I have started playing PG from the start with the new patch ( in with Allied Corps) picked up some issues(or Bugs) I have not seen them in this thread so I think they may be new, if not sorry for wasting time.
1) in the PG tutorial no pictures of "Hero's" came up in the message box when awarded.
2) surrendered units did not give any points
3) the aux sdfk 10/4 AA unit had no movement sound

In the 1939 DLC so far
1) In the Game xxxx Forrest (sorry forgot to write it down) when a troop train surrenders again no points are awarded.
2) in the Modlin game when I forced the Armoured train to surrender again no points were awarded.
I am getting points when other units surrender (I am sure) just not these units.

These are minor issues and do not take anything away from my favourite game. Thanks for all the effort being put into PG and AG.

The latest patch states that you gain prestige if you force enemy to surrender. Is that only available if it is turned on in options, or is it necessary to start DLC campaign over to get that effect?

I'm continuing my old DLC West 45 on FM difficulty and every prestige point is very important due to hordes of american armor. However after installing new patch I don't get any prestige for forcing enemy to surrender.

Btw. thanks for the info on how to change UI :)

Edit: How much prestige would a surrender give to player anyways? 5, 10 points? Depends on the unit that surrenders I guess...

It can be changed in the gamerules file, but the standard value is 50% of the unit's value (includes transport and overstrength I think).

I just checked, it works in Allied Corps, but there are some problems with the new rules not yet working in the DLC (see previous pages of this thread).

Please note that the new rules don't yet work in the DLC's (a little bug that slipped through), it's being worked on. You were playing Allied Corps all the time this happened? Sometimes you will get only very little prestige, like forcing an Italian infantry at strength 2 to surrender. If you come across a situation in Allied Corps where you get no prestige, and you have a savegame from moments before it happened, maybe could you upload it?

You can save a replay after you finished a scenario from the ending screen just use the save replay button.

To load a replay just do the same as if you would be loading a saved game and then choose the replay tab to load a replay instead.

Aaah, okay!

But how long is the replay? The entire scenario that I´ve played before?

And the Replay-Function works in PanzerCoprs and DLC´s too, not only in AlliedCorps?

I just checked, it works in Allied Corps, but there are some problems with the new rules not yet working in the DLC (see previous pages of this thread).
I made a search and I didn't notice previous pages mentioning surrendering bug...

Anyways it's great news to hear this. Theoretically player could rank more than 1000 prestige from surrenders in this way in tough scenarios (if I am correct in assumption)? Maybe even more, due to large value of surrendered equipment.

I'm hoping a patch that gives DLC users this option comes out soon. I'm close to finishing DLC West 45 and prestige is needed now more than ever! I could win even without that, but that gives a game a whole new dimension :)

I'm not quite sure. Firstly Oleh Dir (special infantry received at Lodz) has got +3 initiative, not spotting. :wink: Initiative will be limited to +1, if the new rules are working with the DLC, but I assume, this is for random heroes not unique heroes like Oleh Dir (Initiative +3), Helmut Lent (Initiative +6), Walter Nowottny (Initiative +3) for example...

Yes - Sorry my mistake. I confirm +3 Initiative and +3 Movement and it is a random hero not a named one. Would I receive such great heroes on higher difficulty levels?

You're right it's only initiative, for some reason I thought it's also movement. And yes, the special heroes will unfortunately be even more overpowered... I liked the game better without them

AFAIK it's not tided to difficulty, at the moment 1.20 just doesn't work with DLC, you're efectively playing 1.14, when it gets patched you can count on max +1 Int. But depending on unit class you have higher chances of changing it's int through exp
