Your last post - skip up and in the midst of ti you'll see a big black box going across most of the width of the report. There's one in an earlier report too.


For what it's worth, I have the same problem. I see it in some of the AARs I read as well. At first I thought it was a deliberate blacking out of info but I've convinced myself it's a display glitch of some kind. The box appears to always be the same size.

The AI script I am playingh agaionst is one of my test ones and its for the enhance Japan scenario - you cannnot rely on the release version acting this way.... oh no it will do far worse things to you.




Hi Andy,

That is VERY ENCOURAGING news, especially to those of us who primarily play against the AI! I was somewhat on the fence about buying AE. I'm an old WITPer and never had any problem with the minor bugs, but was never able to finish a campaign due to the, shall we say, lackluster AI. You know, how it would park it's capital ships right next to a heavily defended enemy airfield...for days...with obvious results. Or how it would send unprotected convoys right past your bases, or leave it's own most vital bases undefended or without air cover..etc, etc.
Well, I'm off the fence now! An improved (even just a basically competent) AI will be like a dream come true. Can't wait to get my hands on this one!

Oh, and thank you for sharing your fascinating AAR's with us! I'd like to request a screenshot of your ops around PM and Canton if it's not too much trouble.

thanks again!

OK the battles are mixed the Japanese AI REALLY didnt like the Chindits on that rail line the whole 18th IJA Div came out and kicked me out.

About a Bn of Chindits v 18th Div not a contest.

At the crossroads the allies look like the conquest of Western Australia is on - the Armour of 3rd Motor Bde and the Armoured Cars of 2/11th Bn making short work of the Japanese Combat engineers

The Motor Bde has a Regt of 25 Pounders, 24 Humber Armoured Cars and a motorised Infantry Bn plus other attached units - its quite a nice if small combined arms unit - 2/11th Ard Car has 52 Armoured Cars - if I take Kalgoorlie that opens up the rail link

Things I don't understand:

1. If there were no planes (airbone, standby, or scrambling) where did they come from?

quote:

CAP engaged:
284 Ku S-1 Det A with A6M2 Zero (0 airborne, 0 on standby, 0 scrambling)
(3 plane(s) diverted to support CAP in hex.)
 


The following shows 13 Wildcats on cap but, in the details I only count  (3 from VF3 + 2 from VF71 = 5 intercepting)?

quote:

Allied aircraft
F4F-4 Wildcat x 13

Japanese aircraft losses
Ki-43-Ib Oscar: 1 destroyed, 1 damaged
Ki-43-IIb Oscar: 1 destroyed
Ki-49-IIa Helen: 1 destroyed, 13 damaged
Ki-61-Ia Tony: 1 destroyed, 2 damaged

Allied aircraft losses
F4F-4 Wildcat: 1 destroyed, 12 damaged

CAP engaged:
VF-3 with F4F-4 Wildcat (3 airborne, 0 on standby, 0 scrambling)
3 plane(s) intercepting now. ***
0 plane(s) not yet engaged, 3 being recalled, 1 out of immediate contact.
Group patrol altitude is 9000
Time for all group planes to reach interception is 49 minutes
VF-71 with F4F-4 Wildcat (2 airborne, 0 on standby, 0 scrambling)
2 plane(s) intercepting now. ***
0 plane(s) not yet engaged, 1 being recalled, 3 out of immediate contact.
Group patrol altitude is 9000
Time for all group planes to reach interception is 50 minutes
2 planes vectored on to bombers

It's 7 for VF-3 and 6 for VF-71, equaling 13.

As for the Jap one, there's a chance that planes busy in other hexes nearby (sweeping or escorting) can be diverted to CAP duty.

perhaps someone should tell the AI not to keep bombing ships out of the stratosphere with WWII medium bombers...

hopefully the AI will be more than just an "opponent for 2 mins to find out about some new toggles"...


Perhaps you should read Andy's starting post, especially the bit about the Jap AI invading and conquering huge parts of Australia and sinking five carriers, and then consider whether this has ever happened in a stock AI game.



try to sink those carriers from 18.000 ft with Helens dropping 4x250kg bombs. The AI also sunk carriers in WITP stock. Happened probably to everyone when he still didn´t know how the game works. But hey, just let the AI keep on bombing from that alt, as you can see, it doesn´t hit anything anyway...

Try "Paint.net". It's windows only, so if you're running something else tell me and I'll make an alternate recommendation. BTW, I am NOT a graphics guru so this is a true peer recommendation. Get it at [http://www.getpaint.net/], and the on-line help is at [http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/en/index.html].

It's free & really easy to use.

Question: What would happen to those units waiting to move by rail if you capture the railhead and they begin to move, then the enemy re-captures the railhead. 2nd, you capture the railhead and they begin to move and (a previously) unspotted enemy combat LCU moves onto the rail line and attacks them en route?

I thought I just said that five minutes ago...


Sometimes Matrix servers give me the 'waiting' routine for several minutes. It also sometimes happens when I write a post, hit 'OK', then it sits there for a few minutes until it hits. A minor annoyance.

EDIT: For example this very post did it.

Andy, this is a great AAR! Thank you so much for posting this! I have really enjoyed reading it.

I have a few questions;
1. I noticed the B25's bombing Port Moresby. Where are they coming from?
2. I looks like several squadrons have more than one aircraft type. Is that correct?
3. The USS Wasp sank after two torpedoes? That seems too quickly. Was there a critical hit? How does the new damage model work on ships? Are they weaker than WITP?
4. Why aren't there more fighters defending Munda? It seems like they are out of supplies. Are you sending more supplies to put up more of a defense?

1): B-25s can attack PM from Australia.

2): No squadron can have more than one type of aircraft, but you can have squadrons with several detachments.

3): That's for Andy to answer, but it's not without precedent.

4): Munda is an appalling cack-hole, so they're almost certainly finding it next to impossible to generate fighter sorties.
