Re: Repressive fire questions

Re "with repressive fire there is no possibility to kill a unit other than rout that unit?" I think this is correct. Re "How do you know in defensive situations if a unit is spotted or not?

Re: Units in skirmish random list mode

This is a known issue I believe and one that hopefully gets fixed soon. Also what is the deal with the customize forces ability. It seems as though its stuck on a certain value and when I try to adjust it points just disappear. Even if I try to put those points back to the side it was taken away fro...

Re: Units in skirmish random list mode

I'm currently playing in a round robin with three others. Thankfully in each round we are playing one game as Soviet and one as German. We selected March 1943 (very large forces/map) as the date for our Skirmish games (symmetric/random army list). Using this date certainly seems to put the Soviet at...

Re: Pandora starts up in a black screen and hangs my Mac

If you are running version 1.53 or earlier I'd suggest installing the 1.54 update. That may fix your problem.

Re: Skins - EAP --> Full

The special skins were not part of the EAP install. When the EAP ended everyone received an email with a link to a special download of the final 1.0 release version that included the vehicle skins.

Re: Need better ways to end game!

I would also like to see a DRAW button for players in head to head games. If both players declare DRAW then the games ends. In addition, when a set number of turns of overtime has elapsed, the game ends in a draw. Dawn of the second day would be a good time for this I think.

Re: Going from Early Release to the final version

You can't use the update on the EAP version. You should have received an email about downloading the final release version with your special vehicle skins. If you did not get this email (check your spam folder) then you need to contact Slitherine at support[at]slitherine.co.uk. Hi I was part of the ...

Re: AT guns too fragile?

I agree they seem quite fragile. One hit by an artillery unit and they are dead. They can take a small amount of incoming fire from most other units but with artillery almost always dead with that first strike. You basically get one chance to use an AT Gun, then its over.

It is my understanding that you can. The PBEM++ game server is device agnostic I believe.

Editor Question re Maps

Is there any way to export/recover a skirmish map from an LST save game file to use as a basis for creating your own campaign? If possible sure would beat having to start a map from scratch.

How about a BA1 Gold Edition that includes smoke, partial damage and a skirmish mode (and other BA2 enhancements)?

Re: Game resolution setting help please.

I'd recommend trying 1920x1080. Yes, that is true. And yet, even after shutdown, the game seems to select its own resolution setting aside from my selection. The game's selection looks OK, but, the odd thing is I don't seem to be able to make my own resolution selection and make it stick. You see, I...
