This is free WWII RTS on an epic scale!

Whether you're commanding a platoon of infantryman or an entire armoured division with a friend, battles can be as small or as massive as you'd like (well, within some reason, of course). The only real limitation is what your opponent is ready for, and whether or not your computer can handle hundreds of infantrymen and dozens of tanks pounding the crap out of one another. :)

A note: we don't have singleplayer yet, so once you've installed, fire up SpringLobby and join us for a game or three (our channel is #s44, should be autojoined if you use the installer). Hope to see you there!

Hello all!

We have released a new major version of Spring:1944. This one is numbered 3.00 with codename Operation Frühlingserwachen and is based on the SpringRTS 103.0 engine. Operation Frühlingserwachen or "Spring Awakening" was a combined German and Hungarian counterattack in march of 1945 against the advancing Soviet troops near Lake Balaton [1].

Major changes since Spring:1944 2.0 "Operation Overlord" include:

  • two completely new sides: Hungary has been added to the axis factions and Sweden is available for those who would rather not pick sides in this war. Both factions are complete with their infantry, vehicles, towed guns, mobile and rocket artillery, aircraft, boats, tanks and more.
  • An "in-game"; faction picker widget. It is now possible to pick your faction when choosing the starting position
  • A preview version of a new AI called spammer was added to assist the C.R.A.I.G. AI in training you for multiplayer games. This one will throw units at your at breakneck pace from a big and scary Flakturm. Can you hold your ground against it? Install the game and find out!
  • Some units have received a graphics makeover in the form of new models and new skins. Build menu pictures have also been updated.
  • For those who have new graphics cards a new graphics makeover has been added in the form of SSAO, color correction and Cook-Torrance specular shader.
  • There are new units available for the 6 other factions:
    • US: M36 Jackson tank destroyer
    • JPN: Type 5 heavy tank destroyer (Na-To)
    • JPN: Busou Daihatsu Artillery Craft
    • JPN: JPNT14 torpedo boat
    • All: Scout cars have been added
    • All: long range guns (longer range howitzers)
  • A new match option called Spoils of War has been added, which spawns 1940 era French armor at flags. The first one to capture the flag gets it. hurry up!
  • Flags now display their value. As always, flags give you income with which you can build units and increase in value over time.
  • Fixed bugs:
    • #200: Engineer stop reclaiming after moving
    • #194: Planes dropping bombs from max altitude (out of flak guns range)
    • #192: Boatyards keep getting stuck
    • #189: Commando's smoke grenade consumes satchel charges
    • #188: Some rocket units (e.g Katyusha) not using ammo
    • #186: Game crash on S44 Test Version 4750-1ee74d4 with unit in boat
    • many many others
  • We are now reachable over Matrix as well: Riot.im

Should be resolved with more recent versions of the game available through the lobby, or new 2.0 build, and the current engine (100.0)
