Seems not to support the "SS" rune that many used,



I guess that means that bmp fonts are out.

Thanks Larry, I find the AAR most informative. I am working on a revision of Operation Roundup 1943. The internet has facilitated historical research and it has an updated OOB. Working on a different premise than the original by Tim McBride, Torch and Husky take place. But from June on the Allies concentrate on the invasion of France and Stalin is a happy camper. Oh, and Patton is in charge of the US 1st Army. Working on the PO versions. The new system changed everything. The PO still loves to run forces in front of coastal artillery when their are safer paths. A human player can figure that out after a couple units evaporate. Why jump back and forth in front of the guns risking multiple attacks? Did in the earlier version but the guns didn't fire back. Been testing PBeM, found glitches in system. Bummer, crashes each time too trying to invade Cherbourg. I hope I am not the only one. Seen this before years ago. Not sure what the fix was. I would love to see the PBeM work right, helps in adjusting things.

Maybe you ought to post something about it. Ralph can get right on it and fix it. He's good like that.

Well tried replacing the SS runes with regular script. Works on most units and formations. But still get some even with regular script SS coming up with the box symbols. Even completely renaming a unit or formation differently didn't fix it. Like it wants the rune symbols. Maybe my computer is haunted

I have had the same issue with the runes as boxes, almost random...

I had the same problem with updating Ardennes 1944 to IV when the 2.PzD tried to climb out of Clervaux. I think is had something to do with the terrain- out of Super River, Bad Lands, Rocky, Bridge Destroyed, Town in Ruins, HQ 110 Inf Entrenched, attacking up an escarpment. Whew! Historically it took a full day to push the HQ 110th Inf out of Clervaux and the 2.Pz did not progress 10 km out of Clervaux until 18 Dec. Crashed when moving from one hex to another.
I toned down the hex and seems to take care of the problem.
Good luck.

It's not a public forum. You have to be on the development team to have access.

Can the team provide an estimate of the number of scenarios expected to be provided with TOAW4? Maybe even provide some titles and the eras covered?

Hey Rhino dude: To answer your question I thought I'd post a picture of my WWII - Asia direcdtory now. It's got scenario's from
Thomas Harvey, and Bob Cross, and Steve Sill and I don't know who all. Those scenario's in the boxes are the newer ones.
Most of them cover the Pacific War and that's because of all the testing we've been doing with the new naval rules. There's some
excellent scenarios available to play now.

Just putting the finishing touches on a mod or Strategic Command 3. It follows my books.
I'll try my hand here as well.

A bit off topic but one I'd like to see would be a Manchuria 45 scenario. Pretty tough for the Japanese against battle hardened Soviet forces but victory conditions could take care of that. It's not a well known campaign but was conducted in record time, over a vast area, in trying conditions and was much studied as a template for potential post-war Warsaw Pact operations.

I just don't have time to devote to doing it myself

Edit: Sorry about the Vietnamese but it is a good map

Cheers, Neilster

I have some of my scenarios to submit:

-- Sino-Soviet 69 Yuguri v3.0, a completely re-wrote version of Sino-Soviet 69. All Soviet/China OOB and TOE reworked.
-- Fulda 55 Yugiri, a re-wrote version of Fulda 55, rewriting all Soviet/US TOE&OOB which makes the scenario more balanced.
-- Operation Desert Storm, a Soviet Union version: hypothesis Soviet Union&Warsaw Pact campaign of the ODS.
-- Operation Desert Storm, a PRC version: hypothesis People's Liberation Army campaign of the ODS.
-- Taiwan 2016: hypothesis PLA invasion of Taiwan in 2016.

For years I'm working on the history of the PLA. It's sad to say that the current TOAW III scenarios show little concerning about the Chinese PLA, and those included the PLA never get straight on its OOB&TOE. Hope that my scenarios on the 1970s/90s/2010s PLA may be fun and useful for the others.

However I have little knowledge and experience on making PO, and all these scenarios are PBEM only, at least for now!

Regards, Nikolai.

Manchuria campaign may be too tough for the Japanese...

I played my own Sino-Soviet 69 version (a "basing on historical" version) with my friend for 5 times. Each time the Harbin and Changchun is abandoned at the very first turn, or the defenders would lost all its garrisons in a huge pocket. And after Changchun, Shenyang is only a matter of time...

Considering that the PLA in 1969 was much stronger that the Kwantougun in 1945, and the later suffered a very bad strategic situation at the beginning of the operation, it should be nearly impossible for the Japanese to hold even one of the major cities in the AO, including Port Arthur and Peking.

But I believe that the scenario must be interesting.

Regards, Nikolai.

Yes, it's going to be an interesting scenario, still remember the scenes in movie "Purple Sunset", T34/85 rolling down a dirt road, exchanging fire with Japanese AT Gun.

the scenario can be balanced with VP and victory condition, just as Neilster suggested.

I would love to see "Operation Neva Leningrad 1944: The Leningrad-Novgorod Offensive" in TOAW 4
this is one of the best Eastern Front Scenario at Battalion level

Hello guys!

Thanks for the comments on the VCO series. It would be great to have them included in TOAW IV but I'm not sure they will work ok with the new engine, might require some playtests to see if they unfold as intended. In any case, they can be found here :

I was actually referring to these amazing scenarios. Hope they make it into IV.

Good news! Stéphane MOUTIN LUYAT, the author of these amazing scenarios, is still active and has expressed an interest in continuing work on updating these scenarios for TOAW IV, and possibly adding to the series. I have already downloaded the series into the TOAW IVBeta, and they seem to be compatible with regards to graphics, terrain tiles, etc. Most of the original playtesters of Vietnam Combat Operations are on the TOAWIVBeta team and hopefully can vet the scenarios for IV.

It would be nice if the game were able to realistically offer the kinds of operational options available in today's world; such as the installation of a no-fly zones and a realistic depiction of what drones and air power can do. The battle between 'boots on the ground' and air alone is an old one, but it shouldn't be. For everyday we change the game for the air option while the 'boots on the ground' approach will always incur friendly loss on a scale much more relative to the those inflicted.

These things would be major new features, probably not so easily implemented in such an old engine.

But if possible, i would be glad to buy 'TOAW4 - Modern Warfare DLC'.

Lets face it, the most interesting era for TOAW was, is and surely will always be way in the past.
If you want some real modern stuff why not try Command: Modern Air / Naval Operations http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tt.asp?forumid=1154

I agree also I would love some modern stuff with drones / spy satellites and co. But, TOAW is more WW2 oriented.

In case of modern warfare, TOAW would have to add lots of stuff. Starting with treating multiple nationalities inside the same scenario. Ground troops from one nationality supported by an air coalition of other nationalities. This tend to be the trend these days.

You are correct with the engine, there is only so much that can be done with it in context of the very modern combined arms stuff.

Command: Modern Air / Naval has it's limitations in the fact it's real time and boots on the ground is a bit fuzzy. But it's still a good game for what it depicts.

Somehow I think some folks (myself included) love the TOAW editor and would not mind a bit to see it handle year 2000+ plus scenarios. But I know it's sweet spot is WWII and a little bit on either side of that time frame, there's plenty to do and play there. And if you don't mind odd results you certainly can do more modern scenario's.
