Did you apply the patch to the same path as the CD Extended game was originally installed to - if you have an old CD then the path is not the same and needs updating/changing manually.


Make sure all use:

C:\Shrapnel Games\The Camo Workshop\winSPWW2

Very old CDs may have C:\program files\Shrapnel Games\The Camo Workshop\winSPWW2 burned into the installer.

You dont want to install under the program files hierarchy post windows XP simce windows 7 and above will do strange things - as mentioned in the installing your game section of the Manual.

If your original game was installed to /program files/ then reinstall from scratch using the new path as noted above.

One reason for the game to stop playing full version that has cropped up before is if the MBT patch is done to WW2 (or vice-versa). In that case, you will have a lot of SPMBTSCNXXX files in your scenarios folder alongside your SPWW2SCNXXX. If that is the case - same action as below.

Deinstall and reinstall the game from scratch - firstly backing up any ongoing save games etc - see if that helps.

SPWW2 was patched to the correct folder, SPMBT was patched correctly to its own folder

Then I would do a deinstall and reinstall, perhaps after doing a disk check in case of any bad clusters etc.

Also - check what version the game returns on the main screen.

If it does not say "Extended" then you somehow haven't applied the latest patch correctly.

If it says "CD" then you are still on an old version (before we changed away from "CD" for the now-titled Extended version)

If it says "Free" or "DL" then you have installed the free demo game and not the extended game, somehow. Perhaps by using that installer instead of the patch. Free is the latest patch, CD is old style naming.
