Thought there was something like that, (sigh) back to the beginning again. Thanks for the quick response :)

Foolish me,I uninstalled my original Supreme Ruler 2020 and bought a copy of the gold addition. [_]O I certainly don't mind because that gives you cash to make more games for me to enjoy. Can't wait to pickup Cold War when its released.

Hmmmm ... I might be a little slow .... but what is new for those of us who already had version 7 ?

I have read the lists and cant really find something that I didnt think was already in the game ?

Dont get me wrong - I dont complain, its my favourite game of all time - but 11 hour working days makes me a little too tired to read between the lines...

not much, mostly housecleaning and "under the hood" stuff. Some map fixes. Command units won't go on Amphibious excursions anymore :)

Could someone remind me how to update it if I have the game on an external hard drive and play it through a computer? I managed to do the 5.0 update, but that was a long time ago, and I forgot how.

If you installed it on the computer all you need to do is run the update.

Question: If, in 10 year i want to update the cd/dvd version on my "windowsXP-box" or whatever, do i only need the 6.8.1 exe file, or do i need all prior updates to get to version 6.8.1?

6.8.1 contains all previous updates.

Something that I believe has been missed in previous comments, users should reset their options after installing the update.

I just want to say Thank You for giving me the gold edition which was impossible to get via ebay/amazon without paying a fortune.

Just some quick questions.

Is 2020 going to continue to be updated with cold war coming out?
Will another modern era version come out with a better interface, something more intuitive and informational?
Is cold war going to be compatible in any way with 2020 to where 2020 could make use of the newer coldwar interface ?

I'm more a fan of the modern era and the future when it comes to a game like this so I was just hoping to see 2020 get upgrades to it interface, graphics and all that as well =)

Unless something critical is found, I'm quite sure patch support is SR2020 is over, only technical help will still happen
Personally, I prefer modern day/future as well, but tbh, SRCW would be quite simple to mod for more modern day anyway (though time-consuming granted)

gotcha =) thanks for the info. Hopefully supreme ruler 2030 after cold war =) with more politics involved =) perhaps random events like *random country* refuses to stop nuclear program or something or other world events like genocides etc that would cause you to have to intervene. also an overhauled interface with more information, the ability to steal technology through espionage etc =) so much potential. This game could easily beat out any RTS out there but needs a great deal of small additions mostly in the information department for the player =)
