By the use of F1, the TOAW III help becomes active.

It appears they've just plopped the help files from TOAW3 from 2006 in the game folder

i wonder if it's to keep backwards compatibility with older battles and games etc?

will have to ask the developer but from a wild guess, that would be my thinking, but until one of the team replies, it's a good find all the same

From MS:

The Windows Help program is not supported in Windows 10, Windows Server 2012 or later versions of Windows Server. The Windows Help program is available for Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1 only.

Microsoft strongly recommends that software developers discontinue using the Windows Help application. Software developers who ship programs that rely on .hlp files are encouraged to transition their Help experience to an alternative Help file format, such as CHM, HTML, or XML. For more information see the MSDN article While Microsoft develops future Help technologies, we encourage Help authors to continue using HTML Help 1.4. HTML Help 1.4 is included in Windows versions starting with Windows 7.

So apparently there won't be an F1 for TOAW IV? If you click on Help in the menu bar you get the proper manual. I guess F1 should be disabled or opens the manual also. In other news, most of what is in the F1 help files still pertains to TOAW IV.

When I grow up I would either like to manage a supermarket or be Vice President of the United States. Of course, I know it takes brains to manage a supermarket.

Nope, I just forgot to change that line of code. It's supposed to pull up the manual like help/about does.
