Re: Operation Mercury up for test & review

Don't forget that there is an Easy Mode. If you have the time, test this way as well, to make sure it is not too easy or still too difficult.

Re: is this serious ???

There is an AAR posted at Matrix with a victory. Worth a read.

Re: Installed 1.1.x updater also not working

Just guessing but maybe it is because you are using Parallels? I just updated my 1.1 to 1.2 with the game menu. I get a popup that says it must restart to continue, click it and it opens a window, downloads and installs.

Re: Cannot download update

If you already applied the beta update, the automatic updater will not work. You may have to reinstall the game, then use the update from the game menu. However, sometimes things remain in the Windows registry that will still tag the game as already updated. Either wait for a better answer, or take ...

Re: N00b tips / tricks?

From the wiki Once you start the battle, you can only reposition your troops by moving them, using up their action points. When a unit is selected, all the tiles it can move to are highlighted. Also, most units will have the option to “Move Fast” or “Hunt“. Moving fast gets to the destination quicke...

Re: N00b tips / tricks?

You missed an important word in my post. Miss

Your Shermans can have AP and all the rest but they can't aim well while moving fast and not very well when moving slow. If you get a hit and don't destroy the target, that is a different story.

Re: N00b tips / tricks?

Move is worse than Hunt, Hunt is worse than not moving, the farther you travel with Move or Hunt, the worse the shot gets.

So if you use Move for the maximun distance allowed, the shot on a German A/C is probably going to miss that small target.

Re: Upcoming Computer Games Wish List

There was also a project a few years ago called Steel Tigers that involved members of the SPWAW Depot website and Matrix. That just stopped happening one day and no one knows why or is not talking.

Re: N00b tips / tricks?

There are no official wire or mines but in the modding and scenario forums Merr has come up with lots of extra stuff. Some of it is in my Pacific campaigns. The hedgerows or bocage is a design decision by Slitherine. Tanks cannot see through them or destroy them. However if you move your unit next t...

Re: iPad Scenario Question for Slitherine

Oh ok, I thought you were only asking about the add ons. Yes the base game campaigns should be played in order so that you learn as you go. The Bulge one is harder than the Desert one.

Re: iPad Scenario Question for Slitherine

It doesn't matter what order you play the campaigns in, but it may be better to finish a campaign before moving on to another. Some are played from the Allied side, some from the Axis.

Re: First Rapid Fire Scenario

If you are putting together a string of battles into a campaign, I suggest that you add a description to the main window, and at least a text briefing. I realize that you are just starting out with designing and you may have already planned on it. In my experience with other computer games, sometime...

Re: First Rapid Fire Scenario

Played your battle. Only took a few minutes to play through. It could use a briefing or popup that states that the player is defending. I assumed from the sandbag positions that I should sit and wait for the enemy but it would be better to remove doubt. Wasn't very difficult to win for me.
