I fight with my troops in the last stages of 39 and will prepare for 40.

1. With the newest updates... these are the final packages of the update project or comes more?

2. If I finish 39...how I move my core troops to the 40 campaign part? Is it an automatic question/"klick" (e. g. "Do you want to use your core troops from the last campaign?) task at the start scenario of 40 or end part of 39?
1 Packages to download at page one are final, except for DLC 42-43 West or if any critical issue would be reported
2 DLC core import/export works as it always has; you will be prompted to import DLC 39 core at the beginning of DLC 40 campaign. The DLC upgrade project does not change anything to campaign files nor the GUIDs.

I finished today the part 39 with a victory at Narvik. Great fun!

The equipment file has a nice improvement...thanks again Nico!


One thing, which can be modified, is at scenarios Lillehammer and Oslo. There is a fighter plane "Gloster Gladiator" with the picture of the French/Belgian "West Allied CR.42".
Here you can choose an icon with a real Gladiator and Norwegian markings.

Somewhere to find...or I will make it next time.


Now go to the 40's! :twisted:

I was looking at your equipment file and was wondering?:
How easy/hard would it be to have in the details for every equipment type when you want to purchase something an extra entry somewhere that displays the rate of fire. I know you can look it up by loading (is it?) the equipment file? into a spreadsheet or something and looking through a long string of numbers but that takes ages and interrrupts your playing and it would be really useful info when purchasing it certainly affects.

Is it alot of work?, would you have to redo the purchase screen for every unit or JUST the ones where the rate of fire is not 100%? what do you think? is it suitable for a standalone mini-mod?

The vanilla Dijon scenario has two scripts that are supposed to alter the behaviour of the Allied units in zone 1 and 2, but I can`t see any of those zones defined on the map. Nor zone three which is supposed to trigger the second script.

Hi guys, to back up the original game files, can you just drag the entire game folder onto another hard drive?

Plus, the last time I did this I had a mess. Nice job Nikkvid with all this

I can only assume that the original developer wrote those scripts and then forgot about it.

I zip/rar the folder i wish to overwrite with the upgraded versions. Then i can easily revert to the vanilla version by unzip/unrar-ing the original folder.

Hi Nico,

with playing the GC update I checked the e-file and looked for new unit entrys and further ideas to conctruct new unit icons. You add also 'MG troops' and 'Ost troops'. Whats the idea behind? Seems to me, these infantry types should have a little better attack values than normal infantry?

Ost Truppen are volunteers mostly from Soviet occupied territory, not so well equipped.
MG Troop is similar to the Soviet SMG inf.
I had to be a little creative to add new units with the vanilla icons.

Ok, understand.

Nice theme for new units on the workbench...

Hi Nico,
I have a few battles to write up but i am jumping slightly ahead, I have found a small issue with the SS equipment file, I am on the AA raid in 44 and at the start the Tiger II becomes available, I have up graded my SE/SS tigers to Tiger II for 990 points each as well as a panther to Tiger II for 990. However when I came to upgrade the core SS Tigers to Tiger II the cost came up as 1900 each ! I am going to have to keep my SS Tigers as Tigers as it would wipe my points out to make the change.

Martin

The purchasable SS units have to be more expensive than the regular ones. If i change the values of the SS units, following your reasoning, than the SS units would cost the same as regulars.
