First of all, hello everyone.

I am a long-time war gamer and former US Navy submariner. I have been wanting to play Harpoon for a long time but am just now getting around to it. I picked up the Ultimate Edition recently.

I can see what is unique about CE, and I like it.

My confusion lies in what I read about Harpoon 3 and Harpoon 3 ANW. What is the difference between these two? Can someone explain it to me? If a third-party scenario or db says it works with H3 does it work with both or just the non-ANW version?

It is a little confusing.

Cheers,

B5

There are many differences between H3 and H3:ANW (a.k.a. ANW). The biggest difference is that ANW is capable of Multi-player. A number of new functions were added to ANW, but the cost was many new bugs to both the new features as well as the degradation in performance of the previous H3 functions.

If a scenario is written with a particular version of the game (either H3, ANW, or HUE), it is generally advisable to play that scenario with the game version for which it was originally created. Scenarios written with H3 generally perform better with that version of the game for a number of reasons even if it *might* load and run for ANW or HUE. The primary reason for this is the fact that scenarios are usually tested only for the version in which they were initially created. The different AI behaviours between H3, ANW, and HUE means that the game performs differently. A certain mission might work perfectly well in H3, but then totally fail to initiate in ANW or HUE.
