Blitzkrieg 2 is a RTS located in WW2. As its predecessor and the similar Sudden Strike games, Blitzkrieg 2 focuses on the battles of World War II rather than real-time strategy aspects like base building and resource extraction. The game features many new features and units over its predecessor; the graphics engine is upgraded, allowing for full 3D and the game features over 250 units compared to Blitzkrieg's 200. The player has the ability to dig trenches, lay mines, resupply and repair units or call in air support but there are no resources. Virtually everything can be destroyed including buildings and bridges. Forests can be flattened by tanks or artillery. Each unit of a respective nation speaks its own language, adding immensely to the immersion. The game shipped with a mission and resource editors for users to create their own units and maps. The game contains five factions: Germany Soviet Union Great Britain and France Japan USA

This Patch does various balancing changes to the multiplayer
mode, fixes a problem with Async that could force a disconnect in
multiplayer mode and fixes a rare crash which some people where
getting.

After patching up, you may have a problem with the
starforce-copy-protection driver.

Why are (starforce)drivers
installed on my PC?

Some versions of StarForce Copy
Protection will install dedicated drivers on your PC. Those
drivers are necessary for the StarForce specific CD/DVD checking
procedure, only. They do not include any hidden functionality. The
drivers are active only at execution of the protected application.
StarForce constantly improves their drivers to keep them
compatible with the latest versions of Windows operating systems.
How to remove all
StarForce components from your PC:

Sometimes the un-installation
utility of the protected application does not uninstall all
StarForce drivers. The following procedure will ensure that all
StarForce related components are completely removed from your
system.

  • Download the StarForce Removal Tool as a ZIP archive.
  • Extract and store sfdrvrem.exe anywhere on your hard disk.
  • Run sfdrvrem.exe.

If the protected application requires a StarForce driver, this
driver will be re-installed as soon as you launch the application
again. For further help, please contact the helpdesk of the
application publisher.

There is a tool to get rid of starforce, because starforce does
not like vista and win7. download
starforce removal tool

You might too need a starforce free game.exe. be carefull
downloading this (all security up)
