Re: Surprise Ending to PBEM Game

It's difficult to comment authoritatively on the results you detail Colonel - the only PBEM I've played ended disastrously when my end of the exchange became corrupted. From that limited experience though, I'd already learned that playing against a partner pretty much invalidated almost everything I...

The East is Red

And so is the West and the South - if you're trying to introduce new commanders to local forces in German Africa. And that goes also for leaders portrayed as colonial. I've shipped Quade and Schnee (both officers who historically led local forces in Africa and who are represented with the colonial l...

Re: QuickFix (Version 1.04, Beta 1.03 May 12, 2019)

In the words of Mr Punch, "That's the way to do it!".

You should end up with the tag EAW 1.04 (Beta Patch 1.03 - May 2019). The labelling confused the hell out of me also but it was worth persevering because it delivered up a playable, if far from perfect, game.

First post in this forum, ET. And you're right about the older games. Altaris has gone out of his war to fix the really crippling issues and work around some of the minor ones, but EAW carries all the marks of having been pushed through development before its system could be adequately tested and re...

Aha, got you. I've just tried the link there and it worked, but only after I'd overridden Google's Drive's virus scan - so maybe there's a recognition problem somewhere.

Join the club. If it's the actual EAW 1.04 Beta (March 30th Update) you're after you'll find that in the eighth post from the top in the "Help improve EAW" forum. But if it's the Quickfix that you're looking for (as in your post header) you'll find that first up in the Tech Support forum.

Spaced Out

How does one go about inserting a space in the field when changing the name of a game save - e.g. Not Going Well unavoidably shows up as NotGoingWell.

Much as I could love this game, I could also end up going completely spare and assaulting random strangers out of pent up rage. But it's not the game itself that's enraging me, it's the difficulty in sorting out difficulties with the game. Because of the manner in which I'd botched my existing insta...

Re: Where Oh Where is 1.04?

Thanks Nik. I only have the one EAW folder these days so I'm going to have to figure out where and how I'm misdirecting the installation. Trial and error - or error and trial in my case. I'm sure it must be good for my. character.

Re: Where Oh Where is 1.04?

Follow-up question however. I've extracted the 1.04 and Quickfix into the EAW folder of my installation and run both. When firing up the game, though, it identifies itself as the 1.03 version - what have I done wrong or not done at all?

My best results have come from tempting the Serbs in a...

Re: Replacement Pool

I forgot to say that cost of this CMN replacement pool is much higher than usual! Yes. What Allies do you mean? If Serbia, then they have their own pool of replacements. Serbia does have its own replacements, but these are quite limited (see Altaris' post re the kind of CMN replacements available)....
