Re: Wanting to play 4.0

Super. You make great AAR's with lots of explanations about strategies. :D I like military maps with arrows showing where to attack, where to defend etc.

Re: Great work ! Many thanks !

If you get a message that the save file is an older version then it means that some class files used to store game data have a different version. E. g. if you one of the players hasn't installed the latest GS v4.0 from scratch then an older file might cause this to happen. The easiest solution is fo...

Re: CEAW 4.0 final PC version download

You can remove the GS400_settings.txt file in c:\users\userID\Documents\CEAW Grand Strategy 4.00 folder

Then the game will use the default GS400_settings.txt file in the game installation folder. This allows you to select again all settings.

Re: italian early activation

The French units in North Africa and Corsica will only spawn on the turn Italy is activated. So players no longer have to transports lots of garrisons from France to Africa. There are some rules regarding Italian early activation and that is linked to the Allied naval presence in the Med. Empty the ...

Re: GS 4.00 beta Plaid vs Vokt (Allied AAR)

I guess you understand you're commenting on a 9 month old AAR from an earlier beta version. Guards XP needed has never been 75 as you described. We've tried values between 28 and 35 and ended up with 30. We needed to have the value that low for enough guards to spawn and survive to become a factor l...

Re: AI Improvements possible?

We have pretty much finished work on GS v4.0. Our goal was to make a better PBEM and hotseat game. Improving the AI was never in our scope. I believe quite a few players would like a strategic WW2 game with good AI since many players prefer playing alone. Unfortunately that won't happen with GS v4.0...

Re: Conquest Moscu

You are playing against the AI. GS has not made improvements to the AI behavior. So real players will have no problems beating the AI. If you really want a challenge I propose you try a human opponent. Then you will be punished hard as the Axis if you ignore the west and attack Russia early.

Re: Partizan spam

I don't think you garrison your cities properly. Last time I played the Axis I managed to take all of Caucasus and crossed the Volga and still something like 1-2 partisans in Russia per turn. That was in 1943. The key is to garrison every city and resource hex in Russia. You don't use corps units fo...

Re: CEAW 4.029 update problems

Slitherine will very soon publish the GS 4.0 full installer. Maybe it would be easier for you to use that one?

Based on what you write it's not easy understanding what you have trouble with. Screenshots would certainly help.

Re: Original CeaW

That is probably the simplest and you get a New Serial number. Slitherine will probably Upgrade the Version they sell to GS v4.0 as well.

Re: Possible 4.029 Glitch

I think I've found the reason for this glitched and moved some game code to Ensure it doesn't count partisans that is later set to have strength 0 and thus won't spawn on the map. Some countries aren't supposed to have partisans like Egypt and Vichy France (real French partisans will spawn there ins...

Re: Original CeaW

The original Slitherine Version didn't have a Serial number either. It was introduced With the Gold Version if I recall correctly. I think people were able to install the old CEAW patches back then, but not the Gold edition one or the Matrix Version one. I'm not sure how Slitherine dealt with users ...

Re: Possible 4.029 Glitch

I Guess you're playing against the AI since you must have captured both Cairo and Kuwait to make this happen. That rarely happens against a human player.

For us to check this we need to get either a save game or screenshots of your game.

Egypt is not supposed to spawn any partisans.

Re: Mac New OS - High Sierra Issues

What happens if you rename the untitled file name after it was created by entering the file folder where the save games are stored?

I think the file save creation box uses the same Java function as when asking for password.
