When trying to open the mods, ToW says "This game is not compatible with current version". This was only to be expected, so there's no critisism on my behalf.

Before I start a time-consuming trial and error session, though, is there something you can point at directly being the cause for the incompatibility? I have to re-work consts, I understand that much, but what other files do I have to alter?

Of course, in worst case, I can always re-mod the entire game anew. But it would be convenient to only work on the differing files.

  • Thank you, just want to say that I find this one rather strange. Marines units should be the only units capable of doing that no?

    The amphibious assaults in North Africa, and Sicily and especially Normandy should be our guide. Plenty of "from the sea" by the US, British and Canadian armies.

    Ah yes you are right, anyway we still have to buy amphibious points to do an amphibious assault in version 1.70?

    The amphibious part of the game works very well.

    I didn't get the ETO to work by changing the version number, but managed to work around it.

    I am unable to register ToW to download the patch because it says my serial number is already in use.  I can only assume its from RtV.  Is there anyway to register so I can download the latest patch?

    Playing as the british the Barbarossa scenario I have not noticed any fighter interceptions occuring. It is currently turn 8. Am I just being unlucky or are their other factors in play?

    I may have been in error. Since reinforcing my interceptors they now seem to be doing their job. They seemed reluctant when at half strength

    Still testing Barbarossa campaign as the British.The US does not join the Allies on December 7th 1941!  This was a problem in version 1.60 when I played it. Very frustrating to spend hours to play a game and not have a major event which should occur eventuate.

    How does one get the ETO mod to work? Uxbridge said changing the version number in the misc file didn't work. What does?

    Augustus, in fact it did work. I was trying to change a sligthly newer version of ETO and there's where the problem was. Don't know why. When trying to change the version number on the standard ETO, there was no problem.

    Just open misc, locate the number "1.6" and change it to "1.7".

    It is WAD. Fighters stay passive when its strength is low, otherwise they would be doomed during interception.

    It's not automatic. It's NEVER automatic!
    It depends on preceding events and the US  response to them.

    The US might stay neutral all the way, if not attacked by Japan. They might choose to fight Japan only, they MIGHT join the Alliance or fight the Axis without joining the Alliance, as a co-belligerent and I hope the developers have allowed for the strong pro-Axis sentiment in the US in the late 30s by allowing that, if FDR does NOT get re-elected and the Bund and the Silver Shirts become stronger, there's a chance that the US joins the Axis.

    In-game "events" are a mystery and extremely variable in combination. Don't expect the game to proceed on historical rail tracks. That's one of the joys of the system.

    I have noticed that the US cant deploy the carrier yorktown out of the deployment box  to New York Harbour. Everytime I try the game drops out. Also the patrol group I built cant be deployed either it is greyed out.

    In respect to the game Im playing. Ive noticed the Russian AI is doing very well  and pushing the Germans back (It is late March 42) The Germans got no where near Moscow or Lenningrad before winter. I suspect the Russian AI will probably win this game rather than the allies.

    If in a sea zone next to the hex is player's aircraft, then a new icon will be available. With that you can try to attack hex with a unit or ships in harbor.

    Hi All,

    I am now part of the member's club and have registered my WW2:ToW game - but I am not able to download the 1.70beta zip when I am at the registered download screen ...All I get when I klick on the zip link is the message that this ftp link is not available!??

    Can anyone help me? Or is the 1.70beta zip not available anymore?

    Or maybe Wastelands can give us an ETA for the official 1.7?

    Go to Members - login - choose "my games" - then choose "private downloads" to the right of "Time of Wrath". Then you should have it.
