v2.3.4 is working well for PBEM. Lars and I are now in MJ44 and haven't encountered anything fatal. Yes, some work-arounds have been required, but the game is playable. Sounds like we better just hold here until the big wheels turn past this whole netplay thingy... Pete
I completely agree. I am currently playing this version with a long distance opponent (Australia). We have gotten through M/J'41 with out too much trouble. One minor one a while back which was resolved, and now the one posted in tech concerning the Algerian MIL. I highly recommend players go to this version. Stay there until Netplay is complete (which I have my doubts about).
Concerning Netplay, if I cant keep a wireless connection to it, then its fairly useless. Maybe I need a better router, or maybe Matrix/Slitherine do not have the necessary infrastructure. Even if MWiF Netplay was completely bug free and working 100%, if it means I have to pay more money just to play this game (router upgrade, or deal with cables running across the floor...which my wife already vetoed anyway) then forget Netplay. I don't see it as Steve's fault. Matrix is a terrible company for many reasons. I think they are forcing Netplay. I would rather see optionals, scenarios, and a manual convoy system added to 2.3.4
Conflict with the unexpected: two qualities are indispensable; first, an intellect which, even in the midst of this obscurity, is not without some traces of inner light which lead to the truth; second, the courage to follow this faint light. KvC
