Stumbled up this great program through some war game forum or another. Lovely, very nice work. I just want to confirm as well that in VirtualBox (OSX) it simply displays a broken screen (half light brown, half window) and hangs everything.

I didn't expect it to work, but thought I'd let people know. VirtualBox does handle my other WW2 games (Firefight and WinSPWW2) OK so I was interested to see.

Can ClickTeams' Multimedia Fusion 2 IDE not yet save out Java versions that run in OSX? I recall hearing that they were working towards that and if so, it might be the cross-platform solution you need for this very nice game.

Again, lovely work (if I could only get it to run).

FIXED!!!! I downloaded the non hardware version and it runs smoothly and fine in VirtualBox now ... other OSX users see here ... http://www.thespiritengine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=2464#2464

Thanks DaveyJJ.

Unfortunately the back end to the game is an extension written in C++. I'm not sure how feasible a Java conversion is, but it might be a lot of work even if it is. The game's also reliant on DirectX9 for rendering - it's slow on both my netbook and desktop with software rendering.

I'll make the software-rendering version available shortly after the next release. If that doesn't fix the problem in VBox, it may be something connected to the windowing controls.

Thanks again,

Mark

No problem, Mark. I managed to get the a1.0.3 build running on a machine at work and wow, colour me impressed. Great job.
