The one at the load up screen is out of date. The one in my directory (us letter) will not open. I would also like to be able to down load a copy to my smart phone so I can read it during downtime when I am at work.

How can I get the most recent manual?

You must have got a bad download or something. The ...[US-LETTER] one is date stamped 12/01/2011 and came with the latest update patch. As a .pdf it works just fine on my Droid X. Be sure you have the latest Adobe Reader for both your PC and your smartphone.

Ok, I will make sure I have the most recent adobe reader, although I could open the others. I that doesnt work is there another way to download it. Game says it has the most recent patch.

When you install the latest patch you get the latest updated manual!

It is located in the "\War in the East\Manuals" folder and under name:

"WITE-Manual-[US_LETTER].pdf"


I know this because I created it...

And Thank You for that Apollo11. I've been doing the same updating the Empires in Arms manual. It's a lot of work but it would be nice if every game had somebody do the grunt work to keep up with the version changes.

I got it! I got it!! Seems the problem was my PDF reader. I thought I had Adobe but I had some other one. Weird.

I downloaded Adobe and it opened fine. I even printed the WHOLE thing up and put it in an empty notebook.

Thanks for all the help guys!

The "us letter" contains all addendum at the end of the manual...such as HQ needing to be within 20 MPs of a rail head in order for supply buildup to work.

The "WITE-Manual-[US_LETTER].pdf" is updated WitE manual with:

#1
All sigthed manual errors/typos (since release of WitE) fixed

#2
Fully jumpable sections (i.e. when you click on referece x.y.z you go to that section)

#3
Addendum with all latest stuff added to the WitE

Hi everyone,
I make a request ... it is possible in the future to use other types of formats for the manual besides pdF? such as epub in particular, I have some ebook reader and pdf format not always is good for these devices...

In past I asked for community help to guide me through it but nobody knew how to do it properly...

You can use a free program called Calibre to convert different book formats from other formats. I have used it to covert from PDF to epub for my Sony reader (although not for the game manual).
