Re: Crash bug in GS2.1 with Windows 7

Here's another crash on a Windows 7 laptop (though fairly unusual). I dropped a para in England. A Briitsh carrier in port in London intercepted (German fighter fought the carrier). At that point all of the landing zone spaces had circles, but no icon and the para did not drop. I still had a cursor ...

Re: GS 2.1 win/loss records--help up collect the data!

It's not just 'new' players. I've played a couple of dozen PBEM games by now and I still ALWAYS lose as the Axis, unless my opponent is a virtual newbie. It gets a bit boring. :) Yes, I'm certainly not a new player -- many PBEM games on all versions against many opponents since 2008. The original g...

Re: GS 2.1 win/loss records--help up collect the data!

I have to agree with Morris that the Allies have a significant advantage in 2.1. A very experienced player may do as well with the Axis as with the Allies, but any error on the Axis' part is fatal. In 4 2.1 games I have completed so far, 2 as Allies and 2 as Axis, the Allies have won every time, at ...

Crash bug in GS2.1 with Windows 7

I'm experiencing a sporadic crash during the game once every few hours of play. I'm using the final beta files and playing on a Windows 7 laptop. Crashes occur at any time during my turn, generally (maybe always) when nothing is going on, that is, when I am moving the cursor to a new unit but have n...

Re: GS 2.1?

I second the motion that Slitherine charge for these updates. There's no such thing as a free lunch. Businesses have to get a return from their activities or they cease to exist. As a customer I expect to pay for value received, and I'd rather pay $10 or $20 for an upgrade as opposed to waiting mont...

Re: GS 2.10 Realism and Play Balance Discussion

I look forward to seeing how things work in 2.1. Please note that I don't think the Allies should be weaker, just that the Red Army of 1941 (and even more of 1940 or 1939) should not be so fierce. I think the game (as of 2.0) considerably overrates the combat efficiency of the Red Army. An officer c...

Re: GS 2.10 Realism and Play Balance Discussion

This is very interesting thread, but somewhat depressing. I haven't yet played 2.1, but was hoping that the Red Army would be weaker than in 2.0. It sounds like it has been made stronger? The biggest game problem in 2.0, as I see it, is that the Red Army is so strong that invading Russia is suicidal...

Experienced player looking for a new GS2.0 game

Hi,

I'm looking for a new game of CAEW GS2.0 either side, preferably at least 1 turn per day. I've played half a dozen 2.0's to completion and lots of earlier versions. I'm in the U.S. central time zone if that makes a difference to you. Please PM to me with your email address.

Jim

Well, I pulled out my old copy of Jon's book. Everybody's a little bit of everything, so none of this hedging your bets with picking several categories. You should choose just one. I guess I'm the Competitor since I don't see much point in playing a game that isn't balanced, but especially since I f...

There aren't any infantry corps partisans in GS. They're all garrisons.
Well, in the 2 games of GS 2 that I'm playing. ALL of the partisans are corps. Is this a bug?

Can GS 2.0 and GS 1.6 run on the same PC?

Is it possible to have GS 2.0 and GS 1.6 enabled on the same computer at the same time? I am running on a Windows 7 PC and it appears that GS 1.6 will only work in the default folder. (I want to keep GS 1.6 running since I have an ongoing email game on 1.6.)

@oxford_guy: The only reason I was able to resist his early Barbarossa was because the Soviets had unrealistically high tech. It was actually higher than the Germans' for quite some time. There would have to be made some adjustments to the game to make a 1940 Barbarossa a viable option, in my opini...

Got it to work -- thanks! I have v1.12, but the key was to install the GS into the same directory as v1.12. Without your help I would never have figured that out!

Ahh - I think GS is only compatible with the Gold version of CEAW. The issue is that the registry is not up to be able to locate the old CEAW version. I think this is the issue. It's failing to link up with the old version of CEAW. There isn't really a solution for this I can think of unfortunately...

Just to be clear - what exactly is working and what is not working? Does the game run without GS installed? Does it still run with GS installed if you use the old shortcut? If GS cant find java it probably means its not installed to the right place. If I remember correctly the GS expansion requires...

Are you installing to the default installation directory? I know W7 can sometimes do odd things with regard to installing apps for compatibility if you are running W7/64.
