Spanish language

As of today the Original-war.net website and forum is going to be served in English, Polish, Czech, French, Russian and SPANISH.


Although the only parts of the website that are currently translated are the interface, we will be working on bringing you as many articles of OW.net as possible in Spanish in addition to their English and Polish versions.

All thanks to Lengorio.

New Features - Regional sections

As you may know, OWN staff is working on improving our services for a multi-language community. After today's update you may hide regional sections, so - as we hope - using of forum.original-war.net would be more comfortable for you. Happy posting.

  • Bug Fix: Increased FPS in-game (Issue 54)
  • Bug Fix: RU09 - Epsilon mission - messed up dialogs after ammo research (Issue 55)
  • Bug Fix: RU11 - Beta base attack mission - Russian soldiers die sometimes during scouting (Issue 56)
  • Bug Fix: Bloody Valley - Tree (Issue 59)
  • Bug Fix: Windowex parametr: Window resizing & FPS drops (Issue 60)
  • Bug Fix: Ar and Ru can use partial invisibility (Issue 63)
  • Bug Fix: 11RU mission - bug? (Issue 67)
  • Bug Fix: Missing/incorrect voice for Burlak's dialogue in RU14a (English) (Issue 69)
  • Bug Fix: Joan Fergusson is available in RU15a when she should be dead (Issue 70)
  • Bug Fix: Spelling - Czech version (Issue 74)

While the OpenGL Renderer is not 100% complete the game is fully playable. The parts that are missing are: Credits, In-Game Help Screen (Its a manual built into the game) and the Graphs at the end of missions that show a timeline of when units were created/destroyed. The multiplayer map descriptions are missing scrollbars. Everything else should work fine.

The OpenGL Renderer requires a Graphics Card with OpenGL 2.0 support as a minimum. The Same Resolution option may run slow on older hardware such as a GeForce 5.

By default Original War will still use Direct Draw unless you select OpenGL in the launcher's configuration section.
