Unofficial Widescreen patch for Warlords Battlecry 3.
This is the second update to my Warlords Battlecry III widescreen patch. After a bit of a break, I've hopped back in and fixed and enhanced quite a few things.
Hope you'll enjoy the added enhancements and bug fixes!
Patch page can be found here: https://heythere.coffee/wbc3/
This was developed from the last official patch. As such no features/changes of the unoffical patches are included. You should apply this patch on top of a fresh GOG or Steam install!
Also due to some rendering changes this may not work on older previously supported systems. This has only been tested with Windows 10.
Third party/Open source licenses can be found in osslicenses.txt under the installation folder.
