i dont recall steve sending me a report on the issue.perhaps Davidss got one. i havent talked to davidss about the problems in a few days.
its interesting that the losses were due to damage and injuries.i dont know which saved games davidss may have sent him??
id have to say that i was sure that some of / most of those units in question were not damaged or injured in any way. a MK 4 command tank comes to mind..also a command squad in a diff BG.....that im sure wasnt even in the battle / fight and it disapeared.

if davidss is happy with the out come ....so am i.
thanks for looking at the issue for us.

Ok

I'll report that the person with the reported issue has not received a report.

Ha..I see this thread goes back to 2009... so must have been an earlier unnamed poster the report was sent to.

Attached is a saved game where a PzIV Command tank (from the top left slot of Active Roster) is not appearing in the battle.
Once you load into the battle ... one slot of the Teams display in blank.
Other things noticed while looking into this further:
1.If you remove all other units from the Active Roster except this PzIV Command tank, and then try and load to the battle ... the game will crash.
2.If you start the battle with the missing PzIV Command tank, and then after the battle ends ... you will see it back in the soldier review screen. But when continuing the campaign to the point where this BG battles again ... there is one less PzIV Command tank than there is supposed to be.
3.It looks like the Commander of this PzIV Command tank is injured (not sure if this is relevant or not).
4.I also checked the fpools file ... same number of this unit is available for each day. So the my theory of less quantity available for progression of days causing the problem doesn't apply in this case.

In order to replicate this ... you'll need these files installed in this order:
a.Install Ground Tactics ver. 2.0 with the latest ModSwap ... both available here:
http://closecombat.matrixgames.com/LongestDay/tLDmods.html

b.Put file called "GT To Bayeux" into this folder:
C:\Matrix Games\Close Combat The Longest Day\DATA\CAMPAIGN

c.Put saved game file called "GT2 unit missing when game starts" into folder:
C:\Matrix Games\Close Combat The Longest Day\Games\Save

Select the saved campaign and click exe, next, etc ... until you are at Bayeux with 902 Lehr.
