looks great but a lot of messages to sort through in a small menu also the size of the text is a bit small.

I cant buy any replacements despite having the resources, the first turn I could buy replacements but on turn 2 and 3 I can't buy anything. what am I missing?

Talking about saves, there are 6 saves already in my game folder, are they intended to be there?

EDIT: Also, I have no buttons for the ledger in the top left.

Are they named Backup1, Backup2 etc or SpanishCivilWar0, SpanishCivilWar1 etc ?

The game saves by default about 12 previous turns in folders labeled "backup1", "backup2" and so forth, under \SCW\Saves. If you hit the end turn button and then realize that you forgot to do something (or if you don't like the outcome of a battle and want to change your orders hahaha) then you can go to the "load game" screen from the main menu, hover over the save game, and hit "home" (I think it is) to restore the previous turn. You can back up as many as 12 turns this way. Sometimes, more legitimately, this is a way to get out of a corrupted save game if you encounter some crashbug without losing all the time you have put into playing the game so far. It saves automatically when you hit the next turn button.

FotN0-04 are the Fall of the North saves. Did you start this scenario a couple of times?
SpanishCivilWar0 is the grand campaign save.

Something is working wrong with the replacements, bug reported to Pocus i think this is related with the last exe, during Beta was working properly.
It seems i forgot to remove that saved games! :bonk: the last days before sending the GM were very stressing. Just delete them from the folder.

There is a sticky thread open for bug reporting.

I like the game, but I don't think there is enough flavour events to bring life to the titanic idealogical struggle. I think there are only a few tracks, none very spanish sounding. No one yelling charge like in PON, no awesome music like in RUS. And no cool events at all. I don't want to read a log to know the condor legion has arrived. Have a pop up with a picture for such a big event, like all the news paper clippings in PON or RUS. More flavour please. Manual has all these neat propaganda posters, but im at the end of 1936, and no pop up events.

Also some bug at the replacement chits screen, I can only buy 1 regular infantry replacement chit, and I buy it by hovering the mouse on the icon from the right???!!!! Hovering from other directions unbuys it? Why can't I click it to increase my purchase?

There is this fat baldy republican general that is giving me the headaches, but I am going to sic Franco on him with the entire african army. I also cannot form divisions, but formed an army with 2 corps. Huh?

Nationalist should be able to create divisions by the end of 1936. There is an event.
Maybe it could be good idea to make some events pop up as you say.
The historical music tracks that i have founded lack of good quality but it is easy for you to add them.

I supose that general is Miaja, the defender of Madrid. :gardavou:

Sorry it was Jurado, and he had hair sorry. I was not looking carefully. Tell me a bit about Jurado, because he rocked. The game is very smooth, and will be fun to play in PBEM. I think nationalists are too easy, barely much of a challenge though. All the hordes of Africans and Italians and even Condor legion. And after each fight they get more and more elite.

Not to mention super fast tanks.

For republicans afaik they get a ton of milita which have to survive a while before somehow being upgraded or placed in a mixed brigade. Milita run away fast, often sparking a chain route, then my cav or tanks pursue and kill a lot. They are kinda slow so easily encircled. They might do better if there was winter, and I needed to fight in the forest more, but I am staying on the rail lines for supply.

I met the internacionales, and they were nothing special.

Do Nationalists get viriatos or portugese troops?

I haven't played the Republicans yet and thus can't judge but if you play versus the AI you have to remember that it just isn't up to par with a good human player. Especially, in my experience, in judging when to fight with what forces. That may be a main reason why you have the feeling the Republicans are weak.

Misleading Topic Title

Sat Oct 12, 2013 5:12 pm

If this this should be the thread to share impressions for España: 1936, then the topic title is chosen very unhappy! :non:

I have yet to read too less impressions for the game.
No review found until now - No game video found.
Not enough information for me to jump in (immediately).

Hey, surely more than five people already purchased España: 1936 and now have something to say about it.

España: 1936 - How is it? Your impressions please?

I bought the game and played a few turns.

It looks fantastic.

But I am first finishing the book of Antony Beevor, because I want to get to know the forces and historical events.

Also, I hope when I have finished the book in a few days, a few more bugs are solved.
But of course if everybody is waiting for a path, there will not be enough input for that patch :bonk:

I hope more action is going on in the Spanish section of the forum, and that it will soon flow over towards the English side.

Great book, I still have 120 pages to read.

Leibstandarte is working hard on the bug fixing and a new patch will arrive soon, with many fixes and improvements!

In fact, for me the impressions of the player are an important purchase decision.

Very few impressions to SCW can be found at the moment.
I have also started a thread on the matrix forum and on a German strategy games forum.
Also there the involvement is unfortunately very weak.

I 'm interested in the game.
And because I found no impressions, and because I was bored, I started reading this forum thread for thread (there aren’t many).

So almost by accident I discovered that this thread is meant as a thread to share impression.
How is one to know?
The title is: For the SCW owners.
I'm not a SCW owner - so this thread is not important to me?

I will read the AAR today.
Thank you for your effort.

It makes me sad to read this.
Such is perhaps for a strategy game not so important (in one of the best strategy games ever – chess – you won’t find such nice ‘gimmicks’).
But that is a big part of what I like so much to play AGEOD games.
I do not want to be without!
I would like to see this is reworked extensively.

I like the game a lot.
It has the benefit of processing turns a lot quicker than any other AGEOD game I've played.
The AI might need to be improved a little, as I won as Republicans by early 1937.


Lots of things implemented in España 1936 could very well be implemented in what remains my favourite AGEOD game, RUS.

Okey, honestly as an Espana beta tester I am probably too biased to give you my impression of the game ... so I made this thread for new owners of the game to share their impressions. This does not mean that you are not allowed to read it my friend :mdr:
My advice to you is either:
- risk a few bucks and buy the game and have confidence in the author (yes this is more or less just ONE man project!!!), who made a whole new game based on RUS/AJe engine, that he will improve, polish and add new features to an already great game.
- play a waiting game and wait for all above to happen before opening your wallet :leprechau

I'd say that most folks who have picked this up are too busy playing it to be bothered with posting about it. I know that's true for me. I picked this and RUS up at the same time last weekend and have been playing both exclusively since. There is a bug in the game at the moment which prevents the player from creating more than one army but otherwise, it's great. I like the smaller scale of this. I feel this is probably the best game for a total AGEOD newbie to pick up and learn the game.

This is a good game and there's potential to become an even better one. I'm now waiting for some patches while reading more about the conflict. The game can be too easy as the Nationalists, but this can be changed by improving the AI and making things otherwise more challenging so that the war won't be over too soon, because it wasn't easy for them in real life either.

I also like the smaller scale of things. Not every game has to be absolutely huge with millions of units and hours of micromanagement to be fun.
