Re: Wargame: Ash and Shadows v2.19.5; Now with a Discord link

Hi, I love the 2.05 mod, I download it on my computer and it was really fun playing with it, I have been playing the 2.05 for couple of months and I didn't download new version of the mod when it was released, I try to download the 2.19.5 today but when I download the 2.05 back in June or July I got a folder icon, which have everything in the folder to install the mod. When I download the 2.19.5 today I got a paper icon and when it was finish download I click on it it give me a message saying "Choose a app to open with this" , I don't know what happen, maybe I download it wrong or something. For the 2.05 I just click the link and download it with no problem. Could someone help me solve the problem.

Did you already extract the archive? IIRC it comes as a RAR (like a zip, but with better recovery from errors in the file. Can't remember if it's more compression or not).

Also, welcome to the forums!

Honestly, I expected you to just reduce the rating of the CHAM-SU-RI instead of buffing it. :)

The player guide is missing the CIWS traits of the 20 point COASTAL CUTTER ship and the 25 point RIVER command ship.


I didn't think those two had CIWS, but I'll look again.

, I don't know what happen, maybe I download it wrong or something. For the 2.05 I just click the link and download it with no problem. Could someone help me solve the problem.


When you follow the link, you should see a folder like the one I've attached. Click on the file (don't right click and save as) then you should get the prompt shown - download anyway.

Is this what you're seeing?

Then you'll need something like Winzip to extract it. You can download and use winzip for free.

Yes that what I see and I click "Download anyway" but it download showing up as a paper icon, when I download 2.05 it show up in a folder icon after I the 2.05 is finish downloading I didn't extract the files I just click on the folder and it open up to the mod installer.
When I finish downloading the 2.19.5 I click on it and it say "Choose a app to open this file" or something like that, and I don't see the 7-zip like I say on the install guide and extract the files.

Do you have 7-zip installed on your computer? It isn't installed by default.

You can use any file compression/extraction program that is compatible with rar files. I personally use 7-zip (and so does the install guide), but there are many options. Here's a tutorial: https://www.howtogeek.com/73904/beginne ... -mac-os-x/

Once the file is extracted, you'll want to navigate to the folder you extracted them to and follow the install instructions from step 4 (steps 1-3 is just on how to download and extract the file).

I stayed with v1.x until 2.10 was out, so I can't say for sure, but it's possible the file type was changed from a zip file to a rar file. This would explain the change in appearance from a folder icon (Windows has built-in support for zip files) to a file icon.

I don't have a mac to test with, but the user guide states "Ash and Shadows currently only supports windows versions of WG:RD running under english language settings"

I'd probably try it and see; worst case scenario is that you can't and it breaks something.

A&S is not supported on macs. It will not run on them.

There was a short window in May before I had my desktop back when I was using 7zip, but I'm back on winrar now.
