        I don't understand the question. TOAW III has received a free upgrade to v3.5 Lots of players thought it was such an improvement that it could have been released as a whole new edition instead of simply a patch. As for the particulars of what was added or changed, I do not know. I haven't played it beyond a few test cases.

          What is the latest generation game similar to TOAW? They must have come up with new titles that follow the format.

            I haven't noticed any that encompass the wide span that TOAW does. TOAW covers many different eras (WWI, WWII, Korean, Cold War, Vietnam, etc.) very nicely. Flashpoint Campaigns is pretty good, but only covers the Cold War era.

              None. But try WitE or WitW.

                fully

                3.4 is the last update. 3.5 is long promised but there is no timeline for it's release. Actually 3.6 is in beta now and it appears it will finally incorporate naval warfare.

                I would have been very pissed off if they had pawned 3.4 off as TOAW IV. It was a major overhaul but it was the same game. New supply procedures that can be used or you can keep the old ones. Defense is much tougher.

                On the down side the fortification system was basically broken. Unofficial community patches have fixed these problems but scenario balance is very iffy in scenarios that have not been updated.

                Still an awesome game with a huge numbers of scenarios of all sizes and complexity.

                And I have never had any problem running it on any Windows version.
