Re: Using the A Bomb

I used it once. It destroys everything within a few hexes, so I ended up bombing my own troops. I don't recall any movement restriction after that though.

Re: Error with In-game Update

OK -- thanks. Norton was blocking it. I don't know why, it never has before. Anyway, I changed the setting. All good.

Re: Error with In-game Update

I already have version 2.6.8 installed. Whenever I start up the game, I always click on "Check for Update" just in case you guys slipped one in on me. :D Was working fine until a day or two ago. Now I get that error. Nothing has changed on my end that I know of.

Error with In-game Update

When clicking on "Check for Update" [patch 2.6.8 - noticed over the past 24 hours, or so] I see this:

Re: What happened to Seabees in Allies campaign?

So, a simple question - have Seabees been purposefully removed from the game or is it an oversight? Patch 2.6.8 - no Seabees in the game for purchase AT ALL - yet, they are referred to in the new units notice & elsewhere. The only Seabees in the game, as the Allies OR the Marines are the unit at Gua...

Re: Display Error In Patch 2.6.8 - Individual Scenario

UPDATE 2: I am not sure, but it seems that if one starts a new instance of the individual battle scenario all is fine. If you RESTART a scenario, you get what I pictured above. Might be something the developers should look at.

Re: Display Error In Patch 2.6.8 - Individual Scenario

UPDATE: I started a new instance of the scenario and all is fine, as far as the messaging goes. All info is appearing as it should be. No idea why it wasn't in the first attempt. Will update if anything changes.

Re: Display Error In Patch 2.6.8 - Individual Scenario

This also applies to all the event messages that appear during game play. This, along with previously mentioned [in another post] Requisition Points shortages in the US Marines individual scenarios, make for very tough individual scenario play - especially for a newcomer to the game.

Re: The Order of Battle 2.6.8 patch is out!

Thanks for this! Just an observation -- I was in the 2nd Philippines battle in the Rising Sun campaign when I downloaded this new patch. I chose the "revert" option for artillery and my artillery seems to have more effect, even though I was in the middle of the campaign. Not complaining; I liked that!

Re: Individual Scenario play in U.S. Marines

I checked through some of the scenarios. Some are playable, some appear not - Guadalcanal: 25 Requisition Points???? I'd say those Seabees will be overrun in no time. Iwo Jima, on the other hand, looks to be barely OK. I hope that the developers are planning to fix this. I have always played entire ...

Individual Scenario play in U.S. Marines

Is it even possible to play individual scenarios? In the Allied campaign, you can play the individual battles if you so choose. In Marines, there are not enough resource points to play them. Is that a campaign only deal? Never tried to play a single scenario with the Marines DLC. Was going to bide s...

Iwo Jima - objective met, no aircraft appears

Version 2.6.7c - U.S. Marines campaign I was able to secure an airfield within the required 15 turns [all hexes within 3 of the airfield]. Notification popped up stating that I would receive an aircraft unit. However, it did not appear. I know a new patch is upcoming. Perhaps this can be looked into...

Re: Commanders without traits

I have never played as Japan, but I have not seen all those Allied Commanders ... where are they hidden and how do you access them in the game? I have earned a few, but nowhere near that many.

Re: What happened to Seabees in Allies campaign?

Have now gone through the entire Allies & Marines campaigns with the latest 2.6.7 patch. Not a Seabee to be had [other than the scripted ones]. They appear to not be available for purchase. Is this on purpose or an oversight in the patch?

Re: What would you like next DLC campaign you'd find coming?

I would love a Pacific grand campaign. Preferably with jap, but also US/Allied. After playing Winter War and having my hands on german units a german grand campaign is also high on the list, especially with a core german navy. The longer the campaign the better, since I really enjoy my core units a...

Re: What would you like next DLC campaign you'd find coming?

Seems the logical thing to do might be to just start at the beginning ... hopefully, playable as the Allies & the Axis. But, whatever they decide, I'm in!
