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.

Sincerely,

Dave Mackey
