Today i bought "Afrika Kops" and played it to the map "Battleaxe" without any Problems with the difficulty of "field marschal". The patch 1.10 is installed.
The victory conditions for "Battleaxe" are: "Decisive Victory = Hold all objectives" or "Marginal Victory = Hold at least three objectives"
I destroyed in round 15 all allied forces AND i placed on all objectives axis units. After turn 17 of 17 i lost the game because "axis surrendered". I can only klick on "proceed" or "view battlefield". After i restarted the map the bug is still the same. Only difference in the second try: i needed 17 of 17 rounds to destroy all allied forces. What should i do to complete the map?
Btw: in the campaign 39 - 45 most of the names of the cities are wrong....another bug.
Sorry for my bad english - i hope i could describe the problem / bug?
I don't remember seeing this problem during beta, so this is something new. Could you please send me a saved game where you own all victory hexes, and scenario objectives are fulfilled? I'll check what's wrong there. email@example.com
I believe VPaulus is correct. I recall from beta that part way through the scenario, the tactical situation changes and victory conditions are different - this is related in an in-scenario message, though the "victory conditions" screen isn't altered.
A few moments ago i tried this map "Battleaxe" again ... and again the same error. Now i know when die allies you talked about are attacking me and i put some anti-tanks and ari to the town "Sidi Azeiz". The allies didn't take ONE city during their attack from the north-west. they only take the three fields in the desert (10/18, 10/19, 11/18) in the first round,, because in the first round no units from me are in this places.
i will send you an email with my savegame (name is "test") - my mailadress is firstname.lastname@example.org
The allies didn't take ONE city during their attack from the north-west.
But to get a decisive victory, you have to kill all of the allied units in their left wing/NW attack group. Holding Sidi Azeiz alone is not enough. This is conveyed on a message screen during the scenario; it says something like "...must be eliminated in its entirety." If you check the message log you will be able to see it.
Sorry - i though i wrote this already. i destroyed ALL units of this attack group within 3 rounds. in round 17 there are in my third try only 2 allied units left. One unit is in Sidi Suleiman (18/25) and the other in the desert at (23/30).
I wonder, because the message log is short. He didnt has the the order to hold sidi aziz. And this town is not marked as a target in the map. EDIT: And the trigger for victory condition asks for 10 axis flags on primary objectives and 1 secondary objective!

Why the second trigger line does not work? The condition is only turn 6 (begin of axis turn)
Usually I keep my saves from every turn.. but just before the last turn I deleted all previous... I have only the last one. Anywho.. I restarted the scenario and killed every allied unit on the map... and got Decisive win...
