Hi Erik,
in the syrian scenario, playing as Vichy french, I'm stuck at turn 7. Although I manage to play, when I click the End turn button ... nothing happens. Apparently I'm not the only one with this issue.
That is odd since I've played this scenario a couple of times without issues.
The game itself was updated since this. Sometimes triggers get broken in an update.
I'll check Syria.

I think maybe the new four player operation olympic ought to be three player, with two allied commanders and one japanese. Japan is already in a serious pinch so adding the possibility of miscommunication and / or poor coordination to the mix for them might make it unbalanced. No offense intended to my current partner of course! :)

It started as a 2v1 scenario, but I think the US have enough problems establishing beach-heads without a truly coordinated Japanese command making it harder.
The Jap factions make sense as one of the is regular army/air while the other is composed of mainly coastal, volunteer and suicide units.

Looking at it closer the allies do have a pretty tight turn limit, that probably makes it workable as 2 vs 2 after all. I'll see how I feel after the games have concluded :)

Yes, 30 turns may be a tad shorty, especially if the Allies are planning to go for the sec objs up north.
I chose 30 days as this was the original campaign goal reaching the pri objs.

I heard there's a new version of Operation Olympic 2 vs 2, but I don't see it anywhere. Maybe it was a misunderstanding? If there is one what are the changes, while it's early going it feels okay so far.

Olympic is still on 1.0. No issues has been reported yet.

Market-Garden and mines
If i want to save 1 turn for passing a river i can let the engineer/infantry discover the mines on the other side of the river then let recon/tank attack the mines and advance afterwards. Since US Army has the money there is no problem with repair. Saw one scenario 1vAI (Japan vs Chinese) where the minefield takes limited damage so the opponent cant advance.

This is a game mechanic, nothing that can be changed in the scenario to 'fix' this.
Personally, I think it should cost more (maybe 4-5 strength points) to move ninto a minefield. Or at least as many strength points as are cleared from the minefield (about 3?).

Yeah I've never really encountered a situation where mines make much sense. You could say they slow down an enemy, but saving your resources for something capable of actually destroying an opponent slows them down a lot more in my experience ;)

I wonder it it would make a difference if experience and fortification level was added to mines...

The current 2v2 is 1.4 and the Italian commanders are ok there.

I was wondering if anyone else had encountered an issue with the cost of reforming units. Namely if it's a unit with transport, like infantry with trucks, hovering over the unit to be reformed displays an incorrect cost that doesn't take into account the extra expense of the transport. I'm in the middle of a seriously desperate multiplayer game and think I just wrecked myself...

I have downloaded the version 1.3 from the community content inside the game. Is there a plan to upgrade it in a future game update?
