This will also apply to the Request Veteran pilot screen.
In addition, I have made the column heading of these 2 screens turn Green when selected for sort.

Noticed that none (or almost none) of the sorted columns are highlighted on the many sort screens. Does make it difficult to remember which one was last sorted. At least for me

Incredible work.

A massive thank you for your continuing efforts to push the game and its interface to their limits.

If no air HQ in range, then '1' is allowed from admin purposes (added back in version 1084b - patch 2 IIRC).

Basically without an air HQ, a base supports groups equal to its size +1.



Thanks, missed that one. What's the thinking behind this please as I'm not sure about it's something I agree with.

Not sure if this has been reported before but I noteced that Escort TFs don't show up in the TF list:

Using the latest Beta 1108q6.

Not sure how long this has been an issue or if they have ever shown up.

Michaelm,

Thanks that's great to see. I spent 90 minutes pulling pilots out individually today so it is great to see that making the cut.

Is there any ETA on the next beta? If it is going to be in the next few days I'll stop any transfers to or from the reserves until it is ready. It'll save hours of work, literally.

Question about the beta: If a game is started using the beta, when it is released as the official version and "upgraded", is there any issue that may cause it to have to be restarted vs not having all the bells and whistles?

I think the answer is no, but I would like to know for sure.

Nemo - most of the Beta come out late Sunday evening, MichaelM's time. That would make it late Sunday afternoon for you and and late Sunday morning for me. This isn't always true, but he does put out a new version most Sundays for the last few months.

I'm sure this has been brought up before (too lazy to search in the middle of a PBEM).

VMSB-244 can upgrade from Vindicators to F4F-Wildcats? Shouldn't that be SBD-3s?

Playing will all updates including up to Beta q6.

I already posted in the Air OOB thread...

They do show up. Sort by mission type or TF number.
Not sure what the initial order of TFs is in that screen, but they are there on my lists.

[edit]
The initial order is by 'aircraft'. Not so obvious, but I have decided to change this to TF # for the initial sort.
The sort order normally persists from turn to turn (or until game restarted), so you can change to suit yourselves.

OK got it, thought I had sorted by TF number, but your right - its there. Initial sort order on TF would be much more intuitive

Thanks

Air unit name corrupt. An Aus Spitfire Sqn based at Long Is (100,124) is now call '440930' which looks like a date. I'm using the latest patch but I have no idea when this happened so can't pin it down to a version but I think its recent. Save attached.

Sorry.
Without a before, it isn't possible to say how/when that happened.

That date doesn't match any dates associated with that air group.

Hi
No.80 squadron RAAF?slot 3131 scen 001
I think this is a database error - running game with official patches only - NO BETA'S - and the name change to 440930 appeared in that game on 440930 and if you look in the editor it shows 'rename' 440930 taking place on 'name delay' 440930

My scenario #1 (oct 2010) doesn't have a rename. It is from the last data patch, IIRC.

Looking at a test scenario I have based on the released scenario #1 (June 2009), it does show the rename as IronDuke says.
So if this was a long running game, then it probably used the 'bad data' from the original scenario.

[Explains why I couldn't see anything in the editor for scen 001 when I first looked.]

Yes, but in addition really you have made so much improvement in the UI.  I would say from the last official patch to now, we have whacked 100 clicks per turn ... that's a lot.

THANKS!

It's because we're all maniacs, sometimes fighting for small fixes like that difference between 75 and 88 mm... like it was really going to change the results of war...

I can live witht he name but has it become part of the game when a new one is started?

I think it was bad data from the original scenario files. My files look okay, but an old test scenario has the date as the Rename text, which tends to confirm that it was just bad data and not a bug causing it.

Michael - Thanks for the new feature of being able to harvest pilots 5 or 10 at a time. In my game as Japan, I have many air groups in Japan that have a few highly skilled pilots. If I use this feature, then they would end up at TRACOM or Reserve pool. Some also include the leader as an active pilot. If I was to make these few pilots inactive (shows up as 1 in "Delay" column), can I then withdraw the 5 or 10 pilots?? Thus, any pilot which shows any number besides a 0 in the "Delay" column cannot be withdrawn using this feature.

Edit: Added a screenshot. I want to keep the two pilots in yellow and the leader (shows asterisk next to name) and harvest about 15 to 20 other pilots.
