Default Re: issues in scn 35 HG In Russia

If you check it now you will see why the Iraqi ww2 era flag was added in the last update so it no longer needs to be a Brit vs Brit scenario so now its Brit vs "Blue"

If something has been modified by the scenario designer - the encyclopaedia screen reference does not change to match, so only the basic information is worth looking at. He could (say) turn a mortar into an AT gun, new icon etc, and the end user going for the "full info" will get the data for the unit in the encyclopaedia that was the basis before fiddling about.

basic info - comes from the unit data as in the scenario
full info - the info read from disk for the unit number in the encyclopaedia data in the OOB.

2/ Is most likely the reason Andy gave for the difference. The name "4.7" is not used in any Japanese OOB I have but I only have back to 2004 and they are named 120mm which is what 4.7 is so either the name was 4.7 when the scenario was built twenty years ago or the unit was modified to not have armour and the name was changed at the same time so that one I will leave as is. The "tell" for that is shown in Scenhack which shows a YES under Changed? which indicates that unit had been changed along with a few pillboxes so that means it WAS the scenario designer who changed it

EDIT: Next time you see something like that, open up the scenario with scenhack and check its "changed?" status. If it reports YES it's a scenario designer change so intended and it does not need to be reported unless it's doing something highly unusual.



...and if you play this series in sequence there are quite a number that will not agree with the current encyclopedia because they show YES for changes made by the designer.

1/ however is a mystery. The sound number assigned now is an HMG sound and that unit has been a twin 13mm MG for as far back as I can check but you are correct, it produces a high-velocity cannon sound but that I can correct by "changing" them to the same unit using Scenhack ( which I have now done ) and they now play the correct sound FX but in the process of that fix I discovered we had two Japanese twin 13mm AAMG's..... the problem is that one of them is only a single and the photo for it is a single so I removed "twin" from the unit name.

Also, there are 13mm AAMGs in the next one but they give the correct sound in the test I ran

Yep, I could change it so a "this unit has ben modified by a scenario desiger" message instead of bringing up the (potentially waay out of spec) full-info encyslopaedia screen, but there is just the one "changed" flag for the unit and that gets set if anything was edited - which is usually something simple like editing the unit name and not a major remodelling/hack.

So it remains as-is, with the usual occasional "I founda bug!!!" report on these forums when a major rework of a unit leads to a completely out-of-whack encyclopaedia screen being displayed.

Default Issues in Scenario #70 SSpz 502 attacks Kustrin

1. King Tiger formations I, J, and K are all titled MKVI SSPZ 502 but only formation I uses the SS flag.

2. The Ju-88p-1s use a rocket firing sound when they fire their 7.5cm cannon.

ID tag issue fixed and I found out today that the 7.5cm version was soon replaced by the dual 3.7cm version and few if any of all types of the JU 88 P series survived past the end of 1944.
