And my post isn't necessarily a criticism, it could be me not familiar enough with the rules.

This is a very boardgame type computer game (for obvious reasons), which is definitely not a criticism. It reminds my of my misspent youth :neener:

However, nearly everything can be prepared for the interphase long before you actually reach it This is my impression as well, which as a long time wargamer causes me confusion :blink: I think the confusion lies in what the effects are turn to turn and what the effects are at the end of the interph...

I don't know if this was happening to you but I was under the impression that only picking Germany to research tech was the way to go. It so happened that I misread the manual and both Germany and Austria can research. After that my trench level went up and I'm now at Chlorine gas. I found that out ...

Sud Army

I have the Sud army in Bulgaria with two corps in line and two in reserve. I've tried to incorporate Bulgarian corps into the Army but I cannot because of the error of "different nationalities". The manual says that Sud Army can command foreign corps without distinction.

What's going on?

The manual says that Grand Offensives are planned at the end of the previous year


I don't know why the manual says that because I don't think it's true. I'm playing the campaign scenario and planned my 1915 grand offensive in 1915, not the winter of 1914.

That's a good point. What exactly is done during the interphase that isn't done during a normal turn? I know redeployments happen once a year but you're prompted to do that by the game.

13 Corps in Reserve

Was playing a turn last night as the Kaiser. I attacked an entrenched French stack. The Battle screen popped up and I saw the number (13) next to the word 'reserves'. I only had one corps in reserve in the attacking army and 5 corps in the GHQ. It turns out that the reserve had other army HQ reserve...

There's an automatic conversion of railroads of controlled areas at the end of each Interphase.


Aha! That is why the conversion Sprites disappeared in Begium.

Yes, I was referring to railroad conversion in the tooltip. If I can't remember if I've converted a railroad in a region then a mention in the tooltip would be nice.

Railroad Conversion

1) When you conquer a country, do the railways automatically convert to your side? 2) As an improvement, I would like to be able to click on a region and have the tooltip tell me who controls the railway in the region. It's tough to remember if I've been converting railways or not. 3) According to t...

I downloaded the latest patch. There is no delay clicking on the mini-map and scrolling is a little faster.

What about Grand Offensives? Since Begium is considered friendly territory I am not allowed to launch an attack. Is this WAD?

Questions on Control

Situation: Belgium has surrendered. I have a couple of German corps in the Dinant region. They have been there for several turns. The control marker flag still shows the flag of Belgium. Is this supposed to happen? There is a British unit in northern Belgium. It has been there for several turns- yet...

Yeah, as someone who's completely new to this, something as easy as Reinforcements took me several hours to figure out- the manual that I have has no mention on what button to hit. I slapped my forehead :bonk: when I found out that the button was right there on the unit.

It's definitely a puzzle.

As an update, I clicked "low color" or whatever that is and disabled just about everything not related to actual gameplay (sounds etc). The scrolling sped up. :)

So, I tried the fix. Nothing really happened - it's the same speed no matter what I choose. Also the same 2 second delay when clicking on the mini map.

Am I the only one?

Not a game breaker but frustrating all the same.

(edit) I am playing the gold version.

I'm not sure, but if you move the slider on the right, you increase the lag time for map scrolling, instead of decreasing it. So move the map scroll slider on the left...

Is the map scrolling supposed to be very slow? I have the speed set all the to the right. I've disabled UAC, Installed and Ran as Administrator, tried loading the whole map at the start, disabled the sound. Nothing speeds it up.
