Fully agree with Dion. Have been playing Steel Panthers since it's highly-flawed DOS days and thanks to Andy and Don, CD game with v.09 upgrades is spectacular.

I'm posting this here as I noticed this minor problem once I upgraded to the ver 9 patch. This is a very minor visual problem.

When in the game, if I right click on an enemy unit, an info box is pulled up. At the bottom of this box, where armor values would be displayed, the rear hull armor value does not appear. If I select the "I" button, I'm taken to another screen that shows more info about the unit. On this screen, the info about the rear hull appears to be correct. I ran some tests shooting at the rear armor of various vehicles, and when I hit I do see the correct armor values for the rear hull when the penetration values appear at the bottom of the screen. So it looks like it's just a display issue. I am running at the larger font, so don't know if that has anything to do with it.

I'm not asking for this to be fixed, and I'm definitely NOT complaining ;^) Just thought I would mention it before the final version of this game is sent to the Wargame Hall of Fame ;^)

PS Just noticed if I pull up the info on my units (by hitting the space bar) that the armor values for the rear hull appear noticeably farther away from icon that before the patch. I was using the larger font for the last few months, before the ver 9 patch.

And in case you need more info, running this game on my 16" Toshiba laptop, Windows 7, full screen (not windowed) display, 1366x768 resolution, and I have the CDs, not the free version of the game.

PPS Just noticed it with the WW2 version also, so if it's just a problem with my system, at least it's consistent ;^)

I get the same thing Steves describes with the armor values drifting off to the right overlapping another part of the box.
It doesn't interfere with the game and I do like the more easily read screen.

I moved the armour markers out a bit to accommodate larger Icons. I had found a number where the armour numbers were set up more for average sized Icons and I moved them out a bit to balance things a bit better.

Unfortunately it looks like I didn't double check the enemy info mini screen , concentrating on the player unit screen and I'm betting when I investigate further the front hull numbers going to be about 10 pixels out so I need to either move the hull and numbers over a bit or just go back to the old numbers.....BUT .....ATM I don't recall if there are screens sharing those numbers or if they are all independent... sharing is definitely a possibility.

It is, as you say. a minor thing but it will be corrected in the next patch. I don't think anyone wins or losses a game on the front hull armour values shown in enemy mini screen but rest assured I *WILL* fix this

Don, as punishment for your niggling oversight you are hereby sentenced to three lashes with a wet noodle. Sentence is suspended due to your tireless devotion to this magnificent game and its grateful--if at times querulous--legion of grizzled grognards.

It's good to have you back. Cheers, Jon

FYI there will be an winSPMBT ver 9.1 version of the consolidation patch issues sometime early May 2015 to correct the issues noted since the ( necessarily.....) hasty release of 9.0 in early April.

When it is ready we will post a notice of it's availability and the changes made

Is there an opportunity to submit scenarios to be included as part of the official release?

This is a fix-up release, so probably no. We are working to get them out the door, and new stuff is not really much of that process.

Put them in the scenarios folder, and maybe if Don is felling up to adding them (e,g, have they been user tested?), then maybe, just maybe. But probably not.

Otherwise they will be considered for a future patch.

cheers
Andy
