Last Update 17NOV06

The Star and the Crescent is the definitive treatment of the past half-century of war at the brigade-level and below.  It has all of the features which Armored Task Force and The Falklands War fans have grown to love.  But it also adds a ton of new features, including airborne and air defense radars, discreet buildings and other structures, and direct fire bursting munitions.  Click here to see more.

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.


The Star and the Crescent BETA Test Is Here!

The team has been assembled and is hard at working on the ground-breaking release.

The Star and the Crescent development team has completed work on the coding and is ready to begin post-production work. As part of this process, they have assembled a team of BETA testers to help eradicate bugs and make final tweaks to the interface.

Shrapnel Games has assembled a team of highly qualified gamers to complete play testing of this title.  In the meantime, we are hard at work on a free demo for download to anyone, to give you a taste of what's to come.  Stay tuned to this site and the Shrapnel Games homepage to find out as soon as the demo is released.


The Star and the Crescent website launched

The wargaming world is abuzz as this newest ProSIM Company game nears release.  In fact, we have had so many questions that we are launching a new website to track the development.

Stay tuned to the TSATC website for updates on the features that will be included in this ultra-realistic game.  We will be frequently posting updates on the production schedule, latest news, and press releases about the game.
