Ok, but I'm still a little confused. Japan starts with 2 factories in Kanazawa producing Adv Mit and Adv Nak engines. There seems to be NO way to switch to either Toyoda or Nissan.
The Adv Mit and Adv Nak engines occupy the Toyoda or Nissan engine slots so the latter are effectively removed from the game. No loss as there are no CHS aircraft that use them.
Am I correct in assuming that Jacks and Georges use Adv Mit and Adv Nak then? And that the Toyoda or Nissan engines effectively do not exist in CHS regardless of what the 'i' screen says?
If you are confident, you can follow my link above and remove all references to the Toyoda or Nissan engines. The reason for this is the engine names are embedded in the game executable file. CHS only updates the scenario data files and cannot alter everything the program displays (menus etc).
Also, it's now Feb 1942 in one of my games and I still have no adv Mit or Nak engines in the pool even though the respective factories are 0x100 and 0x80. When do they start coming online?
You will need to talk to Andrew Brown or Lemurs about this.
Ideally the advanced engines should only be available after a certain date but I am not sure if the game engine supports this. I think the best they could do was to split the engine pool into basic and advanced engines that aren't interchangeable. I believe it's up to the player to convert the factories taking into account that the advanced engines can only be used on aircraft that don't become available until the later half of the game.
Sorry I cannot help more.
