and encyclopedia
screens.

* "Second Rate Company" formation is now called "Combat Group".

* All 5.xx LMG/SAW weapons that previously had an 8 hex range now have a 10 hex
range.

* The.mp3 sound files we introduced with the original release of WinSPMBT were still
giving some users trouble and so a full set of .wav files and a new sounds.ini file has
been included in the 3.5 patch. Once the 3.5 patch is installed the .wav files will be
the default sound files used by WinSPMBT. This brings WinSPMBT in line with
WinSPWW2 in that regard.

* There was a bug that allowed AA guns with an EW of 1-4 to deploy either "CIWS" or
"ARENA" missile defenses, this has been corrected.

The version 3.5 patch may be downloaded directly from Shrapnel Games by following

WinSPMBT is a tactical look at combined arms operations from 1946 until 2020 and is
one of the most comprehensive turn-based computer wargames available. Featuring
combatants from around the world, from first-rate militaries to tinpot dictator regimes, a
massive number of scenarios and campaigns, and supporting play by e-mail, WinSPMBT
is an armchair commander's best friend. And with an easy to use scenario editor, there is
literally no end to the amount of gameplay packed into WinSPMBT.

WinSPMBT is available in two forms from Shrapnel Games. Gamers can download the
game for FREE (and by free, that means free, no strings, no ads, just pure game) or
purchase the Enhanced CD edition for only $39.95. Why pay for something you can get
for free? It is called Enhanced for a reason.higher resolutions (up to 1600x1200!), more
secure PBEM slots, cut and paste map editor, encyclopedic sorting, and more!

For a complete listing of all our fine titles please visit us at www.shrapnelgames.com.
Fans of World War Two will want to check out WinSPMBT's sister game, WinSPWW2.
Covering both World War Two and the years leading up to it, it features all the greatness
of WinSPMBT, and is also available in both free and Enhanced versions. If you're a fan
of tactical combat get'em both and never leave your computer!

Default Re: WinSPMBT Refitted To Version 3.5!

Just a suggestion: (and I LOVE SPMBT)

I wish Shrapnel would approach EA games or somebody and come out with something along the lines and detail of SPMBT for the Xbox 360!! There are alot of us out there who are all grown up and play grownup sims(games) of the type that Shrapnel produces. Just look at Civilization Revolution and the plenty of RTS games out there (ok, CivRev published a little toned down and campy/cute but it's still basic CIV). I think a turn based modern warfare game with the stats and realism would do great on the 360.

Again, just a suggestion!!

Steel Panthers is a weird game in that alot of people have enjoyed the various versions over the past ten plus years and still do enjoy them. But absolutely zero Steel Panthers clone games have evolved. Camo Workshop is by far the leader as far as work consistantly being done to improve an old game.

I'd have to say though that it doesn't look good for additional games based on Steel Panthers. Matrix games laboured for years on Combat Leader (SP Clone) but ended up throwing it in the trash can. Thats a pity as it was to be the next generation of Steel Panthers games.
