Fixing this bug - which has been there for like ages - is not worth loosing the Mac players. The playerbase is already small

Mac Players with friends.

I had recently gotten into Wargame again, and I have about 4 friends I play with. But I have a mac and all 4 of them have a PC. What can I do?

Please revert the Windows version to the prior patch.

It must've been obvious this patch would create a rift, so at least put the issue to a vote before you unilaterally alienate part of your dedicated fanbase. I've logged over 400 hours, and not encountered the exploit once. Two players with similar hour counts shared the same experience with me too. This patch appears to have done more harm than good.

As for compatibility...what business cost do you incur by just keeping the game in its current state? RD is ancient and almost all of its substantial issues have already been fixed, for all platforms. I can't see how you'd incur ANY future costs on Mac/Linux compatibility when you could just keep the game in its current, very serviceable, state.

In the event it's not what I think it is, please explain what you mean by "teleporting infantry exploit" .
Thank you.

Dang I won't be getting the patch. It feels as if I bought the game from some sort of apple like store and just getting shafted for owning a digital copy of a game ;).
Can't say it wasn't fun :) my pc won't be switching OS anytime soon. Guess that means I can't cross platform on Red Dragon.

Please, we would like the instructions to downgrade the patch for windows.
We are a mixed group with Apple and Windows and we don't want to stop playing. :?

That makes me really sad.

I am a Linux user.
I have bought all games and DLCs in the Wargame franchise. I play casually and only online. Wargame RD has been my most played game for the last years. I really enjoyed it.

Please explain what is this "Infantry exploit" that will bring an end to this!

Also would you be so kind and explain what the technical difficulties in your toolchain are. Maybe we can help.
DLC #2: UI usability improvements in the game menus.

Maybe just buy Total War 3 kingdoms. They seem to know how to develop for linux. It's not like it's overpriced.

Awh this destroyed the sandbox mod, Do you have an idea what went wrong? Is it just the version number?

I find this news devastating. Locking out Mac & Linux players from pretty much all multiplayer matches , Just makes me feel screwed over. I understand that as of right now you cant find a better solution, but on Steam if you could add the ability to opt to the older version like with hoi4, that would ease the pain that many of the Mac and linux player such as myself feel. if its possible, I would at least like to be able to play with my friends again.
