Re: Fantastic game - here's my first impressions

I prefer doing the shore landings too. Leave the Japanese in fortified posititions along the beach and have the Japanese do the first turn. That way the defending player may opt to defend on the beaches or withdraw inland. On turn-2 the Japanese player may build MG nests and bunkers if there are eno...

Scenarios not installed?

Looks like the server check wether you have a particular scenario installed does not always agree with my PC. Note the Papua scenarios in the screenshot, one is black (ongoing game) and the other is red (not installed). For what its worth, I also have the '1v1 Burma 1942-45' installed even though it...

Re: random ctd every 3-6 turn ( V: 1.6.7)

Have you tried a clean install and then the upgrade to v1.7 ?
It is not clear (to me) in your post if you have done that.
Also, delete everything in the Settings folder.

Re: All equipment cheat??

Don't think so, what does it do in PzC?
Makes all equipment available independent of scenario date?

Re: China DLC

I've ordered a couple of board-games on the Sino-Japanese war to check out if it is possible to give it a OOB-tratment.
I don't know too much about it, so it should be an interesting exercise anyway.

I think the New Britain is my custom campaign. It is available now in the scenario section.

Re: Coming Soon: Extra Content Manager

Good idea, will make it easier for users to access additional stuff.
We would need some system to make sure the content is the latest versions.
For instance an announcement of upcoming patch would allow scenario designers to update their custom content on VPaulus' scenario vault.

Re: Is multiplayer any good?

I'm a big fan of multiplayer, I think I've got about 10 games going now. There is something satisfying about the unpredictability of human players. Note that players still take turns. You upload your turn and the opponent get an email stating it is his/hers turn. I don't bother checking emails anymo...

Imphal-Kohima

This is the third scenario in the Burma series. The Japanese 15.Army under Lieutenant-General Renya Mutuguchi launched an offensive in March with the goal to invade India. He had played a part in several earlier Japanese victories, and believed it was his destiny to win the decisive battle of the wa...

Re: Japan Torpedos Range

Capital ships usually don't inflict too many hits on destroyers, especially if the DDs are moving each turn. When the DD has a ready torpedo launch, dash forward within torpedo range and fire against a capital ship. The next turn, withdraw as far as possible and wait for the torpedo reload. Repeat &...

Bridges

I often have problems distinguishing between functional and blown bridges.
So I wish for a bit of bridge info in the terrain panel.

Re: Japan Torpedos Range

I think it was during the night battle of Savo (near Guadalcanal) that the US forces thought they were being shelled by cruiser fire, but the Japanese used the long Lance torpedo. It had a range of up to 40.000 yards if I remember correctly.
