In the Case Yelllow scenario, the AP cost for German units to convert enemy hexes is supposed to be zero, versus the default cost of 5.

This doesn't seem to happen - conversion cost remains at 5; at least with v1.06c.

Looking at the event list, the variation for Germany is supposed to be handled by event id18 (slot 17), "German Offensive Doctrine Rulevar".

This is supposed to do a ExecSetRuleVar(4,0,0) if it's the German turn and ExecSetRuleVar(4,5,0) for all other regimes, determined by a CheckTurn check which assumed that Germany is turn 0. But actually it triggers for France rather than Germany, which I assume means that France's is actually turn 0.

Obviously this is pretty fundamental for the scenario - the German advance is much slower etc etc.

Hi Sizlard,

Verified and confirmed. Going to make a new version asap.

Best wishes,
Vic

Playing AI Germans vs human everybody else, Case Yellow under v1.06d, I'm getting a crash to Windows at the start of the French turn during the "Setting up Execution" phase. Sometimes fiddling around a bit with units and trying again avoids the crash, but it happens ~75% of the time.

Save game attached, ready to end the German turn. I've modded the scenario a bit, but I don't think anything very major & would be surprised if the modding is causing this crash.

I don't find anything like a crashlog.

Running Win10; think all drivers are up to date but I guess I should go check that.

If you changed the CheckTurn coding for v1.06d, maybe some bug slipped in with that?

Hi Sizlard,

Took a look at yours savegame.

Bug seems to be on your side.

It seems your changed the events.

In the vanilla scenario version the event slots number up to 119, in yours upto 118.

The problem here is that some action cards have an AILabel that refers to a specific event slot.

Once the event slots change it can point to a wrong event or to an unexisting event, causing the error.

If you add events add them at the end of the list as new ones.

Do not delete events if you mod but just change them to 'No Check' so they do not execute.

Hope this helps.

Let me know if you have other issues or a question.

best wishes,
Vic

I don't mind the 5AP penalty for Axis movement but for SUPPLY it seems quite critical.

Also, as I advance as Axis towards the coast with unprotected flanks, because my infantry can't keep up, the French are able to advance faster than they should into territory I'd already overrun (no AP penalty).

Overall though the end result (against the AI) should still result in an Axis triumph.
