Default No Amphib Grps For Us

I have played two games as US (after infamy scenario) and no amphib groups avail in reinforcement (one game went well into 1944 w/o US ability to perform invasions).

Yep, I had the same problem in one game. I had the initial 2 or 3, but then no more after that. I suspect a bug, but I have no idea how to repro it.

After one game, I didn't experience this problem. Things were lean in most of '43, and I was worried because the reinforcement report only showed ONE for '43 and no more! But then they started showing up like crazy. Over the course of the next year, I had enough invasion fleets rolling out to take Singapore, Borneo, Leyte, Luzon, Formosa, Okinawa, Iwo Jima, Marianas, Truk, Wake, Tarawa, & Espiritu Santo....garnering a B-29 win in November '44.

Just a quick reminder that after the initial amphibs, new units are only scheduled when the existing ones are used, so you will only see at most the next two or three in the reinforcement list.

Once you use a tranport unit in an invasion (or lose it to sinking...) a new one will be scheduled to arrive in a a few months.

I noticed this problem in the two After Infamy scenarios (not in the standard game) as the US player. I got to JUL 44 and still no US AMPHIB Grp. I had a tremendous surface force but unable to invade any Japanese base.....

Msundborg,

I'll investigate. Thanks for the report.

I've noticed that the US seems to get far fewer amphib groups than I would have thought they should. It takes a while to start getting them and then even longer before they start appearing regularly. By the time I've actually got enough to mount invasions, the chance of survival victory kicks in. The Japanese player also retains the ability to get groups until the end. I find the bombing victory pretty tricky to get simply because it's hard to pull together the necessary groups + repair the bases + defend them all in time. I found playing Japan easier.

Also, does Iwo Jima need something special to land invasions on? I've noticed invasions tend to break there often, with ships just showing up there, having no enemies at all, aircraft or navy, and then pressing surface, the board disappearing, and my amphib group gone with no invasion having happened.

The game is great fun though.

Has this bug ever been resolved? I'm played two "After the Infamy" scenarios as the US and not once did I receive any amphib groups.

The problem you're seeing with Iwo Jima may be one that is fixed with the 1.0.1 patch. There was a problem if neither side had any aircraft.

The patch will boost your transports a bit as well. Try it out and see if things are more in line with what you're expecting.

Thanks,

I'm running 1.01.

Do I need to take any action to trigger Amphib groups? It's strange that in my two games I had 0 Amphibs availble to US.

btw, terrific game, easy to get into but fun.
