Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

If you selected that option: yes. If you selected "Download Only" (which I'm not sure is even existing) then: no. Best tactic is to donload and store somewhere else, preferably on an external storage device that isn't hooked to your machine permanently.

If it keeps on freezing/crashing, go post an official support ticket - there's something very wrong, but unless you give them your complete system details, they won't find out.

So, did you try CMSF? I'm downloading it at the moment to see if I can run it as well.

Good Hunting.

Thanks, got a clean download tonight. In this case the fourth time seemed to be the charm.

Where?  I need a bit more information what you're looking at, there are dozens of different options.

Depends on what you mean by "tiny". Minimum map size can be a few hundred square meters only, so I'd classify that as tiny. And you can downsize every formation to only a squad or two, so where's the problem? I suggest everyone FIRST reads the manual completely - that's gonna answer a lot, if not all, of your questions.

Dl'd flawlessly yesterday, set-up without a hitch, first scenario under my belt. What a beautiful job they have done. I love the detail they have gone to. Tanks rolling on their suspension when they stop, exhaust smoke coming out of the back, and smoke drifting across the field in the breeze, awesome. Now where's Dr Frankenstein, Im ready to face his monsters.
