Ok, this link is not working at present, but you can access the FAQs thru the SPWaW manual file in your main SPWaW directory.
To read it, you need the free Adobe Acrobat reader--you can get this here: http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html
This is the free program, so go ahead and download it.
After installing the Acrobat program, you should be able to open "Spwawman" and have it display ed propeand print the info on your screen.

Survey

What part of the world are you from?

North America
Canada
South America
Asia : Hong Kong/ Singapore/ Japan
Europe : Germany/ France/ Eastern Europe
Europe : Spain/ Italy/ Greece
Europe : Norway/ Finland/ Sweden
Africa
Australia
New Zealand
UK
Middle East

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Last I knew, Canada was part of North America, right Les ?

Pleased to see it doesn't say 'Europe: UK', however.

If you ask the Englesh, many will agree that they've never been part of Europe. :rolleyes: :p

But they are. :)

Geographically, maybe.

But as for being part of an Gaullist device for increasing French global dominance at the expense of national self-interest... no thanks.

Checked out the url - nothing there.

Everything works on the menu but the game!

8.0 with 8.1 patch, XP Pro, scads of mem, disk space. Only thing I can think of is it is a portable so maybe the screen refresh? but - a "true" windows game, whatever that is.

HInts? Help? Cannot find a tech trouble shooter FAQ section. Thanks for the try anyway.

Try to run the game by the Mech.exe file, directly.
You can find it in the main spwaw folder.
If it works, then what you're missing is only the intro movie.
Not a big loss: once seen you'd skip it anyway, I guess. :)

Hell there is an intro movie?!?! I just get a black screen and I click and it goes away.

You can try to access the other parts of the window through your start menu and navigate through program folders, although if a program isn't going to work it isn't going to work.

I think you can see the movie anyway by loading the
SPWAW.avi file with an avi player. But well, it's
not really soooo great...

First and foremost: Manual.
Manual is automatically installed on your computer from 7.1 on up. It is found in the start menu folder that contains the rest of your Steel Panthers World at War items. It requires a PDF reader such as Adobe Acrobat Reader (free download).

H2H can be found at Panzer Leo's site.

Original Steel Panthers Strategy and Tactics Primer (link).

Larry Holt's FAQ MUST READ!!

Our Own Cpt Pixel's Artillery Guide

Our Own Cpt Pixel's Direct Fire Guide (read if you are having trouble assualting a position i.e. you feel you should be inflicting casualties but are receiving them instead)

These links were working as of 3-29-04.

Alright guys, I tried to find the online FAQs, but apparently they have disappaered into cyberoblivion. I hate this, but they are still available in the SPWaW manual included in everyone's game folder. You have to have Abode Acrobat installed, and it's a pdf file called SPWaW manual.

Here Here LEAVE THE EU VOTE UKIP:P on one of there pamphlets[sp] it says that the eu are trying to take control of the armed forces big no no the sooner we leave the better also
we put in something like £55million into the eu and get no where near that much back where as other countries put less in and get more back i dont think this is fair do u? this is also equivilant to what the spainish claim from the EU!(no offence to the spainish just the EU)

I came back to SPWW recently.  I almost forgot why I stopped playing.  Then just recently my screen went blank and the only way out - yes, I tried everything - I had to shut down the PC.  What's the word on this - Chronic?
I like Matix' formats too much to abandon you.

This has happened to numerous people, you will find tons of posts on it..
solutions are..
1. Shut down programs running in background. Anti virus programs and such...
2. Roll back video drivers, this one worked for me..

Thought I'd update this link, the one below works. The primer is for the original SP put out by SSI but I'm sure the tactics are still valid.
