THIS SCENARIO HAS BEEN RELEASED ON THE SCENARIO LEAGUE WEBSITE: You can find the newly updated game zip V1.1 files and screen shots at http://sleague.civfanatics.com/index.php/Battle_of_Iwo_Jima_1945 GAME INTRODUCTION: " PACIFIC FLEET HEADQUARTERS, (AP) -- Hawaii , Monday, February 19, 1945 Marine forces under the command of Lt. General Holland M Smith, Commander, Fleet Marine Force Pacific, have begun amphibious operations against the heavily defended island of Iwo Jima. Vice Adm Richmond K Turner, Cmndr, Task Force 51 issued a statement exclaiming: "Iwo Jima is the most heavily fortified and capably defended island in the world. It will be a tough fight." As the Commander of the Marine Expeditionary Force you are in charge of "Operation Detachment". Will you be able to liberate the island while limiting your casualties or will your forces be repulsed by the fanatical Japanese defenders? " The scenario covers the battle of Iwo Jima. The game lasts from February 19 to March 16, 1945 with each turn representing one day. There are only two protagonists, the Americans and the Japanese. The game has been designed to play ONLY as the Americans . There are a number of house rules and game concepts, all designed to enhance the scenario experience, that the player should familiarize themselves with before beginning to play. As such, please read the scenario's ReadMe PDF file first. The scenario has been designed and tested on a 64-bit PC computer and should therefore work on both 32 and 64-bit platforms. If you have a 64-bit computer you will need to run MastermindX's "Civ2XP64Patcher.exe" patch after starting the Test of Time program but before loading the scenario. I have included the patch and instructions on how to use it in the zip files. If you prefer, you can also download the patch from the CivFanatics forum http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=193215. I hope you enjoy the game as much as I liked designing it.
