Re: need the path to V65

Unfortunately, there's not much more help we can offer here. If it's not in its default location as specified by JoeMiller, then it literally could have been placed anywhere when you installed it. The best options are, as suggested by RussW, to check the location of the link in your Start Menu (if t...

Re: H&M score and enemy presence update 1.11

The manual is still correct in this regard. Remember, however, that your intel on villages, through their flags, isn't necessarily up to date unless you've visited it that turn. The flags are really showing you historical information that might have changed since you last visited.

Re: v1.11 bugs/issues

There was only 1 nva unit at the start of the turn, it attacked my infantry getting wounded, they moved to the left and attacked again loosing this time. Next turn there was again only 1 nva unit but it was in other place visible to me so it must have spawned that turn. It sounds like the second NV...

Re: How do we delete Saved games?

Is there any way, other than reinstalling, to start with a new character or uniform? There's no way to do this in-game right now, I'm afraid, but you can do it manually depending on which version of the game you're playing. If you have the standalone version, purchased directly from Slitherine, the...

Re: Artillery Bug

If you're playing on PC, you can find them at the following location: %appdata%\..\LocalLow\Every Single Soldier\Vietnam 65\saves You can enter that path directly into your Start search bar in Windows and it should take you right there. In the event that it somehow doesn't, with default settings on ...

Re: Artillery Bug

We are aware and working on shipping a fix for an issue that causes rocks to be created underneath your US main base, which will prevent you from loading them into your helicopters.

Re: Vietnam 65 unbiased comment

More specifically, the helo will collect supplies from whichever base will make the total mission length (to base then to unit) the shortest. You can always override this by selecting a base yourself instead of a unit, if it doesn't go to where you want.

Could you also please confirm for us that this medal shows no progress for you on the uniform screen either? The star representing the achievement in the list should be partially filled.

Re: [BUG] - Bases can still spawn on rocks.

Indeed, it turns out I foolished only fixed it for half of all maps, and it still had the potential to occur on the other half. I have a proper fix that's ready to deploy, and will be in the next patch release.

Re: How does VC affect H&M exactly?

VC units can engage in one of a few kinds of missions when created. One of those has them enter a village and directly lower its score by some value between 5-10. You will need to prevent them from entering the villages in order to stop this.

Re: VC running across the map to get away

I think it would be nice if you swapped the animation to the individual VS soldier figures from the unit each running away in a different direction and disappeaing on the edge of the hex. This should be a clear enough visual indicator for the player that the VS unit dispersed. This has long-since b...

Re: Combat odds?

Terrain has no impact. The attacker only, strictly speaking, matters in indirect combat, where there is no chance of receiving damage in return even if the engagement fails. Only one side in the engagement will suffer losses, but VC units always disband regardless of combat results. The combat resul...

Re: Combat odds?

In the interests of being transparent, our combat calculations are actually really straightforward. Your odds of success are simply: unit_strength / (enemy_strength + unit_strength) This is ONLY modified by your unit's experience level, where 1 is added to its strength for every level of promotion. ...

Re: Unable to build ARVN units after loosing a forward base

You can only deploy 2 ARVN units per forward base. Flags will raise at the base to indicate how many have been produced so far. Each base can only sustain that many, so if you've reached the limit you will not be able to train any more.
