Sid may have forgotten?...He has had my e mail address for years, and am still on his mailing list for updates.

To be safe, I did just now send it to him again.

I am in Indiana, time wise....
Looking forward to this.

Excellent!....I hit a herd of deer one night just outside the London exit on I 70...Not real happy with Ohio's limitations concerning the thinning of deer populations, lol

If there is a link describing the demo, I do not have it, so I have no description of chair 3, etc...

RHS Update 3.20

https://1drv.ms/f/s!Ap7XOIkiBuUwhPxFuII1ZkrVQefJBQ

This update is simply the location file and two new
late war pehexe.dat files (brought into sync with the
earlier ones with respect to straits and, sometimes,
the road across Kamchatka and a trail near Manila).

The news is I finished the Japanese start turn for the
demonstration (Level II Test 2). There is now a three
person Allied team which will get the file tomorrow
(with the Russians set up not to attack and factories
set not to produce late war aircraft). They will change
the password and enter their turn in the next few days.

Having read the descriptions of this test in PM's and e mails sent to me, I am positive I do not have the time to dedicate to assisting in this project.

Over the years, I have been very pleased to have contributed to RHS, (and the WITP/AE community, and game, (credited or otherwise).

As a former army Ranger, I was very unhappy when forced to retire from my "real life" with what has already proven to be a crippling bout with cancer.
I survived, but am now forced to certain limitations.
Energy and ambulation have been effected the most.
With much interest shown in this project, I am confident there will be small problem finding a replacement for me.

Regrets, Bob.

(I sent e mails to both Brian and Sid ref this issue.)

Real life is infinitely more important than any game, so take care and never forget the golden rule: carpe diem.

Sid, I'm the appointed Clown-in-Chief in the Chinese theatre, so watch your back! It was a lot fun stopping and harassing the mighty Wehrmacht [PBEM, no AI] circa Barbarossa '41 in WitE with my 1-1 ants.

Let's see what can the light Japanese army do...

RHS Update 3.21

https://1drv.ms/f/s!Ap7XOIkiBuUwhPxFuII1ZkrVQefJBQ

An allied play-tester reported 19 locations as producing
errors if loaded into the new (and 32 bit) version of Tracker.
[Apparently Tracker does not work with 64 bit AE]

He reported 18 of them had commas - and indeed - 17 of them
did. These are delimiters or separators in many programs,
and I should not have used them in location names. Two
cases do not have commas, so I re-created the records from
stock files (which were the same for those locations - that
is it was the same place - what is in the hex differs slightly).
So this update will facilitate checking to see if Tracker likes
these new location names better?

There are "two" new Soviet aircraft. They are actually the same
aircraft in different configurations. They are the CCCP-B semi-
rigid airships ("blimps with keels"). They may be used as
transport aircraft or as recon aircraft. They WILL add to ongoing
games. Art wise, they look like US Navy blimps. They were added
because they are strictly historical, not because they are particularly
likely to be very useful.

As usual of late, I added two more late war pwhexe.dat files, updating
straits, getting rid of a half hex of secondary road that should be trail
on Luzon, and getting rid of a half hex of secondary road on Kamchatka,
because its military road was slightly too long.

Tillius: Welcome aboard! You will find MANY unique features to China in RHS/AE Level II. This is a test -
I wish you to use all of these capabilities.

River craft often can change functions - sometimes in a single day - sometimes longer. This way you
can make transports, landing vessels, minesweepers, minelayers, gunboats (etc) as you need them. Rivers
are very developed - but the game starts in the "dry season" - be sure to exploit their longer navigable
length in wetter times of year. An art clue is that generally a river shown in wide art is navigable in
wet seasons, while a river shown in narrow art is not. Notes written on the map art tend to explain which
rivers are seasonal. This is general, not only in China.

There are a couple of regiments of actual ROC Marines.

There are many kinds of aircraft, and there are aircraft factories for China in India, at Lao Wing, at Chunking
and at Kunming. I turned off those not yet in production. They should be turned on when the first day of the first
month of production is reached. Each aircraft type not in production in 1941 has (month/year) following its name
so you know when it starts production. Some of these are just because they were used operationally. Others are
very nice to have. Even trainers - if used as bombers or recon planes operationally - are included. China has
a small but real air force, and if hoarded for use on special occasions, usually can surprise some poor Japanese
unit or location badly. If left too close to the enemy at known bases, they might be exterminated!

Don't forget the controversial guerilla units. These work superbly. They "live off the land" - and come in two
flavors. NRA (ROC is officially the National Resistance Army) ones get just enough supplies to support the full
strength "regiment" (battalion). RED (communist ones) get slightly more supplies - so they can slowly build up
enough to support an attack even if TOTALLY isolated from locations with friendly supplies. These units can
wander cross country almost without regard for supply sources. They are not very useful as such, but great ways
to harass lines of supply, and capture undefended locations.

We added the important "heavy guns" or "medium artillery" - regiments of 105 and 150 mm guns (often German). These
were rarely committed, but when they did, won battles. See the First and Second Battles of Changsha.

RHS China has vast numbers of replacements provided - sometimes 600 squads a month of a single type - and this for
large numbers of squad types. This is because combat units in AE for China usually reappear after 30 days - but at
1/3 strength. Otherwise, many units in China are not at full strength at start or when they appear as brand new
units. You need huge numbers of replacements to be able to have some units fit to fight.

China also has two regiments of proper engineers - not pioneers. At the start you can't see them because they
are road building in Tibet. In this scenario, the historical plan to build up the Tea & Horse Caravan Road to a
primary road is implemented. [To do it in a timely way, engineers were sent to both ends of the road. Tibet -
a quasi independent place - refused to let them enter the country. But in fact it was weak - and in this scenario -
the British - who supplied what weapons they had - put pressure on them to let the ROC engineers work. Fairly early
in the game these regiments will appear and the road will be a highway from India to, basically, Kunming. Some
Allied units can use it for strategic movement after that.] Note Tibet has three static defense "regiments" -
very weak units whose "heavy weapons" are two Vickers machine guns. These defend the two capitals and the one
part of Tibet which was just "conquered" in a minor war you never heard of with ROC China! Tibet has no airfields
and it is hard to build them there - due to extreme altitude - and in game terms - because it is hard to get supplies
to build anything over the long roads and trails. Tibet trails often are closed in Winter. Tibet is treated
as British Commonwealth in RHS.

Note that Sinkiang (and a sliver of adjoining territory) is treated as Soviet. There are even NKVD regiments in it.
But there is also a civilian ROC base force (to support a weird airline operating Junkers trimotors - that airline
being taken over by the ROC government).

Note the ROC airliners (also taken over by the government) and other planes at Hong Kong are NOT required to sit
and be wiped out by the Japanese. You MAY move some or all of them if you wish. There are no house rules against
flying Allied planes to China - although in fact even ROC paid for fighters were forced to leave China. But in this
scenario, the Allies have great flexibility because of Japans aggressive pre war build up. The real problem is
not needing allied planes in some other area - they ARE allowed to operate in China (just as, by 1944, the Allies
actually were doing in force).

I failed to add to notice the 200th Motorized Division. An elite unit that won several
important battles against odds, it is the former NRA 200th Tank Division. When its T-26
inventory got down to 13, they were stripped from the division:

3 (a platoon) went to NRA HQ in Chunking
and
10 (a company) became the Recon Company of the 5th Army Group - the HQ of the 200th.
This HQ and the 200th Motorized are at Tsuyung, Western China, where they won important
battles against Japanese invading from Burma.

This division is the only start of game Chinese unit able to move at armor speed.

It is entirely motorized infantry except for a full regiment of BA-7 armored cars - which
more or less serve as its "tank regiment" tactically.

Late in the war all the tanks above are replaced by Shermans. Other units form up to
U.S. Standards in India, but until then, these are the only important AFV units in China.

RHS Update 4.00

https://1drv.ms/f/s!Ap7XOIkiBuUwhPxFuII1ZkrVQefJBQ

This update has a major change in the number series because it is
associated with a newer version of WITP/AE.

There are some changes to aircraft data because of eratta detected.

There are some changes to the names of location because about 13
contained commas which prevented Tracker from working. Two other
locations generated errors. Those records were recreated from stock
and are not reported to cause errors any more. A few other eratta
were fixed related to land units: A Japanese division had one sub
unit assigned to the wrong command, so it could not combine, for example.

Mifune decided to work on Ki-97 art. I pointed out that the charcoal
drawing we have by a Japanese engineer could be colorized because it is
a fine bit of art - there is even a shadow on the runway - and markings
on the runway. If we turn black to green, and color the sun insignia,
it will look like game art. The top and alpha were successfully made
from the Ki-67 - only the side needs re-colorizing.

Two Spring 1945 pwhexe.dat files were added - for historical and for
Japan Enhanced Scenarios - bringing their straits into sync with earlier
files. Only 45 Monsoon, 45 Fall, 45 Winter, 46 Spring and 46 Monsoon
pwhexe files remain to be similarly updated.

I do not think I understand your proposal. It is also safer to update the entire
set in case someone has not got all the previous updates.

As far as I know, there is only one way to create a link to the installer. Are
you saying I can open it in the cloud and create links to subordinate parts of it?
I did not see that in the instructions.

I have no idea how the installer process works[#] but at the moment "you" can update one file for say only 1mb but unless we know what file(s) it is we have to download all 2.5GB all over again.

[#] i assume its just copies files/folders into the witpae directory

So, for small changes,if you can list the file names of the files that have changed we can just download those specific files and paste them into our RHS install.

As a separate question does your link include any old/ obsolete files i.e. can you remove some old stuff to reduce the download size?

Sid...For some time you devoted a lot of time to the concept of "seasons" and I know for a fact you also used the time to show the addition of new roads as historic time passed.
I'm sure a lot of us anticipated this new "invention/chrome addition to the mod, but I for one do not know how to make the seasonal changes over time.
Do the seasons change themselves with a time trigger, or do we change them manually, and if so, how?

Thank you, as ever.

RHS Update 4.01

https://1drv.ms/f/s!Ap7XOIkiBuUwhPxFuII1ZkrVQefJBQ

This minor update follows detail examination of the files.
Mainly scenario files (air group, location, leader, ship) have
changed to correct eratta. Some of these changes will correct
issues in ongoing games, others will correct only new games.

NOT addressed is the last reported eratta: some minor vessels
in China, and one in the USSR, are either in the wrong hex, or
the hex is not coded properly in pwhexe.dat. Since ships are
hard to find, it will require some time to find them all.

Until someone writes a switcher - as we had back in pre AE days for WITP - this is done manually
On the first day of each season, go to the RHS PWHEXE folder and copy the season into a working
folder. The second one for a historical game is II42SPRINGpwhexe.dat. Rename it pwhexe.dat. Copy that
to the top level AE folder.

The seasons are

Spring March & April

Monsoon May through August

Fall September & October

Winter November through February

The FOLDER RHS PWHEXE & PWZLINK has a legacy name. We once had to change the pwzlink file every year.
I think I found a way not to do that - using Ice to prevent illegal movement. So we no longer change
the links. This is currently being verified by testing.

Rivers do not work properly in code. I have done numbers of things in data in numbers of units to make
forts more likely to engage. Adding detection devices helps. River combat is also sometimes not as
deadly as it should be in my view. I had a very hard time making "river booms" for China work.

We follow stock - there are two kinds of rivers. Those with river hex-sides (most) and those with "both hex-sides"
for deep draft vessels. I also have rivers with shoals on the approaches - see Talapo Mission for example. You must
enter by ONE channel in spite of there being three hex-sides. And you must be shallow draft to pass. ON top of that,
I put a 300 ton restriction in house rules (1500 tons for barge groups - 5 x 300 ton barges and a tug).

Land weapons do work. Indeed, land weapons arm ships! In stock and in history. They work as well as they usually
do - which is not quite perfect but generally rather well. RHS gunboats and converted junks etc have numbers of
land weapons - machine guns in particular - 50 mm Krupp howitzers - name it.

The installer does not "know" your computer's install. It assumes a default install, but it might be
wrong. In any case, it will create RHS folders of its own because there are folders not used by the
stock game. RHS Documentation for example. And a PWHEXE & PWZLINK folder which is a library.

You must copy from the installer SCEN folder EVERYTHING to the AE SCEN folder NOTHING is overwritten -
so other scenarios will remain if you do not use the 121 to 129 number range.

You must copy from the installer ART folder EVERYTHING to the AE ART folder. SOME WILL be overwritten.
Unless you never play non-RHS, use a separate install to run it.

You must copy three files to the top level AE folder:

pwhexe.dat
pwzlink.dat
pwzone.dat

All are in the PWHEXE & PWZLINK folder library.

you saying I can open it in the cloud and create links to subordinate parts of it?
I did not see that in the instructions.

any chance you can just post links to the updated files? or at least list the "folder/filename" changes so that we don't have to download all 2.5 gig every time you do a micro update

thanks



I have no idea how the installer process works[#] but at the moment "you" can update one file for say only 1mb but unless we know what file(s) it is we have to download all 2.5GB all over again.

[#] i assume its just copies files/folders into the witpae directory

So, for small changes,if you can list the file names of the files that have changed we can just download those specific files and paste them into our RHS install.

As a separate question does your link include any old/ obsolete files i.e. can you remove some old stuff to reduce the download size?

The installer does not "know" your computer's install. It assumes a default install, but it might be
wrong. In any case, it will create RHS folders of its own because there are folders not used by the
stock game. RHS Documentation for example. And a PWHEXE & PWZLINK folder which is a library.

You must copy from the installer SCEN folder EVERYTHING to the AE SCEN folder NOTHING is overwritten -
so other scenarios will remain if you do not use the 121 to 129 number range.

You must copy from the installer ART folder EVERYTHING to the AE ART folder. SOME WILL be overwritten.
Unless you never play non-RHS, use a separate install to run it.

You must copy three files to the top level AE folder:

pwhexe.dat
pwzlink.dat
pwzone.dat

All are in the PWHEXE & PWZLINK folder library.

I do not think I understand your proposal. It is also safer to update the entire
set in case someone has not got all the previous updates.

thanks for the reply and some useful info, however none of this was what i was asking about

i.e. is there anything you can do so that we don't have to download all 2.5gb of data just for small updates - even just listing what files have changed since the previous version would help

Thanks el cid, will have to try your idea of land weapons in river monitors. I guess shallow draft only applies to barge, PT's, MGB's but i think i have not any rivers with that limitation.

It is historically accurate for boats to use "land" weapons...P.T. 109 had an army 37mm AT gun mounted on it's foredeck which had been swiped from the army in a trade, (of sorts).

m10bob, this is a game question Army Weapon vs Naval Gun not an historical accurate question. It seems from el cid experience that LCU's tend to ignore riverine boats and this might make more odds that it occurs with same artillery type in both sides.

Shallow draft applies to all naval units. It is not really restrictive enough in my view.
But it keeps out really large vessels.

River hex-sides are inherently also shallow draft hex-sides. So a battleship can never cross one.
But consider the Yangtze - it is not coded with river hex-sides. Rather with both hexsides. So deep
draft ships can use it. This is true: ocean ships of deep draft have been built at Wuhan since the
19th century!

I do not think being an "army weapon" matters at all. That is, any gun on a naval vessel has the
same chance of engaging if the target is on the correct "bearing" (within the front, side, or rear
arc - all of course means 360 degrees - and probably should never be used with a gun). It would
require rather sophisticated code to "care" if the weapon was an army weapon. Gary seems to prefer
clever but very simple algorithms. I am shocked how well they work given how simple they seem to be.

There are real problems at night - which I guess is somewhat as it should be. There is no chance a
weapon will fire unless the target is seen. So I created "spotters" ( a form of surface radar with
a 10% chance of detection ) and issue one per battery in a unit. A battery being 2 to 6 guns, depending
on the organization. CD units often have 3-6 batteries = 30-60% chance of detection at night. It helped,
but not very much. On a river, at night, you always have a chance of getting through.
