Link works fine but I still get the same error.

Cantona66, which version of of the games are you on? I am on the latest Beta. Perhaps that is why it works for you but not for me?

Did a complete fresh install to version 1.08. Mod still crashes in the same way.This is the only mod currently installed.

Looks like this problem is linked to the game version in some way. Hubert indicated the size of some file have changed since the original release but did not say which ones or which releases. I suspect the changes were in version 1.04 or prior since the version notes say previous version save game files as far back as version 1.04 should work on the latest versions.

Thoughts?

1. How i can build german carriers, u-boat and torpedo boat units? I can't select them.
Those units are so low on procution list that it is impossible select them.

2. Are so italian unit names in Africa correct (example philippines paratrooper unit)?

3. UK can build Waffen SS cavalry unit!

You can remove the option in the editor for the Waffen SS unit. You will find this unit in more than one unlikely place.

The problem with the build list is related to the program and not the mod AFAIK. You can try disabling some of the unit builds in the editor and see if the problem solves itself.

Great mod! I recently bought the game and I'm still learning the ins and outs of basic gameplay, but curious if Italy can pass units through the Suez canal to assist in Abssynia? War has just started with Abssynia(July 17, 1938), and I've set the other Axis powers to AI controlled while I get used to the game, if that matters.

First of all kudos for all the work you put into this mod.

I am part of the way thru 1938 and am finding the AI takes forever to work thru whatever it is doing.

I have a hyper-threading 6 CPU 32GB intel computer. With a solid state OS hard Drive and a AMD 280X video card. So computer horsepower should not be an issue.

Is the issue the many new decision scripts?

I've had a bug with the version included in the community content download and Stannis, who seems to be hiding under the name of Crispy, advised me to report here.

I got 2 messages that Soviets had agreed the amended Polish split treaty, but they did not retreat back to BL, tho' the inhabitants of 3 hexes decided that they didn't like either option.




On a much lesser note, is the inability of Italian ships to pass through the Straits of Gibraltar in peacetime WAD or another bug?

Keep up the excellent work Cantona

I'm currently up to summer 1940 in this scenario, playing as the Allies

The missing Diplomacy issue that many have mentioned automatically sprang into life in Sep '40, albeit only for France (so far).

A few observations & possible bugs that I've noticed:


Possible Bugs

1. Britain can build Waffen SS Divisions from Sep '39 ?!

2. The Battle of the River Plate event flashed up despite Britain not yet involved in the war.

3. The cost of purchasing new British units and upgrades seems disproportionately high compared to France & USA (eg in Abyssinia) despite Tech & Production maxed out at level 5.

4. Still no British or even USA diplomacy? (admittedly both countries not yet at war - but surely this is not exactly realistic whatsoever?)

5. Despite having a massive naval presence in the Med, and being at war with Germany & Italy, it's surprising that France STILL can't access the Med via the Gibraltar Straits.

6. War rages with Germany & Italy v France, but Britain seems "stuck" at 73% mobilisation


Observations: (WARNING - POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERTS)

1. Interestingly Germany declared war on & attacked France early in September '39.

2. Norway was invaded in April '40 by Germany as per historical timeline.

3. Poland, Holland & Belgium have not yet been attacked by Germany.

4. Britain has surprisingly not come to France or even Norway's aid, despite Italy also following Germany's lead in attacking France & declaring war on Norway. Frustrating to watch them struggle when a joint defence of Europe would assist them massively, but interesting nonetheless (unrealistic though IMHO?).

Hi Ghostrider293
I am looking at your in put now, i think some are easy to fix. But the mod is mostly designed to play as Axis against allies so not that developed for the other side.

Many thanks for the reply and for creating this scenario Cantona.

I must admit, I didn't realise it was meant to be played as Axis.

That said, I've put many many hours into this scenario so far, and am really enjoying it, so it would be great to see it through to the end.

I'm guessing any fixes you're able to make won't be compatible with my current campaign?

Thanks again.

...playing this in the steam community DLC version and cannot purchase carriers, subs, or torpedo boats as the Germans. They are at the bottom of the list which extends beyond the normal boundary and I can't click on them to purchase.

See screen shot...

Did you opt-in to the open Beta on Steam yet? This issue (and many others including a great overall speed of turns/processing improvements), were

fixed in the new Beta version that was just released a few days ago. Also, if you haven't yet, subscribe to the forum on Steam. That's how I first heard

of it and all the details about it.

Nope! Very cool, will do this tonight! Excited to hear this because I LOVE this campaign, only complaints were the inability to build subs and carriers as Germany and the turn lengths.

I would like to try this scenario. Downloaded successfully, but when I try to start it, it does not appear in the available scenarios box. I notice in the campaigns folder on my hard drive there is no .dat file for this scenario. I assume this is the problem, but don't know for sure.Is there any way someone could send it to me, or correct me if this is not the problem?

Thanks for the help.

hi

first test (now at december 1939) as Germany

1) the Axis economy is very strange: at 1st september 1939 Germany after buying every possible unit still have 5.455 MPP in bank.

2) Cipro alternative "to Italy after WWI" don't work: stay UK

3) the agressivity of France AI is high: full assault against sigfrido line every turn with no resoult

4) in march 1939 italy have the decision of a full offensive in Abissinia, paying the cost, both economical than diplomatich with no apparent effect

5) Romania and Finland don't have reserch limit: they can have 5 level and only pay 100 mpp

6) this is probabily a random factor but France is in war and UK is still neutral (79%) at december 1939

7)thanks for the very intersting scenario

Hi. I'm trying to play this game as Germany, but I can't recruit any units before september 1939. That means I won't even have enough troops to invade Poland. Is this a bug?

Hi Cantona, unfortunately this bug has been not fixed. Germany cannot buy all the things contained in the white square.

Cantona66, thank you for updating the mod! Do you have another download link other than Dropbox? I have tried several

times to download it but for some reason, it always fails at around 24mb. Perhaps Mediafire or Mega? Also, when will this update be put into the Steam version? Thanks again.
