Re: Version 4.0 Can't take Omsk

What is the supply level of Omsk? Is it down to red name yet? That can be achieved by strategic bombing. You should be able to make 2 tactical bomber raids on the city per turn. If you're using your best experience damage units then you should be able to get about 2 hits per bomber. You can attack O...

Re: Having issues saving a game

The latest MAC OS version (High Sierra I think) messed up the old Java input boxes. That is why we introduced automated passwords based on your PC or MAC ID's. This way the code won't ask for you to create a password and you can play PBEM games. I think it's the same with save games. You just use th...

Re: Turn takes forever

Are you playing against the AI? GS v4.0 is not written to support the AI, just PBEM or Hotseat. I know some people have completed games using the AI, but it takes a lot of time to complete turns since every move of your opponent is shown to you. It might be the AI was faster in vanilla CEAW and that...

Re: Crazy glitch in current PBEM game using 4.029

I posted a fix to v4.030 a month or so ago on the forum for some obscure bugs. It's a change to game.class. That must be added to the PC version and a new MAC version must be created. Link to this post is here: http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=90064#p807009 This is what the actua...

Re: Bandar Pahlavi

Yes. The file is Windows only. I have to send the update to Pk867 so he can make an update. I had hoped to get some feedback that all the fixes are working before sending to him because in the MAC version you have to replace all files so it's a bigger job to redo if you find that not all worked as i...

For the fix to take effect you need BOTH players to use the new file and go back to a save file from before Egypt surrendered. Otherwise the state of Egypt is messed up

Re: ceaw 5.0

I think the current game engine has extended its usefulness. The engine is almost 15 years old. So it would be smarter to make a strategic WW2 game in Europe and the Pacific using one of the newer game engines available with better graphics scaling, dialog boxes etc. The success of the original CEAW...

Re: Sea Movement of Allied Air Units

Air units must be adjacent to a port to be transported just as land units. There are airfields you can use to fly bombers across the Atlantic. At some stages the Allies get access to airfields on Greenland, Iceland and the Azores. Those make it possible to fly across without the risky sea transport....

Re: New British units can be placed in Cyprus, Malta, and Gibraltar

Yes. That is correct. Italy can place units on Sicily and Sardinia too. UK can deploy in Belfast as well. One of their major naval bases was in Belfast. This is controlled by settings in general.txt. If you alter general.txt you can set 0 on the unit types you don't want to be able to be placed on i...

Re: Deploy Bug for Allies GS 4.0

Crossing Russian and Allied units across Persia is deliberately hampered to prevent exploits. Before it was normal to see the Allied player sending huge number of units into Russia to stop the German advance. Stalin would not have allowed that. E. g. it could otherwise be possible for the Western Al...

Re: Deploy Bug for Allies GS 4.0

Paratrooper units get their special upgrades for free. That is no bug. The reason for this is that the core unit is a garrison unit so the para units will normally get the garrison upgrades and have to pay for them. However, the special bonuses we give to para units from tech more than garrison are ...

Re: Deploy Bug for Allies GS 4.0

Download this file for deployment issue on airfields. Now you can't place land units in the Gibraltar or Malta airfields.

This fix also fixes the unit spawn when Egypt surrenders and Bandar Pahlavi port unload.

Re: Commander EAW Grand Strategy V4 Issues

Grand Strategy is not made for play vs the AI. Therefore the game behavior can be strange when the opponent is the AI since the AI code is based upon the original CEAW version. E. g. the AI won't take advantage of amphibious landings, conversion of units to SS or paratrooper and so on. You can also ...

Try out this file for the spawn issue in Egypt. It's important that BOTH players install the fix or your opponent will cause the spawning from happening since he has the old file. I would also go back to the time prior to the fall of Egypt (Cairo and Kuwait Axis controlled) to prevent any spawns fro...

Re: Bandar Pahlavi

Bandar Pahlavi was linked to a supply depot instead of a rail depot because there was no rail link to the port during WW2. However, supply depots only have supply level 2 and the unload button required supply level 3 to be lit. I created an exception for supply depots. Please try out this file (it's...

Re: Sealion and Axis supply

I need a save game to check this. It seems to me that island supply is used for the Axis units landing in Britain. That means you have to be adjacent to a resource to get supply higher than 1. Does this change when London falls? Then Germany should get normal supply. Maybe it's not so bad as one wou...
