Q: Sometimes, when I play multiplayer games I receive "Game out of synchronization error"
A: Unfortunately it may happen sometimes. We will address this in our first patch.

Q: Is the game too hard or I'm doing something wrong?
A: We designed TZAR to be a hard game. AI doesn't cheat and it's still one of the most challenging AIs available. The main goal was to make TZAR a good game even for experienced players. To newbies we suggest to play against small number of opponents on easy level. To be a good player you have to know very well the game mechanics, technologies and most important - unit bonuses.

Q: I can't find information on unit bonuses somewhere?
A: We made a file which contains the needed information. Download it from the "Downloads" section

Q: I have slowdown problems.
A: It may happen if you have wrong drivers. Try to update your drivers with their latest versions. If this doesn't help try to turn off the DirectX usage from Setup program.

Q: How can I rotate gates and bridges?
A: While dragging them press Alt and/or Control keys.

Q: Can I ask the creators of the game anything I want to know?
A: Yes you can, go ahead!

Q: Is Tzar a Realtime strategy?
A: Yes it is - the best one with RPG elements.

Q: Can the units carry items?
A: Yes, they can.

Q: Is the TZAR using Dirct3D or OpenGL
A: No, TZAR isn't using such kind of things.
