Cold War in Europe - Modern Campaigns 4.04 Updates

Hi All,

We are continuing the update of the Modern Campaigns series to version 4.04.


Following on from the recent Middle East ‘67 upgrade we are releasing a further three Modern Campaigns titles with the new 4.04 version. This is the same version as the recently released title, Panzer Campaigns: Spring Awakening ’45 and our recent games of the week, Panzer Campaigns: Sealion ‘40 and Modern Campaigns: Middle East ‘67.

 The three titles updated today are Modern Campaigns: Danube Front’ 85, Modern Campaigns: Fulda Gap ’85, and Modern Campaigns: North German Plain ’85.



Please note, these are full installation builds. The reason for this is to align to the upgrades we released back in March here. There is no patch from the prior version available. If you already have a copy of any of these titles, the latest game build should be available now in your store account on the WDS website. You will have to uninstall any existing versions and then install the latest to be up to date.

 With the move to version 4.04, here are the following changes beyond version 4.03:

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a crash due to registry setting for the classic toolbar (which no longer exists).
  • Prevent Windows 11 CTD by replacing MCI audio with DirectSound on the Splash Screen.
  • Fixed a crash to desktop and game corruption when playing Network Direct Play.
  • Fixed a rare crash to desktop when Auto-Save was not selected.


  • Units are not penalised with night fatigue when moving by rail.
  • Dynamic NATO counter drawing on the Hex Info display. This is the same as the Panzer Battles implementation and the NATO counter on the unit card will highlight when appropriate.
  • New unit boxes to improve legibility of text.
  • New Unit box Back image to improve legibility of text.
  • Various scenario adjustments

 We expect to follow-up the three Modern Campaign European titles with updates for Modern Campaigns: Korea ’85 and Modern Campaigns: Quang Tri ’72 very soon.

Here are a few sample screen shots:


Beyond Modern Campaigns, all the Panzer Campaigns and First World War Campaigns series will be migrated across to version 4.04 and you can expect a steady stream of new versions over the next couple of months.

    Hey Rich

    Could we get some exact details on the " Various scenario adjustments" ? That can be a big deal IMO.
    I have been playing these titles from JTS day one of release and have found most to play pretty well as issued, also, I`ve been tinkering with several and have over 50 hours into those renamed scenarios.
    Thanks !

    I love the WW2 games and newer. I just wished that you were using the TalonSoft type of mouse commands. Easier for this old man to play. Also I have the Greatest Battles of the North Atlantic and can play that but am problems trying to play Kriegsmarine
