Google Earth Versions

Thread summary as on June 19, 2012:

The version of Google Earth that works best with GEWar is version 5.0.
You can get it here: http://www.oldversion.com/Google-Earth.html (Windows only)
All later versions have more or less flaws, the most prominent one is an issue when loading the cities armies etc.: not all icons are properly displayed, you may have to refresh when you for example move to another spot on the globe.

here is an example image from version 6.1:


You may not use Google Earth's recent version 6.2, it does crash when loading the cities.

If you don't want to use the old version 5.0, you may try version 6.1, you can get it here:
http://support.google.com/earth/bin/...&answer=168344 (Mac and Windows)
Click "Google Earth (free version) Direct Installer Links". At least some players also observed the icon problems mentioned above, but no other problems were reported.

thx. Developers who spread the beta version of their program without asking the user if he prefered previous final version suck! If you ask me, installing final version should be default instead of beta versions.

indeed. the only thing that worked for me is to uninstall GE 5.1beta and install 5.0 then. I saw the user's kml files were stored.

I'm a bit confused
You say performing these steps doesn't work with none of your browsers?
That would be weird, I don't believe all your browsers are totally outdated. Firefox' latest version is 3.5.3 for example and IE 7.0 and 8.0 should work as well.

The URL of the third screenshot actually is this one.

If it's still buggy you need to tell in detail what the error message is, what OS you use etc. Possibly it isn't even a browser problem. But then feel free to open a new thread in the support section.
