Red Star #3 - Khalkin Gol River - Zhukov's Strike

Red Star #3 - Khalkin Gol River - Zhukov's Strike Followed the general intent of the design and made a flanking attack, avoiding much of the enemy front line. Two task forces, north and south. The northern force dipped a bit south than probably intended but I was able to trap enemy aircraft which ar...

Red Star #2 - Khalkhin Gol River

Red Star #2 - Khalkhin Gol River Somewhat on the defensive now. Need to move fast up the middle to help the aux units (red glow) defend at least two forward objectives. An obvious choice of the two most-rear ones, the unlucky aux infantry defending the forward-most one is in for a rough battle. The...

Red Star #1 - Lake Khasan

Purchased the first two of what would be many BT-7 tanks, they are my bread a butter until Barbarossa when the T-34 becomes available. Also bought two artilleries and two infantry units with the remaining coin. I've found infantry effectiveness very lackluster so far, especially when attacking. http...

Red Star and Beyond (General Difficulty)

This is the Soviet trilogy on General Difficulty, which is 1.3x enemy strength. I actually tried modding it to 1.5x with a hex editor, but it just becomes too tedious due to the game's retreat mechanics. I also found the first three scenarios against the Japanese sufficiently difficult as is :D One ...

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

Huck. I see that you did this on Manstein. I have been doing my own research and think I have it prepared for a playthrough, but I would like to see how you handled a few areas I have questions on. Could you send me the raw replay of this match? Yep, just sent you all the 43-45 East scenarios on Ma...

Re: Difficulty Levels

So continuing from the above I able to able to change the strength modifiers using a hex editor by searching for the current array initializer above but in hex form: 0x9A, 0x99, 0x19, 0x3F, 0xCD, 0xCC, 0x4C, 0x3F, 0x00, 0x00, 0x80, 0x3F, 0x33, 0x33, 0x93, 0x3F, 0x66, 0x66, 0xA6, 0x3F You'll notice t...

Re: Difficulty Levels

I'm also interested in changing max difficulty from +3 enemy strength to +5. Taking a quick look at the game files and it isn't an easy change it seems but I think I found it in the C# code (Assembly-CSharp.dll): App.unitStrengthMaxFactor : Single[] Used By AITasks.KillEnemy..ctor(Double) AITasks.Re...

Also, there is no constant progression in core-slots during the Soviet campaign scenarios, so that leaves not much room for something luxury like strategic bombers.
How many core slots do you get?

Re: US Pacific #1 - Pearl Harbor

US Pacific #1 - Pearl Harbor Don't remember why, but a full victory was impossible here I think due to the difficulty? Went southwest then up northwest, no chance of making every stop. Doesn't depend on difficulty. Follow these simple rules for a "Major" win: "The jeep has to stay on the eastern si...

Boot Camp #4 1 Reload

Boot Camp #4 1 Reload Don't remember much about this one, apart from reloading some time late scenario after discovering that exp and officers are the only thing that effectively transfers to the next campaign, so focused on gaining as much exp as possible. Other than that I did enjoy this, another ...

Gates of Berlin

Gates of Berlin 1 Reload Reload on turn 7 after falsely assuming the enemy bridge engineers' inclinations towards attacks of opportunity. This seems much harder than the GC East version of this map, especially on Ultimate where your aux units have half exp while going up against +5 str. Fortunately...

Oh awesome! I followed your plan for Storming Stalingrad with minor tweaks. I will give you credit when I post the video's. Thanks for your awesome work.

Do we know the specific circumstance(s) for when the AI will buy new units during a scenario and if so what are they? What is the AI behavior for those units set to (default, attacker, defender, active)? also... What is "default" AI unit behavior exactly? Is it its own behavior or is it a generic pl...
