Hi Guys,

I missed out on the original version of this game but I finally
managed to pick myself up a second hand copy of the Complete Carriers
at War on CD.

The only downside is no manual.  Is anybody aware if the manual is
hidden away somewhere in the install (I've looked but can't find it)
or is it available for download?  I've looked over on the AU and US
SSG sites, but haven't had much luck.

Cheers

Mark

I bought it from NWS website, and they graciously sent a printed manual 
(with my name on it!) along with the CD. Where did you bought your copy?

Oh boy, I was waiting to see how long it would be until somebody
insinatd that, didn't take long.

Anyway, to answer your question, I firstly tried to purchase the game
via the NWS site and placed my order (it was still listed on that site
for sale), but I was contacted by Christopher Dean (?) who let me know
that he no longer stocks it because it became too hard to sell for a
profit because of the whole printed manual thing and the prices
charged by SSGUS (I ended up purchasing HPS Midway instead).

Anyway, I then headed on over the SSGUS (www.ssgus.com) website and
tried to purchase from them.  But I'm not sure if that site is still
being monitored because his purchase links and contact links result in
browser errors (I tried Explorer 8 and Firefox).  I also emailed the
guy directly about two weeks ago and haven't received a response yet.

I then tried that shop of last resort....eBay.

I picked up a secondhand copy that was advertised as used with no
manual.  I have received the disk and it is definately a
"manufactured" disk rather than a home cooked pirated version so I am
confident I have a legitimate copy (my day job is undertaking low
level data analysis on HDD's, CD's and DVD's analysing file system
artifacts so I know the difference).

Cheers

Well, the game itself is quite intuitive, but the manual of the "Complete" 
edition is useful if you want to design your scenarios - because it explains 
how to program the AI via CCAW "cards" system.

Hi Vincenzo,

Thanks for the info, I'll keep looking and see if I can't find one
somewhere.

The Complete Carriers at War
Does anyone have any opinions about CAW? I have wanted to play it for years. After digging out Carrier Strike by Gary Grigsby, I really wanted to find a copy to play. I recently saw that SSG still sells CAW. Is it still a good game? Do the outdated graphics hurt the gameplay? Does it run in WinXP? Are there any webpages to check out? All of the reviews are really old and dont mention how the game has held up, or how it runs.

Complete Carriers at war #2
I've had the original CCAW sitting on my bookshelf for years, and am now thinking about firing it up again. I checked the SSG US website and saw that the version they're selling now does run under XP; is this the same version I have?

Complete Carriers At War #3
I had a little spare change around the house and picked up the old CCAW collection from SSGUS the other day. I'll save the griping on the price, the inability to run the game on XP without Dosbox, and the poor print quality of the manual for another day. I'm more interested in user made scenarios that might still be floating around out in cyberspace. Does anyone know of any archived fan sites which might have these scenarios or do any of you have any you'd like to share? I know this is a long shot, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask. I'll be laying down what...

Complete Carriers At War
Based on a thread over on the war-historical group I have reinstalled CCAW after a multi-year absence. I've been trying to understand the whole WarRoom functions again and I notice on the bottom of page 131 it mentions that "There are regular articles in our Run 5 magazine (from Issue 19) on using WarRoom as well as other tips and scenarios for the game". Does anyone have a link to old copies of these issues that contain CAW or CCAW content? I've googled for them but haven't had any success.

Carriers at War
Does the snail mail version come with a printed manual or is that just wishful thinking on my part. I've ordered the physical delivery and have d/led the game as well, but didn't want to print out the 70 page manual if it comes with the CD. Mike, I thought twice about printing until I realised that the entire rules for this game can be found between pages 11 and 42. IOW you can print them out. Use 120% zoom and you'll only be taking up 3/4 of an A4 page. Owing a physcial copy of this game's rules will not be worth it. There isn't much in there which st...

Carriers at War II
Hi All, Just got hold of this title today. Didn't play the original, so the whole thing was very new to me. Played two battles, Pearl Harbour as the Japs (easy intro) and Coral Sea as the Americans. Pearl was a decisive (as you'd expect) and Coral ended up as a marginal victory for me. The game plays quite differently from UV which I had bought last month. Graphics are much better in my opinion, though for some bizarre reason I liked the clouds set up as hex fills, rather than woolly ones! UI is pretty good. It says something for a UI when one can pick it up and pla...

I didn't own the original Carriers at War so I was very excited about getting this game but I wonder if those who did own the original could comment here because I feel this game is missing something - maybe something left out of the original? After reading 10 pages of rules and learning how to launch an air strike/move my ships - nothing else - I earned a Decisive US Victory at Wake Island. Here's what I did: 1. Waited for my green auto launched search planes to find an enemy. I did nothing to alter this. 2. Once an enemy was spotted I clicked a red strike management bu...

CARRIERS AT WAR 2007: Multiplayer *rocks*...
Played a full-on game of "Philippine Sea / Raise the Dead" last evening between me and the Klingon-Attack-Wedge-Guy over my home LAN, me sitting at my IBM / Vista laptop and TKAWG taking my wife's Vaio laptop. The first thing to report is that SSG's multiplayer setup is solid as a rock. You just set one PC up to host the game, give it a name, pick a scenario and side, and the other player joins in. Bingo, you're playing. We had one disconnection as the Windows One-Care on my wife's laptop decided to fuck up ... but both PCs were set to automaticall...

I was looking for some information on Carriers at War, and I found this thread on Matrix's forums: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=1291698 After reading it, there are a couple of things that I'm worried about: 1 - It looks like there was a flaw in first version of the game, if one of your carriers launches a strike it becomes "stuck" on the same location until the planes return. So, it's impossible to implement any plan that involves launching your planes at one location and pick them up later at another one. 2 - When some posters mentioned tha...
