May 102018

Hi Everyone,

Its May 9th, 2018 (almost exactly a year after the release of version 2.00 [May 13th, 2017] – which in turn came 19 years after the previous release in 1998) and I am quite pleased to announce the release of Civil War Strategy Game Version 2.10!

This new release fixes several bugs that found their way into the 2.0 release as I moved the code from legacy QuickBasic to the more modern QB64. Among the bugs fixed:

  • Random events are back!
  • Some weird display issues are resolved!
  • The game shouldn’t occasionally crash!
  • The status box now actually is a box instead of the disjointed semi-box it was previously!

Ohh, and I’m sure there is more…but you get the idea.

Also, one important side note: once you’ve launched the game press Alt+F4 to make the game full screen…

Looking forward to diving back into the code and release another version much sooner after than this one followed 2.0.

  1. LOVE the game but Im using Windows 10 and no matter what I do the box WON’T maximize. HELP! I’ve downloaded a maximizer but to NO avail. Only way is when I enlarge the entire screen by the zoom and that’s annoying to me. HELP!

    • Hi Creighton! Please try pressing Alt+Enter while you have the game in focus. It should maximize on Windows 10 as I’ve been successfully using this keystroke combination on my system running the same.
