winsbmt 2019 patch
« on: April 01, 2019, 08:13:03 PM »
sounds like this years update coming soon along with the wwii version.  developers also announced taking a break from updates and will minimally skip 2020 and decide the future after that.  although i joke about shrapnel all the time, these guys have put many years of effort into these games.

These devs have done an incredible job and shown amazing dedication to this title.  Quite a feat to keep a title this ancient alive, growing and improving each year while adapting to new OS's and technical changes/challenges to keep it playable for us.  I definitely appreciate their hard work on this old crusty friend.
Kind Regards,
Harry

I'm seriously thinking about picking this up again as I wait for the new Steel Tigers...which may never come out. Are the graphics improvement noteworthy? I only had the old 800x600 version.

I applaud anyone who can play a game with graphics like that. I just can't look at the screen with those graphics. Makes my eyes bleed.

Great game in it's day, but needs a serious graphics overhaul before I'd ever put it on my disk again.

...Only if you purchased the CD version.   To me it is playable and looks good enough in higher resolutions.  At 800x600 or below it is not really tolerable for me (...and I love the game).  The major issue is the color palette and it being locked to 8bit.  Unfortunately they do not have rights/access or some such to alter that part of the code.  In the last update they added additional zoom modes so that helps as well.

I agree but the 800x600 res lock on the free version on larger monitors is pretty hard on the eyes.... which is why I picked up the CD version of both  \m/

Totally acceptable to me, but I do have the CD version where you can get higher res.  Certainly never going to match today's graphics standards, but for how old this game is, think it has held up good enough.

^ That looks great to me!  Oldschool graphics have their charm.  Can't wait to get my CDs in the mail.   O0

Completely agree getting the CD version if you like the game. The higher resolution makes the way easier and more fun to play. No regrets for me.
