Regarding the Cheats & Hints.
Being a fan of the I-War series, also having found trying to get by can be a pain in the backside, especially seeing as how the majority of the I-War community has up and died- thought I'd post this here for those who would appreciate it.
If you go to this link: Link
You'll be at a page where you may download a savegame editor which is unfortunately not translated from German. (Or fortunately if you can understand German- failing that, go to Google.com, use language tools and type or copy/paste whatever into it's translator to understand it better).
However- it's straightforward.
Unzip the editor into your I-War2 directory (where the IW2EoCGS.exe application is located) and run it. Click the only option available, then choose which save from the dropdown box you wish to have fun with- then click "Screiben !".
Click through the options where the "yes" or "accept" buttons would normally be located.
A Backup is generated if you select the right option- but if you choose the wrong one it won't do it. So backing up your game before using the editor is advisable.
When you next go into the game, you'll find you have 99 of every single cargo in the game- including blueprints, turret fighters and masses of ammunition. Recycle, manurfacture- or even run the editor again to your hearts content.
