Tactical Studies Series
 
A Note From Scott (May 2017):
Work on the TSS series of games has progressed to a point where I think that most of the major suggestions are implemented, and all known issues resolved. Over several months of testing, operations have been solid and feedback has been very positive regarding the new additions and changes. So I decided not to wait any longer, and am releasing the updates - starting with POA2, followed by TU.
 
However, I am still categorizing the new updates as 'beta' releases, due to the complexity of the system and the fact that I want to do more testing and data verification. I intend to have 'final' update releases soon. In the meantime, however, I would suggest that users get the beta release - especially if they've encountered any issues.
 
 


Thank you for visiting the TSS support page. If you experience a problem, please immediately exit the game (if it hasn’t crashed), and email the files “autosave.ops” and “Lautosave.ops” to HPS Support along with a note of what you were doing when the problem occurred. The more detail you can provide, the better our chances of recreating the problem and getting it fixed quickly.
 
Need accurate sun and moon data for your scenario (BMNT, EENT, moon percent, rise/set times, etc.)? You can find it here: http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/RS_OneDay.php.

IMPORTANT: If you have created your own TO&E's or other entries, ALWAYS save your existing .ORG file(s) before applying any update, or your changes will be lost when the file is overwritten! However, please bear in mind that by not using the latest 'official' files, any corrections or additions in them will not be applied to your system. In some cases you may be able to copy your adjusted values between your file and the 'official' one, depending on the Table and the type of data. However, if you aren't sure, please contact us for more information.
