Re: Ammo resupply

Re: Game Exit issue

Thanks gents, I am beginning to become pretty sure that this issue is caused by my firewall not allowing explorer to be restarted by the game or by borderless gaming. No big deal - I just need to...

Hi Ladies and Gents,
Not a big issue but when I exit SPWW2, Windows explorer doesn't restart and I must press ctrl/alt/del and restart it manually.
This has been an issue for me since upgrading to...

Re: AI counterattack when defending

I also thank you - It is amazing how you have managed to develop this wonderful game and keep it so fresh after all these years. A little unpredictability goes a long way and from time to time I am...

Re: Anzac oob

Hi there,
my first thought is that ANZAC units in North Africa (especially Australian military units) generally had very little in the way of their own armour and artillery, instead relying on the...

Re: An Observation

I think that I would be inclined to leave it as it is. The flames and smoke dissipate after a while in any case.

Re: Questions

I particularly like delaying actions, because, like an advance, they are mobile actions. Because the AI is committed to attacking the victory hexes it is possible to set up all sorts of ambushes and...

Re: game Preferences settings

Hi All,

Breakdowns on. Hex grid off, all else standard except:

Re: Russian M32 Rockets bug?

Hi Don,
No again!
I have never assigned anything to computer control (just my temperament I think!)
Something like a flame rocket is an area weapon with a relatively short range, and I like to...

Re: Russian M32 Rockets bug?

Thanks Don,

Unfortunately I broke my own rule and overwrote the save slot for that game....

But I can confirm that the AI German formations did not have any flame rockets of their own (or any...

Re: Russian M32 Rockets bug?

Well, I have tested the rockets and cannot duplicate the results I got "in battle". The rockets were under human control, but erratic as I mentioned earlier.
I will keep on with the testing until I...

Russian M32 Rockets bug?

When using unit 581 Russian M32 Flame Rockets I have noticed an oddity. Even when unassigned to bombard they will sometimes fire randomly, and the rockets can land anywhere, even on my own troops or...

Re: How to Turn Off Arty?

Queen of the battlefield! Why turn it off?

Re: Z Fire

"Z" fire seems to be only HE. This makes sense as just blazing away with AP into a 50 metre area and expecting a useful result is really beyond it. I find Z fire to be most useful when one of my...
