Updates for All of our ATF Engine Titles!

Upgrades Available at Shrapnel Games website!


As we went through the development cycle for Air Assault Task Force, and took what was best from the ATF Engine, we identified a few things we could "police up" in the ATF Engine games. As we have completed development of Air Assault Task Force, we are now able to release all of these improvements to our earlier games, as free upgrades.

These are all cumulative upgrades, so you do not have to install previous upgrades. They are included in these new upgrades.

Below are the links for the downloads page for each title. See those pages, and the "Read Me" file for each game, for a list of the major upgrades in each title.

Armored Task Force
Version 1.08

Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War
Version 1.17

The Falklands War: 1982
Version 1.24

The Star and the Crescent
Version 1.33

Installing Multiple Titles in the Same Folder

As a reminder, for all of those who install all of the games on top of one another (to permit playing of older scenarios in the newer engine), you will need to reinstall the release versions of the games as well. Use this install order (omitting any titles you don't have--shame on you--and their respective patches).

ATF -> ATF Upgrade -> RT -> RT Upgrade -> TFW -> TFW Upgrade -> TSATC -> TSATC Upgrade

When you get Air Assault Task Force, you can install it on top of all of these previous games, and play all of the older scenarios in the AATF Engine, complete with the upgrades it provides.

Enjoy!

ProSIM Company announces The Falklands War: 1982.

Slated for release in early 2004, ProSIM and Shrapnel Games take you back in time to the amphibious invasion of these South Atlantic islands.

The Falklands War took place in 1982 and began when Argentina invaded the islands on April 2nd. The conflict lasted until June 13th, which saw the British forces victorious and the Falklands recaptured. The war itself was a curious mixture of modern, high-tech warfare (the sinking of the H.M.S. Sheffield due to an Exocet attack) and low-tech, in your face battles that could have taken place in any conflict over the past fifty years. The British were outnumbered on the ground, and were for the most part without true air cover, having only the aircraft that came with the task force. The amphibious operations were a potential disaster, as the landing fleet had been rapidly assembled for the upcoming conflict, with many of its members originally destined for the scrap yard. Yet training and valor carried the day, and in the end the British took the islands back and captured over 11,000 prisoners.

ProSIM's The Falklands War: 1982, will allow players to examine all facets of the conflict, from amphibious operations (made manageable by their relatively small scope) to naval warfare and special forces. Due to the nature of the war the game is well suited for portraying small unit combat and tactics, something which will be familiar to veterans of ProSIM's other products. Some of the game's highlights include:

  • Wage an entire war but at a small scale. Units vary in size from brigade to company level, with battalion sized amphibious operations possible.
  • Full featured naval integration: naval gunfire support, amphibious vehicles, landing craft, aircraft carriers, and more.
  • Extensive unit list of fixed wing and rotary aircraft, including the famous carrier- based Harrier jumpjet.
  • Highly precise maps have always been a hallmark of ProSIM games, and The Falklands War is no different. Period correct and digitally accurate British maps of East and West Falklands will be used to game on.
  • The chance to explore hypothetical situations such as the use of heavy armor on both sides.

The project lead, Gary Bezant, currently resides in the U.K. and has twenty-three years of military experience as an artillery officer. A longtime wargamer and history buff, Gary brings his expert knowledge of British military history to ProSIM and the game itself.
