I received a very friendly reply from Stephen Robertson:
Hi Ronny,

Thanks for the kind words and many many thanks for keeping the I-War community alive!

I did offer the I-War directX8 patch to GOG, but they didn't want it at the time. I supplied them nearly all of their supplemental materials though, including high quality versions of the soundtrack which they were very pleased to receive.

I'm happy to give the patch to GOG if they want it but reluctant to just release it to the community as I do not own the rights.

If GOG/Atari say it's ok to distribute then I'd be happy to give it out.

However last time I tried the patch (some time ago) it didn't render all the DirectX8 effects correctly. Now that Nvidia has fixed some of the I-War 2 rendering issues maybe it'll work, but there's a chance it won't work properly on modern hardware.

Best regards,

--- Steve

I will contact GOG again and ask them if they want the patch now, so maybe we can get it released with the game.

If they don't want that, maybe Atari will be friendly to us? :) We'll see.
Proud to have taken over. Suggestions? Shoot me a message :)

Very little about the game is not known to me. Any questions you got, throw them at me. :)

Did GOG ever get back to you on this?

Sorry for the late reply,

I didn't get any further replies from the GOG team and since I didn't have much time for this website there was no further contact.

Maybe I'll get into it again, but I don't have high hopes. Atari couldn't care less and Stephen mentioned that the patch was broken last time he tested it, so GOG is probably not interested. :(
