cool.

I should probably do a revision scrub as well now that i have some more time.




EDIT: I'll try to keep any to a minimum so as not to mess up the scripts and will send you a change log.

The biggest issue I am finding is on the Japanese side as usual and its the usual I set up the AI to duplicate a number of eng bns on key bases because players were sinking so many of them in transit and some of the bases were critical for air transits.

What it means is some of them are in the wrong location which is a pain in the neck because for the 1st month the AI is tying up all its shipping redeploying LCU's from SOPAC to Burma and vice versa

Finding the worst of those is my biggest challenge

Greetings,

I downloaded the scenario, and started looking at Japanese ships. As I checked capital ship locations, BB Haruna and CS Chitose were not to be found anywhere. I checked the database and, sure enough, there they are, but when I load the scenario, I can't find them. I wonder if it is my installation or if it is some type of bug in the scenario files?

Cheers!

This is what I have found so far:

- CS Chitose & CS Mizuho are assigned to TASK FORCE / 722-Singapore. Changing it to BASE fixes the problem.
- BB Haruna & CA Takao are assigned to BASE / 217-<inexistent>. Changing it to BASE / 228-Hiroshima/Kure fixes the problem.
- DD Ikazuchi (219) is assigned to TASK FORCE / 8000 - TFMIN, but the TF does not appear in the TF listing, and the ship does not appear in the ship listing.
- DD Inazuma (220) is assigned to TASK FORCE / 8008 - , but the TF does not appear in the TF listing, and the ship does not appear in the ship listing.
- SC Ch-23 (875) is assigned to TASK FORCE / 8123 - , but the TF does not appear in the TF listing, and the ship does not appear in the ship listing.

Will go through the Allied ships to check if there are other obvious things as soon as I have the time.

Cheers!

The only other ship that I see in such a situation is 3234-Tromp... but I do not know if you have it active or not. I can't find more.

Please keep us informed as to when the AI versions is finished.

Another minor thing to note:

AMC Aikoku Maru and AMC Hikoku Maru have been converted into APs... but they still have their FP groups aboard :)

According to Nihon Kaigun CS Mizuho was sunk by SS Drum on May 1 (DC prolonged sinking until May 2).

The game's database has it as May 2nd. Scenario designer's call I guess :) I would be happy either way.

Its still WIP its taking almost as long as the original AI because I dont have a lot of free time to committ to it.

It will probably not be ready until Late August because I have 2 weeks in the US on holiday and day job is manic until then

Would be easier if 17th Indian started about 30% strength and already pre formed
also I think RM Viper force would have already disbvanded

Got a bare bones jap AI up and running its a bit basic and does nothing other than defend as I have not layered on any further attacks yet and its really lacking in a few areas and is a little preduictable in others

Main issue so far is Truk but I am dealing with it - should probably start as lvl 7 port in this scenario and maybe a bit more supply to help AI

I noticed a lot of "9999" in the location file, especially Japanese units. Is there a reason why these units were not included in the scenario?

it depends. It can mean the unit in question was destroyed, or it could mean that that particular unit is not valid for the scenario due to again, various reasons. For example, many parent LCU divisions also have matching organic sub units, each with it's own unique ID. If you want to represent the Division as a whole, the sub units would have ID 9999 because otherwise you'd have duplicates.

Andy is still working on the AI module. Other than that, there are some minor corrections i need to get around too, but the scenario remains playable in PBEM mode.
