Hope all is well with you.
STILL HAVING TROUBLE WITH THE MED'S BUT, SHOULD BE FINE
Issues that I posted were already known as far as I recall.
A) Romanian airfields that you couldn't post units to as the alert status wouldn't work properly. A raid 44 miles from an air base in Romania the units based there had a reaction time of over half an hour. They should've been at 5 minute status to take off. Hence Romania in the GC was indefensible as units wouldn't respond in time to do anything.
I AM LOOKING AT IT, THIS AREA AND ITALY WERE ALWAYS A HASSLE IN THE OLD GAME TOO, LACK OF RADAR, AND THE DETECTION LEVELS, REACTION TIMES, MOST TIMES YOU GOT TO BE LAUNCHING WAY EARLY, TO HAVE A CHANCE TO DO ANYTHING, C&C IN THIS AREA WAS VERY POOR, IT WAS THE AA GUNS THAT WERE THE MAIN DEFENCES ?
B) In Italy as allied raids moved up the boot air units available to intercept said raid would not be properly shown as available. Specifically you would have to continually select the raid to intercept and see if the SW had recognized air units further up the boot to be allowed to intercept. So in the first miles the SW would let some units be shown as ready to intercept but others not.Even though they weren't that much further up the boot. So you let the raid fly a 100 or so further miles up and try again. Eventually the SW would allow other bases to intercept. It became a truly tedious exercise each time raids flew to Italy.
AGAIN, THINK THIS IS WAD, WE DIDN'T MAKE ANY CHANGES TO ANY OF THAT, RADAR, DETECTION AND SPOTTING ARE VERY IMPORTANT AND LINKED TO AIRFIELDS, NOT ALL AIRFIELDS ARE LINKED TO THE SAME RADAR, I WILL ASK, BUT AGAIN, THAT WAS WAY, IN ITALY, THE PLAYER, ALWAYS HAD TO MOVE BACK AND DEEP, THE FRONT LINE AND MIDDLE RANGED BASES WERE ABLE TO BE JUMPED, BEFORE THEY KNEW ANYTHING WAS IN THE AREA
C) After having selected a raid to intercept the SW would display units in scattered order of ranges to intercept the raid. So a raid near Rome once selected the list of Axis air units ready to intercept would show units 600 miles or more away first. The previous incarnation of this game the SW worked perfectly and would list the closest Axis units first and then the next furthest unit and so on. It was a smooth process that would allow you to select units to intercept the raid in question. In this incarnation as it stands you get a dogs breakfast of Axis units starting with the furthest and a jumble of the rest. Leading you to have to dig through the list to select which units were closest to be assigned to intercept. A truly annoying process especially when you consider the number of raids in a turn. Would seem a corruption of the Excel smallest to greatest value function when considering ranges to the raid of interest. THINK THIS IS PART OF THE SORT FUCTION, YOU CAN DO WHAT YOU SAY BY CLICKING THE RANGE BUTTON ? THAT ALL HAD TO BE CHANGED, BUT WE PUT IN SO EACH OF THE SORTS COULD BE CLICKABLE, TO BE ABLE TO PICK WHAT YOU WANTED ?
Those are the three that I posted in the tech site about a year or so ago. Have been awaiting some sort of patch ever since. Have checked update status for the this game over the last year and have always gotten the message that I have the latest version.
Not a design issue but I did post a question in the tech forum asking what the name and location of the file that would contain the Axis production values after factories had been reallocated prior to starting the GC game. The thought being that the process of changing over your factories at the beginning is a time consuming and tedious process. So once done at the start you could save a copy of that file to a backup location. That way when you started another GC and didn't want to redo the production at the beginning you could just copy over the saved file to the location in the game directory and be saved the job of redoing it all again. Never got a response to that query. Eventually gave up checking for it as a lost cause. THAT WOULD BE IN THE LOCATION FILE, SHOULDN'T BE A EASY FILE TO REWORK, IT WOULD SAVE TIME, IF YOU WANT TO DO THE SAME THING OVER, BUT
Once again thanks for your efforts and hope you are well.
Love the game just would like to be able to play the Axis GC and have it WAD.
I HAVE BEEN HAVING A LOT OF TROUBLE GETTING THINGS DONE, FROM THE MATRIX FORUM (SOME REASON, IT SENDING ME TO A ERROR PAGE, WHEN I TRY TO SEND MESSAGES OR MOVE AROUND) BUT TRYING TO GET A HOLD OF HARLEY, AND AM LOOKING AT WHAT YOU ARE SAYING, TO SEE WHAT I CAN SEE, AND IF I CAN FIGURE SOMETHING OUT
