July 1944, the allies are retaking Burma



As you can see I do not yet own Rangoon. I have made 2 deliberate attacks and have had units on the Rangoon hex for a few turns now.

This is stock, Scen 2. v1.0.6.1108r9 (no beta).

This one was fixed quite a while ago in the Beta.

I do have a follow up question. Was the nature of the bug graphical, or is the Burma Road actually open??

It came up in a 2x2 PBM I am in. Although I am the relevant player on the Allied side, I did not try to confirm that it was open via supply tallies, I just noted that the display said it was open. When MichaelM (the programmer) fixed it he pretty well implied that the bug was the road actually being open when it should be closed.

So, AFAIK the bug is the road actually being open.

According to the manual (p. 254) it is not necessary for the Allies to control Rangoon in order for the Burma Road to be open. A path between Tsuyung and Ledo is supposed to be sufficient for the Burma Road to be open, even if Rangoon is controlled by the enemy.

That error in the manual is old news.

Under official patch it is not necessary to have Rangoon

Under beta it is different story
21/10/2012: 1119e - Burma road not open if Rangoon in enemy hands

So it looks like the OP is seeing something WAD, because he admitted to not using the beta.

Historically I think it would be a good idea for the Ledo-Tsuyung connection be in effect starting January 1945 since that's when the Ledo road was completed.

No. There is a bug in official patch. It was fixed in the Beta.

The manual has an error. The game does not replicate the historical road that closely. With all of the different factors involved, they settled on the "Burma Road" going to Rangoon. Several discussions of this can be found by search (I do not have any links to them).
