Replay spoiler

Hi folks, I've noticed now that I play PBEM that the routed % given at the start of each replay shows you how well or poorly you have done before you actually watch the replay. This takes away all the suspense from watching the replay. Why can this information not be given at the end of the replay? ...

Re: Endsieg SS Resource Points

FWIW the current beta has a couple SS RP objective bonuses cut towards the late cam. Still routined players will probably have enough as there has to be some room for various players, approaches etc.. Basically you get a CP-limited force which otoh is not that much constrained by RP. Which is ok IM...

Endsieg SS Resource Points

Hi folks, playing through the Endsieg campaign I'm always asked at the end of each scenario if I want to transfer 100 resource points from the Wehrmacht to the SS. Yet the SS is barley capable of deploying more than 3 or 4 units and has a huge number of resource points in reserve. I'm just wondering...

Re: Endsieg bug (more like a quirk)

Save attached just before the start of the scenario. The message appears but no commander portrait is shown top right.

Re: Endsieg bug (more like a quirk)

Another problem. Start of 3rd scenario (Smolensk 43).This commander is shown as being available but apart from this message there is no sign of him.

It's also a pain to try and upload images to this forum. But you get the idea :)

Endsieg bug (more like a quirk)

Hi folks, even though I hold all 5 secondary objectives in the second scenario I am told I only hold 2 of 3. When I exit the game and load my save I am the told I hold 5 of 3.

Re: Crash

A bit of a coincidence that I thought I've played for hours now without a crash and 5 minutes later the games crashed.
Files attached.

Bridges and rivers

Hi folks, I'm always confused by bridges and rivers. River hexes show as open ground but I assume the penalties are as mentioned in the manual for being in a river hex? On a bridge hex some show as open ground and others as towns. Do the river penalties apply for these hexes as well? If not what if ...

Re: Sun Hero

I've moaned about similar things in the past. Last time having no idea I would get reinforcements. I did - a pleasant surprise but in real life they wouldn't be a surprise and I could plan for their arrival - not necessarily knowing exactly when they would arrive. It seems a bit variable. I've just ...

Sun Hero

Hi folks, I just played the last scenario in this excellent game but was losing badly after five turns on my first attempt. I didn't have enough units to the east. Second attempt I won easily. Where on earth should you place your units when given no information by the scenario description about wher...

Re: Crash

Hi folks, I thought I should come back to this thread and say that I have played about 30 hours of the game since the crash post without encountering another crash. Not a good start but all has been well since. Maybe there is something odd in the first scenario or two or maybe I was unlucky with a c...

I agree, People's General was a great game. I would not mind seeing something of that nature done after the OOB runs its WW2 course.

Re: Disruption penalty

I've seen noone quite often but I always thought it was due to people typing too fast and not hitting space hard enough.
Thanks for the replies chaps. I thought I was losing it as I was sure i used to see the number at the end of the movement path.

Disruption penalty

Hi folks, I've been playing Sandstorm for a while and realised that I was not seeing the disruption penalty at the end of the movement arrow anymore. I thought maybe it was because of the desert terrain but now I'm in Malta and its the same. If I click on the terrain info for difficult terrain or wo...

Weird game

Playing the Malta scenario and suddenly many more ships of the Italian Navy appear in the middle of the battle. Right in the middle of the battle as if they were transported in by alien dropships. As CINC you would think I might have some idea that a huge fleet of my own ships might appear. I like t...
