I can't even install it on my Windows 7 PC. It keeps showing an error message that HDA\HD.dat can not be opened and AVG says it is a Trojan horse. Can anyone help.

For all of you struggling with problems to run SuddenStrike II under Win8, I wanna share with you a workaround I've found that worked like a charm for me.

### Problem: Error message if you start SS2 v2.2.

VStart Error: Can't load n2Menu_dll.dll: 126

Even if its said in most forums, that it is a well known problem, the fixes they provided don't work on Win8, neither for me nor for friends of my.

### Solution:
1. Copy the setup.exe from your SS2 CD or whatever, to your main directory of SS2 e.g. "X:\Games\Sudden Strike II"
2. Instead of running the game with "game_exe.exe" out of "\Sudden Strike II\game\code\Release" or a shortcut to it, which fails in the error message above, run the game with "X:\Games\Sudden Strike II\setup.exe"
3. A dialog should appear asking you to choose between "reinstall" or "start"
4. Choose "start" and the game should start normaly. Perhaps you need to maximize the window of SS2 manually.
5. Maybe create a shortcut to your setup.exe, to avoid navigating each time to your game location.

### If you are using the MultiModSwitcher to select and start mods do the following steps:

IMPORTANT: If you want to switch between 2 different mods, you have to choose "fix config" first.

6. After a restart of the MMS the vanilla version of SS2 should be selected automatically.
7. Choose your mod you want to play out of the dropdown menu
8. Don't do anything else in the MMS
9. Run the game as described in the step 2 to 4 and the game should start with the selected mod.

Working on a new Mod for Sudden Strike 3 Arms for Victory:

Modern Warfare. Warone3D

Each unit can be controlled independently or grouped in very large numbers.
Aircraft carriers from which helicopters and jets can be launched.
Ships that move about, can be directed, can be provided missiles, gun or anti air weaponry
Aircraft that can be landed and take off from the game map or off it.
Combined arms, air, sea, land.

The scenario possibilities are enormous, from very large scale World War III style battles to Vietnam helicopter borne warfare.

The scenarios I will provide units for are:

Indochina, Dien Bien Phu etc
Arab Isreali conflicts
Falklands War
Modern Europe (Yugoslavia)
Afghanistan (soviet and Nato)

The game also has the following advantages:

Very easy to use map editor for custom maps and missions
Unit editing, from creation of new units to adaptations of current ones.

I need the following help and people to join me

1. Promoters, to get the mod known and drum up support and interest
2. Map and mission makers
3. Researchers for modern warfare units
4. Model helpers. I can make the models but if you can improve the textures and tweak things a bit, that will be a great help.
