Re: Shelling of Sevastapol

How about this proposal then: those Arab units will NOT spawn if Ottoman war entry was caused by the Shelling of Sevastopol event to emphasize the "surprise" character of that event. In any other case these units will appear upon Ottomans joining CP in case of delayed British war entry to simulate t...

Re: Austria dead event crash

You can't find the definitions for these variables about kills and casualties in any specific file, because these variables, among many others, are stored in the game's internal table of variables which is created at the start of a game by a rather difficult to explain procedure. However you can dir...

Re: Austria dead event crash

I did not actually edit the savegame file itself which is impossible because of encryption.

I loaded your savegame and then changed the damaged value from "nil" to 0 while the game was running and then saved the game.

Re: Austria dead event crash

Looks like the bug was caused by a Russian land unit attacking an Austrian artillery, crippling the value for some reason.
I've not yet found out why exactly this happened.
At least I could fix your savegame so you can continue but until I found the cause of the bug the issue might happen again.

Re: Austria dead event crash

For some reason the casualties stat for artillery has become nil. I've seen that happen before in MP but was unable to find the cause because MP games are difficult to fix. But this is from a singleplayer game, right? If so, then I might be able to find a solution. Do you still have the last AutoSav...

Re: Shelling of Sevastapol

Again this is not caused by the event but rather by Turkey joining CP when British war entry was delayed. Since the CP player has direct control over whether British war entry is delayed by simply not attacking Belgium, I felt it would be too much to also have Britain lose Egypt because deploying tr...

Re: British surrender

I've combed the scripts in search of a possible cause for the mentioned severe British morale loss. The final "Kaiserschlacht" event could theoretically cause such a loss but as you said it was the Germans who were on the run, not the British. When that match is over I'd very much appreciate a short...

Re: Shelling of Sevastapol

The British DOW is not triggered specifically by that event but rather by Turkey joining CP when Britain is still neutral in multiplayer. I decided to have it that way to nudge the CP player into "surprise"-attacking the weakly defended Suez right away without an unrealistic buildup of forces. It ne...

Re: British surrender

Most likely Britain surrendered because of negative morale, the most common reason for surrendering. Did a major ally surrender the turn before? This usually leads to a major loss of morale. Was Britain already at 10+ collapse points? A nation that has amassed 10 or more collapse points will lose mo...

Re: NEW UPDATE 11.21 NOV10TH 2020

US don't have artillery techs because they can't build artillery. However I forgot why I removed their ability to build arty in the first place. :roll: I guess I'll undo that decision until I can remember the reason again. France and Britain can't build more subs because Entente players would inevit...

Re: NEW UPDATE 11.21 NOV10TH 2020

I found a workaround, it's not exactly elegant but it will do. See attachment. Is this bug from the "special scenario" match (all nations enter war in 1914) you are playing against user "unwichtig"? If so then it's no wonder that US has researched all technologies at this stage because they start wi...

Re: NEW UPDATE 11.21 NOV10TH 2020

Damn, I thought I fixed the "all stuff researched" problem before. This is PBEM again, right? What turn is it in your match? Are there other nations dangerously close to having researched everything within the maximum number of game turns left (max. turns = 64)? Do you remember if you played the "Re...

Re: Soviet revolution

I can't find anything that could lead to Lenin arriving and Soviet Revolution happening on the same turn. There's only one function that can trigger the Soviet Revolution and only after a delay of 3-5 turns (instead of 6-8 as mentioned in the manual) after Lenin arrives. Looks fine to me and should ...

Re: House Rules

I take it you are referring to the "Small garrisons" which consume 1 PP upkeep per turn. Russia alone has 57 of those "Small garrisons" equaling 57PP bonus production after disbanding all of them. You are right at pointing out that this is a problem which can only be solved by mutual agreement and b...

Make sure to keep port hexes free to allow any convoys in range to enter. Occupied port hexes may lead to erratic behavior due to AI pathfinding abilities being limited. Convoys that fail to enter blocked port hexes for two consecutive turns will be deleted. As for the Vera Cruz possibility, that sh...
