At the GWX site, I went ahead and downloaded all the parts for GWX. And all works great! Question is, is the patch to 1.02 needed or is the 700MB download all I need (as in 1.02 is already incorporated into the main download). or - what file can I right click on to find the current version number within GWX - if any?

If I sound really dumb here - it's probably because after 60 hour work weeks I am.
I have gotten so far with this Starforce thang that i don't want to mess up SH3 at this stage and have to (ugh) re-install.

Thanks again commrads!

There are a lots of changes, please refer to here:
http://www.users.on.net/~jscones/GWX/ChangeLog.html (http://www.users.on.net/%7Ejscones/GWX/ChangeLog.html)

I don't know about the version thing. All I know is when you play the SHIII - GWX, the version of GWX is on the loading screen. You can check it there.

If you use SH3 commander, and others mods too, you should read this thread frist, or you may have to re-install!

I downloaded GWX and later on patch 1.02 and all looks great.
I think it's better to patch 1.02 because some bugs are fixed and it incl. Hot Fix Release 23rd Dec !

see what was fixed - 1.02 manual

On the main screen you will see "v.1.02"

Thanks everyone!

Yeah, I just wanted to make sure. I see version 1.1a floating around but then there is the European version and the US release and then download (which I have since my DVD won't accept "the code" that came with it) and the DVD upgrade too.

I'll check for the version number on the splash screen! Thanks again all!

On my GWX splash screen as SH3 is loading I have nothing for version number, but on the main menu screen within SH3 I see v1.4 in the lower right. So I take it that it is seeing the stock version 1.4b upgrade I did and not the version 1.02 of GWX that I need to install then over top of my initial GWX installation...correct?

Danka!

I just didn't want to goof up GWX/SH3 up by doing something I shouldn't have. No, GWX works just as it should with SH3 so I'm going to go ahead and am installing 1.02 before I head off to work (like I should have done 10 minutes ago...but hey, priorities, right?)

Thanks!
