Where did you read it? I tried asking about a month (or two) ago and got no official reply.

They really need to be better at giving information.

I am curious. What needs to be patched? The game works fairly well for me.

It was posted by somebody on my FITE2 thread. Thought the new patch is a given thing.

There's a "new turn order rules" option to turn on and it doesn't effect gameplay at all yet.

I still wonder.. will the ranged hexes bug be fixed?
I posted it here on the main forum several months ago, but i got no feedback from anyone of the dev team..

Another thing that is apparently not finished, according to the manual and some posts I've seen here, is that the Force Editor is supposed to be upgraded, or its functions absorbed into the Deployment Editor, or sumfink.

I get CTD when scrolling the Combat Report (click-hold-drag) and I'm quite disturbed by how the map breaks apart under the panels when scrolling. And this is even on a high end computer and small map. Never had that in TOAW III. One thing that might not be patched, but I find the design in some scenarios with having the same background color of counters for both sides annoying, like in Iwo Jima (Green for both US and Japanese).

1. Fixing the unit movement which is now painstakingly slow. I know there is a spacebar trick but honestly it should be programmable.

2. Bring back the unit counters customization like in TAOW3.

3. Some better unit overview panels where nice graphic could be used (like a relevant equip icon).

1. You can adjust speed on player options. Also, just turn on caps lock and the movement will be instantaneous.

2. Aren't they customizable anymore? There is a thread with customized icons in the mods subfolder.

3. I think the possibility for the designer to add some pictures would be great to create atmosphere. Mainly an event to bring a panel (like the news panel) immediately after an action/fact takes place with text and pictures, so one could bring historical facts and pictures of a city after its capture, for instance; moving a known naval unit for the first time could bring a panel with its specifications and history; occupying a location which activates a "game influencing" event could bring the facts and pictures related to the event, etc.

I decided I wanted the faster game to be a permanent feature that I wouldn't have to manually apply everytime I wanted it to go faster. Here's the setting I tried to make it go faster and it did.

Not really, yes you can do some things even better than in TOAWIII like combining icons to get features from both icons, but currently all scenarios would have to be reworked to get the colors right and get the icons not only right but also the features that the designer wanted.
The scenario that I had intended to start playing TOAWIV with is a good example, the designer made custom icons for corps HQs but the icon uses was a supply icon, at this point all hope for any user to rework the scenario is stopped because he doesn't know if the possible combination of icons(HQ & supply) should be used here or not, not to speak of the fact that one can't customize the icon like it was as there or not enough icon slots.The counter set is not only very small but applies to both sides, if taking out the icons with features there are very few icons that one could customize, what is overall not nearly enough for highly customized scenarios.

Long talk short sense, most ambitious don't work and one can only fall back to TOAWIII to play them like the designer intended them, if this isn't the number 1 to fix I really don't know what else it could be.

Please add your comments here:

maybe it helps to get this serious problem it solved.
