Is the game compiled as 32-bit or 64-bit?
Is it written in C++, C#, or something else?
Does it use some sort of game engine or is it built from scratch?

Thanks.

Why it's not 64-bit? It's been the era of 64-bit system for years...

For what purpose? What parameter in a wargame would require 64 bits? Most variables in the game are 16-bits. 32-bit ones are hard to come by. A 32-bit variable has a range of over 4-billion.

For TOAW, perhaps to calculate the trajectory of each shell when two divisions meet.

The vast majority of games available on Steam, GOG and any other game retail site are 32 bit. Where do you get your 64 bit game information? The reason they are 32 bit is to reach the maximum number of buyers possible instead of reducing the number of potential buyers to only those who have 64 bit machines and operating systems.

Scratch or uses existing code from previous TOAW versions?

Uses existing code from previous TOAW versions. (And probably from pre-TOAW stuff Norm had as well).
