This issue comes with the game Millennium Wars Advanced: The Lebanon Scenarios. The game is designed by Michael Anderson, Joseph Miranda, and Jon Compton.
Millennium Wars Advanced (MWA) is a new wargame system that models a wide spectrum of modern conflict at the operational level.

MWA addresses the full spectrum of operations in modern conflict, including land, air, naval, logistics, information warfare, and special operations. MWA also deals with the impact of technology and doctrine on operational capabilities, modeled in the design as “Tier.†MWA systems are holistically integrated and generally use the same resolution system, but incorporate such things as insurgency, terrorism, cyberwarfare, weapons of mass destruction, and the political backlash effects of suffering casualties and bungled operations. Maneuver and combat emphasize mission effects over attrition. Each MWA game will have one or more scenarios, each showing a different historical, current, or hypothetical campaign.

This particular iteration of MWA from the soon to be released States of Conflict. It is a simulation of the various campaigns of the Arab-Israeli Wars of the last several decades. These are the two Lebanon scenarios included in the game.

Please note, the Terrain Effects Table on page 8 does not include images that align to the terrain type dots on the map. We thought that these images would be contextually intuitable, but it turns out we were too clever by far. Below is a screen grab that aligns the images on the map with the Terrain Effect Table (there are some things on the table which do not appear on this map, as these are series rules).

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
