Re: Beta 4 (Release Candidate) release notes

Did a quick proof read of the Bomber section in the Library. Only noticed one area I'd suggest a change to. Under Blenheim, change "and little armed" to "and lightly armed". This change will also keep the entry consistent with the B-17 entry, which states the bomber was heavily armed.

Re: AK: Brevity

I was also a bit confused by the pop-up message in this scenario. It seemed (to me) that it added more objectives, but the wording was very vague and thus I didn't grasp what was happening. Still, I assumed I should continue to go after the VP hexes, and this indeed seemed to win the game. Again, I...

Re: Pop-up messages

Like the idea of the pop-ups. Haven't run into the problems that have been mentioned with the pop-ups happening during the AI's turn. They have come up (so far) during my turn or on the turn summary screen.

Re: AK: Ras el Mdauuar

Finished this one on my second attempt on Colonel. Got a DV on that try after losing the scenario the first time around. Before going in the second time, I disbanded the towed AT unit, upgraded the Italian infantry to Bersaglieri, added a couple of Pionieres and a 15cm sFH18 and concentrated the set...

Re: Beer And Pretzels!??

I always thought the reference was from boardgames. A bunch of friends gathering for a casual evening of wargaming with Beer and Pretzels like Axis & Allies or the Avalon Hill Boardgames. It is from the world of boardgames. The term predates my involvement with hex and counter games (about 35 years...

Final line of briefing should read "so you are incouraged to bring more than a few infantry formations into battle here"

rather than "so you are incouraged to bring more than few infantry formations into battle here"

Also, "incouraged" should be "encouraged".

Re: GC39 Completed.

I have just come across my first bad scenario... 'Stonne the French' It is really, really, really boring. Luckily I had a choice of mission so was able to load a previous save and choose the other scenario. Only thing I can think of, is that the dev was having a bad day, when he made Stonne the Fre...

Re: Has anyone got a decisive on Arras on FM setting?

Just FYI, looks like Slitherine was hacked last night. Check out this thread: viewtopic.php?f=58&t=32608

As I don't play on FM level, I'll let someone else take your game question.

An option would be nice, as most people are probably used to having the avatars on the left.

The stated plan is to try to release the DLC's on a one a month pace. Looks like the 42 DLC is on track for the end of this month, which if they keep to it will have all released by May. As for Africa, there have been a lot of requests for this one and I'd guess it's in the plans, even if they can't...
