Seems to me that since people are still in here posting over the last few months the game is still alive. It's a good thing. I always thought this implementation of Wargame's "Global Thermonuclear War" game was awesome. Good alcohol, chips & dip type of game late at night on weekends.

Funny, I am trying to figure out how the game is dead when there are still public games and this forum gets new posts daily....

I love the game, glad it's not dead.

It's like waiting on the elevator and it hasn't arrved yet.... and you are impatient... so you start clicking the button a few more times like it's going to make the elevator accelerate and arrive quicker. I saw a comedy skit one time where somebody did that and when the elevator arrived and the doo...

Here, download this file and put it into "Data" folder in game directory. If there is no "Data" folder, create it. http://www.filehost.ws/7avihv1gmn9k THANKS! I would have thought that this would be a native in-game option... nearly all games have "background music" an...

Great, thanks... now one more question. Can you turn off the background music (and crying, whimpering, coughing effects) but still leave on the sound effects (launch detected, nuclear explosion, etc)?

I am having a hard time finding all this stuff in the small manual that came with the game.

Any way to make it full screen?

Is there a hotkey, or menu command, that will make the game window expand to full.screen???

variable unit count is my favorite setting because it allows a little more custom taloring of your defenses. You may not have exactly the same number of ICBM's, bombers, subs, etc as your opponant.

General Beringer Announcement...

It would be neat to have a sound file from the Wargames movie where General Beringer announces "WE ARE AT DEFCON 1!" to play when the game actually reaches defcon 1.

I agree with a previous poster than most PC adaptations of board games bite. Risk wasn't too bad of an adaptation but just lost the "feel" the board game had I guess. Stratego really sucked because I didn't care for all the individual little different markers, got confusing at times tellin...

It's just a game people.
(or is it real? what's the difference.... )

you shouldn't be any more upset about this than when you take out a rook or a knight in chess... or tell somebody to "go fishing" in a card game... etc.

Just a game....

I think the technical description of what you're seeing is "ABM's", for anti-ballistic missles. In reality, during the time this game takes place (height of the cold war), there were little to no ABM's in the world except for the soviet union, as per the SALT II treaty limitations (part of...
