Ah well I can't say I'm too surprised by your response - maybe it's not worth pursuing. I imagine that the major obstacle would be how to find a means of feeding in the battle result back to RoP in a form in which it recognizes. When you are very, very old, as am I, memory dims, but I do seem to rec...

Engagement Question

Just musing. At the point in the RoP where an engagement is about to happen, battle or maybe skirmish, is there any possibility that the forces involved could be noted and the engagement played out with minatures, or, for example, the new H&M game which has an editor and the results fed back to RoP....

Good point regarding percentage losses. However, this does not detract from the fact that Frederick was an aggressive commander and a touch profligate in terms of his manpower. It will be very interesting to see how the outcome of battles is calculated in this game. On the one hand it will be necess...

Hi 1) Would infantry guns be counted as separated subunits? would they need separate replacement points from infantry 2) The Austrian 6pdr was the star of the war, being the first gun produced under the Griveaubal system, is that taken into the game? 3) Are howitzers represented as separated models...

OK let me have another go at this, but first let me say that this has now become, for me, a major issue - to the extent that it has begun to colour my overall perception of the game.

Sorry Calvinus - it appears my ISP has decided to take holidays from providing a service - I now get only a very occasional - and quick glimpse of the i/net.

Thanks Calvinus - I think it is really important to get this right.

I would go so far as to say that, as it is, this ending really is a game spoiler :( . ...

End Game

Must admit to being 'all of a dither' :wacko: . It is March, 1918, and for several turns I, as the Entente, have been in complete control of the game. Entente troops occupy Berlin and pretty well all the major cities of Germany as well as most towns/regions. Most of the rail network is converted for...

Can you try please with no sounds and no musics (WW1 Configurator)? That did the trick the game progressed, tho' in stony silence. Clearly a sounds issue.

The marker simply tells that the control of the area is different from that one of the railroads. I often re-converted railtracks of areas reconquered. :confused: Ummm.

I've scoured the manual which is excellent, but I cannot see an explanation of the Railroad markers which appear when a region changes hands and tracks are converted. I've never been 100% confident that I u...
