Added:

What does Capture and Control or Capture and Hold Victory Points mean?

If it is shown X:Y then it compares what you have with your enemy. The higher wins.

If it is X/Y it is what you have out of what you need.

Many hotkeys don't work in Mac version

Post by veritas » Fri Oct 14, 2011 12:36 am

Great game! Many of the hotkeys listed don't seem to work in the Mac version (F1, F2, F3, <Shift> for barrage area, etc.) Are you able to post a separate list of Mac hotkeys?

I would be glad too. I just need to know what they are. I was hoping that Slitherine would buy me a Mac for testing but...

They definitely should get you a Mac for testing! It's a growing market. I'm sure all of the other BA players on Macs out there would love to see a complete hotkey list just like me.

Is the manual posted online?

Post by pk867 » Thu Jan 05, 2012 3:55 pm

Is there a link to download the updated manual?

I believe this should be made available to the beta testers to check for accuracy. The more eyes the better.

We haven't updated the manual since the first version. We definitely should, but the layout time etc dwarfs the time to actually write the content.

I'll try and bring it nearer the top of the voluminous task list...

Cheers

Some SQUADS.CSV column meanings are listed in the AUTODOCS; is there a comprehensive list, esp for AT, HE performance & armour defensive values.
Sorry if this is a bit of a duplicate posting . More of a modding thing than for a manual...:oops:

I would like to see a list of ranges (in squares) for all weapons. For example, I don't know where to drop my mortar so that it'll reach that pesky AT gun but stay out of range of those infantry.

Grat topic ! But theese commands didn't worked for me ... are theese keys valid for all campaigns ? or perhaps valid only in the editor?
