Features

  • Incorporates an updated anti-armor combat model, Norm Kogers farewell gift to the TOAW engine, which allows for hits to be made against weaker side armor.
  • Enhanced play by email (PBEM) security, to remove exploits which plagued previous versions of TOAW.
  • Enhanced PO functionality. Substantial improvements made to make the PO, when properly set-up by a scenario designer, play much smarter.
  • 999 events can now be defined within a scenario. Thats twice as many as in previous versions of TOAW.
  • An attack duration limiter was added, available in the scenario editor, which can dramatically reduce, or eliminate, the frustrating effects of turn-burning attacks, which larger scenarios have often had to deal with.
  • Support added for scenario and era specific graphics, sounds, and music. Ships with several sets of default files, but is mod-friendly for those who wish to customize these items in their game.
  • Revised the manual and help file, to get rid of incorrect data and references going all the way back to TOAW I. The manual is now on .pdf and is searchable.
  • More Hotkey support was added, as well as several new UI enhancements.
  • More advanced game options, affecting supply and fog of war.
  • Turn logging enabled, both graphical and in text, to assist in the creation of After Action Reports by players eager to show the community their greatest victories or most embarrassing defeats!
  • Memory management issues with previous versions of TOAW under Windows XP have been solved. This now allows scenario dumping in the editor that caused previous versions to crash when running Windows XP.
  • Resource leaks in previous versions of TOAW found and plugged. You can easily run multiple copies of the program, and editor, without crashing.
  • Better treatment of nuclear attacks.
  • Several improvements on the combat system, so that low movement rate scenarios play better.
  • Anti-aircraft fire issues, where ranged AA did not work, and High altitude bombers were immune to AA fire in previous versions addressed.

  • ... and many more!
