World War II! The 2024 winSPWW2 Upgrade Patch is In!

Wilmington, NC, 09 May 2024

Another year and anither anticipated Upgrade, Fixes and Additions have arrived. This game is now in it's Twenty Sixth year with the release of WinSPWW2v17, bringing the total number of versions/upgrades of the game release to 38. Since the time the first tentative steps were taken to begin modding SP2 into a WW2 based game to today at least 9600 days have passed... that's over 7400 days longer than WW2 lasted. We say Impressive!

First, DO NOT apply the upgrade patches while in the midst of a secure PBEM game as the game will fail.

Available for immediate download, this patch is ready to run. So, let's take a look at what the great guys at Camo Workshop have given us...

The 2024 consolidation patch updates any version of winSPWW2 version 9 and up to version 17. winSPWW2 version 17.0 includes:

2 New Scenarios
16 Revised/Updated Scenarios
100 Updated Scenario txt files
1 New Campaign
1 Completely Revised Campaign- #13
114 New or Revised OOB Photos
43 Updated OOB files
14 New or Updated Graphic SHP files
35 New or Revised Vehicle/Aircraft Icons
35 New or Revised Encyclopaedia/Help Text files
1 New sound file
25 New complete or WIP maps

1. Two new standard infantry unitclasses (UC172 and UC179) replace the old Bicycle unitclasses that were no longer used and were of no real use in the game in their old form.

2. Electronic garbage was appearing along the left side of some maps. This has been corrected

3. All "cavalry" unit classes now behave the same way in the same terrain types.

You can download the upgrade here:

winSPWW2 is available as a fully featured FREE download. But the Enhanced Edition (Download only) is not different in the core gameplay, but provides a lot of extra bells and whistles for the Steel Panthers enthusiast. This game works with even the latest version of Windows.

Please Note: If you purchase the Enhanced Version today (or going forward), you will get the latest version and there is no need to patch this version.

Camo Workshop is hoping to release a winSPMBT update before the end of the year:
