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.

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,

Loved the trailer, also has the logo on the page always been like that?

I've been watching this mod for a bit of years now, not frequently but only here and there for some time. Despite all of those times where people were angry and swearing at you about this mod, I always just waited patiently for more news about the mod rather than yelling in the comment sections.

Hope to see more soon, Sturmführer.

Will the mod include it's own campaign because I will find it difficult to make huge scale missions with the new weapon ranges?

Nice mod. I was looking through the pics of the units and noticed that back in like 2011 a lot of the units just had Call of Duty: World at war faces mostly Richtofen's face what was with that had a Dr. Richtofen obsession or something? Lol! Anyway the 2014 units look more built from the ground up I don't see any kinda other game content in them. But one of the officers/High command looks like a actor from the movie Valkyrie the officer with the round glasses looks just like the officer with round glasses and thats bald in the movie so don't know if that is a little "easter egg" or just a conquincidence but they look good so do continue.

Well spotted Gen.Walter_Oster, you are correct in your observations that alot of the older content was using Call of Duty WaW heads. Now however all models are, as you said, are built from the ground up (the only part of the model using external assets were the heads), there are plenty more head variations, haircuts with a large selection of wounded / dirt general texture overlays to give them a truly battle worn appearance.

Well if you want battle worn you took from the right game COD WAW has some of the most battle worn soldiers than any game. Also I'm surprised no one else spotted this. Anyway nice mod looking forward to playing the attention to detail looks very good there's probably so much time put into this cause this is MOW and not COH so attention to detail is a must the models look nice a clear doesn't look to be any kinda errors or anything that I can see so far.Looks really good and from what I have seen and read I would defiantly vote for this to be green lit.
