Worst Computer Game Manual Ever - 6/28/2018 9:05:21 PM

I've had this game (ATG) now for several years, on my hard drive, and I've looked at it a few times. I recently decided to seriously tackle the manual, the pdf of which I have on a tablet that I read in bed where I do most of my serious reading. Half-way through I have no idea what I've read. The words are English, but the sentences somehow aren't. I know this was written by someone for whom English is not his first language, so that is quite obviously the problem.
I'm not new to computer games, nor to computer wargames. I've been at it for over 30 years, so I've read my share of manuals.
It's frustrating, because wargame construction sets such as this are among my favorite type of game and by all accounts this is a great one. I just can't seem to get started and reading the manual melts my brain.
Any suggestions?

A series that is more helpful than the manual was made, entitled the ATG College. You can access it here:

If watching youtube is more your thing, there is a "Let's play" that is linked from this page:

Hope this helps out :)

First of all, thanks ernieschwitz for providing already useful links.

I will also point out a link to an Advanced Tactics Gold tutorial series on YouTube that I made. In fact, you have to scroll past it -- it's one of the pinned topics on the ATG forum here!

Tortuga Power's ATG video tutorials:

If you have any questions, the people on this forum are very willing to provide their time and be helpful. Good luck!

Thanks, tortugapower, I'll take a look at those as soon as real-life gets a little less busy.
