WordStorm 2.1.1 requires at least an 800x600 display; aside from that it should run on any Windows 98SE or later system.


version 2.1.1 build 6

On some displays (e.g., 1280 x 1024 small fonts) WordStorm 2.1 used too large a font for the score and status text, causing portions of the text to overlap. The algorithm for determining font size was changed to take widths and not just heights into account.

version 2.1 build 5

This release is functionally identical to build 4; the only differences are some changes to the “About WordStorm” text and the install packaging. If you have already installed build 4, there is no reason to download build 5.
