So, I've been playing Panther games since the original RDOA, and only today did I seriously get round to reading the manual, (and the old strat guide - that I paid for, long ago). That might account for some of my stupider posts, of course.... Have to recommend reading the damn manual to everyone. I'm amazed what's in this game, continually amazed at how detailed, historical and ambitious the project is. I was looking at 'supply' just now. Wish I'd read it all about three years ago. It's a fantastic game, Dave, et al - really an achievement, as it is (warts? and all). I keep saying this, but there's no game like it in terms of what it seeks to do with the AI (friendly and enemy). Been playing it this long without a manual and now I discover, through the manual, that there's even more to it than I thought. Lol.

I have been reading the manual as I have been going along, watched, played and enjoyed the tutorial, and have to agree with you phoenix, its an awesome detailed game that with the dedication of someone like Dave, as I have seen his posts on here, can only get better with time.

The reason I bought this game is from reading the posts where he describes the work, he is putting into this game, and the communication he has with his "Fans?" ( To strong a word? I don't think so ;)

...at least you admit it. ....seriously, the manuals are excellent and obviously there´s a whole lot of good work put into it by all contributors. There´s hardly a day tinkering with data for me, without rereading at least portions of the GM.

There has been a trend over the past 10-15 years in the quality of game manuals. That's a downward trend.

I was very impressed from the first glance. And then the details? Whew! We have a lot of good, well-written detailed stuff, and it contributes to the enjoyment of the game.
