Yes sir...I did read. For some reason, I thought some of the entrenchment technology was event driven based on the level of research spending :bonk: . Is the doctrine, i.e., firepower in my current game, also dependent on technology research? In prior games I thought it was event/die roll driven but...

Calvinus,

I am now into March/April 1916 as the CP. I still have zero entrenchments and am in the firepower doctrine. Am I missing something or is this WAD?

I'm also playing the CP and have zero entrenchment as of October 1915. I always max out the tech slider for all my allies. I have seen the appropriate messages for the Entente re: entrenchment but none for me. Think the Entente is up to level two now.

I believe retreat before combat is only available for turn based mode. As I am not playing turn based, it is not enabled in the main menu.

Well, I introduced in 1.08H a couple of key improvements in trench warfare battle. Now the battles are much more balanced, non so favoring the defender side as before. ;) Excellent..another question.

The English navy are defeated by the Germans? Actually ,the Germans are blockaded by the English navy. The English navy is powerful in WW1. Well, I'm not much of a naval tactician but the German navy has won about half of the larger naval battles through mid 1917. Both sides have lost beaucoup ship...

Good news! The latest AI improvements in 1.08G are giving nice results!

But also against Belfort, even though with a bit less forces. And last but not le...

Have seen this AI activity often. I'm attaching a couple of prior saves that I think includes some of this behavior.

Yeah..the guy took a lot of incoming when the game first came out. I never really thought the game would come back. But Calvinus, and others, have shown restraint, patience, and great customer support resulting IMHO in a gold version w/ excellent gameplay :thumbsup: .

Calvinus,

Attached is the requested .MAP file. I thought that maybe 1.08C and the long AI thinking time might be the issue...but Win 7 task manager is showing the program as not responding :confused: .

A little word of warning: At least in my 2 PCs, the patch does not point to the actual directory where I have installed WW1 (as is usual with Ageod patches), but rather to a default directory in C:\. So beware during the patch installation to choose manually the actual directory where you installed...
