I guess this was due to results of the internal testing. GOG always makes extra sure that the games run on the vast majority of the systems, so who knows what issues they ran into. However, it might be worth a try to contact them directly. Schmatzler, can you do that?

I will contact GOG and Atari. Don't get your hopes up, though :P

I finally found the time to do this - I've contacted GOG about the DX8 patch and await a reply now. Here is my message:

To whom it may concern,

I'm writing to you on behalf of the Independence War community on i-war2.com.

One of the developers of the I-War games has stated in your forums, that a DirectX 8 patch for I-War 2 had been developed and finished, but it was never released.

He also wrote, that GOG has received a copy of this patch. I have two questions about that:

1. Why hasn't this patch been included into GOG's release of the game?
2. Would it be possible to receive a copy of this patch?

Kind regards,


I hope we'll get an answer. Of course, there's still Atari we can nag about this. :)

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

Alright, it's been two workdays and I didn't receive an answer.

I used the press contact email, since I didn't think standard tech support would help me here. I'll send the mail again to tech support as the last resort.

If there's no response, I'll try to find an Atari contact.

Maybe it's a good idea to nag them both at the same time. Also, I think it makes sense to nag them a few times in a row, hoping that eventually they'll be so annoyed that they either put you on a blacklist or finally answer your damned question. ^^
