Re: Erik's campaigns

On try #4 I was able to get a minor victory. I doubt a major victory is possible with the current scenario parameters - but that is ok. Eliminating every Jap unit in the jungle was not possible in reality either.

Re: Erik's campaigns

I've replayed this scenario with the attached screenshot in the Kokoda campaign three times and I cannot improve on a draw. This is a first in one of your campaigns. I think the 20 turn limit is too low given the terrain. The Japs have a ton of infantry and artillery. The Aussies have to move throug...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Started the Road to Kokoda Campaign. Thanks for covering something almost overlooked in PC Wargames. Learning about the interior New Guinea war zone, a theater not covered very heavily by US centric games. I found two problems. First, I had captured the exit to Kokoda early and held it. However, I w...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Erik: I completed the Desert Rats campaign. That was very interesting starting with very small raids and ending up in Tunisia. I enjoyed playing it quite a bit. One small suggestion on the very last scenario in the campaign. The US starts with 0 replacement points and the replacement rate is far low...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Found a minor error in the Desert Rats - first Tunisia scenario. I did not get credit for destroying all of the Vichy aircraft. I intentionally captured the last objective only after capturing every city on the map and confirming with zone of control. Unless there is a French Aircraft carrier lurkin...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Continuing to enjoy the Desert Rats Campaign. I ran into a continuing problem in (what I think is the) Battleaxe Scenario. The AI repeatedly had decision lock and would not complete its turn. I would load the "turn end" save and 75% of the time the computer would run its turn normally. I'm not sure ...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Erik: I've started the Desert Rats campaign and am enjoying it thoroughly. A minor issue popped up on the third scenario: Sidi Bardi. I got a minor victory because I "did not complete" an objective. You needed to hold two of four objectives - I held all four but did not get credit. Screen shot is at...

You may have fixed this - but here is a screenshot of the secondary objectives in Scenario 15 that did not work.

Re: Erik's campaigns

US Corps 1944-1945 - some general observations. I'm on my 3rd playthrough with an imported core army. I have a couple of general observations about the campaign. When you use an imported army, all of the available research tree is completed except for advanced aircraft. You pick up the research poin...

Re: Erik's campaigns

I'm playing US Corps 1944-45. In the Brittany Scenario (just before Aachen) I get a "draw" result after capturing all three objectives. The scenario (I think) believes there are 4 objectives. Attached is a screenshot after I got a draw result.

Re: Erik's campaigns

I'm enjoying US Corps 1944-45. Ran into two problems in the St. Vith scenario (first Battle of the Bulge scenario in the campaign). First, I got 24 command points for air units about mid-way through the scenario. German planes appear and bomb/strafe my units. Unfortunately, there are no hexes where ...

Re: Erik's campaigns

I finished your US Corps 43-44 - The Campaign in Sicily & Italy. As always, it was excellent.

Thanks!

Re: Erik's campaigns

Erik2:

I finished the US Corps 42-43. Greatly enjoyed it! Thanks!

Only one tiny suggestion - you might advance the victory if the US eliminates all Axis units on the map instead of clicking through the end turn to the finale. But this is a very, very small suggestion.

Graphic Bug Kharkov AA Target

I've encountered this twice in the first Kharkov battle in Red Steel. I have a target for an AA gun, I move the AA gun but the target stays on the screen throughout the turn and continuing in future turns. If you save and reload - the AA target goes away. Target stays on the same position on the scr...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Started playing the first US Corps. Really easy - until you hit Medjez El Bob. That scenario was one of the hardest scenarios I've ever played in OOB. Really well done. I got a major victory only after having my head handed to me twice. Third time was the charm. Only way I was able to win was to tak...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Erik - I have an observation on the US Pacific campaign for you to consider. If you win Coral Sea and sink the required number of Jap Carriers there seems to be no impact on Midway (where you face very long odds - 8 carriers?). Sink most of the Midway carriers (not easy to do) and you face overwhelm...

Re: Erik's campaigns

The carrier indicator worked out in the end (see screenshot). The Tugulai invasion indicator ended up being off. Eventually, the Jap surface fleet sank all of the troopships. I eventually sank the Jap surface fleet. The AI supply ships ran in and out of the harbors - and the indicators for the last ...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Been enjoying the Invasion of the Solomons (Watchtower?) scenario in your US Pacific campaign. I'm midway through attempting to keep the troop and supply ships afloat from the Japanese surface fleet and aircraft. Hate to bring it up because I'm enjoying this so much and you put it out there for free...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Finished the Coral Sea scenario and thoroughly enjoyed it. You are using a better map than the one used in the official campaign Coral Sea game. The Jap Battleships came very close to catching my carriers and sank several cruisers and destroyers. I have a suggestion for your consideration. The escor...

Re: Erik's campaigns

Finished the Rainbow Plan invasion of Wake Island with a draw. The scenario credited me with sinking 4 Jap oilers (I sank 2) and faulted me for losing two battleships (I lost none, but lost all of the US oilers). The weird thing about the scenario was having all of the AI controlled US Marines in tr...
