Total Conversion modification for Men of War: Assault Squad & Assault Squad 2 (TBD) .

Introducing a WW2 modification for DMS, 1C and Bestway studios title, Men of War.

The goal of 'Totaler Krieg 1939-45' is a unique one for an RTS title. It doesn't focus on balancing, or anything 'game' related. No, this modification's sole aim and goal is to bring the most historically accurate portrayal of WW2 as made possible by the GEM engine to your screens - "A total revamp and historical conversion".

Nothing is left untouched. All assets, models, textures except those such as fauna and buildings have been, or are being completely replaced. Each faction of each alliance, Axis powers, Commintern, and those of the Allied alliance will be represented in some form or another with no detail spared; uniforms, helmets, weaponary, soldierly equiptments, voices, soldier portraits, flags and other faction specific items will be present. Each individual texture has been painstakingly recreated with the greatest attention to detail and care in order to preserve the integrity of the modifications goal, and also to honor those who served and fell during the greatest conflict in history.

For those out there who have longed for a game which puts the highest emphasis on realism, regardless of the advantages and disadvantages exposed on the battlefield, then this work is for you.

Support me and you will be rewarded with an experience never before seen in a game.

Overview of 'Totaler Krieg 1939-45's Features

- Every faction represented to some degree, greater emphasis on the larger powers such as (Commonwealth, Soviet Union, France, United States of America, Hungary, Romanian, Poland, Italy), co-billigarent nations such as satellite, puppet and non-allianced nations for example, Croatian, Georgian Ostruppen, Belgian SS, French SS, Polish Forces in exile, French & Belgium forces in exile, Norwegian SOE agents, Spanish Blau Division, Austrian forces in the Wehrmacht will also feature.
- Historically accurate uniforms and equiptment variations for all nations, for all time-periods from 1939 to 1945, on both the Western and Eastern theaters of War.
- Weaponry and ballistic characteristics have all been incorporated to their realistic values.
- Each armed force of each faction will be featured, including the Army, Airfoce, Navy and other specialist force such as the Waffen SS

Rührt, Euch! Kameradens

Today I would like to officially announce the beginning of the long-overdue closed-beta testing. Finally after many years of deliberation, Totaler Krieg is in a state deemed playable by the masses. The Double Cross beta testing team, consisting of 20 members will now diligently commit to play testing the closed-beta, weeding out potential bugs and other unexpected issues brought to light during their play through. This is a momentous moment for the modification, as it means that a public release is now only around the corner. As such, in the following days, I hope to be able to present many new and exclusive in-game videos and screenshots with you as provided by beta testing team which will demonstrate the progress which has been made over the previous months and years.

Again I would like to stress the gratitude towards those members of the community that provide positive support for the modification, that is what helps drive the mod forward.

And now, without further or do, I'd like to exhibit a small selection of currently, not seen before footage taken in-game during my beta playtest build.

Thanks again to all,

A few questions: Are environmental textures being overhauled? Do destroyed vehicles/corpses disappear? Is damage related to hit locations? (on soldiers) Are the entering/leaving tank animations changed? Will experimental weapons be implemented? Has the vehicle repair system been changed? Will parachutes remain on the ground? Are there any significant UI changes? Will ammo trucks still carry all types of ammunition or can you call in specifics? Is it possible to destroy tanks through unconventional methods (like tossing a grenade in an opened hatch or using magnetic mines)? How gory is TK? Is it possible to have vehicle proficiencies like weapon proficiencies? Do grenades have a larger blast radius? Are there stretcher teams/dragging options to carry wounded personnel back to, say, a field hospital? Also, maybe ambulance vehicles? Are there horse mounted troops and artillery pieces drawn by horses? Despite popular belief, much of the Blitzkrieg relied on actual horsepower.Are there glider units? Is it possible to re-man a vehicle filled with the remains of the previous crew? I always found this a bit weird... Even though right now the mod is focused on the Eastern and Western European theaters, in the future will it expand to include battlefields such as the Pacific, North Africa, and even alternate history settings such as America or even Antarctica? On railroad maps, can you call in armored trains? Would it be possible to have naval battles? Maybe just with small ships but I am imagining U-boat battles and boarding parties...Last but not least, why are people complaining about the release date? With a mod like this, the longer it takes, the better it will turn out and the more suggestions you can offer. The development team are doing their best to bring us this glorious game, not for money or profit, but out of the kindness of their hearts. Please respect them and be patient.

I must say, I started following this mod nearly a month ago, and I don't even own a Men of War game, but I am genuinely impressed. The level of determination, attention to detail, and hard work put forth by Sturm and the other developers is astounding, and my excitement is building as the mod nears completion. I will buy Assault Squad for the sole purpose of playing this mod, as it is by far the most accurate and realistic simulation of the Second World War I have ever seen. It is rare to see a mod succeed as Totaler Krieg has and most certainly will, rare to see it be unbiased and respectful towards those who fought and died for their nations, and even rarer to find developers so civil, reasonable, hardworking, open to suggestion and historically knowledgeable as the fine gentlemen working diligently to bring us this astounding mod. They are doing a fantastic job and I wish to express my utmost gratitude to all developers and fans. Keep it up, kameraden!

It's just a suggestion but it would be nice with danish troops later on, as there were a brigade that crossed Øresund to sweden.

A comment with strong insults towards an ethnic group/community was just deleted. Beware posting this type of comments, since the guilty of a number of these unacceptable phrases could suffer permanent exclusion from the mod page.

Keep calm and enjoy the new german headgear!
