Hello everyone!

We are going to start two more games so that after these 4 games every player has played every major power.

In this game we have all the same rules and house rules as before (If anyone notices mistake in optional rules, please tell me asap).

House rules:
-USSR - Japan pact (Basically playing the normal rules but without markers so based upon Garrison ratios. No attack in '39, and needs 2:1 in '40 for Japan or USSR to declare war).
-Only strategic bombing allowed as a night mission (all other missions must be performed by day).
-No strategic bombers 'teleport' behind a fighter screen. (Rules to be announced later).

This time we are playing as follows:
warspite1 Italy/Japan
Orm Germany
Mayhemizer CW/US/Nationalist Chinese
AllenK France/USSR/Communist Chinese

We decided not create more secret threads. Both sides will have one thread for Axis and one thread for Allies. When we comment games, we refer to game 1, game 2 etc.

Game 1 is our priority, then 2, 3 and 4. So game 4 will advance slowest.

The optional rules looks good.

And the added standing order that no submarines will be included in port strikes. Until cancelled, that is.

For clarification and my memory.

To break the pact you need 2:1 but the defensive garrison value is modified depending on year. So in reality the value needed is as follows.

4:1 in '40
2:1 in '41
1:1 in '42
2:3 in '43
1:2 in '44 and '45

Isn't this Game 3?

The only way to get good at playing your favorite/preferred Major Power is to play it's main enemy Major Power.

Nah, Game 3 is about to get started as well. In that game I get the honour to playing the Soviet Empire. Saving the civilization, as we know it, from destruction.

In this game, game 4, I get the honour of saving the civilization from the evil shackles of Democracy.

Yeah.. the quote by Churchill about it only being fair the Germans get the Italians as allies in WW2 since the CW had them in WW1 is quite appropriate.

The Italians are the most fun to play. When they get a good die roll, it's awesome.

Guys can I suggest the next area for concentration is getting game 4 to the French set up - just to check that the madexcept in 3 is a problem with 3 and not this current version?

Received and will shortly be on its way back to you for CW set up.

Hopefully you'll be able to do it without the MadEx's. My concern is these occurred when Production Planning was gone into and out of for checking CP placement. In Game 1 we have had the convoy routing problems, which are also related to the Production Planning form. Perhaps I am just being pessimistic but these are pointing to bugs in that area of the game with the latest version.

The valiant forces of the People's Revolutionary Army deploy in order to protect and preserve their Communist ideology.

Edit: Revised set-up for restart.

I did CW set up and saved the game. Then I proceeded to make sure that France is next. Game crashed. After reload everything went well.

What do you think happened? Is save file now corrupted? Can we continue or should I go back to previous save and redo CW set up?

Edit: I have noticed game sometimes crashes if I minimize game. I did that today, so it might be that too. Now I play with 2 screens (game in one screen and AAr in other) so normally I don't have to minimize game.

If it is corrupted then that is both game 3 and 4. I'm regretting moving to 2.3.9 now.....

What do peeps want to do? Carry on and risk it or start again (while we have not invested too much time in either game) - perhaps switching back?

I think we are OK as long as we continue to avoid continuing, or saving, a game after a MadExcept.

You get madexcept if you load using latest save that is sent to all?

If so, maybe we should go one save back are redo previous set up?
