Does anyone here play this? I do not know how to 'place' units on the map. I have the ReadMe notes but I cannot find how to move units from a "Set up Units" window to a "Mapboard" window.

Can anyone illuminate me?

What program are you using? Vassal, Cyberboard, other?

It's not at a standstill. The developer posts monthly reports. It's just taking a Duke Nuke'em Forever to get done.

It is a demo version of the Matrix game, I think - I downloaded it ages ago whilst browsing but have just got to try it. I might even have got it from ADG's website.
It has three scenarios out of a possible 12 or so.
Perhaps it is actually early Beta and dosn't completely work...?

Thanks for your replies

That must be CWiF, the computer World in Flames developed by A.D.G. before they began MWiF with Matrix in 2003. It is in an unfinished state but playable I heard and can be bought from A.D.G.

Don't believe it is available for purchase. Least, it isn't shown as such on ADG's website.

That has jogged my memory, I believe I bought it from the ADG website, I remember emailing Harry Rowland, anyway enough about my terrible memory.
Does this mean few else have it and can help..?

Yes, I found the link. It is in the "Have Your Say" section of the ADG website. It appears the link is now dead. Did anyone else download it whilst it was there?

AAAAANNNNNNDDD......it is still available, $20. Look in the "Online Shop" section...then "World in Flames Games"...then "WiF (the original Computer game).

If someone now buys it, please let me know if you find out how to place Starting Forces...

Ok. I worked it out. When setting up you are offered units to scrap, and I was trying to place them from this window, but no you have to wait 'til after that.
