From: The True North. Strong and Free
The Matrix Manual V5.0 was apparently written by more than a few folks, a long time ago with no real strong editing involved. So while the info is "there" in the pages, ya gotta lot of work to do to piece it all together.
On top of that, SPWaW had some very significant changes implemented starting with V6 IIRC, continuing until the early V8 builds. The kicker was that no-one updated the manual, so now you've got a lot of missing / incomplete / wrongly described / totally wrong information in which to work with.
Our only saving grace, was these Forums, along with the old Depot Forums. A bunch of years ago I set about to mine some info for an ASL friend that wanted to play. It grew from there. A Lot.
If you decide to D/L the Enhanced Version from my sig, you'll find a SPWaW Field Manual in the Extras\Manuals read.me's folder. The Field manual was my attempt to lay out the info about this game in an easy to read, and easy to find what you're looking for format. AKAIK, the data is still valid, other than the Spotting routines. We got that dialled in after this Guide was made.
Field Manual V1.0 linked HERE for your convenience.
Hahahahahahhahahhahahaha Good Luck with that mate!
The scoring system as we have it is fubared.
Here is a post from our exalted Matrix member Poopyhead who took the time to try and sort out how this works. I'm sure he had a headache after trying to explain it. Annnnnnd, HERE he is, 'spainin' it again.
