Okay, I learned a lot while writing this boot camp. Mostly I learned how to attempt to organize the data to present it to you. So I started a second document sort of a strategy guide which I am working on now.

In the meantime (unless Matrix makes it/them available to you) you can download a PDF version of the PDF document here:

Hopefully this will help you some, sorry for the length of time and the length of the document.

Hmm, server seems a bit busy...




heliodorus04 -> RE: Operational Boot Camp (tutorial) (12/27/2010 4:18:34 PM)

Hmm, I'm caught in a loop of advertisements and pop-ups at the 'download' site and can't get to anywhere that actually lets me download the file. I've adjusted my pop-up settings.

Any help would be appreciated.




Josh -> RE: Operational Boot Camp (tutorial) (12/27/2010 4:37:03 PM)

The d/l button is at the bottom of the page. Click pdf.file, scroll down to "download now with Filefactory basic" (that is until Matrix has the file on its servers), type the two anti-spam words, press "enter", wait 30 seconds..., press download file again.
Servers still busy, and the popups are.... annoying to say the least. [:@]

/Just got it at 300 Kb per sec.

Don Lazov, one word: *outstanding*
Really, thanks from the bottom of my heart. [&o]

Thanks for all the kind words fellows, and sorry about the File Factory thing it was the easiest thing for me to sign up for and a place to put it for you all. Hopefully it will be made available easier elsewhere.

Would you care if I also placed it on a Mediafire download link until something easier is found? Mediafire doesn't have near the bandwidth restrictions that File Factory does.

Thank you very much!

Pford -> RE: Operational Boot Camp (tutorial) (12/28/2010 9:18:57 PM)

Thanks, D. But I still suck at this game. I played Minsk and Leningrad on Normal six times: four draws and two (marginal) victories.




dlazov66 -> RE: Operational Boot Camp (tutorial) (12/28/2010 11:00:46 PM)

Thanks again everyone.

Pford, it takes a lot of time to get really good at this game. I have done turns 1-12 as the Axis probably no less then at least 100 times. I have run about fifty (50) 1943 campaign games ranging from 12 to 60 turns during testing both as Axis and Soviets (was helping test out the AI for both sides) over a three month period. I am still learning new things, and we just put in some new features of the game and I'll be testing those as well, it seems the testing never ends...lol

All I am saying is takes an awful lot of playings and time and for me at least a lot of mistakes to learn this game.

You gentlemen are lucky in the sense that you have a manual, a tutorial, the boot camp guide I created and all the testers on this forum to help you out (I mean this with the utmost sincerity). When I started testing a year ago the manual really was just a 40 page document stating the hot keys and how to do a hasty attack and deliberate attack the rest I had to ask or figure out on my own and as war gamer what helped me learn the game was me trying to figure out what did and did not work and when it did not work beating my head on the screen and trying to figure out why.

When I started the original tutorial back in May and June it was to help me better understand the game mechanics and strategy a bit better and hopefully pass some of that on to you the players. When life intervened in August and September and after we released the game and all you had so many questions we testers had long ago discovered I realized we needed something more and thus sprang this boot camp.

Practice, practice, practice, test, test, test. One thing we testers need to keep in mind is that your first 10 or 20 games (tests) are new to you and while we may have done something for months on end many, many times we may be looking through a glass we are accustomed to. I guess a way for the newbie's to look at some of us testers is that in an 8 or 12 hour period we may have ran through turns 1-4 as the Axis four times and the developers may have released new code once or twice to fix really bad things (like a whole army teleporting to Sweden for no reason, lol). Some testers liked to keep the same file going through numerous code fixes, but I always opted (other then the long 1943 CG tests I ran) to start over each time and test things for the first 8 to 12 turns.

Okay, I am babbling and I need to go run yet another 1941 test for Pav...lol...




Frandoxx -> RE: Operational Boot Camp (tutorial) (12/29/2010 2:34:24 PM)

Well the game and your boot camp are amazing! Thanks so much! [:)]




jjdenver -> RE: Operational Boot Camp (tutorial) (12/29/2010 6:25:53 PM)

dlazov - is there going to be a strategy guide released soon as you mentioned earlier in the thread?

Try reading thru the thread... You might just stumble across the link to the strategy guide PDF...

I've read it 3 times. I see a link to the operational bootcamp - in fact 3 links to it: 1 that doesn't work - too busy, 1 that is rar, and 1 that is zip.

However I don't see a link to the strategy guide. If you see it and I don't can you tell me who posted it so I can search for their name?

Thanks




dlazov66 -> RE: Operational Boot Camp (tutorial) (12/29/2010 8:10:15 PM)

Well I am working on my one sort of strategy guide currently its about 28 or so pages and I stopped work on it while testing some new stuff for a patch then will come out later on.

I'll finish up what I wrote in a few days or so. Then I'll ask the testers forum and see what people think before posting.




jjdenver -> RE: Operational Boot Camp (tutorial) (12/29/2010 8:39:03 PM)

Dlazov - would you be willing to post what you have now? Then revise later? It'd be great to have any consolidated source of advice - even if it's not proofread or even all accurate.
