Erik, am I missing something? When I download the New Britain campaign, the zip file does not contain a folder of Scenarios?

Your right!
The campaigns obviously work if you've got the individual scenario folders in your My games etc folder.
I think this was the way campaigns were handled in the old days, different structure.
I have added the scenarios folders to the zip, the link should be updated in a few minutes.
Thanks for reporting.

Got it, thanks! So, would you please feel free to continue producing high quality single-player scenarios and campaigns for my entertainment merely in exchange for my admiration and gratitude? How's that for a deal? :wink:

I'll do my best.
I have fun doing these scenarios and there are plenty of battles left to do.

Unfortunately, it appears that you need to apply the same fix to your Philippines Campaign. It must be a bit vexing trying to keep up with changes that the devs make to the game in each patch.

Yes, playing catch-up with non-announced changes is a bit tiresome...
I'll have to check the rest of my custom campaigns.

Edit: fixed them

Kokoda Trail 1942

Post by Erik2 » Wed Nov 23, 2016 10:59 am

This is an Australian campaign covering the Japanese attempt to reach Port Moresby overland.
I've had this campaign laying around for quite some time. There are probably bugs...

Erik, I am sorry to report that the Philippines campaign is not fixed. No units appear in the opening scenario. New Britain is fine, however. (2.9.6g)

Philippines

You should have 950 Resources, 42 Land Command Points and 15 Air Command Points to buy units for in the deployment phase....?
There are also a number of auxilliary supply ships and destroyers available for deployment.

Yes, I apologize. I misunderstood the beginning, expecting units to be already in place. Obviously, I have never played this campaign before. I am looking forward to doing so now!

No problem bru888.

This campaign is a OOB-version of a really old Campaign Series original with platoon unit sizes, individual planes and 250m hexes. So it is stretching the OOB game system a bit, artillery ranges are of course way off.
I was doing this mainly to get some experience in stitching a campaign together.

Unfortunately it's not working. I tried to play this campaign but can't even win in the first mission - most triggers (Primary and Secondary winning conditions) are not working.

I was afraid that this old campaign needed some work after the last game patches.
I'll fix it, but right now I'm busy finishing the Blitzkrieg '39 and 40' campaigns.

Changed unit options to purchase instead of mostly pre-deployed.
Lowered German income in most of the scenarios.

Hi Eric, been playing through your Blitzkrieg `39 campaign (Poland) Have tried Lodz 3 times now, taken all cities and surrounding hexes to a distance of 2 extra hexes and yet some cities do not show as captured on the victory objectives at turn start, even though the ownership flag shows as German or SS. In my latest game I was concerned that the trigger was not working if I allowed cities previously taken to revert to enemy control via capture, so I was extra careful to allow that not to happen. I have wiped all enemy from the map (and yeah I`ve checked heavy forest with infantry) and Lodz won`t revert to my control. Any tips? Really enjoying it and don`t want to give up the campaign...

I've done a number of smaller changes to almost all the scenarios in preparation of a 39-40 campaign. I'll check if Lodz is OK.

Blitzkrieg updated to 1939-40

Post by Erik2 » Sun Dec 18, 2016 7:33 pm

I have added Operation Weserübung and Fall Gelb to Fall Weiss.
I intend to continue this with a new batch of scenarios (Operation Seelöwe), but it will take a while before the next release.

Known issues:
I can't get the branching to work where a player may select between two scenarios. So a few of the current ones in the list will unfortunatley be skipped for now.
I will only update this 'master' campaign. I think one grand campaign works better than importing units (but not leaders and specializations) between shorter campaigns.
If someone finds issues with an individual scenario, I will (hopefully) fix this and post a link to the scenario in a response to the poster. The campaign package will of course also be updated.
