Game upgrades like you describe would require a nearly total re-write of the game code and if we were going to do that it wouldn't be "SP" any more and there ABSOLUTELY would NOT be a "free" game.

You need to understand that WinSPWW2 and WinSPMBT are made by just a two man team that is basing their work on the old Steel Panthers 2 game released in 1996. That game engine is old and it has alot of limitations as to what can and can´t be done with it. Though I am amazed at how much they have been able to improve it.

i am not saying i want the game changed at all, i was just curious as to what the next step is to winspww2 and if they are any long term plans for it?
i have never played any other sp apart from this one and winspmbt so cannot compare them but as far as i have read here on the forum there has been alot of progression with the game.

keep up the good work

I for one am curious about the future of Don and Andy. You guys have been at it a long time - do you foresee retirement coming? What would become of the game after you guys are done with it?

The only engine improvement I would like to see...and have no idea if this could be accomplished, would be to update the graphics engine to support 24/32bit graphics instead of the current 8bit (I believe it is 8bit)....basically more colors for the map and units. Though sadly, I imagine if it were possible it would have already been done.

I am content with OOB fixes and minor corrections going forward. I am amazed that the team has been able to continue to improve and enhance the game beyond just these basic corrections with almost patch. Camo does an outstanding job.

The custom 256 colour palette is a central component of the game code. Changing that changes everything.
