Hi
I'm trying my first game on TOAW4 and I've discovered the gamey possibilities of the UNDO button.
I'm playing german side in Sicily. I just can't move a toe I'm being heavily bombed every time and my units simply vanish. So I figured that I could undo deadly moves. I'm playing PBEM and I have a moral problem with that. It's unfair. But I had already seen that in previous TOAW versions.
Is there a home rule or something about this ? A button to press to prevent the use of the undo button ?
On the other hand, if I don't use it, my army is virtully pinned down. DO you have any advice to reduce/counter this aerial mass effect ?
Thx all and sorry for the noob question

It's been a while since I've PBEMed but the use of Undo was always by exception and with an explanation. Undo's are recorded in the playback; so unless he's equally new or not paying attention your opponent will know if you're abusing the feature. If you're playing a veteran, I'd expect pointed questions when he sees your turn playback. My advise would be to come clean and apologize in advance.

Aye. Should be a beep during playback when your opponent uses the undo.

Try tracing your path through forests/cities/hills, while avoiding moving along open roads. The well covered terrains reduce your chance of being spotted by air boys as well as the damaged suffered should you be interdicted. Of course that comes at a cost, your movement speed.

Well... in scenarios with a turn less than 24hrs... move by night, as well as utilising the terrain (if possible) what Annabelle suggested and... also check the weather. Cloud cover does help! Alas, not in scenarios or situations without modern planes and ELINT.

Klink, Oberst
