After over a year we are finally able to present to you the new version of spring:1944 2.0, operation overlord codenamed after the famous D-Day landing that changed the tide of WW2.

The big jump from 1.6 to 2.0 and being named after the biggest landing operation in history are rightfully deserved.

The major feature are 2 entirely new fully working factions italy and japan all with their own neat toys to stand toe to toe with our other 4 already existing factions, giving us 3 axis and 3 allies.

Italy sports mostly weaker assets compared to other factions, they are particularly vulnerable against vehicles.

Better late than never Better late than never

After lategame upgrades are purchased they can use either elite infantry or a large assortment of self propelled guns.

They are the only faction with alpine commandos that can climb almost any terrain and sneak past enemy lines where no other men can.

They also have access to large truck mounted anti tank gun to destroy tanks almost anywhere reliable at a high range.

Of course they have all the other kinds of weapons that an army needs.

Better late than never Better late than never

As for japan, being a naval based country they have subpar vehicles than others.

However the vehicle yard can be upgraded to produce amphibious units to make very efficient landings.
They also have a advanced 120mm cannon tank that can rip trough most armor in 1 shot.

The japanese main strength is their artillery, raging from small knee mortars for infantry squads, to a 200mm deployable infantry rocket mortar as well deployable field guns and howitzers.

Another interesting perk is the ability to build field tents that are invisible to the enemy and can produce basic infantry.

A major feature for all factions is that ship turrets are now individually controllable and have their own health making naval combat a lot more strategic.

And of course all the usual bug fixes, improvements, balance adjustments and whatnot.

Better late than never Better late than never

Okay, I doubt this is the place to put this, but I am a noob...

Every time that I try to start a game in the Spring lobby, the game gets to a loading screen after I push start, and then crashes back the the Spring lobby saying, "Spring has Crashed", and something like, "a stacktrace has been written to infolog.text". I looked around in that text file, but the computer's language is way beyond me, and I don't understand where the problem is. Does anyone have a possible solution?

I am using bots. The same problem for every mod I have. Only tried one map, but I doubt that's the problem.

The games for this look really fun...

Sorry to bore you, Thanks

Most of the bots are *A only. If you are playing BA, then try using RAI or KAIK. AAI usually doesn't work all that well.

There are a couple mod specific ais you could try to work with.

Try using RAI works best,everything thats JAVA AI or NULL something dont use those are just for testing only, anyways if the problem persists visit spring main website and post detailed information.

I must say you should try multiplayer its the best part of this game, there are a couple Ais,but essencialy you are looking at a epic multiplayer RTS experience.

Yes, you can. That said, the engine and changes you made to it must remain under the GPL.
