Re: Would you use an understrength prototype?

Probably not. I assume they'd have to be new units as far as the list is concerned, as 5 core slots for a 5-strength unit would be abysmally bad, but it might as well have 100 HA for all the difference it'd make in terms of killing power at that point in the game -- it wouldn't score more than 2 kil...

Re: Bug Reports

How does an AI damaged unit go from 2 strength in one turn to 13 the next? This would take me a 3-4 turns. Once to reinforce to 10, then 11, then 12, then 13. Why is the computer able to reinforce to max strength? The max reinforce is 50%, so if it is a conscript: 2 > 12 > 20, 2 turns to full stren...

Re: Bug Reports

Overwhelming Attack only works if a unit can be made to retreat, despite what the tooltip says, so if the entrenchment level is above base it won't have any effect. Presumably this is intentional -- it's ridiculously strong as it is.

Re: Questions on Industrial Connections Combined with Retrograde

It is a form of counter to Retrograde, but it doesn't use Retrograde's list, which most Wehrmacht players consider an advantage (as it effectively allows you to get access to units much earlier). It will not give you prototypes of units that are currently unavailable to you due to Retrograde. This s...

Re: How to disable automatic Un-mount?

Halftracks are valuable for the extreme bonuses to SA (although the extra HA doesn't hurt either) and the ability to move and deploy in terrain such as hills or forests, which isn't possible with trucks. Unfortunately, merging units still forces them into mounted mode even if both detached units hav...

Re: Spanish Civil War Strongpoints: Mucho Problemo

Interesting to note more than a few players asked about these border edge minefields and bunkers. Which is fine, mild curiosity is better than original GC where a ton of people were really unhappy about enemy units materializing on top of them. That is one complaint that I've yet to see from anyone...

Re: Spoils of War

Is that screenshot still accurate to parade around? My understanding is that prestige was broken during BETA testing as difficulty settings were NOT affecting the lump sum injections at the start of each mission.

Re: SCW Ebro - need ideas

This seems to be a mission where the lowest difficulty might be a little harder in some ways than other difficulties. I wonder if that means "Race Against Time" is easier because it will cut the mission off 5 turns sooner. Yes, with Guderian on the last few waves barely have time to activate before...

Re: Spoils of War

Captures should simply be modified by difficulty like everything else*, so prestige actually becomes something of a concern on Generalissimus. ATM a 370 prestige AA gun is worth ~330 prestige (or ~760ish with Trophies), but with difficulty actually affecting it this would drop down to 67 on Generali...

Re: Spoils of War

For my own part, I do not claim you NEED Trophies. I claim it's the easiest way to negate the prestige penalty. And therefore will be taken a lot. Of course it is, but why is that a problem? There will always be an easiest option, which is why those who want prestige to require some work don't pick...

Re: Spoils of War

Trophies is ultimately just a crutch for those who can't gain enough prestige w/o it -- it's not and has never been necessary to beat Generalissimus, let alone FM, much like AA Veteran is a crutch for those who can't handle aeriel combat (unless you're using Denied Air Force and/or Manstein, in whic...

Re: Galland

When I ran the numbers you could get the Verdeja, Galland and the last cache at Madrid w/o taking the prestige hit, assuming you cleared every bonus objective, so it's not that bad. Another way to look at it is that if you took the Verdeja and declined the sink you can't miss more than 2 Commendatio...

Re: Equipment Points

In the case of core slots they can be changed using the console, though -- setany max_core_slots X -- although as the value is normally set by the scenario you'd have to keep using the cheat every new scenario; I don't think it's possible to increase the limit permanently short of editing the scenar...

Re: Captured equipment

Capturing equipment is already ridiculously profitable, though -- you get the full prestige value of a unit modified by its current strength when you capture it (unless you're using Trophies, Scavenger etc, in which case you make even more). It doesn't cost you any additional prestige to deploy them...

Problem with getting experience.

So I started playing the Spain dlc two days ago(fm edition on steam using latest version of pc2) and I noticed that my units are not gaining any experience.
The experience is capped at 2.5 stars (2500 experience) in SCW.

Note that the Nationalists reinforce using your prestige, so losing prestige during AI turns is not uncommon.

Re: Bug Reports

You can certainly stop it from spawning by blocking all the assigned hexes, but there are what, 9 or 10 of them, and you'd have to move half your army backwards to do so, so it seems an odd thing to do to say the least.

As per the topic. I've tested using both my old beta save and my new FM access save, and neither worked -- I'm not getting anything. The achievement rate for every single difficulty is 0.0% according to Steam, which suggests I'm not the only one with this problem. The update fixed the problem with t...
