Re: Battlefield: Europe MOD v1.9

Just wondering how you actually start this mod when you install it and activate it with GME? Is it supposed to show up in campaigns or does it just change the stock campaign? Sorry for the simple question but there is no indication as to how to actually start it in the readme. I have the Steam GOLD ...

Re: which version should I get?

You can get the entire lot for $44 CDN (likely about $32USD) right now on Steam. That's a no-brainer to me.

Re: Why the Canada hate?

For future reference to those not in the US, I picked USD when I paid instead of CDN and was charged $13.69 CDN on my card (the nominal rate), not the $14.99 you WILL pay if you choose CDN. I think this is a deceptive practice and Slitherine should inform people making purchases, or just eliminate t...

Re: Cliffs of Dover Strategy

It seems the brits have been given a modifier to make them much stronger than usual...maybe because they're defending their homeland? Not at all. They are not weaker nor stronger than the British infantry from the vanilla campaign and DLC '40. Also the unit parameters in the equipment table have no...

Re: Cliffs of Dover Strategy

Dice Chess gives +/-2 from the prediction (well, as far as I can tell), so you can't be certain what will happen but you don't get the really extreme cases. I started using it a year or two back because of results similar to the Vickers machine gunning my Panzer IVs to bits and my stress levels hav...

Re: Why the Canada hate?

We can argue the semantics of what rate should be used all day. When I buy something with my credit card off all the other sites that I pay USD, it's the cash rate plus 3% on my card. My point is why do they get more? I don't pay more anywhere else. I'd be even more upset if I was paying more when m...

Re: Cliffs of Dover Strategy

Yep, that worked. Got a DV this time. Can't believe I didn't see that beach to the SW. Pretty much landed the whole force there. The paras are all but useless in this one, unless you bunch them up right away and protect them. I thought paras were strong, revered units? The brit infantry slice throug...

Cliffs of Dover Strategy

Played it through 6 times now and I'm getting frustrated with this one. I'm losing too many units to the wildly inaccurate dice rolls and the Brit super-soldiers. Is this by design? Grateful for any ideas.

Re: Why the Canada hate?

Minor nitpick: With a conversion of 1 CAD = 0.75 USD, 9.99 USD equal 13.33 CAD, which is a little closer to 14.99 than the 12.49 you calculated. Still a difference of 1.66 CAD or 12.5% more than the US customer would pay. But it is really not that much if you consider the small total amount. Maybe ...

Re: Why the Canada hate?

I read all of that, thanks. It still doesn't explain the reason the CDN dollar is only valued here at 50 cents US. I recall a 65 cent dollar back in the 90's, but it's NEVER been 50 cents. As of right now the CDN $ is at 75 cents US. At $9.99 USD straight conversion it's $12.49 CDN, not $14.99. Even...

Why the Canada hate?

I just went to go and buy the Sealion expansion for $9.99 USD and noticed when I get to the purchase screen it has converted the price to $14.99 CDN? I've never seen a 50 cent dollar, so why the gouge job? The CDN dollar right now is at 78 cents US. If I were to buy it on Steam, it's $10.99 CDN, and...

Re: units never used

Strat bombers are the best units in the game IMO. Playing through the entire DLC for a 3rd time now, this time with 5 (14-15 exp) strat bombers, and it makes a huge difference. I eliminated 4 arty pieces and use the strats now instead.

Antiaircraft bug?

Recently installed the 1.14 patch. I'm playing AK, about mid-campaign. AA is now not 'always' able to attack within their range unless I move them (Flak and mobile AA). Sometimes they can, but most times not until I move them first. Could this be an issue with patching mid-campaign?

Re: Confused after updating PC and AK to 1.11

Well in theory no, but you can do it. The patch will analyse the version you've installed and if everything is correct it won't install. I didn't get any warning about the patch, and it did install it again. Noticed now that the intro menu went back to being the old one (it was the AK one) and the ...

Re: Confused after updating PC and AK to 1.11

I just bought AK. I have already installed patch 1.11 previously. As AK is only 1.10, do I now need to reinstall the 1.11 patch?

Thanks for the warning. I lost some of the useful italian units to ridiculously powerful air attacks, and the ones I saved are pretty battered. Is it worthwhile spending prestige on any of them that have more than 100 experience? Maybe I'll play it through again to make sure I take better care of th...

Re: Syracuse...how??

Thanks for the tips. I was doing some of that, but I had no idea that the scenario would end once all the italians were either dead/evacuated. Would have helped had I read the briefing again :roll: That makes things much easier knowing that. I was trying to defend to the end of 16. Will try it again...
