- The tutorials
- The books
If the books:
- The RAC or
- The other two books.
I just want to learn how I can do the things I do in WIF when I play MWIF. For example, time ago I thought there was a bug because MWIF didn't let one of my fighter-bombers bomb (in range), later I knew I had a menu to select it was acting as a bomber not a fighter.
I have started with the manuals (I did 2-3years ago but didn't go too far) but in the meantime I made some tests, it took me some time to learn how to load the ships (right? button on the land unit and select "load") as well as why it didn't let me see call a form to see which land units were in Hawaii in a "naval air" phase...( I believe because they could not be selected in that phase, but I still wanted to know if I had convoys for that Nav to protect later or no, for example). Of course I could check one by one but where 45 units are it's not so simple. Finally I did it with the "doble click screen" passing pages.
I know the rules, I just want to know how to transpose them to MWIF.
I read the first pages of the manuals, where it recommends certain chapters for WIFfers but it's kind of fractionary, I would like a more general advice if possible.
The most important thing is knowing the rules. If you are experienced in the board game, most of the procedural work is already understood.
The tutorials are a good start, but not detailed enough. The RAC is a good support book, but I only use it (and the other manuals) to understand areas I am struggling with (or forgot).
The example you mention was a problem because of the need to designate your figher bomber as a bomber. I think we all had that problem, but after identifying it was a problem and checking the book, we learned to update (right click) that the unit was being used as a bomber. There are always going to be those type of problems identified. I doubt that you will find them all and will probably forget many of them.
The best way to find them is use a solo game. Just try everything you can think of. Barbarossa is a good choice, since it is small, but you will definately need to do some Naval action between Germany and Russia to get through that learning.
