Was waiting for Fallout 4, but screw that. Also I am sure I was promised, or at least that I sternly demanded, that I will be invited to the beta whenever it comes. I can't find the thread as the search doesn't really function.

Hey Karri ! The same one from back in the FitE / D21 days ?

Just to clarify, there is no Beta. Instead, scenario designers are invited to submit scenarios for approval and designer admission to the IV Development Forum. See here : http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3898970

My copy of OAOW 3 is from Talonsoft, the original publisher. There is no serial number to enter; the disk is the key. So,

1) Is there anyway I can use the new patch?

There should be a file in your TOAW directory that is called serialreg.txt and it has your serial number in it. And if you
can't find that file it's registered in your registry but I'm not sure where.

Thanks for the suggestion, however, there is no serialreg.txt file for the Talonsoft game. As I said, the disk in the drive is the copy protection for this one. In fact, I can't evern register the game because the Talonsoft program will only work with a modem. I will try one of those registration number recovery programs though. I've had good luck with those in the past.

Are you talking about "A Century of Warfare"? That isn't a Matrix game. You have to have TOAW III to use the update.

I think you must be getting mixed up with an older game. There is no Talonsoft version of TOAW III - well at least as far as i know!

Just wait a bit and you can get a brand spanking new shiny new game smelling TOAW4.

Yes, I have the original TOAW from Talonsoft. I thought there had been previous versions to that. I'll wait for version 4 to show up.

Well then I shouldn't tell you that there is a FitE2, brand spankin' new from the ground up, by the same guys that did the original FitE. I can hook you up with it if you like !

Good to see you are still around.

Well, I started doing freelancing so I have plenty of time in my hand that I should use on writing...but do hook me up. Maybe I'll manage to find the TOAW 3 key from somewhere as well...and the download.

Hey there Al dude. We can sure use your help. I would suggest you send an email to
tamask(at)slitherine(dot)co(dot)uk and tell him all about your experience and skills and
ask to be made part of the beta team to test your scenarios for the new version. Tell
him I sent you.

friends,

Hopefully it will be after you and I stop breaking it but before I finish my test game of FITE2. Can you image the bitching if it was released before we got all the bugs out of it.

Well, this has been a favorite of mine for many years. However, I will remain skeptical.
As much as I enjoyed creating monster war game favorites (Gulf Stike, Longest Day and many others) The game engine never seemed to perform historically very well.
But I will probably buy it anyway as making the games is almost more fun than playing them.

Do you have any experience with other Matrix games? Like WITP-AE, or WITE or WITW?

I'd like to encourage you to apply as a beta tester for TOAW IV because we can use your experience(s).
Also, there's been changes to the game engine that I can't mention here that makes it perform a lot better ( TOAW IV ).

I agree that making the games is at least as much fun as playing them. I'm modding Barbarosa '41 for the new version and
I'm learning all kinds of things. Rest assured that the new version of the editor is a LOT easier to use.

Yes, own both WITP-AE & WITE, played both.

Never though about Beta Testing, now that I'm retired I will think about it.

Yeah I still wish I had my Gulf Strike map 300X300. Although 700 X 700 seems like fun.
I have a real odd map making discipline - Take a copy of the source map and grid it out, then grid out the game with with railroad lines, when finished it was always a pain to erase the railroad grid lines. But the maps looked nice and accurate.

Seems like 700 X 700 would work nice in a re-do of GDW's Third World War series with both the Mid east and Iran along with Europe.

I read Curtis Lemay's post on new features, so now I have a general idea of the new features.

Well, considering the game has been pushed back to Q1 or Q2 of next year I am hoping that the list of features is now obsolete. Meaning more is being done in the way of features. The basic 'stuff' has been in production for years. The release date for 3.5 was April. So, speaking reasonably, changing the 3.5 patch to TOAW4 because of a graphics overhaul should not take that long. Especially considering a very seasoned artist is employed in that endeavor. My fervent hope is that more is being added to the game as the reason for such a long delay after long delay. Otherwise we may be looking at another Combined Arms: WW2/Battlefields.

We can only hope, the more extras crammed into the game the better. Although since war games in general have a pretty small market some delays could also be assigned to prudent resource expenditures.

I have done neither of those two things in anticipation of TOAW IV ... whatever they are.
