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.

- 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

- Correct Squad, Section, Platoon and higher configurations of each army to match their war-time numbers.

- Completely overhauled Menu, interface, Ui and Music.

Thanks for reading & maintaining an interest in my work.

"The modification will be released as soon as all work has been completed in correspondance with the current progress report."
Will this modification be available for MoW, MoW AS or MoW AS2?

"The modification was originally conceived for the original Men of War, however I have now shifted focus onto AS & AS2. A Previous MoW beta version has been made available to closed beta testers, however that version has since been pulled offline."

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,

So now that assault squad 2 is out what you gonna do? Change over to the new game or continue with this one? Also i have a few kinda small ideas. Panzer divisions usually had their own emblem so can these be integrated on to tanks randomly. Also the feared Shultzstaffel they played a major part in the SS and are not put into many games which is kinda sad. They would have to be an elite unit and cost a lot maybe be a hero unit.

I donated too but to be sincere I would really really like to see Total Krieg to become a stand alone title of the MOW series, the spearhead of MOW series !

They deserve it as their work is professional, look around, this is more than a simple mod, so to be sincere I hope to see it on greenlight or similar.
I would gladly pay for it as I ALWAYS wanted to see the MOW series going toward realism and AS2 in this deluded me so much, having a realism MOW title would be my dream and I feel like Double Cross Studios are the only ones with the ability, WWII knowledge and passion to make my dream come true.

keep up the good work, you the best !

After reading the battle for empires page (ww1 mod turned "game") I ask you, please don't do that to the community its slightly absurd to me that that even happened but it is what it is. I ask you please don't do this to a community that has followed this mod fairly religiously for a few years. Heck I'm even considering donating because you all haven't done it up to this point. All in all the effort put fourth into making this game changing mod is astounding and your actions are commendable, the community is wonderful as well for holding out for so long. Best of luck.

Do not worry Dieter, I do not plan on charging anyone to play the modification in the near and foreseeable future, I too understand the loyalty of the fans and thus would not want to jeopardize that. If it ever came to the point where this modification was proposing to go on Steam Greenlight, I would be more than happy to provide the £100 needed to host the game on the site myself, and if necessary charge as little as possible, £0.00 if that can be done.

On question, will the Hitler Youth be shown in the game at all? I think they fought in the last days in the battle of Berlin and not much else, but I may be wrong. Seeing as how you'll have SS and the Volkssturm, I was curious as to what else kind of units you would have like them.

There is only one Allgemeine SS coat and Sturm made it dedicating it to one of DCS members, do not expect HY.

I am assuming you will have to wait for the Assault squads 2 version when the mod is released or use a 3rd party program like gameranger or hamachi.
