Hey yall...

Giving back to the forum for all the help yall have given me. In order to understand the game, i made my own set of condensed and updated rules (to version 1.08.09 at the moment).

I will add new updates where the updates need to go as new updates come out, so this can be used as the 'living' set of rules for the game at the moment.

Some notes on these rules:

1) They are 'condensed' in that i didn't put ALL the rules in here (i.e. sections that i didn't need to re-read or that were just extra and not that important are left out), but most of the main rules are here.

2) The rules are grouped together. For example, all the various sections regarding air rules are under the main heading 'Air Rules' rather than scattered all over the place, but the rules sections kept their original rules section number (i.e. 5.3.8)

3) I have separated out LOTS of paragraphs that all ran together such that they are much easier to read now. I think that helps a lot!

4) They are highlighted either in yellow (important, must read and understand), or in light blue and underlined (VERY IMPORTANT, MUST READ AND UNDERSTAND). I think that it helps to have the really important things jump out at you, as there is so much to remember in this game!

5) They are updated to the latest errata version, but i didn't include every single one of the errata changes (for example, i may have skipped putting in an arcane engine tweak of the production system). I included only the changes that i felt i needed to remember and be aware of.

In updating them, the new sections are added with (1.08.00) or (1.08.02), and i put the new errata changes where i thought they should go in the rules, AND also the older rules sections that they now invalidate get MARKED THRU so that you know to ignore those rules now.

Also, anything in a table or rule that changed a number or something like that is now CHANGED IN BOLD RED to the new updated number per the errata.

6) Lastly, i add my own comments in some places with an italics 'Note that blah blah' under the appropriate rule.

In summary, this is NOT official by any means. However, I will continue to update it and re-post it on the forums as i do.

PLEASE anyone that finds anything wrong in this, especially with my marking out original rules sections and putting in BOLD RED new numbers, etc, let me know. I don't think i made any mistakes, but may have. If anyone thinks i put some errata in the wrong place, left out something really important from the main rules or from the errata, or anything similar to improve the rules, i am open to suggestions, with the idea not to make it perfect, but to add and improve things SO THAT IT MAKES THIS DOCUMENT HELP TO UNDERSTAND THE LATEST VERSION OF THE GAME.

So, hope this helps us keep up with this incredible game and all the efforts the updaters have put in!

Randy
:)

Thanks! Originally, did it to help me understand the game more easily and keep up with the updates, but happy to see it be able to be used by everyone, especially given how confusing it can be with all the 1.08etc errata changes...:)

As they say down under, this is bloody excellent, you little ripper.



Thanks very much. (And sorry to be a pedant but there are 4 instances of Moral as opposed to Morale)

Where are the morale issues you mention? I couldn't find any under the morale rules.

Outstanding. A new compilation was long overdue. Thanks for all of the work.

What an amount of work, well done sir, and big thank you.

Suggesting this gets stickied on the main page or war room page, as scenario/modding section is the one section that I think often gets bypassed, and no logical reason why it should be here.

Not sure whether you read your PMs rainman, so I copied this in here.

Hello, first of all thank you very much for your condensed rules! At the moment, I work through the original manual and always double check it with your version to see what has changed.
However, I think I found a mistake.
On page 84 in section "1.5.53 changes", the line "air units must not have flown more than 1/3 of their miles to do an airfield bombing attack" is crossed out. I have run tests and according to them, this rule is still active in game version 1.08.08 and I was unable to find such a change in the changelog for 1.08.09: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4076034
Sorry if this proves to be false alert and if I am just silly.

Yours sincerely
Ew. v. Kleist

Is this posted anywhere else besides in ZIP format? I am unable to download this without buying WinZip.

Windoze since Win7 should support handling .zip files (compressing/uncompressing)

It seems rainman is absent for quite some time. Is there any chance some of our in-the-know-experts is either planning on updating the condensed rules or has anything similar at hand or in the works? I am so far from being able to work on anything like that, but is there something up-to-date out there?
Cheers,
Martin
