Allies vs. Computer, very hard, Game Date May 11, 1944
Sound and Video subdirs renamed (disabled).
Mid March 44 Allied forces (1. 2. 3. 4. Marines) attacked Saipan, and after three or four days took the base.
Since then - it is May 11 now - the Allies EACH DAY shock attack the Japanese forces.
It doesn't matter if I order Deliberate Attack, Bombardement Attack or even Defensive Stance (and I set the "ALL" parameter, of course).
The program always initiates a shock attack during the execution phase.
I do understand this is by design if the base in question is an atoll. But Saipan is not an atoll, is it?
Anybody with a good explanation?
Please note: my question is NOT how to conquer Saipan or how difficult this will be. My question is only why I - the player - cannot control the level of attack.
