Looking for some tutorial help - 8/30/2019 9:12:20 PM

Been browsing the AAR's here and I want to try this game out. I don't have a lot of WW2 game experience (Battle Academy series, some Men at War, Steel Divisions briefly and a TON of Steel Panthers).

Can anyone recommend a good YouTube "lets play" series of videos for this game?

Is there an online manual?

Thanks

The Manual is here: https://www.matrixgames.com/amazon/PDF/Operational_Art_of_War_manual.pdf

The 'let's play's' that I have seen are not very good, although it has been a couple years since I have looked into them. What I saw at that time caused me to make a few video's, and while I didn't do a 'beginner tutorial' type video, they might help you once you get into it. The first one is an 'At Start' video found here: TOAW Tutorial - At Start

Also see Klink's tut's listed in Post #41 here: https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=2231803&mpage=2&key=

Thank you!

Any TOAW tips for a pretty inexperienced PC war gamer?

Relax! There is a lot to take in but don't get put off. You don't need to know much to enjoy it. I swear I didn't even care what 'rounds' were for about the first six years that I played. My brother never played with advanced rules because he said he didn't like all the detail. I don't recommend that, but it makes a point. Stick with it thru the initial unfamiliarity and you'll never regret it. For this genre TOAW is by far the best there is and you'll get years of fun out of it if it is your thing.

There are always a few of us here to help out. It's often easier to ask here than to search the internet or YouTubes [we do encourage searching the manual, hey it's fun!]. And also check here for some simple stuff:

And don't forget - don't use steam [my personal recommendation, but officially TOAW is steam supported]
