Last report for today: French AI do attack Metz in force on turn 3, which is a bit too late. I have to figure out.

And if I haven't said it already, many thanks to Altaris for this great mod! :hat:

I had noticed that the battle sounds in this mod are poor, almost non-existent. Here's the solution:

Extract the attachment (Sounds_Alias.ini) to WW1/Aliases -folder. The file is from RUS.

(I deleted the old Sounds.ini from the folder, although I'm not sure if it is necessary.)

The first line of a script must be startevent, only then the line about selectfaction.
Also you should Select again the faction before starting Actions (but after the entry "Actions")

Making the excel-files from scratch is just way too much work for me, so I'll edit text files. Not surprisingly for a noob, I haven't had success in creating the Battle of Fronties.

For your information, further testing shows that while unmodded Russian AI does a pretty good job, its French counterpart is ultrapassive, scared of the enemy. The latter needs much more tweaking, obviously.

How do you import data from the scen to make a proper, three tab excel-file?

My quick notes, based on just 2 turns against Entente AI: - Loetzen is missing a fort - some formations, like Richthofen's Cavalry Corps have no ammunition at the start, nor on the second turn - French are passive at the Frontiers on both turns (ie. no attacks) - Russian 2nd Army strikes at Thorn in...

Inspired by this mod, I copied the RUS-folder with latest version Fatal Years (which doesn't seem to be as polished as some of the earlier versions) to AJE main folder, changed the Modpath.ini to RUS, and the mod seems to run perfectly! Only problem I have noticed so far is that the replacement wind...

I should then back my new turn today Altaris, sorry for delay. NY Rangers, I believe you were in regular contact with Clovis, he seems he has disappeared from view, he moved to others games?

NY-Rangers, if you want to pick up a PBEM game at some point, let me know. I could probably squeeze one into my schedule (don't know if I could quite commit to a turn a day, but probably at least 1 every two days).

Ok, problem solved. I managed to get the code question again, and used AJE code as you suggested above.

Looks good! My first question is why Mackensen is "quickly angered", and therefore has a CP penalty?

I installed the mod according to instructions, but it won't start. After a few minutes it asks for activation code for RUS (!). I do have RUS installed, but can't remember its code. After restarting my computer I tried again, but nothing happens (while AJE.exe is on). What might be causing this?

On second turn my cavalry reached Paris yet again. Without artillery support the siege wasn't effective though. The gap in initial deployment, which makes deep cavalry exploitation possible, is the problem.

Do note that Liege may still fall on turn 1, because there's 2nd phase for besiegements. I didn't get that far.

(Also there was an error in one of my earlier posts. Mons is usually captured on turn 1, not on turn 2).

I had time for a quick test. Because of the fort at Namur I had to switch one II Army arty to reserve. It meant that Liege didn't fall on the first turn. Namur and Brussels did. My cavalry reached Mons (as per usual) however, so the problem are the gaps between Antwerp and Liege / Genth and Brussels...

Just checked, and according to "The World War One Databook" by John Ellis and Michale Cox, Belgian divisions were more akin to small army corps than divisions. Divisions 1, 2, 5 and 6 had 18 infantry battalions, and Divisions 3 and 4 had 24 inf bns. The Germans by the time had 12 inf bns per divisio...
