Calming down the irate rookies

What do you do when the rookies execute a very poor attempt at some highly risky gambit, and pay the price? It seems lately this has been giving me the negative onslaught of being reminded every turn on how HORRIBLE the game is, and how Unrealistic, or Unbalanced, and how I'm just an UNLUCKY PUNK, e...

Re: LoS Bug?

I'm guestimating that either there is some sort of HIDDEN element that maybe got added here during the scenario creation, or there is some LoS glitch that maybe is due to how the vision-blocking terrain is set up on the sides of the squares involved. I keep running into this issue constantly when my...

LoS Bug?

I'm not sure what causes this, but I've pointed this issue out before a while ago.

In the Desert Fort scenario what would cause these two units to not be able to shoot at each other in these positions?

Good, not only did we stomp a bug, but I feel more sane now. Now if we can just PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE prevent the GUI from LYING to the user, and actually show the true count of ammo remaining? It makes absolutely no sense that I have to keep tracking this by pen & paper because the extra defensive...

Merr, I've been trying to experiment different openings on the DESERT FORT scenario as of late.

So these are where most the anomalies occur in my games. Hopefully you found (the glitch), because I still can't make sense a lot of times from what I see.

Grrr, I'm still just not (getting it).

I targeted a light fortification (hill). Turns out there was nothing in it, but there was a PzIII 2 tiles away. Yet my Hurricane again totally ignores going after it, and simply shoots blanks instead on the hill to give me that 3-tile vision run.

Alright, it just happened AGAIN in my next trial. This time my opponent put his 8-rad in the entrance to the fort, exactly adjacant to the center flag building. And yet my Hurricane once again avoids hitting the 8-rad, and instead straffs three totally empty tiles.

Hurricane Search Pattern

I thought Hurricanes were supposed to search in a 5x5 pattern, if there is nothing in the hex designated. I tried to attack CLOSE terrain. Turns out there was no unit in there, but there was an 8Rad 2 tiles away. But for some reason the hurricane still decided to just attack the empty hex only. Wond...

I don't like the squeeze/clutter. Prefer to have it on the CTRL hotkey.... so we finally have something USEFUL there. Also other data like spotting-range etc isn't anywhere in the GUI. These types of info windows have been around since the beginning of Panzer General.... it seems BA is quite over-du...

Max Games Limit

I'm wondering if perhaps the 20 game limit is a bit too restrictive. Some people may stick to just some of the smaller maps, which means they can burn through a lot of them quick on even an evening basis. This seems to be impeded by the fact that some players tend to take days before getting their o...

Well these are interesting issues. And is just a reminder to me how much I have forgot over the last year.

I guess if your opponent surrendered, then maybe you didn't get an email because there really was no more turn to make? I haven't played the scenario yet so I can't comment on balancing... but.. I believe flags dictate victory as a priority. The exception being... if one side uses ALL its units befo...
