Yeah same. I can't even minimize the game anymore. Also as I told you guys earlier for some reason in 1941 and 1942 sandbox Spain has a hostile relations to the axis powers, that shouldn't happen. Though Spain was neutral, spain had a good relation with the axis powers of atleast Italy and Germany - not sure about Japan. Furthermore nothing in 2017 and 2020 with regards to Saudia Arabia and Iran hostility as well as saudia arabia's alliance with other gulf states.

A truly magnanimous and important update, THANK YOU!

Strangely, in my year 1936 game Romania singlehandedly destroyed Germany, France, Poland, USSR and many other small countries without any help from the player (Switzerland). It is now the strongest country in the world xD The game was started with units, too.

Can we expect another update together with the release of Great War ? :)

I just want to add that my experiences with scrolling on the macOS version of SRU is not exactly amazing either. It is to the point where I would say my 2-3 year old netbook does a better job than my high-end 2016 macbook pro. I almost want to test it on my old 2007 macbook pro (yes it meets the listed requirements) just to see what difference it makes.

Window controls are also pretty much non-functional. Windowed mode does nothing and resolution is generally also ignored. Is it possible this has something to do with what resolutions SRU supports? I know I could create a few issues with monitor resolution in the windows version of 9.0.75 (I cannot remember the exact details but I think it was caused by running full screen with a different resolution than what the monitor was set to).
I am mostly suggesting this as the 2880x1800 resolution I run is not on the list of screen resolutions.

Pretty sure you got all but my last content pack which which if memory serves me right is 112 meshes total. No idea how many is actually added through default.unit though.

All 112 of your models shipped with the update. Though only 36 are currently enabled in the game.

Also we will look into the issues for Mac users. Once I have an update I will let you all know.

Still no fix for the silly campaign options bug that resets all options to default no matter what the player chooses? Is it ever gonna be fixed or should I just give up on playing the campaigns? :-(

When can we expect the rest to be enabled in game? If you don't plan on it being any time soon, maybe you could just specify what needs to be done (edit picnums, units file, etc.) so maybe we can do it ourselves if we can't wait :D

What exactly are you talking about here? I don't remember any reports of an issue like this. Is there a support thread about this? Have we issued a support ticket for this?

Everything is already done for them, they have entries in the picnum database. You just need to change a Units picnum to match the model you want and it should work.

Yes I did, you were the one to confirm the bug... I checked after the update and the bug is still there.

Thanks for linking to that thread. I've looked up the ticket and you are correct, it has not been addressed yet. I will bring it up again with the team.

I'm a huge fan of the game, but really disappointed with the update as it's making it unplayable. I have a couple questions before I list what is wrong (because you probably know already and I'd like to save you time)

1 I have it through steam, and on mac. Is there a way to re-download an earlier version so that I may play?

2 or, is there a way to uninstall the new version?


The issues I have been experiencing are the game runs in windows mode, regardless of setting choice; the mouse pointer does not line up with the graphics making it difficult to select units etc ; the game crashes when I am selecting multiple units and scrolling a long distance on the map;

Thank you for your attention and am hoping to be able to play again soon, as this is the ultimate war game
