Re: Question Regarding Scenhack Program

The whole point of a turn based PBEM game is that you do your turn when it suits you, post it to your opponent who deals with it when he can. Thus a guy in Finland say, can...

Re: Taking cover.....

3 tries would give you 3 goes at breaking LOS, but if the chance was only 5% - maybe not much use. For example - if there is an elite unsuppressed infantry unit looking at your team from 50 metres......

Re: Generate Campaign slightly strange

You set up a campaign with opponents that weren't historically active for date. therefore anything can happen.
