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.

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.

Point Of Attack 2.0 / 2.5
10 Sep 21
This update is designed to work with any previously installed version of POA 2.0/2.5
 
The installer will search for the locations of the specific install folders as necessary. However, for highly customized installations, users might need to install the update to a temporary folder first, and then copy the files from there to the actual (existing) folders.
 
NOTE: The Default Version installer may hang on some systems while searching for the proper install folder. If you get an lock-up or error message - please individually install the 'No HPS Shared Update Version' followed by the 'HPS Shared Files' update instead of the Default Version.
 
Miltary/USG Users: Download and install this update, then email HPS to get additional version-specific update files.
POA_Update_2_5_20 (Incl HPS Shared).exe DEFAULT VERSION: Updated game engine and databases - including the 'HPS Shared Files' common to all titles (TEC; GeoBuilder; Tactical Mapbuilder; and others).
 
Use the 'No HPS Shared Version' (below) instead if:
   - This installer gives an error.
   - You already have current 'HPS Shared' files.
POA_Update_2_5_20 (No HPS Shared).exe NO 'HPS SHARED' UPDATE VERSION: Updated game engine and databases only. Does not include the HPS Shared Files.
 
If you are using this install because you received an error installing the DEFAULT Version - please also download and install the HPS Shared Update from the Common File section at the top of the page.
TSS Change List.txt Change List
