Oh, but I do edit all new links into the first post! I just thought that some people might want to know what links I added without being forced to sift through the whole list again.

500 posts with new entries? Are you sure this forum produced that many "Must read" threads?!

Widell,
I just might do that someday. I've already earmarked some shorter threads for removal, after their content has been pasted into the Wiki. I've also got some ideas regarding this list and the Wiki, I'll PM you and WhoCares sooner or later.

I am/was actually no more responsible for the Wiki than anybody else on the forum - I just tried to promote it from time to time and made some entries in it as I like the idea of manual Wikis so much, but otherwise it is all Widells child. Oh, and I came up with the logo

Regarding making a picture a link, you can just embed the image tag into the link tag:
[link=http://witp.kodapa.com/index.php?title=Main_Page][img]http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/7240/iwantyouwitpsmall8ey.jpg[/img][/link]

will become

Hey, I´m just hosting it, and promoting it now and then. Who knows, maybe some day it´ll see more activity. Good thing is I can keep it at the server it´s at for now since the provider upgraded the web space to some 2 GB's. PM me, or send an e-mail to witp at kodapa dot com and we´ll go from there...

BTW, the logo is probably the coolest thing on the wiki. I think it´s great to be honest

I think it would help if you added any additional links to your intial post and at the end of the link add the date you added it to the intial list (possibly in bold or color).
You should add a list of possible mods like CHS, RHS, Nik, etc. And some that go to things like Bodhi Utility that some players fine useful.

I have a Word document that I have cut and paste in that has many older post that I thought were useful. However, I haven't updated in months, so I like your idea.

WhoCares,
thanks, it worked!

Widell,
I'm working on it, but don't hold your breath. I'm pretty busy at the moment.

ny59giants,
Mods: Will do.
Links to files: I dunno, it would be a duplicate of Spooky's List of Files/Scenarios. But if there's demand for a shorter list...
Edit: Can you PM me your text file?

You might want to add some AARs as well:

Certainly PzB. And his 4 opponents.

Others that must be included (IMO): Tom Hunter's Lunacy in the Pacific. Dude vs. Zeta. Amiral Laurent's Bloody Pacific. Sneer vs. Raver.

I'd also like to see my personal favorites: pauk vs. Andy Mac (both sides). Speedy vs. Fabertong (again both sides).

I'm sure I'm neglecting some worthwhile additions, but that would be because I simply haven't read them.

I'm sure I'm neglecting some worthwhile additions, but that would be because I simply haven't read them.

I thought about creating a second thread in the AAR forum, to which the people writing AARs could add some info about their games. Something like this:

AAR 1: player1 vs. player2
Map/Mod/scen used
game started on YYMMDD
shared AAR/AAR off limit for the opponent
Daily/weekly/monthly updates
screenshots yes/no
current game date
maybe short summary of major actions so far (India invaded, Chungking besieged, KB defeated...)
Link to Allied AAR
Link to Japanese AAR

I wouldn't write these summaries myself, however (too much work), but would ask the AAR writers to PM me their stuff and I'll add it to the first post (like in this thread). So it all depends on other peoples contributions... Old (inactive) AARs could be added in an archive section.

So what shall it be?! Some simple links in this thread, or a separate thread in the AAR forum?

I'm not too eager to have this stickied - the sticky list is so cluttered with old stuff that this thread will probably draw more attention if it is regularily bumped in the main forum. I still have links to add, so I will continue bumping it myself with new additions.

BTW, if you really want to do me a favor: if someone asks a question in the forum, and you want to provide him with a link from this list, don't post the link itself. Instead, point him to this list and the relevant section. That way, the questioner might 'accidentially' stumble over even more useful links.

AARs must have reached 1943 before they can be added to this list. No self-applications, you arrogant twits , all other suggestions are welcome. The sequence of all AARs in this list is random, no rating intended (to please the PC crowd)...


...except PzB's AAR, which should be clearly on top!

I just noticed that the Hoepner/Hawker game didn't make it into 1943. As much as it hurts (one of the best AAR IMO), I have to be consistent with the rules regarding AARs or else people might feel left out, so I removed them. 

For the record, here are the links that won't make it into the list:

The links are broken, but they can be repaired by deleting some characters before the Thread ID. I'm working on it. This is an old thread (2004), but some stuff might be still useful.

SunDevil, should you ever read this: THANK YOU!

Thanks Rob! 


SunDevil's links took me far into the past of this forum (Summer 2004) - many unknown faces, and a lot of today's battle-hardened veterans were still rookies at that time.

I've found many old topics about game mechanics that are already covered by newer threads in my list, while a lot of strategy threads contained advice that is (IMO) outdated - the "Full Sir Robin" and the "Empty India from all troops and move them to Burma/DEI" strategies were dominant at that time. Only few people disagreed with these strategies, among them Mr. Frag and Mogami!

SunDevil's list quickly melted down to the following topics, which have been added to the first post:

"HQ questions": Mr. Frag explains the effect of Command HQs
http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=657184

"Observations on HQ & Replacements effects": Tests by fbastos.
http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=687039

"Leaders Descriptions": Mike Wood explains leader values and leader characteristics.
http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=682773

"Tips for the Royal Navy": About RN ship classes and ship withdrawals.
http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=659737

"Preventing the fall of Rangoon"
http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=667163

"Counter-acting Japanese Player Lingering at PH Strategy". Alternative titel: What to do with US CVs in Dec. 41.
http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=672365

"Allied Advance from Northern Australia"
http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=676700

"Early War Dutch Primer"

Hi all,

Shameless BUMP for this most excellent thread!


Joking aside here is another interesting thread that might be useful (I started it but completely forgot about it)...

Link below:

Does "Aggression" play any role for "Air" commanders?
