The MSN games zone has recently withdrew gaming support for Axis And Allies as well as many other older CD Rom games.
In an effort to continue the growth of this great game, Axis And Allies World Club (http://axisandalliesworldclub.org) has a resident programmer that has created a free place to play called the War Zone. It can be downloaded here: http://home.centurytel.net/khb/aa/WarZoneInstall.exe
They are also many generations beyond the 1.3.3 patch. Currently we are using the 5.1 patch. This patch creates a secure dice program, allows multiplayer support using current direct X systems, fixes minor bug issues, allows team chat during multi player games, etc. You can download this free patch here: http://home.centurytel.net/khb/aa/AAStarterPack51.exe
Included in this starter pack are simple tools to heighten game play such as an odds calculator, unit lock patch, IPC editor, ect. I would not install the D-Play version changer unless you are using a European version of the CD.
This starter pack and War Zone are provided for free by the gaming club Axis And Allies World Club to strengthen the community. There is no requirement to join whatsoever. All is done to continue support for one of the greatest games ever made.
At least until Mr. Harris decides to release a new CD covering all editions, Pacific, and Europe!
Face to Face is nice, but many of us dont have a gaming group near by, this is yet another reason for Larry to consider getting his board games on a PC version. I sure hope it happens and some company will take on the assignment.
Thanks again for creating the WARZONE online AA room.
while online though, I could get in a game every night time permitting...
so my question for Larry is, what are chances of getting these games computerized as a bundled set??? My quess it would be an incredible success, but I guess a corp marketer knows better...whatever!!!
It had some wonderful things, ie creating your own custom units, different start up senerios, a custom senerio. 3 hit destroyers??? aa guns that dont fire!!! arg!!!
funny thing is that this sells for over 100$ bucks on EBay, IF you can find it....
Larry needs to make the AA game world easier to access for his cross the world fan base...Playing AA online is great fun...
Larry, why not go to the WARZONE, and see for yourself...make a cameo to your fans there...find some way to get all your games ONLINE !!!
do a remake for the PC of 1942, of NLF (really want that one for online)

Larry needs to make a new computer game with all versions of his games on one CD, with complete servers built in like any real game has... ( look at activision and EA and how they do it) no stupid GAME SPY crap
In this we get fixed version of 2nd edition, revised, europe, bulge, pacific
all fully compatible with XP
and editable to allow for house rules etc on each.
plus it could have PDF of player aids and rules for each game so while playing the boardgame version you can easily reprint off a nother copy of what was lost.
and please no RTS thing. Let Andre B. just play that as it is.
somehow the world of online AA is stuck in the 80's...
Who is online
