Thanks for continuing to work on this.

There are many of us who really like this aspect of EIA.

(and third party ship combat would be a beautiful thing as well.)

I think I have created a way to do this (Not coded yet BUT designed on paper) which would be to export all available units for reinforcing to the battle file then allowing the results file to indicate which units reinforced THEN upon loading would auto move the reinforcing units to the battle area. The reinforcement rolls would be done outside the game but that's the plan anyway. Thoughts?



This is great.

So, what is the unit format? Does each unit in the game get a distinct number?

Is the French I Corps the number 0?

The French Guards Corps is designated 282 ?

I would be interested in being able to modify unit strengths of units not involved in the battle (like reinforcements.) In order to do this, I guess I would need to know a unit's numeric designation.


Is there a list anywhere of the units and their corresponding number designations?





#Unit info format:
#~uUnitname with Tactical and Strategic numeric values
#~eNumber of guard factors
#~iNumber of infantry factors
#~mNumber of militia factors
#~cNumber of cavalry factors
#~aNumber of artillery factors
#~hNumber of heavy ships
#~lNumber of light ships
#~tNumber of transports
#Change these numbers to reflect new force levels
# Attacker Forces (France) Morale 4.05
~u0I corps T:2 S:2 M4.00
~e0
~i25
~m0
~c3
~a0
~h0
~l0
~t0

I believe the unique unit number is exported with the units in the battle file?

There seems to be a design flaw in not allowing players to fight defensive battles as 3rd party.

Am I missing something? Or is this something you can fix.

The feature works fine if I attack the AI, but not if it attacks me.

Thanks,

George

Third party was meant to have at least two human players. you can also use the admin feature to get the data you need though.

We have a 3rd Party going invoving 4 players at the moment.

Oh, Good, is there any special resource you can direct me to for the admin feature, or is the manual sufficient?

BTW, I do think you should fix that for solo play, youll sell more copies.

Thanks!

George
