Is it still possible to get to the department of engineering? In the past I found this to be an invaluable source of information on scenario design. If not were else would such easy to follow information for scenario design available.

It was located at http://www.wargamech.ca/wc/acwgc/engineering/
However it seems that folder of the wargame.ch site is down.
I also can't access the upload site, will send an email to Gen. Desruisseaux,
my contact for access to the site and see if he can look into it.

I contacted Gen. Desruisseaux and he told me it appears the site is no longer supported.
My original reason for having it posted there was so this information would remain available
to the club in case I was no longer active.

The problem with locating the site on a "Free" website is they often have download limits
and since there is a considerable amount of info available for download I was hesitant to use one of them.
However I have since taken on a new webhosting site that should allow me to host it there and
since I plan to keep that for now I will move the site there.

I will be going on the Reserve/Retired list at the end of January, have decided to step away from things for a while.
So I am not sure when I will get the site back up but I will be staying in contact with Gen. Meyer and will let him know
when that happens so he can make it available again as club rules will not allow me to post once I am no longer active.
I will also make the files available to Gen. Meyer so that they can be backed up somewhere else other than with me.

A pity but good to hear that it isn't completely lost, thanks for your effort.

Hi, Ken,

I am sorry to hear you are leaving also.

I move that club rules be changed to allow you to share the benefit of your knowledge and experience anytime should you feel the urge to.

OK I've got the site transferred. You'll find the Engineering Department at acwgc-engineering.com

No new information, perhaps when I go on the Retired List I will see about adding the information I've collected on writing AI scripts.

Please adjust any club links to the new location.

Also if anyone in the club is still associated with acwgc.org I ask that you notify Notso or whoever is running things that I would appreciate it if they would take my pages down. They are showing up at http://www.acwgc.org/ACWco_engineering/start.htm
I found them while trying to get to the old site at wargame.ch.
I thought they had been taken down years ago and I lost contact with Notso in 2010. I am not maintaining them and they are not up to date with the current information regarding the files or the lack of support for HPS versions of the games. If nothing else I would at least ask that my name and email be removed from the site.

Thank you sir, I regret that I did not take the opportunity to get to know you better or play any game with you during our concurrent years in the club. I would certainly be open to playing a game now or in the future. It will be a lost to the club to lose your knowledge and experience. I can only wish you the best and thank you for you advise and help in designing games.

Sincerely with respect,
