Guys - got this from Rich Hamilton today:

--------------------

XP is completely dropped as of now. All future updates and new games will not support it.

John generally doesn't recompile a game when new updates are released, so most installers are several revisions behind the patches available. So if someone is worried about XP they need to grab and archive all the updates now. Its already too late for the PzC series, but all the rest are still XP compatible.

--------------------

So this means that any older installer will still install on XP but the updates that come out post-RBR will not work on that OS. You can continue to use older updates "Pre-RBR."

The entire Panzer Campaign series is out using the "non-XP" updates. Anything coming out now will not work on XP.

So if you use XP and dont want to upgrade to Windows 7-10 save your installers and updates for now. When you upgrade your PC or buy a new one you will be able to use anything that comes out from JTS.

Hope that clarifies what is going on following the Panzer Campaigns updates and RBR release.

As there will be no more updates for JTS games released via HPS Simulations this does not apply to those. If you wanted to use just the HPS version with the latest update they have you still can. You just will have to find opponents that have the older update/installer as well so that you dont have issues with your games.

*** if this post could be made a sticky it will help avoid folks having to answer this question over and over again.
