Re: Hexs are 50 meters each?

You can choose 50 meters or yards for range, although meters are 10% longer than yards.

Re: BIG Problems

Had similar problems, but to be fair Windows Defender is now so good that methinks hassles with updates are worth it. Saves coughing up buckaroonies for extra anti-virus protection.

Re: HQ unit for AI run side

From personal experience the AI usually keeps its AO to the rear. Oftentimes bump into it late in an attack scenario going after rear-area objectives but otherwise rarely see it.

Re: Making Counterbattery Fire Happen.

Indeed. As luck would have it shortly after posting and resuming play that aforementioned 155mm Gun Bty scored something like 15 hits on its 10.5cm counterpart, causing 39 points of damage and...

Re: Making Counterbattery Fire Happen.

In a current US campaign my off-map 155mm Gun Bty with range of 213 and experience 90-plus would sit almost always idle while its maneuver buddies were getting creamed by salvos from (mostly) 10.5cm...

Re: Interesting read

Dion, while I may agree with some of your sentiments this is not the place to discuss them. Kindly refrain from current political topics and stick to wargaming. Cheers and have a nice day.

Re: Getting a beach assault in a long campaign

Odd sentiments IMHO; for me they're really nerve-wracking. Nearly lost my AO to an AT hitting its barge from a hillside in a recently started US LC with a landing in Tunisia (November '42). As it was...

Re: Interesting read

Here's another take from an Indian perspective. Dunno how accurate it is but the narrator makes it sound as if Azeri drones won the war almost single-handedly. Food for thought though:

Re: Campaign Included?

The Deployment Screen is different from the regular Game Screen. There's a fairly comprehensive section about it in the manual, along with Long and Generated Campaigns. Granted there's a steep...

Re: winter movement

Yes. So what is the justification for such restrictions on mobility during winter? One might think a clear or lightly snowed hex wouldn't affect tracked or foot movement at all, only moderate snow to...

Re: winSPWW2 version 9.0 - 13.0 Consolidation patch 2020

Pardon my ignorance but I've just (!?) noticed that saved games still have only two files. Is there any discrepancy between that and the scenario files? Thanks.

Re: Weapons accuracy

Right. From personal experience battle results even out over time. Sometimes it seems your stationary guys can't hit anything, then one tank moves full MP, takes a single shot at 600 meters and...

Re: Aircraft hit but no damage given

Bizarre. It's not unusual for aircraft to be hit but not damaged, but NOT to be damaged and then crash hasn't happened in my experience. It's as if the AI has decided to factor in pilot error...

Re: Bought the game

Welcome to the club. Last year it took me hours to install the patch 'cuz unlike Windows XP pasting the patch over the WW2 folder didn't work with Windows 10. After numerous attempts to direct it by...

Re: winSPWW2 version 9.0 - 13.0 Consolidation patch 2020

120mm mortars have bigger warhead size than say 80mm - it is W/H size that contributes to punching through the cover. Same with how 155mm arty does a better job on dug-in troops than 105mm.[/QUOTE]

Re: winSPWW2 version 9.0 - 13.0 Consolidation patch 2020

Yet another tour de force by Camo Workshop. Kudos to Don and Andy for their indefatigable work in making SPWW2 the great wargame it is. Especially like the new scenarios, including some from WW I and...

Re: WinSPMBT version 10.0 - 14.0 Consolidation patch ( 2020 )

Please add my seconding to the above. It is indeed a pleasure and privilege to be playing perhaps the most accomplished combined-arms wargames (WW2 plus MBT) in these trying times. Live long and...

Re: A minor problem

OK. Must be a unique system or user issue. Thanks for looking into it. For me it was happening while in the regular battle screen. Not so apparent now for some reason. Senioritis perhaps?

Yes have had the same problem. You bring a vehicle into a hex with a transportable unit, hit the Load button or key, then have to click at least twice to load the transportable unit. Doesn't seem to...
