Re: How big are the maps?

Thanks for the updates. Hopefully the lock can be removed (even a 'cheat code' to do away with it).

For the number of maps, I *believe* it's 4 of each size so 12 total for Skirmish maps.

Re: How big are the maps?

once you finish one set of maps on the small scale you progress to the next size, so it's a reward tbh and only needs doing once, then you can replay as many times as you like, if everything is unlocked on day one, would you do campaign 6 mission 6 first knowing it was the hardest? or jump straight...

Re: How big are the maps?

Note that the Medium and Large maps are 'Locked' (presumably until you win some of the small). Unfortunately, the small map skirmishes are completely uninteresting IMO...no room to maneuver, no cards to mix things up, and only a 'kill the bad guys' objective (ie, no territorial objectives available ...

Will we see all of the new/KS content include for Quick Battles and Editor scenarios in the future as well? :)

Re: Are the decks customizable too?

Thanks for the info! ;)

I guess I waited a year or so for the game, I can make another month or so till the cards are added. :)

Hopefully the PC/iOS version will continue to grow as the board game grows as well!

Thanks again for the response.

Are the decks customizable too?

Hello all, I've been eagerly awaiting this release since it was first teased over a year ago. My understanding is that it was to be a direct port of the board game. My question is whether or not the decks are customizable (and more importantly, if card play is included at all). I saw something on BG...

Re: How to port BA1 to BA2

Yeah, I prefer Western Front to Eastern as well. But I don't think you can necessarily 'port' BA1 to BA2. From my understanding though people can mod the Western Front units in. Presumably they could then begin to add campaigns etc. Hopefully Slitherine will release a Western Front pack with all of ...

Re: Update to Combat System

Whereas I totally agree that it's the height of 'cheese' to use tactics like that (ie, exploiting the auto-fire routines in a ridiculous way), if you deploy in a 'realistic' manner the damage that can be done from those tactics can be minimized. For example, heavy tanks like that should not be deplo...

The original poster is still active and working on the MP version of the mod so hopefully he'll be able to re-host it soon. If not, I'll see if I can find a place and zip it up and send you a link. :) I'm actually hoping rf900 revisits this version with the enhancements detailed in the first post. T...

The third 'True/False' entry appears to be whether the nation is a 'Major' nation or not. For example, setting that flag to True for nation 3 (Ottomans) and they are a playable nation with manpower and production etc. They can buy all the normal units but there is no picture for Ottoman Privateers. ...

Re: Rommel in Normandy: Initial Assessment

Making the game harder without being annoying is difficult when you have all the cool stuff on a tactical level. You can give the AI bombardments and air strikes but then it becomes a lottery and more about whether the bombardment takes out a tank or not. We didn't find it a good mechanism as there...

MG34 Sound bug?

Hi all, I've noticed that the MG34 seems to play the .30cal sound when it fires. I looked into the Sounds directory and the sounds that are listed as MG34 sound appropriate but they are not being triggered in-game (which plays the .30cal sound). I looked in the 'Squads' file but I can't see in there...

Re: BA Multiplayer skirmish mode with unit production (WIP)

Hi, OK, just finished playing a quick hotseat game with a friend as the Axis (he played American). It went pretty well and was a whole lot of fun! The things we noted: 1) We both received 'script errors' every turn. It said our scripts differed even though we were playing on the same PC...odd. 2) Si...

Re: BA Skirmish mode with unit production (Beta updated v2)

This is a fantastic mod! And it's exactly what I'm looking for out a game like this....simple, repeatable battles with purchased forces. Any chance of retrofitting the 'random map' script for this? And as others have mentioned, being able to play Axis would make it even better. ;) In any case, I jus...

Re: Early Christmas Gift - Random Quick Battles!

Quick FYI for people wanting to play these quick battles...

If you remove/rename the AI directories in the downloads, the 'default' AI seems to work OK. Is it a work of genius? No, but at least the enemy comes out and fights and can do a credible job if things break correctly for it.

Today, I decided to get back into the game and grabbed Gates of Troy to see what the differences were. I fired up the Greek Coloni...
