John, I'll echo the comments on Swordfish but really go beyond that to all British naval aviation planes. Seems to be a production hole for all of them relative to the capacity of your British carriers, especially if you are running withdrawals turns off.


Thanks for backing that up Sean. When the files come back from Michael, I shall work on this issue.

I have a question about the following units..

Kure 2nd SNLF
Sasebo 2nd SNLF
Babeldaop Naval Fortress

They are not in the RA scenario is there a reason why they were eliminated?

Enforcer


The vast majority of SNLF have been taken out and replaced at 3-to-1 for SNLF Assault Brigades.

John

I have been playing this mod since it came out but now the game fails to load - please see below.

I have WITP AE loaded on my computer for more than 10 years. Never had any problems.
I am on windows 8.1

I have an installation also of focus Pacific no problem
I have an installation of RA, BUT

When I go to load a game turn I get the following error message as per picture. The game itself loads fine.

I have done all the virus scans and also removed all files from the computer nothing seems to work. I have also updated the graphics software and so want nothing works. Can you help with this problem?

John,

Please check the conversions for the Jap CS class : Chiyoda and sisters at RA; They are not converting to CVLs even when disbanded at the bigger repair shipyards at HI;

Morphin,

I think the latest ones are the ones on his website. For your information I have been playing RA7.9 one behind the newest one and it's actually an excellent scenario we have been playing on two-day turns play by email and are now in August 1944. I can also tell you that I have made a slightly modified version of the same thing RA version 8.0 this scenario will hopefully receive the sanction of John and be put on his website as well as other places. It's imminently about to be released we are just doing the final touches and just checking that everything is correct. Fundamentally it's a version based on the idea that technology is a bit behind at the start of the war but then accelerates faster through it. This means you have to start with a lot of obsolete equipment and you end up with some very modern equipment.

The Omaha CL to CLAA conversion is missing. Both ship class 408 and 926 are checked off as covert to class. 408 should be checked as covert from class.

Both BTS-H and BTS-L are wrong.

Since Nomad brought me into the Forum, I wanted to share that I am doing a little clean-up of the Mod. Playing with Lew thru March 42 currently has made me notice a couple of things. DITTO for Sean and I's match. Just crossed into May 1944 and have found a couple of ship upgrade issues that need some cleaning.

I take it you noticed this:

The Omaha CL to CLAA conversion is missing. Both ship class 408 and 926 are checked off as covert to class. 408 should be checked as covert from class.

Both BTS-H and BTS-L are wrong.


I swear I looked at this when we were doing our checking, but either it got missed or changed, doesn't really matter, it just needs to be fixed.

Per Jeffrey Cox's trilogy (book 3, page 88), would you want the two B-26 Marauder Squadrons (69th & 70th) to be able carry torpedoes?

Observation - Why did those dumb ass American admirals put the brand new Fletcher at end of the column?!?

Michael's idea of allowing two US Army Squadrons to have a TT carrying B-26 is fascinating. My initial thoughts are to allow for the two Squadrons in a B-26 variant that carries TT. The squadrons would come into the game with just a few planes and the variant would be produced at like 2 planes per month to allow a slow fillout and then use of the two units.

Other thoughts:
1. With our changed timeline, I am going to restore the old Japanese DDs of the Momi-Class and such back to their original build. The Japanese converted a bunch of them into existing game start Patrol Boats and depot ships. We'll let them be DDs with a wealth of conversion opportunities at game start. Want to keep them as the equivalent of American Four-Pipers? Fine. Want to make them early ASW platforms? Fine. Want them as APDs? Fine. Let the player decide.

2. Am going to re-arrange the Dutch starting TFs and allow the LBC Hertog Hendrick to be added to the Dutch OOB. The 1047 Project is started before war breaks out, the ship is towed to Great Britain, it is fitted out and ends up in Java. How about a real Dutch Flagship? LIKE IT!

Because the dumb ass American admirals probably did not know enough about radar unlike Ching Lee, plus the brand new Fletcher probably had an inexperienced crew which the Admirals would have been aware of.

Just think if the DD Blue would have noticed a few enemy ships in August 1942 when it had picket duty.

We'll build just 4/Month and allow the build out to June 1945. Two Squadrons will be allowed this aircraft and we'll stick to the 69th and 70th (16 Planes each). This will allow the Allied player to have some toys but not too many.

They are, as in RL, two of three squadrons from the 38th Bombardment Group arriving in May 1942 with 5 and 4 planes respectively.

CA Tone Class- reduce number of FP, move a turret to rear? We've already added small 12 FP ships (CS) to OOB.

OK. Work that has been done:

1. Converted the 69th and 70th Squadrons of the 38th Bombardment Group to a TT carrying B-26. Set-up slow trickle of reinforcements for use throughout the war starting in late-May 42.

2. Have gone thru all the OLD Japanese DDs of the Momo--thru--Wakatake-Clas 2nd rate DDs. If they were converted to PG/PB they are now back to original configuration and the Japanese player may decide to keep them that way, convert them to APD--ASW--Etc... Some were not represented within AE so they have been added. Any ADDED are placed at Tokyo, Yokohoma or Hiroshima.

3. HOPEFULLY fixed the Omaha-Class CL conversion.

4. Am working on the addition of the Dutch BC Hertog Hendrick. Have asked Big B if he has this ship class done in AE terms so I don't have to reinvent the wheel by guessing.

5. A redeployment of the Dutch Fleet around the new BC provides for CLs and a DD screen.

I wish I had seen this earlier, but is there a reason why the USN DDs have their ASW capabilities nerfed? In some cases the number of ASW weapons are reduced and
all most all cases their ammo is reduced, most times cut in half.

Just got home after a four day trip to the cabin. My eldest has deer tags so we are hunting on-and-off from Yesterday until next Sunday.

Will write t everyone's queries in the morning after some serious sleep. Our 4 hour drive became 5.5 hours due to some SERIOUS snow in Wyoming. YIKES! Good news it the snow might truly help deal with our northern parts of the state burning up from forest fires.

ORIGINAL: cardas

Nice! Hopefully I don't come across as too negative by pointing out some issues directly :)

I have only taken a preliminary look at it for now but I do note that some errors still persist. From http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/fb.asp?m=4200191 the fixes from Sm GM and below in that post are still not in the database. Not a major issue in the big picture, but they should really be done.

E.g. now you are in a situation where the new, fancy Eendracht has 15cm guns that has less penetration than the 14cm guns on the old Japanese cruisers. Yet in reality all Dutch 15cm guns fired heavier rounds at a higher velocity, so unless they had very defective AP rounds they should without a doubt have better penetration.

Other errors (some inherited):
King George V (005): Same upgrade date as previous King George V slot (004) Issue inherited from stock database. Although the upgrade has no delay or damage or requirements so I'm not sure as to what's up with it.

Nevada (303): Has two slots (14, 15) with Brownings with the same ammo count, facing, and guns per "turret". Only the number is different. No idea what reason there would be to use two slots in this case instead of one slot with the number count added together. Issue inherited from stock database.

Pennsylvania (308, 309): Same as previous, Brownings in slots 12 and 13. Issue inherited from stock database.

West Virgina (336): Same as previous, Brownings in slots 12 and 13. Issue inherited from stock database.

Massachusets (376): Same upgrade date as previous Massachusets slot (375) Issue inherited from stock database.

Admiralty MMS (809): Can Upgrade instantly to APc-1 (810). Inherited from DBB, intentional? At least the bitmap shows a slightly longer vessel fro APc-1.

Tour de Cotes (910): Upgrades to empty ship class slot 2373.

Eendracht (994, 995, 996): Art is not included in the art file.

Grimsby RAN-I (166): Instantly upgrades to Grimsby RAN-II without delay (this is inherited from DBB). Intended?

Flying Fish (999, 1000): Don't put the mines of a submarine with special mine laying tubes in weapon slot 9. Slot 9 mines are exclusively launched from the torpedo tubes (and should have 0 number, 0 turret, 0 ammo) - or at least I think so. With how you've laid it out at the moment there might be problems using this submarine class for minelaying with the mines in weapon slot 9. The initial version (slot 998) does not have the mines in slot 9 and should therefore work without problems.

Tenryu (1008): Missing ammo for 25mm AA guns (slot 6 and 7).

Kuma (1016): Upgrade available to 1017 directly from start, intended?

Kuma (1017): No upgrade path from 1017 to 1018, probably not intended?

Kitakami (1028): Weapon oddities, you have for example two slots of rear facing DCs (weapon slot 9 and 14) and slot 10 is empty. I'm assuming the intention was to have 25mm AA guns in slots 9 and 10, but check it yourself.

Kitakami (1029): Two slots of Type 13 Radar (slot 7 and 13)

Type C (1317, 1318): Both have the same date (9/43), so if the first ship arrives in 9/43 it'd be able to upgrade instantly, intended?

Type D (1322, 1323): Same upgrade date issue as the Type C.

Shiratsuyu (1458, 1459): Has a right side AAMG (slot 10) without ammo.

Hiryu (1817): Has a 25mm AA slot (6) without ammo.

Hiryu (1819): Upgrades to empty ship class slot 1820.

Kamishima (1768, 1769): Two first weapon slots references empty device slots.


Following has radars that are not "All Sides" facing. Unsure if this actually matters though.
O16 Class (934)
Nagara (1038)
Mogami (1134)
Shimakaze (1503, 1504, 1505)
Heywood (2540)
C3-A Pres. Jackson (2542)

Following has ammo for their radars. Does it change anything ingame? I'd guess not. I'll list it anyway:
Colorado (342)
Repeat Benson (520)
Elan (884)
Tenryu (1004, 1005, 1010)
Yubari (1013, 1014)
Kuma (1018, 1019)
Kitakami (1029)
Tokoro (1072, 1073, 1074, 1075)
Minekaze (1411)
Amagi (1739)

Following has data for slots without a device (e.g. a weapon slot with ID = 0, but with say a facing other than "Front", or ammo or something specified anyway). Once again something that probably does not affect the game. Thought I could mention it anyway.
Jean Bart (781) - slot 12

IN RA the Hiryu's first upgrade is missing ammo on one of its 25mm guns. you prob fixed the initial missing ammo, but missed the upgrades. also the 3rd Agano class CL has a 15 inch gun turret that is RS instead of rear facing. Some of the later shokaku Kai upgrades in RA also have blank or missing AA guns.
