Re: Newcomer to the game. Please help

Hi Pete and welcome aboard. On Point 1, I think you're half-way home but maybe falling at the final hurdle. Playing the CP I had the bright idea of shipping off a corps or so to stir things up in the Far East and encountered the same difficulty you describe. As you've noted, the redeployment option ...

Re: Invading Serbia

I find Serbia a really tough nut. Even with heavy artillery on hand it can take forever (well, it seems like forever when the Russkis are breathing down your neck) to crack Belgrade - and then the pursuit eastwards is no walk in the park either. 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)....

Re: Replacement Pool

It's been a while since I rolled out the game, Ed, but as I recall CMN is a contraction of "Common" and indicates that the replacement can be used for the major nation involved or any of its allies. I think the actual cost of a CMN replacement point is greater than that for a specific nati...

Re: How to transport land units by sea?

Thanks! But, I just want to transport British units from England to France, to a friendly port! What order do I need to give after departure of transport convoy? Same, "distant unload", correct? If that's all you're after I'm sorry to have overloaded you with extraneous detail, Ed. In pri...

Re: How to transport land units by sea?

Bargo's pretty much got it covered there, Ed. One point I'd emphasise is that when your transport fleets are depleted by damage or lack of supply their transport capacity will drop. So if you're getting frustrated trying to load a unit onto a fleet and it just won't work, that's probably why - hence...

Re: Known bugs list

The Mediterranean Blockade issue certainly isn't a game breaker, but for the anal retentives among us it can trigger a bit of a tanti. In my own case I take great care in shifting units and targeting recruitments in the five or so turns leading up to the OE DoW so that I can pull maximum advantage f...

Re: Known bugs list

I think it's entirely reasonable to demand fixes for a game that can't function satisfactorily without them, and the fact that they haven't come in the several years since it's release only makes that demand more reasonable. I'm not looking to beat up on AGEOD here - I'm actually an AGEOD fan. I bec...

Re: Known bugs list

All true enough, but cold comfort at the consumer end. So, given the difficulties in finding new permanent staff, would it not be possible to hire on temps to work up specific fixes for specific games? Here in EAW land, for example, Bohemond is being pressured (even if ever so politely) to provide f...

Re: Conquering Africa as the CP

I'm with you Barg. It's not the sort of thing you'd dare try against another player, but it adds a challenge that in a small way compensates for your game advantages over the machine. When playing without Schlieffen I've found it possible to ship four divisions into the theatre before UK entry witho...

Re: Star missing - Objective or not?

Just dropping in to link to your earlier "Known bugs list" post. The 1.04 Beta does eliminate a bunch of the bugs present in the 1.03.1 version. Although it warns of possible instability problems I've not encountered those to any great degree.

Re: Known bugs list

Unfortunately we've not heard back from Altaris so I think we have to figure that that that door's closed for the immediate future at least. Clearly you still care about the game, though, Templar, or you wouldn't be here - so I think we agree that despite its troubles there's enormous unrealised pot...

I've seen a variation on that. OE at 100% at end of turn, come next turn no DoW and alignment reduced to 99%. Would seem to confirm your analysis, pants.

While I'm waiting for my new installation to prove out - or otherwise - I'd like to try me hand at a little gentle modding. Some of the generals' traits don't match my reading of their histories so I figure that would be a place to start. Can someone please point me to a list of the codes for the va...

Re: We all Live in a Yellow Submarine

No - Pocus has passed on our request but nothing beyond that. Reading between the lines a little I figure Altaris might have more to concern himself with than begging letters from fans.

It won't hurt us (well it will but not fatally) to sit tight for a while and give the lad some space.

Re: We all Live in a Yellow Submarine

In that vein, the Ultimate Enhancement Mod looks sensational, and I gather it's playable as a two-player setup.
Keep at it Nik - it's members like you who keep this game alive.

Re: We all Live in a Yellow Submarine

Okay, can't hurt to ask. From what Pocus has said, however, Alta isn't exactly in top working order. So if he is able to push anything our way I think any fixes might have to be "outsourced".

Given that the game is now clearly in their "What, that old thing?" basket, might we not prevail upon whomever is now responsible to liberate the database. I'm happy to carry that forward if someone can shoot me a contact point.

They don't even rate a mention in the manual. Logic would dictate that they have some role to play otherwise why include them as a distinct class, and apart from sopping up damage hits the only thing that seems reasonable is anti-sub. Tried running a few tests with various light cruiser+destroyer v....
