an option in the setup to toggle the ddraw version would be great, like install by default but have a fallback that can be selected if it causes a problem. i know there's some concern about compatibility but ive recommended the version at en.war2.ru/ddraw dozens of times and never heard anyone come back saying they had a problem with it, whereas we know for a fact those substantial display glitches happen 100% of the time without it.

also a lot of interest in having the music & campaign briefings available :thumbsup:

& also adding in some new map packs like qanon said!

it does, but that uses the previous version of ddraw before the new version released by aqrit which fixes the icons in windows 7 + various black boxes/overlapping window glitches in windows 8/10. there were several different tweaked versions of it released but no real fully-tested-on-all-windows "finalized" version (iL says here that he uses different versions in different situations). however, ive been distributing i think the 3rd or 4th version on the website for ages & it's never to my knowledge caused a problem or failed to work for anyone, so it seems like the benefits of going ahead & rolling it out could potentially outweigh the drawbacks at this point
