New Warzone 2100 Update


Seems to be some misunderstanding about the microsoft store release.

  1. source code is direct from updated source on warzone 2100 Github site. so the game is the most updated.
  2. Version number that was listed as 1 was not version of the game, but version of the package. But I’am in the process changing this. more of a problem with the submission process then on my side.
  3.  If you dont want to pay the .99, and thats fine, it just helps pay my website fees, but its also listed here on this site for free.

This one is built from Linux Cross compile for windows.
and has working Languages.

Build 2017: Sparking the next wave of creativity with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

By  / Executive Vice President, Windows and Devices Group

Today, at Build 2017, we announced the next wave of Windows 10 innovations built to empower the creator in all of us – the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Available later this year, the Fall Creators Update delivers new experiences for more than 500 million Windows 10 devices: A new design system for the next wave of creativity across devices; experiences that move with you across Windows, iOS, and Android; iTunes, Spotify, SAP Digital Boardroom are coming to the Windows Store; new tools that make Windows home for all developers; and the world’s first Windows Mixed Reality motion controllers – no markers required.

The spirit of creativity lives in each of us. So often our lives are changed by creating something out of nothing, from a big idea, a dream, or just a simple thought.

Like the incredible developers here at Build, I experienced my own personal creativity in software development. I remember what it was like to wait as my code compiled, then seeing it come to life on the screen for the first time. There is an amazing feeling of creativity that comes from software development. I love seeing that spark of creativity in our Windows developer community.

The Windows 10 Creators Update began rolling out last month to more than 500 million Windows 10 devices around the world. It’s exciting to see more than 300 million people using Windows 10 every day for more than 3.5 hours a day on average. With all of this engagement, we’re most proud that Windows 10 customers have higher satisfaction than any previous version of Windows ever. 

Today, I am pleased to introduce the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update – coming later this year.

Windows Story Remix: A new way to transform your photos and videos

To give people a sense of what’s possible with the Fall Creators Update, today we unveiled Windows Story Remix. Built on .NET and distributed through the Windows Store as a Universal Windows Application, Story Remix uses AI and deep learning to organize and transform your photos and videos into stories. It will use the Microsoft Graph to connect you and your friends across devices. Story Remix brings your memories, or even your friends’ photos and videos together to create stories with a soundtrack, theme, and cinematic transitions. You can also create mixed reality by adding 3D objects to your photos and videos to tell stories in a whole new way or turn your photos and videos into your canvas, drawing on them with Windows Ink.

Here is a peek into what you can expect from Windows Story Remix.

Introducing a new design system for the next wave of creativity across devices

Today, there are many devices and platforms competing for our attention. We read the morning news on our tablets, check email on our phones, and use our desktop PCs at work. These devices all behave differently and fulfill different needs. From large screens to no screens, they rely on touch, ink, voice, gaze, and gesture. Every day, developers also face the challenge of a multi-device, multi-interaction world, and we are committed to simplifying this world with a modern Microsoft design system.

I am excited to announce the next step in the evolution of our design approach: Microsoft Fluent Design System. Fluent Design will deliver intuitive, harmonious, responsive and inclusive cross-device experiences and interactions. For developers, Fluent Design is built to help you create more expressive and engaging apps that work across a wide range of device and input diversity. Take a look.

Windows experiences move with you across Windows, iOS, and Android

The Microsoft Graph is an intelligent fabric that helps connect dots between people, conversations, projects, and content within the Microsoft Cloud – ensuring experiences flow seamlessly between Windows, iOS, and Android devices. Getting things done across all the devices you use should be easy. That’s the principle behind several of the new features that will begin to roll out with the Fall Creators Update – leveraging both the new Fluent Design System and the intelligence of the Microsoft Graph.

  • Timeline: With Timeline in Windows 10, you can now jump back in time to find what you were working on. With a visual timeline that displays what you were doing when, you can easily hop back into files, apps, and sites as if you never left.

  • Pick Up Where You Left Off: With Cortana*, you can pick up where you left off across Windows, iOS, and Android devices. Imagine logging off your PC and having the doc you were editing pop up on your phone. Cortana asks if you want to pick up where you left in your app, doc, or website. It’s like having your PC and your phone finish each other’s sentences.

  • Clipboard: Clipboard is a fast and easy way to copy and paste just about anything between connected devices, whether you’re on a Windows PC or your favorite mobile phone. Just hit copy on what you want to grab – your photo, map link, paragraph, or even an animated gif- and it is ready to paste into whatever you want. It’s the Clipboard you know and love, now cloud-powered.
  • OneDrive Files On-Demand: Access all your files in the cloud without having to download them and use storage space on your device. You don’t have to change the way you work because all your files – even online files – can be seen in File Explorer and accessed on-demand whenever they are needed. To learn more about this, visit the OneDrive Blog.

The Windows Store: The best place for continuous delivery of your apps

With Visual Studio and the Windows Store, we now have a comprehensive workflow solution for apps to be built, tested, and published to any platform with an unmatched feedback cycle to drive love and engagement. This includes consumer apps and commercial apps—inside and outside the enterprise.

Today, we announced that full UWP capabilities are coming to Visual Studio Mobile Center this fall through automated build support and a full range of Windows devices available in our test cloud. For consumer apps, we added 35 new payment instruments this year and now support payments in 247 markets globally. We have also seen monthly in-app purchase sales double year over year in the Windows Store.

Welcoming iTunes and more apps to the Windows Store

Just last week we announced Windows 10 S —where apps take center stage. We believe people will love the simplicity, security, and superior performance of Windows 10 S. And there has never been a better time to bring your apps to the Windows Store.

When we unveiled Windows 10 S, Spotify announced that it is bringing its app to the Windows Store. And today we’re announcing more popular apps coming later this year:

  • iTunes: iTunes is coming to the Windows Store by the end of this year. Windows users will get the complete iTunes experience, including Apple Music and the iTunes Store, as well as support for iPhone and other Apple devices on any Windows 10 or Windows 10 S PC.
  • Autodesk: When Autodesk introduced their UWP SketchBook last summer it became their fastest growing new platform introduction with an average of 35% sales growth every month throughout 2017. Autodesk SketchBook, the de facto application for painting and drawing, was built from the ground up as a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app leveraging the pen and touch capability of Windows 10. Autodesk will continue to use UWP to extend their Windows Store offerings to include support for Windows Mixed Reality in Autodesk Stingray, a 3D game engine, and real-time rendering software.
  • SAP Digital Boardroom: SAP will bring SAP Digital Boardroom to the Windows Store this month. SAP Digital Boardroom is one of the most popular solutions from SAP. It is a next-generation board portal which leverages data from lines of business applications to provide a single source of truth for executives to steer the business in real time. The app was submitted to the Windows Store as a Progressive Web App. This allows SAP to reuse their web content and investments to target multiple platforms, while at the same time take advantage of deeper integration with Windows 10.

Making Windows home for all developers

We know how important it is for developers to have the right tools that get out of the way so creativity can flow. We’re inspired to make Windows and Visual Studio the best home for all developers–not only for applications on Windows but app experiences that span across all platforms and all devices.

First, we want to help the developers who have bet on Windows to make the most of the code they already have, by simplifying and modernizing their code base to more easily take advantage of innovation and drive cross-platform engagement. To do that, today we announced .NET Standard 2.0 for UWP and XAML Standard are both coming later this year.

Second, with modern code, developers can take advantage of Windows and the Microsoft Graph, using Project Rome for UWP, Android, and now iOS.

Third, last year at Build we unveiled the first tech preview of Bash on Ubuntu for Windows. We were blown away by the enthusiasm and excitement from the community. Today, we announced that we’ve simplified the install of Ubuntu by bringing it to the Windows Store. We also announced we are working with SUSE Linux and Fedora Linux running on the Windows Subsystem for Linux— to bring them to the Windows Store. Now, Windows is the only platform that can run both Windows apps and Linux apps side-by-side.

We also announced we are working with SUSE Linux and Fedora Linux running on the Windows Subsystem for Linux— to bring them to the Windows Store. Now, Windows is the only platform that can run both Windows apps and Linux apps side-by-side.

Fourth, we introduced the Xamarin Live Player to enable you to build, test, and debug your iPhone applications from your Windows PC. With the Xamarin Live Player, all you need is Visual Studio and an iPhone to build native apps for iOS in minutes.

Finally, part of empowering every person on the planet to achieve more is creating experiences for people of all abilities. There are more than one billion people with disabilities in the world, we have been working to make it easier for all of us to develop for people with all abilities. Today, I was proud to share Narrator in Debug Mode so developers can build for a more inclusive set of customers without leaving the dev environment.

Kevin Gallo will take a deeper dive into the developer news from today with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and why Windows is home for all developers, learn more here.

Introducing the world’s first Windows Mixed Reality motion controllers – no markers required

Today, we were inspired by the magic of Cirque du Soleil and how they’re using Windows Mixed Reality to transform the way they imagine and create shows. In order to demonstrate the creative decisions, they have to face, they rebuilt a virtual version of the stage from the show Kurios, including its famous huge mechanical hand.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will also see the magic of mixed reality brought to consumers around the world. We are working with developers to create this new frontier in computing and want any developer to get a Windows Mixed Reality dev kit. Due to wide interest from the community, I’m excited to share developers in the US and Canada can pre-order an Acer ($299) or HP ($329) headset starting today from the Microsoft Store for delivery later this summer.

Acer Windows Mixed Reality dev kit.

In addition to the first availability of dev kits for purchase, we also unveiled the first Windows Mixed Reality motion controllers with no markers required.

A customer who pairs a Windows Mixed Reality headset with motion controllers will have a rich and immersive experience across creativity tools, productivity, games, and entertainment. The motion controllers offer precise and responsive tracking of movement in your field of view using the sensors in your headset. There is no need to install hardware on the walls around you. We created the controllers as a high-quality and comfortable input device with the same ease of setup and portability as our headsets. Our device partners plan to market and sell these controllers on retail shelves this holiday.

OneDrive Files On-Demand—access all your files without using up your device storage

Introducing OneDrive Files On-Demand and other features making it easy to access files

Today’s post was written by Jeff Teper, corporate vice president for the Office, OneDrive and SharePoint teams.

As people create and collaborate on more files, take more photos and work across multiple devices, it’s increasingly important to access your important content, both from your work and personal life—all in one place. You shouldn’t have to worry about whether there is enough storage on your device or if you can access your files on an airplane.

Today, we are excited to share a set of new features that will allow you to see and access all your files on Windows 10, be more productive offline on your mobile devices and quickly share files on iOS.

OneDrive Files On-Demand—access all your files without using up your device storage

At Microsoft Build 2017, Joe Belfiore announced that the new OneDrive Files On-Demand feature will be delivered with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. With Files On-Demand, you can access all your files in the cloud without having to download them and use storage space on your device. You don’t have to change the way you work, because all your files—even online files—can be seen in File Explorer and work just like every other file on your device.

Files On-Demand also allows you to open online files from within desktop or Windows store apps using the Windows file picker. Simply select the file you want to open in the file picker, and the file will automatically download and open in your app. Furthermore, you’re covered in both your home and professional life since it works with your personal and work OneDrive, as well as your SharePoint Online team sites.

This has been the #1 requested feature for OneDrive on UserVoice, and we’re excited to deliver it in a simple and powerful new way.

You can see that the folder selected in the SharePoint Online team site contains 1.37 TB of content but takes 0 bytes of storage on the disk.

New status icons in File Explorer make it easy to know whether your files are locally available or online files. For files that you need to access when you don’t have an internet connection, you can easily make files or folders always available by right-clicking and selecting Always keep on this device.

Right-click and select Always keep on this device to make files and folders accessible when you do not have an internet connection.

Online files will automatically download and become locally available when you need them. Simply double-click a file in File Explorer or open it from within an app. Your online files will always be visible even if you are offline. Now you won’t have to make tough decisions about which files to sync to your PC.

Double-click an online file and it will automatically download and open.

In addition to users, Files On-Demand benefits organizations and IT admins. Today, when someone syncs a SharePoint Online team site, files are re-downloaded on all synced devices when anyone makes a change. Files On-Demand will reduce network bandwidth by eliminating the need to continuously sync shared files on every synced device as teams collaborate.

Files On-Demand is coming to Windows Insider Preview early this summer and will be publicly available with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Tune in to the SharePoint Virtual Summit on May 16, 2017 to learn more about Files On-Demand and how to create a connected workplace in Office 365 with OneDrive and SharePoint.

OneDrive Offline Folders—save entire folders for offline access on Android and iOS

In addition to Files On-Demand, we want to share a new feature with you to help you stay productive on your mobile device when you don’t have an internet connection, like on those long flights or weekends up at the cabin. OneDrive Offline Folders lets you save folders to your mobile device and open them when you don’t have an internet connection. Changes made by other users to the files while you’re offline will automatically be updated when you have an internet connection again. This new feature is now available on Android devices to Office 365 Personal and Home subscribers and OneDrive business accounts. We expect to roll it out to iOS in the next few months.

Select a folder and click the Parachute icon to make a folder and its contents available offline.

OneDrive for iMessage—quickly share OneDrive files on iOS devices

With OneDrive for iMessage, we made it even easier to share files on your iOS devices by allowing you to quickly share documents and photos with friends and family without leaving your iMessage conversation. Choose to share an entire folder or only a file and instantly preview documents and photos shared with you in iMessage. Update to the latest version of OneDrive and enable OneDrive for iMessage on your device to try today.

Open OneDrive in iMessage and click a file to share it in your conversation.

Let us know what you think. Please share your thoughts and ideas through the Microsoft Technical Community and UserVoice. There’s so much more to come with OneDrive!

Windows is home for developers with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

It was an amazing day today at Build 2017. With the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, we continue to grow the Windows platform so that Windows is homefor all developers. As I reflect on the day, I want to highlight how Windows and VS are creating the best end-to-end development process and enabling developers not only to maximize their code reuse, but also to create experiences that are engaging, powered by intelligence and connected across devices.

.NET Development Improvements

With today’s announcement that .NET Standard 2.0 for UWP and XAML Standardwill be coming later this year, .NET is now the most complete cross-platform development framework.  This combination, along with Visual Studio, makes it easier than ever before to write fully native and full-featured apps for all your target platforms in C#, including Windows, iOS, Android, Linux and, of course, the cloud!

.NET Standard 2.0 and XAML Standard

.NET Standard 2.0 is expanding the UWP surface by over 20,000 APIs to make sure your code is more interoperable than ever. We also know that about 70% of NuGet packages are API compatible with .NET Standard 2.0. Your most requested APIs for UWP, such as Reflection and SqlClient, will be fully accessible to you from the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. In addition, XAML Standard allows you to keep much of your UI code common and still maintain a native look and feel across Windows, iOS, and Android. Your experience on Windows will automatically provide Fluent UI and all input interaction models for free.  Our goal is to unify our XAML dialects across UWP XAML and Xamarin Forms, making cross platform development easier than ever. We encourage you to give us direct feedback in the GitHub repo – http://aka.ms/xamlstandard.

Microsoft Graph and Creating Connected Experiences

We are connecting Windows to the Microsoft Graph, enabling amazing new Windows shell features such as Timeline, Cloud Clipboard, and Pick up Where I Left Off (PWILO). And you can use the same APIs to enhance your own applications too.

Devices in the Microsoft Graph

Using the Microsoft Graph API, you can now access your all of your users’ devices, enabling you to break down boundaries between devices. You can call apps and app services on each device, allowing for cross-device coordination of experiences.

Activities in the Microsoft Graph

Starting with the Windows Fall Creators Update, we are releasing the UserActivity APIs, enabling you to drive engagement in your apps, across devices and platforms. A UserActivity is the unit of user engagement in Windows, and consists of three components: a deep-link, visuals, and metadata. When a UserActivity session is created by an application, it accrues engagement records as users interact with the application.

You can download the ‘Project Rome’ SDK for Android and iOS over at GitHub.

Adaptive Cards

Activities in the Microsoft Graph provide a great way to store and track your activity across all your devices. Being able to visualize those activities is a critical part of the experience your customers will expect. Adaptive cards provide developers a visualization, using an open format, that works across multiple applications and experiences. The visualization for all the activities in the Timeline is provided by attaching an adaptive card to the activity using the Project Rome APIs. Adaptive cards are based on a JSON schema that enables app/content providers to have a rich visualization surface that can be represented in numerous experiences. The experience that hosts the card has control over exactly how the card is represented so that the card feels like a natural extension of the UI of the host app.

You can find all the latest info on adaptive cards at http://adaptivecards.io

Microsoft Fluent Design System

With the Fluent design system, we are taking a significant step forward in re-envisioning the way we develop the next generation of apps and experiences that translate seamlessly and naturally across devices. Our world is increasingly being driven by multiple devices – phones, tablets, PCs, game consoles, mixed reality headsets, etc. We don’t use just one device, we use many, and we’re constantly expressing ourselves by creating and consuming content across them. Each of these devices behaves differently and fulfills different needs. Some rely on touch and ink, some read our voices and gestures. It’s because of this world we live in today that Microsoft is making a big investment in our design system.

Fluent Design enables the creation of more expressive and engaging experiences that work continuously across devices—from large screens, to small screens, to no screen—all in a way that will drive higher engagement and love for your apps.  There are 5 fundamentals to Fluid design system – light, depth, motion, materials and scale. All of these join together in concert to give us the capabilities to build immersive, rich apps that scale continuously across the device ecosystem:

  • Light – Light helps enable the ability to draw someone’s attention, or more clearly guide them through their navigations
  • Depth – Depth helps us understand how things relate to each other when they’re within a more layered, physical environment
  • Motion – Motion is a powerful way to establish context and imply relationships between content in natural, subtle and delightful ways
  • Material – Material can help take full advantage of the available screen space to celebrate content. It can also bring a sense of lightweight, ephemeral user experience
  • Scale – Scale allows us expand our toolbox for more dimensions, inviting innovation across new device form factors

You can learn and get more familiar with Fluent at http://dev.windows.com/design.


Testing and a secure deployment system is critical, so I’m particularly excited by Visual Studio Mobile Center, which allows you to have a CI/CD pipeline for UWP (in addition to iOS and Android) and integrates with our Store to make publication and distribution of your apps a breeze! We are also adding Windows devices to our test cloud, to enable developers to see how the app will look on the various devices and to help find issues before publishing.

Windows is the ultimate dev box

Our ambition is to make Windows the best dev box – for any dev, writing any app, targeting any platform.

Last year at build, I announced that bash was coming to Windows through the Windows Subsystem for Linux. We heard your feedback that deployment was a bit challenging, so we are streamlining deployment to come directly from the Windows store. In addition, we are working with Suse and Fedora Linux to enable multiple Linux distributions to run simultaneously. On top of these additional distros, there are loads of improvements under the hood, such as USB device communications support (e.g. deploy your Raspberry Pi bits via USB from Bash), USB drive mounting (for FAT32/exFAT/NTFS formatted USB drives), network share mounting, improved network configuration sync between Windows and Linux, and deeper syscalls to improve the breadth and depth of WSL’s compatibility with Linux apps.

In addition, there’s now the Xamarin Live Player which allows you to deploy, run, test and debug iOS apps directly from a Windows PC. Never before have you been able to build for so many platforms on one dev box!

Getting started now

Finally, I love seeing what our developer community can create, and the amazing experiences you are bringing to Windows. Just a couple of days ago I had the opportunity to celebrate with some of you our first windows developer awards:

Thank you, and I look forward to trying your applications soon.



Windows is home for developers with Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

From The Verge. microsoft build 2017

Microsoft just wrapped up its day-two Build 2017 keynote, and this is the one that was filled with news that’s more important to consumers and the company’s loyal fans. Terry Myerson, Joe Belfiore, and other executives shared the stage to reveal details about the upcoming year for Windows 10, a new design philosophy for all Microsoft apps, the company’s mixed reality efforts, and much more. The presentation covered a lot and wasted little time, but here’s the biggest news that came from today:

The name might be familiar, but Microsoft’s next big Windows update has a different focus than 3D productivity. The Fall Creators Update, likely to arrive in September, aims to bring aspects of the Windows experience everywhere you go. There’s a big focus on cross-device experiences: you start something on your Surface and finish it on your iPhone, or vice versa. “Windows PCs will love all of your devices,” Joe Belfiore said on stage.

Your files, activities, and other content will seamlessly travel across devices and just be there — if the system works as Microsoft promises. Cortana will ask if you want to resume where you left off when you switch between products, and a new Timeline feature provides an encompassing view of what you’ve been working on and the apps you’ve been using.


Microsoft is moving on from Metro. At Build, Joe Belfiore introduced what it calls Fluent Design, an evolution from the current Windows interface that focuses on “light, depth, motion, material, and scale.” Consumers can expect to start seeing aspects of Fluent Design — such as blur effects and flourishes of light meant to draw your focus to the right place — in the Fall Creators Update Microsoft’s mobile apps. You can get a feel for how it all comes together in the tweet below. Pretty nice.


Windows has a great app for creating videos again. Story Remix takes your media — photos and video from your smartphone, for example — and turns them into “instant video stories.” Microsoft says Story Remix can produce a video that feels professional with just minutes of work. You can be as hands-on as you want (advanced 3D features are supported), or let the app do almost everything to make memorable content out of the memories that you feed into it.


Surface 3 Pen
Microsoft’s stylus is beloved by Surface owners. It’s core to what makes the Surface… Surface. And with the Fall Creators Update, Microsoft is working to eliminate any remaining friction for using it across the entire system at all times. You’ll be able to use the pen to scroll and interact throughout Windows, and the company has built PDF annotation right into its Edge browser. If you love the Pen, Microsoft wants to make it so that you’ll never have to put it down.


Microsoft announced a new set of motion controllers that pair with its Windows Mixed Reality VR headsets. The controllers, which have numerous LEDs running around them, will be fully tracked by sensors in the headset itself rather than relying on external cameras or other equipment. They’ll ship this holiday season, with Acer packaging them into a $399 bundle that includes its own mixed reality headset.


Microsoft is building its own take on Apple’s universal clipboard, but this one works across more platforms. The new cloud-powered clipboard will let Windows 10 users copy content from an app on their PC and paste it on mobile devices like iPhones or Android handsets. The clipboard will also be directly integrated into Microsoft’s suite of Office apps, making it easier to quickly grab content from your phone and drop it into a document you might be working on from your desktop.


Speaking of Apple, while Microsoft’s Windows 10 S operating system might have to go it without Google Chrome for awhile, the company is bringing a massive media app to the Windows Store: iTunes. Apple will release a version of iTunes in Microsoft’s digital store by the end of 2017, so it might not be there in time for next month’s launch of the Surface Laptop.
