I have a problem with the Iron Man. The first day I tested it, looked like it worked. From now on when I try to host it , it says that I don't have all of the Iron Man maps.

yesterday was doom's birthday ..did blizzard even think about war2? prob some iron man flags has to be set for map beyond blizzard icons ..as iron man is the hardcore fast

which why they hasnt is beyond me as even EA cares of C&C and it was just acquired

the most remembered of any game in all of video game history is June 6, 1984 the date tetris was released

war2 stays at ef ..f was a thing back in the 90's
blizzards baby has been and always will be sc1..unless maybe a whole country falls in love with war2 but we are a sparse

Ive been using 4.5 for awhile and everything was good. Then randonly 1 day it just goes black when i try to open. So i figured i need to update to the 4.6 but it does the same thing. Nothing was changed on my comp

did doing a few double clicks with your mouse after you clicked the launch icon work?

or replace with one you like best

it says that I don't have all of the Iron Man maps.
All have 4.6 version? Older can't join 4.6 iron.

iron can not be hosted if user have custom icon

but someone with custom still can join in modes 2,3,4

---------------
II. New Game Types. Exclusive for War2Combat 4.6 and newer.
Attention: If you try to enter such a game using an incompatible version, then, at best, you will be thrown back to the channel.

1. New simple modes:
"Melee with Units" - same as "Melee", but with starting Units specified in the Map Editor;
"Free For All with Units" - the same modification for FFA mode;
"One on One AV with Units" - the same modification for useless "One vs One" mode;
"One on One AV allowed" - allowed allies and vision in "One vs One" mode(be default it is forbidden)
Why need that modes:
a. Now you can play with units specified in the editor, using regular(normal) units specs, and you not forced to use for it UMS or TvB modes.
b. The opportunity arising from this - to play real FFA on chop and some another maps with predefined units.
c. The opportunity to play any map with standard specs and MapDef Units even with Comps.


2. New Iron Man Ladder. Improved and bugfixed.
Attention: Do not uncheck "New Iron Man" option when installing War2Combat, otherwise the new IronMan will not be available to you even with the new game version.
When you start the game through "War2Launcher.bat" or after using "war2fix_limits.bat", you will at least have access to changing resources when creating the game and the ability to enter such games, but ...
Important:
those who have a non-standard icon on the channel, even after all the unlocks, will only be able to access Iron Man, but will not be able to host it themselves.
To host such a game yourself, you need to return the standard icon - ask some admin to return the standard icon.
Note, that You need to relogin to the server for icon changing take effect. Or just Create/Join some another Game Lobby then leave back to Channel.

The essence of the old IronMan mode:
Classic settings imply speed Faster, Low resources and a Random Map from the Ladder folder (13 fixed confrontations in total)
The old version has known bugs, due to which it has not gained much popularity.

Changes in the new IronMan mode:
35 Maps(mostly tweaked), 48 duel versions or 96 fixed fair confrontations in total.
Maps from this set ("\Ladder\...Random IronMan Duel") can be played in regular mode, but they are exclusively duel maps with No watchers.
A few additional maps "runners-style" have been added: two for GOW and one for POS, where at the game start you can choose to which mine to run.

Additional "Iron Man Ladder" changes.
Now there are 4 subtypes, which can be selected in the "disconnects" field, where it says "Counts as loss".
Important: do not pay attention that all four elements are called "Counts as loss", just before creating the game, select from the list the desired position from 1 to 4:
1 - "Standard" mode. One Peon, Random player color.
(players with non-standard icon can NOT even join such games. Ask some admin to return the standard icon if you need to host IronMan.)

another three options (2,3,4) are available for any player to enter, but only a player with a standard icon can host:
2 - "Standard" unlocked. One Peon, Random player color.
3 - "Iron With Units". Map Default Units, Random player color.
4 - "Iron With Units Red vs Blue". Map Default Units, Fixed player colors - Red vs Blue.

Way to check what's going on is:
1. reinstall 4.6 to separate folder
2. pack all folder war2combat46 to archive (using 7zip)
3. when problem appears compare archived folder with existing, to check which files differ

ps: installing into "program files" not the best idea
