Re: Question about command structure

I normally play the CP and I'd suggest that the only thing you need do to neutralise the German fleet is to rotate a load of your big bangers in or around the German Bight. If the unit stats do give any advantage to the German BB and BC for superior protection it's not sufficient to show up in Jutla...

Re: Question about command structure

Worthwhile noting, too, that once activated by the GHQ the dog is off the leash and distance doesn't appear to be a continuing issue.

Re: Who's in charge here?!!!

Aha! Thanks for that Barg - well worth a try. If it works I'll commission a plaque honouring your contribution to maintaining (my) mental health.

Goes to show once again just how layered and intricate this game is.

Who's in charge here?!!!

If one were gifted with supreme authority over everything in one's nation (or alliance) that moved by foot, hoof, wheel (including the paddle variety), track (continuous or rail), and air or nautical screw, one might consider that he or she was well situated to plan military operations against an en...

Re: Possible bug? Related to war supplies.

I've encountered the same issue from time to time H and I'm afraid I have no explanation to offer. It would take a bevy of replacements to burn through 665 supplies, but in any case if this shows up immediately after processing any replacements you have "in stock" would already have been p...

Re: Step into Your Place.

I'm thinking Arrow is having a little fun with my handle. The historical (instead of this hysterical) Epaminondas led a Theban invasion of Messene then under Spartan rule. At that time Sparta was more broadly known as Laconia. When "liberated" somewhat later Messene became an effective cli...

Yep - just made a mug of myself. Neither Bulgaria nor Rumania provided additional manpower when joining the CP. Turkey kicked in 130 new bodies.

Re: Step into Your Place.

I can confirm that there is a small manpower gift associated with minors joining the CP but it's never been significant enough for me to take notice of its quantum. I'll hunt back through some old saves and try to find the details. Nope - hold that. I might be confusing Turkey with the minors. I'll ...

Re: Points to Know - Central Powers

It's a fabulous resource, Arrow. You almost literally have "written the book" on how to master this game. Heaps in here that I've skimmed across in the manual without ever appreciating its gameplay value - and heaps more outside the manual that had never occurred to me. There has to be a m...

Re: Surprise Ending to PBEM Game

It's difficult to comment authoritatively on the results you detail Colonel - the only PBEM I've played ended disastrously when my end of the exchange became corrupted. From that limited experience though, I'd already learned that playing against a partner pretty much invalidated almost everything I...

Re: QuickFix (Version 1.04, Beta 1.03 May 12, 2019)

In the words of Mr Punch, "That's the way to do it!".

You should end up with the tag EAW 1.04 (Beta Patch 1.03 - May 2019). The labelling confused the hell out of me also but it was worth persevering because it delivered up a playable, if far from perfect, game.

Join the club. If it's the actual EAW 1.04 Beta (March 30th Update) you're after you'll find that in the eighth post from the top in the "Help improve EAW" forum. But if it's the Quickfix that you're looking for (as in your post header) you'll find that first up in the Tech Support forum.
