Hi All,

I am playing WITPAE, against AI, I am playing Japanese.
I am wondering when the ohka will be available, is it the same 15 hex 1944 rule as for the kamikazes? I do not see anything in the manual regarding the ohka.

i remember using it years ago in the WITP game, and got great results using the ohka.

MXY7 Ohka 11 becomes active on 10/44, building at 90 a month.

MXY7 Ohka 22 becomes active on 12/45, building at 12 a month.

I recall it not being available in stock - you need to install the database updates from Andy in order to have it available, I think.

in the stock scenario 2 game against the AI I have going, it is listed in the Weapons database and says:
Ohka 11 available 0145 --
which I take to mean 1 Jan 1945, but I haven't made it that far yet to know for sure.

Maybe it varies by scenario?

i am playing scenario 2, it is in the armaments list indeed.
but I was wondering if it came available, and if so, does it need the kamikaze requirements? or will it be available at date

In stock scenarios 1 and 2 there is a database error.
MXY7 Ohka 11 and 12 are available when date come but they have production number 0(zero) so planes cant use them.

This would be the link to the AndyMac scenario updates.

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3198064

If this doesn't do it, the only other option would be the Game Editor,
I haven't used the game editor so someone will clarify that soon I am sure.
(great community here)

but then, I cannot fix the game I already started, I have to start new?
I loaded the editor, and changed the 0 to 1, allowing production

Changing it to 1 will not help much.
That mean You will get one Ohka monthly.
Numbers should be like those in post 2 (90 and 12) or anything You want


If You play unofficial scenario You probably only need to change it in editor and upgrade save when game ask You.
For official scenario You will have to manually overwrite scenario files first because editor cant change official scenario files.


As for AndyMac scenario updates. They are great. They fix lot more problems with database, not only Ohka. Because this is game against AI i will use them. For PBEM games updates are also recommended but i will use them only for new games.

does scenario 4 have the same issue? japan strong, quiet china?
I also play PBEM, if I change my database, I might not be able to play pbem anymore, due to the fact I have a different database

I checke dit with the editor, just made the okha available and loaded the saved scenario
it will build 36! a month. I run the beta version, it seems to be fixed there.

so I expect it to work in 45, when the time trigger makes it available

From what I recall other threads - not personal experience:

If you change/modify and on going pbem game, your opponent will get a warning that the database has changed and asked to accept the change or not. So you should advise your opponent what you are doing before editing the file.
