Hi all,

What happens to an event ('Units Event') that contains an HQ (and the related Commander) if the same Commander has already been assigned to another HQ (example: Rommel, Graziani, etc.)?

And what happens to Commanders

I ask this because in my last game I found 2 Rommel on the map ...

And what happens to Commanders (not present in the OOB of the scenario, ex. Stilwell, if I'm not wrong) but expected by an event? What rating do they take?

thanks

-Nothing. All else being written correctly into the script you'll end up with two units with the same name.
I think this can also occur when you are in the editor; one can place two units on a map with the same name.

- That has always been a question of mine, but I never put the time into deciphering that one - what does the manual say?

In the gameplay it's impossible to rename a unit with the same name of an existing one

I didn't find about it

If it has already been assigned then another one from the list should be selected. If you've ended up with let's say two Rommel's on the map then there is a bug as that should not be happening. I'll look into this and correct this if this is the case.

If Stilwell is in the available pool, then the unit event that has Stilwell will take the rating from the available pool.

If it is a Commander name that is not listed in the pool, then the default rating will be 5 for any unlisted Commanders.
