Now that WITE is nearly finished in terms of any major changes, would it be possible for the manual to be updated with all of the Rule changes? I know this would personally save me a lot of time (which I'm sure my opponent would rather I spend doing my turn) going through all of the notes to each update trying to fine the rule change I am looking for.

It has been (in the sense that the readme items have been positioned in the relevant sections of the amended manual. You should find it in your manual folder (the Amended Manual).

I have been doing it for months (years? )...

Just open the "WITE-Manual-[US_LETTER].pdf" and you will see every new rule, clarifications and explanation in appropriate section of the manual!

Ok, as if my game with Saper wasn't humbling enough now I feel like a real idiot. Thanks for directing me to the updated Manual.

Could you make it so that opening the game manual in the autostarter opens the updated manual? I think that would help a few people find it. Especially the guys who aren't regularly at the forum.

Anywhere you can see what actually changed from the original manual to the the updated one? So I don't have to re-read eveything looking for the alterations?

There's a whatsnew.pdf file in the main game directory (also a readme doc as well).

Hi all,

And at the start of the Addendum in updated PDF manual there is always version number, date and list of things fixed!

Thanks for doing this, very useful.

Now it is possible that I've missed these two things.

Could this be stickied. Until I did a search I had no idea it existed. Yes I kow the changes are in the whatsnew but as others have said, this version has all the changes in context with the original.

Could a version be produced that is not in US-letter format so that we europeans can pront it out easily

You can print it just fine using Adobe PDF function "Fit" (i.e. "US Letter" is not that different from European "A4" and "Fit" option does a great job).

is the whole manual posted anywhere? I'd like to look at it before purchasing. Specifically what player aids are available for newbies to blunt the learning curve. I've read many of the AAR's and looks like information overload.

The link to the manual posted does not have all of the current game rule updates.

You will find the actual game has alot of changes from what is written in that manual such as command points for Soviet armies and several other changes to how units work and numbers. Is another one online in the forums where a guys went in and added in all the changes from patchs but its not as pretty as the orginial rulebook.

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3862472 - Condensed rules as of 1.08.03

1.08.05 should include and updated manual with changes up to and including 1.08.02, maybe the author finds some free time to update it further.

So is the printed manual now for sale (August 2015) the original manual or a version which includes current updates?

It's the original, and IIRC, only a small portion of the WitE pdf manual was printed.

For 2.0, have you 2by3 guys considered making the manual (or perhaps a core set of the rules) available on the web in a wiki form? Then as rules change they can be kept up to date in one location that everyone can reference? Some of the hardcore dedicated players might be willing to help keep it up to date as patches come out, if more manpower is needed.

Brilliant idea. It is hard enough to learn this game without an out-of-date rulebook.

Only why not do it now? Simple enough to publish the existing rulebook as html.

I'd like to help with the endeavor, but not sure how much time I can commit at present. If I can get a draft of such a thing whipped up i'll share it here and go from there.


Looking up a couple of posts, someone(s) already did a lot of work on this. It would be great if it was a live document somewhere that others could edit as well.

Is there an actual updated manual that is up to 1.09? If I check the manual from the game launcher its from 10/13..just wondering if there is a manual that reflects all changes up to date. Thanks!

I'd like to see an updated manual for the legacy patch.
The 345 pages of manual, 300+ pages of patches and 145 pages of user reported updates is a bit much.
Thanks for the link to the updates until 1.08 Denniss....

The Manual-US-Letter still shows the 2013 annotated version up to v 1.07. Is there any chance we will get a v1.11 updated version soon(tm)?

Having not played for well over three years I'm trying to get my head around changes. New manual is a good idea to help but it does not appear to be up-to-date. Is this going to happen?

I don't have a pdf editor but it's locked anyway. I could edit it using open office. If someone wants to send me in .doc or odt format or an unlocked pdf I might attampt to update it.

I get really anoyed when a good game gets spoilt by lack of correct documentation, unfortunately this happens most of the time.

I have heard that the US LETTER manual from 2013 is the most up to date one. Unfortunately the PDF file is [SECURED] which means that the creator of this manual did not allow us readers to highlight important passages. Does an unsecured edition of this manual and/or a newer version exist anywhere?

As a new player this game is daunting enough on its own without having to deal with outdated manuals...
