Re: Struggling on GC '43 East

Even with the soft cap on I was able to profit 38k prestige in '43 and 42k in '44 so your campaign should be salvageable, especially with 200% prestige gain. I noticed you only have two captured equipment, make sure you're disbanding the others for full prestige during deployment and of course make ...

Re: 30 cm Nebelwerfer Defensive Fire Glitch?

I did some quick testing and found the 30cm to have the most devastating prediction as expected.

Re: Long range canons.

Also, on Ron Klages Panzer Forum there's an article called (I think) The view from over the hill. This describes the reaction of a german tank crew to being fired on by Shermans, which makes an interesting contrast to the American report which describes how ineffective their own shells were. One of...

Sounds like a relatively simple thing to fix for the developers, if they're aware of it.
Depends on the code. Could be trivial, could require a major re-factor involving many areas of code, could be somewhere in between.

Then there's the release...

Re: SUPER GREAT NEWS I AM ON YOUTUBE

In some of your other playthroughs, I recall you (sometimes) played both paths (i.e. one on a second save) and then decided later on which one you wanted to keep/continue with? Maybe that could be an option here as well... Would be my preference, if possible... Anyways, currently, you are already u...

Re: SUPER GREAT NEWS I AM ON YOUTUBE

A DV on either gives you the choice to go to either Kasserine or Sbiba otherwise you go to Sbiba. It's been a while, but as I recall, I preferred Morning Air although they are somewhat similar and you face similar numbers/forces in each. Prestige amounts are also the same except you get 40/turn in ...

Re: Victory Condition Logic and Goldap

The key to getting a DV in this scenario is to eliminate all of the Russian units west of the Pregel river. Did you view the map at the end of the scenario to see if there were any units you missed? I know there are some paratroops that appear in the far west, so, that's a possibility. Yep double c...

Victory Condition Logic and Goldap

So got an unexpected marginal victory in Goldap ('45 East) then pulled up the scenario file to see why. https://i.imgur.com/R8Xs0IC.jpg Does it check from top to bottom, going with the first match? So in my case I only satisfied the bottom decisive condition but also the marginal, the latter getting...

Re: Sealion 45

It's been a while since I played it but here goes: 1) Use strategic bombers on the US navy. You'll want to keep all your ships alive to use against the naval landings then later on shelling Liverpool and Manchester. 2) Paratroopers are good for capturing Exeter and Wales. They'll then block landed u...

Re: Grand Campaign West & East 39-45 (Manstein)

Your numbers are impressive! Thanks Pete. Admittedly there is some amount of humble bragging there :lol: but it should serve as a sort of benchmark. On a related note, lowered prestige difficulties like Rommel isn't a simple 50% conversion in the case of Rommel since disbands are 100%. Maybe 60% ad...

Now that '44 is concluded it marks the final full campaign of accumulation. https://i.imgur.com/Gn2unZI.png All of the dips are due to upgrades except for Korsun Pocket being so stingy.

Wow, what are these Soviet troop gatherings around the victory objectives in the west, the AI just doesn't attack or what is going on there?! :) This is impressive!
